Learning to trust the Wisdom of your body in order to thrive

You often expect a lot from yourself and therefore from your body, forgetting that the rhythm in our society didn't leave time for our body to adapt to the fast-pace and expectations. Luckily, Your body is wise! It has an inner wisdom and it knows if the price you are paying to survive the Urban Jungle is high.

This training is about recognising patterns in how you are living your life, to recognise the body's signals. To survive in modern life, you sometimes need to set your own needs and longings aside. You might ignore some stress complaints in your body. You will learn how to make a conscious heart-felt choice about yourself and the life you want to live, while using your body’s wisdom in this decision process.
