Healing from anger and frustration

Healing and making sense of it all

This week the Manchester community has really been put to the test physically, mentally and spiritually. The massive support locally and from around the world has been overwhelming making the community stronger. Everyone will feel some sort of emotion and we are all different, it could be anger, grief, frustration and so on. How on earth do people survive and pull through after such a horrific act of violence and what will the outcome be? Many affected will be running around on empty for the next few weeks, months, years and even longer. By empty I don’t mean financially but I mean chi, prana, vitality and life force. Below is the peace vigil which took place outside the Manchester town hall on Tuesday May 23rd, 6pm 2017.

Today, let’s take a look at some energy cultivation exercises that will help connect us to deep rooted emotional blockages. This needs to be done at a slow moderate pace that would assist and not inhibit digestion. The tongue should stay moist and the heart rate should not increase. The exercise we are going to look at is called ‘Breathing squats’.

  • Take a conformable stance that is wide enough for you to squat down between your legs.
  • Exhale on the way down and then inhale on the way up to a comfortable standing position.
  • Keep your torso upright with the weight between the balls of your feet and your heels.
  • Breathe through your nose if you can. if you need to exhale through your mouth, purses your lips to keep a little tension in them
  • The pace at which you raise and lower yourself should perfectly match your breathing rate. Your breathing rhythm should stay the same throughout the exercise. If your breathing speeds up reduce the depth

I know a lot of you have done them with me in my sessions. We bring ‘intention’ to the exercise and then take our ‘attention’ to the ‘intention’. This helps to focus the mind in a form of meditation and let the energy flow. As you move focus on a cloud that you can connect with or one of the chakra colours from the chart. Imagining the colour infusing every cell in our body, this will help to remove blockages that show up as:

  • past injury
  • current pain
  • stability issues
  • Tight muscles (yang) Breathe in Yin
  • Loose muscle (yin) Breathe out Yang

Real healing is the self-care of a person consciously done on a spiritual, emotional, mental and physical level. We need to listen to our inner self – the most important person is our self. How can we look after others if we are not well our self? Our emotions affect our physical body. We express ourselves in everyday life with language such as “I am sick to the stomach”, “My heart is broken in two”, “Go with my gut feeling”. All our organs are physically and emotionally connected to the brain. You must have heard the saying ‘Gut brain’. Not only do organs react to emotions but an organs reaction can determine a behavioural pattern. We are all different in our experience with organ dysfunction.

Our body retains the memory of trauma. Physical trauma is direct and causes immediate pain in the body. The brain records the body pain and emotion attached to it all at the same time. Clients swear to me that their injury is only muscular-skeletal. However, everything is stored in our psychological and physical unconscious minds. Psychological aggression and trauma create a more insidious breach of our defence, leaving a memory imprinted deep down inside the body and generally it will go to the weakest links, our most vulnerable organs.

Her background spans over 25 years with formal training in classical ballet, modern dance, tap, national choreography, stage production and theatre. Her formation includes Pilates, Thai bodywork, Yoga, GYROTONIC, GYROKINESIS and anatomical studies.

Her fascination with questioning the traditions of modern medicine and fascination with searching for meaningful answers has taken her in many different directions and has offered her an abundance of opportunities gaining a wealth of knowledge. “I tried many movement modalities and extended my search after experiencing fascia, because of its simplicity in movement. Quickly, I noticed my own body changing as well as the bodies of my own clients. In the last 25 years of teaching I’ve developed a workout unique to Yoga Anatomy". Throughout her studies Nisha has done numerous dissections with Julian Baker and Cery Davies and has the opportunity to take lectures and courses from Robert Schleip, Joanne Avisons, Tom Myers, Matt Wallden, Emma Lane, Gary Carter, Paul Chek, Dan Hellman, Peter Blackaby, James de Silva plus many many more Nishas teaching method promotes reflective self-discovery and provides the requirements to integrate a shift in consciousness for attaining individual goals.
