The ReSourced Healer: Therapeutic yoga & Ayurveda for empaths, healers, and helping professionals
You have a gift: you can hold space for people and make them feel safe and seen. Whether it be professionally or just how you show up for people in your life, you have the ability to facilitate healing for the people you come in contact with.
You have a vision: to create a better world by relieving the suffering of the people around you. This vision gives you a sense of purpose. You’re dedicated and passionate about using your gift to fulfill your purpose.
But the problem is–you are so attuned to the needs and wounds of those around you that you often ignore or neglect your own. You may feel a lack of clarity about what your needs are. But you know that you feel overwhelmed, overextended, and depleted.
You sometimes wonder whether this work that you’re so passionate about is the cause of this overwhelm. You want to keep using your gift, you want to keep bringing healing to the world, but you don’t know how to do it in a way that also takes your own needs and wounds into consideration.
Becoming a resourced healer means that you no longer compromise your own wellbeing at the expense of others’. It means learning to offer yourself your own gift of self-compassion and nurturance first and foremost. A resourced healer knows how to tap into the well of their own knowing, and how to reach for the kind of support that will truly make their work sustainable.
The fields of yoga, yoga therapy, and Ayurveda provide both a lens to help assess and understand the state of imbalance that you’re currently in, and simple but powerful tools to help shift your state from depleted to resourced healer. In my work with private yoga therapy clients, I have used these disciplines and their teachings to help healers & empaths nurture and replenish themselves, so they can avoid overwhelm, compassion fatigue, and burnout.
In this program, you’ll learn:
- How to assess and understand your current state of imbalance
- How to identify the stories and patterns that have led you to this place
- How to reframe your understanding of your gift and your purpose
- How to create supportive practices and routines so that you can continue to do your work sustainably
At the end of our time together, you will add the following practices to your resourced healer toolkit:
- How to create more ease, consistency, and stability in your schedule
- Relaxation and meditation practices you can reach for daily
- Meaningful rituals to help you connect to your true nature
- Gentle asana practice to help process & release stress
- True nourishment in the form of self-care that’s tailored to your unique needs
We will meet for a weekend mini-retreat to create supportive community, engage in discussion, and experience practices that can support and nurture our nervous systems. We will also meet for 2 follow-up integration calls online via Zoom. The online calls can be accessed easily through your phone or computer, with or without video. Calls will be recorded and made available to you if you cannot join live.
Saturday & Sunday: March 16 – 17, 12:00 – 5:00pm at Yoga Yoga Westgate
Wednesdays: March 20th and 27th at 12:00pm (60 minutes each)
In addition to our meeting times, you will have access to a workbook to help deepen your personal understanding of the material, and to audio recordings so you can easily practice on your own.
This program is being offered as part of Fanny’s final project for yoga therapy training. By signing up, you agree to complete a self-assessment at the beginning, and again at the end of the program. These will be turned in to the instructor.
