"People are lonely because they build walls instead of bridges."
 
Non Violent Communication course

Feeling that you can't communicate with other people? Suffering from anger problems? Trying to remove violence from your life? In a relationship that could benefit from improving communication?

The Non-violent Communication teachings may be exactly what you need to change that. How often do we say the exact opposite of what we really want to say? Take this for example: "You are always watching TV instead of making an effort to help me do something", which is an accusation and we therefore get a defensive or aggressive reaction from the other person, when what we really want to say is "I miss you and wish we could spend more time together", which is a loving request and could be responded with love too? Learning to remove violence from our communication will allow us to be more sincere and actually improve our chances of getting what we are looking for. And the NVC techniques to do so are simple and yet extremely effective and can ultimately change the very basics of our communication. And build bridges instead of walls.

Waiting list only at this point.

LEARN THE TOOLS TO HEAL YOURSELF, BALANCE MIND-BODY-SPIRIT, AND REACH YOUR FULL POTENTIAL 

This course is comprised of the following elements:

60% wisdom talks: Yoga is a complete system of knowledge which leads to the understanding of life, oneself and the universe. Ancient Yoga philosophy/psychology teachings will be shared, that enable the awakening of the consciousness, balancing of the body, energy levels, emotions and mind, and alignment with a higher universal reality.

20% study and practice of Yoga postures: The human body is comprised of an underlying energetic distribution network made up of meridians, energy channels and thousands of energy points (chakras). When certain postures are being performed, a specific energetic alignment occurs, and the energetic structure of the body starts to shift. As a result, one's vibration is raised, supporting key emotional and mental shifts, as well as attunement with higher states of consciousness.

20% sharing and connection: An opportunity to share the deep inner transformation that participants go through, as the identification with the lower vibrations of the ego lessens and more frequent states of unconditional love, joy and peace start to occur.

Note: This course is not exclusively for people with trauma or Posttraumatic Stress Disorder. There is extensive scientific research about the positive impacts Yoga has on depression, stress, anxiety, emotion regulation, mental well-being, addictions, mindfulness, concentration, as well as various mental health conditions. Anyone keen to move towards a more balanced, peaceful, loving, and joyful life is welcome.

Facilitator: Catia is a Yoga teacher, holistic health practitioner and also Mind-body intern psychotherapist at Auckland Hospital. Yoga came into Catia's life in her late 20's, when life had struck her with a great personal tragedy that had caused all her well-formed belief systems to come crashing down. She was immediately drawn to its ancient teachings, almost feeling as though she had heard them all before, and all that her teacher was doing was reminding her of knowledge that had been long forgotten. Catia was able to rebuild her life based on the foundations of peace, love, kindness, freedom, empathy, truthfulness, and a deep sense of connection with the Universe, other people, and herself as well. She has since deepened her Yoga practice and expanded into areas such as Psychotherapy, Mindfulness, Buddhism, Hinduism, Gnosis, Reiki and Mind-Body healing. Catia's passion is to combine the wisdom of Eastern philosophies with the science of Western psychologies, to heal people and help them reach their full potential.

It supports us in connecting to our true nature and balancing the physical, emotional and mental aspects of our life, elevating consciousness and opening a pathway to the absolute. It is an exciting path to inner transformation, which removes the veils of illusion and moves us towards liberation and emotional freedom. Tantra incorporates knowledge that is also explored by astronomy, biology, parapsychology, anatomy, meditation, medicine, music, philosophy, art, sexuality, psychology, religion, science, quantum physics, yoga and other traditions.
