IN THIS EPISODE – Heidi, Libby, and Kym talk with Irene Lyon, nervous system expert, who teaches people around the world how to work with the nervous system to transform trauma, heal body and mind, and live full, creative lives. After graduating as a Feldenkrais Practitioner Irene went deeper into the somatic world, studying the work of Peter Levine and Somatic Experiencing and Kathy Kain’s Somatic Practice. Using this unique blend of understanding, Irene assists people to address stored trauma and build their own capacity. Through this “capacity building” Irene offers ways Feldenkrais enthusiasts and Practitioners can use ‘Trauma Aware’ practices to create a safer more inclusive Awareness Through Movement and Functional Integration experience. Irene’s insights suggest the majority of people experience dysregulation of their nervous system in some form and believes that education about the nervous system such as the hierarchy of freeze, fight, flight and social engagement can assist in engaging more fully in the Feldenkrais process and engaging more fully in life. A truly remarkable conversation!
