Befriending your Nervous System

Finding more peace, joy and balance
within your body and your life

An immersive 4-session online course for understanding how the state of your Autonomic Nervous System influences your quality of life, improving your relationship with your ANS, and applying this knowledge so you can experience more connection and happiness.

Your behaviour is strongly influenced by your physicality. If you want to change your behaviour, your feelings, your thinking, your overall experience of life, you need to get to know your body and your nervous system.

I have designed a 4-session course that helps you with exactly that.​
 

If you want to learn how to better deal with the emotional challenges and frictions of work, relationships, family, neighbours, bureaucracy, traffic, and handle yourself with a bit more grace and ease, this course is for you. In this immersive 4-week online experience, you will understand how your autonomic nervous system works, why it matters for how you feel about life and yourself, and how you can turn your nervous system into an ally.

 

The course is for people of all ages who are curious to get to know their system better, willing to explore their own experience, open to engaging with others around this topic and to preparing/practicing before and after sessions.

 

It takes place on four dates in May, in a small group, online on Zoom, as a live event, with recordings made available afterwards.

"Sina's breathwork sessions are transformative, to put it simply. I am the type of person that doesn't feel comfortable being vulnerable and letting go, but Sina creates such a safe and comfortable journey that it is easy to let resistance go and receive healing. I've been to many breathwork and self healing journeys but Sina's work is powerful and nourishing, not depleting like other methods can be. Thank you!."
