Behind the Scenes: What I Use to Run My Practice
I get asked all the time about what tools and techniques I use in my teachings. Since a lot of my sessions are private sessions, and therefore custom tailored for unique situations, there is not just one set of tools I work with. I mix and match all the time, to make sure my students get the best time and space has to offer in that very moment. But before I start with any of this we first start a few sessions of practical therapy to evaluate what we will work on, and more important ‘why’. This will ultimately decide how we get to work.
Besides the traditional tools, I often like to test new ones as well. I’m a firm believer in of embracing development since all inspiration ultimately comes from the same source. Personally, I love to combine the practical and the spiritual, because it doesn’t happen very often that we are blessed with months of recovery time, meaning I have to fit my programs into a few weeks making sure my yogis will be recharged and good to go again.
I do have one rule of thumb – I stay away from standard methods since I feel every soul is unique. To give you an example, when I use mantras in my practice, I make sure they are calculated back to the time of birth, ensuring purest states of consciousness during meditation practice. (For more details on personal mantras connect with me via email@example.com )
One thing I see a lot of people do is trying to use only free tools. Depending on your needs, this might be beneficial enough for you. I encourage any form or type of meditation, yes also free tools. When you are feeling great and just want to lay back and relax, free tools can certainly get you there. Those who are not looking to make a big lifestyle change, free tools are sort of an ‘ultralight’ version of a teacher. Free tools do however often cost you much more time since there is no actual teacher who can check on your posture, breathing techniques, chakras, temperature mantra sounds, and so on. This is also the main reason why many people claim ‘I tried meditation and it’s not working for me’.
Finally, every once every three months I evaluate my methods, and tools and get rid of any “leaks”. Not using it? Out it goes!
I hope I gave you some more insight on how we get to work. I always love to hear new ideas or challenges you encounter, so please do stay in touch.
