"Nina’s insight has fostered so much clarity and calm, helping me find a still point from which to move in both my professional and personal lives."
Two years after being injured, and despite my own yoga and movement practices and the help of several healers : osteopath, PT, acupuncturist , my walking was unbalanced with a limp, my range of motion was limited to very small steps.
Then, I met Nina Be. With her clear eye she found the where, how and when the blockade occurred : an emotional wound trapped in my body a very long time ago-recurring with life events. I didn't explain anything nor did I tell her the story. She just watched me standing, walking and she figured out the core meanings of my injury : what was held and the resonance in my body, my limbs, my organs. Her sharp eye worked like an MRI that would be able to diagnose and also find solutions.
I went for 3 sessions, and I encountered genuine generosity. She accompanied me. The first session unlocked my hip and released the emotions that were stuck inside, they went out very softly, very peacefully..The second one I relearned the pleasure of walking. In the third one I learned I could go forward.
This work goes beyond psychosomatics, yoga therapy. I didn't talk nor did I take yoga poses. Nina uses her extended knowledge about yoga, energy and trauma to tailor what is necessary at the very moment. For me her work is close to applied philosophy on how to take what life is. She put me in relaxation positions stabilized with sand bags with comforting weight at strategic parts of my body. I remember she said : "here we do not want any pain" . And she described what my locked body position would express to her.Then my hips, my liver, my lungs, my heart unlocked like a domino. I found my body and my mind attuned in peace.
I am a neuroscientist trained in integral yoga and despite my knowledge and my practice I wasn't able to see and unlock what was hidden in my hip- My luck was to meet a generous healer in Nina Be.I went home with materials to use to stabilize what was done during the sessions.
I am dancing again."
"Within this work is where I cultivate the skills and capacity to courageously show up and care for myself. This is a blessing that will stay with me for the rest of my life."
