Kinesiology, melted plastic, Stuck, unstuck, unstuckness, workshop, Yoga
Got a full schedule today. Heck, the whole weekend is a bit of a full schedule, but anyways…
After teaching my class at noon (fingers crossed the people who called actually show up!!), I’m heading off to this:
It’s so exciting! Nadine and Kerry’s workshop combines yoga and kinesiology with an emphasis on getting ‘unstuck’. Just like the title says!
I’ve got a lot of time for kinesiology (and of course, yoga!), because at the very beginning of trying to deal with PTSD, it was exceedingly helpful for me.
You can read about the slightly round-about way that I ended up seeing a kinesiologist right here. Funnily enough, I haven’t written about the treatments I had at the time – I think that part of my story is a little too compressed still. Even now. Kind of like trying to evaluate a piece of melted plastic where the former shape has collapsed into something indistinguishable.
Anyway, kinesiology is a very, VERY cool technique for helping shift energetic/emotional states, and I strongly suspect that at the time it was one of the things – no exaggeration – that saved my life.
Combine that with some yoga as led the fabulous Nadine, and I’m expecting today to be very powerful!
And the timing is awesome. In case you haven’t noticed, I’m feeling a little stuck right now. Okay, A LOT stuck. I’ve been hanging out for this, and now it’s happening today. HOORAY!
The rest of this post contains bits and pieces of a comment I left on Nadine’s blog as well as her reply, which all kinda relates to unstuckness…
This is part of what I wrote:
…the braver we all are, and the more we share about our fears and bravery, the better it is for everyone in the long term. Here you are, doing your pioneering work of bravery and courage and hoping. And that does inspire others, including me!
Seems we’re all carrying these packages of loss and sadness and anger around and unless we learn to unpack them and deal with them effectively, it doesn’t matter how old we get, we’ll always be wishing life was different than it is.
And what I want is a life where I’m supremely happy to be wherever I am at all times…
Nadine’s reply comment was:
I got a bit teary when I read this! Because that is EXACTLY what the workshop is about. Finding a gentle way into the fun and pleasure of life just as it is. Now.
And I’m with you. I’m totally hanging out for the workshop too. Because all this stuff?
It’s coming up because it wants to be cleared.
And I sincerely hope (please-please-please-please) that she’s right!
Here’s to a more successful yoga teaching expedition today, AND to getting a little freer and happier!
Yep, gotta get some flow back in my life, stat!
And I recommend that you make sure you’re getting some flow happening, too. 🙂
have a wonderful workshop! i wish i could be there, a so many thousands of miles away!
It was so lovely to meet you yesterday! I’m looking forward to seeing how things shift for us all. I clicked over to read about when you first saw a Kinesiologist – amazing. Would be so interesting to hear more about that. xx

I am begging Nadine and Kerry to do another workshop next March when I’m in Aus! Hope you had a wonderful day!
Very cool- I hope you have a blast!
When I first read ‘kinesiology’ and your description I was quite confused- here in Canada Kinesiology refers to the scientific study of human kinetics or movement… and is a four year University degree, usually resulting in Gym Teacher or Athlete training… that sort of thing.
But I see perhaps it’s ‘Applied Kinesiology’- at least what I could gather from a wiki search?
Anyhoo- funny how terms can be so different 🙂
Can’t wait to hear more about it!
Maybe I should answer that one! The Kinesiology I do is actually “Holistic Kinesiology” which has developed from Applied Kinesiology (which is usually used in Chiropractic and focuses on the physical).
Holistic Kinesiology uses muscle monitoring to identify and correct imbalances on physical, biochemical, psychological, electromagnetic and spiritual levels.
Maybe have a look at my site, there’s more info there (www.awakenkinesiology.com).
Hope that helps 🙂 Kerry
Ohh! Yes that does help- Thank you Kerry! I’ll be checking out the link 🙂
I wish I could attend this workshop! and I’ve been doing “holistic kineseology” for over a year now for my back. he is a chiropractor who I believe is a medical intuitive. I can’t explain what he does, it just works…I just call him my “mojo man”!
Hi you guys!
Oh, the hype!
But it will be really interesting to see how we all shift in the days and weeks that come.
Svasti, it was so awesome to have you in the room on Saturday! I don’t know about you, but I feel I still need to do quite a bit of integrating.

@Emma – Thanks Emma!
@Kerry – VERY lovely to meet you, too! When I get the chance, I’ll certainly write more about my previous kinesiology experiences. And I’m sure I’ll be seeing you again! 🙂
@Rachel @ Suburban Yogini – Well, you never know! The first two workshops they advertised sold out so fast I think it shocked them! So it could be the start of a beautiful thing. I reckon there’s lot of people who need un-sticking, and more than once…
@EcoYogini – Glad that Kerry could clarify for you. I actually used to work with chiropractors years ago, so I’ve experienced that form of kinesiology, too.
@Kerry – Thanks for the helpful explanation!!
@linda – As above, yeah, I’ve experienced some talented chiropractors and therapists who work with kinesiology. But also, those who use the holistic version, as Kerry has described. It really is a wonderful form of therapy and it’s a shame it isn’t more well known. I really needs to be.
@nadinefawell – The couple of days I’ve had since have not entirely been conducive to integration. But I do feel like it’s coming. And I feel like I need to read your workshop notes again…
So great to find your blog. I need this workshop, but I’m too far from you’all (I’m in Ohio – in the states). My practice has been about a lot of meditation lately and a lot of stuff has been coming up. I don’t have many yoga classes near me, so I practice alone, in my home most of the time. Right now, I need the comfort of others, so I’m planning to attend a new class Thursday morning. So glad you had the breakthroughs and are getting unstuck! I love your blog, BTW.
@Namaste_Heather – Thanks for popping over! There’s plenty of value in practicing with others, but you know what? There’s also value in practicing alone, and reaching out to feel that actually, we’re not really alone at all. If you know what I mean!
