Somatic Experiencing® practitioner & Feldenkrais Practitioner
What Irene says :
Sparks were flying and people are feeling it via the photos!
I worked with Anastasia a few years ago and the difference between then and now is power and truth. She is in her power. She is in her truth. And when a photographer is in these two elements and the person she is capturing is in these elements for themselves, magic happens.
My community has been feeling the vibes via my new photos and it is so great to have images that ooze my energy and intention. Anastasia has found her own personal power and truth, and in my opinion when any artist a photographer is in these two elements, plus the person she is capturing is in their own element, magic happens. We worked together a few years ago and it was good to reconnect and work together again and I can't wait for the next time we can stir up some of that magic
About Irene :
Irene Lyon, MSC. and nervous system expert, teaches people around the world how to work with the nervous system to transform trauma, heal body and mind, and live full, creative lives.
To date, her online work has reached people in over 57 countries – but you can often find her teaching with Elia Mrak at their signature Up & Down workshops or hiking in the mountains or along the Pacific ocean in her hometown of Vancouver, British Columbia.
She has her Master’s in Biomedical and Health Science and also has a knack for making complex info easy for ALL of us to understand and apply to our lives. She has extensively studied and practices the works of Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais, Peter Levine (founder of Somatic Experiencing) and Kathy Kain (founder of Somatic Practice).
A big reason we love Irene's work :
Irene helps people work through toxic shame, anxiety, and depression (just to name a few) by teaching her students the non-dumbed down science of their bodies. Research, which is thankfully becoming theory, is telling us that trapped and unresolved survival stress, those fight, flight, and freeze response (aka: untreated early and developmental trauma) are the root cause of many, if not all, chronic health issues of the body and mind.
Irene's mission is to teach the world this essential education along with the practices that will give people the tools to become their own medicine so they can break free from dis-ease and get back to living with vitality and freedom. She has two online programs (The 21-Day Nervous System Tune-Up and SmartBody SmartMind) that have reached thousands of people in over 60 countries and her participants unequivocally say this has been the missing link in healing for them. She also teaches in-person workshops that focus on recapturing our sense of curiosity and play via intention-based movement.
You can get to know her a bit more, check out her program, and watch her binge-worthy YouTube videos via her website, IreneLyon.com.
