Get Back into Your Body

Nadia grew up in a warzone. And yes, that was intense. From an early age, Nadia experienced her nervous system going into particular mechanisms that disconnected her from her sensory experience in her body. Add this to the actual social and cultural pressures of being successful and you get someone who is disconnected from an embodied experience of being a human. 


Nadia hit a breaking point in life where she realized she had to listen and reconnect with her body; changing the way he treated her body; her nutrition; her career. She started to understand the mechanisms of her nervous system and developed tools to cope with different situations in life and became an embodiment coach.


We live in an ever changing world at the constant edge of anxiety. When we go through tough moments, feelings or experiences, if you don’t have the right training or tools, something deep in your nervous system has us going into this default pattern of disconnecting with your body and not allowing you to feel what your body is really telling you.  


You need to learn to listen to our body. You need to sit with all the layers of pain and discomfort to actually clear it and find balance between the opposing energies within you; the Masculine and Feminine energy; the “do” vs the “feel”. In this episode, Bailey and Nadia talk about finding balance between these energies and how to regulate yourself to feel empowered and cope with the different curve balls that life throws at you. 


If the world; your job; or something is making you feel anxious, unbalanced, or “out of your body”, then this episode is for you. Nadia gives great, simple and actionable tools that will help you ground yourself, reconnect with your body and find balance that will make you feel good with your body.
