Everything you’re experiencing in your life right now is a direct result of what’s happening in your nervous system.
If you are regularly facing restlessness, anxiety or other forms of chronic stress, that make you feel disconnected from your body or too much in your head, it is usually a sign that your nervous system is not regulated.
Many of us are experiencing an overactive nervous system due to an increasingly stressful lifestyle. During this mode, your sympathetic nervous system is activated, which causes your heart rate and blood pressure to increase, your muscles to constrict, and your digestion to take a break. In this state, the body releases cortisol, adrenaline, noradrenaline, and a host of hormones that may decrease white blood cells.
Living in this mode takes up an enormous amount of energy, and our bodies cannot keep up with the demands long term. Over time, the body and mind begin to shut down and we get illness and disease as a result.
The good news is, you can reshape your nervous system, with somatic tools that work to rewire your brain and body.
My work is focused on nervous system regulation. I am teaching techniques to rebalance your nervous system while managing the ups and downs of your daily life. This will help you to reenter a state of calm, mental relaxation and physical ease. The newly gained knowledge can support a long-term shift towards connecting to your inner peace.
Nervous system regulation is the foundation to everything else in your life. It’s what allows you to support yourself on the path towards:
I’m Maria. After 14 years of work in a large international corporation, I felt like something was missing, but I couldn’t quite understand what it was. I didn’t even know who I really was anymore. So I decided to literally create space between me and everything I had known so far. I quit my job, gave up my apartment and almost all of my belongings. At the age of 36 I embarked on a solo journey to myself, leaving my old safe life to travel the world with almost all my belongings fitting in my backpack. I left with the goal of feeling again who I actually am and what I really need.
The distance and new calm made me realize that I had lost myself under the chronic stress of my lifestyle.For the first time, I allowed myself to face uncomfortable emotions like loneliness and disorientation that I had been running away from under my old fast-paced lifestyle.
During that journey I dedicated my time to educating myself in the field of emotional wellbeing, training as a 600 h certified Hatha & Vinyasa Yoga teacher, as well as further eductions in Meditation, Trauma sensitive somatic practices, Burnout treatment & prevention, Philosophie, Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra.
Today I mainly teach group and individual sessions in person in Berlin or online.
Maybe our path will cross and I hope to support you on your own journey to yourself.
See you soon 🙂 Much love Maria
