“What can I do in-between sessions?”
This is BY FAR the most frequent question I hear from clients.
For the first time, I’ve organized my favourite DIY healing strategies
into a powerful 6-week (+1) program.
> Say hello to BYOM
Bringing together neuroscience + yogic wisdom,
we will come together in community to support your nervous system with
body geometry (asana + mudra)
+ lifestyle insights from Ayurveda.
We’ll talk a bit about how research findings on psychobiology can help us understand
what the heck is going on when your body/mind is freaking out
+ why exactly it is that these remedies work so well to calm + soothe
(don’t worry, I promise we’ll explore this in a snack-sized, digestible way).
And we are going to put it into practice together,
so that all of this goodness can settle into your cells + psyche
(because there are limits to what Google can do for you).
These are medicines that I have used
–and continue to use–
in my own life.
They have supported me, and so many people I have worked with, through hard times:
dealing with trauma symptoms
This is not just about ways to cope.
This is about reclaiming your health + your self.
This is radical, transformative self-care
that has the power to re-shape your relationship with life
(because neuro-plasticity is real).
The focus of this program is simple:
to offer proven + accessible practices that YOU can easily incorporate into your day
to rest, repair and build resilience.

Join me for the trauma-informed BYOM series
“I would recommend working with Karishma to anyone interested in personal exploration in a somatic way. Anyone who wants more than what’s usually offered at yoga studios.”
> Tell me more!
I get it. You’re a busy bee.
But I don’t want this to be another one of those things that you sign up to do, come to a few classes, and then forget all about it (we’ve both been there).
So, supported shifts:
I’m committed to this program meeting you where you are at.
Included is a 1-1 preparation session before we begin, as well as a 1-1 follow-through session to check-in, trouble-shoot and integrate after we finish.*
(*if you’d like further support, additional 1-1 sessions may be booked at a reduced rate during the program.)
> Let’s break it down:
1 x 75-minute individual scaffolding session (preparation + craniosacral balancing)
6 x 1.5-hr weekly group nourishing + re-sourcing sessions of embodied learning
Weekly resources to deepen your learning
1 x 1-hr post-program individual integration session
1 x personalized treasure chest of healing and resilience practices,
New neural circuits through the embodied practices you will explore!
“I’m coming back to Karishma’s workshop because she creates a space where you feel held and supported in your healing process.”
> Feel better your way
++ Understand the neuro-biology of why you are feeling what you are feeling
++ Explore skills to soothe your nervous system through science + yoga
++ Identify what works for you, and what doesn’t, based on your constitution, personality and life story
++ Create a personalized medicine bag of simple and nourishing practices for life
that you can return to, again and again
Past participants say:
“I would recommend BYOM to everyone, and especially people who are feeling they need support to get re-balanced and find more ways to find resiliency practices in their everyday lives. I think i’m noticing a lot earlier when I’m getting off balance and needing to calm down and get re-centered. It has helped me a lot to notice when I’m getting stressed and where and that I am able to take a pause and try to do something to break the tension.”

> Are you sure about this?
The sessions aren’t going to look like your average yoga studio class (or what I imagine this is, it’s been a while tbh).
It’s going to be gentle (but that’s not always the same as easy).
This may go outside your comfort zone (and i’m not talking about over-stretching your hamstrings).
*If you’ve never worked with me before, please schedule a free 15-minute appointment to be sure that this is the right program for you.
