“What can I do in-between sessions?”
This is BY FAR the most frequent question I hear from clients.
It’s what led me to organize my favourite DIY healing strategies
into a powerful 6-week (+2!) 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 explore the amazing vagus nerve and 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 learning how you can reclaim 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.
It 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 2-hr weekly group nourishing + re-sourcing sessions of embodied learning
Weekly email re-cap + additional resources in between sessions, to deepen your practice
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.”
The next session of BYOM runs May 14 to June 16, 2019.

> 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.
> The small print
Please be sure you can make all 6 group sessions and are committed to this process before you register, as there are no refunds. I understand that sometimes life happens, so if needed, you may transfer your registration to another person; this will need to happen BEFORE we begin the group sessions. This is sacred work and, to support our container once we begin, the circle will be closed to new people. Finally, be sure to schedule your 75-minute Scaffolding session BEFORE we begin on May 14.
