Free Guided Practices

Embodiment takes practice. This is why we developed these free resources, recordings of embodied guided practices to support practitioners in their own journey,  as well as to share with their clients. 

Here you will find guided practices led by Katarina Gadjanski and Tasha Colbert to help you connect to sensations, ground yourself, regulate your nervous system, explore movement, embody resourceful states… and much more!

 

We hope you enjoy working experientially in an embodied way - in the comfort of your own homes.
 

This two-part guided practice, facilitated by Katarina Gadjanski, will help you resource yourself through grounding and breathing and explore the resources you have in your life and how to use them for self-regulation and calming your body & mind. 

In Part 1 we will do some grounding practices and circular breathing, also known as the earth breathing. 

Part 2 will take you into creative imagination - visualising you are a tree and nourishing your tree body through your roots. You will then be encouraged to explore what are the 'roots' (practices) in your life that ground, centre and resource your body and soul. You will also be instructed on how to use these resourceful practices for self-care and re-wiring your nervous system

This is a guided movement meditation facilitated by Katarina Gadjanski.

This guided practice will help you ‘drop’ from being in your head and thoughts to being present in your body.  

 

It will help you connect with the felt sense of your body and explore what your body is holding.  The practice starts with some simple grounding and breath work and is followed by 20 mins of mindfulness of movement practice. 

The invitation is to listen to your somatic self by becoming aware of the sensations in different body parts and to allow free-form movement and self-expression. 

In this guided movement practice, facilitated by Tasha Colbert, we will be exploring the support of the ground and supportive self-touch.

 

This resourcing guided practice is particularly useful for when feeling overwhelmed, with low energy or needing to direct care to self.

We start on the floor with connecting to the back body, sensing weight and gravity. Self support is guided through use of touch and gentle movement. 

 

This embodied practice was recorded LIVE at Embodied Woman session in June 2024.

This guided practice, facilitated by Katarina Gadjanski, will help you regulate your nervous system through grounding and circular breathing (also known as earth breathing).

 

This embodied exercise can help you shift 'difficult' sensations in your body, such as constriction, tension and pain. It can also help you move the unpleasant and 'stuck' sensations that your body might be holding.  

 

The result of doing this practice is feeling more grounded, self-regulated, more resourced and pain-free.

We teach this exercise on our IEP training on the Module 1: Foundations in Working with the Body.

This is a guided movement meditation facilitated by Tasha Colbert. 

This guided practice will help you connect with your body through grounding, focusing on sensations and free form movement. It will also guide you to tune into your emotions and find expression through movement/ dance.

We often use this movement meditation at the beginning of our workshops in Embodied Psychotherapy as a starting exploration of our body, what it is holding and for gentle releasing.

This guided visualisation practice will help you connect with your body and your inner world through sensations, feelings and images. 

We often use the 'Landscape and Weather' meditation at the beginning of all our workshops and trainings in Embodied Psychotherapy as a preliminary exploration of our body and how we are feeling in the present moment. 

This meditation was recorded LIVE at the BodySoul Movement session in March 2024. 

This is a guided meditation, facilitated by Katarina Gadjanski, that will help you connect with your heart & it's innate wisdom.  

 

The meditation starts with some 'parasympathetic' breathing to help us calm the nervous system, body and thoughts. Then it follows with 'Heart Coherence' guided practice: Evoking the wholesome qualities of the heart: love, care and gratitude.

 

We then enter the guided visualisation - seeing your heart as a garden... exploring what seeds (heart qualities) do you want to grow in your heart's garden? We complete this practice by journaling and reflection - writing out the seeds/qualities that you would like to grow in your garden/heart and reflecting on 'why is that important to me'
