First of all, what IS a Yoga Nerd?
According to the Urban Dictionary, a Nerd is “an individual who: 1. Enjoys learning 2. Does not adhere to social norms.”
That about sums it up. A nerd is someone who is passionate about something so much that they are constantly learning about it and doesn’t care what other people think. So here’s the thing, I’m not just passionate about superheroes and light sabers, I’m passionate about yoga and healing.
Heather the Yoga Nerd is about being a nerd in your healing. We’re talking spiritual healing, as well as physical, mental and emotional healing. It is about wearing down the false outer layers until you find the real you. There is nothing better in the world than seeing someone grow and change right before your eyes. It’s even better than seeing Thor in all his muscular glory. It is about your healing and learning to love yourself for every bit of yourself.
Now, I’m not stuffy or overly serious about this self-growth and spiritual healing. Being a nerd means enjoying learning. You have to have fun along the way, right? That’s why I’m writing this blog. Healing can be fun. Yes, there are rough times when you have to look at the dark side of yourself. But, we don’t succumb to the dark side. We learn compassion for it. If we push it away, ignore it, or hate it we will succumb to the dark side of the force. Fear, Hatred, being completely unaware of the negative behavior patterns we have created is the life of the dark side. But I digress…
What makes healing fun is having group of like-minded people for support. You need like-minded people who can help you laugh and let go when you need. A group of people who will be as excited as you to try that new cauliflower taco recipe. Like-minded people who understand when you explain a bizarre healing experience or revelation you had that opened up a whole new door into your true self. A group of people who are going through the same experiences as you. Because, the other part of being a nerd is not adhering to social norms.
Now, we aren’t going to be so crazy that our family will check us into a mental health institution. But, as we change and grow, our behaviors change. Sometimes it throws people off and creates awkward situations. And anytime you make people uncomfortable you are walking outside social norms. But having a club gives us courage! And on the other side of that awkwardness is a lightness and peace that is the best feeling ever. I know because I’ve been there.
When I work with my wonderful clients, I am always sharing experiences from my journey. Everyone starts at the beginning. And the beginning isn’t always pretty! Along with sharing my stories, I am giving them tools to help them on their healing journey. I teach them about the Enneagram and I provide energy healing. I teach them yoga and meditation. But not everyone lives in my city. Not everyone has access to one-on-one sessions with me. SO! My hope is to take what I do in a session with a client and put it into this blog to help YOU on YOUR healing journey.
That is why I’m writing this blog – to share what I have learned on my journey. I want to share everything I’ve learned to help others heal. I want to help people discover how wonderful they are are fall in love with who they are. I want to help people find their inner healing nerd.
