How to:

​​

  • relax and be better at feeling

  • re-connect our nature with Nature

  • embrace all the cycles of our psyche

  • slow down the speed of our thoughts

  • find clarity and calm in challenging times

  • have more living tissues of ease as we age

  • be present for what is going on inside our minds

  • become more pliable and resilient in our body-mind

  • let go of what is not you and become more of what is

  • not inhibit ourself when we are faced with difficult situations

  • be fully open, honest & compassionate with ourselves & others

  • be whole (be more of ourselves, become more our authentic-self)

  • have the courage to break through the unconscious belief and get to the truth

  • experience the ease, grace and comfort in movement even though we are in some kind of pain

  • be present & accept without judgment and with the intention of promoting healing in ourselves & others

  • improve our self-organisation of the entirety of our body so that daily discomforts and aches can be released

  • access and be nourished by something beyond our daily concerns and the usual psyche-physical aches and pains

  • be better at paying attention to our mind's sensations and our body's sensations while we interact with others in our daily life

  • reverse the neural pathways and the flow of impulses to help ourself to deal with depression, severe stress, anxiety and trauma

  • be comfortable in our own skins, be confident about who we are- not at all egotistical neither afraid nor aggressive - be properly grounded and rooted in ourselves

What are the processes that might support us in the states of stress, confusion, anxiety, trauma, depression or isolation and transform our state of mind into clarity, calmness & compassion? How can we become successful in situations in which we experience problems?

ABOUT UYÊN

Hi, I'm Uyên Vu, a passionate somatic-embodiment mindfulness yoga meditation practitioner and teacher with over three decades of experience. 

From a very young age, I was passionate to find out what it is that underlies the behaviours, beliefs, thoughts, speech, emotions, feelings of a person.

 

Before we developed the world, the world created us. How the way we have been cared for, as we grew from infancy shaped our brain, our character and more. In short, life experiences shape us and what is it that underlies these life experiences? What shaped our perceptions? Everything happens on the inside, out of our view!

 

What if we can expand our territory, have the courage to explore and to be curious about our life experiences? Which path to take to "taste" something beyond daily concerns or the usual psycho-physical aches and pains? What is the process to experience something that is authentic, inclusive, impactful, peaceful, steady, eternal, infinite, and filled with so much love?

 

What I have experienced in myself and with others who I have worked with is that when we experience things that are usually well-hidden below the conscious mind, there is a change in our perception. From that place, the ordinary become extraordinary and extraordinary becomes ordinary. There is a shift between holding tight and letting go, closing down and opening up. We perceive and interact with ourselves and others from a very differently place - a place full of compassion, connection, trust with so much joy, ease and simplicity.

 

We cannot change the past and I cannot take away the horrible things that may happened to you but I can help you to stay deeply grounded, rooted in yourself, be present and experience the extraordinary capacity you have inside of you. This will help you to move forward from the ground of openness, connection, compassion and clarity.

I specialise in somatic-embodiment practices that brings loving attention, kindness awareness, compassion and curiosity to what is going on in yourself. This helps to release your stress, anxiety, depression, build in resilience, find yourself and have a deep understanding of our own body, thoughts, unconscious belief, feelings, emotions and behaviours. 
 

I came from Vietnam to live in the UK in 2015. My journey has taken me through a blend of ancient and modern, Western and Eastern practices, exploring human anatomy, embryo & fetal developmental process, physiological psychology connection, body's experiences & sensations, neuroscience & neurocircuitry, neuro-physical disruption, breath awareness, relaxation, emotions-feelings-thoughts, energetic connection,  childhood trauma, perception & awareness practice, movement & stillness inquiry practices.

Come and join me on this wonderful journey of enquiry and exploration to discover, recover and un-cover yourself! I cannot wait to work with you on your journey of transforming your relationship with yourself!

UYÊN'S CREDENTIALS

I'm fully insured and I have trained in both Vietnam and in the UK. I have studied with a range of influential teachers around the world and continually expand my knowledge in relevant fields to help people in transforming their relationship with themselves, become more authentic, better understand their inner life and comfortable to be who they are in their own skins. I hold certifications in each of the two disciplines of yoga meditation and mindfulness and I am qualified to teach and work with people of all ages. My specialist training and knowledge includes:

  • Teaching yoga meditation to everyone from 7 to 93+ years old who are interested in learning or enhancing their yoga meditation practice. I am a recognised member of and a Senior Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance Professionals.
     

  • I have a real passion and drive to work with children and young people especially and to support them on their journey through school and life. This led me to train with and be recognised by the well-respected Mindfulness in Schools Project and have focused on working with two age groups 7-11 and 11-18. Mindfulness in Schools Project delivers a toolkit that can anchor a child for life, rather than a quick fix they might forget just as fast as they have learned it! I can work with both students and teaching staff to bring mindfulness to young people and, potentially, to develop a culture shift in a school’s approach to their student's mental health and wellbeing.

  • To build on my passion for working with young adults as they grow I am a qualified Teen Yoga Mental Health teacher.

  • I am fully insured and I have an enhanced DBS check.  I am safeguarding trained as well as mental health first-aid trained.​​

  • In Vietnam, I practiced Ananda Marga Yoga – connecting heart-mind-body – with Mrs. Khanh Kakyani & Mrs. Cuu Karuna and I still receive support from these two amazing teachers. I have practiced mindfulness meditation - Mindful living - through the teachings of Thay Thich Nhat Hanh since I was very young and carried on my deep-dive into the human mind with teaching from wonderful teachers like Jiddu Krishnamurti and Emile Condrad. 

 

  • I also add to my learning through the teachings of people like Susan Harper for Perception& Perceiving practices; Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen - cellular consciousness & embryo development process (Body-Mind Centering); Amy Matthews - embodied anatomy & embryology; Michael Meade (Living Myth); Gil Hedley (dissector); Susan Bauer (embodied teen), David Zemach-Bersin (Feldenkrais Method); Michael Molin Skelton (Soul Motion dance); Gabrielle Roth (5 Rhythms emotional dance); Hoa thuong Thich Giac Khang (a Vietnamese monk); Reggie Ray (meditation teacher), Dr. Gabor Maté (addiction, trauma & childhood emotional development), Peter Levine (trauma and body awareness),  and from my many clients to open up a natural way of addressing health, vitality and possibility. 

I am happy to hear from you about teaching somatic-embodiment mindfulness yoga meditation in schools, workplaces & others to support and improve physical-mental-emotional-social health for children and adults (7 to 97+ years old) who may face physical challenges or feel stuck in thoughts, feelings, emotions, find it difficult to relax or stay focussed, struggle with chronic tension-stress, school attendance & behaviours, stress, anxiety, depression, self-suppression, trauma or those who seek for an ancient practice to a have a deep understanding of their own cognition, emotion, physicality and spirituality.

If you are new to me, please do have a quick look at some of the reviews from schools, parents and others on Google, Facebook and Yoga Alliance Professional (UK)
