Padma Patricia Borrego

After a serious injury when I was 17, I was told I would never use my left arm again. After 6 months the shattered bones were healing slowly and crooked and the nerve was not responding.  Therapy helped very little and I gave up on my body.  Years later I took a yoga class in NYC.  At 23 I felt pretty separate from my body and broken, but I went because it helped me sleep.  I met a teacher who blew my mind. She had a faith in the body's ability to heal that opened my body and mind up to new paradigm of healing 

Together we worked to change the shape of my arm, and shifted my abilities, strength and pain levels.  I became strong and confidence in movement. and connected to my emotions.  We worked to strengthen me from the inside out.  I have continued to study, learn and grow in my body, and being, refining what I learn as I get better at listening internally . I look forward to sharing it with  you.

My tools include: Yoga, Structural Integration, Energy Healing, Nerve Manipulation, Scar Manipulation, Meditation, Empathy and Love. 

I believe that body wants to heal, the heart wants to heal and its all possible. I believe touch is healing,, movement is healing:, and meditation is an amazing life long tool,.

Sleeping in the Forest

 

I thought the earth remembered me,

she took me back so tenderly,

arranging her dark skirts, her pockets

full of lichens and seeds.

I slept as never before, a stone on the river bed,

nothing between me and the white fire of the stars

but my thoughts, and they floated light as moths

among the branches of the perfect trees.

All night I heard the small kingdoms

breathing around me, the insects,

and the birds who do their work in the darkness.

All night I rose and fell, as if in water,

grappling with a luminous doom. By morning

I had vanished at least a dozen times

into something better.

 

from Sleeping In The Forest by Mary Oliver
