Transforming Perfectionism: Coaching & Yoga Workshop
- Mare Street, London, E8 1HR
- (Exact address will be provided after booking)
Join Ellie and Rachel for a stimulating afternoon of yoga, meditation, and evidence-based deep coaching over a series of workshops in 2018.
Do you struggle with needing to do things perfectly or exactly “right”? Do you find yourself wishing you could do more of the things that are meaningful to you, but know that your exacting standards and critical self talk hold you back?
Perfectionistic thinking can lead you to feel depressed, guilty, ashamed, anxious and angry, especially if you consistently criticise yourself for not doing well enough after spending considerable time and effort on a task. It's also a crucial blocker to progress and play.
How debilitating and exhausting the “cement boots” we create are when judging whether we’ll be able to do something “right” For a lot of us, if there’s any chance of getting it wrong, it’s a no go. Any real chance of negative feedback or even constructive criticism, we shrink into ourselves.
Almost every decision becomes excruciating. Deliberating over everything. Second guessing constantly.
Is this the right job for me?
Did I say the right thing?
Everything will be perfect when I buy that apartment / get that job.
I should have known she’d be upset.
As a practice of self-enquiry, Yoga is a wonderful way to pay witness to - and reorient - the limiting beliefs and thought processes that stop us from living more freely. We'll work with the breath and simple postures to quiet your inner critic and help you find compassionate acceptance in wherever you are in your life right now. Mindful movement twinned with mindful breath work are all about finding stillness in the here and now - vital if we are to push past the endless striving that accompanies a perfectionistic mind!
From here we'll pour tea and ask questions to stimulate self-enquiry, teaching practices which will gently challenge and soothe perfectionistic modes of thinking and being. The workshop will close with a guided meditation to help ground your learning and nourish your mind and body.
This workshop will benefit anyone who sees perfectionistic tendencies in themselves.
