Navanita creates a great space of trust and always follows the invitation of the moment, which supports me to find my own rhythmus. I'am always impressed how the existence is dance through her and how she accepts what the moment is offering. I`am also impressed by the awakeness she has and the nearness she allows.
Dear Navanita, my life has changed since I met you five and a half years ago.
I`m lucky and grateful with you and the group I have found a field of
safety, security, and trust from where I can grow and heal.
With your authenticity, aliveness and creativity you bring me in touch with
the forgotten language of my body, awareness, watching
myself, sensing the body from within, grounding, space, orientation,
connection, softiness, delight, warmth, fun, compassion, love,
speaking from the heart, playfulness, clarity, wellbeing, being seen - a
large variety of resources.
I have nothing to do - it comes to me!
These experiences have changed my health, daily life and relationships.
Your support, your marvellous sense of humor and your inner love for me is a
big part of healing force.
And every time I need something (waiting for the next group) I´m listening
to your wonderful voice on one of your CDs.
Thank you very much for all of this.
thank you so much for these three precious embryo days and for the individual session about the bones!
After the third time having discovered the embryo-topic, I begin to understand the embryo-work in somatic movements!
It went from the cognitive level to the cellular understanding this time.
Your work is so precious Navanita!
There is the earth, the sky, my body and music. Music makes me that I want to move like an invitation for dancing. Out of this dance I allow myself to move. In this moment it happens that I get in contact with myself. I start to feel myself from head to feet, from my skin to the bones.
So it happens that something from the outside becomes something internal and something from the inside becomes something external. Now life force itself invites me to dance.
Dear Navanita, I am very happy with the CD( Body of Well-Being ), it helps me...I spread your message out to everybody I meet! The 9 days together with you and the others where amazing Navanita...the playfull way of teaching, the humor, the way you held the container, the information, the insights I had...my new feeling with my body, and a lot more....I am so graithfull....Love

Stretching helps me connect with my body and to feel the space inside being created by doing so and taking time to rest in a position. Remarking on small changes, like more space inside or warmth or flow and becoming more one with my body, my home. To connect with the membrane gives me the feeling of security and at the same time I feel the permeability and feel touched by things of the inside and from outside. I feel soft and fragile and it is easy to rest and relax inside. I like to lean into things and friends, melting. I feel connected to the inside and to the outside at the same time and I feel very much at home in my body. I can take care of myself, feel really at home. I am the body and all the wisdom lies within. And I start listening.....

It's special that she guide us and is part of the group as well. I have the feeling, she listens with her whole body and she helps me to discover things, which whisper inside me very silently. I feel her big love and care.
Usually I'am used to give away responsibility; she supports in a playful kind, to realize it and so that I take the responsibility for me back. To practise this, I need the support of the tribe, which we create together. The tribe is an important source.

You are asking for my experiences with „Love is the Dance of Life“ and I can tell you only good things about it. For me the weekends with you always were a very special and touching group-experience, on my way searching for sense and truth in my life.
The beautiful and rythm-strong music and your intuitive, sensitive guidance create a joyful, playful and powerful atmosphere after a short time in your groups. This atmosphere, during all the weekends I participated, made it possible to let my body dance out of my very soul and to give myself totally to here and now as the only important event. In movement and in silence, in dance and in meditation, in touching and in being touched, I always found possibilities to let go and to trust, that what is, and what is happening in the moment, belongs to my existence and to the existence of the people, who are dancing with me. This wants to be lived and it`s allowed to be lived.
When I first met Navanita in 2009, I was deeply impressed by her life story, her vitality, kindness and love-lifeliness and said to her: "you live what you are and are what you live". And I said to myself: this would be a good sentence for me and I wanted to know more about how she came along to go for this! So I just went to her morning classes: "Remember the forgotten language of your body" - to go for a lot of new (to me), fascinating body experiences: e. g. feeling myself from the inner (not from the outer, as it used to be for so long) though e.g. my different layers of skin (how can this work - my mind asked?), talking to and with my cells, re-membering through exercices and immagination the first cell we all were and that it grew and perceived itself through movement... in the first place, my mind wanted to understand all this - gratefully, it did not work!
Moreover a complete shift happens: first move and let your body do the things it wants to do and then understand (if, at all)... Re-embering the language my body: this gives me a sense of being at home in my body, feeling and being myself from the inner: as I am writing these sentences, my breath gets more intense and more deeply in my belly and some belly liquids make nice sounds and go 'blub blub': a good sign from my body which says: "oh yes, I absolutely agree to this great work and support this is". An example of how I can feel what is going on in my system - quite new to me! Another way to help me to reconnect directly is to give awareness to my inner spine: as we brought attention while reconnecting during the workshops to this part of the spine, my whole system responds: when experimenting with dancing, moves and bringing awareness to it, my spine goes in a more upright position which gives my whole upper body more space, choice and also direction!
My system gives me a sort of 'inner sense' and well-being: wow - this is what I was always longing for: a sense within myself, a sense of feeling alive from my very inner - isn't this a great expericence?! I don't have 'to go outside' to sense myself: it is/was there already and I needed to 'get' the language again. These are, of course, the first steps into this language - I am so happy and grateful to have met Navanita and her prescious work; looking forward to much more to come, discover and reconnect. What a great journey towards my-self I am on!

"Navanita.Words cannot express my gratitude for this experience?? I thought I knew the body. I work all day with patients helping them with their bodies Now what I realiized that I have learnt about the body through energy and then I learnt about the body through emotions. What i have learnt here with you is about the body through the body.I will be back !"

…of words and body-language helped me to really 'get', on a body level, what she was trying to communicate to us. It's as if she was talking to my core, perhaps my cells, deep within. Thank you!

Got to share this morning's dynamic with you.. ;) It was all in the cells.. ;)
I set the intention for the cleaning out and totality.. all the cells were breathing in the first stage and it felt so great.. so present.. like the space around me and inside me expanded.. then we went on to clean out and express stuff that came up... beautiful.. there was a deep laughter in the back of the belly.. and then suddenly behind it tears which were equally beautiful...
for jumping, all the cells were there... all with beautiful little arms and legs jumping up and down .. It was such fun and support to have that picture with me... the freeze was sort of ok although the mind always has more space
My favorite part came in the end.. in the dancing... suddenly a picture of the DNA of the nucleus appeared and it was dancing... spiraling inside all the cells.. millions of DNAs dancing... and then another form appeared.. what I saw as being the Golgi Body.. also one of the organelles in the cell... beautiful.. transparent... 3 dimensional... and one black vesicle being secreted from it... At lunch time I went on the internet to look up the function of this Golgi Body and I was amazed.. it is responsible for processing the proteins and the lipids in the cell and prepare them in vesicles to be transported through the cell membrane... WOW!!! Really cleaning out something.. and that the picture was so clear...

Hello everyone! I would like to share with you the wonderful experience that I lived with Navanita in Miasto, from 2nd to 5th June this year.
As a consequence of cancer last year, which resulted in menopause, I lost control and of my body.
It was like to be no more inside, it had become a stranger.
I attended the Natural Dance seminar and this has been a real journey into my body, an awakening of the senses and the natural movement which we had as children and then normally we forget because of our conditionings.
For me it was like going back to the Stone Age in Africa, where there are still some tribes who dance all day and still live rooted in their essence and are in a perpetual exchange with the strength and energy of nature, of Mother Earth!
I found out that energy brings energy,and when we let our body talk through the dance, everything flows naturally with clarity and the mind stops with her blah blah blah, at least for a while :-)
In the morning I wake up and dance, dance at work, dance in the evening and my bones continue to repeat thanks thanks thanks!
And thanks to Navanita for this beautiful gift she gave to us and that I choose for myself!

A conversation with my body.
Knock, knock, knock...
I am really sorry that you had to get a duodenal ulcer to let me know that I need more rest
Knock, knock, knock...
Will you forgive me that I had you exercise for hours thinking for some weird reason it was for the best
Knock, knock, knock...
I do admit I didn't see intrinsic beauty and the universe inside my every cell
Knock, knock, knock..
I am here now, and I truly want to hear what you have to tell.

How the embodiment practice influences my daily life ....especially my work as a midwife.
At first I want to give thanks to Navanita, who brings this incredible gift to manifest here in our time, our body, our minds, shes a great midwife for embodying spirit.
The first steps i take is to find the resources in my body, to stabilize and recreate, to feel safe and fill up again. This makes me able to work again as a midwife, which, after burning out, i had thought i could never do again. In my work with the pregnant women and man and with the families i can offer them these resources of their own and its no longer me, who gives them what they need. they are more and more able to realise their own resources. When i am connected with my body, there is space for them to connect with their own body, which is an essential preparation for birth and parenthood. The classes i give are becoming more complete, because i am able to include the baby, by talking to it, asking it and telling the parents that it is with us, this is very satisfying and joyfull for all of us.
Taking care of the clients is more than talking, when i stay connectet to my body, staying present, it seems, that a space appears where i can see the other, its like an allowing ,the other can also be there , its a place where nothing planned happens and is safe to happen without knowing beforehand. When i stay connected i realize sooner when i need a break and by taking one fill up again and am stronger and clearer. I realised that it is not the question of thinking about how i bring the embodiment practice in my daily life and in my work. The daily practice of embodiment gives me a direction or dimension to act out of it. This feels really relaxing, because i dont have to do it, when i am open and listenig "it does".
Wie das Embodyment meinen Alltag beeinflusst, besonders meine Arbeit als Hebamme.
Als erstes gilt mein Dank Navanita, die den Weg ebnet, so dass sich dieses wunderbare Geschenk des Embodyments hier in unserer Zeit, in unseren Körpern und unserem Geist manifestieren kann. Sie ist eine großartige "Embodymenthebamme". Meine ersten Erfahrungen mit Embodyment waren, dass ich meine Kraftquellen, die Ressourcen meines Körpers, die mich stabilisieren, wieder aufbauen, mich Sicherheit fühlen lassen und mich wieder auffüllen, entdeckt habe. Das hat mich überhaupt erst, nach einem heftigen Burnout, befähigt, wieder als Hebamme zu arbeiten.
In meiner Arbeit mit den Schwangeren, den werdenden Vätern und den Familien, ist es mir nun möglich, dass ich Ihnen diese, ihre eigenen Ressourcen zugänglich machen kann und nicht mehr ich gebe ihnen was sie brauchen, sondern sie sind mehr und mehr in der Lage ihre eigenen Kraftquellen zu finden und zu nutzen. Wenn ich mit meinem Körper verbunden bin, ist da auch Raum für meine Klienten mit ihrem Körper verbunden zu sein. diese Verbindung ist eine grundlegende Vorbereitung auf die Geburt und die Elternschaft.
Der Unterricht, den ich gebe, ist ist vollständiger geworden, weil ich durch Aufmerksamkeit und Präsenz in der Lage bin das Baby zu involvieren, das ist sehr befriedigend und freudvoll für alle. Die Arbeit mit den Klienten ist mehr als Gespräche führen, wenn ich präsent bin, mit meinem Körper verbunden bleibe, scheint ein Raum zu entstehen, wo ich mein Gegenüber wirklich sehen,wahrnehmen kann. Es ist wie eine Erlaubnis, dass der andere ebenfalls da sein darf. Dies ist ein Ort an dem nichts geplant geschieht, der sicher ist und an dem ungeplantes geschehen darf.
Wenn ich mit mir verbunden bleibe ,merke ich schneller wann ich eine Pause brauche und kann eine Pause nehmen um mich wieder aufzufüllen.
Ich habe erkannt, dass es nicht darum geht darüber nachzudenken, wie ich die Praxis des Embodyment in meinen Alltag und meine Arbeit integrieren kann, sondern dass es die tägliche Praxis des Embodyments ist die mir eine Ausrichtung oder einen Raum gibt, aus dem heraus alles wie von" selbst" geschieht. Das fühlt sich sehr entspannt an, den ich muss nichts tun. Wenn ich offen bin und nach innen höre geschieht "es" von selbst.
