“There is no such thing as perfect timing...don't hesitate or wait to start living your best life if you feel so, because you may end up spending more time planning than actually living this experience.”
After more than 15 years of successful career in business, Helene left her job of a Director of Risk at a listed International company to become a certified Integrative Somatic practitioner, a specialist that uses various methods & techniques to develop body intelligence, mind-body connection. Her favorite method is intuitive dance and movement. Dance was her passion from an early age and in her free time she traveled around the world practicing different dance styles.
Before getting her certification, she had been applying somatic methods for years, but did not feel comfortable to share that knowledge widely given her career path, for years these topics were a taboo in the business world. But now her mission is to guide people on their journey of developing mind-body connection and living a happy and fulfilled life on individual, enterprise and society level.
How to get in touch:
In this week's episode of Don't Step on the Bluebells, host Amanda Parker has an insightful discussion with integrative somatic practitioner Helene Stetsenko about using intuitive movement and dance for healing. They explore the idea of healing as a journey to return to your optimal state of wellbeing and equilibrium by reconnecting with your body's inner wisdom.
Helene shares how engaging in expressive, intuitive movement helps release suppressed emotions, clear energy blockages, and realign you with your natural state of wholeness. She explains how observing your own posture and movement patterns reveals emotional and energetic blockages you may be unknowingly holding onto. Making small, ongoing adjustments to how you hold and move your body, and paying attention to subtle signals from your body's intuition is key - even if it contradicts outside expectations or ingrained patterns.
Helene guides a beautiful meditation for cleansing and smoothing your personal energetic sphere through visualization, breathwork, and mindful movement. She emphasizes not waiting for the "perfect moment" but rather aligning with your soul's purpose starting now, by having the courage to live your best life. Overall, the discussion provides valuable insights on how our bodies have an innate capacity for holistic healing and wisdom that we can access by getting in touch with our natural, instinctive movement.
