Mona Nygren

Hello. My name is Mona and my life’s journey is a complex way into beeing.
Now in 2019, it’s 31 years of deeper searching. I now have the resources within myself that I need to have to live in peace in ease. Body Wisdom. A clear direction and a strong trust in my own life.

 

The journey begins

Being born as premature twin in the early 1970s set some challenges that were hard to cope with. Prematurity resulted to poor digestion and hypersensitivity that lead to repetitive infections also poor social engagement.
After finishing Culinary school at 18, I got a scholarship. Unfortunately I also got an immune disease that stopped my career as a chef. That wasn’t enough. I experienced a shock trauma and went through multiple surgeries and had to learn to walk and interact again. Pain was my fuel and a signal that my body needed help because there’s something wrong. I could not find anyone that understood trauma. So I learned how to switch off the sensations, feelings and emotions instead of healing. My experience taught me to live life the best I can and somehow my interest grew for learning self-help. My start was training my body, eating healthy and work, I liked that better than painkillers and sleeping meds.

 

A new chapter

At 30 when I had been working successfully for many years still suffering from physical injuries and past experiences. I ended up depleted from lifeenergy, made some drastic life changes and started searching for help. My history was too complicated, by that time the knowledge of trauma was poor, so my solution was to move away from the things I could not cope with in life. Settled at the countryside I got myself a horse. Connecting to my feeling of safety and rhythm, I turned my life towards nature and long lost interest discovered during childhood. My horse showed me what I needed: Take better care of myself. So I started yoga, which lead to discovering Psoas, Continuum Movement, Blomberg Rhythmic Movement and Somatic Experiencing along with SOMA Embodiment.

 

Deeper interest for the almighty Psoas
I had been waiting for so many years, and just knew what potential my search for body sensation provided for my health, so I learned more about the importance of combining conscious rest, rhythm and movement and how to implement them. I started to feel more secure, calm and confident by incorporating exploring movements and vibrational sounds. It woke me and taught me gratitude on a new level. This opened a whole new dimension. It started with short moments where I left my traumatic experiences and got a taste of the healing power. The journey hasn’t been easy, but it’s the only way and now it’s rewarding me with life without suffering.

 

Health and healing through trauma knowledge
Today I guide others by teaching what trauma is about, and ways out of what it holds inside.

In my opinion it’s our right to learn how to take better care of ourselves so we can live as independent and valuable individuals.

Developmental trauma, stress and emotional fatigue, shock trauma and hypersensitivity are something everyone needs to understand in order to be able to move towards a sustainable future.

Today I’m hosting Safe & Social on Zoom, along with weekly groups at yogastudio, workshops, give sessions and treatments in body-based traumahealing. Life with a greater understanding of your nervous-system, stress reactions and unconscious patterns that affects everyday health and well-being.
