What others say about our work together.
“The most notable difference is in my ability
to manage stress and difficult situations so much more effectively.”
Praise for Sonya Nelson
Divine intervention brought Sonya into my life, at a time when I was emotionally, physically, and spiritually a “disaster.” With deep empathy and guidance, she has helped me discover the value of living an authentic life, one that is true to me. I have hope now, and I find pleasure in life every day.
I was feeling overwhelmed, anxious, and depleted. Deciding to work with Sonya was the best decision I’ve made! In a year I’ve gone from being completely lost to finally feeling like my true self. I have so many “aha” moments when we talk. I always leave in a state of calm that lasts the whole day.
Sonya has helped me become courageous, and she has provided a space for me that I was not able to make for myself. I have found more authenticity, a calmer mind, and a steadier way to make choices. Sonya has helped me to connect to what I value most – the God spark in my own heart!
I have made significant life-changing progress in my emotional growth since seeing Sonya for energy healing on a regular basis for the last four years. With Sonya’s compassionate guidance, I am learning to permanently integrate her insightful healing techniques and strategies into my daily life. It has had a profound effect on my overall self-development and well-being. The most notable difference is in my ability to manage stress and difficult situations so much more effectively.
Rising Strong™ • The Daring Way™ • Wholehearted Living Praise
Too often, personal development programs are called “life changing,” when they are rarely more than inspiring for a little while. But in my case, The Daring Way™ truly was life changing! I had just ended what I thought would be a “forever” relationship. I needed a shakeup to regain my self-confidence, and The Daring Way™ weekend en-couraged me to “step into the arena.” It was the catalyst for a major “renunciation” and what would prove to be the best year of my life.
Participants experience a welcoming, heart-opening, confidential environment in which to explore new ideas, share long-held concerns, and discover that maybe we’re not the only ones to feel guilt and shame about particular issues.
Sonya is a master facilitator. She creates a feeling of safety for all involved. She is both lighthearted and serious and demonstrates what being wholehearted looks like.
As shame triggers are identified, the old ways of coping are transformed into strength, courage, and authenticity.
The process was grueling – make no mistake. But the results after each session were amazing. I left each day drained and exhausted. And the next day I noticed quantum changes!
I know myself better. I recognize when my shame patterns show up and I can be gentle with myself.
I'm finding my voice to express my needs constructively. I’m also improving my listening and empathy skills.
I’ve gained more peace and joy in my life. Those anxious feelings I’ve had about interactions with others have been calmed. I have more confidence in myself. Best of all: I can have peace of mind without feeling like I have to solve everyone else’s problems!
A once-a-week yoga practice has given me the gift of feeling more grounded and in touch with my physical self. Forrest Yoga and Sonya Nelson have created for me the perfect setting to grow this connection to my self on many levels. It’s been in making space “on the mat” for all the different aspects of who I am that has permitted me to accept myself and others more fully in all areas of my life. As a result, this has organically reduced my stress, my feelings of judgment, and my unwanted resistance to the flow of life.
I have tried many different styles of yoga. Forrest Yoga seems to work best for me, particularly in relieving the heavy tension build-up in my shoulders and upper back, which, in turn, caused severe headaches. Having stronger abs has helped decrease my lower back problems and created better balance for the dancing and riding I enjoy. I love the general sense of well-being I feel after the classes and tend to sleep like a baby the night after! Sonya creates a great atmosphere in her classes with her openness and giving spirit. I would recommend trying Forrest Yoga with Sonya.
