Cécile's Wise Ways
I work with professionals committed to their wellbeing who are still experiencing chronic tension or pain despite having tried many other modalities without lasting results.
My name is Cécile Raynor. For about 30 years I have been teaching the Alexander Technique which is the best-kept secret of famous performers and Olympic artists. They swear by it because it allows them to perform at their highest potential with optimal safety. Now, it is well known by people of all professions who find it the missing link in their optimum health.
Over the years, I have developed my own expression of the Alexander Technique the Body Intelligence Activation Process. In a nutshell, I teach people how to get out of their own way so as to empower and activate their whole-body intelligence which fixes their challenges automatically.
I also became a Thai Yoga therapist and a Reiki practitioner to offer a full spectrum of value to everyone.
My practice consists of private and group sessions, both in-person and online format. Onother specialty is teaching yogis and yoga teachers how to practice in an integrated way so they avoid common strain and injuries. Then, I was led to publish The Wise Way to Yoga in 2018.
So, out of my life experience personally and professionally, I have been inspiring and guiding people away from unnecessary tension and pain so they can dance the joy of wholeness.
All I love to do, from being in nature, meditating, dancing, drawing, painting, listening to music, gardening, hiking kayaking, traveling, and more, has informed my way of being and working. which is why I love my work and love the people I work with.
While studying for my doctorate, I had a profound insight into my own level of body awareness. I realized I was very much in my head and quite disembodied even though I was exercising 3 hours a day. I wanted my mind and body to work together as they are designed to do for optimal health. So, I chose to leave academia to become an Alexander Technique teacher.
Little did I know I would someday become an expert on integrated movement and even teach yoga teachers to be more embodied! In fact, I am so passionate about fluid movements that I also became an artist capturing fluid movement in dancers and musicians.
Moreover, since I was a young adult, because of body image limitations, I was very motivated to study and practice whole-food nutrition. As a result, integrated movements combined with decades of integrated nutrition and meditation have had a transformative impact on my life as a whole and has kept me strong, healthy, and centered.
I believe I was meant to be a wellness professional and have already helped countless others feel better in their body and mind.
Most clients have at least one WOW experience or two in their first session. This is due to a level of ease and pain-free movement they never experienced before.
At the end of the session, they often feel their posture has clearly improved. Walking around, they enjoy feeling taller and more relaxed without effort.
Do you want to manage stress more efficiently?
Do you have chronic muscle or joint pain? And have you ever found that when you stop exercising or receiving treatments the pain comes back?
Would you like to learn how to heal and prevent such ongoing conditions in a lasting way?
The way I work addresses the underlying causes that are feeding your symptoms. I get to the cause instead of focusing only on your symptoms.
As a result, you can feel your tension or pain decrease and often disappear, while your posture improves organically.
