Rhonda Vroman Alexander
Yoga Therapist, Sound Healing, Yoga Nidra & Spiritual Director
Why I love this work :
We are all energy; this energy often gets blocked in our bodies due to circular pattern thinking, unprocessed emotions or physical holding. It is my privilege to help people release these blockages and it is this work that I love. Be it in a class, a private yoga therapy session, through sound vibrations or meditative yoga Nidra, being fully present to another person as releases and new ways of being appear is what excites and energizes me. I marvel at the gift of being able to serve as a conduit for movement and opening for others and consider this work an honor that I GET to offer. ‘Be still and know…’ continues to beckon me back to the seat of listening and being present to the Presence and I love sharing this with others.
What you can expect:
You can expect direct and thoughtful presence, to be heard, and to be supported. Your experience may incorporate a unique combination of approaches that are customized based on your needs. These approaches access my experiences, personal spiritual work, and extensive training in both business and energy modalities. My clients report feeling supported and listened to; sometimes with significant insights and releases being received as blocked energy is released and can flow freely. Clients often report feeling lighter, the body feeling more open and less tense, the mind less worried and stressed, and life flows easier. Clients tell me they feel safe and are able to experience releases and “ah-ha’s” they have not previously found in mind focused modalities. My intent is to meet you where you are, to ‘hold space’ and support you as you explore and find those answers that are within, just waiting to be accessed.
Rhonda’s work is with people who are interested in releasing patterns of thinking, ways of being and emotional responses that are no longer supportive, in essence dying to those parts of self or ego that stand in the way of fullness. After 25+ years in marketing and marketing research leading teams of people, and owning her own consultancy for 9 years, she continued to see habitual patterns holding people back and not allowing for overall success. She left Corporate in 2016, having several years earlier began the journey of digging into her own self defeating patterns plus decades of study and work with spiritual directors and yogic principles. She now uses these observations and her teachings to help others.
Rhonda is a certified Body Psychology/Yoga Therapist in the Amrit energy method. She is extensively trained and experienced in guiding the journey of blocked energy release and incorporates body/mind/heart/soul connecting approaches. Her training includes Engineering and MBA degrees, RYT 500 and working with spiritual directors for the past 25 years. She also offers Yoga Nidra*, Healing Sound & Spiritual Direction. She has personally experienced profound shifts through embracing this journey, and now has the honor of being a conduit for these changes in others.
*Yoga Nidra can be described as profound state of ‘waking sleep’ where you are guided into an effortless mediation, and often uses intention to create significant shifts.
‘Be still and know that I…am God’ continues to beckon me back to the seat of listening and being present to the Presence. It is an honor to be part of the spiritual practice that helps others uncover their God essence, their True Self. As you are held in a space of deep listening through spiritual direction, you can relax into the brilliant light that you already are while discerning what is there, waiting to be seen, to be unearthed and embraced.
Spiritual Direction is part of the practice offered; my approach is to meet you where you are, recognizing we show up different each time. You may be ‘ready to go’ or perhaps guided breath with relaxation is helpful to come into a bit of stillness and Presence. I offer a tranquil presence during Spiritual Direction, Integrative Wellness Coaching, and Yoga Nidra (a sleep & conscious based guided meditation that is deeply connecting and restorative), all refined through yogic training. This is all supported by the intention of cultivatingpeace, moment by moment.
My Spiritual Direction journey began over 20 years ago during a time of increasing awareness of the importance of having a guide to help see God/Source/Higher Power within my life path. I am an ongoing student of spiritual practices, including those of the yogic tradition, that encourage peace, connection and transformation, and offer these practices in various modalities.
My formal training includes Deep Listening through Pathways, Integrative Coaching through Integrative Wellness, Amrit Yoga Nidra through Kamani Desia, Yoga Training through Inner Vision, various workshops and an MBA and BS (Agricultural Engineering) from Arizona State University.
I welcome the opportunity to explore with you if these offerings are fit with your needs.
Yoga Nidra is an ancient, sleep & consciousness based guided meditation practice. It has the power to take you to the innermost, deepest levels of relaxation and awareness. In this place, you can experience deep rest and restoration, moving towards the full essence of you.
Many who regularly practice meditation describe Yoga Nidra as a way to go deeper faster. Yoga Nidra can take you to the experience of that pristine state where you can rest in an effortless state of being.
Yoga nidra meditation can also help treat a range of symptoms, from insomnia to anxiety, physical pain and depression.
During a 55 minute session, you will start with gentle movement and breath work, and then move to comfortable position, laying down or seated. Props are provided to allow you to feel fully supported and so your body can rest comfortably. The Yoga Nidra then begins, followed by a short debrief of your experience.
