EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH EMMA VANIER

HEAL THE WOMB HEAL THE WORLD

HEALING STARTS WITHIN WHERE LIFE ITSELF BEGINS The womb is the most dynamic and sensitive ecosystem on the planet and requires consistency, nurturing and love to sustain life and humanity. If we heal the womb, can we heal the world? Emma Vanier, Founder of Awake Your Inner Body, believes it's a good place to start, and start she has. Where there is a will (and a wand) there’s a way…

Allié: Before we talk about where you are and where you’re going, Emma, let’s talk about where you were when the idea of Awake Your Inner Body was formed. What path led you to this one?

Emma: When I moved in my mid-twenties from Montreal to New York City, I was living an exuberant/unhealthy lifestyle. I felt I needed some changes. So, I went on a life changing road trip from San Francisco to San Diego that absolutely made me reconnect and fall in love with nature. I felt a shift in me after this experience and something told me it was about time to make some changes: So, I decided to move from the East Coast to the West Coast, where I settled in California not long after. Once I found my home, I really started to immerse myself into nature and look for ways to connect deeper with my inner energy, so I started reading a lot.

I remember the first book I read was Guru Jagat's book, INVINCIBLE LIVING: THE POWER OF YOGA, which introduced me to Kundalini Yoga and led me to enroll in yoga teacher training at the RAMA institute. I would like to take a moment in order to thank Guru Jagat for her support, honor her for all her wisdom, all the hard work she did for the conscious community and all the great things she was doing to empower women. I wish her a very peaceful journey into the next realm. I currently practice with Krishna Kaur, who is the god mother to my son.

I truly believe that everything is orchestrated in divine order: During the training, I received devastating news that deeply shocked me. This period was extremely challenging emotionally. However, the Divine placed me exactly where I needed to be at this precise moment of my life. It kept me grounded and balanced during these difficult times. With my Kundalini yoga practice, I started adding other forms of self-care rituals like drinking smoothies with super ingredients, exercising in nature, not consuming any toxic substances like alcohol, sound bowl vibration ritual, etc…

“I believe that the ways to heal yourself are found within.”

I began to realize how vital the energy we hold inside our body influences who we are and how we feel. We hold so much power within! It is so important to awaken our energy and our intuition. I believe that the ways to heal yourself are found within. But the road to healing requires an awakening of your energy. You can achieve this awakening by being consistent, committed and by practicing. Only by committing to a purpose can we see real changes over time. Practicing Kundalini yoga awakened me to find my true purpose and made me want to embody my higher self. I always wondered what my purpose in life was: How could I make a difference and help future generations, specifically women? I wondered if we can heal our Mother Earth considering that the mental health of the planet is intrinsically connected to ours. 71 AWARENOW / THE SOURCE EDITION
