"Most likely the skills gained from MindBody Centering are quite particular to each individual.  It is true that most have been able to create liberation for themselves in a variety of ways, so as to define and come to embrace their authentic paths of power.  Beautiful youth have put down the cutting blade, life-threatening restriction, drug habits and self abuse, in order to be energized contributors and guides for those like themselves. Parents have chosen to take a breath instead of short-circuiting or silencing  the potential of their offspring with shame and violence. Wizened folks have stood up from their rockers and traveled the globe to offer the grace of fully-lived experiences.  Lonely individuals, threatened by the disposable culture of corporate vocations, have arrived home to a Self of unlimited imagination and creativity in order to thrive within the context of expert and deeply reverent livelihoods.  With awareness and dedication to simple, self care, the insanity quieted, the ‘Self’  showed up to declare its needs, and, what a wise teacher of life offered, ‘brilliant sanity’ blossomed."  Quoted from Nina Be's upcoming book, CHAKRA ENCHANTMENT

In speaking about MindBody Centering Therapy, Nina Be defines her work as Yoga Alchemy...focusing on the strengths that are already innately available to each unique individual.   The MBCYT system builds upon non-judgement to frame ones life on the path of positive, proactive possibility.  Having navigated through her experience of learning and evolving from the violence of her family of origin, Nina appreciates the profound and intricate nature of twisted love and trauma.  The events of evacuating her family from hurricane Katrina, and incurring TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) from a critical auto accident, drew Nina to more deeply appreciate the whole body as a thinking, feeling organism, whose conditions of imbalance can be shifted through the nourishment of  gentle and consistent care.  This approach has supported thousands of people who have been supported to trust their innate intuitive drives towards wellness. Nina finds that many in pain have been treated by medicines to treat illness, yet, they have not been empowered to trust  their ability to create and maintain their best health.
She has been honored to guide her clients out of suffering from Depression, Anxiety, Abuse, Scoliosis, Panic Disorders, Chronic Fatigue, TBI, Chronic Pain, eating & relationship disorders, into lives of Grace.
