“Imogen, I just wanted to tell you that your course in self-care is so good. Not pushing, just bringing some good thoughts into the day, allowing to feel all the good that we are having. Thank you so much!!!!! So often when I think about self-care, I feel that so much is missing and I do not have the time to do all this. But you show a very gentle and easy way.”

WHY Self-Care?

“Self-care is not selfish. You cannot serve from an empty vessel.”
—Eleanor Brownn

Can you answer yes to any of the following questions?

        • Do you often feel stressed, overwhelmed or burnt out?
        • Do you put everyone else’s needs before your own?
        • Would you like more ease and joy in your life?
        • Do you want to have the energy and internal resources to serve others to the best of your ability?
        • Do you want to be more productive, effective and creative?
        • Do you find it hard to prioritize yourself?
        • Would you like to calm your inner critic and reduce your “mental clutter”?
        • Do you think you don’t have time!?

Most of us can answer yes to many, if not all, of the above!

Self-care is a big part of the answer to addressing these problems.

When you’re stressed, just rushing from one this to the next, never taking a break, working non-stop, switching tracks, multi-tasking, running errands, fruitlessly trying to get the never-ending to-do list done, you do not bring your best self to your work, to your family and friends, or to your lives.

You end up getting run down or sick. You make mistakes. You find it hard to come up with creative solutions. You are irritable with colleagues and loved ones. You’re not present for the things and people that are most important to you. You feel resentful and unfulfilled. The quality of your work suffers. Your business suffers. Your relationships suffer. You suffer.

Everything suffers when we don’t look after ourselves first.

The BodyIntelligence EASY Self-Care Program offers you a simple way to start putting yourself first that is not onerous or time-consuming.

“A simple thought for every day – quick and easy, yet very effective.”
—Catherine, UK (past participant)


WHAT Does the Program Involve?

The whole point of the program is that self-care is something accessible to all of us, and doesn’t need to take very long. Grounded in the principles of the Alexander Technique, self-care can be as quick as a moment of thought to reset your thinking and awareness a few times a day. This idea, along with some quick, simple self-care practices, forms the basis of the program.

This is what you’ll get:

“Thought for the Day”
Each weekday I’ll send you a “Thought for the Day.” This will provide a simple way for you to shift your attention and thinking in a moment. It’s SELF CARE that only takes a second or two – a second or two to be present, calm your nervous system, and find more inner freedom and ease. You will be able to return to this thought at any time throughout your day. 

I have carefully crafted and sequenced these simple “thoughts” to direct your attention and thinking in a way that inspires expansiveness, release of tension, freedom of movement and being, possibility and choice. As your proficiency with them grows, the benefits build.

I will send the “Thought for the Day” via email, and will also attach a version you can print and post somewhere as a reminder.

Two Individual Self-Care Strategy Sessions
You have the option to schedule a 20-minute personal coaching session with me to help you come up with your own easy and doable “self-care implementation strategy” so you can make the most out of this program. There will also be an opportunity to schedule a follow-up session later in the program.
Note: Self-Care Strategy Sessions not included in the BASIC program.

Weekly Check In 
Each weekend I’ll check in with you via email to see how you’re doing. The email will also include a quick “digest” of that week’s “Thoughts for the Day.”

Two Short Video Sessions Each Month (six total)
Each month you will be sent two half-hour videos, in which I briefly discuss and offer guidance on some of the ideas from the daily “Thoughts” and lead a guided self-care practice, such as Constructive Rest. 

Six Recordings
You will have unlimited access to all the videos, and will also be able to download the recordings onto your own computer or device. At the end of the three months you will have six audios you can continue to use any time you want.

Support
I will, of course, be available to support you and answer questions via email, as well as in your individual self-care strategy session.

Anyone can use the EASY Self-Care Program thoughts.  Everyone should!

“I started Imogen’s program in January 2017. I was going through a difficult time with family, but my friends remarked how calm I seemed. I am sure that it had everything with taking the Self-Care Program. Every day I logged on to see how I could help my body. Imogen’s Thoughts for the Day resonated with my body awareness. Imogen’s daily thought became my mantra for that day. 

“When Imogen offered an opportunity to take the program again, I decided to do it.  Am I getting as much out of the course as the first time? Yes! It’s easier to remember the daily thoughts. I swim for exercise and use the thoughts there.  A nice combination.

“Remember, you only get one body in this life.  The EASY Self-Care Program thoughts help you do that!”
—Nancy Walsh, Alexander Technique student, Chadds Ford, PA, USA

“Imogen’s method has been so beneficial for me. When I tried to do the “classic” inhibiting and directing before, it felt like another imposition — forcing myself to get it right. With what Imogen has been presenting, it’s all about BEING free — enjoying it now, not when I’m perfect.”
—Joyce Goldman, Translator, Japan

“I really enjoyed the program. It was kind of effortless, which I suppose is what it’s all about! It was good to have the simple thought to come back to over the day, and as it was so short, there was always time for it, no matter how busy my schedule. The video sessions were very helpful, too.”
—Catherine, UK (past participant)
