Episode 13: Jane Clapp on Movement, Mindfulness and Embodiment

podcast Feb 12, 2020

In this weeks episode I get the privilege of interviewing Jane Clapp. Jane is a mindful strength and movement coach, a trauma informed embodied resilience expert and a Jungian Analyst in training.

Her bio states: 

“You would probably agree with me that we're all healing from some past hurt or loss. That doesn’t mean we're broken. In fact, our past struggles, traumas or health issues don’t have to be a life sentence. I believe we have the power, with enough support and resourcing, to free ourselves from the shackles that limit our recovery process and our potential for more happiness and joy. While it is widely accepted that mindfulness is necessary to shape the body, I assert that the body and movement is one of the most powerful alchemic tools for shaping the mind. After all, how can we harness our intuition and resilience if we only use our heads?

 

As a practitioner in the health industry for two decades, my approach is to weave my diverse training in holistic and mindful strength and movement coaching with trauma informed mindfulness and nervous system regulation interventions, transforming emotional and physical overwhelm into embodied strength, mobility and vitality. Through personal and professional exploration, I know that you can cultivate a deeply felt sense of resilience and agency to realize more freedom and joy in your life.

I am also an experienced speaker, widely consulted media expert in print, radio and TV and an internationally recognized author.”

 

In this conversation we cover: 

  • Not being afraid of pain
  • Giving clients and ourselves the ability to process what they need to
  • This idea of ‘being in your head’.
  • The individualistic approach to ‘getting out of our heads’
  • Accessing intuition, the what and how
  • What about tools for new moms, they are carrying so much, transitioning through so much, and yet often have very little support, what are simple tools you give to them to help them support themselves?
  • We dive into being an emphatic leader, and how empaths and caretakers are wired and how you approach that mindset
  • Trauma informed mindfulness
  • How she personally processes bearing witness to her clients pain, healing and growth
  • And so much more!

This was a fun, fluid conversation with an expert in their field. Jane has a deep knowledge that is confident enough to not have a simple formulaic approach to movement, healing and empowerment, but explores the nuances that make us complex humans.
