Sanne

I was 26, and until then, I had primarily lived in my head. I did what I thought the world expected of me, without considering what I truly wanted in the world.

 

When someone asked what I wanted, a strange twist occurred in my mind: 'What would the other person want? Because then I'll say that's what I want.' This was so unconscious that I didn't even realize I was doing it.

The same applied to sex. I approached sex from my head: what exactly is the purpose here, and what does the other person want from me? I couldn't fully enjoy it myself because I was so caught up in my thoughts and couldn't really feel.

How I came home to myself

At the age of 26, I taught my first yoga class (as a substitute for a friend), and that was the very first moment in my adult life when something I did felt like I was born for it. It flowed effortlessly! I was not used to that at all. I was accustomed to always working hard mentally to fit in so that others would accept me.

 

At this moment, I could feel a wholehearted YES for the first time and dared to take the leap. I quit my job, found part-time work that suited me better, and enrolled in a four-year yoga teacher training programme.

 

The first year of the training was entirely focused on our own process. I learned to meditate, and slowly my body began to relax. Beneath all the tension, I discovered so many feelings and emotions. I didn't understand anything about what I was feeling, and I frequently cried and sat with my hands in my hair, thinking, 'I feel so much, and I understand absolutely nothing!'

 

In the following years, I began to feel and understand myself and my feelings better. I also encountered my sexual energy and sexuality. Gradually, I started to enjoy sex more and more.

 

A second wholehearted YES came when I participated in Layla Martin's Sacred Sexuality programme. I felt that my next step would be Layla's coaching training. Once again, I quit my job and took the leap.

This training provided me with an even deeper deep dive into myself. I not only learned to be more aware toward towards my feelings and understand myself as a person, I also learned to love myself at a whole new level. I developed deep compassion and wonder for everything that lives within me.

 

I now understand that living in my head is a survival mechanism. It is a protector that wants to keep me safe. I have learned to see that I have a choice not to disappear into my head and to choose to be in my body.

 

And making this choice doesn't always work immediately (unfortunately!). There are days when I find it challenging to get out of my head. However, I have built a solid toolbox with various techniques that help me connect with my body and everything I feel. This way, I always come back home to myself.

And now I can truly say: I love my life and the sex I have!

 

I am incredibly excited to share the tools and techniques I have learned over the past years with you, so that you too can fully enjoy your sex and your life!
