Namaste, I’m Mirabelle .
I am here to support your desires by empowering you to connect initmately with life. We do this together by bravely and vulnerably experiencing the whole spectrum of your emotions and desires.
In our work together, there is no right or wrong, only what arises from the body when we meet it with a pure desire to feel, listen and acknowledge its experience, all that it is holding inside.
Intimacy with breath, co-meditation and nurturing commitment are the pillars that allow grace to unfold in our journey together.
I provide a simple, practical and deeply loving space to allow you to unplug from urgency, into deep trust and allowing.
Sadhana (daily spiritual practice)
is my daily bread
Prana (expansion of life force)
is my muse
is my flow
is my highest goal.
Born in Mumbai, yoga, spirituality, many religions and chaos were always around me. I was born into a Catholic family, attended a Muslim school, learnt classical Indian (Hindu) dancing and lived 2 floors above a Sikh place of workship. All this both fascinated me and made me uncomfortable. Little did I know that all experiences would trigger and nurture my deep need to be at ease with paradoxes, growing to be with life as it is.
I always felt a kind of anxious buzz in my body-mind, as well as a trust that there was more to life. I felt energy and sensed things that no one could understand. I devoured books on the unknown, the rejected and the unthinkable. I battled depression and courted suicidal thoughts. I found dance. Dance was my space to sweat my prayers
….until I had a slipped disc at age 25, discovered I had congenital spinal anomalies and a slim chance of healing after surgery. I recalled the true story of an Indian Classical dancer who lost her foot and trained herself to dance with an artificial foot. I made my way to the Sivananda Ashram in the Himalayas and by pure grace, I had an incredible visceral experience of feeling my whole body and being vibrate like atoms expanding and diffusing at a rapid pace….it changed everything
Sadhana (all of life as a daily spiritual practice) became my act of self-love. Healing unfolded with an inexplicable patience and aceeptance. Today, I am still unravelling all that keeps me in judgment and disconnection in my inner landscape with the daily guidance of my guru and the grace of the Divine. Trusting and allowing is all there is….
