Lani Puriri

Certified Sophrologist

Optimal Performance Mentor

Authentic Awareness Coach

Since 2003 I studied and practiced various holistic ventures in search of something I could fully embrace. Nothing stuck until now. Sophrology, for me, is the complete package. The combination of western science and eastern wisdom ensures the ability to study conscious harmony in a really dynamic way. The practice of sophrology creates conscious awareness whereby I am able to recognise how my body speaks, how my mind thinks and how my spirit engages all of it.

My aim is to help you build a healthy relationship with yourself. Our discovery sessions will engage your holistic self allowing you to create clarity of mind and identify physical sensations within the body.

About Sophrology

Sophrology is the study of conscious harmony. It is a dynamic practice where each exercise combines breathing techniques, gentle movement, and creative visualisation. Once you have learned the many life changing techniques of Sophrology you can practice them anytime you feel the need to slow down, re-energise and feel joy. 

Sophrology focuses not on the problem itself but on the inner resources of the individual. Empowering them to move forward and feel stronger.

 

The structured sophrology programme being used today has grown out of research and experience. Sophrology was created by Prof. Alfonso Caycedo who was a neuro-psychiatrist, studying medicine in Spain after the Civil War in the 1960s. He was searching for a way to effectively bring traumatised war victims back to a healthy physical and mental state with minimal use of medication. 

The professor worked with Doctors in Switzerland and travelled to the East studying Yoga, Zen and Buddhism, searching for core practices and exercises that speedily and effectively produced positive results. 

 

Sophrology is widely practiced across Continental Europe in different settings including schools, hospitals, and corporate environments. The dynamic practice is beginning to grow globally and is championed by everyone from Olympic athletes to outstanding CEOs.

In Switzerland Sophrology has been proven to help people reduce intake of medication by 30% and is reimbursed by the Swiss National Insurance programmes.

 

Sophrology can influence and transform your life.
