TAP 039 - Irene Lyon on Rewiring Your Nervous System to Overcome Anxiety & Trauma


In this episode I talk to Irene Lyon about her story and how she came to work in the field she's in.  We discuss trauma, anxiety and how we can begin to heal, through working with our nervous system.

Irene graduated with a bachelor’s degree in sport science in 2000 and obtained her master's in research in the fields of biomedical and health science in 2002. 

Shortly after this, a series of debilitating knee injuries and surgeries turned Irene to investigate alternative healing and wellness practices and she hasn’t looked back since.

She is a certified and highly skilled practitioner of the Feldenkrais method (based on the work of Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais) and Somatic Experiencing (a nervous-system based approach to healing trauma founded by Dr. Peter Levine).   Irene’s brand is her ethos and represents her desire to help the planet, one nervous system at time, by educating, teaching and helping people discover how they can become their own medicine. She is an optimist and a realist, an introvert and an extrovert, a creative science geek and a lover of the natural world.
