Sara Williams - "I have never experienced the depth of insight into my body in an exercise class than I have in the hands of Beverly Carter" - London UK
In over 30 years of active participation in health and fitness, both in a personal and professional practitioner capacity, I can unequivocally say that I have never experienced the depth of insight into my body in an exercise class than I have done in the hands of Beverly Carter. Even calling it an ‘exercise class’ reduces the enormity of what she offered me to connect to in those sessions.
We tend to go from class to class, teacher to teacher, modality to modality, having someone’s idea of what is best for our body applied to us. We submit ourselves to these professionals, and with the best of intentions they impart their knowledge and support us to fit into and follow a regime that albeit bespoke at times, is still confined to what their vision of healthy and fit is. With Beverly, someone who has spent a lifetime, and at a very high level, in the fitness industry,
I experienced a trainer who truly met me and allowed my body to voice what was needed. It was so simple yet so profound. She not only listened to my body as she observed me move, but invited me to listen to my body more deeply as she moved/stretched me. For someone who considers themselves very connected with her body, Beverly was able to open up areas of awareness of my body and its movements in ways I had not expected. This inspired me to greater attentiveness and motivation to exercise, but not from a Ra Ra motivation that comes from someone outside of me, but a spark within me that the session with Beverly helped ignite.
She’s an incredible practitioner of not just fitness, but of body awareness that naturally leads to body confidence and the joy that arises from caring for your body.
