Nix both challenged me, but also believed in my capacity for change and by session two, I was hanging upside down without holding on with my hands.
I truly never believed my body could do this.
Nix gently coaches through the hard parts where previously my shame and humiliation would have sent me running, and she joyfully celebrates the achievements.
The other members are kind and supportive and I am so grateful for the safe and trusting space
