The Shiva Nata Roundtable is a series of prompts to encourage writing about Shiva Nata.
So Here Goes
The third prompt is “How Does Shiva Nata Help You Meet Your Goals?“ and my response is outlined below.
Looking back, what were your goals in life and how has Shiva Nata helped you meet them?
I originally ordered the starter kit from Havi, because I wanted to bring more movement into my life. She had said it didn’t matter if I didn’t practise often, and that most students would practise and then leave it for months, before dusting off the DVD again. And that was okay.
Are there any examples which stand out?
The first time I noticed a real-life impact on a goal though, was my undergraduate dissertation thesis. I’d been staring at my introduction for days, trying to make it flow. I still didn’t understand the concepts I was supposed to be explaining in it. I remember spending three days just looking at that introduction and flailing. I would do 45 seconds of shivanata, 15 of shavasana (rest) and then go back to staring at the writing.
On the third evening, it clicked. I was standing up, arms moving, legs still – and I saw the colours in front of me. The colours I’d used to code my work; the colours I’d used instead of numbers for the practise. 1:1, 2:1 became “green blue, orange blue” and I saw my paragraphs neatly arranged, colour by colour. I ran to write the formulae down and switched the orders around. I gave it in without reading it again.
Going forward, what are you seeking now and how can Shiva Nata help you bring it to fruition?
I’m using Shivanata to build up a business about the concepts of Shivanata. My goal is to teach, and to teach others to teach. Alongside the movement practise, I’m building up a redefinition alchemy aspect; where we can deal with the mental and emotional side-effects a Shivanata practise can bring.

Do you have a view to share with us? You don’t need to be a master of Level 7, a trained teacher, or even have opened up your DVD. If you’re thinking about flailing, you have a place in this conversation.
