Education and Inspiration

Meadow Dove Lang ( Dove )

BodyMind Coach  ~ Registered Massage Therapist  ~ Certified Yoga Teacher ~  Retreat Leader ~ Author ~ Sacred Space Holder ~ Hug Giver

Meadow Dove Lang is in awe of the power of the innate healing abilities of the body & mind.  She is blessed to support your individual inner capabilities to shine forth. This can be a very enjoyable & rewarding process :)  While honouring there can be times of challenge amidst growth & healing, she advocates we banish the idea of "no pain, no gain" ~ when we (re-)align (and reconnect with) our true self, the results can be blissful!  Dove aims to create a safe, supportive environment for this nurturing integration to unfold with ease and grace.

 

Following a desire to help the people she works with empower themselves on a higher level than ever before, Dove continually expands her repertoire and education, to be able to serve and support the best in everyone.  She has a natural talent for holding a loving space, which allows your true self to be seen, and your innate wisdom to shine forth.  She is skilled at facilitating this both in person physically, as well as through the magic of technology (zoom, telephone, etc) ~ she feels blessed to work with the heart-centred people (like you!) she connects with, regardless of geographical location.

She has studied and trained in the BodyMind Method (with Laura Wieck & team), and is thrilled to work with you as a BodyMind (Life) Coach ~ helping you navigate one step at a time, to move from stress, anxiety, and frustration to joy, authenticity, and fulfillment.  Building upon decades of decoding the language of the body and teaching tools to integrate its' teachings (honouring the power of the mind, the wisdom of the heart, the intelligence of the gut, and the alignment of the body with the soul), Dove is buoyed to offer you her most comprehensive level of care yet! This truly transformational modality yields benefits that last a lifetime!  Plus, it can be a whole lot of fun!  Her clients often remark how much they look forward to these sessions, and how elated and empowered they feel.  Dove dives deep, feels what's underneath the words, and amplifies the unconditional love that is available to us all.

Her first true love in her journey as a wellness professional, Dove has been practicing massage therapy for more than 20 years.  She graduated from the 3000-hour program at the West Coast College of Massage Therapy (Vancouver, BC) in 2001.  During that program, she learned a wide variety of modalities, such as Myofascial Release, Swedish massage techniques, NeuroMuscular Release, Lymphatic drainage, CranioSacral Therapy (including Visceral Manipulation), Joint Mobilizations, Orthopedic assessment, Remedial Exercise, Hydrotherapy, and much more.  She has taken post-graduate studies in a number of topics, including Reiki, Dermo-Neuro Modulation, Feldenkrais fundamentals, Trager Therapy and Mentastics, and also furthered her education in anatomy (especially related to fascia), pain science theory, and women's health.

 

After discovering the benefits of yoga during her years at massage therapy school, Dove completed the 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training program at the Salt Spring Centre of Yoga in 2009.  Her studies encompassed all eight limbs of classical yoga, including asana (physical poses), pranayama (breathing exercises), and meditation.  Her approach to yogasana is informed by her rigorous studies in alignment to maintain safety: preventing injuries, and helping yoga to be accessible no matter the level of physical fitness/ability.

 

Dove has a personal interest in Ayurveda (yoga's sister science), as well as Traditional Chinese Medicine, and is confident these ancient teachings are still very relevant today.  Embodiment practices, trauma-informed tools for recovery, and discovering other ways to bring the body & mind into balance also feed her appetite for life-long learning in the realms of self-care and healing.

 

Combining all of these modalities and more, Dove loves to host retreats!  In addition to group offerings, she is gleefully ready to create a personalized retreat for you (alone, or with a small group of your choice) ~ contact her to discuss details!  Location, timing, and programming are all customizable.  What do you want?  How do you want to feel?  There are so many beautiful possibilities to ponder!  Let's do this!

 

In addition to writing her monthly "Dear Body" articles, published in the Maynliner for five years, Dove has recently been invited to contribute to a collaborative book ~ more details to follow!

 

Dove has a special interest (hobby) in photography.  Please contact her if you would like to see more of her photographs, which generally focus on attempting to capture Nature's magnificence.

 

Having spent most of her life on the West Coast of Canada, Dove has been living on Mayne Island since 2003.  She was lured to live nestled in nature, and is rooted to stay because of the wonderful community (including the wildlife of course).  While she loves meeting in person, she is also grateful for the magic of technology to help us stay connected (expanding what "in person" looks like) wherever we live.  She loves eating from the garden her husband Mike so lovingly masters, riding her electric-assist bicycle, dancing, playing in the ocean, and soaking up sun sets/rises.  She regularly supports charities both locally and globally ~ it's up to us to make a difference!
