Gilly Adkins Adv. CBP, Adv. CBI, Sr. CBI
Gilly is a multi-faceted professional with a degree in Physiotherapy from London, England and many years experience in the healing and body-mind field. Born and raised in England she has now lived in the United States since 1986 and has three grown children. As a teenager, Gilly was ranked in the top 10 in tennis in her native England. Her early athletic experiences encouraged studies (in addition to physiotherapy) in mental sports training, personal and professional performance training, certified Inner Game Coach, and nutritional consulting. Gilly is also a certified Bikram Yoga Instructor and owned and directed the original Yoga College of India in Portland, Oregon from 1996 to 2004.
Discovering The BodyTalk System in 1999, Gilly was deeply impressed with Dr. John Veltheim and intuitively understood the significance of the system at once. After introducing BodyTalk to Portland, as a Certified Practitioner, she became a Certified BodyTalk Instructor in 2002 and continues her studies in advanced BodyTalk, through the PaRama College. Gilly became an Advanced Certified BodyTalk Instructor in 2008 and she teaches BodyTalk Fundamentals, BodyTalk Fundamentals Integration, and BodyTalk Bio-Dynamics. Gilly also became a Senior BodyTalk Instructor in 2008 which means she is able to train new instructors to teach BodyTalk Access and BodyTalk Fundamentals.
Gilly is well known for her understanding and articulation of the body-mind complex. Her expertise as a physiotherapist, along with her significant training background and mastery of BodyTalk, creates a wonderful learning environment for BodyTalk practitioners. Infusing her teaching/learning environment with grace and joy, Gilly delights in assisting practitioners with their own healing and helping them build their confidence in practice.
In her private practice Gilly addresses a wide variety of physical and psychological conditions, including musculoskeletal problems, viruses and infections, depression, insomnia, learning and behavior disorders, chemical sensitivities, food and environmental allergies and blood sugar imbalances.
Gilly founded Heart Talk and Intimate Communication in 2010, which offers a practical extension to the consciousness work found in The BodyTalk System. For the last 4 years she has taught weekend intensive workshops and month long teleseminars.
