Limits & Boundaries
Are social interactions overwhelming for you?
Are you confused by why you keep getting sick?
Do you often feel like you get the short end of the stick- overgiving or being “nice?”
Do you struggle to feel comfortable in your own skin?
Do you freeze in the moment— only later to think of the perfect response?
Limits and Boundaries is for you, if you experience:
If you can't set limits, your body will set them for you.
Or, instead of working with healthy boundaries, you might hide out in your internal world.
You might avoid dating and the news.
You don’t dare change your situation, because you know subconsciously that changing things … meaning you’d have to create and maintain boundaries.
And for many of us, that’s frightening.
Does having boundaries mean you’ll rupture connection?
In this course, you’ll learn to feel what’s truly yours, and what belongs to others.
And how to hold your ground.
You’ll learn to set limits and boundaries in your own life so that you have more left over to know and express yourself, thrive in what you do, and create meaningful, real connection.
Our bodies are speaking louder than all of our frameworks, philosophies, and sophisticated ideas.
So how do we work with our bodies to change the story?
How Limits & Boundaries is changing lives:
“At a consultation last week with a new Physical Therapist, I finally advocated for myself. I wonder if her being a woman had anything to do with feeling like I could finally Jaguar up and advocate for myself.
I told her from the beginning, look, I’m not your average patient. I know a lot about movement and the body. I’m a dancer and move my body in ways that most people don’t. When we got to the movement tests, I asked her to get specific. When she said stand on one leg, I asked her how- with a lateral shift or by letting my hips tilt? When she said touch your toes, I asked with a flat back or a flexed spine? When she said twist your spine, I asked from my thoracic spine, lumbar spine, or hips? Etc. I made her get specific about everything. I told her the movements she didn’t test for and showed her what movements cause me pain.
I felt activated (nervous and anxious) while doing this. It wasn’t easy for me to speak up and redirect the session when necessary. The story in my head is they’re the expert and because I never became a doctor, PT, or chiropractor, they must know more than me. Or that I’m being arrogant or confrontational by saying what I know. But that isn’t true.
I kept her on her toes and made her work. And you know what, I finally got some useful care.”
This course is for:

This course has less theory and even more embodied practice than Jaguar. It’s a great complement to Jaguar for those who want more foundational material on the theme of boundary strengthening, sexual autonomy and differentiation. We zoom-in on one piece of Jaguar. Jaguar covers major principles of the nervous system, and this course is about one major aspect of selfhood.
Our culture is currently in this phase of differentiation—this course gives us the tools to differentiate gracefully. Differentiation requires ego strengthening. A lot of spiritual practice asks us to break down our ego conditioning- however many of did not start out with something strong to break down which can lead to further fragmentation, and a feeling of displacement.
Differentiation is the concept of knowing and owning what’s yours. It’s what allows us not to take everything personally- to know what is our part and what is not. Differentiation allows you to tolerate conflict. You can stand in your truth even if it’s different than what others around you believe, without having to necessarily needing to reject them. You can disagree with someone and go on with your day. Then you can do your own work in the world with ease, and feel comfortable in your own skin.
The videos in this course are meant to be watched once per week in order. You’ll get access to a new video class each week. You’ll receive information and experiential exercises in each video that you can work with all week.
You will be invited to join the Magas and Jaguars Facebook group which is a community forum to share experiences related to coursework with Kimberly.
I created this course because there is a deep need in our culture for differentiation, and for being able to hold our ground with compassion—especially toward ourselves. We can maintain connection and renegotiate trauma through setting our own clear boundaries. Join this class for a deeply embodied education and real-life tools in holding your ground and owning your worth.
