We work with embodiment of the fluids when we move from the core body, the physiological responses correlated to our vagal tone, active listening, and working with perspectives / vestibular system through the lateral body.

Yesterday Dewi Chen of Terra Luna Yoga dropped into my little home studio to share a conversation about somatics, yoga, sensorial languaging, existentialism... There was a short practice too, albeit punctuated by technological hiccups on the other camera
Journeying into somatics
I remember the first studio yoga class I taught 12 years ago became a private lesson because only 1 person showed up!
I was all nerves but it was one hour of full presence, connecting mind to mind, body to body, soul to soul.
The rest is history.
As I delve deeper into how we embody the human condition and each of our own journey into healing, I found the field of Somatics as the relational roadmap to understand why we are how we are - as individual organism, and as collective communities.
I have worked with thousands of individuals since then, from age 0 to age 90+.
I work with people who suffer from chronic pain and help post-stroke patients reconnect their body with their brain.
I assist stressed-out execs in carving out space for quality rest in their busy schedule to get out of their heads and into their bodies.
I help people hone their sensory awareness, to honour the stories written in our body, to reclaim our inherent wholeness.
I teach people how to FEEL again.
(This was way before phrases like Embodiment, Somatics, and Trauma became trendy jargon)
So if you're on this journey too, or have a sense of curiosity or interest in uncovering how our brain is our body, and how to develop your own roadmap to healing self and others, or if you work privately with clients in the realm of the body and mind, I invite you to join me in this upcoming training.
