somatic coaching + integrative body work

What is your deepest yearning?


Somatic coaching and integrative body work offer a path of self-discovery and transformation, where the power of your body and mind converge to create profound change.


Offered in single sessions or multi-session packages, these body-centered practices draw on many traditions and somatic disciplines:

  • dialog and discovery
  • grounding and centering 
  • somatic practices, including meditation, breath work, massage, movement, energy work
  • observation and assessment​
  • action planning and integration


​Discover your body’s wisdom, harness the power of presence, and awaken your full potential.
