DescriptionThe Art of Somatic Coaching introduces the concepts and principles of somatic coaching with practices that include body awareness, bodywork, and mindfulness for both the coach and the client. 

1 Core, .5 RD CCEU

In this highly interactive, experiential program, participants will

  • learn the importance of implementing body-oriented somatic practices in order to achieve truly sustainable embodied changes in individuals, teams, and organizations
  • deepen their awareness and knowledge of how somatic practices play a fundamental role in enabling one to dissolve habits, behaviors, and interpretations of the world that are no longer relevant or no longer serve the client.
  • explore how these ways of being are integrated in the body--at the level of the musculature, organs, and nervous system.
  • learn some simple somatic concepts and practices that support shifting these patterns in order for transformation to occur, which you can start using tomorrow
