"Somewhere in the gentle space between where movement and stillness meet, lies a peaceful experience of being at home in your body and at ease in your breath. This is the experience of Embodiment, the purest liberation that happens here and now and IN your body. When you allow yourself to express and move and rest, you are set free to live your life from a place of beautiful flow and spaciousness."

- Stefani Wilton, creator of Somatic Embodiment Yoga 

This training is a calling back to the feminine wisdom of the heart and a reclamation of our voices as female-identifying humans . . . as women. It is a declaration that within the quiet voice lies strength and within stillness lies the most powerful of energies. It is a calling back to your RIGHT to be here, to MOVE, to DANCE, to SING, and to EXPRESS. This is a celebration of the beautiful power that exists when the feminine gathers. This training is about reclaiming your body as a space where you feel SAFE, as a space where you FEEL, ALLOW, and EMOTE. In yogic understanding, the brain is not your place of wisdom. Wisdom lies in the deepest of spaces with the heart, the CITTA. This training is your invitation to come home to this space of KNOWING, FEELING, and TRUSTING YOUR INTUITION. 

This program is a weaving of the arts of Ayurveda, Somatic Movement, Yoga Therapy, Heart Wisdom, and Feminine Yoga Philosophy with the practices of Adaptive Vinyasa (Viniyoga), Restorative Yoga, Breathwork, and Meditation. This is a foundational program that gifts you with the wisdom of Somatic Yoga Therapy so that you can heal yourself. Instead of traditional learning, this is an embodied journey through inspiring body-based experiences. With a deep dive into Earth Element tools for grounding, listening to the body, learning the language of your body, and working with the nervous system to restore regulation; this program introduces you to the principles of yoga therapy from the very start, so that you may become a student of your own body through the lens of Somatic Yoga Therapy.

This beautiful training is for those who feel ready to step into self-discovery and personal evolution which prepares you to share the gift of Trauma-informed Somatic Yoga and Somatic Rest with others in a profound and meaningful way. By dancing between experiencing and applying the knowledge, we intend to support you in deepening your own embodied practice and in becoming a teacher of presence and substance.

This training program is recommended as a preparatory course for those intending to apply to the Somatic Yoga Therapist Training. Still, anyone with a sincere desire to delve into the study of Somatic Yoga is welcome to join.  Upon graduation, you will earn the designation of 'Somatic Embodiment Yoga Teacher' and may refer to yourself as a trauma-informed teacher.
