Somatic Coaching

Our bodies are “built” through our lifetime, we are shaped, even morphed, by our unique experiences. Our muscles and tissues reflect our cumulative experience.

As babies, we arrive pliable, malleable, and over time our dimensionality diminishes. The histories of our life impact our body structures, creating distortions. Sometimes our energies are minimized, instead of opening to the world of experience, we might brace ourselves for impact. Some people get smaller than they are, withdraw, or overexert themselves. Our individual responses are varied and discoverable, If we want physical or psychological changes to hold, we need to literally transform our shapes, to mold ourselves to the present.

Somatic coaching supports this holistic balance. Together, we explore body shaping, using the disorganization of old patterning to reorganize into present time.  Through dialogue, journaling, movement, & bodywork, coaching helps people to reorganize & reshape themselves from the inside out. If we learn to balance our body in length, width, and depth, we learn to enhance our power, passion, and expression. 

If you are interested in learning to become a keen observer of your own experience and learning to deepen your understanding of your body sensations and emotions, somatic coaching is for you. Join me on a discovery of uncovering how your sensations, emotions, moods, narratives and world view are shaping your life.

Realization Process Meditation

The Realization Process is a series of meditative practices leading to embodied nondual awakening. Through sitting, standing, and moving practices, individuals can develop spiritual awareness, deepen their capacity for contact with themselves and others and reconnect with the world.  Moving practices support taking this embodied awake experience, attunement to fundamental consciousness, into the world.

TRE® (Tension & Trauma Release Exercises)

Are you interested in finding more ease? Do you long to find freedom from everyday stress, illness, accidents, or trauma? If so, TRE® would be a wonderful tool for you.

Developed by Dr. David Berceli, TRE® (Tension & Trauma Release Exercises) is a unique self-care tool used to release acute and chronic stress.

Designed to be a self-directed tool to help regulate and restore balance to the nervous system. It is based on the premise that we all have an intrinsic, physical drive to release tension and to recover from stress and/or trauma.

Throughout the TRE® process, you are guided to stay tuned into the present moment, to adjust the pace of your movements, and to maintain comfort. Individuals learn to listen to their body’s internal cues, to modulate their own experience, and to find ease within the process.

TRE® begins with a series of mild exercises that lead to tremor-like movements. Initiated by the Central Nervous System, the tremors manifest along a spectrum from very subtle vibration to more active rocking or shaking. The tremors free entrapments within the myofascial tissue of the body. The seven simple exercises used to initiate the tremor process are accessible to anyone- modifications can easily be made to accommodate individual needs or abilities.

TRE® is a safe and effective way to activate the Central Nervous System’s reflex to process, recover, and heal.

Reported Benefits of TRE® include:

Increased : • energy • sense of ease and calm • flexibility/range of motion • ability to manage life and work responsibilities • safety and presence within one’s body • ability to sleep

Decreased: • worry, anxiety • emotional reactivity • hyper-vigilance

“Liz has an incredible, magical ability to perfectly sequence her classes. There is a poetry that works through her in a way that I have not ever experienced with another teacher. She always manages to weave an idea or concept through each pose in class, building both the physical and internal yoga to a crescendo. She acknowledges internal states throughout the practice and gives cues for staying connected internally. Her classes are some of the most powerful yoga experiences I have ever had. Frequently, I share what I experienced in class with several of my friends and peers. Her classes are highly attended and they have come to be a “community” atmosphere because of the intimacy she creates. Liz is one of the most gifted teachers I have come across in my yoga life. I have learned more from her in the last two years, than I have in my 15, or so, years of yoga. As the Director of Living Yoga, I would have an incredibly difficult time finding a replacement for her as a trainer. She is excellent, and has made our program strong, vital, and deeply impacting for the students we serve and our volunteers.”
