A deeper dive Into the details

What is somatic coaching?

The word “somatic” is derived from the Greek word “soma” which means “living body.” It acknowledges the body as the source of wisdom and intelligence, one that we often ignore when focusing solely on mindset work to heal and transform. 

In somatic coaching, we involve the body in the process along with the mind and spirit to create a holistic and sustainable approach to the healing process.

What will I be able to do with this training?

Depending on your gifts, what gives you energy & the way you want your business to feel, there are many different ways you can work with clients. As you navigate your way through this program, this will become very clear to you-here are some potential options.

What are the benefits of somatic coaching?

Somatic coaching can offer a number of benefits for you and your clients, including:
Greater self-awareness: Somatic coaching can help you become more aware of your thoughts, feelings, and needs. This can lead to greater clarity about who you are and what you want in life.

Improved relationships: Somatic coaching can help you develop healthier relationships with yourself and others. When you have a better understanding of your needs, you can communicate them more effectively to others. This can lead to more fulfilling and satisfying relationships.

Increased productivity: Somatic coaching can help you become more productive by helping you focus on your goals and taking action steps that align with your values. This can lead to greater success in both your personal and professional life.

Improved mental and physical health: Somatic coaching can help improve your mental and physical health by helping you reduce stress, improve sleep, and increase your overall sense of well-being.

Identity transformation: Somatic coaching can help you embody the qualities of a more empowered identity of your choice. As you become more aware of your thoughts, feelings, and needs, you can start to make choices that align with your values and soul. This can lead to a profound transformation in your life. You can begin to feel more abundance, at ease, and liberated.

When does the program start & end?

You get to begin the program at any time and have complete access to the container for 12 months.

What is the time investment?

Depending on the state of the program, between revising the modules, completing the integrative homework, attending the Embodiment Calls & completing peer support, you will need about 10 hours on average per week. At the beginning of the program this time commitment will be less than 10, and once we move towards practicum this commitment will be around 10 hours. 

 I like that I am fit, but I still have questions. What should I do next? 

Book your discovery call with the Pause Team. The intention of the call is to support you in getting the clarity you need to decide if this program makes sense for you. At the end of the call you’ll know if this is a perfect fit.

Somatic Coaching is the movement of the future and creates lasting transformation not only for yourself but also for your clients! Why wait? Apply now.
