“Years ago I read something that said: we have to take care of our bodies because if we don’t where is our soul going to live while we are here. Our bodies are the biggest mortgage property we have. We invest in a house, we invest in a new car, we invest in clothes…new glasses, but then when it comes to our bodies people go “I don’t have enough money”!
So to me personally I think you have to invest in your body, mind and soul because this is where we have to live while we are here. And if we don’t take care of this, where are we going to be living? This is our biggest investment…I think this program is definitely worth the investment!
(Since starting this course)…my breathing has improved, (I have) gained control over my muscles and PANDICULATION really works! I did a lot of stretches before and that did not work…but pandiculation is AMAZING!
The biggest benefit (I have received from this program) is that I have learned how to control my muscles and that I truly do have control. "I am the master and guru of myself". ”

I began this program wanting to know more about somatics. Specifically I wanted tools I could use that would ease me when my body was triggered into an anxiety response. This program has gifted me an awareness of self and a number of tools that I now use to re-set my vagus nerve, and reassure and reconnect my mind with my body. I recommend this course to anyone who wants to learn more about the wisdom of their body.
R.K. Yukon, March 2023
I think my biggest transformation has been to expand my focus for well-being from my body to my mind. I’ve always loved physical exercise; now I am learning I need to take care of the mind as well.
I can’t think of a better investment than my own body and mind! This is the only body/mind you have, so treat yourself with care and learn to understand yourself which will allow you to reach your full potential.
Once you take the course you will realize that you will want to refer back to sections, practices, exercises etc. frequently – the life-time access makes this possible!
R. M., April 2023
“I am a yoga teacher and breath coach. I have taken Somatic courses in the past. I jumped at the opportunity to learn more when I heard Nicole and Carrie were offering this course.
I used to live life on auto-pilot never really appreciating the world around me. I accepted my aches and pains as a sign of getting older. Although I practise yoga, I had lingering muscle issues.
This course has helped me realize the mind-body-spirit connection and how I need to check in with myself on a regular basis and take care of me.
Nicole and Carrie had done a really good job sharing the theory with practical examples and exercises you can use in your daily life...and (they)have shared many different techniques to use.
With the lifetime access, I can go back again and again to muscles, exercises, breathing exercises and meditations to help me no matter what my day brings.
I highly recommend this course. It will change your view and approach on life! ”
