SomaYoga Foundations will teach you how to retrain the brain and reset the nervous system to release energetic blocks and pain for your clients. 


SomaYoga is a synergy of somatics, therapeutic yoga and classic asana that helps us work towards smarter muscles, more functional movement and lasting pain resolution. This approach blends neuroscience, philosophy and core practices of Somatics to revolutionize your approach to physical practice and teaching.


This course will introduce you to the concepts and practices you need to start integrating this methodology into your own personal practice, into your classes or therapeutic sessions.

Testimonials from the last training...

This weekend has changed my life. A million times thank you. You two are a gift to chronic pain sufferers.
Kerry K, Yoga Teacher Ottawa, Oct 2023


I came to this training to learn how I can help myself manage pain. I learned so much more. I now have an understanding of how my body is working, how it is responding to other aspects of my life, and how to explore, calm and ease my nervous system to allow growth, kindness and fluidity into my life.

I was interested in this training as a way to release stored trauma in the body. Carrie and Nicole through guided practices showed me how easily pain and discomfort can be released. I’m looking forward to incorporating this into my practice.
Francesca Ranger, Ottawa, Canada, Oct 2023


I have taken a few trainings in Trauma Informed/Sensitive Yoga and I wish that Somatics was incorporated…specifically THIS very digestive, personal, and informative training.

Carrie & Nicole created an environment that allowed safe and empowering learning to take place. Not only did I feel it in my physical body in the offerings of movements, BUT I was truly able to safely absorb the course content.

I have spent lots of time and money…to try and ease my pain and improve my mobility. The things I learned in this workshop have opened my mind to other possibilities and to the possibility that I can help myself. By helping myself get unstuck, I will then be able to reap the benefits of other modalities, exercise and enjoy a life of freedom.

New learning, confirmation and connections abound in an environment initiated by Nicole & Carrie. This course if a life changer, reminding us of our innate wisdom, divine right to be on this beautiful planet, and lead with a heart full of love. We all deserve to live and love a life pain free.
Andrea E, Georgetown, Ontario Oct 2023


I came to the training with tension & pain in my body. After learning these very subtle, small but profound movements, I was able to release many things. Allowing openness and lightness into my body. As a result there was a positive change in me. I hope this change in me filters out of me and flows into the world. Change starts with one.

I have been a chronic pain sufferer for years off and on. This weekend has helped me realize the profound impact of our life experiences & trauma and the result of this in the physical body.

My first time hearing about Somatic Therapy and I was amazed on how much we are not aware of our body and stuck energy that is stored in our body. Taking this course really taught me to embody the practice I’ve learned in this workshop. I am thankful for Nicole and Carrie.
Kat S. Personal Trainer, Ajax, Ontario, Oct 2023


This workshop came up during a time in my life where I have nerver felt so lost, confused, and then to top it off in pain. I cannot be more thankful for this experience - truly believe it has changed me while helping me release some or a little of my Santa Sack (of stuck energy and old belief systems). Excited to learn more and share with others. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I came to the training in hopes to learn more about managing my own personal pain. I have come away with life changing information in order to support my own healing journey as well as share this knowledge with my students. Thank you.
Tracy, Ottawa 2023


As a Yoga Teacher with chronic pain and students that diligently want to share their chronic pain experiences with me, this course has been very insightful and hope that I can incorporate it in my own practices as well as my teaching. Carrie & Nicole were excellent facilitators who share a wonderful authentic energy - this made the experience super enjoyable as well as knowledgeable.
