Our students love MVP's
approach to learning

The Somatic Healing Certification course itself is designed well with step by step instructions, clear explanations and helpful video demonstrations.

Sarah H. 

Somatic healing is an opportunity that has helped me to become more self-aligned. I am excited to help my clients. Somatic healing is a journey that will make my clients feel safe being present. They will have tools to help themselves during uncomfortable moments of being emotionally triggered.

Donna L. 

Overall, this course has been a wealth of information and it has been a very smooth transition from learning the material from the course to implementing and forming my Somatic Healing Practice. 

Lorraine H, 

I’ve begun to apply somatics into my yoga classes. It’s subtle but I feel any student can benefit from a bit of body awareness. I try to piece together classes that help the student recognize the small changes in effort and to observe if sensation or thought accompany as well. Most of this is done with the use of props – the ground, wall, blocks, bolsters, chair.

Jennifer R. 

Facilitating somatic practices that blend distance healing, partner work, goal setting, and personalized client plans opens up a world of possibilities to add to my current offerings. My biggest takeaways for each of these elements is how they work together to support healing in a holistic way.
