Student Testimonials

"This soma journey is another fundamental step in my development, but one I feel will help to fill in the gaps, learning how, when we reconnect to the body as a whole, it opens up so many possibilities of better functioning. Yet this is the bit we all find so hard! Not everyone wants to feel and many choose to live with this disconnect, but in freeing oneself in this attentive and nurturing way is transformative."
