SomaYoga Foundations is a 20 hour training for Yoga Teachers, Yoga Therapists, Movement Teachers. Body Workers, Allied Health Practitioners or anyone that has an interest in learning new tools to become the Master of their health & healing. This training will introduce you to the study of neuroscience and Somayoga methodology – to release long held tension & pain patterns so you can live a more embodied life.

Does this sound like you?

So you’ve been practicing as a Yoga Teacher, Yoga Therapist, Movement Teacher or body worker for some time now, or maybe you are an Allied Health Practitioner (Physiotherapist, Occupational Therapist, Massage Therapist, Osteopath, Chiropractor). You are great at what you do and have a serious passion for supporting clients to feel ease in their bodies and their minds.

But…something’s missing.

You feel you could be doing more to help your clients truly move on from chronic and persistent pain, AND you have an inkling there are some new techniques that could help you take your practice even further and ultimately get even better outcomes for your clients.

Then you are in the right place!

This 20 hour training will introduce you to a ‘new way of thinking’ and a ‘new methodology’ to address chronic tension and pain.

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.


In this incredible workshop you will learn:

  • What SomaYoga is and why it is so powerful?

  • The missing piece in how the brain controls movement and learning.

  • Understand how the brain habituates stress, trauma and repetitive movement patterns in the body and how this shows up in 3 main Reflex Patterns.

  • The link between habituated movement, functional wear and tear, and pain.

  • The basics of the neuroscience of Somatics.

  • SomaYoga Concepts and Terms: Sensory Motor Amnesia and Pandiculation.

  • The relationship between mobility, strength and stability to support your favourite activities.

  • Somatic Movements that address each Reflex (Red, Green, and Trauma Reflex). 

  • The importance of functional stability and how to safely add load.

  • Elements of a SomaYoga Class: Theme, Breathing Practices, Somatic Movements, Grounding, Stabilizing, and Mantra

  • How to Sequence a SomaYoga Class.

  • Leave confident to market and teach a somayoga class that your students and clients will rave about!
