I came to the training because students keep coming to me with pain. I now have a greater understanding of how to help people move well and still present them with the physical challenge and relaxation that so many people want from yoga.

As a yoga teacher people constantly tell me about pain in their body and their limitations in movement. I came to this SomaYoga training to be able to help my students. I learned how to teach myself and others how to move well and that there is so much more to yoga then feeling sensation. Pain runs deeper than the body and we need to be open to freeing pain in our mind. We are made to move and everyone would benefit from SomaYoga.

At 15, I discovered I had a scoliosis and for the following 30 years I mostly just ignored it because I was told there was nothing that could be done about it. I loved to run and hike and put up with the occasional time when my back would give me trouble for a few weeks or months at a time. Then one day, during a particularly stressful time period, I woke up with lower back pain that got progressively worse. As the weeks led to months, I sought out all sorts of specialists: chiropractor, physiotherapist, massage therapist, pelvic health physiotherapist. Most would ultimately tell me that they didn’t know how to help me as all their usual “tricks” were not working. My back had become one tight mass of muscles that simply would not release themselves. Even taking the dogs for a short walk was painful. After a year and a half, I stumbled upon Carrie Meyer and her Somatic Neuromuscular Re-education Therapy. It has been a lifesaver. My back has transformed from a mass that moved as one unit, to a functional back where I have regained control over individual muscle groups. My posture has changed dramatically. I can lie flat on a table again. I can walk the dogs without pain again. Most importantly, she has given me the skills to keep working on my back. This is not a type of treatment where someone works on your back and fixes it for you – Carrie teaches you how to fix it yourself, giving you incredibly valuable skills and body awareness. It has not been easy, it has taken a long time and I am not yet fully re-covered, but I am seeing tremendous improvements. I feel empowered, and I feel that someday I may run again.… Read more “I learned how to “take control” of my own healing”
After 3 sessions, I was surprised by a positive shift in my mood and outlook that I had not even been aware that I needed…. I am aware that my pelvis sits at an entirely new angle. I can stand and walk with greater ease and all movement is so much more enjoyable.

So I hit the rope wall today at lunch… & experienced 1st hand what Nicole has been describing this past week: I could’ve planked for hours!!! Usually it feels like so much more effort but today, it was just easy… shockingly so! Also experienced the b-e-s-t spinal decompression when we went into inversions on the ropes… & not just in the spine but I could feel the change in my hips as well, much more open & airy than usual. MAGIC!!! really excited to see what happens after 2/3/6mths with a regular SomaYoga practice SomaYoga Intensive Sept 2019
I love the fact that I am back enjoying the things I love with a new and healthy attitude, awareness and increased mobility and function…This therapy is much better than medication for dealing with those nagging pains that come and go Read more “I can now get up and down off the floor to play with my grandson”
