The Body-Mind connection is one of the most valuable approaches in coaching.
This advanced class will invite you to understand and work with the intelligence of somatic awareness and mindfulness practices through the spacious lens of coaching. We will practice going beyond being a “brain on a stick” and learn how the soma can inform and support inner change, outer change, and of course, coaching. Observed coaching sessions and practice groups will be a significant part of each class. This class is more experiential than cognitive.
• Explore and get to know the intelligence of somatic wisdom
• Implement somatic mindfulness/awareness practices into everyday life
• Study and de-clutter Body-Mind belief systems
• Learn to incorporate Body-Mind awareness in coaching

What Students Are Saying
This course [Body Electric] gives a wonderful overview of how much the body affects us and how to use that knowledge to help move the coaching process along.
Probably the single best course I’ve taken in a decade. The somatic templates and in-course use of them were shared from a place of deep knowing and wisdom. Amazing. The reading and sharing of new practices (for me) has made this whole course one of tapping into an ancient wisdom with simple and real practical use. Thank you!
This course [Body Electric] really teaches you how to dive deep into somatic awareness. I was looking to get more comfortable with this practice and the class exceeded my expectations from the book to the instructor, Ann-Marie, to the guest lecturers. Many “WOW” moments as I used the techniques for myself and with my clients.
Learning how to listen deeply to the wisdom of the body and to trust that we are fluent in our own somatic language has provided such a valuable coaching tool and life practice.
I love the capacity to be “unique and whole.” In this course, amidst the trauma of coronavirus, I found it was still possible to listen deeply in the moment. So thank you to this class and the life-giving experiences it offered. The course gave me fresh air for both my mind and body.
I fell in love with somatic coaching. I never thought I could actually talk to my body. A completely new world opened up for me personally, as I am sure will be the case also for my clients. I now fully understand as I have experienced it that somatic coaching is the only really holistic way to get to core of the challenges and to the goals that are completely aligned with ourselves.
Watching Ann-Marie coach is always such a great experience. I always learn a lot from her style and approach to things. She is a gifted instructor. I love her pace and the calmness she exudes in her teaching style.
Body Electric takes a coach deep into their own somatic wisdom. This embodied learning then becomes a backbone to how we coach.
What an amazing journey into the human body and being present within yourself!
The Body Electric teaches important skills for being present and grounded as a coach that will help students trust their intuition and make deeper connections with their clients.
