The Body-Mind connection is one of the most valuable approaches in coaching.
This 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. Guest Lecturers will share their wisdom. Observed coaching sessions and/or practice groups will be part of each class.

What Students Are Saying
Body Electric is great for those that are looking to challenge the automatic responses and default ways of thinking and being. Realizing that the conversation with the body has a different vibration and that it doesn’t always speak quickly is so valuable. Our bodies are a wealth of comfort and wisdom. This class provides tools for starting that dialogue with yourself and with others.
Body Electric takes a coach deep into their own somatic wisdom. This embodied learning then becomes a backbone to how we coach.
The body is a tremendous source of wisdom and Body Electric gives you the keys to open the channels of communication with it. You will be surprised what you can get if you just listen. Thank you for the opportunity to come back as one with my body.
Body Electric gave me more confidence in the mindfulness and somatic tools I was using in my coaching as well as added a whole new dimension of tools to my toolbox. Having access to effective somatic tools has deepened and enriched the coaching experience for me and my clients.
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.
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] gives a wonderful overview of how much the body affects us and how to use that knowledge to help move the coaching process along.
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.
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.
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.
