Does your relationship ever feel “stuck?” Does it ever feel like you can’t communicate, even when you’re talking all the time?
Relationships are about feeling, and feeling takes place in the body, not the brain. Your body responds and reacts to your partner’s body. That’s because 93% of your communication is non-verbal (movement and tone of voice). How you carry yourself and how you physically move through the world matters, for yourself and for your partner. Connecting through movement brings feeling to the forefront.
Somatic movement education/therapy is a holistic approach to moving well that focuses on the internal experience of the moving body rather than an external end result like building muscle or losing weight. Moving the body with awareness and intention brings together the physical, mental and emotional parts of our being. For couples, movement is key to good communication, trust and romance.
Through basic slow-dancing and simple “positive tension” movement activities that focus on leading, following, giving and receiving, couples can discover and practice more effective movement patterns. Moving together “somatically” brings new closeness and improved communication, all while focusing on the present rather than the past.
While somatic therapy for couples does involve dialogue and dancing, it is not talk therapy or dance class. Rather, it is a fun, enlightening and empowering way to protect, invest in and grow your relationship, with music that you both love or loved in your early ‘together’ days. Sessions are 80 minutes.
Helping couples MOVE together with…
RESILIENCE: Recover quickly from misunderstandings. Have faith in yourselves and grace for each other. Ground yourselves in the present and trust what lies ahead.
PURPOSE: Make choices that reflect your self-worth while honoring and loving your partner. Set clear boundaries. Communicate effectively. Step confidently toward each other.
SENSITIVITY: Wake up your senses. See and be seen. Listen and be heard. Communicate with authenticity, softness and warmth. Feel and experience being together in new ways.
FREEDOM: Release hurt, anger or guilt lodged in your bodies. Re-establish trust. Be in the flow of joy, fun, laughter and gratitude.

“I must say I was hesitant on doing this but it didn’t take long into our first session and Angie’s professional, yet fun personality put me at ease and I was actually having fun! I was able to relax as she has an enjoyable sense of humor she intertwined with her great knowledge of how the body and mind work together. Angie is very intuitive and a great listener which helped her to incorporate new ideas, along with the tried and true, while building personalized sessions off previous ones. Her soothing voice and encouraging words are inspiring. I would highly recommend to all couples (including engaged or newlyweds) to do this work with Angie as they will benefit so much from their investment of time and money.”Glenn T.
