Professionals’ Training

In-Person & Experiential
Self-Care Included

The body has an amazing ability to protect, regulate, communicate and heal, and body awareness and clear movement expression are critical for strong and healthy families, marriages, work teams and communities. In other words, how people move (and how you move when guiding them) matters.

Through body awareness, body-centered listening and gentle, life-giving movement that releases, awakens and enlivens the FEELING body, you can guide others in finding resilience, purpose, sensitivity and freedom, all without saying a word.

Sensing ~ Feeling ~ Moving is a series of three 3-hour workshops. Each workshop can be customized to the population you and your team specifically serve, with reserved time for discussion and movement application to your anonymous case studies. Book one or book all three. A one-hour “intro” workshop is also available. Learn more about the Sensing ~ Feeling ~ Moving curriculum below.

And let’s not forget about the self-care. The Sensing ~ Feeling ~ Moving workshop series is experiential, meaning you reap all the benefits of a connected and grounded body, simply by attending.

Effectively, confidently and joyfully guide others (and yourself!) to

  • decrease anxiety
  • overcome adverse events
  • elevate mood
  • increase confidence
  • improve focus
  • set and achieve goals
  • safely express emotion
  • set boundaries
  • communicate clearly
  • improve relationships
  • LIVE in the present

All through movement!

BONUS: Training participants receive a 15% discount toward a private one-hour session with Angie. Please request when registering. Learn more about personalized somatic movement therapy on the FOR ADULTS page.

For your convenience, training can take place at your location and on your schedule. Space requirements for on-site training: large space, free of furniture and obstacles, with safe flooring. If your location does not have a suitable training space, rentable space is available at your cost. Please inquire about this and about travel and accommodation expenses for those outside of West Michigan during your COMPLIMENTARY CONSULTATION.

This was one of the best trainings I have ever done. Angie is incredibly knowledgeable and presented the material in a way that was engaging, understandable, and practical. I learned so much about myself and my body, and gained invaluable insight into my work with couples, families, and individuals. Angie has such a gentle manner, but also challenged me to push my growth edge and take risks. I highly recommend this training for any person with a body.
