At 40 years old, I woke up and finally realized what was holding me back. I had given away my power and silenced my voice.
It didn’t happen overnight.
It was an accumulation of life events, unresolved traumas, lack of boundaries, and fear. For me, it had so much to do with wanting to be accepted and fitting a mold. I was feeling alone and didn’t have much female support. It had to do with wanting to accomplish great things and not understanding why I was stuck!
All of our stories are different, but our needs are the same.
We need to feel seen, heard, and worthy, but we can’t figure out why simply claiming that is not enough. We reside in our heads trying to intellectualize our circumstances while ignoring our screaming bodies who want to show us our real power.
The truth is that it’s not working.
Embrace your true worth so you don’t need the constant validation of others.
Choose empowering belief systems that help you create the life you truly want.
Gain confidence and clarity in making life decisions both big and small.
25 years ago, I was involved in a long relationship that was taking a big toll on me. A friend recommended that I see an energy healer so I could better understand why it was so hard for me to make my relationship work.
For the first time in my life, I found answers and guidance from within and true clarity. I began to listen to my body and trust myself. I had a glimpse of where true power resides. I learned how we hold our emotions within our bodies and how that impacts our daily lives. This was my introduction to both energy and somatic work.
In that moment, I understood that this would be my course of healing – not only for myself, but eventually for those who I would have the privilege of helping.
The key is understanding how to tap into your own greatness through the tools available and to truly become empowered. It was not an easy journey for me, but one that has made me who I am today and one which eventually brought me to this work as a somatic coach.
Have you ended up regretting not following your gut?
If so, you’re not alone.
In this four-week workshop, I will teach you somatic practices that will help you go within, so you can learn how to trust the signals your body is giving you.
These signals are always present and loud, but we simply choose to ignore them.
Feeling truly empowered can only come from a place of truth. Understanding and accepting your truth is a process. It’s a very personal, beautiful journey. I will share practical tools to help you become aware of where you’re out of alignment.
As women, we are constantly juggling so much, including our thoughts and emotions. This constant “catching up” or “overwhelm” of thinking makes it difficult for us to make empowered decisions. Ultimately, we’re plagued with self-doubt. During the workshop, we will work individually and in a group to illuminate the common causes of what we perceive as “wrong decisions” and provide a new perspective on how to move forward.

“I really enjoyed taking the Somatic Workshop with Maria. I gained so much new knowledge about myself, body, and nervous system. I would definitely recommend it!”
“This workshop was extremely beneficial and eye opening. We were taught the importance of wholeness, to look deep inside to see our superpower. The class helped me focus more on the now, how to deal with unhealthy emotions, and to think of the roots of these emotions. It is empowering to feel that I can control my emotions in a healthy way, to live in the present, and it was an invitation to practice compassion as the ultimate aliveness and self forgiveness. I highly recommend this workshop, and I am putting in my daily routine so many tips and ideas that Maria gave us to help us deal with daily struggles and to establish new habits to help us deal with stress while balancing things up with our busy schedules.”
“My experience in the workshop with Maria motivated me to connect with my body in ways that I had never ever experienced before! Besides her vast and impressive compassionate approach, Maria possesses a keen sense to actively listening and subtracting the key aspects that need attention, and that our body is reflecting. I am truly grateful and appreciative of Maria’s time, expert guidance and support in the process of recognizing and attending my own body’s language.”

In this module we will pay attention and rely on the felt sense to determine how we can transform through somatic practices.
