The Embodiment Track teaches Michaela Boehm’s Non-Linear Movement Method®. This powerful somatic method has been developed by Michaela over the past 2 decades of instruction and practice.

I loved the practical applications

I loved the practical applications and that my own work is required and encouraged. The opportunities for Q&A and teachers’ level of insight and personal experience worked for me. I loved the balance of ‘going with the flow’ and still adhering to a rather packed curriculum. I also loved that the structure for teaching a workshop is part of the TT, so that participants passing the course can basically jump right in. The experiences, prerequisites and recommendations for all logistical and marketing aspects of giving a workshop are also extremely valuable to have. For anyone interested in and committed to their own personal growth and expansion, I highly recommend any workshop or TT with Michaela and Steve.

They are professional and their knowledge and experience is like none other

Michaela and Steve are amazing. They are professional and their knowledge and experience is like none other. I feel more alive after each of their events, more in my body, more ready for the world. The epiphanies I have had during their workshops have rippled into, brought more awareness to, and improved all areas of my life. Therefore, to me, they offer essential and valuable life tools, practices and wisdom in their events. Their material is very accessible for everyone, at any stage of their practice with the material. Their teaching style is impeccable and allow for the participants to deepen their experience in a safe space. Whether the event is a couple of hours, a day or a week long, I get so much out of it for my personal growth. I HIGHLY recommend giving ANY of their workshops a try!

Simple yet profound

The Non-Linear Movement Method is such a deliciously simple yet profound practice & the opportunity to explore such deep embodiment in a space with other students is honestly priceless. Michaela & Steve share their teachings in such a non-dogmatic & empowered way – it’s refreshing, funny & I couldn’t recommend it highly enough.
