Introducing our brand new live online The Non-Linear Movement Method® Practitioner and Teacher Training!
NLMM® is a powerful somatic tool that has been developed by Michaela Boehm over the past 2 decades of instruction and practice and is now offered internationally.
The method is rooted in her early training in the Kashmiri Shakta tradition and fused with her extensive expertise in working with trauma, emotional closures, and physical contractions in her clients and students; as well as in implementing this technique in her own practice.
In recent years Steve James refined and clarified the method, added original material, and formatted it for educational delivery.
Our first live online training will offer new in-depth experiential engagement and enable you to teach a The Non-Linear Movement Method® class, either freestanding (like a yoga class) or as an adjunct to another modality.
While this program is designed as a teacher training, many participants have taken it as a means to deepen their own practice and understanding.
The course is designed to offer you an immersive experience in the comfort of your home. You will receive live instruction from Michaela and Steve, immersive class experiences in The Non-Linear Movement Method®, in-depth lectures, teaching scripts, and more.
The Embodiment training is taught as 4 live interactive online modules and offered in two streams to fit European, Australian and US time zones.
This training is by application only, please apply here.
You can choose whichever stream best fits your timezone and schedule – we will send you the information and links for BOTH of the streams automatically once you register.
Live sessions will not be recorded, you must be able to attend the live sessions to participate.
You are welcome to join the classes and lectures of both streams for extra practice and review.
1. Smooths out the nervous system
The demands of modern life create stress and tension in the body and an overactive mind. The NLMM encourages an identifying and unwinding of the patterns of contraction and through gentle, non-force movements relieves the bodily tension and underlying mental loops. The result is a systematic, self-guided unburdening of the nervous system.
2. Processes and identifies emotions
As the body unwinds and the mind relaxes its pressured pace the emotions associated with these patterns become apparent and are being let go of. You can note recurring emotional loops for further processing and at the same time allow emotions to simply rise and release.
3. Awakens sexual energy and sensual sensation
As tension, contraction, and emotion are being released the body becomes sensitized and we are able to feel deeper. One of the marked results of this sensitization is an ability to feel increased pleasure and well being. Participants report an increased ability to connect through their body, both with themselves and others.
4. Releases trauma patterns into flow
One of the results of traumatic experience (fresh and old alike) is “freeze”, a state in which body, mind and emotions are stuck in a state of numbness. Often “freeze” is falsely perceived as a feeling of “calm/nothing”, which results in an inability to release the experience and ease the bodily patterns. The NLMM facilitates a continued movement, which gently opens the freeze pattern and allows for recognition and release of the underlying bodily and emotional patterns.
5. Unites mind and body in intimacy with physical sensation
Through continued engagement with the release of contraction and facilitation of emotional awareness the ingrained patterns become apparent and less pronounced. Over time physical sensation can be engaged with and the acceptance and tolerance of all sensation increases. Intimacy with whatever is present is possible.
6. Creates high bodily responsiveness
NLMM educates the body how to release and process contractions, stress and emotional tension. The body becomes highly attuned to all sensations and can note, react or release fluidly and without having to attend to traumatic or suppressed backlog.
7. Opens access to bodily wisdom
By putting emphasis on movement and circumventing the analytical mind and loops of tense thinking the natural intelligence of our bodies is accessed. Through gentle guidance the mechanisms of “freeze” and refusal to feel are being loosened and bodily wisdom can create the necessary actions and releases.

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. 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. To me they offer essential and valuable life tools, practices and wisdom in their events.
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.
