If you or your clients are dysregulated (aka: out-of-whack) in the nervous system, these are common things you will tend to see:
anxious and overwhelming thoughts, trouble focusing, a mind that runs a million miles a minute, irrational fears, brain fog and trouble concentrating, resistance and procrastination.
chronic depression and sadness, numbed out and disconnected, uncontrollable anger and rage, fearful and overreacting to the little things, trouble being empathetic and understanding.
chronic fatigue and pain, trouble sleeping or staying asleep (or the opposite: needing A LOT of sleep but never feeling rested), weakened immune system and autoimmune disorders, gut troubles, migraine headaches, severe PMS, chronic muscle tension.
SmartBody SmartMind™ weaves together learning and practices from multiple revolutionary approaches - Somatic Practice (the work of Kathy Kain), Somatic Experiencing (the work of Peter Levine), neurosequential healing (as written about by Norman Doidge), The Polyvagal Theory as presented and discovered by Stephen Porges, and Feldenkraisian Learning (the work of Moshe Feldenkrais).
Each module (or "lab," as we like to call them) gives you a blend of education and practical exercises. Video trainings, readings, plus our signature audio 'neurosensory' exercises make up each module and will start you off on your nervous system apprenticeship.
Consider these calls your 'lecture' for the week! During these live training calls you'll be introduced to new nervous system concepts and fundamental theory for healing trauma and restoring regulation back to your nervous system.
All calls are recorded and put in the member area within 24-48 hours following the live call. So, even if you can't attend every call live, you'll still be able to tune in and benefit from the information shared.
With any new learning we always expect some healthy confusion and, we hope, a lot of curiosity. During ten out of the twelve weeks that SmartBody SmartMind™ (SBSM) is in session there are numerous opportunities to participate in open Office Hours where we answer your questions via video conferencing (we use Zoom) and also via our private SBSM Facebook Group. These calls are for you to ask specific questions around your own personal progress and the program content.
A note about the program content and pacing: this work is meant to be done slowly and over a long period of time, which is why everyone who joins becomes an alumni and receives lifetime access as long as the program runs.
I'm a huge believer in the power of community.
In the Facebook group, you're able to connect with other SmartBody SmartMind™ participants, people who are making the same journey as you.
My colleague and co-teacher Elia Mrak will be providing a handful of live movement lessons throughout the 12 week session to help spark up connections between yourself and the space around you. These live lessons will be experiential and will involve movements that all bodies and abilities can do.

Unorthodox Healing Blueprint
Most people try to jump into healing at an advanced level without first doing the foundational work.
I mean, imagine trying to paint a house or put furniture in it before a blueprint has been created or the foundation has been laid. Impossible, right? Healing trauma and restoring health back to the human body is NO different.
We must start with the 'blueprint' first, that is what gives us the foundation.
34 Neurosensory Exercises
These practical audio exercises tap into multiple layers of the body, brain and nervous system, while reconnecting you with the space around you (the environment). They have been crafted and recorded by Irene Lyon and they blend her expertise in the somatic healing arts of Somatic Experiencing, Somatic Practice and Feldenkraisian learning.
The end result is an enhanced level of self-awareness and an embodied way of being with your stress physiology that will put you back in the driver's seat of your body, mind, health, and life.
The Biology of Stress Video Training Series
In order to truly transform the way your body handles stress, you need to understand how stress works.
This signature video training series contains five master class trainings that have completely revolutionized people's lives.
This 5-part video series will give you answers (and most importantly, hope!) by providing a solid biological explanation for a lot of the pain and angst that plagues so much of society today.
We want to ensure that you know *exactly* what you are getting when you join SmartBody SmartMind™, plus how the program content is structured. Right here I'm sharing a video that is within our official program site that helps participants see the bigger picture of our time together.
This video outlines how the ten program modules (we call them "labs") are spread out over the course of the program. I also review some of the main principles of neuroplastic healing and how the SmartBody SmartMind™ program content sets the conditions so this healing (and learning!) can take place.
Are you ready to:
If your answer is YES, then you’re invited to join me for…
A revolutionary online training designed to teach YOU how to tap into the power and potential of your nervous system in profound ways.
“There has been a direct positive effect on my parenting of my 4 year old and in my body awareness, allowing me to return to running, my empathy towards others, which indirectly helps decrease sources of anger."
"I dove into this work out of desperation to heal chronic ailments that were getting really out of hand, and it changed my whole outlook on the world. I have had big releases in my body that were stored for ages."
“If I hadn’t found this work, my life would have probably taken a very different turn. And I would have spent a lot more time and money.”
"Nothing really worked to shift my lifelong anxiety and depression, despite years and years of trying MANY things. I’m seeing changes after just one time through SmartBody SmartMind.
Between tuition, travel, books, certifications and more, I’ve spent well over $100,000 learning this material (more, if you also include my two university degrees).
And I have definitely exceeded well over 10,000 hours of face-to-face work with clients. But you don’t have to spend that kind of time or money.
I believe this work is so important – not just on an individual level, but also on the level of fostering real transformation in the world – that I decided to create this program so that this work can be more accessible to all.
Rather than you having to sift through all the reading, research, books, and attending training sessions, I’m giving you what I’ve found to be the most essential, critical pieces a person needs to know for healing their nervous system.
Plus, not only are you getting education, and a lifestyle change, but you’re getting a whole new global community of caring people who are empathetic and interested in the next level of healing. (I’ve found out that members have formed true, meaningful friendships where they continue to support each other outside of the program.)
