Somatic Movement membership

Welcome to our Somatic Movement membership! If you’re looking for ongoing classes and support as you practise this work, this is the place to be!

Membership gives you access to regular live classes, as well as to a range of recorded materials, such as recordings of the live, online classes, as well as recordings for when you need shorter practice sessions.

Before attending live classes (whether online or in person), you must have some experience of Somatic Movement (e.g. our beginner’s course, or a series of 1:1 sessions). I recommend starting with the recorded 4-week beginner’s course if you’re not already familiar with Somatic Movement, which is available via the membership, or as a standalone offering. Please do get in touch before joining the membership if you’re unsure.


Online classes: preferably a quiet space where you won’t be interrupted; room to lie on the floor (carpet or exercise mat) and spread arms and legs out if possible; Zoom (free download); ideally the ability to position the camera so I can see most or all of your body when you are lying on the floor (or at very least your torso) (optional, but recommended!); ability to get down to/up from the floor to do the practice (this can be using a chair etc for support if needed); ability to lie on your back (this could be propped with cushions if needs be; intention to create space to practise between sessions (optional, but highly recommended!).

In-person classes: ability to get down to/up from the floor to do the practice (this can be using a chair etc for support if needed); ability to lie on your back (this could be propped with cushions if needs be); intention to create space to practise between sessions (optional, but recommended!).

Please get in touch if you are unsure about any of these requirements.


More details

Live classes are 1.25-hour group sessions, practising Somatic Movement, and are suitable for those who have some Somatic Movement experience. Please get in touch if you’re unsure.

On booking, you will receive access to our membership portal, where you will be able to access all resources available to you as a member. Please note, if listening back to the recordings (i.e. not attending live), sessions will be around 60 minutes, as I won’t record sharing time at the beginnings/ends of the sessions.

Saturday morning sessions are a full session. Each Wednesday evening session is an abridged version of the preceding Saturday session, and I recommend experiencing the full session, either live or via recording, before attending the relevant Wednesday evening session!

Monday evening sessions are a full session, and are held in Finchampstead, Wokingham RG40. Please get in touch to find out more details.

If I’m running a beginner’s course in any given month, it might mean fewer drop-in sessions. For example, normally, you would get 2 Saturday morning live sessions in a month. If I hold two sessions of a beginner’s course on Saturday mornings in a given month, it’s likely that I will offer only one Saturday morning drop-in session that month. But since you’re welcome to attend the beginner’s course too, you won’t miss out!

If I have to cancel a session for some reason (e.g. illness), or if a session is not running because I am away, I invite you to (re)visit one of the available recordings, so that you can still ‘attend’ your regular session! This is to enable me to continue to run my business in a sustainable way, and I hope it will also meet your needs for a regular session.

You can of course cancel your subscription at any time.

I am a Somatic Movement Center® Certified Exercise Instructor (level 3) (through Sarah Warren’s Somatic Movement Center training), and a certified Essential Somatics Movement Teacher (through Martha Peterson’s Essential Somatics training).

Reflections from Somatics session attendees

“Thank you so much Emilie, I loved it! I never expected to feel so relaxed afterwards. I really enjoyed listening to your recording last night to practice. I’m loving how much concentration and focus it needs to I work out how to do the pandiculation. It’s enough to engage my mind so I’m not away with thinking/worrying and the combination of this and the deep connection with the body seem to allow my system to relax which is really rare. I’m excited to see the effect of the practice on pain and flexibility too.”

“This week I noticed a new internal sensation when I get angry (I feel a tight band of muscles constrict around my upper chest, under my arms). I was quite surprised to feel it! This is great because I can make a mental note to watch for that sensation as a trigger that it’s time to be more intentionally mindful and step away if needed.”

“Thank you Emilie, it’s just been a real revelation, and such a door opening on a whole new sort of physical, mental healing opportunity, so I’m so grateful, just thanks so so much, it’s been brilliant.”

“I’ve really enjoyed connecting with you all and I feel a lot of optimism about the power of CS [Clinical Somatics] to help with ongoing pain and also with my work around calming my nervous system! Thank you for your work in bringing this information to the world.”

“I think your descriptions are so clear - that’s what I’m impressed by, I don’t have to look at you or see what you’re doing, it’s so easy to follow you.”

“You have obviously put so much thought and effort into the course and it really paid off, I felt in very safe hands. I’ve learnt so much, in such a short space of time, but I never felt hurried. Thanks again, it was a great experience.”

“I’ve really noticed a difference, like just that Standing Awareness, and how I might use it in normal things I’m doing - I realise I am checking with my body more. And that’s one of the things I really wanted to get from this, that’s great - even if it’s just a small step forward it feels really positive.”

“I went into the course feeling hopeful. I trust Emilie’s opinion and value her expertise and experience. I wasn’t disappointed! Although life has gotten in the way of me really using the Clinical Somatics exercises regularly, I still felt a huge shift in various ways as a result of participating in the class. I probably only practiced 8 times in 6 weeks. Each time I felt centred, grounded and more connected in to my own feelings and experience. My awareness of my body has really developed. Particularly my awareness of my posture, which is slowly improving. I’ve also found that I’m more able to notice sensations that might be a hint for me to step back from hard situations right at that moment - which has been very helpful! Emilie is a great facilitator, very knowledgeable and trauma informed, with a real focus on participants honouring our own needs and experience. Thank you Emilie, I’m so glad I did the course and I look forward to getting a regular practice going soon and reaping the benefits :) "

“Thank you so much for these past 6 weeks or so. I found the classes to be exactly what I needed to make me stop and take the time to tune in to my body. The exercises seem simple yet there is so much to them and I appreciate the awareness I have been developing to the nuances of the way my body moves. It is like making friends with a stranger, a stranger I often perceive as scary… yet she’s not! I can feel the difference this is making to being able to connect with myself. It’s hard to put into words. You are an awesome instructor/facilitator. I always felt like no question was a stupid question and I felt really safe in your hands. I have been recommending you and will continue to do so. I feel like your classes are a beautiful entry point for parents who are disconnected from themselves and resistant to body awareness.

Love that you’re doing this!”
