Move. Breathe. Connect.

Welcome to Joy Somatics, helping people unwind, de-stress and befriend their bodies for 12 years in St. Vital, Winnipeg, Canada. 

I help people who are struggling with chronic stress and tension, who seek more presence and calmness in their life. I guide individuals and groups to move mindfully, breathe freely, and ultimately feel better.    


I offer private somatic therapy & coaching (movement and breathwork) and weekly group somatic movement classes.


Please note, currently due to public health measures in Manitoba;

  • All group movement classes are on-line.

  • Private sessions are available both in-person and online (zoom)  with precautions to prevent spread. 

  • For more info, see Covid-19 Update

Freedom with every breath


Wanting a deeper dive? 

I guide people who are on a path of self-discovery and want to explore what's beneath the surface. With compassionate guidance, experience the release of stored stress, held stories and belief systems so you can get back to optimal breathing. 


Let your body speak


Needing to sooth your nervous system and find more  resiliency?

I help people with chronic stress, tension and overwhelm find the inner ease and improved relationship with their bodies they desire. 

Surprisingly simple, you will release tension efficiently and get back to suppleness and ease. 


Balance and harmony


Think you're too stiff and sore for yoga? Think again.

I lead movement classes for people with tension and stiffness who want the structure of yoga class with the permission to move intuitively and really enjoy their practice.
