Move. Breathe. Connect.

Joy Somatics

Welcome to Joy Somatics.  Leading individuals and groups to wellness since 2009

I help adults experiencing overwhelm after chronic stress and trauma regulate and repattern their nervous systems so they can be present and reconnect with the joy in their lives. 

Somatics means to perceive the body from within, and somatic practices help us become aware what's going on from a felt sense. 

I offer, trauma informed, body-based practices that;

  • Improve embodied self-awareness (formally known as interoception), which is becoming well known as the 'missing link' in recovery from chronic pain, stress, trauma, and addiction.

  • Reduce pain and stiffness 

  • Acknowledge, process and release stored stress

  • Increase nervous system literacy, self-regulation and resilience

  • Increase self-compassion and personal agency 

  • Improve presence and joy.

  • Contribute to improved overall health and sense of wholeness.

Ways to work with me

  • Customized 1:1 sessions in-person (Winnipeg and Manitou, MB)

  • My services are also available online

  • After an intro somatic session, options include single follow-ups, Conscious Connected Breathwork Journeys (3-session packages are available)

  • A 10-week Nervous System RESET is available for those needing more support.

  • I co-host intimate and unique in-person breathwork events and retreats.

About Joy

As a trauma-informed Somatic Pracitioner, I  help people get out of their heads and into their bodies so they can release old patterns, explore new possibilities and be more present for their lives.  

I offer a variety of client-centered, body-based practices including gentle movement, somatic inquiry, conscious connected breathwork and nervous system literacy. 


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


Learn to listen to your body's needs with guidance and support. Acknowledge and release chronic stress, tension and overwhelm from your body while you repattern your nervous system. Find inner ease, calm focus, and more kindness towards yourself and your body.
