Experience how subtle, inward-focused, connected movements can help you self-correct physically, mentally, and spiritually — calming your nervous system, altering discomfort and distress, and fostering balance.
Have you heard the expression “we carry our issues in our tissues”?
It’s a clever way of saying that our body remembers everything — good or bad — that’s happened to us.
Throughout this pandemic, we’ve found ourselves shut in and disconnected — not only from the outside world, but even from ourselves. Many of us have internalized our feelings, just trying to get through the day as best as we can.
We’ve been holding on to accumulated stress, sadness, and anger, and it’s depleted our body, mind, and spirit from being whole, fully alive, and connected to everything that really matters.
Fortunately, through the felt experience of movement, we can open up and allow our body to be our greatest teacher, letting us self-regulate and bring ourselves back to optimal wellbeing.
In this FREE online workshop, you’ll delve into the medicinal power of embodied motion. Gayatri Schriefer and Brian Siddhartha Ingle, founders of Living Somatics, will share with you how to listen to what your body is telling you so you can develop a meditative mind and the freedom of movement that allows your whole being to settle down and manifest good health.
You’ll see how slow, conscious movement, while focusing on the internal experience, can help you draw on your body’s innate self-regulating and self-healing power to find balance, inner peace, and wellbeing.
During this hour-long event, Siddhartha and Gayatri will share how somatic movement is performed slowly, consciously, and with focused intent, so you can calm your nervous system and change learned sensory-motor patterns.
They’ll lead you in a movement practice and meditation, enabling your self-correcting capacity to activate. This awareness practice will draw from your midline and out to the periphery to include the bioelectric field, creating a secure and balanced interior foundation in which you can continue to build optimal health.
You’ll tap into a deep well of self-love and natural self-expression to wake up the fluid body (which includes all of the body’s fluids as a unified field) that enables your innate self-correcting mechanism — the force which grows in us in the womb and heals us throughout our lives.
In this free healing workshop, you’ll discover:
- The biodynamic concept of how it feels to have good health flow through you — and how you can return to that felt sense and use it as a resource
- Ways to embody and understand your ability to self-heal and self-correct, empowering you to regulate your own health and wellbeing
- How to shift from a fight, flight, or freeze response that makes you anxious, fearful, and insecure, into a state of rest, repair, and rejuvenation
- The core strategies and principles of somatic movement — and how focusing inward can calm and balance your nervous system
- How to connect the 7 energy centers to your own felt experience, allowing you to deeply connect to your way of being and living in the world
Gayatri Schriefer, program director of the Ingle Institute for Somatic Education, and Brian Siddharta Ingle, naturopath and doctor of osteopathic medicine, are the co-founders of Living Somatics, a worldwide training program that focuses on how key neuromuscular movements, when coupled with awareness, can increase your health and wellbeing and help you reach your full potential.
At the end of this powerful hour, you’ll also hear about Siddhartha and Gayatri’s new 7-week course where you’ll explore somatic movement as a spiritual practice, creating a process you can return to again and again to build inner alignment, spaciousness, and freedom so you can move in the world as your best self.

“... you will get access to valuable tools and principles that will improve your somatic awareness...”
Living Somatics offers an exceptional education in somatic movement. Gayatri and Siddhartha are highly professional and create a safe space for learning and exploring where everyone feels heard and seen. Whether you are doing the education to work in this field or if you are doing it for your own personal development, you will get access to valuable tools and principles that will improve your somatic awareness and your quality of life for years to come. Studying with them is the best decision I have made, and I cannot recommend them highly enough.

“I love that if my body is in pain, I no longer have to go to a practitioner for relief...”
I have suffered from lower back pain for most of my life, and as a result, I have studied fitness, yoga, and Pilates to alleviate the condition. While each of these has played a role in minimising discomfort, none have had the profound effect of Living Somatics. I love that if my body is in pain, I no longer have to go to a practitioner for relief (although that does feel good). I can instead explore the Living Somatics movement lessons. The work has had a profound impact on my life, and I highly recommend it to anyone who is willing to explore the subtlety of movement within their own body. Unlike many other modalities, this work is accessible to all bodies. I hope you enjoy your journey.
— Rachel Falconer, Living Somatic Movement teacher, yoga and Pilates instructor, Sydney, Australia
“They opened doors of embodied wisdom, honesty, and gentleness...”
I am very happy to be a part of the Living Somatics family since 2016. And even more happy that Gayatri and Siddhartha were my first guides in this world of freedom, self-exploration, and deep body knowledge. They opened doors of embodied wisdom, honesty, and gentleness, and they support and share their knowledge in a way that includes respect, trust, and loving kindness. For me their ability to accept, share, and improve is an example of the wisest way in a somatic field.

“Siddhartha and Gayatri’s deliveries are sensitive and touching in a way that is beyond intellectual comprehension.”
I am so thankful that I found Living Somatics trainings! As a yoga therapist I was looking for a somatic training as a complementary “tool” to help my clients to leverage the body-mind connection and to assist them in moving towards wellbeing. By serendipity I discovered, through a free workshop, the teaching of Siddhartha and Gayatri, which led me to what I was looking for: “There is a voice that doesn’t use words. Listen.” Now that I’ve enrolled with the online Living Somatics Movement Teacher Training (LSMTT), I can deeply recommend the program. It’s intense and very practical. We are a group of students from different countries learning within a very positive and open-minded group spirit. In addition, Siddhartha and Gayatri’s deliveries are sensitive and touching in a way that is beyond intellectual comprehension. I am so grateful!
