Knowledge is only rumor until it lives in the body
Embodied learning is a unique, neuroscience-based approach that integrates mindfulness, action-oriented communication, martial arts, and generative conflict training to prepare leaders, coaches, and teams to meet today's biggest challenges.
For Leaders
You know you don't always show up the way you want to, especially when you're under pressure.
You want to be inspirational, manage conflict effectively, have a healthy work/life balance, and collaborate with colleagues in an enjoyable and productive way, but these things rarely happen. Until now. Embodied leaders lead from their values and consistently present with confidence and credibility when it counts most. With our methodology, leaders learn to stay centered under pressure, even in the midst of increased work pace.
Embodied Leadership Trainings
Our Embodied Leadership Trainings align your vision of who you want to be with daily practices to actually live your leadership everyday.
Get Started
For Coaches
You want your clients to succeed, but it takes a long time to build trust and get below the immediate challenges they face.
What if you could consistently focus your clients’ talents into purposeful action and create the capacity to produce even more valuable results? Somatic coaching moves the center of learning from the head into the body, giving you and your clients access to all aspects of your intelligence—intellectual, emotional, and physical. This unique approach prepares coaches to facilitate sustained, transformative change in their work with individual clients and leaders.
Somatic Coaching Certification
For transformation to occur, you must include a key component that most coaching omits: the wisdom of the body. Our coaches embody the somatic practices, distinctions, and presence required to offer paradigm-shifting work to clients.

For Teams
Where coordination and cohesion are critical for your team, you seem unable to keep the momentum going.
You are passive or aggressive with each other (or both), and, as a result, the best ideas can't get on the table. What if your team pivoted from reaction to purpose based leadership? Embodied the culture for the next phase of the company? Had an awareness of and the ability to work with the inevitable, automatic reactions and ineffective behaviors that happen under pressure? Saw things missing in projects before resources were deployed? Were using the same language and principles for clear communication? Were generative and resilient in conflict and navigated it in a way that built more alignment and trust?
Organizational Solutions
We partner with teams and companies to develop customized programs to solve the most common organizational and human capital challenges facing business today. Rather than one-off programs, we engage over time to assure that new frameworks and practices become a part of the way things work.

  • Hands down the best thing I have ever done for myself and my career.

    - Cary, Arizona

  • I'm truly amazed by how much I got from these four days. I feel so much more open, grounded, and ready. I love how oriented it was around action—feels different than other mind/body stuff I've done. Very practical.

    - Holly, New York

  • It encourages and almost expects people to get into a level of depth and openness and authenticity that I haven’t seen in other programs.

    - Jeff, New Jersey

  • I was able to witness everyone on my team accessing the best version of themselves. I was pushed to my developmental edge. I have been on an intense life changing developmental journey for 11 years but my time at Strozzi was the pinnacle.

    - Marvin, COO, EnPro Industries

  • Real deal if you want to transform your culture, your organization, or your team. This is something that makes a difference.

Embody Your Future
Insight and knowledge don’t often produce lasting change on their own. Why? Because learning takes place throughout your whole self. To make it stick, you need to use your whole neural network, not simply your mind and cognitive understanding. Embodied learning moves the locus of change and learning into the body, giving you access to all aspects of your intelligence—intellectual, emotional, and physical.

As you create new patterns and new neural pathways through embodied learning practices, you become able to listen more effectively, learn new skills quickly, and be more inclusive and generative in conflict situations. Not only do you start achieving the outcomes you want—as a leader, coach, or team—but you start experiencing life differently because you are living, feeling, and moving in new ways.

You become an embodied leader—able to align your actions with your vision and values to make lasting change.
