Policies & Statements

We are committed to making our courses as available and accessible as possible

The Strozzi Institute scholarship program is a tuition reduction program. Availability is based on the number of applicants in each course pool and spots available for each individual course.

For our foundation course, Embodied Transformation, the highest award available is 50% with the average award being 25-30%.

For the Somatic Coach Certification program, the highest award is 30%.

The program is highly competitive, needs-based, and is focused on being the most effective. Therefore, it is prioritized in alignment with our organization commitment to equity to support traditionally marginalized communities with regard to race, sexual/gender identity, class, and socioeconomics.

Strozzi Institute for Somatics is committed to developing transformative leaders, coaches and organizations that can meet the challenges and hopes of our times — changing systems and shifting conditions towards a future where people and the planet thrive. To do this, we are dedicated to identifying and addressing the ways in which the systemic harms of unearned privilege, inequity, and oppression show up in our work and in our rooms. We understand this as a necessary, purposeful, and core aspect of our work at the Strozzi Institute for Somatics.

We come to this commitment with the embodied knowing that systems of oppression cost us — they cost us our safety, our dignity, our belonging, and our potential for interdependence and community. An embodied approach to change that is grounded in a commitment to justice, sustainability and equity allows us to unlearn what is oppressive, liberate the creativity and engagement of all people, and build the seeing and actionable skills to work together towards justice, sustainability and equity. If we are to truly feel ourselves, each other, and the planet, we must enter into the work of dismantling the systems of oppression that stand in the way of us meeting each other from our honest, authentic, and full humanity. 

In order to do this, we hold active and embodied exploration of our sites of shaping (, family, community, race, class, gender,, education, religion, spirit, landscape) as an inextricable part of our methodology. We are committed to the intentional, recurrent, and iterative weaving of the sites of shaping into our courses and programs and to working with sites of shaping generatively in the specific ways they show up in our rooms. 

We are committed to the on-going work of directly  interrupting and addressing harm while holding the safety, dignity, and belonging of our course and program participants. We are committed to facilitating rooms in which participants who are members of traditionally and systemically marginalized communities with regard to race, ethnicity, sexual/gender identity, class, and socioeconomic class remain in choice about how they engage with and bring their experiences  forward. 

As an ICF Accredited provider, Strozzi Institute for Somatics (SI) adheres to and emphasizes the International Coaching Federation Code of Ethics. The ICF Code of Ethics describes the ICF core values, ethical principles, and standards of behavior for all ICF professionals. Meeting these ethical standards of behavior is the first of the ICF core coaching competencies. You can read more about the ICF Code of Ethics here

Additionally, the SI commits to acting with integrity and transparency. We hold ourselves and our participants to the highest level of integrity and strive to be as transparent as possible by explicitly stating measures being taken to provide programs in an ethical manner. We do not believe in using manipulative or dishonest sales tactics and strive to provide a safe and ethical sales process. 

Further, we work to provide fair and equitable pricing for all programs to ensure access and quality of coaching education.

Strozzi Institute for Somatics does not unlawfully discriminate internally (in its administrative and program operations) or externally (in provision of services) on the basis of race, political orientation, religion, gender, sexual orientation, age, national origin, ethnicity, ancestry, marital status, veteran status, or mental or physical disability or any other status prohibited by applicable law.

Strozzi Institute is committed to providing reasonable accommodations for individuals with disabilities to access our courses and program in compliance with all local, state/territory, and federal laws. Our goal is to create a learning environment which meets the needs of each individual student. We will do our best to accommodate a variety of learning abilities to make our program more accessible.
