Two New Modules. Two New Embodied Learning Journeys

We're thrilled to introduce two brand new modules to the Accredited Certificate in Body-oriented Coaching.

Each weekend contains two of the new "meta-competencies" in the Body-oriented Coaching Model. Breath, Voice, Contact and Play. Each has potential to be ever present in our sessions and permeate every other body-oriented coaching skill along the cycle, from Presence to Integration.

As graduates of the Accredited Certificate in Body-oriented Coaching, you have luxury of benefiting from the Alumni Discount on all further training at The Somatic School. This includes a limited time offer when you book both courses together.

Breath & Voice

Chocolate Studios, London
4th & 5th April 2020

Both breath and voice are ever present in every conversation, yet we tend to hear in one dimension. This module helps coaches fine tune their listening.

 

The breath literally gives life and opens up our sensing selves. Conversely certain breathing patterns, such as holding one’s breath, is an effective strategy for feeling less.

 

This module helps coaches attune to the breath-scape of their clients and use their own breath to maintain presence.

 

In the same way the voice can bring us closer or further from ourselves. Our voice conveys a “you-ness”, but whether this “you” is honest and integral is subject to whether or not it is embodied. This module helps coaches hear and feel the difference.

 

  • Learn how to track the breath and model breathing patterns

  • Learn about the inhale, exhale, pacing and rhythm and what they indicate

  • Discover the impact of your breath on others

  • Sharpen your discernment between content and tone

  • Learn how vocal tone reveals emotional state in coaching

  • Connect every spoken word to the viscera with Embodied Speaking

Course Trainer
Cordelia Zafiropulo

Cordelia is passionate about helping people become more fully embodied though developing untapped vocal potential. “The body is the voice; it is a crucial tool for self-actualisation”.

Initially Cordelia trained in the performing arts, in opera. Her intense vocal studies took her abroad for many years where she learnt specific techniques of singing. The understanding of the functional mechanisms of the voice and the immersion into the physical and psychological aspects of the voice, ignited her passion for self-development, presence, metaphysics, breathing techniques as well as somatic therapies.

Contact & Play

Chocolate Studios, London
30th & 31st May 2020

Our communities are touch deprived, so much so that receiving touch can be profound and transformative.

 

Physical contact in the coaching space is a grey area for most. This module equips coaches with the awareness and skillset needed to work with intentional contact in a way that is safe, supportive and in service of their clients.

 

Where working with the body often invites a slowing down and tuning in, this module will also help both coach and client find greater agency with levity and humour. Research suggests that under conditions of Play, new behaviours require less repetitions to embody than without.

 

Many of us have become rigid in the face of uncertainty. The whole invitation of play as a resource for coaches working somatically is that play opens up the possibility of it being an adventure, of being curious, of not-knowing, and to be with uncertainty with a quality of attention that is creative.

 

  • Use touch to give clients instant non-verbal feedback about what they’re doing and how they are being

  • Understand the generative application of “non-doing” touch in a coaching session

  • Learn to navigate one nervous system coming into contact with another

  • Explore the neurobiology of play to marry rigour with parasympathetic renewal

  • Draw on improvisation principles to enhance your coaching skills and let go of having to “get it right”

  • Find flow in the dance between knowing and not knowing
