Befriend your body in a way that only you can.

Hello Beating Heart,

Would you like to shift how you feel inside your body?


Befriend Your Body is for people who are tired of trying to improve their bodies and yet would appreciate knowing how to: turn down the volume on their pain, develop true self acceptance, calm the mental whirlwind, or let in a little more joy. Somatic self compassion coaching offers many tools to help you practice a non-judgemental attunement with your own body through gentle, expressive movement and sensation tracking.

Somatic self compassion coaching gives you a way to check-in with your body with consistency, creativity and compassion. It can help you grow your capacity to be with the more intense sensations that you experience. You will start to distinguish the different inputs that your brain is sorting through in any given moment while keeping your body grounded and in the ‘safety’ zone.


It’s different than trying to relax or ‘breathe your way through the tough moments’ in that you’re not trying to CHANGE your state by force, but rather, partnering with your body every step along the way. 

When you Befriend Your Body, you have:

  • Permission to slow down 

  • A strong inner compass so you're not swayed by others' expectations

  • Tools to help you regulate your nervous system when you need to and to activate it when it's time

  • Supportive strategies for chronic conditions or tough body transitions

  • Complete embodied friendship that helps you to feel listened to, nourished, and grounded

Bring your body back
into the conversation of healing

I can help you speak kindly to yourself in a language that will land deeply in your bones. I can help you get a body dialogue started where no one is to blame, and no one needs to be fixed.

There is no denying being human and having feelings is hard. It makes sense that we might ignore or try to avoid the bigger sensations we experience in our bodies when things get tough.


But when the body gets ignored, it doesn’t forget and reset; it will wait to talk with you until its voice is heard. And if that day doesn’t come, it turns up the volume until it is heard. It’s no wonder we feel disconnected or even on separate teams.  


But actually, your body is just doing the normal thing that bodies do. It’s been on your team this whole time, simply waiting for a way to re-connect. 


Don’t know where to start? That’s where I come in. I can help you to slow down and get reacquainted with your body.


Repair your most important relationship--with your body.

Caterina Snyder, Brand Anthropologist and Radical Visibility Coach for Dynamic Divergents

"Amy can help you speak your body's language and deepen your healing work. Prior to Amy, I'd worked with a wonderful life coach who first taught me to listen to my body as a best friend but to be honest, I wasn't sure what that looked like in my daily llife. Amy has the actual tools and methodology to dive into HOW to do that. I was beyond impressed and absolutely recommend Amy. It's incredibly powerful work they're doing and I'm so grateful that I got to experience it."

Meet Amy

Somatic Self Compassion Coach

I’m an intuitive listener, a creative collaborator, a truth-teller and skillful synthesizer. I blend my experience in somatics, rehabilitative exercise, trauma informed movement and expressive arts, to give you a unique experience that will help transform your relationship with your body.

I created this work because I saw the gap between exercise and therapy that needed to be filled where people could reacquaint themselves with their body in a more meaningful way. I am honoured to share my knowledge with you, as we walk along this path together.
