A practice rooted in Yoga, movement, poly-vagal theory, and trauma therapy, and informed by our body's natural intelligence
Inquiry Over Imposition
The Free Immersion Method™ is a collection of different applications brought together to offer a simple yet profoundly deep embodiment practice that is grounded in the relationship between the mind and the body.
Drawing upon ancient knowledge and decades worth of research in modern neuroscience through cellular and molecular biology, anatomy and physiology, and human behavior and cognition, this holistic practice opens a dialogue between the mind and the body, and has the very interesting effect of giving you present moment information about what's happening inside, showing you just how embodied the mind is.
The mind exists throughout the entire body.
This somatic practice helps to unravel and smooth out your nervous system, process and identify emotions, release trauma, and create a more intimate connection between the body and the mind.
The Free Immersion Method™ has helped people from all walks of life step into a more empowered and authentic version of themselves.
All are welcome.
what is the free immersion method?
The Free Immersion Method™ is a movement practice that combines several interconnected techniques to provide you with an effective strategy to integrate, release, restore, and facilitate a more meaningful experience of life.
Inspired by a meditative freediving practice of the same name, where you dive into the depths of the sea with only your breath as your lifeline, and developed through over 15 years of in-depth study in embodiment and the yogic arts, as well as meditation, psychology, change management, conscious living, and the Non-Linear Movement Method®, this practice was designed to be gentle, yet incredibly profound, utilizing a container that is brimming with wisdom, structure, clarity, safety, freedom, and trust.
It is highly effective as a stand alone practice or as an integrative practice to other healing modalities, such as asana (Yogic posture practice), pranayama (Yogic breathwork), meditation, embodiment practices such as dance and somatic movement, EMDR, talk therapy, and more.

is the free immersion method for me?
The Free Immersion Method™ is a guided, self-led movement practice, set to music, designed to increase awareness of your internal landscape. You get to choose your level of practice from moment to moment.
The method can be practiced at any age, fitness level and mobility. The movements are designed to be self regulating and can be done in any position, including laying down.
The only requirement is that you can hear my voice and instruction - as such, this practice is not currently accessible for those who may be hard-of-hearing.
The session is facilitated on a mat or blanket. Participants dress similar to a yoga class, in comfortable, non-restrictive clothing.
The Free Immersion Method™ is done in the comfort and safety of your own home, in your own space. This allows you extra privacy and ownership of your container.
