Violet Reynolds


Violet's journey of personal awareness started 30 years ago including meditation and yoga. She was introduced to Somatics in 1994 in her first year of training to become a Registered Massage Therapist. Through her experience she realized how effective Somatics was for relaxing the nervous system, releasing tension, decreasing muscle tension and pain and eliminating headache frequency. Her formal exploration and education in Clinical Somatics and Somatic Movement began in 2004 with Applied Somatics and concluded in 2010. Since 2009 she has been teaching weekly classes in Somatics and Somatic Yoga at Duncan Wellness Centre. In 2013 she began working as a teacher’s assistant at Clinical Applied Somatics trainings and co-created the Somatic Yoga training offered by Applied Somatics Institute. At Red Door Yoga in Nanaimo she attended the Yoga Fitness Leader, RDYT200 hr and RDYT 500hr, completing the training in 2013. She is passionate about helping students and practitioners learn Somatic education, theory and techniques so they can support their clients in their healing journey. Our 'Soma' is our body experienced from within - 'when I withdraw the senses and experience from within, I experience a profoundly deep relaxation and sense of peace.'
