“My recent experience of the Shin Somatics Module “Body Song” has left me filled with inspiration, deep experiences and juicy enquiries. Soul centre is the perfect location for the deep Somatic based work offered by Willa Monroe and Willa herself is a stunning and knowledgeable teacher. She conveys her vast experience and knowledge of the work with ease, humor and respect and holds space beautifully for the transformative practices she offers. This gentle and accessible introduction to the work of Sondra Fraleigh and EastWest Somatics (among others) offers a glimpse of the vast possibilities one can encounter when enquiring into yoga, movement and dance with a somatic approach. I can’t wait for my next module and the chance to go deeper still.

— Jessica Dziwulska, studio owner and yoga teacher

“It was a beautiful, meaningful and profound encountering to the Shin Somatics on the first day after my 37th birthday. I have never expected any trainings to be structured in such gentle, depth, multi-layer, and accommodating way. Ms Monroe inspires us by her whole being and shares her wisdom during this amazing 5-day module training. As a dance/movement therapy practitioner for many years, I have been looking for approaches that integrate Body-Mind-Spirit in deeper and more holistic levels, and searching for ways to connect with the communities and nature. I truly experienced the transformation and the new era of BEING in the time and space we shared together. I am looking forward to immersing myself into more Shin moments in life.
