And maybe you feel unsure of where you’re heading or how to show up differently. Can you feel the flutter of possibilities, a pulsing inside you for renewal? Do you find yourself wondering how to become more involved, connected, and present in response to the challenges of our current times?

Inspiration, creativity, and intuitive knowledge are seeded within you. However - stress, fear, and doubt can flood us to stay small and default into reactionary patterns, habits, and beliefs. These automatic tendencies keep us from growing, thriving, and experiencing the world in a new way.

 

At Solana Soul Center, we engage in practices that connect us with our somatic, imaginative, sensory, emotional, & ecological intelligences to access what we deeply care about. This creates new ways to notice triggers, habitual patterns, reactions, & stories. With awareness & practice, you can transform these habitual reactions into creative responses that align with your values and highest vision of yourself.

What habits are you practicing right now?

…and are they aligned with your intentions?

Do you sense that you're being called to grow...

Our Approach

 Offerings are grounded in Trauma-Informed Somatics, Psychology, Conscious Leadership, & Wisdom Traditions

Group Dance

Somatically Sensing

Somatics is the art of attuning to our bodies, listening, and letting our bodily wisdom guide us. Bring back the capacities to feel and sense. Work with postures, mannerisms, & conditioned tendencies to change how you show up in the world.

Meet Alexis

Founder of Solana Soul Center
Somatic Coach,
Embodied Leadership Facilitator

I am a woman in the world led by spirit & inner guidance. My heart is stirred by sacred song, self-care, mothering, the natural world, community, & body-based wisdom. I am passionate to help people connect with their own inner wisdom, work holistically with their shadows, & step into their full potential ~ showing up as soulful beings in action, contributing to our evolutionary shift in consciousness. My unique background as a somatic coach, mother, tech leader, and a person with invisible disabilities allows me to weave my work across settings - from corporate leadership to intimate healing - affecting change where it is longed for and most needed. I am deeply authentic, present, & always in my own process of transformation and growth.

I am open, supportive, kind, and I like to laugh, listen, & share. I am truly present to meet you where you are at. I see you as your own wise sage. I am not here to fix you; I am here to be with you, honor you, & support you in opening your creativity, developing your resilience, discovering your multidimensional wisdom, and living into new ways of being. I include many embodied practices, such as art, nature, song, movement, guided imagery, play & mindfulness, as these are medicines for our soul.

I am committed to cultivating personal, community, and ecological transformation. My intention with Solana Soul Center is to create spaces where we can come together with our whole-selves, learn together, practice together, and engender new possibilities together. The workshops weave scientific knowledge, embodied practices, group psychology, conscious leadership and eco-oriented wisdom traditions to create new pathways for thriving as we all navigate this complex time of being human.
