Somatic Personal Resonance Practitioner Training
We are looking for interested professionals in both the talk therapy and movement/bodywork fields.
For talk-centered therapists: SPRe® can help you to understand your client’s somatic symptoms and how they may reflect a life pattern. In addition, SPRe® supports gaining greater access to the important information that your body provides you during a session.
For body-centered practitioners: Yoga; Gyrotonic; Rolfers; Pilates; LMT, PT; etc. You are already immersed in the relationship between a person’s history and their body. SPRe is an adjunct career that may help you broaden the scope of your work and increase your retention of clients.

SPRe® Training Overview
SPRe® Bodywork training is a unique personal and professional experience. The training is comprised of three or four-day intensives over the course of two school years and totals over 600 hours. These hours include 480 hours of theory and practice/classroom time, 50 hours of practice and at least 80 hours of individual SPRe® sessions. A training shall have a maximum of 12 participants. In addition to class time, there are readings, written homework assignments, practice sessions with clients and case consult time. At the completion of the two years, there is a comprehensive final exam and certification as a SPRe® Practitioner.
SPRe® training recognizes the body as both a time capsule and a constantly reporting system. Understanding how all the body systems function as an expression of a person’s life is part of the foundation of this work.
Somatic Personal Resonance training includes: How to see a person’s structure for its relationship with balance and movement and how the person’s history is represented from internalized organization to externalized presentation.
There is an emphasis on becoming aware of your own filter, meaning how your life experience affects how you see and understand the world and therefore, how you work with clients.
Although the curriculum and its educational requirements create the framework of the training, each person’s individual process is supported throughout as well as the group dynamic. The agreement is that everyone participates fully in their own process as well as maintaining the safety of the group process. The stamina to be fully present with clients is developed as participants cultivate their abilities as practitioners.
