Hi, my Sweet Awakened One

I know you, and I see you.

You are the one who feels so deeply and fully, sometimes it feels like you just don’t quite fit in with the “rest” of the world.

You love so wholeheartedly, but as a result, sometimes take on the burdens of your loved ones, and carry them on your shoulders as if they were your own.

You’ve been told or have felt that your emotions and needs are “too much”, that you are too much

You’ve been taught to numb your sensuality and pleasure, so you’ve stopped feeding your sacred erotic fire, allowing it to slowly burn out

You crave to sing and dance, to make your life a living art, yet have been conditioned to stay silent, to stay small, to dim your light. How dare you be FULL of your Self?

You feel so much that is begging to be expressed, yet you can’t help but swallow all your feelings down and bottle everything up

Your Soul knows there is a greater power and truth waiting for you around the corner, and you’re ready to find it

The call towards liberation is pulsing in your bloodstream, but stifled beneath the pressure to “fit in”.

 

Your heart asks to sing a different song, a new song.

Harmonize Your Nervous System. Awaken Soul Power. Become a Somatic Yoga Therapy® Practitioner.

 

This training is for you, if you're called to…

✨Alchemize your sensitivity from a curse into a superpower

✨Process undigested blockages that are keeping you small, silent, and stuck in the past

✨Tune out the noise and be guided by the sensual wisdom of your body

✨Cleanse your emotional waters into the vital, life-giving streams of Love

✨Release chronic holding patterns full of tension and pain

✨Liberate your voice! Express yourself!

✨Hold the torch of sacred light as you teach, guide, and illuminate the way for the people you are destined to serve

It all begins with your Sacred Body.

Your body’s wisdom is the cauldron where the process of somatic healing takes place. Your sensations, emotions, and intuition are your Sacred Guides.

This is a journey into the Feminine Path where you’ll be guided “down and in” to build deeper intimacy and trust with yourself, creating an inner radiance even more luminous than the full moon.

You’ll be guided to release all that no longer serves your highest good – all the blockages, patterns, and residues trapped in your Nervous System that keep you at arm’s length from your deepest desires for your health, love life, relationships, and career.

Welcome to Somatic Alchemy Training, a sacred initiation to become the Healer you were born to be.

What is Somatic Yoga Therapy?!

The primary goal of Somatic Yoga Therapy® is to restore your connection to the safety and intuition that resides within your body, through gentle movement, awareness, and mindfulness practices that support rewiring the neural networks that keep you in a traumatized state. Once a foundation of inner safety and intuition are established, we can move forward into the realm of trauma integration and “Soul Retrieval.”

Somatic Yoga Therapy® is an individualized healing process that encourages you to drop into a deep connection to the intuitive wisdom within your own body.

From this wisdom connection, organic impulses for healing naturally arise. These impulses are supported by a myriad of tools and resources from the yoga tradition (such as movement, sound healing, energy work, or breathwork) that encourage a full discharge of energy.

As this energetic release begins, more Soul Power (a.k.a. Self-energy, “Youness”, shakti, or aliveness) is able to take root in the body. This act of “Soul Retrieval” supports the deepest, most sustained healing possible, and supports you in embodying your fullest self-expression in life, love, health, and beyond.

There are 4 foundational pillars in the
Somatic Yoga Therapy® process:

Rescue

Gently guide your body back to a sense of safety and presence. Learn how to cultivate groundedness, security, compassion, and be at ease in your own skin.

Replenish

Nourish your mind, body and Soul by learning to be sweet, slow, and soft with yourself. You’ve gone through a LOT. Now is the time to rest and replenish so you can have more inner and outer space to heal.

Release

Integrate past pain bodies so you can fully embody the shiny, bright human you were born to be. Let go and release the past, one breath and sensation at a time.

Reclaim

Retrieve what has been lost, such as your sexuality, your power and purpose, your joy and will to live a deliciously embodied life. These “lost” gifts are deeply connected to your our Soul Essence and its ability to come home to your body for you to feel more and more YOU.

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

Here’s a glimpse of what you’ll learn in the Somatic Alchemy Training:

Somatic Alchemy Training blends the art of somatics, yoga and embodiment practices, Ayurvedic Medicine, energy work, sound healing, breathwork, and shamanism.

Your body holds onto all the life experiences that were too much, too fast, too soon for you to integrate.

These holding patterns later manifest as mental, physical, emotional, relational, and spiritual health imbalances.

These experiences stay in the body until they are processed and metabolized.

The Somatic Alchemy Training is an intuitive journey, and we honor the pace that your body wants to set for healing.

We allow the wisdom of the body to guide our work together so that your wise, intelligent body has all it needs for healing.

This training is your container and guide to embodying and reclaiming your natural state of integration and health.

Safety, ease & love are our guiding forces for your organic healing.

Somatic Yoga Therapy® supports you in accessing your inner wisdom rather than an external authority prescribing yoga postures or meditations. In Somatic Yoga Therapy®, your sensations become your guides to unlock access to your inner blueprint for healing. We trust the wisdom of the Soma and the nectar of the body to lead us on the healing journey from the inside out (rather than outside in). It is a practice rooted in Sahaja, spontaneous and intuitive movement toward healing and wholeness that can only be accessed inside your own self.

Immerse in paradise for a week to embody the somatic alchemy practices in community, deepen your Somatic Yoga Therapy® skills, and connect deeper with your Sovereign Self.

This retreat is REQUIRED for certification, but optional for students who want to go through the program without certification.

Who this is for...

The Somatic Alchemy Training is for healers and awakened women longing to guide their professional and personal practices to a deeper and more fulfilling place.

It is for you if you…

Are ready and willing to dive into the deep, sometimes scary waters of their emotions and body and to fully integrate what is keeping you stuck.

Are ready to awaken your internal power, ownership, and self responsibility.

Don’t fit in with traditional schooling or the popular culture, and feel a call to pave a new way and create community full of depth, authenticity, and belonging.

Have lived through traumatic experiences and done years of therapy, yet still feel unresolved and stuck in a loop

Teach and practice yoga or other embodied healing arts, yet feel there is something “missing” in your practice

This is not for you if...

This program is not for those who…

Are looking for a quick fix and want to feel better without doing the required work

Are working with severe active trauma

Do not have the time and energy for an immersive and deep program, designed to deeply transform all aspects of life

Are not ready or willing to change

Are not ready or willing to take ownership for their own emotional experience and life, and take the necessary and sometimes hard steps into more power

Want a traditional yoga training focused on asana and group classes

Are not ready to confront, hold, and nourish any pain bodies that lives within themselves and others

Are looking for a prescriptive and linear method of healing, rather than an organic and intuitive process

Prerequisites:

✔ Yoga teacher training certification or experience (encouraged)

✔ Experience and commitment to your own healing work
At least one year of consistent yoga/dance/meditation/spiritual practice

✔ Some experience in leading group or one-to-one fitness, healing, coaching, or counseling work

Somatic Alchemy Training is…

A space where soulful and the somatic meet

An incubator for deep yogic wisdom to come to anchor in your living, breathing body

An initiation into more power, pleasure, and purpose than you’ve ever experienced

And, an experiential Love Lab for your deepest transformation

In short, Somatic Alchemy Training is an investment in life-changing tools you’ll use in your personal and professional life.

The biggest personal shift for me since doing Somatic Alchemy Training has been that I am now honoring my intuition. I am able to distinguish between “what is mine” and “what is not”.

Additionally, I have increased my compassion and empathy to an even deeper level and am able to hold a safe, nonjudgmental space for others. I have digested the information for the therapeutic yoga tools and feel like they are now easily accessible for myself and for me to share with others. I have a deeper understanding of how multi-cultural explanations of the energetic system overlap.

I am able to bridge Western and Eastern medicine to best help others with their specific, individual needs to support them in their healing process. I have embraced change, set and held personal boundaries, and improved my ability to approach communication from a compassionate, open, curious space.

My biggest realization has been that suppressing my innate, intuitive knowledge has not served me in life. Tapping into my intuition has been a magical experience opening a Pandora’s box of knowledge I already had that I didn’t know I already possessed.

Over the duration of the course, spots in my body that hold tension and pain have let go of some of their charge. If they flare up, I am able to bring acceptance to them and use tools to help bring comfort and support. My body is also able to shift from apical breathing to a deeper, calmer breath more easily. My body feels a deep, calm peace more often.

My heart is more open and able to radiate love, compassion and kindness. It knows when it starts to close off in self protection and explores ways to support itself in order to shine its light brightly.

My energy has gone through many cycles during this course. Each time it felt blocked, I was able to release stuck negative energy and energy that wasn’t mine, which facilitated change and a return to a high vibration energy.

My all time favorite part of the training has been connecting with a tribe of beautiful, powerful, knowledgeable women who honor, support, and celebrate everyone’s authentic self.

I would absolutely recommend this training to a friend! This course will bring about change in your life, will help you deepen your relationship with yourself and others, and will enhance your understanding of the gift that is yoga and somatic work. It will shift you into a space of deeper connection with yourself, other humans, nature, and all beings. It will help you overcome blockages to open up pathways that you may have not thought possible or even expected.

Hi, I’m Kaity

Thank you for your curiosity about the Somatic Alchemy Training.

I know you’ve landed on this webpage for a reason. There is a voice inside you longing for a soulful sanctuary to support you and the humans you’re destined to serve in thriving beyond recovery, into full reclamation of Soul Power.

As a survivor of sexual trauma, I understand the shadow realm of trauma through my own hands on experience. I’ve also held space for hundreds of individuals to heal and recover in my work as a Somatic Yoga Therapist.

I firmly believe that you are your own healer. Somatic Alchemy Training is here to offer you tools, support, guidance, and space for alchemizing blockages into your greatest gifts and super powers. 

If you feel blocked in loving yourself deeply, feel stuck around manifesting your dreams into reality, want to have better sex and relationships, want to feel more passionately alive, and want to stop feeling small and powerless in your life, THEN this is the space for you.

F.A.Q

u

Do I have to join all of the modules?

Yes, when you sign up you are committing to all 12 modules (8 initiations and 4 mentorships). It is required for certification, and creates a cohesive, committed community of students (which is arguably one of the best parts of Somatic Alchemy Training!)

In addition, all modules must be taken in order, because each module builds on the previous modules content. For example, you can’t take module 4 without taking 1-3 before hand.

Should you join for some of the modules and decide to pause your training until the following year, we cannot guarantee the program formatting or module structure will remain the same.

u

How much homework is there between modules?

We prefer to use the term SoulWork, as opposed to homework 😉 There will be monthly reading assignments, guided practices, reflection exercises, pre-recorded lectures, and “LoveLab” practice hours that are required between modules. There may also be an occasional live zoom call with a special topic or guest speaker.

It amounts to 5-10 hours of course work per week.

u

What is required for certification?

You’ll be required to complete all of the training modules, in addition to 50 Practicum Hours during mentorship. The Practicum begins at the end of the retreat and will be supported by additional supervision and mentorship, included in your training costs.

u

What is included in the Integrative Practicum & Mentorship?

The practicum is the portion of the training where you’re invited to INTEGRATE all of the many skills you’ve learned and embodied through offering 1×1 SYT® sessions with real-life clients. There are 50 practicum hours required for certification.

These hours are supported by group mentorship calls where you’ll be supported in continuing to refine your SYT® skills, develop your business to acquire clients, and heal through the initiation of true embodied leadership. Think of this part of the program as the bridge that takes eases you from our immersive training container into your role as a healer out in the world.

The practicum is SELF-PACED (you’ll have up to a year after the program to complete it), and the mentorship calls will occur once per month after your final initiation, for 4 months.

u

How much of the course is online?

There are 6 live-online modules (Fridays from 2-5p MST, Sat/Sun from 10a-5p MST), in additional to pre-recorded educational content. There are two in-person intensives/retreats: one week-long embodiment retreat in Mexico and one 4-day intensive in Colorado.

The live-online classes are spacious and experiential to prevent zoom fatigue AND to give you the deepest learning experience possible. Breaks, pacing, and self care are very important parts of this professional training.

Our online classes are are often not simply lectures, but engaging and healing containers for you to practice methods and apply new knowledge for your highest growth and evolution.

u

I can't make the live classes and calls. Can I still participate?

It is really important to prioritize being at the classes live, and if you’d like to be certified you will be required to attend at least 50% of all live-online initiations, 100% of the mentorship calls, and 100% of in-person retreats/intensive. There will be practices and break-out groups that truly need to be experienced LIVE to make an impact.

Please get in touch if you’d like to join but aren’t sure you’ll be able to make the live classes. Our contact information is at the bottom of this page.

u

How much does the embodiment retreat cost?

The retreat will be an additional $135-$450 per night depending on the accommodations of your choice.

It will be located at Xinalani Retreat Center.

u

Is the embodiment retreat required?

The embodiment retreat is required for certification. However, if you would like to take our online modules and not attend the retreat or intensives, that is okay. You simply will not be certified at the end of the program.

u

Are practicum and mentorship required?

Practicum and mentorship are required for certification. However, if you would like to audit the course and not participate in practicum and mentorship, that is an option. You simply will not be certified at the end of the program.

u

Will we be doing a lot of yoga?

We talk about Yoga a little differently here at Her Temple. To us, yoga means “the art of integration” and consists of all of the practices that lead you to a more aligned and whole self. In that sense, we will not be doing yoga as you may practice at your local yoga studio. There will not be an emphasis on asana, nor your standard outward-in alignment cueing.

Instead, we focus on cultivating an “inner yoga” that helps you to awaken the wisdom of “soma” (your inner body). This comprises of somatic movements (which may feel similar to a slow, gentle, and restorative yoga class) as well as sensual and sensational meditative practices designed to deepen your relationship with the felt-sense, inner guidance, intuitive movement patterns, and wise knowing that lives inside your body.

u

Can people outside of the program attend the retreat?

We are reserving spaces at the retreat for training students only as of now. Should we have remaining spaces come September, we’ll be considering opening up the group to outside participants! There are only 16 spaces available for the retreat.

The retreat is an additional expense for travel and lodging – see above.

u

Upon completion of the training, what will I be certified in?

So long as you adequately complete all of the class hours and assignments, you will be a Certified Somatic Yoga Therapy® Practitioner.

u

I don't have my 200 hour yoga teacher training. Can I still join?

Yes. While we encourage participants to have their 200 training before joining the program, it is not required. The 200 hour training provides you with a strong foundation that this more advanced course can build upon. 

That being said, as long as you have a basic background with yoga (philosophically as well as physically), the healing arts, psychology, and/or teaching movement/meditation in a professional setting we will consider you in our enrollment process.

Kaity offers a 200-Hour Somatic Yoga Teacher Training that is very complimentary to this course. If you are interested in getting certified before, during, or after your Somatic Alchemy Training, you can email us to be added to the next training waitlist.

u

What is your cancellation policy?

All deposits are non-refundable. Should you need to cancel 90 days before the training begins, you’ll receive a full refund minus your deposit. From 60-90 days prior to the training, you’ll receive a 50% refund. No refunds are provided within two months of the training start date.

For payment plans, you are committing to 100% of payments regardless of whether you choose to complete to entire program or not. Payment plans cannot be discontinued.

I decided to join the Somatic Alchemy Training after experiencing a Somatic Yoga Therapy® session with Kaity, because it felt like one of the most profound healing sessions I had ever had. It felt unique and special and truly like my body was leading and everything that was coming up made sense, rather than being filtered through the eyes of a healer speaking my experience to me.

When the training first began, I was doing a lot of internal work, especially ancestral work that was POWERFUL, but it was very heavy and I didn’t have a lot of lightness and joy in my life. I felt very stuck, heavy, confused, and unclear. I felt like I was working so hard but not moving at all.

Now, I FEEL in my body more, I understand the language of my body and know how to listen and translate it into language. I know how to follow sensation and that helps me in all aspects of life because it helps me trust my body and its signals. I feel much more open and accepting of all of my emotions and beliefs, even the heavy ones. I feel more compassionate towards myself.

I feel more confident and fierce. I’ve embodied my jaguar queen energy more deeply. I know myself more. I also feel like I am a better listener and am more confident working 1-to-1 with people. I understand the nervous system and foundational principles of yoga more.

My favorite part of the training has been THE PEOPLE and community. I also loved how each module is a different theme, that there were in-person modules as well, a retreat in Mexico, the Somatic Yoga Therapy® demo sessions, and all the amazing teachers – it felt like a treat to learn from so many people. Kaity’s teaching style in general is one of the best parts, she is so patient, clear, and knowledgeable.

I highly recommend this program! Kaity is an amazing, intentional teacher, the material is high-quality and it prepares you to work with others in a very impactful way and feel confident in doing so. Even if you don’t do this to be a “Somatic Yoga Therapy® Practitioner” just the personal, spiritual growth from the training is so powerful. You’ll make friends for life.
