What is somatic coaching?

By accessing the wisdom of the body, the somatic approach goes beyond traditional coaching methodologies, allowing for a deeply felt connection to one's own core values and life purpose. By enabeling awareness and freedom of choice, Somatic Coaching fosters positive transformation towards authentic personal growth

Exploring body signals: 

Somatic Coaching explores how bodily sensations, movements and postures reflect and influences our inner world.

A deep understanding of self:

Through mindful awareness of this inner landscape, Somatic Coaching encourages individuals to interpret the signals of the body in order to better understand their needs and motivation.

Conscious self-care and flexibility of expression: 

By attending to our true needs, Somatic Coaching playfully explores new ways of expressing and embodying our intensions and develops flexibility in our behavior patterns and opens new pathways for choice making.

Integral personal growth:

Somatic Coaching provides us with practical tools to tune into our bodily wisdom so we can confidently dive in the adventure on our own authentic journey.

«The truly important learning is to be able to do the thing you already know in another way. The more ways you have to do the things you know, the freer is your choice. And the freer your choice, the more you’re a human being.»

"There are hidden abilities in each of us that are waiting to be awakened to make our lives more conscious, more flexible and richer. The hidden abilities are much more extensive than those we are used to living with."

Workshop Whole Brain Dancing with Altea Garrido und Pascal Sangl, 2023. Gefördert durch die Stadt Stuttgart

"Dear Altea,
it's incredible, since our coaching work sessions I've been feeling great...constantly all these weeks. Something has happened in my head, I've got all my energy back since then."  Caroline

"The accompaniment provided by Altea gave me the opportunity to recognise myself and to visualise myself with the necessary capacities and strengths to decide how to respond to adversities, made me more aware of the vital moment I was living in the family context in which I found myself and helped me to reflect on the attitudes I was developing, which were influencing the interpersonal and interpersonal relationships I was living in." Gracia

"There are moments in life when you feel like you're in an endless tunnel. To focus in a more positive way in this state, you need a light. Altea was that light for me. An experience that I recommend 100%!" Adrian

"I found Altea at a time of many doubts and fears. 
With her guidance, her simple way of explaining things to me, of listening to me, with a clear structure, I managed to put my ideas in order, 
I managed to put my ideas in order, I understood my needs and I learned to give space to my fears. 
In short, I found myself again." Mariana
