Hi! I'm Kai
I'm a Somatic Therapy Practitioner and offer Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy and Relational Somatic Therapy sessions. I am also a certified facilitator of the Open Floor Conscious Movement practice, and offer somatic nature-based workshops.
Through embodied inquiry I help people align with their true abundant nature, inherent health, and wholeness.

In the last 10 years, I have led many therapeutic dance workshops and somatic yoga classes in British Columbia; including sessions in Vancouver, Squamish, at the Chopra Addiction and Wellness Center in Paradise Valley, and at the Hollyhock Leadership Center on Cortes Island.
Through a lifetime of curious exploration, fascinated by the interconnection between body, psyche, spirit, and nature - I have journeyed through many realms of self-discovery and embodiment. Each practice deepening my intimacy with living, authentic expression and relating. The somatic healing arts and living life connected and in deep conversation with nature continue to deepen and inspire me daily.
I have the utmost respect and trust in the human spirit’s ability to heal and move towards possibility and growth.
I believe each one of us holds the healing medicine and answers we most need for balance and wellness within. My work is to guide you home to reconnect with your bodies natural wisdom and ever-present health and wholeness.
I am drawn to this work through having witnessed powerful transformation in my own stress and nervous-system healing journey, as well as others.
It is my hope that the fusion of embodiment practices that I weave together, will support your healing, freedom and further expansion. I wish you much peace and fulfilment on your journey!
I am currently based in the Comox Valley. Canada. Photo credit: Amanda Mary Creative.
