Become a Certified SPRe Practitioner
Discover a more nuanced approach to the Body-Mind adventure
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 includes: How to see a person’s structure for its relationship with balance and movement and how their history is represented from internalized organization to externalized presentation.

SPRe Certification is ideal for individuals and professionals interested in a career in the cutting-edge world of somatic practice.
For people who are wanting to help others: If you are drawn to energetic work, “light work”, reiki, the healing arts or simply being of service to the people in your life, SPRe training provides an opportunity to learn methods of stewarding your clients toward their own profound physical and emotional shifts.
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.
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.
SPRe® Training Overview
Each training is capped at a maximum of 12 participants, to ensure personal attention.
SPRe® Bodywork training is a unique personal and professional experience. The training is comprised of 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 sessions, independent anatomy study and at least 80 hours of individual SPRe® sessions.
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 potential certification as a SPRe® Practitioner.
Your experience is individualized
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.
