6-Hour Online Workshop

Codependent, perfectionist, and people-pleasing habits often arise when we are disconnected from our authenticity and true self. When we are raised with codependency, there is often a mind-body rupture as we seek to be the person we think other people want us to be. Once you are in touch with your habitual thinking and emotions, you can retrain your brain using the power of neuroplasticity to believe new things. Somatics, or body-based modalities, help us to reconnect with our bodies in ways that help us step out of old codependent ways of thinking, feeling, and being.

Join Master Certified Somatic Coach María-Victoria Albina for a movement-based experiential live online workshop exploring how codependency lives in your mind-body. Through a combination of thought work, somatic exercises, and breathwork, María-Victoria helps participants understand codependency, shift our habitual, conditioned thinking, and how to move towards interdependence with love, compassion, and care.

Discover tools for overcoming people-pleasing, disappointing, destructive, self-sabotaging patterns that keep you from the life you want. With these tools access the power to heal your mind, body, and spirit.

Breathwork will be offered as part of this workshop, please consult contraindications.
