    Step 1: Heal yourself

    You've been on a healing journey for years now.

    To be honest, you have more tools than you know what to do with.

    Your mind longs for something that clearly "works".

    Your body longs for confidence that you can navigate life's challenges.

    No matter how many tools you have learnt, you will not be able to increase your capacity in the old paradigm of healing.

    Healing modalities without psychoeducation create hopelessness...

    The hardest emotion a human being can face.

    Its time to learn exactly how safety and slowness provoke the bodies healing of chronic stress and complex trauma.

    What is Therapeutic Embodiment?

    Therapeutic Embodiment is a framework to help you integrate functional somatics and spiritual inquiry into any modality.

    TE also works as a standalone modality that is effective in 1:1 or group sessions.

    It deepens your personal practice so you can hold better spaces, and will be woven through your existing modalities so you can feel more confident in your business and work.

    Lead teacher

    Ava is the director of Functional Spirituality and the popular yoga and meditation centre Spanda School. She is a philosopher with a degree from the University of Sydney, retreat leader, business owner and somatic therapist. Her deepest passions are non-dual philosophies, community healing and looking at the impacts of spirituality.

    Ava's path started with a ferver for awakening and non-duality. However over the years her path has matured with a more functional approach. Her work now considers the wide-spread complex trauma that lies at the heart of almost every obstacle to happy, healthy and connected living, and marries profound mystical approaches with nervous system regulation.

    She has trained with Paul Muller-Ortega (Blue throat yoga), NARM (complex trauma), Cecily Milne (yoga detour) to name a few.

    Ava is predominantly known for her thriving yoga studio, silent retreats and the phenomenal teachers that emerge from her yoga and trauma-informed certifications. She lives in beautiful Western Australia with her family and animals.
