I weave embodied eating disorder recovery frameworks, integrative trauma-informed somatic coaching, and the lessons learnt from my own recovery journey into a compassionate, body-first approach to eating disorder recovery and self-discovery.
My personal eating disorder recovery journey was the catalyst for my transformation. Walking the recovery road has brought me closer to what truly matters to me, has guided me to towards new tools and sustainable resources for feeling and being, and has deepened my self-trust. Eating disorder recovery is a path of deepening into embodiment.

Nervous System Mentor

I am a nervous system mentor who blends spirituality and science together to help those who are in the process of awakening to feel safe in their own skin & grounded here on Earth.
My own experience of an intense spiritual & energetic awakening led me on a journey of self-healing and self-discovery. Along the way, I came across the Polyvagal theory & nervous system healing & my life transformed.
Thanks to somatic work, I have been able to overcome a lifetime of chronic anxiety & depression, self-harm & addiction. Now I live a life that is free from drama & chaos and instead, filled with peace.
Drawing from my background as a teacher, I work with clients to educate them on the workings of their nervous system, helping them to understand their physiology and guiding them gently and lovingly towards a new way of living.
One that is free from the restraints of survival stress.
I believe that ‘true human enlightenment will happen when all human beings on the planet have regulated their nervous systems’ and I am here to play a role in spreading the word of this amazing work!

Lexy Florentina
Somatic Practitioner

My name is Lexy Florentina Borja and I’m a Trauma Trained Somatic Practitioner helping people release stored stress, elevate their relationships and reconnect with their body.
I have completed over 500 hours of client work and training in Trauma Informed Coaching, PolyVagal Theory, Somatic Stress Release, Attachment Theory, Internal Family Systems, Somatic Therapy and Holistic Health.
But with the professional work aside, I am first and foremost a human who has experienced complex trauma, childhood trauma and chronic health challenges. As a mentor and space-holder, I come with empathy for and understanding of what it’s like to feel stuck, in pain, and living in a cycle that can’t seem to be escaped.
In the midst of my own journey I discovered just how possible it is to experience change and to cultivate a new relationship with our bodies and the world around us. Through learning the language of my body and how symptoms are messages, small changes began to show up. It was through the consistent practice of being more IN my body rather than DOING things to FIX my body that transformation slowly began to unravel.
Over the years, what I’ve come to know is that our bodies are brilliant and capable and no matter where you are on your path: you make sense.

Integrative Somatic Practitioner

Hi! I’m Georgia, a dedicated Somatic Trauma Practitioner, yoga instructor, energy healer, personal trainer and so much more! My mission is to empower you to reconnect with your body’s innate wisdom. I’m passionate about helping you understand the challenges of feeling trapped in discomfort. Through somatic practices I help you release trauma and nurture the subconscious mind so you can process your emotions effectively. I’m a true believer that health is not just about taking care of just the physical body; It’s about tapping into your body’s intelligence for healing, creating harmony between your physical, emotional, and spiritual selves, cultivating self-love, self-care, and awareness for sustained well-being. As an ex ballerina and bodybuilder, for the longest time I thought being healthy was about exercising, consuming nutrient dense high quality foods and taking supplements and herbs, which I still do all these things but my approach after being in the health industry for over 10 years as a wellness coach and bodybuilder has changed. Without addressing the body’s needs, maintaining a healthy frequency and releasing trauma from the body, lasting healing remains elusive. If you enjoy my practices send me a message on instagram, let’s connect!

Psychotherapist & Yoga Therapist

I am a psycotherapist cbt based and in the journey of my personal journey I realized the importance of integrating the body within my own process. I started studying integrative yoga therapy and in this journey I met Steven Porges Polyvagal theory. Since then I started investigating this wonderful theory and started applying it within my personal practice and with my clients.
I am also a safe and sound provider (SSP) which is an incredible auditory tool to also help clients feel better and connect better with themselves and with people around them. I recently finished the pain reprocessing therapy training which its all about signaling safety to our primitive brain so that you can engage with the pain in a different and more safe way.
I love sending my clients meditations and exercises so that they can engage with them outside the therapy space. When I found Somashare I loved the idea that other persons could benefit and enjoy the practices I make with kindness and dedication. Thanks Somashare for making me a part of this wonderful project!

She is passionate about helping her clients understand their individual relationships to food, eating, weight, and body image so they can give up dieting and self-loathing forever and become aligned with, attuned to, understanding of, and loving toward themselves throughout the lifelong process of growth, transformation, and evolution. Her 14-week group coaching program is a transformational experience designed to empower you with the skills, tools, education, and support you need to use your struggle with food & body as a path to mind-body-soul alignment so you can embody a life of freedom.

Somatic IFS Practitioner

I hold space for you and your healing parts.
Utilizing Internal Family Systems (IFS) and Somatic based practices my intention is to welcome whatever is present with compassion and curiosity. I take a lean-in approach as opposed to a fixing approach. How can we hold space for all of you without trying to force anything. And realizing that everything we do has its own inner wisdom to learn from and support.
I hold dearly the mind-body connection in the healing process of both mental and physical ailments. As a Craniosacral Therapist, I understand that holding space for healing is not a mental practice, but a body practice.
It takes a village to heal a child.
May we have enough inner and outer resources to feel supported and nourished by as we heal the collective. Making space for that a new generation of inner children that will be overflowing with love and inner health.
