Private sessions and group explorations

aligning with your body's wisdom

to create meaning and healing

Current Offerings:


Individual Somatics Sessions

in Ann Arbor and Detroit (or on Zoom)

I help fellow artists, healers, clergy, culture makers, activists, educators, and other providers of care 

access resources within their bodies to lead their lives with support, clarity, authenticity, and meaning. 


One-on-one sessions offer individualized support to access your body’s wisdom, creativity, agency, resilience, and your birthright of an innate capacity for healing. 

*Special Fall Workshops*

*Those with an introduction or prior experience are warmly welcomed to try the group for a month before choosing to sign on.  To inquire:


Through the practice of Authentic Movement, we investigate how, rather than moving our bodies in habitual ways, or those dictated by the outside,

we can be led by our bodies into movement.

Eyes-closed movers heeding impulses for movement and stillness; silence and sound, serve also as witnesses to one another, regarding each other with

compassion, curiosity and care.

An interplay of embodiment, contemplation, creativity, and mystery, the practice connects us to our bodies, our creative and physical impulses, and to our exquisite sensitivity and empowerment.



In Ann Arbor at 180 Little Lake Drive, Suite 1

"I am so grateful to have discovered this practice. Stefanie has created a rare space to safely dive into the body's own messages and inner guidance, to allow movement itself to reveal, release, create and be. If your body is craving to move in complete creative freedom, unencumbered by right or wrong, or judgement; if you are curious what your body itself might reveal to you, I highly recommend this practice and Stefanie's work– she is a brilliant facilitator!"
