Why Soma 4 Living?


Practical:

Practical training’s tailored to the needs or your organization. We help “Release the Performance” of your people and your organization. We challenge your people to start to take control of their prevention and performance.  We get them involved, find out what makes them tick and give them practical tools and information they can apply to their work, their movement and their life.  We don’t just give them the fish, we teach them how, why and when to fish.

Best Practices:

Education especially adult education demands specific approaches. Our staff have been researching and refining our programs and delivery so you are getting the best practices proven by today's science and over 20 years experience. We use methods to access all learning styles and help improve the knowledge and retention for all the levels and forms of intelligence.  We use the proven methods for learning, understanding and retention.  We make it applicable to the jobs, positions and demands that your people work in everyday. 

Interactive:

One of the reason our workshops are so well received (99.9% of people taking our workshops would recommend them to others) is because we just don’t talk to the audience we interact with them.  We open their eyes and their minds to the limitations of most approaches and give them the understanding, motivation and techniques for immediate application and benefit. 

Entertaining:

Just presenting information and statistics is very boring.  People like to be entertained and engaged.   This is when learning becomes embodied.  We can take a closed or restricted mind and open it to new possibilities of self awareness, skill development, resilience and personal performance.  We take special pride in making your people better now, but also giving them the tools so they can continue to improve on their own.
