Online and in-person workshops
Pregnancy & The Body's Intelligence
The changes that occur during pregnancy are some of the most profound and extreme you might ever experience. And there is a depth of support available to you from within the body's own intelligence.
This online workshop series offers a new set of tools to support you through pregnancy, labour and delivery as well as postpartum.
Whole Body Breath Workshop
The Whole Body Breath workshop explores new ways of initiating breath into the body and helps you to discover the grounded calm that results from changing from top-down breathing to a bottom-up approach.
"Doing breath work with Allyson helped me reach a new level of peace and presence with my body. I use the exercises she taught me every day to manage stress and anxiety."

Embody the Crone
This three-part workshop offers a supportive space to a small gathering of women to explore this passage into cronehood—what we believe is the gateway into our full creative power. Join Allyson and Cathy Stocker, writer, educator and movement teacher as we reclaim our fully embodied and hard-earned wisdom.
Embodiment and life coaching
Embodiment coaching helps you land in your body so that you can discover the grace and limitless resource of calm and clarity.
Embodiment coaching not only helps you discover yourself, but by reuniting with that deep intelligence found in the body, we find a renewed relationship with the present, with ourselves and with all our relationships.
Coaching in the Wild
In a coaching in the wild session, we take our work outside. Nature is a most potent companion and teacher in our journey back to the body, back to the present.
Join me on Toronto Island for a one-on-one outdoor session where we will walk and talk and explore various embodiment practices all supported by the natural world.
Discover your true nature
Many women freeze when faced with the question of what they really need or want. Our culture has taught us to serve others first, taking care of everyone else and then if there is any time or energy left, you can ‘indulge’ in some 'self-care'. There has been a systemic and cultural dulling of the profound intelligence within the body. When (if) we're asked what we truly crave, it's often a deer-in-the headlights moment.
However, there's also a trap in 'knowing what you want' or 'being who you know yourself to be'. When we claim ourselves as a fixed, known entity, our responsiveness to the present is diminished and our energies are dedicated to upholding that known entity rather than living in the present.
An alternative is to come into contact with your deepest truths and discover yourself anew in every moment, through the deep-dwelling intelligence of your body. This is the nature of our work together. We rediscover the body releasing to the breath, come into contact with the various energies felt within the body and give them a place to come home. It's when that integration happens, that clarity can be found.
This work isn't for the faint of heart – it's for those who can no longer live within a body numbed to the energies of the themselves and the world.
