In my application,, soma tools are sensory tools.


They cultivate a sense of relaxed awareness and spaciousness,

which is needed to transcend and transform any difficulty

and to grow and evolve consciousness.

Here's why others have joined the training:

Dealing with ADHD in a fast-paced work environment

"I've taken the course many times. It initially helped me to get a job in my purpose, and to know that I deserve that type of job and that type of abundance. And after receiving an ADHD diagnosis I retook the course and revisited the soma therapies, which helped me in this very fast-paced position. I have more peace, I'm able to tackle more of my responsibilities, and I don't feel as much pressure to get things done because I'm able to figure out what needs more of my attention.  I just feel good." 
-- Seradin Engram


Increased energy & weight loss

"I’ve been battling weight issues due to really bad self-image caused by [childhood experiences]. I knew there must be some baggage I’m not seeing or just not releasing. That’s where what Panya teaches has been such a great help. I've released emotion (and weight) I've stored in my body for years and experienced so much energy."

Thank you Panya for taking what seem like simple concepts and putting them into such a concise, effective and efficient package. When I watch you I feel peace and tranquility and 'you can do this' coming right out of the screen. And I am getting to where I want to be. Love the program!!"

-- Sara Harder


Finding stability in times of change

"Panya has the unique ability to speak into a camera as if she is personally delivering a message to me through the screen... I was inspired everyday I went through a lesson. I allowed myself to be vulnerable and felt myself growing in confidence and tapping into my own wisdom... I credit Panya's course for empowering me with an Onward and Upward guide that accelerated a transitional moment in my journey. I highly recommend it to anyone, and everyone, who is ready to grow and move onward and upward!"


-- Michele Reeves


Healing trauma, achieving greater physical & emotional health

"I was dealing with some heavy emotional things and I needed to get that out of my body. I joined around the beginning of the pandemic where we were dealing with uprising and lockdown at the same time. Being able to work through my personal trauma while still being able to manage what was happening outside was vitally important to my health."

Tools and practices for personal growth

"I joined the online coaching program because I know that working with Panya is always an opportunity for self-reflection, deeper connection with myself, and growth. The program helped me to set some goals, tap more deeply into my intuition, and allow myself the space to recognize what was holding me back and work through those blocks. The program also helped me to let go of fear, and helped me to go with the flow, while setting longer term objectives for myself. I absolutely would recommend the program to individuals that are interested in taking a deep look at themselves and are interested in their own personal growth. The journey for every person is a deeply personal one, and so you really set the course for what you want to gain out of the experience.  Panya’s program offers the roadmap."

Techniques for mind-body-spirit integration

"I joined the program because it came highly recommended.  What really stood out for me were the practices for grounding, centering, stress relief, vagal toning, manifestation and integration.  I learned that it's not enough to 'think' an intention.  You need to get anchored in the body too, since that's the place of action, and where you make it real.  The program gives you powerful somatic tools and practices to integrate mind, body and spirit, and supercharge your progress."

Deeper connection in relationship

"I wanted to experience deeper connection with the people in my life.  I have in the past done a lot of expectation and people pleasing in relationship. After taking the course and doing the practices, I find that my expectations have changed, which has changed my experience. I feel less burdened in relationship, and I allow space for what is to just be. This has taken the pressure off, and what is left is the joy of meaningful connection."
