128: Somatic Dancing and Healing with Shannon McAlister
Show Notes

Have you ever had a spontaneous dance party in your living room or got down with your bad self when your favorite song came on the radio? 

Have you noticed how different you feel afterwards? Your body is like a highway for energy, and that energy wants to move!

Today, we’re talking with Shannon McAlister about the power of Somatic Dancing and Healing. She learned to calm her nervous system and stop old patterns in their tracks through somatic healing techniques.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Somatic Dancing & Healing: moving energy as you move your body
  • What somatic means and the difference between somatic dancing and somatic healing
  • Knowing when it’s time to get up and move your body

Shannon is a Soul Expansion + Somatic Coach helping women tap into their soul expression through somatic practices & self-discovery. She is on a mission to help women answer their soul’s calling and truly express themselves. Through Somatic Dancing, women begin to quiet their inner critic and step into their soul gifts while learning to connect back to their body - all while learning to tune out the static noise of the world so they can hear and feel their own voice and energy again.


Shannon mentions two books in this episode. They are: The Body Keeps the Score and The Emotion Code.
