WHAT A RIDE✨
6 months ago I ended up on the @somaticrelease page and I knew straight away something was there for me. I truly believe that everything happens for a reason and today I am so so proud to call myself a SomatIQ Breathwork practitioner.
We just closed 4 months of online intense learning and practice, finishing up with a 4 days in person workshop in Arizona that was absolutely amazing. Learning all about the power of our breath, how it’s regulating our nervous system and the way we show up into the world as human beings.
Meeting up with 60 beautiful souls, learning from the best mentors of all times, the creators themselves, what a BLAAAAST✨
I have no words but thank you. Thank you for inspiring all of us to becoming the clearest and fullest version of ourselves and for allowing us to share that back to the world.
This is an incredible gift that will change the world for the better. I’m taping into something that’s bringing me so much hope about the future as a collective.
I feel empowered, feminine, vulnerable, strong, beautiful and FREE. I can’t wait to open this healing container for my community💕

I LOVED being a part of this community and learning from Jaggers and Fish! It was such a powerful experience to go through my own healing journey and to learn from the best on how to give this experience to others!

What a privilege and wonderful experience joining the in-person practitioner training. The opportunity to witness and hold space for complete strangers sharing and processing their suppressed emotions, traumas, and stored stresses was something that is hard to put into words. We truly are not alone in our struggles. The container the Somatic team created through the training and breathwork sessions over the 4 day course supported safety, growth, education and an overall amazing experience. Since completing the training I've felt more connection to myself, my body, my purpose and drive. I believe this modality can serve as a great tool for healing, growth, and change and I'm looking forward to sharing it within my community.

The practitioner training was a transformational experience. I went to learn a modality and came away with so much more. Steven and Fisch are truly authentic and passionate individuals. I felt so seen by them and learned how to hold that space for others. In this space that was created I was able to let go of emotions that I had no idea were stuck in my body.
After the weekend training I felt so much lighter and more aligned, I made amazing friendships, and I received a tool to help me in my work to help others heal.
I highly recommend this training to anyone interested in breath work and holding space for others. There are some things you can learn by reading and there are some things that just need to be experienced. Let this team guide you in that journey!

I went into this 4 day in person training looking to liberate myself from limiting beliefs that were holding me back to take the next step in my practice now that we moved here to the US from Peru.
The amount of wisdom, knowledge, love, support, allowance to express and safety I experienced, can easily be one of the best of my life.
The SomatIQ team was the best team you could ask for. I could see them in my mind and heart, like the perfect piece of music. All nsync, all holding the best of Spaces every time.
I left there feeling Empowered, dull of joy, humble and ready to experience this Amazing practice myself and share with whom ever needs it.
It’s just tapping and working with the best gift life gave us, our Breath.

This training provided a container of absolute safety. Not only is the educational aspect mind blowing but the creators and staff are all so incredibly invested in us as not only future practitioners, but human beings also. Since being back I have a clear and refined vision of how I want to have my ripple effect on this world.
My favorite part was listening to Steven talk. So passionate, knowledgeable, honest, and grounded. Also, I absolutely enjoyed the session that we held for the public. It was so powerful to experience that.
This training can benefit anyone who wants to learn more about the nervous system, breathing, and serving others.
I say do it, you will not once regret it. If there is a will, there is a way.

I attended the Somatiq Breathwork training in Austin TX back in 09/2023. I attended hoping to gain some insights as a performer about the breath. I left with a completely new outlook on the life I've been living up to this point. Besides witnessing others have huge breakthroughs in their lives during the training, I experienced the profound realization of my own that a) I talk too much, b) I don't mean everything I speak, c) I shut people down when they're angry, d) I shut myself down when I'm angry, and e) that I've never truly experienced COMMUNITY before this training with these people in Austin, TX. I cannot tell you how grateful I am for the lessons learned, the tools gathered, not just to be a better professional but to navigate this world with space for us all to respond to what's happening to us. This training was necessary for me, even if I never become a full breathwork practitioner, I was lead to this work, I felt called here, and I left with a larger sense of power and compassion for myself and other people. Never in my life have I written in my gratitude journal that I was grateful for other people in general. Sure I've been grateful for individuals or groups who benefit me but I am truly grateful after this experience that other people are out here living along side me. Thank you to all the Somatiq Team. I felt so cared for while I went through so much adjusting. I felt trusted with the knowledge and faith in me. Thank you for one of the most important pieces of education I've had to date.

I have completed 4 certifications this year and must say that the somatic breathwork practitioner training was by far the most impactful. Not only were the breathwork sessions included in the training transformative on a personal level, but the curriculum completely shifted my perspective on what it means to hold space as a practitioner. Two days after the training I held my first 1:1 session and they shared with me how profound and deeply healing their experience was. This work is extremely potent and powerful. It has changed my life and I know it will change so many other’s lives too.

I was given the opportunity to join the in person training in early December, before taking this class I had experienced somatic Breathwork before, and each time was a huge shift for me in my life, but not as huge as receiving this training. The biggest impact for me was realizing how big of a part that I play in my every day life. You ARE what you repeatedly do, not what you do sometimes. That was a huge wake up call. The way I show up for myself is the same way I show up for others. And all it takes is simply being more mindful of each breath you take. I feel as if I can look at myself in a way of what does my BODY NEED, not what is WRONG with ME. Having a deeper understanding of what the nervous system is and how little simple stressors can have a big impact on your body if not processed in a way that makes YOU feel better. It doesn't matter what it LOOKS like, it matters what it FEELS like. My favorite part about the practitioner training was on day three, we could all feel the energy in the room was not where we wanted it to be, so we all got up and danced and moved to some music around the room. We laughed, we connected, and were mindful in what we needed for ourselves.
I feel like anyone and everyone could benefit from this training and experience, I feel that if people had a better understanding of why "they are the way they are" we'd all be much more gentle and nurturing to ourselves. There is nothing "wrong" with any of us, there is nothing to "fix" We just simply need help RE-membering who we are and what are purpose is. We all work better in community, and this community has your back through and through. Jaggers and Fish and everyone else who held this container have such a beautiful soul and energy and the fact they all want to SHARE this knowledge with others shows the level of integrity they hold for this modality and themselves. Thank you a million times and more. For the safety, for the permission, and most importantly the LOVE you gave each and every one of us. Till next time.

This practitioner training was absolutely wonderful: intentional, practical, grounded, inspiring, thorough, and realistic. To be equipped with tools that help you iron out the wrinkles in yourself and then to learn that skillset to help others, that is truly an incredible gift to give yourself and receive.
What I appreciated most about this practitioner training though was its authenticity and humility. Jaggers, Fish, and the instructors are very clear about the need to really understand the mechanics/framework of the SomaticIQ/Somatic Breathwork practice and the importance of multiple real world applications/practice to refine your comfort to help others. They do an incredible job introducing the notion that our job is to be weary of doing too much in our overeagerness to help others have a release. The expectation setting and corralling was the best part. It showed me the wealth of experience these guys had in helping others and seeing a diversity of experiences so that we could be present, observant, in-tune, and cognizant of what signals someone is giving us to allow us to help them and where we should tread lightly.
Anyone could benefit from this, and I wish the SomaticIQ modality of breathwork was something taught more broadly at a younger age.
Thank you all for creating a space to feel safe, vulnerable, a curious novice, and structuring the training so we get multiple reps and feedback in implementing the SomaticIQ Breathwork framework. This was awesome!

Somatic Breathwork Training has been a transformative journey that has left a profound impact on my life and those around me. The largest realization I've had from joining this training is the incredible power of our breath in healing and self-discovery. It's amazing how something as natural as breathing can unlock such deep, positive changes within us.
As a Somatic Breathwork Practitioner, I've witnessed the ripple effect of this transformation in my own life and in the lives of those around me. Friends and family have benefited from my newfound ability to guide them through breathwork sessions, helping them reduce stress, gain clarity, and tap into their inner resilience. It's an incredible gift to be able to share this practice and see its positive impact on others.
My favorite part of the Practitioner Training and SomatIQ Creators was the sense of community and support. The training provided a space for connection and growth with like-minded individuals. The collaborative learning and shared experiences were both enriching and inspiring. It truly felt like a supportive family, and that made the journey even more rewarding.
I wholeheartedly recommend Somatic Breathwork Training to anyone seeking personal growth, self-discovery, and the tools to help others on their healing journeys. Whether you're a wellness professional or simply someone looking to enhance your own well-being, this training offers profound insights and skills that can transform lives. The knowledge gained here is a gift that keeps on giving, and I couldn't be more grateful for this life-changing experience. Joining the Somatic Breathwork community is a decision you won't regret, and it has the potential to positively impact your life and the lives of those you touch.

The SomatIQ Breathwork training gave me the realization that this breathwork practice is different than many other types of breathwork, as I have experienced firsthand. While other breathwork practices also activate a client’s sympathetic nervous system, most other practices do not have a follow-on “repatterning” phase in which the client’s parasympathetic nervous system is activated to help close-out the breathwork session gently so that the client is not left in a potentially “blasted off” state at the end of the session. I got so much out of the in-person training because of the hands-on, experiential training coupled by verbal support from Steven, Fish and the other veteran practitioners who were supporting the training. My two favorite things from the in-person training was 1) helping to facilitate the almost 100-person, public breathwork session in downtown Austin on the last day of training, and 2) being able to hear Steven and Fish’s daily insights and wisdom during the training. Witnessing the public session gave me a glimpse of how this breathwork movement is transforming lives. I left the 4-day training more inspired and hopeful that because of the work born out of the wisdom from individuals like Steven and shepherded to others via Fish’s prompting, clients have another potential modality to help them tap into their own innate wisdom for self-transformation. Thank you, Steven, Fish and the whole SomatIQ Breathwork team. You are radically changing lives. See you at the future Level 2 training. 🙏 ❤️

It’s hard to put experiences like this into words…. But I will try.
You know when you meet people online & wonder if they’ll be the same in person? And then they’re not… bummer right?
Jaggers & Fish are two of the most genuine, loving, respectable & present humans I’ve ever met.
@jaggersjr & @fishfischer_ thank you for showing me just how impactful the gift of witnessing others is.
By fully witnessing myself, I am gifted with the availability to witness others in their entirety.
SomatIQ breathwork is unlike anything I’ve ever experienced before. Using our simple breath mindfully & with purpose - clearing out all that does not serve us anymore to make room. Make room for connection, presence, power, love, peace, calm…
thank you thank you thank you. these are the words that come to mind the most.

The 4 day in person training was an incredibly powerful experience for me. Jaggers and the team were able to beautifully hold space for us all and created so much safety for us to show up in our authenticity. I am leaving the weekend feeling so clear, connected with myself and full of gratitude. There is a huge need for this work in the world and I feel so empowered and inspired to share it.
