Sarah Grace, Founder of Somatic Sanctuary, facilitates clients to find their way home to themselves, allowing for greater feelings of ease, peace, and nourished vitality. Sarah has supported thousands of people struggling with physical tension, anxiety, and unresolved trauma to move through those restrictions and to truly settle into their bodies and into their Soul Essence. Sarah refers to this “Coming Home to One’s Embodied Soul Essence” as the path to true, integrated healing.
Sarah has been deeply devoted to the Somatic Arts for the past 17 years, following a severe car accident that led her to somatic healing modalities. Since 2005, she has been deeply immersed in the study of Continuum movement with founder Emilie Conrad, and with Susan Harper of Continuum Montage. Owing to the depth of her experience in her own healing and embodiment journey, Sarah knows firsthand what is required to support individuals to access their Soul Essence, and holds deep heart presence with her clients as they tap into their own grounded embodiment.
As a Registered Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapist, Authorized Continuum Movement Teacher, Somatic Experience Practitioner, Conscious Birth Doula and Pre- and Perinatal Attachment Facilitator, Sarah brings together a synergistic blend of somatic and trauma resolution practices to her work with women, children, and families. She is particularly passionate about supporting families through the birth process and loves to share Continuum with moms through pregnancy and into labor, inviting a deeper trust of the innate Health and Mystery that is our birthright.
In 2014, Sarah founded Somatic Sanctuary of Ojai, California, a Somatic-based Healing Arts Center which offers Continuum Movement, Somatic Experiencing, Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy, and Pre & Peri-natal Attachment Facilitation, along with an array of somatic movement practices. It is offered to the local and global community as a place of refuge and retreat from our fast-paced lives, a space for people to restore their vitality and wholeness.
After years of facilitating one-on-one and group sessions around the world, Sarah’s passion today lies in creating sacred space for people to slow down, breathe and connect to their bodies in a gentle and fluid manner. She has witnessed time and time again the empowerment that this approach offers individuals in returning to their own Divine Nature.
