We work with women from many different backgrounds - lawyers, professors, accountants, executives, teachers, nurses, researchers, beauty consultants, service workers, therapists, coaches, to name a few - and when we ask them why they attend our journeys and retreats, or do 1-on-1 coaching, we get the same answer:
"I want access to that part of me which has been been asleep for so many years . . . . my feminine essence . . . . without losing my power."
In essence, the work of NaiAsa (formerly Soul Flow Alchemy), has been to help women unlock, awaken, and access their inner feminine goddess to achieve harmony, balance, joy, and flow in their lives to make their dreams come true, without having to be or act like anyone that they're not.
Because of the success of our work, we've been asked by female professionals in health, therapy, yoga, coaching, and business in the last few years on how this could be brought to their own clientele.
Three years in the making, we're happy to present The NaiAsa Institute, an International Institute for Integrated Somatic Education, Coaching and Healing Arts, help women transform their lives by teaching them new paradigms of healing and possibility through education, movement, and neuroscience.
Our goal is not to have as many women as possible to "spread the word". Instead, we're being very selective on whom we want to work with and only want a small number of women to be certified, NaiAsa Institute Somatic Soul Coaches. While mostly virtual, certification will require much study, time, commitment, and financial resources to complete. And for those of you who do . . . .
you will become only a handful of women in the world who'll have the science, skills, and knowledge, taught by a published Ph.D in Neuroscience, to properly and professionally hold space for and take women on a journey to discovering/re-discovering their inner feminine fire. In the process, you'll be joining an exclusive, cross-cultural community of like-minded, powerful Goddesses who have invested in and stewarded the creation of a temple dedicated to the Sacred Feminine, the 1st of its kind in the world.
There is no other other training or coaching program in existence offering this education and exclusive benefits.

The NaiAsa Institute Training Program*
To fly our flag, a candidate must demonstrate knowledge, presentation skills, mastery of flow foundations, applications of learned theories (Lokahi Medicine Wheel), demonstrate facilitation skills, and create accountability and trust.
The program consists of 4 tracks starting with a Foundations layer which is the primary prerequisite for each:
Foundations (Core Competency)
Then one, a combination, or all of the following can be taken after:
NeuroSomatic Soul Coach™ Training and Certification (Details & Dates Below)
Therapeutic Flow Arts (Details & Launch Date TBD)
NaiAsana™ Yoga Teacher Training (Details & launch Date TBD)
* As a possible Founding Mother, you’re getting early access to these trainings and when you embark on the journey to being a NaiAsa Institute-certified practitioner, you’ll get access to ALL of these programs for a very SPECIAL exchange amount; in addition, we’ve arranged the curriculum in a specific way so it can be completed in 12 months.
Each of the programs are broken down into 5 spirals or essentials and have a corresponding Kosha
More specifically, it’s our vision that you, as a Founding Mother, will also take on a role of educator or facilitator (needs some re-wording)
This initial offering and special sequence of the curriculum will end after the BTT - Bali retreat 2019. From then on, these programs (after Foundations) will be offered individually with their own exchange amount.
