UZAZU Embodied Intelligence Certified Practitioners
UZAZU Master Co-Trainer, Psychotherapist, Somatic Movement TherapistMaine, United StatesEnglish
As a licensed social worker (LCSW) and registered somatic movement therapist (RSMT), I bring over 25 years of clinical expertise as a psychotherapist specializing in trauma and somatic work to my role as UZAZU’s clinical advisor. I am an UZAZU co-trainer and certified practitioner, helping develop, guide, and deliver our live & online training events and our 10-month certification program; and I actively support our UZAZU community.
In my clinical work as a psychotherapist I bring UZAZU, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Body-Mind Centering®, embodied polyvagal theory, ego state work, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), and Deep Brain Reorienting (DBR) to my sessions with clients. As a Somatic Movement Therapist I integrate UZAZU with Body-Mind Centering® as well other somatic and movement-based approaches to embodied work.
I also provide consultation and professional development workshops to helping professionals, exploring the integration of somatic/body-based work with psychotherapy. I’ve presented workshops on Polyvagal Theory at Kripalu and Omega Institute, and have been a regular co-presenter & collaborator with Deb Dana, an internationally renowned speaker and educator on Polyvagal Theory.
In addition to my profession as a psychotherapist and somatic movement therapist, I teach somatic approaches to improvisational dance and contact improvisation, with an extensive background and training in yoga, bodywork, theater, and contact improvisation. I am also a DJ for our beloved ecstatic dance community, here in Portland, Maine.
I’m currently hunkered down during COVID with my partner Jason and his 12 year old son, as well as 2 cats and a senior dog, and with my recent-ish college graduate daughter just around the corner. My therapy website is debgrant.net. I love UZAZU and delight in being a part of the UZAZU team!
Director & Lead Trainer of UZAZU, Life CoachMaine, United StatesDutch, English
Dylan Newcomb is the founder & lead trainer of UZAZU Embodied Intelligence, a master embodiment-based coach for helping professionals & cultural creatives, and an avid embodiment researcher.
Dylan trained at the Juilliard School in both dance performance and music composition, and was a multi-award-winning choreographer-composer in the Netherlands for over a decade. Generously funded by the Dutch government, Dylan went on to co-found Danslab Institute for Movement Research in 2001, where he conducted cross-cultural research for several years, exploring how vocal sounds, breath, and movement influenced thought, emotion, and behavior across hundreds of subjects. This research formed the basis for what has evolved into a comprehensive modality known as UZAZU Embodied Intelligence.
Over the past 18 years, Dylan has taught his unique approach to embodiment training to over 3,000 students across 4 continents. He has trained coaches, therapists, group facilitators, policemen, doctors, and business leaders in how to quickly balance their inner states to bring more ease and flow to their engagement in the world.
Dylan is increasingly recognized as one of the emerging, next generation of leaders in the space of bringing the science and practice of embodiment-based personal development into the 21st Century.
As a master-coach, Dylan Newcomb works 1-1 online with helping professionals, supporting them to move through the remaining blocks holding them back from effectively getting their purpose-driven work into the world, and he works with conscious entrepreneurs & cultural creatives looking to grow their impact, while also growing as a whole person.

I work as a therapist, embodiment coach, and somatic therapist in person in Saint-Petersburg/Russia and also online. Individually and with pairs or in groups
Embodiment facilitator, certified UZAZU embodiment intelligence practitionerLithuaniaRussian, English, Lithuanian
I serve the connectedness of the Human with self and the World. This statement was born in 2016 at the EFC Russia. The magic is that UZAZU bridges the attention to what's going on in a person's Inner World with what's in their Environments.
In the past I co-founded a training-consulting business, now I lead individual and group sessions using the embodiment approach. Together with the man I love, we are doing complex projects to transform the culture of companies and reorient them to work in self-organization/self-management (living or teal companies).
The main types of requests that clients come to me for individual sessions:
• What's next? Understanding where I want to go in life and how: choosing a direction, mission/purpose, prioritizing projects, setting and achieving goals.
• Problems in relations with other people (colleagues, partners, children, wives, husbands). What to do?
• Too much stuff, can't cope: high stress levels, how to preserve myself, emotional swings, can't keep my boundaries.
• How to be myself in relations with the team/group: it is difficult to express myself to the group, underestimating or devaluing myself and my abilities, finding inner strength.
• Making difficult and complex decisions.
• Working with families: how a mother can let her child go to kindergarten, school while remaining calm and "good" mother.
• The first persons of companies - shareholders: finding a shared vision, finding sources of inner strength, aligning the top team.
I invite you to an introduction meeting, during which you will be able to understand how effective and easy it is for you to work with me, and I will understand how beneficial I can be to you.

My current mission is to bring my lifelong learnings as a business executive and my coaching and UZAZU skills to benefit my clients. I work with individuals and leaders that feel stuck in their lives, careers and businesses, to become aware of the relationship between their current challenges and the way they are observing and showing up in the world. I coach them on how to become better observers and from there to shift into a more resourceful way of being that better serves their life, career and business goals. I use a range of coaching and facilitation methods, grounded in neuroscience and the science of living systems. The science is framed by ontology, the philosophical study of what it means to be human and live a meaningful and fulfiilling life, embodied through practices offered by the powerful framework and methods of UZAZU Embodied Intelligence.
Private Psychotherapy Practice - Clinical Social Worker, Alcohol Drug Counselor, Clinical SupervisorUnited StatesEnglish
At this point of my career, I work with adults. After obtaining my M.S.W. in 1992, I studied family therapy for many years, and I worked extensively with adolescents and their families on an outpatient, residential, and inpatient basis, and also in their homes. I am also a licensed clinical supervisor, and many years ago I was the clinical coordinator for an agency that therapists in private practice were affiliated with. I've been in private practice over 15 years, and I am fortunate to have a home office with a separate entrance with a small waiting room/bathroom on a dead end street next to a walking trail. Along with talk therapy, I am trained in a few energy psychology techniques, Imago Relationship Therapy, and more recently, Polyvagal Theory informed therapy and Internal Family Systems. I am thrilled to also use Uzazu to help my clients in an embodied way.
Embodied Intelligence Certified Practitioner, Psychotherapist, Registered Social Worker (Canada)CanadaEnglish
I have personally experienced and witnessed healing that transforms suffering. It’s astounding what happens when the energy that was stuck, and creating pain in our lives, starts to flow. I have seen people able to live their lives more fully and with more ease. It’s rarely a straight line and it’s not always pretty but it’s worth it. I believe in our innate desire and capacity to feel better.
I help people who are struggling with painful, repeating life patterns that are in the way of their goals and the life they want to live. The counselling and coaching approaches I use go directly to where you want to experience change. This is focused work – we use creative ways to help shift your life’s path.
I have worked with youth, adults and families as well as organizations and networks for 20 years. I have training in frameworks and therapeutic modalities including anti-oppression, addictions, emotional freedom techniques, expressive arts, family therapy, mindfulness, narrative therapy, process work, psychodynamic therapy, trauma counselling, and youth engagement.
I have also designed and delivered training and workshops on many topics for those working on the frontlines in the social service sector.
I work from a trauma-informed, anti-oppressive framework and strive for curiosity, compassion and humility. It’s important to me to work collaboratively and I integrate different tools and approaches based on where you are in the moment and what will have the most impact.
Professional Certified Coach (PCC) since 2012 Individuals, Teams, Global Leadership Development and Facilitation (M.Ed.), Organisational Development (OD) specialist , President, Hushagen International Inc. Canada, Owner and Managing Director MANNET SARL, Switzerland.CanadaEnglish, French
I have always been passionate about my work and the difference it makes in people's lives! This was true at the beginning of my career, when I worked in sport and led the development of training materials for coaches; later on, when I became a partner in an international consulting firm that specialized in organizational development and change; and now, when my focus is on coaching managers to be more effective as both managers and leaders.
I have been a Professional Certified Coach for more than 10 years. My clients come from a broad range of countries and cultures, and most are middle- and senior-level managers in international organisations who want to be more effective in their lives and in their work. They want results with more ease and grace and with less stress.
UZAZU Embodied Intelligence is a brilliant addition to my Ontological coaching base! I use a variety of other coaching approaches (Gestalt, Strozzi somatic coaching, PowerCoaching) and leadership frameworks to help my clients step into their leadership role, manage difficult conversations, and show up more consistently at their fully embodied best.
I am certified as an International Systemic Team Coach, and in addition to being licensed to use many psychometric assessments, I recently completed certification to use The Leadership Circle 360.
I design and deliver leadership development courses, facilitate learning events, and consult on organisational development and change. My coaching clients know that my experience in these areas has given me a deeper familiarity with and understanding of their challenges and their world.
My current client base come from 20 different countries. I do most of my coaching work virtually.
Contact me if you want to fully step into and embrace your leadership role and become more effective in your work and life with less effort and less stress.
Somatic Coach, (Sexological) Bodyworker, Massage TherapistGermanyGerman, English
As a Sexological Bodyworker and Somatic Sex Educator I work mainly with people who want to explore their sexuality - either because there is an issue they want to resolve or just because they are curious and think, there must be "more".
What I find so fascinating about sexuality is, that it's one of those "vertical" topics - it touches on so many central areas of our being - our self-love, our body image, our gender identification, our sexual orientation,, our body awareness, our deep longing for connection and intimacy, our capacity for cultivating pleasure, our courage to own our desires, our capacatiy to say yes and no and set boundaries - the list goes on.
And yet in many contexts sexuality is excluded when we talk about ourselves. when we express ourselves. There often is no language, there is shame, we don't have a culture tp explore this topic outside our romantic relationships, where it's difficult to really focus on yourself - as in this setting it's always already a relationship thing.
In my sessions I offer my clients a space of exploration, a space of permission to discover who you are as a sexual and human being.
UZAZU has given me the tools to incorporate a wider range of topics in my coaching and to approach a topic from more angles, What's so exceptional about UZAZU as a modality (amongst other things) is, that it allows you to track whatever issue you want to work with simultanously in your body, mind and awareness and to work with all these elements in a system that makes sense. How do your stories play out in your body? How do your sensations and emotions inform the theories you come up with about your life and yourself and how can we work and play with all those elements in a safe enough container?
I am based in Berlin, Germany where I live with my partner within a polyarmorous network. I believe that each of us has a responsibility to work on our own stuff but that the ultimate goal is to build communities and to contribute to a more just and joyful society.

Marion KnoxUnited StatesEnglish
My UZAZU coaching practice is informed by my professional background in the arts, dance, theater, creative writing and, perhaps oddly, garden design. The question I ask is, how may we best nurture in ourselves and each other the flourishing that is there, now, ready to emerge?

Former UZAZU Curriculum Designer, Instructional Designer, UZAZU FacilitatorUnited StatesEnglish
In 2020-21, I worked to help bring a rigorous approach to the design and development of UZAZU Trainings at all levels. Through this process, we’ve designed a robust curriculum and competency framework for the Basic and Intermediate Professional & Personal learning journeys with UZAZU Embodied Intelligence.
I’m also an Instructional Designer for eLearning for both educational institutions and industry, currently working with Raising Voices, a non-profit with the mission of preventing violence against women and children worldwide, based in Uganda.
As a certified UZAZU practitioner, I offer support to others in their life journey to become conscious—in an embodied way—about all the structures that hold us back from freely expressing the simplicity of our authentic, true nature. How? By tapping into our innate, childlike sense of curiosity, play, experimentation, and ultimately trust in ourselves, to arrive at a place of ease, joy, and freedom.
What do you have to “let go of” in order to create space for what wants to come in? What old structures do you need to shed to allow an opening for the abundance that exists within you, without having to “figure it out” and “make it happen?”
Since June 2020, I've been living on my sailboat with my partner Will, and am a life-long sailor who is Captain of Her Own Ship; a devoted dancer who learned to get “out of my mind and into my body” on the dance floor; a writer of poems, plays, and personal reflection; an actor, a singer, and keyboard explorer; and a lover of the journey of life.
Physical therapist, Yoga teacher, Embodiment coachUnited StatesEnglish,
I have many years of experience as a clinical physical therapist helping thousands of people (one at a time) at some of the lowest points in their lives. I also have long experience of working with and observing multitude of various health care professionals providing care.
My experiences taught me deep respect for people, for their inner power and resilience. I gained deep appreciation for the innate wisdom that's available to us when we have the conditions to listen and connect to ourselves.
Each one of us may provide help or need help at different times. We have so much in common. Our structure, our needs, and our truths are very similar. Yet we are each a unique individual with our unique life experiences and history, our beliefs and strategies, our choices, and our unique blind spots.
As an embodiment coach and a yoga and mindfulness teacher I facilitate clients to connect and listen to their body as a guiding source of truth and wisdom. I utilize the UZAZU Embodied Intelligence frame work to help clients recognize their modes of being and expand their capacity to shift their states with ease and freedom, so that they really have a choice in how to show up in each precious moment of life.

Sadhan Els Vandewalle
Dance, Art and Movement FacilitatorBelgiumDutch, English, French, German
After a major burnout/crash end of 2018, releasing all that did no longer serve and support me in my transition to stepping into authenticity and sovereignty. Shifting into a profession and most of all a new solid foundation from where I can bring my mission on Mother Earth. Which is, as I believe or sense now, is to hold space for healing through movement, creativity and sound. As the answer to this question is still and always evolving on the path, I do feel I have a preference to work with women and small children in particular and in 1 on 1 or small group sessions to be able to dive deep.
