Pam Steinick – West Des Moines
My name is Pam Steinick, and I live in the midwest of the United States, and work in the metro area of Des Moines, Iowa. I have been an Occupational Therapist since 1991, and became a Certified Yoga Therapist in the SomaYoga methodology (blending Somatics and Therapeutic yoga) in 2020. I see clients now for private sessions and small group classes and workshops, focused on finding balance from the inside using Somatics and breath re-education and then use yoga poses to help people move better; with more ease. I see a range of clients, from those with persistent/chronic pain with issues such as chronic back pain, sciatica, shoulder and neck issues, MS, scoliosis, fibromyalgia, asthma, etc. to high school and ironman athletes. I also work with those that have stress, anxiety, and trauma, as stress causes imbalances in the breath and the physical body as well, and using the Kosha layers and Yamas and Niyamas (from yoga), as well as breath and Somatics, helps people find relief and ease. Both Somatics (which is neuromuscular retraining, or looking at muscle imbalances by retraining the patterns in the brain rather than stretching the muscle tissues) and Buteyko breath re-education, helps empower my clients to be more aware of what’s happening in their neuromuscular, respiratory, and nervous systems, AND make changes so that these systems are working as efficiently and as balanced as they can. These methods literally affect every body system, to help people feel better, breathe better, and therefore, suffer less.
I see people primarily at my office located inside Core Physical Therapy in West Des Moines, Iowa, but can also do virtual sessions for those that are located outside of my area. I also offer a small therapeutic class called Persistent Pain, which is a class focused on breath re-education and Somatic movements to find better balance and ease in your core, in person only. I also offer workshops focused on Somatic movements and building into the yoga poses (for better functional movement) and breath re-education. I am part of the faculty of Yoga North International SomaYoga Institute as well, and offer the 200 and 500 hour Therapeutic SomaYoga Trainings in West Des Moines.
My business is Atha SomaYoga, and you can find me at www.athasomayoga.com.
