Soma Center, the slow motion, body intelligent studio. The healing side of practice and embodiment.

Our classes, workshops and training programs offer resources for a greater capacity to live a life of meaning in this modern world. A creative way of Embodied exercise, self-growth, and inner awareness that access your connection to the greater whole and the understanding of your part in it.

We offer a refreshing approach to wellness that does not push, over effort or force, but guides you towards your own capacity, cultivating the silent still mind that naturally occurs when you are more fully engaged with the moment to moment occurrences in movement and sensation. We emphasize a person centered approach to yoga, movement and the creativity of living to give you full access to your greatest potential at your own pace.

Rather then give you a mold to fit into, our way of practice gives you the time and space to meet yourself whole heartedly with love and kindness. Just where you are with interest and curiosity, to build strength, relieve stress and anxiety, and leave with a little more of who you are than when you came in.

Take your time to peruse our website, if you like what we offer in words, take a class and "feel the difference of soma". There is no greater way to know if this way of practice is for you other then experience. With 31 years of explorations and 20 years as a studio in Highland Park, NJ, our knowledge and practice holds a beautiful container for your deepest unfoldings. Extending presence by awakening somatic intelligence and embracing all aspects of the human experience. How we make meaning is more important than what we come to believe because how we make meaning creates what we believe.

Soma Center offers Embodied wellness, intelligence in movement, creativity and spirituality that is individual and undogmatic, you are your own best teacher".

Sometimes even the widest of chasms can be crossed with the beginning of a conversation and establishing a truly human connection. At Soma, we have a proud legacy of creating a space for transformative conversations for the body, mind and heart. We are grateful for all who continue to support our rebirth year after year! Thank you!!!

Any question big or small are welcome, call us! We love to talk live with you! Bobbie Ellis, Owner & Director of Soma Center, at 732.777.9642 or

Experience the substance of the body And the world As made up of vibrating particles And these particles mad up of even fine energies. Drifting more deeply, Feel into each pulse of energy As it condenses from infinity And dissolves back into it Continuously. Notice this, breathe easily With infinity dancing everywhere. Strong or soft, wild or serene - Wherever breath flows there is a song, Hear it's whisper touching behind the face, Singing in the throat, Dancing spirals in the sanctuary of the heart. In this practice of listening, A moment may come when you just want to lie down. This is the doorway - surrender. Fall into the wide open embrace of life. You are the instrument breath is playing. All the meditations you have ever loved Are vibrating in this luxurious hum, Continuing even in sleep and dreams. This is your school. Just you and infinity. The texture of the Self is untamed freedom. - Radiance sutra #31-32
