Center for Whole Body Wellness
People say that what we're all seeking is a meaning for life. I don't think that's what we're really seeking. I think that what we're seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonances within our own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive.
- Joseph Campbell
My name is Natasha Cottingham, and I am the owner and primary practitioner of Center for Whole Body Wellness. I view the body as a valuable tool for understanding and discovering who we are. I began The Center for Whole Body Wellness shortly after graduating from The SOMA Institute in 2000.
I gravitated towards SOMA because of a personal injury where my back was feeling like steel at the young age of twenty-one. I felt like I had aged three times my actual age in a short period of time. I have always been extremely active; dancing, yoga, biking, walking so when this began to happen to my physicality I panicked and worried about my condition becoming worse. I was fortunate to come across someone who had already been through the SOMA series and experienced positive and dramatic results.
I am now integrating my experience and knowledge of the body as a Soma Practitioner in Bellevue at Kinese studios. I am continuously amazed and in awe by what Soma makes possible for my clients. Soma is one of the best tools for recovering from many injuries - emotional, mental, spiritual and physical. I am committed to give my clients a safe, nurturing, and therapeutic space to make the changes they want to make in their life.
