Here’s What Students & Teachers Are Saying About Richard Strozzi-Heckler...

“To relax into full learning mode as a student is a true delight.”

As someone whose life passion is teaching and learning, I am grateful and appreciative beyond words to have Richard as a teacher of such extraordinary calibre.... To have a level of trust to be able to relax into full learning mode as a student is a true delight.

Strozzi Institute is the founding home for somatics.

– Amanda Blake, Master Somatic Coach & Author, Your Body is Your Brain

“...helped transform my relationship to yearning...”

[Richard led] a physical experience of my deep yearning — and that yearning itself is a source in the mystery. To feel this in my heart center, solar plexus and belly — each at different times — helped transform my relationship to yearning from one of vulnerability and shame to one of exultation.

– James Shaffer
