About Me

I’m Irene Lyon.

I give YOU the Master Key to supercharged energy, unshakable confidence, and the antidote to stubborn health issues that you’ve tried everything to fix.

(Because as you work towards becoming that remarkable human being that is your birthright the last thing you need is burnout, an upper limit problem, depression, anxiety or other pesky health problems rearing their ugly heads.)

This Master Key also helps you to…

  • be remarkably productive in projects and tasks you do on any given day.
  • think and create with crystal-clear focus (instead of getting stuck in “brain fog”).
  • go to sleep peacefully and wake up rested in the morning.
  • excrete toxic waste products (um, poop!) with ease and frequency.
  • tap into that core, intuitive guidance and be more in the “flow.”
  • stay peaceful and calm during times of intense pressure (and deadlines).

Before I tell you more, let me say: I know you may have tried everything from green smoothies to hanging in the woods with shamans to get mind & body breakthroughs.

But… (I’m willing to bet)… you haven’t tried THIS.

I’m talking about going to the SOURCE of your energy, creativity, and all your physical, mental, and emotional processes…


To put it simply… the nervous system governs EVERYTHING.

An out-of-whack nervous system is the reason for problems like chronic fatigue, chronic pain, digestive troubles, depression, anxiety, and panic attacks. (That’s the short list.)

The good news? A regulated nervous system provides you with the energy, resources, and drive to do what you’re meant to do on the planet.

And that’s what I do with you. I help you regulate your nervous system so you can level up your entire life — in a way that supports your body and your purpose.

Who Am I & How Can I Help You?

I’ll tell ya this.

I’ve got credentials. Loads of them. (I’ll get to those in a sec.)

First, a quick summary…

My method comes down to a “scientuitive” perspective.

(Meaning: I use a blend of science, alternative therapies, and intuition to facilitate your body’s natural ability to heal itself.)

My first “apprenticeship” to the nervous system — where I honed my Jedi-like intuition — was through holding hundreds of animals while they were being euthanized or put under for surgery. (My dad is a veterinarian, so this was my after-school job. It’s a deeply delicate dance to hold a panic-stricken animal and help it to feel safe.)

The scientific part of my work is based in Somatic Experiencing and the Feldenkrais Method. (Read the full story of how I discovered this work here.)

For the past 10 years, I’ve helped everyone from Olympic athletes, to wheelchair-bound basketball players, to folks suffering from severe PTSD, to big-deal executives, to online stars.

I’ve seen my clients miraculously improve from back pain, knee pain, chronic pain, fear of public speaking, digestive issues, severe depression, anxiety, developmental trauma, shock trauma, ritual abuse, strokes, and head injuries. (Yet another short list!)

The best part? When they discover how working with this one system (the nervous system), leads to everything falling into place — and their entire lives change for the better.

Here Are Those Shiny Credentials…

  • I’m a certified Somatic Experiencing® (SE) practitioner. I started my SE studies in 2008 and I continue to grow this skill set today by attending and assisting at the Master Class levels which are exclusively taught by the founder of SE, Dr. Peter Levine. Master Class topics I’m well versed in include: working with near-death and anesthesia states; working with anger, depression, healthy aggression and life force energy; working with syndromal representations (such as autoimmune disorders) in conjunction with the polyvagal theory. I regularly mentor and offer consultation to my colleagues within the Somatic Experiencing practices.
  • I’ve studied extensively under Kathy Kain and Stephen Terrell within the body of work called Somatic Practice. I’ve completed the Touch Skills Training and Somatic Resilience and Regulation Training and have attended speciality workshops throughout the years. I maintain active communication with these stellar teachers to help further my learning and the learning of my mentees and clients.
  • I’ve studied the work of Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais, founder of The Feldenkrais Method. I’m a Feldenkrais Practitioner, and have gone through a 4-year intensive Professional Feldenkrais Teacher Training Program. I’ve taught public classes, built a private practice in Whistler, British Columbia, and even started a video documentation project dedicated to educating more people about the wonders of this work and how it is needed in the world. Dr. Feldenkrais’ principles around neuroplastic healing and awareness through movement play a massive part in my online teachings, in-person workshops and my own personal movement practices.
  • Finally, my early University foundations span between the year 1993 and 2008 wherein I studied exercise physiology, applied human nutrition, the biomedical and health sciences. I completed my Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology plus obtained certificates in fitness and nutrition in 2000 from Simon Fraser University (British Columbia, Canada). In 2008 I completed my Master of Science from the Research School of Health and Biomedical Science, University of Wollongong (New South Wales, Australia).
