Irene Lyon, MSC. and nervous system expert, teaches people around the world how to work with the nervous system to transform trauma, heal body and mind, and live full, creative lives.
To date, her online work has reached people in over 57 countries – but you can often find her teaching with Elia Mrak at their signature Up & Down workshops or hiking in the mountains or along the Pacific ocean in her hometown of Vancouver, British Columbia.
She has her Master’s in Biomedical and Health Science and also has a knack for making complex info easy for ALL of us to understand and apply to our lives. She has extensively studied and practices the works of Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais, Peter Levine (founder of Somatic Experiencing) and Kathy Kain (founder of Somatic Practice).

Irene helps people work through toxic shame, anxiety, and depression (just to name a few) by teaching her students the non-dumbed down science of their bodies. Research, which is thankfully becoming theory, is telling us that trapped and unresolved survival stress, those fight, flight, and freeze response (aka: untreated early and developmental trauma) are the root cause of many, if not all, chronic health issues of the body and mind.
Irene's mission is to teach the world this essential education along with the practices that will give people the tools to become their own medicine so they can break free from dis-ease and get back to living with vitality and freedom. She has two online programs (The 21-Day Nervous System Tune-Up and SmartBody SmartMind) that have reached thousands of people in over 60 countries and her participants unequivocally say this has been the missing link in healing for them. She also teaches in-person workshops that focus on recapturing our sense of curiosity and play via intention-based movement.
