"Thank YOU for a wonderful class and for continuing to offer
your classes to our small group. I’ve gotten so much from
working with you, both privately and in class. Thank you!"
Janet, JD, PhD, Los Angeles
"Thank you for the somatic bootcamp! I so enjoyed being in
the class and getting to know you and your ways even more.
You are a gifted teacher and visioner and feeler/knower of
what is needed."
Julie Coren, Writer & Somatic Educator, L.A.
"In just four sessions with Teri I noticed subtle yet powerful
shifts in my own ability to self regulate and internally sense.
After fifteen years of chronic migraines my nervous system has
been overly sensitive, yet frozen. Teri's work helped me to be
able to sense, for the first time in my life, the effect that long
term migraines have had on my nervous system and begin the
process of understanding the tools I need to be in charge of my
Ashley Johnson, Dance Artist and Educator, Canada
"Teri's classes are amazing! I leave feeling not only
restored, but also grateful for a new way of thinking and
experiencing my body's potential. Moving beyond
conventional exercise, I am learning to experience deep
relaxation and healing through effortless, flowing
movement. I am convinced Teri's teaching and movement
practice will help me resist the aging process. I could not
be handling the stresses in my everyday life with serious
family member's illness without this new type of somatic

"Teri, you have a natural ability to see the bigger picture of a
health situation... I truly appreciate your process because it
produces results that are tangible. Your hands-on body
therapies and Somatic Movement education has been more
effective than the allopathic methods I’ve tried... My left ear was
totally blocked, so my hearing was marginalized. When I went
to a radiologist, an ear nose and throat doctor, and a general M.
D.... they all said the hearing loss was a residue of the chemo
that I’d undergone. Each doctor wrote it off as though it was a
complication I just had to live with... Your proactive process has
empowered me to better understand a holistic relationship of
my health issue, with a positive outlook and ways to implement
a self-healing process. It's great to hear again!"...
Richard Corwin, Event Producer & Emmy Award Winning
Supervising Sound Editor
|As a Reiki Master I am well versed, well acquainted with
healing in the body and a oneness in the Universe, with all
things. In the SOMATIC workshop with Teri I experience a
deepening of this truth to levels that are new and unexplored
within me. I have done a lot of release work and much
personal healing and yet, in this venue, I find I can go much
further on my own healing path.
Eva Montealegre, Reiki Instructor Los Angeles
"Teri has a presence that invites you to unfold. She
combines that with an intellectual capacity that integrates
the experience. You leave her workshops feeling
Laura - Marriage and Family Therapist,
"I've been speed skating, bmxing, climbing and jumping off
buildings since I could count. And I have stories, scars,
stitches and some tweaks in my body to prove it. I have
experienced many modalities of healing, yet none as built upon
both client and practitioner understanding and working with the
body. And the effects of this partnership in work with Teri can
be felt. Not only is there the calm and restful state of being
touched and worked on by a professional, but I also left feeling
independent and more able to treat myself. I will certainly
return to delve deeper."
Patrick Miller, "Extreme Athlete", So Africa
"Teri, your class continues to amaze me and I'm really
grateful for it. I can read Pema Chodron or David R. Hawkins
or whom or whatever all day with sincerity until the cows
come home, but I don't ever learn anything. For me books
are very useful to reflect into after having experience, but not
so much before. Experience trumps knowledge (someone
has said that) and your class is a wealth."
Z, Administrative Assistant, Los Angeles
“Teri Carter is extremely patient, caring and skillful, and my
sessions with her went beyond “body work therapy”. She
balanced, relaxed and energized my mind and body, leaving
me with a sense of calm, happiness and freedom from pain
and discomfort. Working with her was centering and
transcendental. She is not only a gifted practitioner, she is a
teacher, and the lessons learned while working with her will be
used throughout my lifetime. Bless you Teri Carter!”
Jaime Nicolaisen, Composer and Teacher“
"Guiding us deeper and deeper inward, then further and
further outward, Teri's precisely guided exploration of
internal body-mind experience in relation to the seemingly
external field opened me to pure Awareness. We also went
outdoors to look at a plant. Because of her guidance, it was
almost possible to sense the molecules of the plant
Judith Rivin, LCSW, Los Angeles
"After one session with Teri, a nagging migraine headache
was gone. Quite a relief from more than 6 days of debilitating
pain. I'm so relieved!"
Meg Patterson, Richmond, Virginia
Thank you for the revelatory experience that today's
workshop provided for me. I don't remember ever being so
present both in mind and body as I was today. I hope that I
will be able to incorporate that into my life on a regular basis.
Judith G, Zero Balance Practitioner, Los Angeles
Erika had carpal tunnel restriction...
"MY HAND! MY HAND! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU,
Teri. My right hand has changed!
I feel silly that I never realized that the 'natural' shape my right
hand was in, was not natural at all. You know how my hand
kind of folded and pulled in in the middle and how I had this
bulge below my right thumb, with lots right thumb is gone and
the tissue is soft and
pliable, not stiff and stuck. MIRACLE!!!! Also, the hand is more
flush with the wrist and the wrist more flush with the forearm.
You're a miracle lady. I'm SOOOO happy! I will see you next
week.....I'd like to spend a little more time on
exercises/movements I can do at home for my hand. NO
SURGERY for me!"
Erika, Executive Asst, Los Angeles
“Working with Teri has brought me a new dimension in body
awareness. No longer just the repository for a lifetime of
illness, injury and trauma. Teri is a gifted therapist/coach,
practitioner and teacher. I am grateful to be working with her”…
Jann, NonProfit Exec. Director,Baltimore, MD
Thank you so much for your the beautiful experience last
Saturday. Your Inhabiting the World of Horses workshop
was unlike anything I have ever experienced before! In this
tumultuous world we live in you provided us with a space of
pure grounding and involvement with these elegant
creatures. A space where we could drop down deep into our
own inner resources and feel one with all that is. These
animals are so pure in heart, so connected to all that is
around them that one cannot help but feel it also. You and
Brenda guided us so gently into the horse’s environment
and alleviated all fears we may have had. You gave us
practical advice on how to claim our own space with them
and then allowed us to enter that world that is theirs and
ours to claim. That day will be with me...is part of me now. I
have found myself going back to the horses often in my
mind with great peace and pleasure. I long to be with the
horses again as if they are old and ancient friends of mine.
Thank you again Teri for opening up that place for me.
So much Love to You,
Ellen Lane, Artist, Topanga, CA
"Teri has coached me in Somatic Movement for nearly 2
decades, and it has changed my life. As a person who uses a
wheelchair, I function so well and am able to maintain a
positive attitude, in meeting the joys and challenges of my life.
Kumhee, Actor/Writer, NYC
"Teri is the only practitioner who has been able to truly help me
when debilitating migraine headaches hit me. The stress of
running my own business in the Eco-Industry can trigger my
long-time tendency toward stress. Plus, I'm learning to change
the way I deal with the stress!
Peter, Windmill Energy Developer, Vermont
"I've been attending Teri's classes for several years. She is
a fantastic teacher! She has helped me develop a deep
level of communication with my body, enabling me to find
substantial relief from chronic pain and tension and giving
me confidence in my body's ability to repair and rejuvenate
itself. Besides her thorough understanding of Continuum,
she incorporates a vast knowledge of other somatic
practices and Toaist martial arts practices and makes it all
relevant and accessible. She explains difficult concepts
clearly and has a wonderful ability to tune into students to
help them with their individual needs."
Linda B., Attorney, Los Angeles
