WHAT IS CENTRD LIFE?
We’re a community and resource for all things related to emotional health and embodiment. We offer workshops, retreats and self-study workbooks to help you connect with your authentic self and find your centre.
WHAT IS EMOTIONAL HEALTH?
Emotional health is our ability to identify, understand, and regulate our emotions. It’s the ability to experience our emotions fully without being overwhelmed or overpowered by them. It means feeling all the feels, good, bad, and everything in between, knowing that your emotions come and go, and we can handle it all.
Our bodies give us direct access to understand and feel our emotions, as well as giving us the quickest way to change our moods and behaviours. Have you ever felt irritable and realized you were just hungry, or very sad and realized you just needed to sleep? Being aware of your body impacting your emotions is embodied awareness. Embodiment enriches our everyday lives, improves our mental health, and betters our relationships.
OUR AIMS & OBJECTIVES
At Centrd Life, we are passionate about spreading the word on the importance of embodied awareness, embodied learning and leadership. We aim to offer you practical tools to use in your everyday life to help you on a journey of becoming more integrated and authentic. Embodiment should be accessible and affordable to all and with that in mind we aim to create an open source community and support network.
WHAT ARE OUR VALUES?
We are curious about ourselves, we want to learn more about our emotions and behaviors. We are curious about the person we can become, and the journey that takes us there.
We show compassion towards ourselves and others.
We coach from a place of non-judgment and love.
We support each other unconditionally, and help each other cultivate what we need to grow. We support ourselves so that others can lean on us.
We recognise that no two journeys look exactly alike. We use language and methodology that are welcoming and accessible to everyone.
We understand that we have agency over our own lives, and we have to make changes to become who we want to be. We see the beauty in changes and embrace it, even if we are afraid.
MEET OUR FOUNDER…
I’ve always struggled to connect with my feelings. Movement has always been my passion; it has helped me with my endless need to articulate without worrying about language barriers or being misunderstood. I’ve tried so many things to better understand my emotions–conventional therapy, coaching, shamanic practices, spirituality, yoga, meditation, retreats, mindset change, self-development books, everything–but nothing gave me the breakthrough I thought I needed until I started learning about embodiment.
Through embodied practices, I have learnt to identify and manage my emotions, to express myself authentically, and to deepen my relationships.
I am passionate about sharing these experiences with others: I want to offer people the tools to allow themselves and develop the capacity to feel all their emotions fully so they can connect to each other more deeply. I believe that embodiment is the tool that can change our disconnected world: by becoming more embodied we are more connected to ourselves, to each other and to nature.

Our small and dedicated team are passionate about Centrd Life’s mission, which is what makes them so great! You can read more about them here:
Leila Williams – Tech & Website Manager
For me, emotional health goes hand in hand with self-acceptance, an understanding that feelings pass and I’m good enough, just as I am.
Alongside managing the Centrd Life website, I take care of our lovely mailing list and can often be found editing video content.
When not at my desk, I’m mostly likely to be singing and dancing in my kitchen, pottering about in my garden or playing with my nieces & nephews.
Ocean Costelloe – Operations Manager
For me, embodiment is my tool for staying connected with myself and those around me, to make sure my actions come from a grounded, authentic place.
At Centrd Life, I make sure things get done when they need to get done and empower the team with the resources they need to do their best work.
You’ll find me on my yoga mat everyday or dancing like nobody’s watching.
