Julia Yanker find yourself in a place of
Somatic Coaching for Adventurous, Outdoorsy-types

You've entered a place where adventurers come to find healing after a stress injury/traumatic incident in the outdoors.

Playing outside, we all encounter setbacks - both physical and mental - and sometimes, we need a trusted partner to accomplish our chosen objective. 

Our objectives change with the seasons of nature, and our own internal rhythms. Sometimes we are pushing hard and crushing our biggest goals for ourselves. At other times, feeling lackluster, we stand over our accumulated pile of gear and think, "Why am I even doing this? This isn't fun anymore."


If your current objective is recovering your stoke for adventure, or reclaiming your mental edge and sense of vitality, you have come to the right place. 


Oftentimes, we come to this low moment after some sort of mishap - whether seemingly benign or massively tragic - a spectrum running the gamut from taking a small fall that doesn't even involve injury, or a scary swim to perhaps involving loss of life or serious injury and consequences for yourself.  



I’m Julia Yanker - freedom facilitator and wild woman; a born contrarian and rebel (some have even called me an iconoclast), adventurologist, midwife of transformation, and lover of nature. 


This love has led me on many an adventure, via many modes of travel. Being a young, horse-crazy girl led me to working with horses professionally (3-day eventing, ranching, and wrangling). As a young adult, my love for the wilderness and exploring all its nooks and crannies left my wallet empty, but my gear room full of gear for canyoneering, rock/ice climbing, skiing, whitewater boating, dirt biking, wild ice skating, camping, and backpacking.


All the while, another passion of mine filled dark evenings and rainy weekends: I endeavored to tame the monkey of my mind through mindfulness teachings, meditation, and psychological study. Eventually, this led me to the life's work of Dr. Peter Levine, who pioneered the highly effective method of trauma resolution called Somatic Experiencing. Trained in this technique, I now am honored to call this my life's work as well: helping people heal from the effects of traumatic experiences so they can be happy, healthy, and whole; living life untethered from the life-energy-sucking symptoms of trauma or stress injury. 


Interested to learn what life untethered looks like for you?
