Simple is Profound: MNRI® Reflex Integration
During this 8-week program we will explore how our primary reflexes lay the foundation for survival. These reflexes govern our ‘fight and flight’ and ‘freeze” response. By working with this ancient code, we will explore how we can find safety in our bodies and quiet down our nervous system. Once we quiet down our survival response, we will explore additional reflexes that allow freedom in our body to experience the ‘here and now’ and joy.
You will learn practical tools and exercises from the Masgutova Method to help your body and the clients you work with become more stress resilient.

Meet our MNRI® team that will be leading you through this 8-week series:
Pamela Curlee is the Co-Founder of the Svetlana Masgutova Educational Institute. She has helped instruct and oversee the growth and development of the MNRI Core Specialist Program and MNRI Instructor Program. She comes with a depth of knowledge and a heart full of love.
Isabelle Renard-Fontaine is an MNRI Core Specialist and Instructor who has been highly dedicated to the development of the MNRI Method. Led by her passion for babies and children, she has devoted her most remarkable energy to Early Intervention and Neurodevelopment. One of her priorities is to support newborns with trauma recovery from birth and premature infants and their families from hospitalization in the neonatal intensive care unit. Her continuous enthusiasm while working and teaching is inspiring.
Heather Taylor is an MNRI Core Specialist and regularly hosts the online MNRI Stress and Trauma Recovery Course. As an occupational therapist working in the same school district for 12 years, she had the unique opportunity to observe positive changes in their stress resilience before and after implementing MNRI techniques into her sessions. Many of these children had high ACE scores due to living in a rural, low-income, underserved area with few options for quality mental health services. Heather has dedicated her life to helping others release stress from their body and mind and recognize the innate strength and abilities they have within themselves.
Rebekah LaVone is also an MNRI Core Specialist and Instructor. She has spent time locally, nationally, and internationally supporting those who work with complex trauma. Her area of interest and specialty is working with trafficking survivors.
