Polyvagal Practices & Biofield Therapy

Our nervous systems are just that – a system – in safety and connection! This means maintaining it is a dynamic process, that has many moving parts but simple in its application. Polyvagal Theory and Practices help us identify and manage our nervous system, so that it operates at the optimal level it is meant to, allowing us to feel confident, connected and flowing smoothly. Biofield Therapy (ie; Healing Touch & Reiki), is a non-invasive therapeutic modality that aids in the healing process.

Walk and Talk

Away from walls and screens, we step into the space that offers an opportunity for our natural recharge. This is the place of inspiration, guidance, clarity, ideas and re-connection, to a place our heart plays.

About Me

I would like to offer the pronunciation of my name; Onnika Rin

I moved to Squamish from Victoria in 2003, led by intuition, to experience the Advanced Wilderness Leadership Program offered by Capilano University (College then). I had full intentions of returning to the Island, had I not felt so at home here.

I pursued paths in a variety of disciplines and had fun along the way; self-propelled backcountry guiding, mechanized recreation guiding ie; jetski/snowmobile, first response, youth work/advocacy, wildland firefighting and a few others.

In 2009, I shifted away from youth advocacy, into wildland firefighting for 6 years, to finance both a discovery of physical capabilities and an education (Thompson Rivers University in ‘13). My efforts there were to learn and deeply understand our human psychology and neurology w/regard to the senses. From this knowledge I learned that delivering services from the perspective and process of coaching would best meet this intention. I enrolled in an ICF (International Coaching Federation) accredited academic life coaching program for youth in ‘15, which helped fine-tune core understandings and practices in personal development. In ’17 I began to enhance the coaching practice with the value of somatics and working with the wisdom of the body, creating Collaborative Coaching. My background in the helping profession has provided 19 years of experiential and contemporary education, that affords me a rich repertoire of experience and skill.

I practice with compassion and the wisdom acquired from growth post-trauma. I bring great empathy to the losses in life and dedicate myself to continual education and integration. 

It is my honour and joy to serve others, with the  wisdom that I’ve received from the land, the people and experiences of Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish Nation) and surrounding area. The place I call home. 

With appreciation & respect,
Anneke Ryn
