She started with Rolfing, a kind of holistic version of physical therapy. Then, she started exploring somatic therapy and sensation-based meditation. As she got more serious about each of those practices, she took an even more personal approach, offering Rolfing, Realization Process, and embodied coaching through a private practice.
In 2014, Brooke took it a step further. She kicked off a podcast, Liberated Body, both to share her own knowledge and to have a platform where she could talk to somatic thought leaders. “It ran for about three years, and it was really about the ways that we can make our bodies function better.”
The podcast expanded her network. She met, spoke with, and learned from a greater variety of people, from surgeons and researchers to yoga teachers and fitness professionals. And each of them wanted to answer the question, “What is a body?”
The query didn’t just surprise her. But it did shift her mindset. “It was a question I had never really thought to ask. I had been in practice for so many years at that point, but it really changed me.”
