What people are saying about You’ve Got the Power! 

Lavinia Plonka has brought together wisdom and techniques from her decades as an acclaimed teacher and avid student in the realms exploring the body/mind connection. You’ve Got the Power! is a guide to understanding what gets in the way of your power and how to harness powers you didn’t know you had.

Gretta Keene, author of Your Way There To Being Fully Alive: Concepts and Tools for Mindful Transformation

Lavinia Plonka has always written books that make a strong case for paying attention – to our bodies and how we engage with them.   In You’ve Got the Power she does it again – leading us into the territory of classic human behaviour at its height – archetypes – and how to find these parts of ourselves through engaging in body awareness and movement.  Read it – it can change your life.

Martha Eddy, author of Mindful Movement

Somatics is the art and science of bringing your soul home to your body.  Lavinia is at the forefront of somatics, which means she is pioneering new possibilities for moving, breathing, and savoring life to the fullest while marrying this body wisdom with knowledge of the archetypal, energetic, and spiritual dimensions of our nature.  She’s brilliant, wise, and her book invites you into an expanded reality for embodied life.

Stephen Dinan, CEO, The Shift Network

Lavinia is a gifted writer/teacher who has the rare ability to synthesize ancient wisdom with modern natural and social science theories for the purposes of exploring movement, emotions, self-awareness and self-development. She seamlessly integrates stories with movement lessons, and gently reminds us that we have the power within us to be remarkable, expressive, creative, and brave.
