Pleasure is Aliveness
But sometimes life takes a turn that causes us to lose the connection to our vitality.
Coming Home is a foundational course in SomaBody Pleasure Work® that can help you find your way back to yourself, heal your relationship to pleasure and connect with an authentic sexual expression that feels deeply nourishing to you.
WELCOME! I AM NISCHA PHAIR
Researcher & Educator
I'm a researcher, educator and the founder and director of SomaBody Pleasure Work®.
I've been a trauma-informed teacher, facilitator and coach for 14 years and have held space for the growth of over 2200 students and clients in that time.
I have a 20+ year background in movement and well-being education, contemplative practice, dance and Somatics. I'm also guided by my training as a Somatic Therapist (2021), graduate research in Somatics and nervous system re-patterning, and my own lifelong journey in healing trauma.
There's no such thing as a one-size-fits-all approach to sex. Instead, I support clients to create a nourishing, empowered and "authentic-to-you" relationship with their sexuality. I work with survivors and those who identify as sensitive but have also supported clients through issues related to attachment trauma, well-being, fertility & grief.

WHY THIS WORK IS DIFFERENT
UNDERSTANDING YOURSELF THROUGH YOUR BODY
I'VE BEEN THERE
I know what it's like to be on the edge, wanting to take the leap into this work but feeling tentative and skeptical about some of the options available.
I also know that there is no one-size-fits all approach to sex and pleasure work. So, I've done everything in my power to make this program accessible, enjoyable and personalized to your specific needs and goals.
YOU DESERVE GENTLENESS IN YOUR PROCESS
Most of us were rushed to grow up and didn't get to be in charge of how we matured. We weren't adequately educated and may have even been forced into situations we didn't want to be in.
This course aims to nourish the parts of you that weren't met with gentleness when they needed it most. You'll get to set the pace and choose your own adventure throughout, exploring pleasure as an authentic and self-directed embodied experience.
It's common to feel a strong pull to do this work while also feeling intimidated. This is deep stuff so it's important to honor the tender parts. And you don't have to go through it alone.
The balance of independent practice with 1:1 coaching provides a safe, consistent container of support while you explore your relationship to pleasure.
WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING
Hear from some of my clients
After baby, I felt like I lost all connection to my body and it's been such a relief to start to feel sensual again. I'm truly amazed by what I'm learning and how much growth I get from each session. I feel way more confident and secure in my relationship and our sex life is starting to feel fun again. Her exercises are game changers and so easy to work into my daily routine.
I was so nervous about starting to do this work but after my last breakup I knew I couldn't avoid it anymore. I had a bad experience with another course so my guard was up but Nischa has such a calm and compassionate way that it feels almost effortless. I feel safer and more empowered in my body than I ever imagined possible. She is a literal godsend. Thank you!
I love that I'm getting to create my own, unique relationship with my sexuality instead of just doing what's socially expected. As a trauma survivor, sex has always been a bit unpredictable for me and I was really scared to start coaching but the process has been so eye-opening and so healing. I feel like I'm finally coming into my own.
