Embodied Yoga Immersion

This week of yoga & movement exploration, is an education in your body, from a felt sense of you. On an informative level, you will experience anatomy in a precise, clear and life changing way. On an experiential level, you will immerse yourself in the  philosophy and practice of embodiment. Focusing on personal practice at a depth that is uncommon in drop-in yoga classes, it will be an opportunity to come together in community, and discover what embodied yoga practice is. More importantly, you will feel what it feels like and how that can reverberates through your body and life.

  • Integrate organic movement with traditional yoga

Embodied Yoga Philosophy

When we say embodied, we mean feeling. The shapes or exercises are not the goal themselves, but a means to develop focus and become more perceptive to our nature. We ask you to bring your full being to your yoga practice. We ask you to turn off phones and screens and sit quietly, so you develop the ears to listen in. We will ask you to strip back your movement and focus on your breath, so you become more sensitive to your perceptions. We will show you bones and let you touch them, so you can visualise within. We will ask you to inquire, experiment, and share your findings. We will give you space to dance, explore, play and sit in nature, to get out of your head and into your body. You will make shapes that challenge you, flow through sequences that unwind you, play with movements that feel delicious to you, and others that will bring healing, growth and inspiration.

Whether your yoga practice has been fast and dynamic, or slow and subtle, there is space in the practices to deepen, strengthen and expand your practice, because the challenges are led by your own exploration, your own energetic investment, and the space to play within.
