Lead tutor: Mark Walsh (originator of Embodied Yoga Principles), plus guest assistants
Embodied Yoga Principles is a pragmatic way of making yoga more meaningful and relevant to our daily lives. This workshop will be particularly useful for yoga teachers, teachers, therapists, coaches, and of course yoga practitioners who have a basic grounding in posture work. This is not a typical yoga workshop – expect to be inspired and gain some (possibly deep) insights into your own physical/psychological patterns, but in the process expect to be challenged. The day will include sharing experiences with others, group work and partner work.
We don’t recommend signing up for this workshop if you have acute mental health issues or are in the middle of a highly emotional situation such as bereavement or divorce. If in doubt, please contact us.

Nice things people have said about Embodied Yoga:
“Embodied Yoga is a refreshing take on yoga as a method of self-enquiry and transformation. Highly effective for transforming your patterns of behaviour.” – Sindre, Oslo, Norway
“Yoga offers us the potential to change but it can be a long and haphazard process, particularly when we lead busy lives. EYP makes the most of opportunities to engage with the psychogeography of the internal landscape and has given me many creative tools to engage more dynamically with what I am expressing through my body and how that manifests in my relationship with myself and others. Mark Walsh has used his extensive experience to develop an intelligent, focused, safe and effective framework in which to challenge, deepen and nurture our experiences on and off the mat.” – Amanda Brown, yoga teacher of 25 years, Cornwall
‘I’d been questioning a lot about the yoga scene in general, as well as what I’m teaching. The EYP weekend has left me inspired and thoughtful. I suspect it could lead to a whole new direction!’ – Catherine O’Mahony, Vinyassa yoga teacher, London
“Mark has pressed the refresh button on the yoga world to see the practice of yoga through the eyes of embodiment brings a welcome new view .The methods of embodiment link the practice on the yoga mat and brings it firmly out into the world of our relationships,work and all aspects of life…and extends our range of practices as yoga teachers …” – hatha yoga teacher, Brighton, UK
“Embodied Yoga offers a much needed fresh authentic perspective on yoga. Its not offering an opportunity to float off into spiritual la-la and distance oneself from life’s suffering, on the contrary it encourages the participant to become fully aware and to take responsibility for what is going on in their body and mind, becoming aware of patterns and shadows in a safe supported environment.” – Jane D, Sussex UK
“Being encouraged to notice how I approached practice, and how I related to others during the class reflected unhelpful patterns and stories that I recognised play out in my in my life outside the studio, and are limiting me. Powerfully insightful.” – Holly, hot yoga practitioner, Brighton, UK
“It was wonderful to see more holistic approach to yoga being presented during EYP course. I was enjoying the possibility to inquire about the patterns and limitations within oneslef when doing asanas. I think Mark is bringing back some very essential elements of yoga within EYP, which are internal growth, body-mind connection and service for the World.” “Ilze Jēče, Latvia”
“Mark is a jerk and can’t even get his foot behind his head and he barely has any Instagram followers” – Mr Bicram, LA, USA (…OK, we made this one up, but the rest are real)
