Vinyasa yoga with extra depth. This workshop will go beyond the merely physical to explore how we can go deeper into self-awareness through a dynamic yoga practice. We’ll be combining vinyasa practice with the Embodied Yoga Principles method.
The focus will be on personal insight and getting our yoga “off the mat” to help in the rest of our lives. The practice will be mostly dynamic, will also include some relaxing restorative elements, because hey, it’s on a Sunday 🙂
Led by experienced yoga teacher Luisa Demant and EYP founder Mark Walsh.
– The hidden depths of a dynamic practice
– How to use yoga to support your work, family life and friendships
– How to improve the self development aspect of a vinyasa practice
Please note: EYP can be quite emotionally intense so bear this in mind if you’ve had recent major life events, mental health issues or are just not in the best state right now.

Nice things people have said about Embodied Yoga:
“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
“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
“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 …”
– Ady, hatha yoga teacher, Brighton, UK
“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)

About the teachers
Luisa Demant started yoga to recharge her batteries and give her a break from a stressful job. Very soon she discovered that breath is an amazing tool to calm the mind and achieve body awareness. Her aim is to help people to make the most of yoga by connecting yoga postures with “real life” off the mat.
Mark Walsh is the founder of Embodied Yoga Principle and has been a practitioner of movements arts for twenty years, including several years as a full-time aikido student. His main yoga influences are Scaraveli, Yin and Buddhist inspired teachers. He founded and runs several organisations which bring embodiment into business, to aid workers in war zones, and trains yoga instructors and facilitators in twenty countries annually. he started EYP which is now catching on worldwide and leads a regular class in this in Brighton. His YouTube channel has over 10 Million hits and he’s now getting self conscious about boasting and talking about himself in the third person so will leave it there.
