Whether we want to change the world, have healthy relationships or just feel good, self-care is fundamental. Because of how we’re raised and the challenges of everyday life, many of us struggle with this. As well as using the tools of yoga to facilitate self-care, we can also use the experience of practising yoga to explore some of our deeper patterns in this area creating the potential to make profound change in our daily lives.
In this workshop Clive and Mark will help you:
– rest and restore deeply
– learn restorative poses and practical tools you can use yourself at home and at work
– look at the deeper patterns and obstacles underlying lack of self-care
– explore how to integrate self-care conveniently and realistically in different aspects of your life
Nice things people have said about Embodied Yoga
“It brings rigorous self enquiry into my physical practice. It’s a way of bringing self study to life in practical and playful ways. EYP is adaptable, you can use it in simple ways to enhance a general yoga class and in a life changing way in longer workshops.” Amanda Brown, experienced Yoga Teacher Cornwall, UK”
‘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, Vinyasa yoga teacher, London
“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
“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
“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
