A workshop with Mark Walsh to unlock these taboos and get more of whichever you need in your life. Using yoga postures we will explore our relationship to work, money, dating/relationships and making a powerful impact in the world.
– you’d like to improve your relationship to these things
– you’d like to earn more money, or have more great sex
– you’d like to have fun exploring and make some new friends (it’ll be safe, respectful and quite social)
Please note this is not a typical yoga workshop and will be a deep dive emotionally at times so please come well resourced (not hungover, well rested, etc).
Embodied Yoga uses asana practice for personal insight and to build skills for life. It helps with these questions:
– What can yoga teach me about myself and how I live?
– What matters most to me and how can yoga benefit this?
– What personal qualities would I like to develop through my yoga practice?
Embodied yoga emphasises discovering more about ourselves and improving our lives– rather than athleticism – and incorporates elements of life coaching, body therapy, meditation, dance and martial arts. Embodied yoga is politically aware and avoids both new-age superstition and Western body materialism. Embodied yoga can be emotionally intense as it’s a powerful tool for looking at your personal patterns and changing your life for the better, it’s also more social than most yoga and a lot of fun. In some ways it’s a very novel approach to yoga including things you won’t find anywhere else, though it’s also aligned with traditional yoga’s emphasis on developing the practitioner.

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)
