Embodied Yoga Principles develops awareness
Embodied Yoga Principles emphasises psychological self-awareness and transfer of skills to daily-life. EYP is mindfulness-based and incorporates elements of life coaching, body therapy, dance, bodywork, improv. and martial arts. Postures and group exercises are used to explore and develop the body as a way of being, integral to how we live. EYP is about improving personal freedom, the relationships that matter most in our lives, and effectiveness in making the world a better place.
Embodied yoga is socially 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. EYP is also more social and playful than much yoga, so is also very connecting and lots of fun.
In some ways EYP a very novel approach to asana practice including things you won’t find literally anywhere else, though it’s also aligned with traditional yoga’s emphasis on developing the practitioner. Because Embodied Yoga is a set of principles rather than a style, it can add a new dimension to any approach to practice and be used creatively.
Embodied Yoga Principles is receiving exposure in magazines and international Yoga festivals. You can see our blog for more information.
