Beyond nice - an online workshop

Embodying what you stand for… and what you won’t

March 19, 2020

We all know intellectually that we should stand up for what we believe, say no to what we don’t want and ask for what we would like.

Yet…and it’s a biggie, many of us can’t always embody this, and revert to habitually “nice” behaviours.


How to say no without feeling terrible or breaking relationships
How to stand up for what you believe with strong loving presence
How to be focused and clear about your needs
How to ask for what you want across different areas of your life without feeling guilty
How to be strong AND loving
Deeper awareness of your own embodiment and connection to yourself

8 Online EYP classes

Linking postural yoga to what matters most to you

Yoga is clearly helpful for wellbeing and a positive influence on our life. We can maximise this impact and make stronger links between our asana practice and our work, relationships and family.

These weekly 1 hour classes are about increasing the effectiveness of how you get yoga “off the mat” and making it impactful for what you most care about. This is yoga for your whole life not just your muscles.

Embodied Yoga Principles Teacher Training - Brighton UK

5 day training 13 May - 17 May

May 12, 2020

The EYP teacher training is a well-structured, intense, pragmatic, 5 day immersion into Embodied Yoga for people wishing to grow personally and use EYP professionally. You may be interested in EYP teacher trainings for one or more of several reasons.

Come if you'd like :

  • a deep dive into self-awareness and personal growth 

  • to develop new aspects of your yoga practice & teaching, that's deep yet practical 

  • to use elements of EYP to psychologically enrich your own yoga classes and help students get their learning "off the mat"

  • to teach dedicated EYP classes

  • to join a supportive dynamic international community 

  • to learn postures that can be used as part of coaching & training outside of yoga 

  • to have fun learning something new and unique

It consists of five days, some pre-coursework (mostly watching videos) and personal practice afterwards if you wish to officially qualify. The training is as much about developing as a person as it is about picking up new techniques and the principles themselves, so you can practice EYP in your own creative way. 

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. The training is not to be taken lightly as involves some work and much personal challenge. It will be deep, fun, personally and professionally enriching, but not all easy. 

It is taught by EYP founder Mark Walsh, with Vidyadasas and Tess Howell and senior EYP teachers supporting.
