"Authenticity in mo(ve)ment"
Embodied Flow™ workshop with Satu Tuomela
Where lies the Embodied Intelligence? Give up most control. Let go of the brain controlling the movement. Don`t think. Just Feel, Listen and reflect from your surroundings and from you inner guidance. The fascia, The information web, is there in the in-betweens of our tissues to support this and to enable the movements to have more grace and fluidity. Find more space inside, more space to be yourself and from that more authenticity in mo(ve)ment.
Embodied Flow™- Discovering your three dimensional self
Embodied Flow™ is a continuum of movement and expression that draws from the discoveries of various hatha, tantric and somatic movement systems in order to experience yoga as a living art form. Embodied Flow™ provides the technology for a deep sense of ease, strength and connectivity in the human form. This in turn, empowers the practitioner to be their own greatest teacher as they expand, integrate and facilitate awareness in their entire body-mind.
Come and explore a yoga practice that integrates the biomechanics and alignment of Anusara with the philosophy of Tantra, embodiment practices inspired by Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen, somatic psychology, and numerous other modalities.
Madhya- Embodied Yin
Even when we do not "move" at all there is movement, shifts and breakthroughs. It is a skill to be fully embodied also in the in-betweens when we sit with the "not anymore" and the "not yet". We practice to stay and live in the In-between of birth and death (life), in-between of heaven and earth (your body), in-between your ever unmoving center and the ever moving periphery (NOW), In-between your thoughts (spirit, peace) etc. To Embody it all is the path to Awakening.
