You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.

We will explore how to ALIGN

Ancient teachings + modern science

Bottom-up rather than top-down embodied practice

Bio-motional architecture shaping itself through movement

Variety & uniqueness within principles of Nature 

Optimal organic movement for injury resilience

Belonging & purpose

Self-study as deep self-care

Flow states & yoga as a state of being
Values of curiosity, play & creating 
options over perfection in embodied practice

Decolonization & agency from within, rather than supremacy from without

...through embodied practice, so that we can impact the greatest positive change in the world.

Intelligence is present everywhere in our bodies . . . our own inner intelligence is far superior to any we can try to substitute from the outside. 
~ Deepak Chopra

Embodiment is our superpower.

Embodied practices have exploded in popularity in the past decades, and for good reason.

Mindful movement, breath and awareness to the present moment sensation and flow are how we're wired to balance the whole of what it means to be human.

Embodied practices lead us to ourselves, forging the pathways of connection between body-mind-heart-values-voice and living our purpose. Though not the only way, they may be the most accessible and effective, impacting every other element of our experience of life. 

Trouble is, far too many methods of embodied practice are not truly aligned... are yours? 

How do you know? 

Join ALIGN to investigate where we can learn, grow and improve alignment with our own body, mind, soul. 

Join ALIGN to explore how we can use embodied practices to better align with Nature, belonging to each other, and the changes the world needs right now.

Much more of the brain is devoted to movement than to language.
Language is only a little thing sitting on top of this huge ocean of movement.

A note from Michelle...

After a complex and challenging journey through body breakdown...

I learned (the hard way!) how precious it is to reclaim embodied practice with deepened understanding of bodymind science, humble reverence to ancient teachings & renewed childlike wonder.

Embodied practices align us daily with our authentic self, infusing purpose, strength and awareness into our days.

Embodied practices connect us to our inner wisdom and vital energy. It's how we renew our grasp on our lives, our health, and our future.

Embodied practices and living yoga have saved me more times than you can imagine.

Movement is medicine for the body, mind & soul.

The potency of mindful embodied practice has the power to change the world.

If you’re here you get it. 

I can't wait to share a life-changing exploration of how we ALIGN through embodied practice at this event. 

We're all in this together.

See you there!

Pessimism is a luxury for a less urgent time.
Now is a time for vigorous and positive action.
