We're made to move.

 

Movement is not only key to our physical vitality & longevity, it's also how we're wired to process life experience for mental & emotional health.

Embodied practices have exploded in popularity in the past decades! Fitness evolved from endurance to strength training to group classes only in the last 40-50 years. In the last 10-30 years the growth has been exponential: aerobics, dance, yoga, pilates, creative fitness (especially non-linear & natural movement), somatics, ecstatic dance, acroyoga, flow arts, circus arts & more...!

Join the *Free* Evolution of Embodied Practice virtual yoga retreat to learn why this all makes sense:

 

 

You'll learn why & how...

 

Movement variety is medicine for an increasingly sedentary, technological world, while mindful movement is medicine for the epidemics of stress, overstimulation & rising mental health challenges we see today.

Regular embodied practice is a tool of living yoga that brings us home in our body, mind & heart, connects us to our authentic selves & builds inner+outer resilience so we can show up with confidence, grace & joy in our lives.

 

Standard approaches to embodied practices are evolving to better nurture movement integrity & longevity, expand accessibility, honor human diversity, maximize benefit, minimize harm & honor Nature's intelligence within our body's design. 

 

Update your practice or teaching for the new paradigms of body+mind science, in alignment with Nature & with the origins of asana & vinyasa.

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 techniques & renewed childlike wonder.

If you’re here you get it. 

Movement is medicine for the body, mind & soul.

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

If you’re reading this, you may already instinctively agree. I can't wait to share some of the ways we're learning to make it even better. I hope you'll join me for the Evolution of Embodied Practice!

We're all in this together.

See you there!
