The Evolution of Embodied Practice Virtual Yoga Retreat
will teach you how to cultivate connection, freedom, healing & integration -in your body, mind, heart & life- through whatever kind of movement you already LOVE!
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!
