Description

Embodying Elements is a 5-day movement training where you’ll dive into your body and explore the depths of sensation, feeling, and action through the elements of air, fire, water and earth.


I’m very excited to be offering Embodying Elements, a 5-day body movement immersion dedicated to exploring movement from different aspects of the body.

Over the last 2 years I’ve taught and other movement workshops all around the world, and there is a common theme that keeps popping up … the desire for more … more movement, more variety, more depth, more freedom, more space and more time to explore.

This immersion is designed to do just to that. We’ll explore the concept of “more” in your body and see how your body wishes to move, open and transform. We’ll also take the concept of “more” beyond the body movement, and you’ll have the opportunity to focus on what more you wish to create in your life.

USING THE ELEMENTS AS A WAY TO ACTIVATE “MORE”
I’ve chosen to work with the Elements because all the extra and “more” things you want in life can be found in and through them. Whether you wish for more flow, more action, more creativity, more space, more ideas, more collaborations, more opportunities, more possibilities,…they can all be found in the elements; in how our bodies hold the qualities and capacities of air, fire, water and earth.

The elements also provide a wonderful container for exploration and allow you to immerse yourself into moving from these different facets of your body.

ACCESSING MORE DEPTH IN and through YOUR MOVEMENT
Each element is also associated with a different physical system of the body, and you’ll learn how to move with and from these different areas. Moving from your bones (earth) feels very different to moving from your liquids and organs (water). Most of us are used to moving from our muscles (fire), but very few of us have ever intentionally moved from our skin and senses (air). Each element opens up a world of sensation, emotion and depth.

I’m excited to teach this work, because it is such a wonderful way to explore the depth, texture and variety our bodies hold.

OUR COLLECTIVE YEARNING
I keep hearing people say they want more depth in their lives; depth in their relationships, their work, their spiritual practices. This is one of the ways you can create this depth. By learning to feel and move your body from the different pace, rhythm, weight, size and shape of each element. By attuning yourself to the subtle and sometimes not so subtle differences.

There is a thrill of discovery, as you delve into the embodiment of the elements. The excitement of tapping into your bones. The mystery of moving from your organs and fluids. The rush of fiery, muscular moves. The expansiveness of moving from your skin and senses.

CULTIVATING MORE CAPACITY IN YOUR MOVEMENT
It takes time and space to cultivate your capacity to move. Most of us do so little movement in our every day lives that we are exhausted the moment we start to feel our bodies. In the weekend workshops, which I love to teach, I often feel we are just getting started with the depths we could reach through movement. There is, quite simply, so much more to explore.

Across this 5 day training, you’ll be moving 3-5 hours a day depending on the body system and element. This movement will be accompanied by other embodiment practices to enhance the qualities you’ll discover. You’ll be given a lot of space to find your own way of moving. How does your body want to express the deep steadiness of earth? How much mystery will you discover in the deep waters? What warmth will emanate from your fire? Can you move as lightly as air?


HOW TO KNOW IF THIS IS FOR YOU:

  • You have been invested in yoga and movement but are often frustrated with the lack of time to explore subjects with greater depth
  • You prioritise your well being, but daily life allows just the basics, and you wish to take the time to dive in deeper.
  • Life’s pulled you away from your practice and self-inquiry, and it’s affecting your choices. You want to ground yourself again and get back on track.
  • You trust the intelligence of your body and simply want more time to listen to and follow
  • You are passionate and curious about movement and cannot wait to explore it through the lens of the elements.

YOU WILL LEARN HOW TO:

  • Drop into the felt experience of your bones, fluid system, organs, muscles, skin and senses
  • Move from these different systems and go deeper into their qualities, energy and capacities
  • Enhance what emerges from each element through breath and embodiment practices and writing
  • Connect your embodied experience to life situations; to where you wish for “more”
  • Access the force of each element in stillness
