100 Hour Advanced Level Embodied Flow™ Training
Prerequisite: A previous 200-hour RYT Teacher Training. Embodied Flow™ Foundations is highly recommended.
LIFTING THE VEILS OF OBSTRUCTION AND STEPPING INTO THE SLIPSTREAM OF FLOW
“If your mind carries a heavy burden of past, you will experience more of the same. The past perpetuates itself through lack of presence. The quality of your consciousness at this moment is what shapes the future. . . ”
― Eckhart Tolle
This 100-hour “Mind” Module delves deeply into explorations of consciousness and the rich world of somatic psychology. In endeavoring to bring awareness to all the psychological, physiological, spiritual, energetic and social aspects of our inner and outer organization, we explore the direct experience of the many layers of consciousness.
Continuing with Embodied Flow™ asana, pranayama, philosophy and meditation, students will gain strong foundations in the practices of body-mind medicine as they are facilitated on a journey towards a felt sense of wholeness.
Anchoring these practices in the non-dual tantric technologies of awakening, topics covered will include:
- The identification and discovery of Self
- The five stages of flow
- Shadow work
- An in-depth investigation of bridging non-dualistic tantric philosophy (Kashmir Shaivism) into the practice of a moving meditation.
- The psychology of stress and pain
- Mandala practices
- Developing presence
- How to develop functional empathy and hold space
- Refining senses and perception
- Understanding and clarifying boundaries
- The psychology of change
- Emotional freedom and modulation
- Fostering Intuition

For over 27 years, Tara Judelle has experimented with all forms of movement flow, from dance to Tai Chi, to movement improvisation and ultimately yoga. An English degree from Barnard College, post-graduate studies in theatre directing and a foray into film writing and directing brought her finally to the study of yoga and meditation. Certified in the Anusara™ method, Tara has taught yoga extensively, both nationally and internationally, for 15 years. She has been inspired by the Body Mind Centering® works of Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen and has studied and taught with Carlos Pomeda and Sally Kempton.
For the last 7 years she has been a featured teacher as part of the yogaglo.com team, allowing the yoga conversation to stream around the globe.
In 2010 Tara moved from her home base in Los Angeles to direct a yoga program and retreat center in Bali, Indonesia. Since the close of 2011, she has had no fixed base, leading to her current schedule facilitating workshops, retreats and teacher trainings worldwide.
Tara Judelle’s classes focus on the discovery of embodied anatomy, bringing to the yogic tradition a scientific yet playful study of the movement vocabulary of the body and the ever-expanding perceptual awareness of the human mind. In 2014 Tara co-created the School of Embodied Flow™ with Dr. Scott Lyons to bring her current passions together into a modern movement of Yoga.
