Module #2: Mind (Flow)
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 is the second 100 hour part to the full 300 hour advanced program, designed to guide students through a deep and expansive journey of the Body-Mind as a means to experience the path of yoga. The Embodied Flow™ advanced level yoga training offers a laboratory of asana, psychology, science, research, experiential anatomy, self-contemplation, advanced teaching skills, embodied movement practices, philosophy, and voice work.
This training recognizes your strengths and at the same time invites you to foster and integrate new skills that give you the technology to create and facilitate embodied journeys of flow. This holistic approach enables you to attend to the complexities of your student’s processes and recognize the many pathways into supporting each individual student's unique needs. To facilitate embodied journeys of flow is to bestow your students with the felt experience of empowerment, so that they can utilize the tools you've offered to live the manifestation of their truest self.
As a practitioner of this system you must first and foremost be willing to look and shed light on every part of yourself, to examine old constructs and be ready to release false truths that no longer serve you or the whole. To practice Embodied Flow™ is to discover and become who you really are. The advanced modules are an opportunity to explore this path in immersive experience with the support and joy of community.
ABOUT THIS 100 HOUR "MIND" MODULE
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
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
How to develop functional empathy and hold space
Refining senses and perception
Understanding and clarifying boundaries
The psychology of change
Emotional freedom and modulation
With 200 additional advanced training hours with Embodied Flow™, students will become eligible to become Somatic Movement Therapists.

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.
