The experience:

Embodied Flow™ Yin Yoga is a gentle yet profound integrative practice that creates a sacred space where time expands and slows down for you to catch up to your deepest sense of self.

This approach combines a unique blend of yin poses, guided imagery, experiential anatomy, movement meditation, five elements Chinese medicine, breathwork, mantra and mind-body
medicine practices.

Embodied Flow™ Yin yoga recognizes that the way we care for ourselves, others and the environment are interrelated. Through developing awareness and loving kindness on and off the mat we gain a felt sense of this “interrelatedness” (yoga) and can become a more fully inhabited embodied being.

In this tradition, becoming embodied is a process of returning to our innate sense of wellbeing where the richness and subtleties of life are experienced. We find a place where we’re much less reactive and more responsive. A place where we can expand the aperture of our understanding of how we are, who we are, and what’s possible. We when practice in this way, a life fully felt becomes a life fully lived.
