Type of Event: Open Day

This inspiring day of  learning and practising Embodied Yoga Principles will create qualities and skills which will enable you to take yoga off your mat and out into your everyday life.

Yoga will be practised with a different emphasis and will be more relevant to your relationships, family life, study or work life  and will include a combination of "inner” and "outer” elements.  

The "inner” practice is reflective and the "outer” practice is more social and engaging, and is about connecting and having fun.  Both elements are extremely relevant to enhancing your daily life.

Verbal communication, sharing and self reflection are all important aspects of Embodied Yoga Principles. They allow insightful communication and sharing, which will help you to focus on setting and declaring future goals and paths you wish to achieve and take.

By exploring a variety of different postures,  you will become more open, more able to say yes and no and stand up for what you believe in, providing support for yourself and others,  and take part in every aspect of life fully amongst a host of other benefits.

The day may be emotionally intense as the Principles are powerful tools which look at at your personal pattern.  With your consent we will share personal experiences in small groups and in pairs.  Please be aware that as the practices can be powerful  and this day will not be suitable for those who have current mental health issues, are suffering intense stress or are in an emotionally vulnerable position.  Please talk to Vidyadasa before signing up to see if the day is suitable for you.  Email:
