The Inner – Outer Journey

What do you need for a new journey? You need a good road map. Imagine that road map is accompanied by an inner GPS that is constantly being updated. That is you and your exquisite body intelligence. In this practice, we use our bodies, minds and spirits as living laboratories. Like somatic scientists, we investigate our direct, bodyful experience within asana, vinyasa, breathwork, restorative yoga and somatic inquiry. Along the way, we hone our ability to self-reflect (‘meta-cognition’ in neuroscience) and to change our patterns.

Asana is a practice of meditation in motion.

We don’t have a body: we are a body, one that is bodyful and breathful and heartful and mindful. From a scientific perspective, we are a bio-psycho-social-spiritual process. In other words, we are somas: a moving symphony of breathing, digesting, metabolising, expressing, thinking, feeling, acting and experiencing.

The Seven Moving Principles

Central to the Living Yoga practice are seven moving principles that guide how we breathe, yield, radiate, centre, support, align and engage. These principles were distilled by Donna Farhi from the work of Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen and the School for Body-Mind Centering®. I am profoundly grateful for the gift of these teachings.

Imagine your body as a river. Where does the water flow smoothly and where are there rocks in the river? How do the river and the rocks together shape how we move? In other words, how do they create our movement patterns?
