Embodied Flow Yin Yoga Immersion
Date: 15 - 20 October 2018
Instructor: Satu Tuomela & Scott Lyons
About the Practice
Embodied Flow Yin Yoga is a gentle integrative practice that creates a sacred space where time expands and slows down for you to 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, breath work, 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 lovingkindness 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 processes of returning to our innate sense of well-being where the richness and subtleties of life are experienced. In this way, a life fully felt- is a life fully lived.
