Sat 21st, Sun 22nd and Mon 23rd July 2018 at Well Aligned Studio

Small Group Training - Maximum 10 Participants

Mark’s talent is in breadth of vision unmatched by anybody else I know. He can provide a learning experience which draws on many experts and many forms of embodiment understanding and skill and integrates it all so that it forms a more whole process of change and growth.

Embodied Yoga offers a much needed fresh authentic perspective on yoga. Its not offering an opportunity to float off into spiritual la-la and distance oneself from life’s suffering, on the contrary it encourages the participant to become fully aware and to take responsibility for what is going on in their body and mind, becoming aware of patterns and shadows in a safe supported environment.

About the EYP Teacher Training

The EYP teacher training is a well-structured, intense, pragmatic, 3-day immersion into Embodied Yoga for people wishing to grow personally and use EYP professionally.  You may be interested in EYP teacher trainings for one or more of several reasons.

Come if you'd like:

  • a deep dive into self-awareness and personal growth
  • to develop new aspects of your yoga practice & teaching, that's deep yet practical
  • to use elements of EYP to psychologically enrich your own yoga classes and help students get their learning "off the mat"
  • to teach dedicated EYP classes
  • to join a supportive dynamic international community
  • to learn postures that can be used as part of coaching & training outside of yoga
  • to have fun learning something new and unique.

It consists of three intensive days, some pre-coursework (mostly watching videos) and personal practice afterwards if you wish to officially qualify. 

The training is as much about developing as a person as it is about picking up new techniques and the principles themselves, so you can practice EYP in your own creative way. 

Because Embodied Yoga is a set of principles rather than a style, it can add a new dimension to any approach to practice and be used creatively. 

The training is not to be taken lightly as involves some work and much personal challenge. It will be deep, fun, personally and professionally enriching, but not all easy. 

Taught by Embodied Yoga Founder founder Mark Walsh.

Mark has been a practitioner of movements arts for twenty years, including several years as a full-time aikido student. His main yoga influences are Scaravelli, Yin and Buddhist inspired teachers. He has an honours degree in psychology. He founded and runs several organisations which bring embodiment into business, to aid workers and peace activists in war zones, and trains facilitators in around twenty countries annually.

He has worked with everyone from the House of Lords, to Unilever, to the Sierra Leonian Army to Occupy; and yoga teachers of all major styles.

His YouTube channel has over 10 Million hits and he’s now getting self conscious about boasting about himself in the third person so will stop.

Suitable for:

  • people experienced in any style of yoga looking to add a whole new dimension to their practice and deepen their personal awareness and growth
  • people already qualified to teach any style of yoga looking to add elements of depth, pragmatism and breadth from other embodied arts that they teach

  • those up for a challenging emotional journey
  • people with a sense of humour (vital for the training)
