NYC: Introduction to Embodied Yoga Principles Workshop
February 3rd, 2019
Embodied Yoga Principles is a pragmatic way of making yoga more meaningful and relevant to our everyday lives. EYP is a deep but Western, non-athletic system. It includes a set of postures to quickly reveal personal patterns, and that can be used as tools in daily life.
This workshop will be particularly useful for yoga teachers, teachers, therapists, coaches, and of course yoga practitioners who have a basic grounding in posture work. This is not a typical yoga workshop – expect to be inspired and gain insights into your own psychological patterns. Also expect to be challenged so please only come if robust and up for an intense experience. The workshop will include sharing experiences with others, group work and partner work. A FUN ONE.
– EYP emphasises psychological self-awareness and transfer of skills to daily-life.
-EYP is mindfulness-based and incorporates elements of life coaching, body therapy, dance, bodywork, improv and martial arts.
-EYP includes postures (traditional and new), group exercises and mindfulness communication (there’s chatty bits).
-EYP is about improving self-awareness, personal freedom, the relationships that matter most in our lives, and effectiveness in making the world a better place.

Nice things people have said about Mark:
“It brings rigorous self enquiry into my physical practice. It’s a way of bringing self study to life in practical and playful ways. EYP is adaptable, you can use it in simple ways to enhance a general yoga class and in a life changing way in longer workshops.” – Amanda Brown, experienced Yoga Teacher Cornwall, UK”
‘I’d been questioning a lot about the yoga scene in general, as well as what I’m teaching. The EYP weekend has left me inspired and thoughtful. I suspect it could lead to a whole new direction!’ – Catherine O’Mahony, Vinyassa yoga teacher, London
“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.” – Jane D, Sussex UK
“Mark has pressed the refresh button on the yoga world to see the practice of yoga through the eyes of embodiment brings a welcome new view .The methods of embodiment link the practice on the yoga mat and brings it firmly out into the world of our relationships,work and all aspects of life…and extends our range of practices as yoga teachers …” – Hatha yoga teacher, Brighton, UK
“Being encouraged to notice how I approached practice, and how I related to others during the class reflected unhelpful patterns and stories that I recognised play out in my in my life outside the studio, and are limiting me. Powerfully insightful.” – Holly, hot yoga practitioner, Brighton, UK
