Why mindfulness alone isn’t enough.
The definitive guide to managing stress with the body, for trainers, coaches and facilitators by Mark Walsh and other members of the Embodied Facilitator Course community.
“We are the first system we must learn to manage” – Stuart Heller
“If you want to help someone – get yourself together” – Wendy Palmer
Why would anyone be interested in centring?
(self-regulation through the body).
Well, you could look at it this way: what if there were a piece of technology available which could improve literally anything you do? What if it was free, took very little time to learn, measurably improves performance across a huge range of tasks, reduces stress, and improves both individual well-being, performance and relationships? What if there was something always available and good for your health that could improve every aspect of life? Happily such “technology” does exist – it’s a set of body-mind techniques known as “centring”.
We all need to manage ourselves. This book is about how to do that more effectively. It is especially aimed at facilitators, trainers and coaches of all kinds who also wish to support others in managing themselves too. Martial arts, dance and yoga teachers will also find it helpful for supporting students as well.
What you’ll get from this book:
– practical techniques to improve your own happiness, relationships and productivity
– tools to enhance your facilitation skills
– a thorough grounding in the deeper principles behind techniques so you can work creatively with them
– practical techniques you can bring to clients right away to add value to your offers
– clarification of the often woolly theory of centring
– the science of centring to better “sell” the idea to clients
We can all regulate ourselves at times, we’re not toddlers having tantrums at any mishap, but this vital life skill can be more or less developed. There’s much benefit to simply being aware of ourselves (mindfulness), but much more in being able to positivity influence our state, to impact our happiness, relationships and work. “Centring” is the overall term used for the self-regulation skills that work with the body. At core, being stressed is a bodily response, so we need bodily tools to work with this. We can not just talk ourselves out of physiology, and all the disembodied books in the world won’t help either.
But centring practices available in this e-book will!

Making yoga more meaningful
Embodied yoga principles
A practical guide to deepening asana psychologically and getting yoga off the mat and into your life. For Yoga teachers and experienced practitioners, or people looking to make a deeper link between yoga and life by Mark Walsh.
“Embodied Yoga Principles has added a layer to my classes which enables students to explore their posture practice in a deeper way, without demanding specific spiritual beliefs, cultural paraphernalia, dogma or philosophical complexity. It’s simple, practical and pragmatic yet gives people the opportunity to explore meaning and change in their lives off the mat”
– Karin Van Maanen – Yoga & Mindfulness Tutor MSc, Dip BWY
Why would anyone be interested in Embodied Yoga Principles?
Imagine you could improve how much your yoga positively impacts what you care about, your relationships, your work, study or wherever your passion is in life. Practicing yoga in a way to gain insights and learning skills to better handle anything that life throws at you.
Bring your values to the yoga mat,make it a place to grow as a person. Yoga can be so much more than it is currently generally being presented and so much more useful for all of your life.
What you’ll get from this book:
– 58 pages e-book
– The principles of effective learning transfer from the yoga mat to the rest of your life.
– Pragmatic techniques for enhancing how your personal practice impacts what you care about.
– Unique teaching tools to help your students enrich their yoga.
This book can be read straight through as a conventional book to extract the information, however, learning about something is a fairly shallow level of learning and there are deeper options here too. I assume readers already have some kind of regular yoga practice to play with and maybe a teaching practice, so there’s various experiments that can be integrated here. This book isn’t aimed at complete beginners or yoga fundamentalists who regard one style as gospel.
You may find it particularly helpful to review the book immediately before or after a yoga session for practice ideas and reflections. Most importantly it’s a guide for practice, more akin to an owners-manual or cookbook than a theoretical treatise. It’s a practical “how to” book. Try what’s
here and make up your own mind as to whether there’s truth in the ideas. Don’t believe a word I say, find out for yourself experientially. There are many sub-sections labelled “practice”, “reflection” and “experiment” as reminders to do this. Reflections can be done in pairs and groups as discussions, and this can be a lovely way of integrating learning, being held accountable and getting support for any changes you decide to make to your teaching or personal practice. I’d love you to share this book with a colleague for mutual learning.
Links to many videos are also included. It’s not necessary to watch these to understand the book, however, they’re there if you wish to dive deeper into any topic or clarify an idea. This is a fairly concise book and many of the ideas are better demonstrated than explained verbally, so if an idea is confusing, do take a look at any accompanying videos. You can see the concepts in action with real participants in many instances this is usually helpful.
Yoga practices in this e-book will help you change!
Embodiment Conference video library
The Embodiment Conference was a ground-breaking event
We had 15,500 people signed up, 130+ speakers, and sessions every 2 hours – day and night! It was epic and unless you didn’t work, eat or sleep there was no way you could catch all the content live. We deliberately made the content free for all to provide access, and to get the most from the conference having the recordings ongoing is a major bonus. It may take a few weeks to let all the material sink in, in fact! …What a freakin wisdom fest. If you missed it don’t worry, you can read more about it, and here is an opportunity to see the conference again.
