Vienna: Embodied Yoga Principles Fundamentals Workshop

Embodied Yoga Principles Fundamentals Workshop
Embodied Yoga Principles is a pragmatic way of making postural yoga more meaningful and applicable 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 tools for work, parenting and in personal relationships. These can also be used as an efficient practice for coaches, therapists and trainers to develop themselves and their clients.
This workshop will be particularly useful for yoga teachers and experienced yoga practitioners who have a basic grounding in asana and want to deepen psychological and pragmatic aspects of their practice. This is not a typical yoga workshop – expect to be inspired and gain insights into your own psychological patterns.
EYP postures are ideal for coaches, therapists and trainers who want to work more with the body in a simple practical way. I find the postures super helpful for cutting though the bullshit and getting right to the heart of a client’s issues. Also, because they can be given as 1-5min homework, clients have something simple they can take away and realistically do even if they are busy people.
NB: no yoga experience required
Also expect to be challenged, for there to be very bad jokes and adult non-PC language, so please only come if robust and up for an intense experience and if you have a sense of humour. The workshop will include sharing with others, group work and partner work. We’ll learn and have fun and take the work but not ourselves seriously. All new age Instagram unicorns that wonder in will be sacrificed and eaten.
– 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
