EMBRYOLOGY, YOGA &

SELF-ENQUIRY

AN IMMERSION CPD

UNFOLD THE ORIGINS OF THE BODY, MOVEMENT & SENSE OF SELF

An experiential facilitation of early embryological development and its relationship to our adult body structures, systems and movement. Theory and practical content includes the development of the front, middle and back bodies; the origins, development and containment of the vertical axis, and the spiral development of the limbs.

In addition, drawing from the world of Somatic Psychology, explore the apparent differentiation of Body, Mind and Feeling, and what embodiment means to us as human beings and as yoga practitioners.

We welcome yoga practitioners and curious practitioners from other modalities. (Assignments are only required if you are require a CPD certificate - see below).
