INTERNATIONAL MINDFULNESS AND MEDITATION-BASED
RETREATS AND WORKSHOPS
MOVING FROM WITHIN: EMBODIMENT AND BODYWORK IMMERSION
CHIANG MAI, THAILAND
A journey into the inner senses to uncover our own physical and subtle mind-body mapping, bringing to our consciousness the way we inhabit in our environment and respond to elements and people around us. We will unearth the treasure trove of our innate healing through breath, movement, bodywork, meditation and self inquiry.
This will be 2 x 50 hours immersion for yoga practitioners, bodyworkers, movers, dancers, coaches, caregivers… anyone who is looking to understand the pathways of connectivity between the body, mind and spirit.
The embodiment approach in this immersion will shine a light on our habitual but sometimes unconscious neurological patterning that manifests into how we breathe, our holding gait, and our reactivity to circumstances. These are manifested through predispositions, deep-seated patterns and years of conditioning. Bringing together mindfulness-based techniques with somatic tools, we can gain more clarity into our own emotions and behaviour as an embodied biological process which will enable us to live and move with greater ease and grace.
Experience the functions of embodiment through movement, breathwork, yoga therapy applications, traditional Hatha Yoga practices, visualisations, vocalisations, self-inquiry and bodywork. Be EMPOWERED to access your own transformation and healing. You will also be able to apply these tools in teaching yoga or movement, self-care, or in offering bodywork to support your clients and your loved ones.
When we explore from within through a sensory rather than cognitive approach, our mind can de-clutter and re-wire towards a moment-to-moment presence in wellness.
