Brighton – EYP For Coaches

Embodied Yoga Principles for Coaches



Embodied Yoga Principles is a non-athletic system that includes a set of postures that quickly reveal personal patterns and shift state. These can also be used as an efficient practice for coaches to develop themselves. EYP postures are ideal for coaches 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.
Come if you are:

  • A coach who’d like to bring the body into their work in a simple and effective way 
  • A coach already skilled with working with the body, but who’d like a new systematic way of working 
  • A group facilitator looking for a simple pragmatic body tools 
  • A yoga teacher looking to move more into coaching

The Embodiment Conference – An Online Celebration Of Reconnection With The Body

November 13 – 24th 2018

We are doing something new and ambitious and you’re warmly invited. From November 13th – 24th 2018, over eighty renowned teachers will come together to share their experience in an online global event. We will explore a wide range of embodiment topics, including yoga, therapy, creativity, natural movement, meditation, martial arts, bodywork and ecology. If you’re interested in the body, there will be something for you. It’ll be a great way to both deepen your current understanding and broaden your perspectives.


New Online Course Modules

I have been busying myself over the past couple of months completely re-designing our online training as a modular course. This allows people to study each module separately to build towards the full Healing Space certification, or simply to study individual modules as CPD. I am very excited to say that the first module – CREATING A HEALING SPACE – is now live and ready to study! And is being offered at the much reduced introductory rate of only £44.44 instead of the normal price of £95. Click on the pic/link below for full details.

March is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month

ovcaMarch 2016 is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month.

Ovarian cancer can be devastating. Far too many women are diagnosed too late, once the cancer has already spread, making treatment more difficult. When a woman is diagnosed at the earliest stage, her chance of surviving ovarian cancer for five years or more doubles from just 46 per cent to more than 90 per cent.
