Embodied Yoga Principles w/Joyce Brown

 Embodied Yoga Principles is a method of embodiment which explores the ways our body communicates, it reveals behavioral patterns, habits and mechanisms of social interactions. The method has a clear structure: Physical poses, mindfulness, inquiry and verbal sharing. The insights are immediate and applicable to daily life.Our nature, upbringing, and social environment have probably contributed to shape us and make us be more comfortable functioning in one way over another limiting us in our range of responses. Acquiring awareness and re-owning leadership over ourself allows us to tap into many qualities and their energetic power we possess improving our chances to perform a wider range of responses to life situations. Using the EYP poses & method, we will link them to the four qualities of leadership: visionary, driver, collaborator and organizer. We will embody these qualities using EYP poses and apply the related inquiry methods. Afterward, we will transform them into microposes for daily use. We will also experience the relational and social influence of the embodied qualities through partner and group work.


Walking the Wheel - Spring Equinox


The Celtic Wheel is offered to us as an expression of the natural cycles of creation. It shows us the way
of nature and its inherent wisdom and power in the cycle of birth, growth, death, and rebirth. The Celtic
Wheel provides us with a map in which we can identify where we are at any given moment in our lives
and offers us a tool to navigate the journey of our soul. As our understanding of the wheel deepens, it
becomes alive for and within us and we begin to flow with grace with the cycles and rhythms of life.
The wheel is comprised of eight points, four fire festivals and four solar festivals. Each of these festivals
is an honoring and celebration of the sacred cycle of life. Throughout the year, we will gather at each
point of the wheel to share, learn, and attune to the wisdom and offerings of the time.
The Spring Equinox brings us to a moment when the light and the dark are equal and it is here that we
are called to pause and reflect on our personal journey. This moment of balance is a doorway into the
time of the growing light wherein you can choose to clarify and energize your dreams while honoring
and releasing that which no longer supports your highest expression. In our time together, we will
explore the state and yearnings of our soul through teachings, shamanic journey, journaling, sacred
circle, and ceremony.
Please dress comfortably, bring a pen, journal, and a small personal item to place on the altar.

  • "After years of doing another form of exercise and not getting the results I truly wanted, I began looking into yoga, and through my search found Spirit Rising. Is it corny to say I’ve found an instant connection to a better me? Not only is my physical health improving in just a short time, but my mental and spiritual health as well. I am deeply indebted to this tribe for bringing me to this place of self awareness. And an extra bonus-my daughter has joined me, and for the first time in a long time, we are having better connections together"
