Triibe Hosts Embodiment Expert, Mark Walsh for a not your everyday yoga workshop.
(Also checkout the Embodiment for Facilitation and Coaching workshop).
At Triibe, we teach what it is to powerfully embody our authentic selves, including the central place of the body as a key part of relating. Embodying our authentic self means we are fully relaxed in our skin - congruent in the expression of who we are. This then flows out into how we are with others - more comfortable to take up space as ourselves and let others do the same. It has been profound for me to relax more into myself in this way and relate from this place.
We believe in getting behind the people we see kicking arse in this space - and Mark is one of those guys! With a prolific youtube channel with 12 million views, having taught in over 30 countries around the globe and a teacher who walks his talk, it is with great passion, we welcome internationally renowned embodiment teacher, Mark Walsh.
Psychology of Yoga - July 14th
An Introduction To Embodied Yoga Principles
What you can get from this workshop:
• Practical tools you can use in daily life
• Increased psychological awareness as to what is limiting you
• Greater freedom to not be stuck in the same old patterns
• A whole new “level” to work with during asana practice
• A fresh framework to inspire and guide your home practice
• A way of improving your relationships (from leadership, to healthy boundaries, to being sexier from the inside out)
• Greater effectiveness in making the world a better place. This isn’t “holiday” or health and beauty yoga, this is yoga for what matters most
• Many laughs, a fun social time and some new friends (EYP is really good at connecting people)
what is eyp?
Embodied Yoga Principles (EYP) is a practical new method for making postural yoga more applicable to daily life. EYP is used to enrich yoga practice and add a new level of depth to asana. EYP helps yogis gain deep insights and learn practical tools to help with work, relationships and the challenges of life in 2018 far from the Himalayas. Rather than just helping people relax, EYP is an educational method for growing as a person and powerfully improving your life. It’s mindfulness-based and influenced by body therapy, dance, theatre, improv comedy, martial arts and life coaching; and brings these approaches to yoga.
This workshop will be particularly useful for yoga teachers and practitioners who have a grounding in asana practice and wish to extend their knowledge “off the mat”. This is not a typical yoga workshop – expect to be inspired, challenged and gain some deep insights into your own psychological patterns. The day will include chatting with partners, group discussions and bad jokes.

FROM MARK HIMSELF....
"Embodiment is my obsession, my life’s work and my chosen field for helping to unfuck the planet, whilst enjoying the kick-arse circus of being human all the more. EFC has been built over the last five years from the sweat and tears of wonderful people. It’s well structured, well organised, tried and tested, and it really does the job. EFC has grown beyond my own flaws into something special and I love being a fire-starter in that.”
“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
“Embodied Yoga is a refreshing take on yoga as a method of self-enquiry and transformation. Highly effective for transforming your patterns of behaviour.” – Sindre, Oslo, Norway
