April 3-6, 2018- Embodied Flow™ Immersion with Tara Judelle
Immersions are four or five day comprehensive introductions into the world of Embodied FlowTM. Each one is curated to expose the practitioner to the realm of somatic experiencing, tantric philosophy, and flow in asana.
Embodied FlowTM aims to tap into the entirety of awareness presence by cultivating an ever-deepening knowledge of the Self. By directing our awareness on systems of the body, fluency and flexibility of the mind, and authentic expression of the voice we seek to develop the three-dimensional Self. This immersive dive into world of Embodied Flow is designed for those that want to segue from other systems of yoga into the advanced training or for those practitioners and teachers that which to enhance their knowledge of the body through the world of embodied anatomy. The topics covered will deepen the understanding and scope of those that have taken previous Embodied Flow programs and complement previous immersions.
Our immersions draw on meditation, contemplation, free movement, asana, partner work (initiating asana flows from different body systems: skeletal, organ, endocrine, muscular, developmental, nervous system), pranayama, movement all aimed at awakening the body.

April 6-8, 2018- Formlessness/Form: A Weekend Workshop
The great paradox of yoga rests in the way the unsee-able and unknowable is seen and known through our container, our movement, our capacity to pull from the formless. This formlessness itself is not without qualities, the yogis referred to it as “the Real Knowledge.” This year the focus will dance between our inward looking Self towards tangible formlessness, and the outward expression of Self through form and all of its layers.
Classes will include lecture, asana, free movement and meditation.
Friday 7pm-9pm: Yielding into Space. Playing with the reciprocity that comes through the giving and receiving of the container with the support of space, this slow flow class reverses our attention to view space as a support inside and outside. Recognizing through the landscape of asana that space itself is the way that formlessness buoys our form within and without.
Saturday 10am-12:30pm: Dimension. We can open ourselves into the different dimensions through space: vertically, horizontally and sagittally. As we increase the perception of height, width and depth within our body, the endless spectrum of our three-dimensional self unfolds. In this class, utilizing asana, we will play through planes of movement.
Saturday 2pm-4:30pm: Meditations in Madhya. The Madhya is the gap that is an access point available between breaths, thoughts, peaks and valleys in asana. This class will slip us into a slow meditative flow with some grounding poses and end with a dive into the meditative field of the Madhya.
Sunday 10am-12:30pm: Shape Flow. Exploring our capacity to inhabit form fully, this class looks at how we inhabit shape fully as we flow from form to form pulling the presence of formlessness into the dance. Presence and attention in the morphology of movement potentiating our move into a flow state will be the focus of this class.
