We love to share what we have learned!

An innovative and exciting approach to the study of yoga.

Steeped in ancient wisdom and informed by cutting-edge study in the field of body-awareness, EMBODYOGA® introduces us to “embodied-inquiry” techniques that invite us deeper into ourselves. Embodied-inquiry is a methodical practice for experiencing directly — through sensing, feeling and witnessing — every aspect of intelligence and clarity as it expresses through us.  The embodied-inquiry techniques of EMBODYOGA®blend with our practice of asana, pranayama and meditation giving rise to intimate self-knowledge. Self-knowledge breeds acceptance, contentment and love; insight and inspiration flow spontaneously.
