Urban Yoga is thrilled to announce special guest Embodied Flow teacher Juliette McConachy is coming back to Wellington and Urban Yoga this March to explore the embodiment of belonging. Her personal practice has given birth to a greater curiosity in how we access growth and move away from habits or choices that do not support our lives.
“I am interested in how I can know this compartment of consciousness we call a body or soma, in all its layers and systems and patterns of growth, to discover how to resource absolutely anything that exists within the universe (the macrocosm) from within my own microcosmic experience”. - Juliette
In this two part workshop we explore the skeletal structure and the glandular system as a resource for the experience of support, growth and belonging. It is a deepening of a conversation we all embody which we may headline simply as Maturity.
In the words of David Whyte:
“Maturity is the ability to live fully and equally in multiple contexts; most especially, the ability to courageously inhabit the past the present and the future all at once; the wisdom that comes from maturity is recognised through a disciplined refusal to choose between or isolate three powerful dynamics shaping human identity: what has already happened, what is happening now and what is about to occur.”
Part one: Our skeletal structure; Sunday March 15th, 9:30am – 12:30pm
An exploration in re-imagining our structural form and function. Embodying the listening liquid life of our bones as the family tree that maps our belonging back to the belly of the sea.
Part two: Our endocrine glands; Sunday March 15th, 2:00 – 5:00pm
Meet the star studded central channel that homes our endocrine glands. Like lamps that light the night sky of the inner body, our glands are the Kaitiaki of safety, growth and whole body/being harmony.
Learn to connect the dots of the glands with the frame of your bones to support the dreaming you are into fluid motion.
“Support proceeds movement.” – Bonnie Bainbridge-cohen
“There is no direct, permanent or public access to the divine. Each destiny must find its own spiritual belonging and direction.” – John O’Donohue
The two 3 hour sessions making up the weekend Immersion are designed as a sequential progression. Open to all levels of yoga practitioner, this will be an insightful and rich opportunity to dive deeper into your sacred connection to yourself, this land and the wider community.
