~ An Embodied Flow™ Weekend Workshop with Tara Judelle.
Embodied Flow™ is a continuum of movement and expression that draws from the discoveries of various hatha, tantric and somatic movement systems in order to experience yoga as a living art form. Embodied Flow™provides the technology for a deep sense of ease, strength and connectivity in the human form. This in turn, empowers the practitioner to be their own greatest teacher as they expand, integrate and facilitate awareness in their entire body-mind.
Join internationally recognised yoga teacher Tara Judelle, dive into a weekend of Embodied Flow™ exploration and discover its magic for yourself!
All Levels welcome.
In this weekend workshop we will work to move through standard asanas from an inner body perspective to explore the three main centers of awareness: the moving center, the heart center and the awareness center. When these gateways to consciousness become blocked, our operational awareness becomes less than its fullest potential. We will connect the physical body to the emotionally intelligent, feeling sense of loving presence, in order to be able to unblock creativity, love and action. All sessions will include lecture, movement, and partner work.
The experience and awareness within asana practice open infinitely into moving from a sense of ease and support. Using tools of embodied anatomy to wake up the feeling sense of our body structure, this class will focus on the organs, glands and bones to create fluidity and ease in form. Playing with shapes of traditional asana and adding cues from the inner body to facilitate ease, we will begin to meet inner landmarks for establishing the center.
Karma Mala is the block that covers our power, steadfastness, and sense of connection to the earth. Through asana and the work of embodied anatomy, we will feel into the intelligence of organs, and how to move from an inner sense of support created in the bones, and the organ body.
Anava Mala is the block that covers our connection to the Universal, love, and feeling of support created by the loving presence that is our true nature. By using movement, embodied anatomy and partner work we will work to remember the sweet support of the heart and the lungs – the architecture of our center for loving communication and compassion.
In this final class we will work to familiarize and connect ourselves to the higher centers of awareness, and the glands of the crown, relating our vision and clear seeing of the highest self. The workshop will build on the first three, and work to attune to the central channel for down-pouring of information related to movement.
Each sequential session of this workshop is conceived as a progressive weekend designed to establish the practitioners remembrance of ease in movement. The duration of each session is approx. 2-2.5 hours.

Island Bay Surf Club,
For over 27 years Tara has experimented with all forms of movement flow, from dance to Tai Chi, to movement improvisation and ultimately yoga. An English degree from Barnard College, post-graduate studies in theatre directing and a foray into film writing and directing brought her finally to the study of yoga and meditation. Certified in the Anusara method, Tara has taught yoga extensively, both nationally and internationally, for 12 years. She has been inspired by the Body Mind Centering works of Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen and has studied and taught with Carlos Pomeda and Sally Kempton. For the last 4 years she has been a featured teacher as part of the yogaglo.com team, allowing the yoga conversation to stream around the globe.
In 2010 Tara moved from her home base in Los Angeles to direct a yoga program and retreat center in Bali, Indonesia, leading to her current schedule teaching workshops, retreats and teacher trainings worldwide, which can be viewed at tarajudelle.com.
Tara’s classes focus on the discovery of embodied anatomy, bringing to the yogic tradition a scientific yet playful study of the movement vocabulary of the body and the ever-expanding perceptual awareness of the human mind.
