Embodyoga® Philosophy

Embodyoga® begins with the premise that our entire personal self—body, heart, and mind—is a sea of Pure Vibrating Creative Awareness. We recognize that each aspect of our physical, subtle, and energetic form is an expression of this Pure Awareness manifesting through individual qualities and traits. We experience these aspects as gradations of Pure Awareness, all made of the same “stuff”, all having equal value and importance, and all interwoven to form a system that is perfectly equipped and primed for Self-Realization. 

Through the process of inquiry, which guides the journey into our unique body-mind system,
we harness the powerful forces of curiosity and desire to guide our exploration.

Experience has shown us that whatever route this journey takes, it leads to the revelation of the Unity that underlies all form. In this way, Embodyoga® practice provides us with a direct experience of Unity that remains with us on and off the yoga mat, manifesting through and supporting our relationships with ourselves and others. 

When we have had a direct and profound encounter with who and what we are, we effortlessly share this experience as an offering in all our interactions. A sense of love and responsibility for the well being of all humanity expands outwardly in concentric circles from ourselves, through our family, friends, and community, and beyond. This outward expansion results directly from our ability to perceive our essential selves more deeply.

In the same way that a tripod relies equally on three legs and will fall if any one is not present, Embodyoga® is supported by three pillars: Embodied-Inquiry™, Santosha, and Viveka.
