emBodied Yoga School New Mexico promotes inclusion and restoration for anyBody.
Cultivating an inclusive, accessible, and inviting teaching toolbox is the primary focus of our 200-hr Yoga Teacher Training.
During a time where modernized western yoga is primarily represented by a narrow population of privilege, we aim to widen the range of accessibility so all body types, with variable life experiences, find safety and solace in this sacred practice.
We stand in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement.
We see color and race and acknowledge the dynamic role it plays in identity, accessibility, and the ways in which we move and take up space in this world. All humans from all walks of life and socio-economic status and sexual and gender expressions are warmly welcomed here. Our mission is to be not just allies, but accomplices and co-conspirators, for those who have been oppressed, marginalized, and silenced. Check out more on how to end racism here.
In a sincere effort to break down barriers to access, safety, and inclusion, emBodied Yoga School seeks to offer body-centered (somatic) experiences for anyBody.
The core of our practice is rooted in socially just principles and facilitating trauma-informed practices that invite awareness, healing, and transformation for human from all walks of life, especially those yearning to heal and liberate the whole Self from ancestral trauma through emBodiment practices as a revolutionary political tool.
