I’ve adapted the House of Yoga for festivals as a live event, working with DJ’s & Producers such as Get Down Edits to create an exciting live event which includes all ages, shapes and sizes. No yoga mats or special gear is needed, participants can just rock up with their own ‘house’ as it is for a gentle, all over body ‘retunification’ which takes place standing up so even the mud doesn’t matter! There is a magic in the conscious co-creation and celebration of body, breath and beat which generates an incredible energy as we all tune into our own ‘house’ as the bigger ‘House’ of the tent or stage increases in volume and spirit with the breath and beats.
However, I began teaching and offering this practice in Yoga Studios around the country beginning in 2010 and have adapted, and refined the method and system for yogi’s now as a conscious embodiment practice & class. In 2018 I will offer the House of Yoga Practice as a 2 hour workshop integrating the festival experience to generate energy and openness and a strong vinyasa to the beat sequence and sound therapy experience to maximise connection and ‘union’ within and without. I’m currently developing a programme for Yoga Teachers to teach the HOY method.
I’ve created a 9 week course of conscious embodiment for young people, particularly young girls which uses the metaphor of the individual ‘wifi’ symbol as per my logo to ‘download’ and ‘upload’ information into their mind/body/heart system ‘hard drives’ and give them an understanding of and a tool for managing the 7 energy centres of the body.
For large groups the practice is a great way to engender ‘unity in community’ and the method can be offered as simple movements travelling through the 7 energy centres from base to top, building in energy and joy and connection as the class evolves. For those who want to build a deeper sense of the embodiment of the internal ‘wifi’ signals this practice can be offered as a 7-9 week course also.
