The Embodied Breath

An intimate guide through the inner architecture of Pranayama

FOUNDATIONS

Pranayama, as with all yoga, is an intimate relational invitation.

 

What moves us towards this kind of work is a deep desire to know the truth of our lives, a deep desire to fully open and inhabit our lives, a deep desire to touch and be touched by life.

A longing for a deeper relational intimacy with the living contours of experience.

 

In this course we will explore the unfathomable depths of intimacy as much as we will learn

about the transformative power of the breath and feeling and embodiment.

deeply personal

We cannot practice pranayama without refining our capacity for intimacy.

 

The practice of pranayama invites a full, fearless and exquisitely tender participation with the living moment.

It opens a deeper intimacy with ourselves, with others with life itself.

 

I hope you can join us on this unique exploration of pranayama

What students say.

The opportunity to attend one of Paul’s events is an opportunity for me to deepen my practice and embody the ancient teachings of Yoga. Paul’s amazing wisdom and depth of knowledge allows me to release into his care and let go of all pretensions and expectations.

Paul has a wonderful way of making each student feel special and valued and allows them to ‘start where they are at’.

As a Yoga Teacher myself, attending Paul’s retreats are part of

my ongoing personal development and teacher training as I find I learn so much from him and my fellow retreat participants.

I give Paul’s retreats my highest recommendation.

What students say.

Paul Wooden is a yoga teachers’ teacher. He offers a wonderful, eclectic blend of yoga traditions.

 It’s hard to convey the deep richness of his teaching, nor the exceptional skills and mastery that he uses in his work. Paul has a massive depth of theoretical and practical knowledge in all areas of yogic study.

He teaches with an open heart and humility, honouring each student with deep respect, and delicately nurtures each student’s development.

Personally, I consider being Paul’s student to be essential to my ongoing training and development as a yoga student, yoga teacher and student of life!

Meet Paul

Paul Wooden has been practicing and studying yoga and meditation for 35 years and teaching for 30 years.

He draws from his experience in many different styles and traditions and, through a practical understanding of their underlying unifying principles, weaves together a cohesive and integrated approach to yoga. 

Paul is a unique voice in the world of yoga.  He has a way of bringing the sometimes abstract teaching of yoga into ordinary language making them accessible and workable in our lives.

For Paul, yoga is first and foremost a relational process, with technique being a way to serve a deepening and more intimate relationship with ongoing moment to moment reality of our lives.

Working with Paul is an invitation to the deeper dimensions of practice. His particular way of working opens us to the sensitivity and receptivity necessary for the subtler inner practices. 

 

Paul’s approach offers rich learning possibilities. He teaches an embodied practice deeply rooted in the rich philosophy and psychology of the wisdom traditions.

Students find a practice that is personal, transformative and grounded.

Paul considers meditation as an essential element in the yogic process and this is a central pillar of what he offers.

 

He complements studies of the wisdom traditions with a more contemporary understanding of the human condition including developmental psychology and integral theory and trauma work (somatic experiencing) which seeks to help uncover and release the binding patterns of trauma in the body.
