Embodied Living - 2A
Body Relationships - part1
Part 1 of the 2nd of a series of 6-week courses with Marc J Acquaviva, to transform your relationship to body & the world around you

Acquaviva Yoga The second wave
- the daytime sessions -
This is the second of my online courses taking us into an exploration of specific relationships between parts of ourselves and the space we occupy.
There were two courses running concurrently on this theme, and although the themes of each are based on the same principles, the delivery and specific content was geared to each participating group, so each of these courses shine a light on the same subject from a different angle, often working with different relationships of the body.
As always, these recordings of my live online 6-week courses are designed to give you a complete guided tour of the body, bringing awareness to key relationships through action and breath, using simple functional postures and movements as the framework.
Week by week you be guided in specific practices that bring you directly in touch with the body's innate intelligence. The course acts as structured support for the process that this initiates.
I offer new ways of understanding movement and support, that will greatly enhance your practice, whether you are a complete beginner or experienced Yoga practitioner from any style of practice.
Sessions are around 90minutes each. Once you have access to a recorded session, you have access for life.
45-60 minutes of each session, I guide you through specific practices and relationships based on the theme for the week.
Either at the beginning or end of the session I invite Q & A with the live participants, and I offer ideas and practical yoga solutions to whatever is going on for them. People that go through the recorded version of this course have said that this part is just as relevant to their in-the-moment practice as if they were there live.
With the recordings, you also have the advantage of being able to pause, rewind and redo parts that catch your attention.
To make the most of this course, my advice would be to practice a little bit daily. 10 or 15 minutes will do, although if you are enjoying it, and have the time to do more I have found that there is no actual limit to how long I could practice if I wanted to.
If you start with something that caught your interest on the session, the body will begin to remind you of other things.. It could be a principle, a direction of attention, or some relationship that I invite you to explore.
If this kind of awareness finds its way into your daily life, then you will have begun the process of embodied living. It is quite a natural outcome of the practice, but only if you invite it. It is this that changes people's lives - there is an empowerment that comes with listening directly to the body's own intelligence. It gives us accurate clues about how we truly feel about things, and its voice can act as the wisest of guides through life. It is this particular realisation and experience that my students find to be one of most profound benefits of practice.
