Embody the Elements
UNWIND THE FEMININE SERIES
Launch date 9th August 2020
Calling all the warrior women
The women ready to take off their armour and let their sensuality lead the way. The women who want to shake the system. We call to your hearts, your minds, and your souls. Let’s tap into our deeper wisdom and unite as a collective via the sacred arts of dance and yoga.
Join Karina and Bex on a journey through the five elements as they share a series of embodied practices to inspire powerful connection with the feminine body and the natural world.
We reclaim these practices that have, at times, been a form of powerful expression, prayer, and even protest. Here, dance and yoga meet through the elements. We aim to support you to draw strength and inspiration from Nature, even if you reside in the middle of a concrete city. Reclaim your movements and rituals. Increase your vitality, shift stagnation and develop a sincere vision for the interconnectivity that is at the heart of our world. There hasn’t been a more important time to do this than now.
Embody the Elements celebrates our freedom through movement and everyone is welcome. Women from all backgrounds, from all cultures, of all ages, all are welcome, you are welcome; to move in solidarity, to tap into your intrinsic elemental knowledge and to unlock your capacity to rise in support of social and environmental justice.
This is an invitation to listen carefully to the deep wisdom ingrained in our very bodies, to support this reclamation so that the ripples that it generates spread into the wider world.
One day, we will be the ancestors. What legacy will you leave and what are the prayers you will seed?
The course contains 15 hours of pre-recorded material for you to dive into at your own pace. The launch is to coincide with International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples. We move to support the guest speakers we invite onto your screens and hearts.
5 Master Dance Classes with Karina Christie
Drop into new rhythms, movements and ways of expression. Karina shares her years of exploring dance choreography in an accessible energising way. Her five sessions take you on a deep dive to further awaken the elemental essences within you. Her videos are recorded in pristine nature in New South Wales, Australia.
Meditations, Poetry & Special Guests
We are extremely honoured to introduce women from Borneo, Palestine, Brazil, Australia and the Pacific Islands to share insights from their indigenous wisdom, sacred practices and environmental activism. We open up the element of space to learn more about the relationship between women’s health, rights and the wider environment. We also welcome our special guest Maryam Mafi, to share her translations of poetry in both Farsi and English.
5 Unique Yoga Practices with Bex Tyrer
Bex takes you on a journey with the support and wisdom of the earth beneath into the fire of transformation to the heart of the breath that unites us before diving into the waters of flow and the space within/yin and around. Recorded in stunning locations around Bali and exploring the edges of a variety of contemporary styles including Vinyasa, YinYang, Hatha, Yin and non-linear organic movement. The practices include opening presentations and closing meditations.
Welcome women. Movement is our passion. It is where we explore inner freedom outer expression. The elements are our medicine, our inspiration and our greatest teachers. In this course, we share with you gorgeous practices that have become our lifeline via the separate yet related arts of dance and yoga.
Bex: “At times I have had to throw the yoga mat to one side and dive into the ocean, immerse in the waves, roll on the earth or disintegrate into space – to be remade again and again. Yet my yoga – my practice – has been my loyal companion. It has been my way to remember what at times I have forgotten. That I am part of a much greater story.”
Karina: “Dance is a vehicle for Spirit to communicate through us, teaching us how to be in relationship with the Earth, the elements, the seen and the unseen. A conversation that helps us understand we are intrinsically one with our external environment. My practice of dance, somatic movement and yoga lovingly supports my internal compass to navigate the web of life in balance and harmony. Dance is my prayer and my sacred offering to help reclaim our feminine power.”
