“Action is movement with intelligence. The world is filled with movement. What the world needs is more conscious movement, more action.” B.K.S. Iyengar

This inspirational quote is a good starting point to begin our journey. We are at a nexus in time where the ancient practice of Yoga seems to be moving like the ocean during a grandiose, yet chaotic storm; flowing in many directions, sometimes seemingly uncontrolled, and losing touch with its essence. In such an environment, it is wise to return to the heart of the matter. The art and practice of Yoga is the study of the body, mind and everlasting soul.. it is timeless and eternal. There are certain truths that are undeniably experienced in the fleeting, yet perfect moments of union between breath, body, heart, mind and soul. This pathway requires an unfailing dedication to Abhyasa, or conscious practice and the steady awareness of Vairagya, detachment to the shadows of existence. The concept of Abhyasa not only applies to the practice of Asana, but all aspects of life in which conscious action and positive intention will bring us and those around us, into the light. 

At the heart of the Liquid Flow Advanced Teacher's Training, are the lead facilitators: Simon Park, Noelle Connolly, Susan Michel and Gwyn Williams. Each teacher is deeply committed to their craft evidenced by years of in-depth study with master teachers spanning generations and styles.  Through constant practice, application and teaching we aim to present this timeless information in a way that remains relevant for our modern age. This is the power of lineage; the deep connection to the source are preserved and the universal truth of the teachings flows through us into the present moment. It is the perfect evolution to joyfully share this journey; of being life long students and ultimately ' Mitras ' - spiritual friends on the path. We are dedicated to teaching in the most authentic way, by learning and teaching from our practice, passing on the brilliance of our teachers, and from the lessons learned from the rich fabric of life.

GWYNN WILLIAMS

Zen Thai Shiatsu

Gwyn began his first steps into the foundation of the Zenthai artform in his teenage years with a fascination and complete absorption with  life force energy (Ki) . A self confessed life force fanatic,  his earlier years involved in using the  life force to fight and compete. As a serious martial artist and later a competitive mountain runner, the focus was on expending Ki, however when he later moved into alternative therapies and yoga in 1997, he realised that the real focus needed to be on sustaining and containing life force to utilise its full power. This has carried through to the present day sharing the importance of embracing a Yin and Yang aspect in daily life.

On Zenthai …

‘On the surface we may see a creative form of bodywork integrating techniques and philosophy from Zen Shiatsu, Thai massage and osteopathy. However, at its core is an invitation to  freedom.  Freedom not only of the structural and energetic bodies but also, if we are adventurous enough, also the mental and emotional.  Experiencing true freedom is not about ‘taking on’ anything new but more-so about letting go of the traps and blockages within our body/mind that prevent us from experiencing our true nature – joyful and free.  It becomes the focused intention for both giver and receiver using tools such as touch, breath, movement, awareness and honest self inquiry that is not confined to a yoga mat or futon but each moment of our daily life.’
