Welcome into a community of humans who are curious in how to live an embodied life rich with sacredness. In this Virtual Shala you have access to a vast amount of practices and enquiries that hope to satisfy your curiosity.
The Practice Library
The practice library is a space where you can drop into the felt experience of your body in embodied yoga and movement practice; a range of meditation and visualisation practices; breath work, sacred sound and rest. It's also a space where you can bask in the philosophy and science that underpins an embodied and sacred approach to life.
Your body is the most profound piece of technology you will ever know and this library offers you the opportunity to bask in its magnificence and mystery, again and again.
I ask for your patience as I expand the content. My vision is to build a foundation of fifty permanent practices and additional seasonal content that changes at equinox.
Fern has such a special gift of being able to take you on a journey into an embodied, felt experience. Using such beautiful language with imagery, metaphor and visualisation so cleverly created from a thorough knowledge and understanding of your body’s design. There is always a sense of such peace and clarity that reminds me who I am.
