Marcela Enriquez Wakeham
Principal teacher on Still Flowing Yoga Teacher Training
Marcela is a senior yoga teacher, Qi Gong and pilates instructor and specialises in teaching experiential anatomy and physiology through movement.
From a deeply introspective practice and experiential knowledge Marcela has developed clear insight and understanding of the anatomy and physiology of movement, which she expresses in a uniquely fascinating and accessible way.
Marcela’s teachings are deeply rooted in a somatic sense of self and the perspective of one’s own life experiences which encompass body, mind and spirit. By bringing our attention to the inner-self, our breath and felt sense, she believes we can use movement to increase awareness and establish deeply restorative states of meditation.
Marcela’s early career centred around dance and choreography. She is authorised to facilitate Dance of Awareness™ workshops, a therapeutic dance form, licensed by Tim Brown and Clare Osbond – the creators of this group based therapy. In her own practice she is a devoted practitioner of Continuum Movement.
