Embodied Skiing is a unique training experience designed for individuals and groups who seek increased productivity, improved interpersonal skills and greater control over their decision-making.
Andrea Spieth takes the proven techniques of embodiment coaching out of the seminar room and onto the slope. In the challenging mountain environment, cognition is overtaken by emotion, and the connection between our physical and mental worlds can be fully realised.
By becoming aware of the dynamic between body and mind, we can experience how our physical actions influence our thoughts, moods and emotions, and begin a process of real, transformative change.
about the day
Embodied Skiing is ideally suited for business people, managers and corporate teams, but will benefit anyone with an interest in self development and a passion for skiing. Coaching takes place on groomed slopes, and requires a level of skiing ability equivalent to skiing on black runs. The day is structured around the following three principles:
• A focus on internal instead of external perception (awareness of self)
• Noticing difference rather than trying to evaluate or measure
• Self-directed (as opposed to trainer-directed) learning processes
Participants will spend the day on the slope with Andrea, a certified Embodiment Coach and IVSI Instructor with more than 20 years' experience training and coaching ski instructors. The workshop includes an introduction to embodiment theory and technique, activities and tasks on the ski slope (solo and in pairs), and group feedback / reflection sessions.
"Since the embodied skiing seminar I've been more aware of how my body reacts in challenging situations. Being more conscious of it, and understanding the signals, has helped me to better manage such challenges."
"The day was a really good investment. Embodied skiing has made me more mindful of the exchange between my mind, body and energy, and changed the involuntary responses of my body into conscious action."
"I hope that as many people as possible will experience this great way to develop body awareness."
"What I discovered for myself was quick learning and empathy. So through a concentrated look and letting go of my thoughts I could copy and feel many movement sequences in the same moment."
