Henrietta Brice-Smith – Embodied Resilience and Senior Dynamic Yoga Teacher/IYN Yoga Elder

Henrietta Brice-Smith, Yoga Instructor in Jersey

Henrietta Brice-Smith
Yoga Instructor

Henrietta has been practicing and teaching yoga for over 20 years. She has recently completed a course in Embodied Resilience, to include Somatic Retuning, a moving practice punctuated by stillness (its purpose to simply become intimate with the body by way of feeling the sensations that are generated by the body). Somatic Intuning, a stillness practice of intimacy and Somatic Attuning, a practice of shared intimacy.

In Dynamic Yoga, Henrietta’s teaching is clearly grounded in vinyasakrama (the art of step-by-step instruction) which deeply supports the body within postures and invites each person to journey towards a deeper understanding of the inherent intelligence of their body.

Henrietta runs international retreats and workshops.

“Yoga is about self inquiry and discovering the innate wisdom within. Learn how to feel what is actually happening in your body rather than what you can do. Become intimate with your body by feeling the sensations being generated by your body, especially by refining movement and action to soften the sensations that reveal the vulnerable presence of the joints. In this way your mind learns how to understand, support and respect the intelligence of the body.”
