Compelling Movement-Based Educational Group Experiences
For adults & children, regular practitioners & geeks, teachers, students, artists...
Field Work Practicums
These are inquiry based multi-disciplinary movement sessions playing the edge of art, health and practice as research. Improvisation techniques inform the live nature of the education space where yogasana and freestyle movement collide with various Embodiment Inquisitor activities informed by the group body-mind. Upcoming Practicums
Yoga In The Field
For those who love yoga and are open to what happens when we intersect with other modalities and bring our discoveries back to our own practice and lives. Essentially this is a Lab like environment with directed & personal inquiries. Upcoming Classes
The YOga LAb (TYL) TEachers Incubator
We diligently take our trainings - TTs & PDs, then return to the studio to do our best to assimilate and keep evolving our classes. This is not a simple process, it can often feel isolating, confusing and well yes, repetitious. I've been there. I've taught all over the place, many different communities in many contexts. One thing I craved most was an accessible consistent mentor, so when I opened The Yoga Lab Melbourne, I made mentorship and 'familyesque' care for professional and personal development for my staff and myself, a central tenet.

Now that studio is no longer, it's clear to me that The Yoga Lab's new manifestation is a mobile professional development service. A structured durational lab (experience & process) that supports you & your colleagues in the comfort and reality of your studio and community. I steward the ship, (and may bring in guest teachers from the original TYL), but your colleagues are just as much involved in the mentoring and constructive critical conversation. Inside this nest-like laboratory you can try shit out, muck up, play, grow, shed, change, debate and formulate with a collective of 'like-mindeds' crafting with you because we’re in it together. This is not yoga specific either. The art of teaching and facilitating is a great love of mine. So an incubator can be designed to support the diversity of your team and offerings.
Identify and claim your skills, ideas and work inside this conversation of yoga, dance, performance. Learn how to bring the many colours of your life experiences, investigations and expertise to your teaching. Consider your ever essential professional sustainability – physically, intellectually, emotionally & creatively. Become a conscious and skilled craftsperson in the content, design and delivery of your work. Redefine your teaching & offering. What kind of conversation are you currently having? What is the conversation you want to have and how might you have that?
Little People In The Field
Sessions for 5-12 year olds full of moving, yogasana, play and storytelling exploring an aspect of our design. Described by the children as an 'active science' class!
What's this thing we call alignment and how does that translate to me, my patterns and practice? Teasing out what it means to practice with ease, and what's happening as I coordinate to move, think & play.
"Sustainability begins with our cellular intelligence."
A little more about Field Work and the field...
Camilla places great emphasis on the value of kinaesthetic awareness, embodied intelligence and the ‘truth‘ that lies in lived experience.
As omni-dimentional beings we need to cultivate and share this essential knowledge. It is our human inheritance. When we sense, feel into and come to ‘know’ how we arise from our intelligent flesh and explore what that tells us about living in this world, we are attending directly to our personal and collective vitality and sustainability. As highly integrated organisms intimately woven into our environment, we are the Field.
Field Work Practicums offer adults an opportunity to venture the field, grow their understanding, capabilities & capacity, relish in their dynamic aliveness and take responsibility for our ecosystem.
Field Work Practicums are active investigative research spaces employing experiential & freestyle movement, philosophy, yogasana, play-based activities, somatic enquiry, meditation, discussion - all hanging around an improvisational framework.
