The Embody Keys support a profound depth of conscious embodiment in multiple modes of practice - breath, mobility, strength, grace, all within integrated awareness. We return to our innate capacities in function, creative variation, insight, healing, and mastery of discernment and release.
The Keys invite us to return to our inherent evolutionary lineage of natural movement and spatial awareness within human geometries, driven by exploration, adaptation, and play. We remember what life feels like - absolutely intra-relational and interconnected. We are complex yet fluid, wild and intelligent - we are, all at once, primal, elemental, supple, and strong.
It's not a practice we do as much as it is what we become. We are, by nature, propelling the human race to a global realignment within Source, Earth, and the Cosmos.
in bone and breath
Imagine immersing yourself into primal yet familiar human shapes - a crouch, a lunge, or a squat. You begin to move rhythmically, exploring the possibilities, cultivating a sense of curiosity and wonder. You engage the movement, calling into tonal presence every fiber of your being while, simultaneously, you are experiencing profound spaciousness. You are recalling in your cells how it feels to know and express your inner wild and conscious animal. You begin to reorient yourself in core, in gravity, in bone and breath.
Phrases are intuitive, emergent sequences that are journaled and shared from personal practice, translated in the Embody Keys language of energy and structure. They are what you often find being taught at the end of a full class, yet they are powerful as stand-alone practices when repeated a few times or combined with other phrases. Groundwork invokes the natural, flowing, meditative movement through the seven Shape Keys that I sometimes call "Earth Dancing".
There will be many types of phrases - Key, Core, Balance, Transition, Gravity, and more - an expanding library of modular content that, ultimately, will inspire you to dive into your own intuitive practice while being extraordinarily aware of sustainability and strength, breath and space. You'll find endless combinations as you choose your own adventure.
There are 28 Embody Keys class recordings, captured via Zoom from December of 2020 through July of 2021. They are typically an hour and fifteen to an hour and a half in length. The experience is deep and progressive, with phrases guided at the end of each class.
Subscription is $30 monthly (may be cancelled anytime), and provides access to all video content.
The Embody Keys practice is outlined in growing branches of deep, diverse content in a cohesive structure and language that constantly evolves, allowing for the natural flex and adaptation of a natural system.
Are functional, fundamental, distilled human shapes. They are the gateways through which we explore the possibilities of movement and variation - all the colors and textures, nuance and dynamism of moving through time and space.
Describe translations of movement that support our exploration and awareness of our environment. They are functional phrases and articulations that are inherent within the Shapes.
Describe the innate wisdom of human function within complex creative movement. They are the point of interaction - of interfacing with the physio-energetic universe within and without.
Describe progressive levels of realized embodied awareness. They are meditations that eventually catalyze metaphor into integrated, real-world experience and awareness.
The Embody Keys practice will soon be inviting wider modes of access, including upcoming trainings and deep dives. Check the schedule for events and class info. Weekly public classes are held at Lumeria Maui, and you may now subscribe to the video channels for content designed to inspire and support your practice.

Embody Keys classes offer a glimpse into the origin of embodied wisdom practices such as Chi-Gong, Tai Chi, Yoga, Kung-Fu, and Dance, while cultivating your personal sense of intuitive articulation and expression in a regenerative, evolutionary practice. We are reminded that, at our core, we already know how to move, breathe, reset, and revive. It is an experience of recalling our primal function and purpose - to become fully empowered, creative expressions of Source.
Embody Keys classes are widely accessible and adaptable, playful, and complementary to all systems of movement.
