Body Based Therapy
~ A 3-day Workshop with Devaraj & Abhi ~

Thursday 13 June till Sunday 16 June 2024

Working with the body in therapy is radical and exciting. The greater the extent to which we can feel our body, the more grounded and open we become. Our resilience increases and our life just gets better.

This intense, 3-day workshop combines the theory and practice of Body Based Therapy. You will both learn the theory and have a deep experience. The theoretical part, led by Dev, will support you to understand how our brain comes to repress energy and emotion and the negative effects that this has on our life. The practical sessions will allow you to overcome these limitations and let your energy and your love shine through.

We will be working with Bioenergetics, Breathwork, Emotional Expression and Reichian techniques. Suitable for beginners or the more experienced.


  • Theoretical understanding of body based therapy.
  • Understanding repression: the body, trauma and conditioning.
  • Holding Patterns and Dead Zones.
  • How to release the past and move on.
  • The resistance layer.


  • Bioenergetics
  • Reichian techniques (Including De-armouring)
  • Breathwork
  • Emotional Expression
  • Osho Active Meditations and Somatic mindfulness
  • Sharings

‘There is so much in this work that is revolutionary and radical. Whether you seek to work on yourself, or are working with clients out in the world, I guarantee this course will give you many “ah-hah” moments, and allow you to create huge change.’



  • A better understanding of how the mind and body interrelate from an experiential, rather than intellectual, perspective.
  • Knowledge of the body-based practices that you can utilise at home to keep going deeper and to keep your energy moving.
  • The chance to release past trauma and feel more embodied


  • Anyone who wants to experience working with the body in therapy
