Paul Cohen 

Bone Yoga and Bone Yoga Bodywork 

New Zealand


“The focus of my work is to help people find, for themselves, new ways to be present in the world with more ease”.

The combination and the interplay of Bone Yoga and Bone Yoga Bodywork is taking Paul’s work to new exciting places. This exploration is deeply refreshing and offers the potential for endless creativity.

“I’m loving my work and my teaching more than ever. I’m constantly learning and it motivates me.”

Session 1: Bone Yoga 

Bone Yoga focuses on our skeletal system, bones, joints, ligaments and fascia. This includes the energetic and emotional vibrations that are held within the bones and tissues of the body.


Bone Yoga uses gentle movement sequences that focus on and engage the joints. Particular importance is placed on the range of motion of our joints which are determined by the architecture of the joint itself and the tension and vibration in the ligaments and fascia.

The yoga and gentle somatic engagements move within the easeful range of motion of our joints. For many, this will give a new dimension of safety and stability to yoga.

The slow, mindful engagement in Bone Yoga allows the opportunity to feel and adjust the way we move and introduce clearer patterns of movement in the body. This has the potential to change default physical and emotional patterns. Bone Yoga engages, stimulates and activates every bone, joint, tendon, ligament and major muscle group.

Bone Yoga can be used therapeutically on its own and in conjunction with other yoga and physical/energetic practices.

Bone Yoga can help to develop your relationship with your body mechanics and functioning, assist with postural alignment and help with ease of movement.

Bone Yoga is mindful, restful and restorative, and has been beautifully described as "Yoga from the inside out".

Bone Yoga is an exploration and an opportunity to discover our bone energy through working with the breath, mind and movement: it develops our relationship with our core self, held in our bones

Session 2: The Skeleton

We will be exploring the skeleton in parts and as a functioning whole.

- The Axial skeleton, our core, our support, and the energetic significance.

- The Appendicular skeleton, our relationship with ourselves, our environment and others.

- Who are we and how are we.

- Bone Yoga meditation. 

- Rib cage breathing.

- Exploring standing in relationship and how we can be present with less effort and more ease.

- Qi Gong movement to support our skeleton.

Session 3: The Energetics of Relationship and Touch

This will be a hands on experiential workshop exploring the importance of skilled conscious touch.

An incredibly informative workshop for those who work with people, healers and bodyworkers, yoga teachers or those who are just keen to understand and explore the interplay and dynamics of conscious touch.

Invaluable if you get affected by other peoples energy or if you feel vulnerable and open or have experienced touch that has been painful or invasive.

This workshop explores skills that will help you understand your own energetic make up and boundaries, and offers touch skills that feels safe and supports us in our relationship with ourselves and the world around us.
