The InBody Series

This series is inspired by the title of our first and favorite annual event: In-Body means simply to put or be within the body, while em-body means to cause with the body. One is a process of moving outwardly (embody) the other to move in and within (inbody). Both are significant, but in a global 21st century culture that promotes external image, high performance, and accomplishment on external standards, we want to bring this HOME to those who understand more than any other what it means to not be able to compete with those expectations. 

We have to live differently.

As we embody what it means to survive with our without a sense of choice, this InBody online and in-person series of lectures and experiences are made to help integrate what we see, feel, taste, smell, and hear outside of our bodies and notice them within the body itself. Bring them in, and re-connect with that thing which makes our survival so much of a struggle. 

From academic lectures on rare disorders and complications to sound bathing, healing oils and music, Umi hopes to lighten your load. 

Classes are offered in 6 week or 8 weeks blocks with rest periods between.

Most classes have both in-person and online options! There is much you can do from the comfort of your home. 

Our wellness philosophy:

Why use a club when a feather works even better?

We design our classes to specially fit those with complex health challenges like:

Ehlers-Danlos Syndromes/Hypermobile spectrum Disorder

Genetic disorders


Chronic fatigue



Autoimmune Conditions

This thoughtfulness of nuance in our offerings make them MORE than suitable for all. the details of creating work for the most challenging bodies speaks deeply and more effectively to all bodies.

See our community calendar or events page for upcoming activities!
