The Embodied Kitchen Studio

The Embodied Kitchen Studio is hosted by Renee Gahan and Amanda Callahan of Renee Gahan Yoga and Callywood Farms. Renee and Amanda are yogi and foodie friends who believe deeply in creating home practices for both. Renee is a yoga and meditation instructor at Clemson University. She teaches at the intersections of mindfulness and psychology, functional movement and yoga asana, breathwork and liberating insight. Her practice and teachings from the beginning have been about coming home to the self, embodiment, and living with grace. Amanda is a self taught cook who decided to start farming to feed her intense desire to cook good food. She and her husband manage pork, poultry, mushrooms, and vegetables. Amanda’s food interests revolve around foraging and cooking wild foods, sourdough baking (and ancient grains), and the preservation (particularly fermentation) of home grown food.

The Embodied Kitchen Studio is a joint yoga and food workshop that aims to give novice to intermediate yoga and home cooks a solid backbone to develop yoga and cooking practices without the confines of yoga videos or recipes. How we can develop our own skills that celebrate the seasons and nourish our bodies? The Embodied Kitchen Studio aims to facilitate this growth through a carefully curated structure:

4 seasons: Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall
Month 1: Seed movement, Seasonal ingredients, how to source them, how to cook them
Month 2: Posture exploration, Kitchen technique
Month 3: Building a sequence, Gather to showcase the seasonal ingredients and dishes and celebrate. After our yoga practice we will set a table to celebrate the season. Participants are invited to bring a dish or craft/decor to celebrate in style!

In The Embodied Kitchen Studio we are offering the time to explore, seek, and experiment with what we are doing in our humanness, in our way of life, in our yoga practice, and in our kitchen. By taking the spirit of studio time as kitchen time, we can make the bridge stronger between our yoga practice and how we are at the very heart of the home – the kitchen. We can discover what heals us in yoga and in kitchen, what sustains us, and what nourishes us so that we can offer these very same things to the people around us – a healing, supportive and nourishing presence.
