Yoga journey and Qualifications
I have been practicing yoga for nearly twenty years now. About eight years ago I discovered Scaravelli-inspired yoga and never looked back. I completed my first Scaravelli-inspired yoga teacher training yoga (200hr) in 2015 with the Acquaviva School of Yoga (Independent Yoga Network accredited), and am currently half way through the second teacher development training (200hr) with Dot Bowen in Brighton, England.
teaching focuses on how you can create a deeper understanding of the yoga practice, cultivating the conditions that give rise to the combined freeing of the spine in conjunction with the pull of gravity and the overall ‘felt sense’ of the breath. By learning to follow the nature of our structure, our internal shapes, we end up going with the body and not against it. We ultimately find fluid movement and lightness with the potential to have free range of movement, restriction free, generating economy of body use…which after all.. is our birthright!
Exploring the spine as a central driver for motion we explore an important aspect of healthy motion in the body allowing movements to feed from the spine to the limbs and feed the limbs back to the spine. We explore these considerations to create potential ease and freedom to our movement life.
At the heart of Scaravelli yoga - a gentle yet demanding form of Hatha yoga inspired by the work of Vanda Scaravelli - lies the idea of undoing tension and ‘awakening the spine’. By turning our attention inward we learn what we need, so that we can work with the body and not against it. As we soften, listen and engage with the intrinsic elements of life: the breath, gravity, space and touch, we start working more intuitively, compassionately and intelligently. We develop a kinder way of moving, with less effort and more curiosity.
In this practice we are encouraged to explore the body and its relationship with the world around. We are not so much concerned about doing a posture ‘right’, but are more interested in what the posture is doing for us
