‘ To twist, stretch and move around, is pleasant and enjoyable, a body holiday. There is an unexpected delight in meeting earth and sky at the same moment’ – Vanda Scaravelli
Vanda Scaravelli inspired an approach to Yoga that encourages you to ‘undo the doing’, to relax and move ‘without the slightest effort’. Whatever your experience of Yoga may be, we can support you to use gravity and the wave of the breath to ‘awaken’ your spine, your body, your mind and your spirit. This fully certified teacher training course provides you with the practical skills and expertise to teach a way of Yoga based on the principles of openness and exploration so that practice becomes a ‘body holiday’ and not a shape or stretch at which to aim.
Attention to the breath, to the connection to the ground, to alignment of the spine and flow of energy in the body resonate throughout the art and science of both Yoga and Shiatsu. Our expertise in the energy body, the flow of Qi, Ki, Prana is second to none; the Shiatsu College has been teaching these arts for 30 years and we are delighted to combine our knowledge of the meridian system with our love and practice of Scaravelli inspired Yoga.
We are branching out. In October 2019 we will be running this course in Portsmouth and Norwich
