Scaravelli Inspired Online Classes via Zoom
Due to the Corona Virus situation, I'm now teaching all my Scaravelli inspired online classes via Zoom.
I am enormously grateful that wherever we are in the world, the internet enables us to maintain our connection and continue to breathe, move and practice together. I look forward to seeing you in class again soon.

Live Online Yoga
Yoga is the practice of cultivating awareness of the present moment. Yoga can help us:
∗ Develop awareness of mind and body
∗ Quiet a busy mind
∗ Calm stress and anxiety
∗ Feel more alive and conscious in each moment
∗ Enhance our focus and attention
∗ Improve coordination and proprioception
∗ Balance the nervous system
∗ Support healthy immune function
Keep Calm and Carry On!
Whilst the Corona Virus situation continues to change on an almost daily basis, it's wonderful to see your smiling faces on the mat. These classes provide a welcome break, a space for us to breathe, move and simply be together.
As someone in his 70s and not the most flexible, I have found Catherine’s yoga classes a revelation. I love that she uses her knowledge of anatomy as well as yoga to encourage us to explore ways and effects of moving. She is very helpful in her individual comments and so her classes are always stimulating as well as fun.
Yoga with Catherine is an enriching experience. She creates a relaxed environment that allows me to explore what I’m doing in that particular moment, to reflect on how it feels and what it brings to me, and integrate that experience before continuing. This makes the practice of yoga a lot more fulfilling and beneficial. Her classes are anatomically informative and clearly explained making it easy to understand what I am being asked to do and more importantly why. Equally, Catherine’s personality and delivery makes her classes enjoyable, and fun experience, while her passion and enthusiasm are infectious. Catherine has a wealth of knowledge and her professionalism and work ethic is second to none.
Catherine's classes are an essential survival remedy for lockdown. Sanity and calm with some exercise thrown in, and a touch of humour.
Catherine is a wonderful teacher who combines technical expertise with a down-to-earth approach. She teaches you to tune into your own body and respond to what you need, rather than try to recreate specific shapes. At the same time she grounds every class in a deep understanding of human anatomy and mechanics, which is particularly valuable for anybody working with injuries or back issues. I find that her classes soothe me while still building strength and stability. I think they have also improved the way I move in my day-to-day life. Highly recommend!
You will never leave a class taught by Catherine without learning something about yourself/your body. And along the way, you will have had some fun. Only last week, I had to imagine "riding a fat horse" .....
Practicing yoga with Catherine is a delicious opportunity to truly explore what it means to be in a body and, to focus so completely, that the world outside is completely forgotten for the duration of the class. Catherine's yoga is very grounding and intuitive. The body feels lighter, more open and the mind quieter, less busy.
