Integrated Movement – It’s All Connected
Scaravelli Yoga Immersion Course - Scaravelli inspired yoga is unique and challenging – both to practice and, particularly, to teach. Vanda’s approach to the body offers a fresh way of looking at the body and the postures, which will nourish and inspire you in your yoga journey.
Each year this Scaravelli Yoga Immersion course evolves, focusing on a different aspect of how we approach our yoga practice in response to requests from current and returning attendees. In 2019 we’ll look at how our bodies function in:
Integrated Movement – It’s all connected.
Limited to just 20 attendees, the immersion course will help you:
∗ Explore fascia and biotensegrity and how they affect us in yoga
∗ Discover why we need the opposing forces of compression and tension and how they work together to create harmony
∗ Develop approaches to unwind the fascial web
∗ Discover a clearer understanding of the principles of this approach to yoga
∗ Deepen your knowledge of anatomy and structural relationships
∗ Explore how our tissues store energy and release it when we need a burst of explosive energy
∗ Develop fresh subtle approaches to adjusting / assisting your students
∗ Refresh and reinvigorate your own personal practice and teaching
The Importance of Self Practice
As teachers, we can only teach from our own practice. We will therefore focus on nurturing our own individual approach to self practice; refining and refreshing it, so that we can pass on our discoveries and revised understanding to others with skill and clarity. Each day on this immersion we’ll look at a different aspect or approach to practice, so that you leave with some fresh inspiration and answers to your specific questions.
This immersion course is designed specifically for yoga teachers, yoga teacher trainees and anyone with a serious interest in exploring their practice who would like to refine their practice and teaching. This Scaravelli Inspired Immersion Course is an opportunity to expand the ways we teach yoga as inspired by the work of Vanda Scaravelli, and evolves each year in response to the most current thinking in bodywork and movement practices and requests from current and returning attendees.
Immersion Course Outline
In 2019 we’ll look at Integrated Movement – It’s all Connected!
In yoga, we’re constantly looking for balance. Balance between effort and ease, expansion and gathering, tension and compression. Balancing these opposing forces helps us feel light, spacious and stress-free in our postures, as if we are in flow with the forces of gravity.
During this Immersion, we’ll be exploring how our understanding of Fascia and Biotensegrity help us to achieve this balancing act in our yoga practice and our everyday movements.
There will be a Posture Clinic session, dedicated to answering specific questions on your favourite (or least favourite!) posture or any aspects of the practice you would like to explore in more depth.
We’ll be joined by Gary Carter once more, and he will share his profound understanding of the body, and his innovative approach to anatomy and the art and science of moving with ease.
He will present a full day of explorations and share with us his unique understanding including the latest discoveries from the world of fascia.
Fascia and Biotensegrity
Viewing the anatomy of the body from the perspective of fascia, rather than the more classical anatomy of bones and muscles, gives us a new understanding of the relationship between muscle and fascia.
We’ll be looking at the role fascia plays in our habitual movement patterns and how it combines with our anatomy to create structure, support and shape. This helps us deepen our understanding of our movement in all its forms.
