Grounding: From the feet upwards
Join us to explore gravity and the sensation of grounding, and how these elements combine to release and awaken the spine, and bring a sense of lightness and natural ease into our yoga practice.
During this workshop, we’ll develop a deep attentiveness and inner awareness of how we move into, and within, the asanas. We’ll learn how to work with gravity to gently encourage the body to open, creating space and lift through the body.
In this workshop, you will learn to:
∗ understand and explore how gravity affects the mechanics of our movements
∗ harness the grounding power of the earth to create ease in movement
∗ use the pull of gravity to unwind old patterns and replace them with new beneficial approaches
∗ invite our movements to gradually release and reveal space and simplicity in our asana practice
Join me for this Scaravelli inspired yoga workshop at the Hatton Park Village Hall on Barcheston Dr, Hatton Park just south of Birmingham on October 10th, 2020.
Scaravelli inspired yoga is a stress-free yoga that benefits everyone. Classes are suitable for all ages and all levels, from beginners to those with many years of experience. Regardless of your level of fitness, you will discover a longer, stronger and more flexible spine, a calmer mind, and begin to enjoy increased energy and ease of movement.
It uses the breath and gravity to allow the spine to unfold like a wave, allowing the uninhibited opening and energising of the whole body. As Vanda explains in the opening page of her book “Awakening the Spine”:
“There is a division in the centre of our back, where the spine moves simultaneously in two opposite directions: from the waist down towards the legs and the feet, which are pulled by gravity, and from the waist upwards, through the top of the head, lifting us up freely”.
Vanda’s teachings are miraculously simple. She encouraged her students to do less, feel more. To unwind, release unnecessary tension, and begin to simply be. “You must only undo. The more you undo, the more you are and the more things come to you. Don’t try to become; you are.”
