Employing the force of gravity, Scaravelli inspired yoga encourages individuals to work with the body not against it. Using the breath enables the development of self awareness and the ability to release into a pose; reducing tension in the body.
Students are encouraged to take responsibility of their own body in a spirit of self compassion and intelligent enquiry.
"Do not look at your body like a stranger but adopt a friendly approach towards it. Watch it, listen to it, observe it's needs, it's requests and even have fun." – Vanda Scaravelli
