About me… I have been practising yoga for over 20 years and completed my 500 hour teacher training course with the Inner Yoga Trust in August 2018. The Inner Yoga Trust is the UK’s leading body for ‘Scaravelli Inspired’ yoga teacher training, founded in 1993.
About Inner Yoga… ‘Inner yoga is movement from the core of our being. The body has the intelligence to know how it needs to move. The classical yoga postures, the asanas, originally developed from this intelligence. The structure developed for the asanas is known as Hatha yoga. Inner yoga takes these classical asanas, together with the philosophy of yoga and its spiritual aspects, and teaches them in a way that can transform the body, mind and emotions, touching the heart of our being.’ https://www.inneryoga.org.uk/about-inner-yoga-trust/inner-yoga-teaching/
The philosophy behind Roots & Wings Yoga… is not about forcing the body into postures but allowing it to move freely, creating space in the body and the mind. This yoga is for anyone who wants some time during their busy week to move their body but also relax and take time to just be. It is therefore suitable for beginners and the more experienced alike.
‘The pull of gravity under our feet makes it possible for us to extend the upper part of the spine, and this extension allows us also to release between the vertebrae. Gravity is like a magnet attracting us to the earth, but this attraction is not limited to pulling us down, it also allows us to stretch in the opposite direction towards the sky.’ Vanda Scaravelli (Awakening the Spine)
the spine moves and extends
between the ground below
and the sky above
and the body fits into this dimension
where the feet can develop roots
where the spine can dance
and where the arms one day can turn into wings’
Sandra Sabatini (Breath: The Essence of Yoga)
