Type of Event
This is a yoga holiday where you have a chance to practice Scaravelli Inspired yoga and stay in an authentic 'pueblo blanco' (white village) of Andlaucia. You're invited to join us in Spring when the countryside is carpeted with wild flowers.
Accomodation is in Self catering apartments in El Antiguo Juzgado where the yoga is based or in local hotels. There are lovely local restaurants where you can sample traditional dishes and tapas.
We will be following the Scaravelli Inspired approach to yoga which includes discarding 'fixed' ideas of how yoga should look or be done and allowing your full body awareness from within to 'open' the body. Vanda did not believe in 'forcing', 'pushing' or 'pulling' in your yoga practice but rather in finding a way to open with 'effortless ease'.This approach involves cultivating attentiveness, working with gravity and the breath to awaken the spine. In particular we will look at what it means to work from your core, to work fluidly and with 'effortless effort'.
Those with experience of yoga will find it a chance to explore how to enrich their yoga practice with many tips and techniques for increasing flexibility and working more deeply.
Beginners should find it accessible to every type of body, no matter age, shape, size or degree of flexibility. One of the myths about yoga is that you have to be flexible to do it. You don't. Flexibility is a by-product of yoga not a pre-condition to doing it. You learn to cultivate an awareness of what is limiting you and so how to use your body in a completely different, liberating, way. When you free the body in this way the mind, the heart and your whole sense of being also become freer.
