Intuitive Yoga - The Scaravelli Approach
A Scaravelli-inspired approach to yoga helps us resist the urge to force and intimidate the body into textbook 'yogic' asanas. We ask the mind and ego to get out of the way; we observe, and we are aware, releasing expectations, and discarding old and unhealthy habits. We explore what the body itself can accomplish when we free it to function and move as it has evolved, or was created to do. Vanda Scaravelli's way was to strive less, in order to get what is really needed from a yoga practice. Her approach to working asks us to do only less. It sounds gratifying, and it really is; it’s also a little odd, and fun.
Bhakti Hatha Yoga
Unapologetically devotional, this Hatha class asks us to utilize the methodology of asana, breath, and mindful sequencing, as tools for liberating our hearts more deeply and reclaiming that which we hold sacred. Jivamukti Style. Inspired by the Bhakti Yoga tradition this practice helps us to dissolve more completely the negative aspects of the ego, which may otherwise bind us to our practice, thus serving as a source of transformative liberation. When we practice for the sake of another, with an open and courageous heart, then the conditions for transformation arise and all things become possible. Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu.
