My personal yoga practice has in recent years been inspired by the works of Vanda Scaravelli.
Using simple enquiry ‘within’. Being the witness.
Finding a seat as the sitting bones find connection with the ground.
Tuning into to the breath.
Watching the spine lengthening on the inhale.
Exhaling as the heaviness and pull of gravity grounds any points of contact to the mat.
Be it sitting, standing, walking, reaching or head standing… just this simple technique is fundamental to my practice and life.
Vanda grounding through the surface of the feet, toes and heels. Giving up-lift and space through her front body to backbend with grace.
