As a Scaravelli inspired yoga teacher, I am passionate about helping my students discover a deeper connection with their bodies and minds through the practice of yoga. In my classes, I focus on teaching students how to listen to their own bodies and move in ways that feel natural and comfortable to them.
One of the key principles of Scaravelli-inspired yoga is the idea of working with the lines of support provided by our skeletal bones. By noticing the sensations the central nervous system provides, we can better understand how to respond to sensory input and use our skeletal structure to minimise the effort needed to attain a movement, shape, or asana. This allows our large external muscles to relax and release tension, which can profoundly affect our breathing, stress levels, and overall well-being.
In my classes, I encourage students to let go of preconceived notions of what a yoga pose should look like and instead focus on moving in a way that feels good. Of course, this can be a challenging concept for some students. Still, as they start to let go of the tension in their muscles and release it into the support of their skeletal structure, they often experience a newfound sense of ease and freedom in their movements.
Ultimately, Scaravelli inspired yoga aims to help students cultivate a greater awareness of their bodies and minds and learn how to move with fluidity and grace. Through regular practice, students can develop a deeper understanding of their movement patterns and learn how to use them to improve their physical and mental well-being.
As a teacher, it is a joy to witness the transformations in my students as they discover the benefits of this unique and powerful approach to yoga.
