In-Person & Online Scaravelli-inspired Yoga classes with Erling.
A small group, in-person yoga class at my home yoga studio, combining a live Zoom stream for my online students. Online and In-person Scaravelli-inspired Yoga is easily accessible and a joy.
Scaravelli inspired. Yoga feels very natural and intuitive. Human movement is natural, and our yoga practice should support it. Sometimes, in modern postural Yoga, the complete opposite happens. Erling’s approach to teaching encourages you to embody your practice fully. For example, noticing what you feel as you move in and out of postures.

Scaravelli-inspired Yoga is a modern yoga style.
Scaravelli Inspired Yoga is a modern yoga style. We (humans) are neurological organism that reacts to our environment. How we have responded has shaped us throughout our lives. As children, we repeat movement patterns that become habituated. As we grow and age, we will develop our unique body map.
These movement patterns need practice regularly. If we don’t, we lose mobility. In the modern world, we are not active enough. If your mapped patterns restrict compliant whole-body movements, stiffness in joints and other complications can occur. Scaravelli inspired Yoga as a well-structured intelligent Yoga practice that provides a framework to address these patterns.
How do you feel?
Focusing on how we feel, the sensations in all our movements and our neurological map are revealed. How well we understand our unique map will determine how well we move in yoga postures or asanas. Classical Yoga tends to emphasise the asana or pose. However, for many students, this aim creates conflict. Unless they are naturally very flexible to start with, they force themselves to achieve the shape. In my opinion, that’s not the aim or the meaning of Yoga.
Scaravelli inspired Yoga is known for encouraging intuitive movement. Scaravelli Inspired Yoga is a Yoga practice that respects the ‘revolutionary’ understanding of Yoga shared by Vanda Scaravelli during the later years and through her book ‘Awakening the Spine. Vanda Scaravelli, the namesake of Scaravelli, inspired Yoga, was born in 1908 in Florence, Italy, to a highly musical and intellectual family.
The feeling of Yoga.
The sense of feeling is essential in Scaravelli yoga, noticing the sensations the central nervous system provides you. Listening provides a framework for how you respond to sensory input. We work the lines of support your skeletal bones offer. Minimising the effort needed to attain the movement, shape, or asana means the large external muscles can work less. They can release and relax. As a result, when there is less tension, you find more movement. More fluidity and your spine can move more freely. Freedom has always been the goal of Yoga. If you would like a to one yoga lesson book, you can.
