Scaravelli Yoga

What is Scaravelli Inspired Yoga?

Vanda Scaravelli’s main philosophy was the importance of learning from nature and 'awakening the spine'; that yoga is a part of our everyday life and we need to take the time to connect with and appreciate that.


Scaravelli inspired yoga is, for me, an understanding that movement is initiated from the spine, the breath and working in the gravitational field. In other words, I will help you connect with your breath, notice the movement and subtlety within your body, release held stress and find calm and balance. To achieve this I may use complementary techniques including qi kung, hatha yoga, breath (pranayama), gravity, somatic release, yoga nidra (awake sleep) and sound. I also sometimes incorporate poetry and readings into our practice together.


I am honoured to be part of the lineage of Scaravelli teachers. I have been extremely fortunate to have trained with some of the most influential Scaravelli teachers in Europe: Sandra Sabatini, John Stirk, Elizabeth Lutz Pauncz, Peter Blackaby, Sophy Hoare and more.

Yoga should be accessible for everyone. I work with people of all abilities and all ages, particularly those over 40. Classes have a maximum of 10 people so that I can give each student the attention they need. As a therapist, I bring my understanding of anatomy and the human condition into my teaching to help you get the most out of each session. And there is always room in my classes for some levity.

I require payment in advance to secure your booking, either via the booking site or bank transfer (please label any transfers clearly). 48 hours notice is required for cancellations. Cancellations after this time will not be refunded.


If you know that you have had contact with someone with COVID 19, please don’t attend in person sessions. 


For both online and in person classes have your own yoga mat, bottle of water and two cushions with you. 

At home sessions make sure the room is warm but not too hot.  Have a blanket handy for relaxation at the end.
