YOGA IS FOR EVERYONE
Whatever your beliefs, regardless of your body type, whatever your age, and path in life
"Yoga must not be practised to control the body; it is the opposite, it must bring freedom to the body, all the freedom it needs" - Vanda Scaravelli.
Scaravelli Inspired Yoga with Karen Ingman
The style of yoga that Karen teaches has been inspired by the pioneering approach of Vanda Scaravelli. The yoga postures, or asanas in sanskrit, are a framework for undoing tension and tightness, creating physical and mental flexibility and space, and for exploring and understanding our body and mind. The body loves gentleness, no forcing, no pushing, no pulling. This way of working with the body ensures ease and safety. This is a gentle yet demanding form of Hatha yoga that requires focused awareness and deep listening to the breath and the body, a deep surrender to the earth and gravity, which, together with strong engagement of the body's muscles, gives huge relief to the body, releases and undoes tension, creating space, uninhibited openness, and freedom in the spine. With this surrender and physical alertness, the breath changes, and lightness and vitality naturally follow as the spine unfolds like a wave.
Scaravelli inspired yoga benefits everyone. Regardless of your level of fitness, you will discover a stronger, more flexible, and healthier spine, with freer movement. You will enjoy increased energy, vitality and peace of mind. You will learn to go within and find your body's own inherent wisdom, so that the yoga postures become effortless, and your body and mind liberated.
Yoga classes, workshops, and retreats are suitable for all ages and all levels of yoga experience (beginner, advanced, and teachers).
"Those who have worked with Karen before will agree that the depth of her understanding of yoga and the eloquence of her words, movements and touch are something truly valuable"
Eve Cunard, Yoga teacher (Plettenberg Bay)
