Yoga Inspired by Vanda Scaravelli with Julie Tucker

“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

Español

El yoga es un regalo. El yoga es mucho mas que estar en una postura determinada.

Yo te invito a conectar en mis clases con tus mas profundos lugares de bienestar; redescubriendo y restaurando los ritmos y energías naturales de tu cuerpo.
Es una oportunidad para reconocerte y dejarte ir, es como volver a conectar con tus zonas mas internas. El interés no radica solo en la forma, si no también en el camino que realizaremos durante el movimiento, ahí es donde reside la riqueza de la práctica. No tenemos ninguna obligación de realizar una postura perfecta, al contrario, permitiremos al cuerpo expressarse como él requiere. Además, el alumno descubrirá su poder para escuchar la musica que existe en su cuerpo a través de la conciencia abierta y empezará a fluir el movimiento.

English 

Yoga is a gift.  Yoga is so much more than just doing the postures.

In my classes I invite you to connect with your deep places of well being; rediscovering and restoring the natural inner rhythms and energy of the body.

As we reconnect with parts and places in our body,  there is an opportunity to acknowledge and let go.   Perhaps it is not the shape we make but the journey of moving into the posture  where the richness of the practice lies.  Starting from where the student is rather than feeing to conform to doing a perfect asana.  Instead the student is encouraged to learn to listen to the song of the body with kind curiosity and so movement becomes freer.

I am deeply inspired by the work of the late Vanda Scaravelli and teachers of her work including John Stirk, Diane Long and Liz Warrington who work with the relationship between the spine, the breathe, gravity and space to find freedom of movement and health in the body and mind.   Cultivating the feeling of being grounded, like a tree with its roots going down.  The lower part of the spine and the pelvis, legs and feet root with the force of  gravity so that the upper spine, chest, shoulders, arms and hands in response  can unfold and expand upwards and outwards like the branches of a tree. We are then able to move effortlessly, the body opening into lightness from the ground.

Rediscovering the breathe and its relationship with the spine; noticing how the breathe and spine naturally and intelligently work together to create a health giving rythmn of their own without our interference.  The mind can get out of the way, letting go and seeing what happens.

Meditation

My work and classes also acknowledge the meditation of yoga and include  meditation practice .

Yoga offers you the chance to listen and cultivate awareness through your body.  The breathe and movement can help us to slow down, observe and allow the activity of the mind and find a non-reactive response from a place of stillness and space within, reconnecting with the intelligence of our embodied experience of life.  Inside the stillness we can begin to observe and acknowledge what is happening.  Noticing sensations in the body and being with all of these. Opening the way to sense a harmonious natural state of presence.

Movement arises from a spacious inner awareness.  Your own unique ‘posture’ opens like a flower.

  2. Hi Julie,
    We would like to attend your YOGA and meditation course 21-24 JUNE 2018.
    We have lived in Castelldefels for 23 years.
    We currently attend Postural classes en el pueblo.
    We have also been involved in meditation for many, many years after we met the tibetan lamas in the UK in the late 70’s.

    1. Hi Pamela !

      Goodness my hugest apologies firstly. You wrote to me in 2018 about wishing to attend my yoga and meditation weekend from 21- 24th June. And now as I sit down to review my website I have found your message along with a few others on a back page … for some reason it never appeared and so I didn’t see it .
      I love reading about how you’ve been here for 23 years, your postural classes and would love to know more about your experience with the tibetan lamas in the late 70’s.

      If you haven’t already dismissed me for being so rude as to not reply to you !!! I would love to invite you to one of my classes to compensate !

      I am going to write directly to your email address too.

      I look forward to hearing back

      with warm wishes for your weekend
      Julie
