This workshop will focus on ways of releasing and energising the upper back. We will consider how smaller movements can inform and help to increase release throughout the whole spine, with a particular focus on the thoracic spine, shoulder girdle, head and neck. The workshop will include rotation movements, twists, side bending, flexion and extension. Applying Scaravelli principles of grounding, breathing and release of the spine we will bring attention to moving with more ease, focus and awareness to our practice, both in the simpler poses and the more dynamic poses of backbends and twists. The approach is suitable for all students.Read More
This workshop will focus on preparation and grounding for headstand and shoulderstand including rolling, weight bearing explorations, shoulder girdle and neck preparatory movements and complementary poses. Applying Scaravelli principles of grounding and breath awareness we will bring attention to refining effort, finding new ways to approach these poses with confidence and ease. The approach is suitable for those in the early stages of working with these poses as well as those more confident. Variations will be included for more experienced practitioners. Participants will benefit from the presence of two experienced teachers leading this workshop.Read More
