Lisa lives in Brighton and enjoys being outdoors, walking her dog on the beach and discovering the Sussex countryside on weekend bike rides.
Teaching yoga informed by Scaravelli principles and training teachers for many years Lisa is also a Feldenkrais (awareness through movement) practitioner. She leads regular Feldenkrais and yoga workshops as both she and her students find the two approaches complement each other and make for engaging lessons that inform life and living.
We will begin with a 30 minute Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement lesson bringing particular attention to the movements of our eyes. We will sense how the way we use our eyes can affect the musculature and movement patterns of our spine and trunk generally - this can be most illuminating - but also potentially very soothing and regulating. Informed by the preceding focus on the eyes, the class will develop into the practice and exploration of yoga poses, practiced from a Scaravelli perspective, particularly those that include rotation.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
