"The yoga I teach was originally inspired by the work of Vanda Scaravelli...

as well as by those that have been called to further her work. It is an approach to yoga practice that places its emphasis on quality of movement above anything else, and I consider it to be an invitation, not only to reclaim the natural freedom,and strength that is our birthright, but also to reawaken the simple joy of being embodied"

"Scaravelli inspired Yoga involves a deep personal process of transformation through developing awareness of, and exploring and simplifying relationships between; the pull of gravity from beneath, the action of the breath, and the potential liberation and elongation of the spine that can arise from those relationships."

" It is a principle that is both revolutionary and absolutely common-sense, and can be the foundation that forms into a fascinating life-long journey of self-inquiry that somehow sheds light on the true nature of being human ..."


"To my understanding the word 'yoga' means to bind, to put back together, to reintegrate. It has nothing to do with achieving postures by distorting the body, but it has everything to do with creating the unique condition of harmony and synergy within the structure, and by reflection, within the human being. When this unique state is achieved, the body is suddenly capable of moving in extraordinary ways with simplicity and grace."
