General Day - Gravity and Grounding

10th March 2018
at Billingshurst Centre

General Day - Gravity and Grounding

Tutor: Lisa Mc Rory

Date: 10th March 2018

Time: 10:00 - 16:00

Location: Billingshurst Centre

Type of Event: Open Day

Places Available: 14

This will be a day to discover a felt sense of gravity and grounding through Vanda Scaravelli’s unique style of yoga.

During the day we will practice  a range of postures which

Involve a transfer of weight. This focus will allow us to practice flowing sequences, as well as balances.

We will notice our changing relationship with the ground and with gravity as we move and breathe. A felt sense of this rather elusive concept ‘gravity’ will also inform our understanding of that other principle- often equally elusive – ‘grounding’.

As such we will explore the following questions:

Can we anchor and feel grounded without collapsing?

Can we grow and release without ‘over lengthening’ and introducing tension?

Can we refine effort so that we move with more comfort and ease?

 Throughout the day we will practice with attention and awareness so that our Yoga is a supportive of ourselves as a whole.

 The day will include some quiet sitting and relaxation

 Central to Lisa’s approach to teaching is an acceptance of where each student is

with their own Yoga so that practice is sensitive and without struggle.

She feels influenced by her own Yoga teachers - Mary Stewart, Monica Voss, Pete

 Blackaby, amongst others and by what she learns from teaching her students.

She is also influenced by other movement disciplines that inform her understanding,

 most notably the Feldenkrais Method and is currently a second year Student on the

 4 year Feldenkrais, Awareness Through Movement training.
