Familiarize yourself with a sensory and very safe approach to yoga practice. Begin to notice what it is like to be inside the lanscape of the body. We don’t have a body; we are a body.
I don’t expect students to perform perfect postures/shapes, I encourage them to notice what is happening in the body, to be interested in small changes ; to find out how to be comfortable in their own skin.
Above all, as a Scaravelli-inspired teacher, I follow Vanda Scaravelli’s watchwords:
.. …Do not kill the instinct of the body for the glory of the pose….
