Having practised Hatha yoga for many years, Nicky discovered Scaravelli. Inspired by this approach to the body, she decided to become a teacher herself and now, fully qualified, runs classes at Cowdray.
Scaravelli yoga is all about waking up the spine. Rather than pushing our muscles to achieve a pose, this approach teaches us to open up the body gently through the spine, taking us into the posture without force. Anyone at any age and ability can benefit from this gentle but very powerful approach to yoga.
