Event description

Description

Our spine is a spectacular piece of engineering. With 33 interlocking bones, 24 moving vertebrae and 139 synovial joints, it is the initiator and driver of all our movement. It’s intimately involved in all our movements, from sitting, to standing, running, walking and breathing.

In yoga, it’s at the heart of our practice. It feels good to consciously initiate our movements from our spines and supports us in becoming more integrated and centred. This integration informs and benefits our bodies in all movements, complex and simple, so we begin to move with more ease and grace.

During this practical yoga workshop we’ll learn more about:

· the anatomy of the spine and its relationship to the whole body

· its role as housing and protector of the central nervous system

· how the spine initiates and responds to our movements

· its delicacy, strength and adaptability

Finally, we’ll explore the central question: Can we learn to feel our spine, and relate to it as the central organ of all our movement? And can this understanding help us to become more centred and integrated, in all our movements, simple and complex?

Join Catherine to increase your awareness and understanding of the spine, and how it acts at the heart of our yoga practice.

Catherine Annis is well known for her imaginative and practical approach to yoga. She has created Intelligent Yoga Teacher training, a 300 hour Yoga Alliance Professionals accredited training with Peter Blackaby and Gary Carter, and has taught the Triyoga teacher training for over 6 years.

Originally a professional dancer, Catherine discovered yoga as a teenager, and has been practicing for more than 35 years. Having explored Sivananda, Iyengar, Astanga and various forms of Hatha yoga, she eventually gravitated to the teachings of Vanda Scaravelli.

Catherine’s practice and teaching focuses on deepening physical awareness and alignment to reveal the natural freedom of the body, particularly the spine. She is an attentive and thoughtful teacher, and highly skilled at adapting poses to accommodate all levels and types of students, so that everyone leaves class feeling that they have made a fresh discovery about their yoga practice.

Catherine teaches regular weekly classes in London and leads retreats at various locations in India and Europe. She created the first Scaravelli inspired immersion course, which is now held annually in Sussex, and is regularly invited to teach workshops throughout the UK, and internationally.
