A collection of beautiful and stunning yoga poses and asanas in silhouette featuring Scaravelli inspired yoga teacher Catherine Annis.
Catherine teaches yoga inspired by the pioneering approach of Vanda Scaravelli. It’s a gentle yet demanding form of Hatha yoga, which concentrates on developing core strength through releasing tension and creating length in the spine. It uses the breath and gravity to allow the spine to unfold like a wave, allowing the uninhibited opening and energising of the whole body.
Scaravelli inspired yoga is the new, stress free yoga, that benefits everyone. Classes are suitable for all ages and all levels of yoga experience (beginner, intermediate or advanced). Regardless of your level of fitness, you will discover a longer, stronger and more flexible spine, a calmer mind, and begin to enjoy increased energy and ease of movement.
Catherine is a member of the yoga teacher training faculty at triyoga in London, and is well known for her imaginative and practical approach to yoga.
Originally a professional dancer, she discovered yoga as a teenager, and has been practicing for over 30 years. Having studied various styles of yoga including Sivananda, Iyengar, Astanga and various forms of Hatha yoga, she eventually gravitated to the teachings of Vanda Scaravelli.
Catherine’s daily yoga practice and teaching focuses on deepening physical awareness and alignment to reveal and release the natural freedom of the body, particularly the spine.
She holds a Masters degree in ballet studies, and is a qualified Thai massage practitioner, and it is this interest in the body which informs and inspires her teaching.
Several years ago, she noticed that there was a need for a more intensive course, suitable for teachers and serious students. In response to this need, Catherine created one of the fewScaravelli inspired yoga teacher training intensives, which is now an annual event. Catherine teaches Scaravelli yoga privately, on a 1:1 basis in London, and teaches yoga classes and workshops at triyoga in Primrose Hill, Soho and Chelsea, and at the Life Centre in Notting Hill Gate.
Throughout the year she runs Scaravelli inspired yoga workshops in both London and Sussex. She is regularly invited to teach for The British Wheel of Yoga and runs workshops at various venues around the UK.
Since 2005 Catherine has run successful Scaravelli inspired yoga retreat weekends and holidays in Sussex, and further afield in Europe, India and Turkey.
