Soft, elastic breath:

Returning for the fourth year, Scaravelli inspired yoga teacher Catherine Annis will teach a series of workshops designed to explore our relationship with our bodies, so that we can move with more ease, fluidity and elasticity, both on and off the mat.

Working with simple (and occasionally more complex) postures, we’ll explore how to practice with wisdom and subtlety and look at ways of adapting our practice so that we gradually begin to move more naturally and easily.

These classes will be helpful for anyone keen to learn more about their anatomy and how to expand their experience of yoga.

Each session will focus on a different area of our breathing mechanism:

  • Shoulders, upper back and neck – releasing long held tensions in this often-restricted area of our upper body
  • Demystifying the psoas – the deepest muscle in our body is connected to every part of our body, and is said to mirror our emotional self.  Releasing here can be transformational
  • Breath – our natural barometer, our breath responds to our emotional and physical states.  Discover gradual, subtle approaches towards breath and pranayama which naturally balance the body and mind.

Suitable for all levels

Join us to begin to soften and release any old, unhelpful and habitual patterns.  Learn to move with more ease and fluidity, and enjoy a return to more youthful, supple and enjoyable movement.

With over 35 years of experience, Catherine is well known for her imaginative and practical approach to yoga, and is a member of the yoga teacher training faculty at Triyoga, Europe’s leading yoga studio.  Originally a professional dancer, Catherine discovered yoga as a teenager and studied various styles of yoga including Sivananda, Iyengar, Astanga and various forms of Hatha yoga, before eventually gravitating 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.
