Vanda, Scaravelli, Quote, Yoga, training, body, freedom, Catherine Annis“Yoga should not be a training for body control;
on the contrary it must bring
freedom to the body.”

Vanda Scaravelli




Vanda Scaravelli has inspired many people, and continues to do so even to this very day. Her style of yoga was pioneering, and many yoga teachers today base their practice on what is referred to as ‘Scaravelli Inspired Yoga’.

I would highly recommend the following book to anybody who would like to read more about Vanda Scaravelli and her approach to yoga.

Awakening the SpineVanda Scaravelli, book, health, vitality, energy, bks Iyengar:

Yoga for Health, Vitality and Energy (Paperback)
B.K.S.Iyengar (forward),
Vanda Scaravelli (Author)

A long awaited reprint of this classical work revised by Vanda’s daughter and based on extensive notes left by the author allowing the book to be published for the first time as Vanda intended. Even if you have the first edition, it’s still worth investing in this one to see how Vanda’s ideas subtly changed. Superbly illustrated with iconic pictures of Vanda as well as inspiring photographs and images to set the tone. A book to treasure.
