What is Scaravelli yoga?

Vanda Scaravelli was born in Italy in 1908, into an artistic and musical family. She didn't come across yoga until she was in her 40s, when the violinist Yehudi Menuhin introduced her to his teacher BKS Iyengar. She also studied pranayama with TKV Desikachar, and philosophy and meditation with Jannu Krishnamurthi. Inspired by them all, but also guided by her own innate sense of the body's rhythms and natural patterns of movement, she developed the style of yoga that now bears her name.

Vanda’s key innovation was her focus on working with gravity: surrendering the weight of the body and dropping the bones towards the earth, and using that grounding sensation to help extend the spine up to the heavens.
