Katariina Yoga for Health and Wellbeing will be offering a variety of workshops and other activities for the coming season, and year. Many of these activities are organised together with yoga teachers and other masters from different locations, so I can say the offer will be international.
I am proudly presenting the event for November. The two teachers are yoginis and lovely ladies with years of experience in yoga and teaching, in the Vanda Scaravelli tradition. We will be in good hands.
Sandra Sabatini is one of the foremost teachers of the Scaravelli approach to yoga. Sandra studied with the legendary Vanda Scaravelli, author of Awakening the Spine, for 17 years and has been teaching internationally for more than 35 years. It is Vanda Scaravelli’s gift of yoga with its emphasis on breath, gravity and the spine that is at the heart of Sandra’s unique teaching style. Sandra is also the author of the classic Breath: the Essence of Yoga and Like a Flower: my years of yoga with Vanda Scaravelli.
After more than 30 years as a professional dancer and teacher of modern dance, Michal Havkin found enrichment in her yoga practice. The yoga Michal teaches is rooted in the Scaravelli tradition, connecting to the breath, gravity and space. It is a slow moving practice with constant awareness on the breath and the minute changes in the body, each and every day. Michal teaches group and individual yoga classes in Israel, and has been leading long seminars with Sandra Sabatini in Europe and India in the past few years.
Sandra and Michal are coming to Brussels now for the fourth time, and this year’s theme is yoga for season:
Autumn – season of transition – an inward journey
“Health does not make a sound, but needs a range of different forms of attention like standing, walking, breathing, relaxation and meditation, which help us to tune our inner sound with the sound of the universe. These sharpen our capacity to hear and to listen, and bring balance. “ – excerpt from the book Autumn, Winter, Spring, Summer – Yoga through the Seasons by Sandra Sabatini et al.
Autumn is the time to adopt different breathing rhythms. The weekend of practice will offer a way to welcome all the elements connected to this season and a deeper contact to our vital parts and letting the pace slow down.
