Event description

Description

Louise Simmons has been teaching yoga and hands-on bodywork since 1991 and exploring the Scaravelli approach to yoga since the mid-nineties, working with her mentor, Diane Long who was a principle student of Vanda Scaravelli for over 20 years. She works with a wide variety of individuals and groups of all ages, experience and abilities, in classes, workshops, and yoga retreats throughout the United Kingdom, Europe and the United States.

We are excited to host Louise on her first visit to Australia and look forward to learning more about this gentle approach to yoga. Louise will be running a two-day workshop in Berry (2 hours south of Sydney) over the weekend of Saturday, April 7th and Sunday, April 8th. The yoga workshop will run from 10 am to 1 pm with a two-hour break and then recommence from 3 pm to 5 pm.

Louise invites you to share yoga practice with her – refreshing your awareness, moment to moment, bringing clarity to the spine so that it can reclaim its connection to the ground and expand into space. Just like a tree needs fertile soil and strong roots to grow, the spine needs the right conditions and a clear sense of gravity to extend itself naturally and free itself. By developing a rhythmic sense of play with gravity inside the postures, we can stimulate a greater awareness of feeling and ultimately stand more fully in who we are.

This approach values exploration and emphasises the integrity of the exploration process rather than the definition of fixed poses. All you need to bring is your curiosity and your compassion. These provide the alternative to ambition, which tends to aim for pre-determined outcomes. The body has its own way of freeing itself when we are willing to listen.

We look forward to sharing this unique opportunity to study with Louise Simmons.

There is also a well-written article about Vanda Scravelli and this type of yoga in Yoga International.

FAQs

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Berry is a quaint and beautiful country town that is easily accessible by train and by car. Last year the Illawarra Regional Airport (Wollongong) began offering flights to Melbourne and other cities. The airport is located in Albion Park which is a 30-minute train ride to Berry, NSW. Flights are more frequent in and out of Sydney, but the distance to Berry is just a bit further but the flight service may be more regular.

The yoga workshop is located in Wesley Hall, the original 1884 Wesleyan Church, which has been relocated and refurbished, and now sits on the grounds of The Berry Uniting Church, which is located at 77 Albert Street in Berry. As you can see on the map, it is a short walk from the station to Wesley Hall and for those who will be coming by car, there is plenty of free parking in the church parking lot and on the street. Please refer to the links below for directions to Berry and a map of the town.
