This website brings together a national database of like-minded teachers who have been influenced by the work of the late Vanda Scaravelli. Vanda was originally a student of highly esteemed yoga teachers B.K.S Iyengar and T.K.V Desikachar. After learning from these teachers over a period of years, Vanda went on to develop her own ideas regarding Hatha Yoga.

Independent YogaThese ideas are outlined in her book Awakening the Spine. Central to her teaching are the relationships between gravity, breath, and movement, and how these relationships affect the curves of the spine.

Whilst the teachers listed in the Teacher Search facility of this website all have their own style and individual approaches, they all respect Vanda Scaravelli’s key ideas and interpret them through their own teaching.

It is this common thread that links all the teachers listed on independentyoga.co.uk.
