What is Yoga?
The word yoga translated means to unite or to bring together. It brings us to become more aware and unite our mind, body and spirit. This is achieved through attention to the breath, moving the body in a variety of poses and practising mindfulness and meditation. In layman’s terms, time for you! All of which may sound a bit daunting but can easily be experienced and undertaken in one of Alix’s yoga classes
The yoga at The Wheel of life in Malvern can be practised as part of one of the many yoga classes or an individual session personalized to suit the individual.
What style of Yoga is it?
The style of yoga is inspired by Vanda Scaravelli (author of Awakening the spine)
Vanda came to yoga at the age of 40 after the sudden death of her husband. She was fortunate to meet Mr Iyengar, who gave Vanda private lessons daily. Vanda was amazed how the yoga and the instruction opened her body and her mind and she felt huge benefits from the practice. She then began to develop her own insights and began to share her findings with others. She took on a few individuals over the years and taught them everything she could, including Sandra Sabatini. Sandra spoke of the personal tuition “ I was so eager to please her, so nervous, so out of touch with myself that I was unable to respond to her teaching.
What she was offering was so beautiful that I did not know how to accept it. She invited me to open up-like a flower-from the centre. Flowers, plants and animals never hurry and grow into the most wonderful variety of forms. What I learned was that the breath is the key that can open thousands of doors. The body is allowed to find the alignment between the earth and sky, the practice becomes a richly rewarding voyage inwards where gifts are always offered with great generosity.” (S.Sabatini. “breath the essence of Yoga” )

Meridian yoga, meditation and relaxation with Alexandra Jones
The yoga that I practice is inspired by Vanda Scaravelli. This form of yoga focuses on the breath, and awakening the spine through a series of positions and movements. In addition to this its other primary focuses are developing our relationship to the ground so you can become fully present in your body and in turn develop and balance physical and mental health. Meditation and breathwork are weaved throughout these practices.
Yoga means to unite in Sanskrit, thus all sides of our being are positively influenced to rebalance and restore.
The benefits of yoga are well established: • improves mood • assists better sleep • establishes new neural pathways · develops lung capacity · fosters self awareness . improves posture and balance • balances blood pressure • inspires creativity • frees muscles • reduces pain
Many studies have proved a direct decreasing of the stress hormone cortisol, even after one session, hence yoga supports those experiencing depression and anxiety.
