Practice

There is a particular quality of attention we are aiming to bring to the body and that is when the practice really begins, when our interest is drawn towards the subtle interior movements and connections.

We’re not trying to get the body to conform to an external model of what we think yoga is or what an asana should look like. We are more interested in finding space and freedom – the asana comes from that.

This approach is subtle, yet profound. It cannot be reduced to a system or method. It demands that the practitioner develops an interest and attentiveness in their own body. For me there is real creativity in that.

The freedom, the ease and the sense of becoming more comfortable gradually make their way into deeper places inside. It is a process that is sustainable as we age…it can only get richer and deeper with practice and time.

Exploring and feeling internal connections invite the whole body to take part in the movements we’re making. The more integrated the movement, the less effort there is. From this point we can start to feel the connectedness of everything in life, not just within our own body.

“When we try to pick out anything by itself we find that it is bound fast by a thousand invisible cords that cannot be broken, to everything else in the Universe.” John Muir

“Caroline has a way of working that simply and clearly brings the body back into wholeness and in that process of integration aches and pains can disappear or lessen and there is a feeling of utter joy that comes through” Dominique
