Caroline Reid Bristol Scaravelli-inspired yoga teaching

Scaravelli influenced yoga with Caroline Reid

Caroline Reid Scaravelli-inspired yoga teacher

Based in Bristol U.K., I have been practicing yoga since 1996 and teaching since 2002.

The inspiration behind my teaching is the revolutionary approach of Vanda Scaravelli, author of ‘Awakening the Spine’.

Central to this yoga is an emphasis on being kind to the body and on gently undoing tension to reveal a deep source of vitality and energy.

In Bristol, I run small group classes, individual lessons and regular workshops. Further afield, I lead weekend workshops and retreats. Currently, I am offering online classes and later this summer (2020), I hope to be teaching from my garden too.

“Caroline teaches a truly heart warming class. She has a fresh approach to teaching yoga – beautiful and gentle. Prepare to enjoy nurturing adjustment from warm wise hands. I always feel so much more myself after her classes, relaxed and softer.” Vicki

“I really look forward to Caroline’s classes. She knows her stuff and conducts her classes with a gentleness and lightness of touch which is really refreshing She never rushes and she encourages each student, wherever they are, to find the ‘yoga’ behind each posture.

On a practical note, I have been practising different forms of yoga on and off for 30 years and have never been able to sit anywhere close to a kneeling position despite a great deal of practice and effort. After 6 weeks of yoga with Caroline I noticed that my knees had been freed up and I can now happily sit in a kneeling position without a thought! Yay!” Siu-Ming
