BILL WOOD

Inspired by many different yoga ‘schools’ and meditative traditions, Bill feels drawn to seek out the essential elements of yoga that different approaches might share. The language he’s found most helpful – in his own practice and his teaching – has evolved from the work of the late Vanda Scaravelli.

Bill has studied extensively since 1996 with Diane Long, one of Scaravelli’s closest students. He also studies with Sandra Sabatini; has trained in the past with John Stirk and Sophie Hoare; and, back in the mid-1990s, qualified as a Sivananda Teacher and as a Yoga Therapist with the YBT. He also works as a psychotherapist with a private practice near Totnes.

This isn’t so much a ‘style’ of yoga as an invitation to discover for ourselves a more natural and easeful way of working with our bodies. A way of unwinding more fully and freely into yoga practices using less strain or force.

This takes us away from the external pursuit of physical shapes, and draws us instead towards finding the right internal qualities for the body to release and realign itself. This inner balance – described traditionally as being stable and comfortable – is nurtured as we cultivate strength with flexibility, vitality with relaxation, and lightness with groundedness.

Physically the patterns of tension we hold in our bodies can then start to let go, improving postural habits and breathing patterns, and helping us to feel more comfortable in our own skin.

Practicing yoga this way is then as much a form mindfulness as it is a physical exercise – a form of meditative movement, guided less by thought and more by what we’re feeling – a way of becoming more sensitive and present to our body, in all its vitality and tenderness.

"Our bodies want to relax. We just have to slow down and listen."

"This isn’t so much a ‘style’ of yoga as an invitation to discover for ourselves a more natural and easeful way of working with our bodies. A way of unwinding more fully and freely into yoga practices using less strain or force."
