FRYOG South Area CPD Training Day ‘Freeing the Spine’ with Bill Wood
Sunday, 24th September 2023.
10am – 4pm.
at the Virginia Water Community Centre 35 Cabrera Avenue Virginia Water GU25 4EY.
Healthy posture is never ‘held,’ but is more a loose and animated way of inhabiting the body, with a continuously moving spine at its core. This day of yoga will experientially explore this theme, practising different ways of being more gentle and mindful and creative in our practice, so our deep holding patterns can start to release, and our natural spinal movements can start to re-emerge. The yoga sessions will be asana based, with periods of relaxation and sitting practice woven in.
Author of “A Journey into Being: Practising Yoga from Within,” and a teacher since 1994, Bill runs online and in person classes from his base in south Devon, and teaches workshops and retreats all round the UK. While inspired by many different yoga and meditation traditions, his main influence has been the teachings of the late Vanda Scaravelli, and he continues to study with Sandra Sabatini, one of her longest standing students. Away from his mat he also mentors students in the world of outdoor education and nature connection; worked previously as a psychotherapist for 10 years; and can often be found paddling a canoe somewhere between Dartmoor and the sea.
