Yoga Event



















Helen will be visiting Cardiff for the second time and will be hosted by fellow
yoga teacher and massage bodyworker Natasha Marchant.


There are 2 events on offer.


Ecstatic Dance evening and a Yoga workshop in the spirit of Vanda Scaravelli.

Ecstatic Dance is a led journey into the body through spontaneous bare foot dance and soul full music. Its fun and suitable for anybody who has a feel for adventure. This event is alcohol free. Please bring comfortable clothes to move freely in and plenty of water.


Yoga Workshop - Feeling the wave of the spine.
The revolution in this approach to Hatha yoga in the spirit of Vanda Scaravelli is that there are no methods to this teaching. Like Love itself, Yoga has a texture. When we can enjoy the postures as frameworks to become friends with our body, then there is space for spontaneous and loving movement to emerge. Magically the body can respond naturally in the form or waves or spirals. This can be relaxing on a deep level for the whole body. You will be invited to dive into the possible tension unfolding with the idea of softening rather than fighting it!
We will be exploring how yoga is a friend to our everyday awareness of posture and movement.
Everyone is welcome.




Helen teaches seminars, teacher trainings and massage courses in India, Europe, USA and Scandinavia. Her passion is sharing this style of yoga that has brought many gifts and learnings to her life.
