the yoga — learn yoga in the tradition of Vanda Scaravelli and from the teachings of Diane Long

Teacher: Brooke Welsh
Time: 12:30-2:30 pm
Date: Sunday, September 23rd
Investment: $48 

Brooke’s workshop focuses on unlearning old habits and patterns of movement through which the spine becomes more alive. You will discover the possibility of a new relationship deep within your body. This gentle approach to yoga cultivates qualities of awareness and attention, coupled with a sense of curiosity and play in the poses. You will learn how to explore movement as a process of undoing tension, and to create space in the body inviting new movement and life in and through the spine. Unlike a traditional yoga class, this way of working focuses on a deeper discovery of how the body is capable of moving. You will experience a different strength, greater freedom and more ease in your body. The class is personalized and hands-on.

This is a wonderful workshop for everyone.  It is for those who teach yoga, have a regular practice or are new to yoga.  This way of working assists in cultivating a fresh approach to your teaching and/or personal practice.


About Brooke

Brooke began practicing yoga in 1998 and has been teaching for nearly as long. Hatha yoga quickly became a doorway leading to Brooke’s discovery of mind/body healing modalities and spiritual practices. She is inspired by the teachings of Vanda Scaravelli, and Diane Long who was Vanda’s main student for 23 years in Florence, Italy. Vanda spent over 40 years discovering and uncovering layers of aliveness and vitality in her body through the cultivation of her awareness and her willingness to be a beginner each time she came to her yoga. Diane, a dynamic and inspiring teacher, has continued the discovery and refinement of this practice for over 45 years teaching worldwide. In 2000 Brooke met Diane on one of her first visits to Philadelphia and has continually studied with her ever since. The cultivation and refinement of Brooke’s studies and practices have become as much of a journey for Brooke as her life itself. It is from this place that Brooke extends her offerings and teachings.
