AT A GLANCE
Permissive, alternative and easy going, Sarah Gray offers you a journey of awakening the spine through yoga, restorative rest and experimental movement. The morning practice sessions last one hour and are open to all.
The benefits: Calming, grounding, boosting creativity, creating more choice and easefulness in everyday life.
The spine is our core sense of self. The story of our spine is filled with meaning and a quiet spine brings a sense of comfort and wellbeing. Through the course, we work sensitively to reduce pain and increase the flexibility of the spine and therefore the whole body. We explore both rest and activity with an attentive curiosity and responsivity to our sensibilities promoting healthy movement and alignment on and off the mat.
“You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.” - Mary Oliver
Sarah blends a number of approaches that are simple but radical in their invitation - to be in the present moment fully - bringing calm, clarity, cooling of the brain, heightening receptivity of sensation and sense-making.
Her classes hold a space and time for you to reconnect with your self so you may better connect with an other. We use meditation and breathwork, poetry, music and singing bowls, for shifting consciousness. We may share creative practice like mark making, writing and performance as well as exploring going outdoors for wellbeing benefits.
Sarah Gray is an artist + teacher offering heartful enquiries, attunement to the environment, giving freedom to explore. Sarah is a certified and insured teacher of Hatha Yoga in the spirit of Vanda Scaravelli and is training as a somatic movement educator with the School of Body-Mind Centering.
Sarah offers her care and guidance for you to expand in all directions and touch a wholesome body-mind practice in a community setting. Sarah also offers private lessons on a sliding price scale. Please enquire.
Sarah has been living and working in rural South Devon for over ten years offering progressive, community education in media, performance and spiritual arts. She began practising bodyworks and movement improvisation at Dartington College of Arts in 2005 and is now a teacher of somatics and experiential anatomy.
“I have benefited from long-lasting results of yoga and somatics. We make room to make sense in our whole body-mind as we let go of ambition and can enter new realms of experiencing the wisdom of the body and the world. “
