About The Event
Marc has been one of Tuesday McNeill's major influences on the 'Scaravelli-inspired' approach to yoga for the last decade or so, and she regularly invites him to come teach at her studio in Twickenham for her students, BWY foundation trainees and friends.
When Marc once asked Tuesday what she got from his approach, she said 'well, what I like is that it's all about relationships.' So this is the ongoing title of these rather special workshops. It is a regular group that happens around 4 times/year, to explore the direct application of principles in practice... and it is appropriate for anyone looking for depth, change or meaning behind their practice.
“This yoga shows us karma in its most immediate sense. It shows us that outcome is the result of action, and that the quality of what we are experiencing is a direct result of the quality of our actions. Yoga must become an act of deep communion between body, mind and the here and now. Body-mind must engage with this earth and this space with the degree of love and respect that we might need for our own healing. With loving touch in our actions, there is an immediate release from self-violence, and life-long complications can simply fall away. This is hard to believe because it is radical, not of this world of war and competition. But when you understand what it takes to apply yourself to this kind of loving engagement, you will fall in love with its power of transformation – it is beyond anything the ego might be hungry for. This is the solution – practice your yoga with deep love in your touch and the world will seem to change about you ”
