‘The way we live is destructive to the body, there is no respect towards its needs and demands. We destroy, little by little, that precious, complex, vital, vessel of life we received at birth, why? For ambition? For a final cause? For the sake of our children, or of our family, for the “superior” mind, the “higher” self, the glorification of the brain, enlightenment, etc?’ – Vanda Scaravelli
We should not take our bodies for granted. Instead we should treat them with respect; our bodies are truly wonderful and retain the capacity to be brought back to beauty and integrity at any stage in our lives.
Words from my students
I am 52 years old and for several months I was experiencing debilitating
lower-back pain. I was managing it with pain killers but the pills were
by no means satisfactory and I began to think I would never again have
the mobility I once enjoyed.
I was taken to Johanna’s class by a friend of mine and was skeptical
about the outcome. I was wrong.
After the very first class my mobility had improved to the point where I
did not require painkillers for a couple of days. I realized that there
was a correlation between the Yoga and my back pain so I began doing
daily Yoga at home based on what I was learning with Johanna.
Johanna is incredibly supportive and responsive to everyone’s needs. I
cannot say that had I encountered Yoga with anyone but Johanna I would
be where I am today. Somehow I doubt it and in more than just the
metaphorical sense I can claim that Johanna really did save my life.
“This has all opened such a new world for me and there is so much to learn. It seems sometimes to be one step forward and two (or four!) steps back. But I feel strongly that I am on the right path. I do so appreciate your wisdom and guidance!”
