Vaishali teaches a range of different approaches to yoga and movement, informed by her background as a yoga teacher, somatic practitioner and movement explorer. She creates classes based on her students’ specific needs and goals. The following are the broad styles she teaches.
Within some styles, Vaishali has designed special series (shown below each style, click on the link to find out more). These are available on request, as a set of classes for individuals or small groups.
These classes apply Embodied Anatomy (from Body-Mind Centering) and Fundamental Principles of Movement (from Laban Bartenieff Movement) to improve your movement. Learn to move efficiently and with clarity to optimise the way you move, both in everday situations as well as in specific activities—dance, yoga, martial arts, calisthenics, running, swimming, sports etc. In these classes we can work with specific body areas (eg. back, hips), or with specific body systems (eg. bones, joints, organs), or a combination of both.
Special Series: Yoga for Your Organs
These classes use Embodied Anatomy (from Body-Mind Centering) and Fundamental Principles of Movement (from Laban Bartenieff Movement) to address body-mind issues. They will teach you how to use your body more effectively and naturally, in order to reduce pain, improve health and enhance vitality. Designed for those who have specific concerns, injuries, illnesses or chronic pain.
For those who want to work on mobility, tension release and tissue rehabilitation, Vaishali offers fascial work using yin yoga and myofascial release. This approach focuses on the often-neglected fascial tissues of the body to gently reintroduce more ease and flexibility, as well as to reduce strain and inflammation from bodily patterns of misalignment. Fascial work enhances body awareness and whole body connectivity, and is a very accessible tool to learn for self-application.
Special Series: Somatic Yin
For those seeking therapeutic work and stress release. Vaishali’s approach to restorative yoga blends somatics, yoga (and, on request, aromatherapy) to encourage total relaxation and rest. Restorative yoga can benefit those who feel overwhelmed by life, as well as those who feel the need to carve out a time and space for self-care and rejuvenation. On a physical level, it can help with stress, anxiety, insomnia, and burnout. It is also a wonderful bridge into the inner practices of meditation and self-inquiry.
