The name Scaravelli yoga comes from the Italian yoga teacher Vanda Scaravelli. Scaravelli was born in 1909 and began her yoga practice in the 1940s. She was initially influenced by the Iyengar style of yoga, but she eventually developed her own unique approach.

Scaravelli yoga is a type of yoga that emphasizes breath and spinal alignment. The founder, Vanda Scaravelli, was inspired by her own teacher, B.K.S. Iyengar. Scaravelli yoga is a more gentle and introspective practice than other types of yoga, such as Ashtanga or Bikram.

The main focus is on allowing the spine to release and lengthen, rather than forcing the body into specific shapes. This release of the spine allows for a deep inhalation and exhalation of the breath, which helps to relax the mind and nervous system. Prop use is minimal in Scaravelli yoga, as students are encouraged to find stability within their own bodies.

This type of yoga can be beneficial for beginners or anyone looking for a slower-paced practice.
