Workshops & Retreats

Here is where I post a list of various up and coming workshops & retreats ...


Generally these days, most open workshops/retreats are organised by others ... its a good way to work with me for free. So if you would like to invite me to come and teach in your neck of the woods, feel free to contact me

All open workshops are suitable for all body workers, yoga enthusiasts and teachers, looking for more experiential depth and direct understanding of some of the principles behind liberating the authentic body, and the 'Scaravelli inspired' approach to yoga.
Acquaviva yoga, created by Marc Woolford and inspired by Vanda Scaravelli, is a deeply enriching process for anyone interested in exploring the unity of mind & body and it's potential for an ever expanding quality of life...

Workshops will benefit anyone with a reasonably flexible mind, and of course they are invaluable to those that may be interested in the AcquaViva Yoga foundation or yoga development & teacher training programs (based both in Stirling, Scotland & Brighton, East Sussex). Any of these workshops count towards the 'introductory workshop' requirement of attendance on an AcquaViva course...


NB. The date for the next intake of the AcquaViva Yoga and Teacher Development Courses, both in Brighton and Stirling, is May 2016.

To reserve your place, apply now.

Friday 13th May 2016: ~ Denny, Stirlingshire: A yoga day for women

A women's health yoga day with Abigail Peck
A special day of Yoga with Marc's long-term student and co-founder of the AcquaViva School of Yoga.

(for body workers and teachers, or those familiar with the Acquaviva approach)

A rare opportunity to work directly with Abigail, applying the yoga specifically to any aspect of women's health that the group is interested in.

Abigail draws from her vast experience; as a doula, from her training with pre- and post-natal yoga as well as peri-menopausal yoga.
Working with Marc she discovered that the Acquaviva approach could be used directly to redress a long-term endometriosis issue of her own. And that applying it to all other aspects of her experience has unified her knowledge into a unique understanding, and a deeply effective approach to all aspects of women's health.

Fri 13th May 2016
10:00am-4:00pm
£40

Denny (Venue TBC)

Wednesday 8th June 2016: Hamblin Hall ~ Open workshop for all

The Art of Making Space:
"Most bodily complications are sourced in our habitual reactions to life... When there is a moment of outward push or an inward retraction in defence from the world around us, the body and breathing engage with this imbalance. When this relationship becomes habitual, this conflict becomes our normal modus operandi.
Changing our relationship to the space we occupy is a profound thing to do
".... Suitable for all.

Cost £55 earlybird
£60 drop in (space permitting)

10:30am-4:30pm

Saturday/Sunday 9th/10th July 2016: Glasgow/Edinburgh ~ AcquaViva Workshops

'Creating the Conditions':
Marc has developed a specific sequence of principle-based approaches to Yoga practice designed to reveal the natural unification of all yoga practices. He calls this approach 'creating the conditions©', and the 'conditions' that he refers to, forms the basic modular structure of the AcquaViva Yoga and Teacher Development Courses.
Any workshop or retreat with Marc will give you a direct experience of the benefits of this approach whatever your previous experience ~ This weekend will be no exception, but will also be of specific interest to those of you that are interested in some of the depth and precision involved in 'Scaravelli inspired' yoga - essentially the course content.
If you teach already, you can consider this post-graduate content, if you don't, it just makes sense to the body.
For dedicated practitioners, teachers and enthusiastic mind-body explorers.
