When I met Vanda, I had been practicing yoga for many years in Florence, Italy.
Encountering her and being accepted as a private student, slowly led me into a completely new, revolutionary and intense world of Yoga.
Pushing and straining were banished.
My body was invited to use the force of gravity to free the spine.
This was combined with the discovery of breath which, when listened to, revealed a new kind of wave-like movement and unveiled the body’s ability to teach.
I was an ignorant pioneer, attempting to follow Vanda, a trail blazer, who had discovered and charted unexplored territory.
This involved a long transitional period, a process of “undoing” as Vanda would say.
