There was a yoga teacher by the name of Vanda Scaravelli, who wrote "Awakening the Spine." She used an intuitive approach to adjusting. She had studied with BKS Iyengar and TKV Desikachar. She had her own intuitive approach to teaching yoga through out her life. The intuitive yoga of Vanda Scaravelli is a progressive physical practice with the intention of leading one to the vital core, the spine, and is based on the theory that the spine divides at the 4th and 5th lumbar vertebrae. The base of the asana is where one is rested and anchored into the earth. Refining student awareness opens one's vision to harmony, when guided by this intention. This then becomes a way of living, that permits one to experience a new approach to yoga posturing.

Yoga Intuition and Transformative Wisdom

People might not be aware of it, but there is a lot of wisdom in yoga. Much of the wisdom that can be found in yogic practices is due to the principles that are naturally taught. The great thing about wisdom is that it will transform you for the better - From your perspective, all the way to your level of joy and actions.

Wisdom is developed through the process of learning, intuition, and asana practice will teach you principles that can be found throughout yogic methods. The great thing about these principles is that they do not only have application to yoga training, but they can also be applied to other areas of a person's life. For example, one of the important things that you will learn is to push the boundaries but to honor your limits. You will learn how far to push yourself with yogic practice. The great thing about it is that the stretching can feel really good.

Where else can transformative wisdom be found in yoga?

Aside from the actual yogic practices, another place where transformative wisdom can be found is in the yoga texts. People can learn a lot about yogic practice and about life just by studying these texts. It can be a transformative experience that can improve their practice.

Yogic practices teach you to relax.

The great thing about these practices is that they teach you the wisdom on how to relax and calm your mind. The great thing about learning this with that activity is that it will not just be used there, but also with other areas of a person's life. A person might learn how to be more relaxed around difficult people, and as a result, they do not get sucked into an argument with them. That is the wisdom of yogic practice at work.

What is wisdom?

Wisdom is handling the problems in your life with good solutions. It is the level of clarity a person has on life, and the great thing about yogic practices is that they can teach people certain methods to develop more clarity in their life.

If you would like more wisdom, then it is important to constantly be learning from whatever sources you can. Wisdom will transform every aspect of your life for the better because you will see the solutions to your problems more easily. Practicing yogic methodology teaches a person about wisdom in handling their life. To be flexible and happy no matter what happens in life.
