About this course

 Acquaviva Yoga - the Second wave, daytime sessions

This is the second of my online courses  taking us into an exploration of specific relationships between parts of ourselves  and  the space we occupy. 

There were two courses running concurrently on this theme, and although the themes of each are based on the same principles, the delivery and specific content was geared to each participating group, so each of these courses shine a light on the same subject  from a  different angle, often working with different relationships of the body.    


As always, these recordings of my live online  6-week courses are designed to give you a complete guided tour of the body, bringing awareness to key relationships through action and breath, using simple functional postures and movements as the framework.

Week by week you be guided in specific practices that bring you directly in touch with the body's innate intelligence.  The course acts as structured support for the process that this initiates. 

I offer new ways of understanding movement and support, that will greatly enhance your practice, whether you are a complete beginner or experienced Yoga practitioner from any style of practice.

Sessions are around 90minutes each.  When you sign up you will be given access to the first session, then the remaining sessions will arrive on your dashboard on a weekly basis.  Once you have access to a recorded session, you have access for life.

   45-60 minutes of each session, I  guide you through  specific practices and relationships based on the theme for the week.

Either at the beginning or end of  the session I invite Q & A with the live participants, and I offer ideas and practical yoga solutions to whatever is going on for them.   People that go through the recorded version of this course have said that this part is just as relevant to their in-the-moment practice as if they were there live.  

With the recordings, you also have the advantage of being able to pause, rewind and redo parts that catch your attention. 

To make the most of this course, my advice would be to practice a little bit daily.  10 or 15 minutes will do, although if you are enjoying it, and have the time to do more I have found that there is no actual limit to how long I could practice if I wanted to.  If you start with something that caught your interest on the session, the body will begin to remind you of other things..  It could be a principle,  a direction of attention, or some relationship that I invite you to explore.   If this kind of awareness finds its way into your daily life, then you will have begun the process of embodied living. It is quite a natural outcome of the practice, but only if you invite it.  It is this that changes people's lives - there is an empowerment that comes with listening directly to the body's own intelligence.  It gives us accurate clues about how we truly feel about things,  and its voice can act as the wisest of guides through life.     It is this particular realisation and experience that my students find to be one of most profound benefits of practice.

Frequently Asked Questions

What sort of experience do I need to join this course?

This work is appropriate for everyone from total beginner with a curiosity about the body-mind relationship, through to fully experienced teachers looking for new depth, new inspiration and real solutions to the common issues encountered in yoga. The baseline requirement is a willingness to explore new ways of looking at things, together with a desire for change.

For how long can I access the videos?

You have access to this for life.

Each course promises to change my relationships to body and mind... How do these courses differ from each other?

That's a big questions. Before you experience it , the best answer I can give is this: The principles behind my work involve working out how to create the conditions that will allow ANY body to find deeper integration. I have discovered and have been working with 6 fundamental conditions, each of which offers its own path to freedom with practice and time, and each could be considered a 'type' of yoga. But when practiced in conjunction and in natural sequence, effectiveness of practice is off-the-scale, and transformation is inevitable. Each Course takes your through the entirety of these Conditions in sequence, but each individual Course, in sequence, centres around one of the fundamental principles. Also, I am responding in the moment to the live participants, so specific content will be guided by specific groups. Basically, principle-based content is infinitely expandable despite being based on simple principles (in the same way that you can look at the same thing from an infinite number of angles)... I hope that answer wasn't too confusing! You will understand how it works and evolves, as soon as you have experienced one course.

Marc J Acquaviva

Yoga saved my soul.... I began practicing yoga in the 'Scaravelli-inspired' style at the age of 30 in 1991, and I used it to find my way out of a great deal of chronic physical pain. In the process I discovered my own ways of looking at the body that later allowed me to help others become free of various diagnosable physical issues, and I have been sharing this with people since 1999. Its effectiveness has led me to define my own style (and School) of Yoga: running courses, workshops, retreats and teacher trainings. My mission is to spread this work as far as I can, and with the advancement of online technology, this is becoming more possible. At 57 I feel like I am at the beginning of my life! and I want to share this possibility with the rest of the world.
