Christine Borg

Exploring the Teachings of Diane Long and Vanda Scaravelli

July 2020

Based in Edinburgh, Scotland, Christine explores an approach to yoga that was pioneered by Vanda Scaravelli and was taught to her by Diane Long. In this way of working, the intention is directed toward the quality and refinement of the movement that one experiences.

The emphasis is not on the pose. This practice involves a deepening release and relaxation through the undoing of tension, not through stress and overextension of the body. Christine demonstrates and works hands on to guide students to experience the subtle quality of movement, breath and attention that is integral to this approach.

About Christine Borg

Christine Borg was born in Malta and later immigrated to the United States. She was first inspired to pursue this style of yoga after reading Vanda’s book “Awakening the Spine.” At 33, Christine took her first yoga class with Diane Long in Oakland, CA in 2000. She has attended Diane’s workshops all over the world.
