Videos: Captured Moments, Practice Videos & Filmed Workshops & Retreats.

The public resources are an open Resource for anyone that visits the website. but all material is the copyright property of Marc J Acquaviva/aka Woolford (©2010 - today's date, all rights reserved - reproduction prohibited) and are for personal use only.
Public resources will include occasional snippets from workshop videos and notes, but they are for informational puposes only. If anyone engages with the postures, sequences or concepts in their practice, they must take full responsibility for their own bodies, as I won't be there to monitor the practice.

If you like the content and the work resonates with you, just come to a workshop or book a private session with myself (Marc J Acquaviva) or attend a class or one-to -one with any of the teachers that qualify from the AcquaViva School of Yoga... resonating with the ideas is the start - experiencing the work directly shows what is possible with it ...

Entire Filmed Workshops:

** Please donate as you feel is appropriate... below is only a guide.

  • Suggested donations might be :
    • £1-£5 for access to a day workshop or a particular class.
    • £5-£10 for a weekend workshop.
    • £10-£20 for access to a whole week's retreat.
  • This resource costs money to run, so really, any donation at all is truly gratefully received. But it is a RESOURCE that I want to make available to people that want the work... So if you feel to give less than suggested amount, something is very much appreciated. Or you just haven't got it, then get in touch to let me know, and I will give you the password. Thank you again.

 

Workshop you would like to access:

I have been filming everything recently, because I realised what an immense body of resource this could be for someone that really wanted to get into the depth of the yoga. It started with my teacher training courses that began a few years ago (only trainees get to see these), but now that I am paying for a full-on upload facility on Vimeo I thought I might as well make my public workshops and retreats available too.

Clicking on any of the links will get you to the page, but to be able to view the video you will also need the password.

The videos are password access only - and they are meant for workshop attendees, but those of you that are familiar with working with me may also have access to appropriate videos, at my discression.

Any donations are very gratefully received, and help go towards the cost of maintaining this resource.

To gain access, simply type, in the donation box below, which workshop you would like see, and then when you click 'donate' you can give something** via paypal, (thank you!) and I will send you the password as soon as I receive notification.

Of course If you really can't spare even a £1, simply contact me with a request, and if you attended the workshop, I will be happy to give you the password.

The password will always work for access, so once you have it, please don't share it with anyone else without my approval.

Many thanks.
Marc

'Why do I practice?'

item9

'Where I started from was extricating myself from the myriad of pains and difficulties that came with a scoliotic postural habit, but the yoga has given me so much more than mere relief from pain and functional difficulty ... I practice with the simple intent of removing the conflict in my actions... What does that achieve? 

Well, when I become less conflicted in my actions, my body creates less resistance to movement, so I gain better range and simplicity of function...but that is not WHY I practice...

 Here is the REASON I practice : I do it because in actually achieving moments of true non-conflict with the spine, there is immense direct sensation of physical PLEASURE that surges up through my spine and out through my bones and body into space... This is actually WHY I practice... I would practice this even if there was no benefits to it whatsoever and even if it made me ill to do so.

However, I also notice that after this experience, I am brighter, lighter, kinder, a little more present to the world, and this seems to agree with the idea of yoga ... and I have more energy; for life, for work, for my daughter, my garden and other things that become infused with this thing that feels like new life-force moving through me, but perhaps could just be called good health. Real Yoga is direct, it is organic not contrived, it is experienced directly not imagined, it should fully expose you in the strength of your own vulnerability, not hide you behind a veil of control.

... The older I get the more passion I find for the power and simplicity of this practice of self-non-violence in its true meaning... And the beauty of it is that it can be instantaneous - we are dealing with revealing nature, so it is perfectly possible for a beginner to have as deep an experience as a seasoned pro... in fact, these layers that need peeling off goes so deep, that there is no end to the number of times you can do it... there is no end to the number of times you can have the experience.

 .... So, whatever your previous experience, If you want to dive deep into the yoga, come and join me on one of my events or courses... because my other most favourite thing to do is to share this experience with others..'
