About Meriel & the Yoga

Based in West Wales, Meriel shares an approach to movement and yoga associated with Vanda Scaravelli. This way of practicing cultivates presence  and vitality by attending to the quality and refinement in the movement and breath one experiences. We are able to be dynamic if needed and address functional movements in our lives whilst touching on quietness within.

Exploring movement as a way to deeply release and relax patterns of tension in the body and our whole lives we begin to experience a type of wholeness or ease of being. The multi-facted strengths uncovered by this quiet approach are radically different from stressful overextension and over-exertion. Subtlety allows ‘our best energy‘ (Diane Long) and that state of grace offers us a return to our natural vibrancy and vividness.


Meriel also facilities TCTSY privately as a body-based yoga intervention for people  who’ve experienced chronic relational trauma. TCTSY is researched & continues to evolve with Dr Bessel Van de Kolk’s team at the Trauma Centre, Justice Institute, Boston.  Meriel is committed to offering trauma-informed yoga and spaces for all.

Her teachers

Meriel works with anyone at all who is interested regardless of experience. Her approach is inspired by the teaching of Vanda Scaravelli as taught to her by Scaravelli’s long term student Diane Long and her student Christine Borg.
