COMMUNITY ~ CONNECTION ~ COLLABORATION
ABOUT GATHER & GROW
Gather & Grow is a community for Yoga teachers to connect, share, collaborate and thrive alongside one another.
Open to teachers of all levels of experience, Gather & Grow was born from an intention to foster deeper offline connection amongst teachers.
From informal gatherings and themed meetups, to small group workshops with senior teachers, Gather & Grow nurtures skill, peer-to-peer connection and a feeling of being in something together.

Creative Vinyasa Flow: A Fascia Friendly Approach
with Caroline Tautz
Thursday 29th March, 2.30-5.30pm
Yotopia, Covent Garden
Senior teacher Caroline Tautz will be sharing her knowledge of fascia and the anatomy trains approach in the context of teaching creative vinyasa flow. The workshop will touch on how to connect sequences and incorporate a logical progression of opening the whole body, how to structure a class by starting from the ground, the benefits of mixing things up; including both variety and repetition, how to play with shapes and bring in your own creativity as a teacher and the importance of pace and flow; finding a balance of slow deep and quick efficient.
Caroline’s last workshop for teachers ‘A Teacher’s Guide to Artful Assisting’ sold out several weeks before the workshop took place. Here’s what an attendee had to say about the session:
“Caroline taught the assists workshop with a humble and calm approach. The three-hour class was full of insightful ways that teachers can assist with sensitivity and intelligence, passing on her wealth of expert knowledge in this area. I'd highly advise any wellness teacher to attend one of Caroline's sessions as I learned so much in such a short space of time. I can already see a difference in the way I approach assists with my students, and I'll take on this invaluable knowledge into all my future classes.” (Lara, November 2017)
Caroline Tautz is a yoga teacher and body worker with over 20 years of teaching experience. Originally a student of John Scott and in India, Sri K Pattabhi Jois, Caroline first came to the practice with a background in dance and Fine Art.
Training in diverse techniques over the years, her teaching and approach is inter-disciplinary, integrating Feldenkrais and somatic movement with playful, creative flowing sequences, to open the body and bring in awareness of sensation. Caroline is also a meditation teacher (through Swami Saradananda), and weaves the language of mindfulness into the physical experience.
Caroline has studied in Finland at 'conscious living' ashtanga centre with Stefan Engstrom and attributes a big paradigm shift in her teaching approach to his work on 'anatomy of wholeness', which focuses on finding freedom and effortlessness in asana by understanding the gravity line in every pose.
