Hi, I'm Evy. I have been a student of the human body and its intricacies for as long as I can remember. Training professionally as a dancer brought the cliche body struggles, resulting in a broken back and what felt like a broken heart. Two spinal operations at 14 years of age, resulting in my life on and off in a back brace didn’t quite fix the chronic pain, until I finally burnt my dance career to the ground 5 years later to begin search for a deeper understanding for my suffering, beyond the limited answers that western medicine was offering me.
Since, I have devoted my life to healing the patterns to which my mental and physical struggles existed within, through the path of Yoga and various healing modalities, from which a path devoted to facilitate others to do the same evolved.
After my dance training, my journey of body exploration continued into Pilates. I joined London City Physiotherapy as a remedial movement therapist, learning much along the way of the incredible complexities and biomechanics of the western approach to the physical body, alongside the dualistic limitations of the inability to see the deeper connection of pattern from the microcosm to the macrocosm of universal reality. And thus how lifestyle, mental and physical health are intricately intertwined in ways that sparked a deeper search into other somatic modalities and eastern philosophy.
This big wake up to the limitations of western medicine in my work, coincided with a personal collapse of my perceived reality of my London lifestyle, initiating me to leave busy city life behind on a journey to India for my first Yoga teacher training in 2015. Since, I have travelled the world for 8 years, completed over 1500+ hours of Yoga teacher training and have facilitated retreats, teacher trainings and anatomy courses worldwide.
As my own inner quest for wholeness has continued on its infinite journey, with its ebbs and flows, I have learnt to trust and follow its many tributaries into different modalities including various forms of Yoga (Vinyasa Flow, Ashtanga, Traditional Hatha, Yin, Restorative), Myofascial Release, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda, Release technique, Contact Improvisation, Shamanism, Somatic education incl: Thomas Hanna Somatics, Feldenkrais, Mind-Body Centering and Franklin method and others.
I always felt there was somehow a disconnect between philosophical study and practice, either falling into dualist yogic philosophy which clunkily correlated with living in today’s reality as a western woman, or on the other hand not quite fitting into the ‘New Age’ spiritual trap which lacked clear container and integrity.
The discovery of non-dual Śaiva Tantra allowed everything to land in its place on my path, creating the container and practice from which my own spiritual path and teaching has evolved from. I am forever grateful to my teachers Hareesh Wallis and Satu Tuomela who continue to inspire my teachings, and who I am now privileged to teach alongside.
The embodied path of Tantra brings us nowhere but here. The goal is, and has always been exactly we are. It is through the vessel of the body, through its miraculous pathways of connectivity and exploration that we can awaken to the intimacy of presence.
"The human body is not an instrument to be used, but a realm of one's being to be experienced, explored, enriched and, thereby, educated. We cannot sense without acting and we cannot act without sensing."
-- Thomas Hanna

THE EMBODIED JOURNEY TO NOW
50h Movement Immersion into the eternal Now 21-26 May 2024
The Shanti Space, Portugal
*INFO COMING SOON*
Join Evy Ferraro for a 50h bridge programme into authentic movement research and direct realisation. This programme weaves the teachings of Non-dual Saiva Tantra into direct experience through the body as a vehicle for awakening. Awakening happens here, not through transcendent escapism but through the pathways of the microcosm to the macrocosm of the body, through the explorations of pathways of connection, its energetic web interlinking our inner and outer worlds. How we relate and yield through these pathways into space and gravity, and ultimately into relationship with life.
