I’ve taught privately in London since 2002 and some of my students have studied with me for the past 16 years. I’m qualified as a Senior Yoga Teacher with both the Yoga Alliance USA and Yoga Alliance Professionals UK.
I will tailor a yoga class for your whether you are exhausted and need a restorative class, want to refine more challenging poses, or learn a Hatha Vinyasa Flow sequence. Technique is inspired by BKS Iyengar alignment methodology. Your practice will gradually develop as the body develops strength and flexibility, the mind becomes focused and more stable, and the breath remains synchronised to the vinyasa throughout the practice.
Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is taught in the Mysore style of the late guru, Sri K Pattabhi Jois. You will learn the traditional sequence of poses in the Primary Series, the use of breath/bandhas (internal locks) / drishti (gazing points), as well as the proper breath (vinyasa) count in the series. You will benefit from my ‘adjustments’ that help to bring the body into alignment, shift the mind out of fear, release hardness and soften the body, and gently take you deeper into the posture. The transformative nature of the practice helps you move out of pain, or discomfort, and find stability and ease in each pose – and consequently in your life.
Basic pranayama and mediation techniques are also taught, as well as Restorative Yoga to help reduce stress and anxiety, and begin an inward journey with understanding of the philosophy behind yogic practice.
