Lyde Green Community Centre, Thistle Close, Bristol, UK
I have been studying and attending my own yoga classes for years and I have just recently started teaching since I graduated with my 200 hour Yoga and Spiritual development teacher training in the study of classical Yoga Philosophy and traditional Hatha Yoga Practice certification this year 2019.
I trained in Bristol and Italy with the Shanti Centre Training School taught by my main teacher Stephanie Shanti Bosanko. My training and experience is from an in depth study of traditional Sivananda yoga which is a more slower -paced style, really focusing on meditation, breathwork and spirituality. The style is based on the five branches of yoga philosophy ; Proper breath, proper relaxation/ meditation, proper diet, positive thinking and proper exercise.
My training and experience also incorporates Kundalini, restorative, integral and Vinyasa yoga. I am currently also working towards my Yin Yoga Teacher Certificate. I love all that yoga has to offer us. Particularly the Yoga Philosophy and Spirituality elements that really are a key fundamental part of learning true yoga. I love to theme and weave the philosophy and teachings into my sessions, making it accessible yoga, using blocks, straps and props to enhance your experience in the moment.
I teach with a very humanist, open, warming and emphatic approach, allowing my intuition to guide me and read my students and their needs throughout the classes. My knowledge, experience and wisdom flows into my sessions and I like my students to allow themselves to self explore what feels right for them in the present moment, not forcing, not pushing but tuning in and listening to your body, this is a really important part of my teaching approach and that students can feel comfortable and at ease and able to be themselves.
My message of yoga is of union, connection and sharing the importance of self care. It is important that we take time to nourish our mind and body with mindfulness and conscious awareness and if there is any aim, its aim of alignment with living your best self.
Throughout my sessions we will explore yoga on and off the mat and what that means to you. My classes are a path of self discovery, self realization, journeying through you to find your inner purpose and true self, to bring mind and body balance.
Yoga gives the gift of a calm mind and peace, even in the midst of chaos, by teaching you to let go and bring awareness to every moment.
Mind-body integration means establishing a healthy dialogue between your thoughts and your cells. Yoga is a powerful practice that enhances your mind-body integration. Through conscious breathing, movement, and attention to the physical postures, you cultivate a state of body-centred restful awareness, bringing harmony to the physical, mental and emotional body.
