Luis Valentine


Born and bred Londoner Luis is a 300 Hour Certified Jivamukti Teacher and also a classically trainer actor, singer and dancer holding a degree in acting and a masters in musical theatre. It was in 2007, whilst at drama school that Luis first found yoga asana practice, as a way to support his movement and dance training. He discovered the Jivamukti method in 2011 through a dear friend and has focused on this method ever since. Luis felt like he had discovered a wonderful secret; he felt so aligned with the practise and everything about it resonated deeply with him and he felt a strong sense of ‘coming home’.

The yoga practices have transformed Luis on so many levels that he feels a strong sense of responsibility to share and it was this, which initially inspired and continues to inspire him to teach. His classes are classic Jivamukti, with a focus on breath and correct alignment and include sanskrit chanting, hands on assists and challenging but fun sequences all set to an eclectic soundtrack and always ending with deep relaxation... Luis hopes that his students go beyond… and take something from the practice out with them into the larger yoga studio of the world.

Luis would like to express his deep gratitude to Sharon Gannon, David Life, Petros Haffenrichter, Jules Febre, Moritz Ulrich for their training and inspiration to his teacher Emma Henry for her continued teaching, support and mentorship.
