His style is dynamic and energetic, but playful with a strong emphasis on alignment and breath.
Alan strives for precise technique and movement in his class – you can be sure of clear guidance through a strong practice.
Now settled in London, she teaches dynamic classes from the Rocket and Mandala Vinyasa systems as well as Yin classes based on her understanding, as an acupuncturist, of Chinese Medicine.
Her classes are strong and playful, reminding you always to relax, breathe and go with the flow. She emphasise the use of breath to quiet the mind, observe the body and enjoy the ride!
Meditation is an important part of her sadhana and one she loves to share.
Jayne is continually evolving her practice and experiences, bringing her students along for the ride.
She trained with the BWY and YogaCampus, and has completed an advanced Rasa teacher training with Sianna Sherman, which she feel has added another layer of richness and flavour to her practice and teaching. Jayne is accredited by the BWY and Yoga Alliance (500hr), teaching in London since 2010.
Class with Leila is a celebration of embodiment: fun, deep and soulful. Come to develop a profound and awake relationship to your body, to become intimate with your own honest to goodness needs, and to practice self-care AS collective care. Students are supported to engage their inherent intelligence in the most loving and healing ways. Movements are cued in a flowing sequence and include traditional asanas and invitations to work inside the traditional asanas to find new ways to embody and experience posecraft. Her teaching reflects more than 2 decades of learning and teaching yoga, the body, and spirituality.
Leila is dedicated to dismantling systemic oppression as a spiritual practice and it shows in her offerings. She is the creator of The Practices of Leadership and Empowerment Yoga Teacher Training and The Practices of Freedom and Wellbeing Immersion, and is co-creator of the Vessel of Worth community. She leads daylong meditation retreats, spiritual pilgrimages, ritual healing events online, in the UK, and around the world.
Luis trained as an actor and singer in London and started practicing
yoga in 2007 whilst at drama school, as a way to support his body
through movement and dance training. However, is was the effect on the
mind that really drew him to the practice. Yoga has supported Luis on so
many levels that he feels a responsibility to share and it was this, which
initially inspired and continues to inspire him to teach.
He is a versatile teacher and has worked with both beginners and advanced practitioners. His training in many forms of dance, physical theatre, voice, speech and singing informs his teaching.
His soulful classes are a flowing and precise vinyasa, with challenging, yet fun sequences. Always focusing on breath and alignment, classes may include Sanskrit chanting, are supported by music and always end with deep relaxation. Luis hopes that students go beyond asana and take something from the practice off of the mat and out into the world.
