Yoga in the Style of Scaravelli
This form of externally soft, but powerful internal yoga, utilises the breath and gravity to energise the spine to unfold like a wave opening and energising the whole body.
With breath and gravity engaged the spine releases residual tension and harnesses latent energy, allowing us to co-ordinate our bodies and lives in a different way.
Raja Yoga
Yoga is a psycho/spiritual tradition, at least 10,000 years old, which allows the body, mind and spirit to be combed of all impurities.
Studying the internal nature of our being, leads to the control of the internal and external worlds. This process transcends the ego and the student realises the spirit of the Self.
Yoga Nidra
The practice of Yoga Nidra allows the student to experience a deep state of relaxation physically, mentally and emotionally. A thirty-minute practice of Yoga Nidra is equivalent to four hours sleep.
The Sessions
The classes are based on Raja/Classical Yoga ,influenced by Scaravelli and are holistic in nature , allowing students to develop their yoga practice at a deep spiritual level through asana, pranayama, Yoga Nidra and meditation.
The classes are small and friendly and encourage students to develop their own home practice. Both beginners and advanced students are welcome, as the sessions are taught from the individual not the group.

Yoga is an ancient practice that can bring life changing physical, emotional and spiritual benefits.

Whether you are a beginner; a regular looking to deepen your practice; want to improve your sports performance or technique; need help to develop a home practice or you simply need space and time for you, away from the stresses of everyday life, whatever your situation, yoga can help.

Here are just a few of the incredible benefits that the practice of yoga can offer you:

  • Release from tension, fatigue and stress
  • Deepening of self-awareness and creating space to build self-confidence
  • Improvement of core stability, flexibility and balance
  • An understanding of physical alignment and psycho physical unity
  • Connection to intuition and inner stillness
  • Wellbeing and ease in everyday life
  • Improvement in athletics and sports

When I teach I create a safe environment and a non-judgmental space to encourage self-study and growth. You can begin to release negative energy and bring an awareness to those formed habits, both emotional and physical, that hold you back in life.

With a playful practice you can move with curiosity and ease through the yoga positions. Becoming mindful of your breathing and energy throughout your practice can begin to bring you back to your true self.

I offer a dynamic yet gentle flow with a strong focus on the unity of breathing and movement, and finding true stillness. I teach all levels and primarily Hatha and Vinyasa Flow.

Having worked in very high pressured office environments, I understand the toll this can take on us and the importance of being able to come back to ourselves. Maybe you feel it is time to give yourself the space to relax, release and renew.

One to One Yoga
I offer one to one yoga at Shine Holistic in Stoke Newington, North London and also where possible travel to people’s homes. These mindful yoga sessions are tailored to your needs and will leave you feeling lighter, calmer, with a stronger understanding of how you want your life to be. And all this you discover for yourself with gentle and encouraging guidance through this age old tradition.

Pregnancy Yoga
Yoga during pregnancy can lay the foundations of mental and physical wellbeing at a time of transition and uncertainty. 

During these intimate classes or private sessions, the mothers-to-be are able to nourish and relax both themselves and their baby. It gives mothers-to-be the space to connect with their intuition and trust in what they feel is right for them.

They will find the encouragement to connect with their inner strength, balance and profound self-awareness so they can feel empowered through this time of change.  It is also a time for them to realise their innate ability to trust their instincts and understand that throughout their pregnancy and the birth they always have a choice.

Corporate Yoga
I have a deep understanding of the corporate world and the huge demands put on all those working there and from the moment I had my yoga teaching qualification I started offering my services in offices. Whether it is group classes or one to one sessions the benefits can be seen immediately with people having a calm yet productive and focused outlook towards their work. Offering practices like yoga within the workplace are a huge benefit to everyone.
