About

Yogavita AboutI went to my first yoga class when I was pregnant because I had heard that ‘yoga is good for you’. As I went to my local sports centre and enrolled in their yoga class (only one at the time!), I quickly discovered: Yoga did me good! This was 20+ years ago, and I still enjoy attending yoga classes regularly, often practicing alongside my students in one of the centres I am teaching at.

With a previous career as a stress counsellor, my special interest lies in yoga for stress management. I also had a ten-year career in PR, and maybe because of this I particularly enjoy taking the benefits of yoga and mindfulness into the corporate world by providing talks and workshops for companies and other organisations.

I am enthusiastic about the benefits of yoga for all ages, and have taught people aged 15 – 91. I aim to provide varied classes, which are fun and help my students stay healthy and feel well. I currently teach Hatha Yoga, Yin Yoga and Pregnancy Yoga. Mental relaxation and movement with the breath is as important to me as the practice of postures. I place great emphasis on good alignment and safe practice and love it when there are smiles in the room.

I have been inspired by a range of yoga teachers, foremost by B.K.S. Iyengar and T.K.V. Desikachar. My particular gratitude extends to Toni Weller and Conrad Paul, and the many wonderful yoga teachers and yoga practioners I have met throughout the years.
