Yoga with Sandra

Moving to Health & Stillness

I am a yoga teacher in Islington, North London. I teach general yoga classes, pregnancy and postnatal  yoga classes at my studio in Tufnell Park. I pay close attention to alignment, the uniqueness of the person I teach and I focus on integrating the body and the mind through the breath. Yoga afterall is a form of awareness.

 

My yoga journey started when I used yoga as a healing practice to recover from an illness (Rheumatoid Arthritis) after the birth of my son. Yoga has helped me regain and maintain my mobility, strength and joint stability. I believe in its therapeutic potential and for bringing wholeness  and balance in mind and body. This belief is the inspiration that guides my teaching.

 

I am also passionate on how yoga can benefit all women at all stages of their lives. I offer pregnancy yoga classes and I will also offer postnatal yoga and yoga for menopause. Through my involvement at a mental health charity and at a home for seniors, I continue my work in yoga therapy.

 

I trained as a teacher with Yogacampus at the Life Centre, Islington (2011) and I am accredited by Yoga Alliance (Chartered Level 1, 200+ teaching hours). I am certified to teach Restorative Yoga by Judith Lasaster.

 

I am a trained doula with Paramana Doulas by Dr. Michel Odent & Liliana Lammers who  are pioneers of the doula movement and homebirth in the UK. I am currently completing a Shiatsu for Midwives course with Suzanne Yates.
