Private yoga coaching

Did you know that the words 'health', 'whole' and 'holy' share the same etymological root?

Mental and emotional health are the key to unlocking our spiritual potential and nothing works better than commitment, support and intention, no matter what your physical limits.

Private yoga coaching is a beautiful way to nourish mind and body, build confidence and invite clarity and purpose into your life, all while receiving safe and supportive guidance as you deepen your practice. My approach is personal while my knowledge is supported by my experience of what works for me and my students, cutting edge neuroscience and east-west perspectives on the body. 

I take a therapeutic approach to yoga and see the human journey as one to be explored rather than a problem to be solved. I like to bring elements of coaching to our relationship so as to understand the challenges you face, hold you accountable for your personal work and hold space for whatever seeks to emerge in the moment.

I’m here to invite curiosity, discovery and learning about how the mind and body are in discussion with each other. The sensitivities of the soul and our ever-changing needs are always in dynamic interplay with the world. Sometimes we need practices that stoke the fire, make us sweat and clear away the cobwebs. At others, we need to rest, digest and turn inward as we soothe the nervous system. The body is a natural medicine cabinet and the more we practice tuning in and listening to our needs, the better able we are to discern how to treat ourselves.

My aim is to make it easy for the magic of yoga to positively impact your life and to nurture practices that grow self love and self compassion. I support my clients in finding wholeness, balance and peace, a lack of which leads to a feeling of separation and anxiety. Through private yoga coaching you’ll learn essential tools for self care and come to a greater understanding and grasp of your physical, mental and emotional life.

ABOUT YOU

I work with people who are committed to growing and investing in themselves. My clients are professionals - teachers, lawyers, financiers, therapists and creatives - with busy lives. As a yoga entrepreneur, I particularly love to support social innovators, the self-employed and purpose-driven business owners. Most of the people I work with are aged 30-50, are familiar with yoga and/or therapy and are curious about returning to their bodies and opening to larger philosophical and spiritual questions that their everyday lives don’t grant them.

My clients are often people who want to reduce stress, anxiety. depression and overwhelm while seeking ways to live more wholeheartedly. They are people who wish to create a daily practice so they can live with more ease and give more to their work and relationships. They are individuals - creative, intellectual and unique - who wish to return to the inner voice that guides them and to deepen their self enquiry with compassionate support.

I also work to support people experiencing grief and heartbreak. For more info, see here.

FAQ

HOW DO I GET STARTED?

Click the button above to arrange a consultation call so we can discuss your availability and needs. From there we can determine if we’re a good fit and take it from there.

WHAT SUPPLIES DO I NEED?

At the least you’ll need a mat but two blocks, a blanket, and a strap are a valuable bonus, both for our sessions and your future practice. If you’re not sure what or where to buy, let me know on the call and I’ll make some recommendations. You’ll also need to wear comfortable clothing suitable for movement - nothing fancy required!

I’M LOOKING FOR A TEACHER TO DO A ONE-TIME SESSION WITH. DO YOU DO THAT?

I’m afraid not. I work with clients who are interested in working with a private yoga instructor on a weekly, ongoing basis. I don’t offer single sessions at this time.

Where do classes take place?

We can either arrange classes in my private practice space or I can come to your home or workplace depending on the setup. I travel around London for my clients as part of the cost of private tuition but anything beyond Zones 1-3 and I’ll add a reasonable surcharge.

I’VE NEVER DONE YOGA BEFORE. IS THIS FOR ME?

Yes! I love working with beginners.
