vinyasa flow yoga : all levels


This class is taught by:

Aleksei Zukov

Aleksei is a Jivamukti yoga teacher with a background in martial arts and acrobatics, and so his vinyasa flow classes offer a strong, sustained practice with some interesting poses thrown in. Expect motivating instructions and hands-on adjustments, as well as pranayama and chanting.
 

Aleksei believes that yoga is not only a physical practice but a spiritual one where the practitioner dives deep in the study of the Self and learns to attain a higher level of consciousness.

Rachel Middleton


Rachel is an experienced teacher whose accessible, technique-orientated vinyasa flow classes are informed by a background in yoga therapy and her ongoing studies in anatomical science. Students appreciate Rachel’s attention to detail in the postures, as well as her distinctive musical playlists.


Rachel holds an advanced certification in Jivamukti Yoga alongside multiple other teaching qualifications, including pre and post-natal specialisations.


Isabell Britsch

Isabell's vinyasa flow classes offer imaginative, sometimes challenging and always fun sequences, balancing the energy of dynamic movement with the stillness of a moving meditation. Her teaching is warm and welcoming and often includes yoga philosophy and pranayama.

In addition to her long standing personal meditation practice, Isabell regularly attends silent Vipassana retreats and this mindfulness practice informs her meditation and pranayama classes.

 

Isabell trained with Yogacampus and holds British Wheel of Yoga and Yoga Alliance accreditation. She studies with some of the world's leading yoga teachers including Richard Freeman, Shiva Rea and Rod Stryker and has trained in yin yoga with Sarah Powers.

Catrin Osborne

Catrin teaches dynamic and slow flow classes, as well as restorative yoga and yoga nidra. Her classes always pay attention to alignment and offer a deep, guided relaxation at the end.

Catrin trained with Yoga Haven on their 200 hour Yoga Alliance programme which she loved for its non-dogmatic approach and careful attention to both the physical and the philosophical practice of yoga. She trained with Roger Cole in Restorative Yoga and completed her Yoga Nidra teacher training with Uma Dinsmore-Tuli and Nirlipta Tuli. She also trained in Yoga Adjustments with Nova Milesko and remains constantly inspired by a wide range of teachers.

Catrin used to be an aerialist and as well as her teaching also runs a theatre circus company called Osborne & What. She teaches yoga for actors at Fourth Monkey and RADA, and has set up www.stokeyyoga.co.uk.

Lila (Lizy) Whiting

Vinyasa flow and Jivamukti yoga teacher Lila combines playful discipline with intelligent sequencing that builds strength and awareness, encouraging her students to defy their own expectations. Expect strong core work and dynamic play.

Since her first experience on the mat at 21, Lila has found herself transformed from desk-bound lawyer to globe-exploring yogini. Whether studying Iyengar in Rishikesh, practising Ashtanga at dawn or completing her 300 hour Jivamukti TTC, she draws upon a number of methods to inform her own style, best summarised as energised and technical play.

Mischa Varmuza

Mischa teaches a combination of strong steady flow and longer holds to both uplift and connect to stillness. Expect each class to challenge as well as restore you, with focus on breath and alignment, self inquiry, and unfolding.

Mischa's yoga journey began over a decade ago. She is a 500 hour certified teacher having most recently completed a 300 hour advanced training with Sianna Sherman who she has now stepped into apprenticeship with and assists around the world. Mischa completed her 200hrs teacher training with leading Vinyasa Flow teacher Claire Missingham and studied Iyengar yoga intensively both in India and in London. She carries on exploring a number of styles and philosophies from which she draws inspiration for her classes.

Shira Hess

Shira's vinyasa flow classes offer carefully designed, progressively complex sequences, inspired by yogic philosohpy. Expect to sweat and work hard. Nourishing hands-on assists will help you access deeper forms of each pose and are a vital part of her classes, along with pranayama (breath exercises) and mantras.

Shira trained with Claire Missingham and her teaching remains deeply rooted in her powerful approach to vinyasa flow.

What guides Shira as a teacher and as an eternal, humble student is the deep belief that yoga is a tool and catalyst for growth.
 
A dynamic flowing practice of postures drawing on the ashtanga yoga tradition yet with creative sequencing so that each class is different.

Deep stretching for strength and flexibility leaves you energized yet relaxed.
