vinyasa flow yoga : all levels


This class is taught by:

Jayne Miller

Jayne teaches Ashtanga and Vinyasa flow yoga with a strong focus on healthy alignment and awareness. She creates energising, yet mindful and varied classes.

Jayne trained with Yogacampus and is accredited by the British Wheel of Yoga and Yoga Alliance.
 
Introduced to yoga at college, Jayne has since then taken many styles in her own practice including Hatha flow, Iyengar, Anusaura and therapeutic yoga. She brings in elements of them all to her teaching.
 

Frankie Walker

Frankie teaches with attentive alignment and playful exploration, infused with warmth, encouragement and a deep understanding of the postures, practices and philosophy of yoga.
 
She discovered yoga while studying performance and quickly developed a self practice. She travelled, lived and worked across India for 12 years and began her teacher training at the Sivananda ashram, followed by a 200-hour teacher training in Pranayama with Prahladha Reddy.

She later trained with Usha Devi and other senior Iyenger teachers, practised Mysore-style Ashtanga, dynamic vinyasa krama with Stewart Gilchrist, and finally met John Stirk who introduced her to the work of Vanda Scaravelli and her profoundly wise approach of going with the body, not against it, of deeply listening to what underpins our need to move. She also draws from classical Osteopathy, Cranio-Sacral therapy and Feldenkrais, understanding that how we approach ourselves and engage with our body-mind has an enormous effect on the benefits we reap from our practice, both short and long term, on and off the mat.
 
Frankie continues to work and train regularly with John, practising with, and assisting Scaravelli-inspired teacher Catherine Annis and working with Restorative and Somatics teacher Aki Omori. She is continuously studying Embodied Embryology and Functional Anatomy.

Ana Dias

Ana’s teaching approach to vinyasa flow is welcoming, non dogmatic and light hearted.

 

Her classes focus on the conscious use of the breath to inform movement. Her aim is to help students build their body awareness, through intelligent alignment that considers different body structures and not one size fits all. She facilitates a safe space where you can try new things and be playful.

 

Ana is original from Portugal and came to London to study and pursue dance professionally. She met yoga while recovering from an injury and never looked back. She trained in ashtanga, rocket, mandala and yin yoga and learned mostly from teachers Jamie Clarke, Dulce Aguilar, Marcus Veda and Stewart Gilchrist.

Lila Whiting

Lila brings a playful spirit to her Jivamukti and Vinyasa Flow classes, encouraging students to find freedom and enjoyment throughout the practice even amidst the more challenging moments. Her classes focus on breath, enabling people to experience the healing effects of yoga. Expect hands-on assists to help you gain awareness of optimum alignment, increased stability and greater release.

As a dedicated practitioner of yoga for over a decade, Lila draws from a number of methods to inform her own style. She has completed a 300-hour Jivamukti yoga teacher training, the Forrest yoga teacher training, and is also a qualified Bodyworker.

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.

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.

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.

Scarlett Perdereau

Scarlett teaches with emphasis on alignment, quality of breath and mindfulness. Her approach is technical, precise and creative. Expect sequences that explore the anatomy of the body in stillness and movement, as well as the subtle, energetic layers of ourselves.

Scarlett originally joined Yogahome as a ballet and contemporary dance teacher in 2006. She started teaching yoga here in 2010 and joined Maria in the office as studio manager in 2014.

She completed the Yogacampus teacher training in 2011 with Susanne Lahusen as her main teacher. She is grateful to have learnt over the years from teachers Anna Ashby, Catherine Annis, Alaric Newcombe, Julie Martin, Alessandra Peccorella, Alan Finger, Katrina Repka, and at the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta centre in Kerala. Her approach is also informed by her studies in Somatics during an MA at London Contemporary Dance School, and career in movement and dance.


Kate Beatty

Kate's vinyasa and slow flow yoga classes are dynamic and rythmical while keeping a focus on alignment, and draw on spiritual references to encourage self exploration. Kate has an honest and friendly approach that allows students to work safely to their full potential. Prepare to work hard, delve deep and come away feeling nourished and renewed by her holistic classes.


Kate found yoga in 1999 and has been a committed yogi ever since. She has travelled extensively and studied a variety of yoga practices around the world. She trained in London with Claire Missingham and continues to study with Rod Stryker.

Kate draws inspiration from many sources, from ancient texts to spiritual teachers such as Ram Dass and Jack Kornfield, her life experiences to date, and her two young daughters.
 

Catrin Osborne

Catrin teaches dynamic yoga as well as slower, yin and 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 in Yin yoga with Norman Blair at Yogacampus. She remains constantly inspired by a wide range of teachers.

Catrin used to be an aerialist and as well as her yoga teaching 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.

Simona Schimanovich

Simona creates challenging and playful sequences for her classes, highlighting the richness and expression of vinyasa flow. She encourages students to connect with the natural flow of energy and to practise from a place of self-acceptance and compassion.

She completed her 200hrs training in 2015 and is now continuing the 500hrs Advanced training with Aditya Yoga School led by Alessandra Pecorella, a dedicated, long-term student of Shiva Rea.


Simona has studied extensively with leading international teachers Simon Park and Meghan Currie. She spent several months in India, deepening her practice at the Sivananda ashram in Kerala as well as with intense Ashtanga training in Mysore. Over the years she has also attended a variety of yoga retreats and festivals around the world.

Kimann Jones

 
Kimann teaches from a classical Hatha approach, incorporating a slow flow of traditional poses infused with functional and strength-based movement. She is experienced in teaching people of all abilities, so expect to be supported as she adapts the practice to suit everyone.


Kimann has completed the British Wheel of Yoga-accredited teacher training diploma with Triyoga, and she remains involved in the programme as a teaching assistant. She is currently completing a 100-hour certification with Bo Forbes, and about to embark on her 300-hour advanced teaching certification with Jason Crandell.


Kimann teaches in public and corporate settings, one to ones and small groups. She also draws on her clinical background as an occupational therapist to teach in charities, health and educational settings to individuals with a wide range of abilities.

 
A dynamic flowing practice of postures drawing on the ashtanga yoga tradition yet with creative sequencing so that each class is different.
