Scarlett Perdereau

Scarlett teaches with a focus on alignment, safety, quality of breath and awareness. Expect steady-paced sequences that explore our moving anatomy and subtle, energetic body with precision.

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 last 12 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 studies in Somatics during her MA at London Contemporary Dance School, and career in movement and dance.




Scarlett Perdereau instructs the following:
  • Focus on the core
  •  
    A workshop to really understand and build up core strength! It is aimed at empowering beginners as much as challenging the more advanced.

    From a clear understanding of what is meant by the 'core', we will use poses and sequences to identify the muscles, internal actions and subtle adjustments that build a strong, healthy core. You will learn to engage key muscles and bandhas (internal 'locks'), alignment and breathing, to see how we can stand strong but not tense, and how our torsos can move miraculously in all sorts of directions from a stable centre.

    Looking after the core of our body also promotes a healthy digestive system, which in yoga is a keystone for overall health and wellness. It cultivates the third chakra, "Manipura", which is connected to confidence and self-esteem.

  • slow flow yoga : all levels
  • A flowing practice for anyone seeking attention to detail or in need of a gentler pace whilst still moving through creative sequences of poses. It is relevant to beginners as much as advanced practitioners, and welcomes pregnant women and those recovering from injury with prior experience of yoga.

    The slower pace allows for a focus on precision, alignement and breath, letting you make the practice as thorough and challenging or as restful as you need it to be. Slow, mindful movement creates a space for the body to adapt and unwind, and for the postures to flow with stability and lightness like a moving meditation.
