Yoga Teacher:

Lisa Gibbs:

Lisa has 17 years’ experience in  teaching Yoga. She trained in Ashtanga Yoga in 2000 with a yoga teacher called Kisen.  She also studied with Linda Henderson in Blackheath a Hatha Yoga teacher mixed with Alexander Technique .. and Earnest Coats from Living Yoga .. The class is based on Ashtanga  Flow but not following the Vinyasa series,  A slower pace or even static Breath and Stretch class is also offered  to make sure all students can participate in the class

She has since been in Spain also studies a 200 hour plus many other courses featuring from Ayuveda to Pregnancy and Theraputic with Josefine Selander of Virya Yoga Sweden

She then most recently studied with the America Doug Keller who is famous for his therapeutic Approach to Yoga and his Biomechanics of the Body

Lisa brings an air of inspiration to the class and although trained in Astanga she is able to adapt the class for those who need a more gentle approach whilst still maintaining the synchronisation of breath and movement that has been her forte.

Classes are adapted to each individual so that not one person feels stuck: bringing in new adaptations through her continual study of the yoga practice.

“Classes involve a series of moving and stationary poses, combined with deep breathing. Allowing the heart to open within each person, to move through creating a form (asana) continuing to flow through our connection with breath (Prana), generating an inner peace and balance which opens our path for spiritual growth. Each individual obtains confidence to love and be loved and to shine throughout their daily lives, creating a peace and harmony not just within each of us but in everybody we come in contact with”
