About Minimum Yoga

fish-1_edited.jpg

Practising since 2005, teaching since 2014

I created Minimum Yoga in 2014 to provide an informed service of yoga and meditation classes focused on the power of consistency in practice over a lifetime. In 2019 I added Thai massage to my skillset. I like to teach practitioners of any age, shape, and background, providing a safe space for everyone to stay curious about their bodies and hopefully discover more about themselves. 

I have been resident teacher in many yoga studios and gyms in London including Yogaloom, Fitness First, Yogahome, Virgin Active, Yoganest, and more. Every year I teach a regular retreat on the island of Corfu, Greece. When not on the mat, among other things, I mentor university graduates, promote neuroscience research papers, and continue studying and training in the contemplative arts.

The power of the minimal: change through practice

Practice is central to Minimum Yoga. As a physical practice, yoga builds a healthier and stronger body, it increases our strength and flexibility, stimulates the circulatory and immune systems and opens up knots and areas of tension. At the same time, and without fail, it steadies our minds, enhances our focus, and pacifies our emotional states providing us with insights to enlighten our everyday life.
