Lisa- Yoga Fusion
I “feel deeply in love” with yoga at the very beginning of my spiritual journey, over 25 years ago, during this time I was also studying Buddhism at the London Buddhist Society. Since then my journey has taken me all over the UK and various beautiful places in the world. I have had the privilege of meeting and learning from the most amazing teachers in many different forms of yoga and Buddhist practice.
Along the way I qualified in a range of Holistic Therapies and through my Yoga and Buddhist studies I gained a deep understanding of meditation and its incredible benefits.
My style of yoga has been influenced by the teachings and guidance of my teachers over the years and I have embraced various traditions including Ashtanga, Hatha, Vinyasa Flow, Dru Dance, Kundalini, Yin Yoga, Partner Yoga and Qi Gong. I have studied Raja Yoga with the support of the Brahma Kumaris. I enjoy the teachings of the "grass roots community" Balanced View - highlighting clarity in everyday living. As my journey continues.. I learn many things.. But I have chosen my religion : My Religion is "Kindness" with my Buddhist studies continuing to infuse, influence and enrich my daily life.
I care passionately about the environment in which we live and I feel the need to help look after our natural surroundings and protect our planet, combining this with my fascination of people and our spiritual development has opened me to the fullness of life and as a result my personal development and growth will be an on-going adventure.
My Yoga Classes are a fusion of breathing techniques (pranayama) and classic yoga postures (asanas) which support and enhance both the mental and physical aspects of yoga, bringing into union the breath and the postures to build sequences which flow into a moving meditation. My Classes are designed to rebalance the body and restore the mind, bringing clarity and peace into our busy life’s.
Classes suit all levels, ranging from beginners, returners to yoga and experienced yogis. Each class is unique but will follow a format that will start with a “grounding and connecting” element, followed by a warm-up, breathe work, building the postures into a gentle, yet sometimes challenging flow. We will look at balancing postures and end the class with a deep relaxation and close with a few minutes meditation and chanting (should you not feel comfortable chanting, please relax and enjoy the vibrations).
My gentle and inspiring approach will help to expand and deepen your understanding of yoga and how it can impact your daily life as well as gradually build strength and encourage suppleness into your body. Connection between you and your body and your breath and your mind can be challenging but also very rewarding, leaving you feeling mentally refresh, calm and at peace. OM SHANTI
