Yoga teacher: Meet Hatha yoga teacher, Caroline Knight

Hatha Yoga Teacher Caroline

What type of yoga do you offer?

Hatha yoga. I also incorporate pranayama, guided meditation and yoga nidra into the classes.

What makes your yoga different? 

While vinyasa and Astanga may be the practice of choice for many people, I believe in taking the yoga down a few notches in pace and really coming into the postures to get maximum benefit for the body, awareness and breath.

While my practice may not have the speed or sweat factor of a vinyasa, it will make you work hard and have you serene by the end of class.

Who is your yoga suited to?

I listen to any demands and needs of my students and adjust my sequence accordingly. I make sure that I offer many variations on the more advanced poses so all abilities and levels of health can participate.

I am extremely keen to encourage more men to discover the amazing power of yoga… for their bodies- inner and outer!

Centre: West London – “Iyengar Yoga Institute in Maida Vale”

Iyengar Yoga London

Iyengar yoga is a form of Hatha yoga that uses belts and blocks to achieve perfect alignment and posture. It is a busy centre with over 50 classes a week for beginners and advanced students. It was opened in 1984 by the founder of Iyengar yoga himself, B.K.S Iyengar.

The centre started in an old artists studio as there was no central place for early London Iyengar teachers to practice, and was funded by the teachers and Mr Iyengar. For ten years, Mr Iyengar stayed at the artists studio on visits to London and it became known as his ‘home away from home’. in 1994 the present building was opened by Mr Iyengar and it is now an award winning studio.

If you’re new to Iyengar or yoga, they have free taster classes and beginners courses.

Centre: Central London – “Triyoga Centres in Covent Garden, Soho and Primrose Hill”

 

Triyoga

 

This is one of the most established and still one of the most exciting yoga centres in London. It has three locations – Primrose Hill, Covent Garden and Soho. All very convenient. It was started by a man called Jonathan Sattin in 2000 who gave up umpteen coffees and cigarettes a day in the pursuit of a more balanced lifestyle. He has a great yoga story to tell

Practising yoga (on the mat) and in a broader way, increased my awareness + instincts across my life; from the way it improved my football (without losing any of my highly competitive streak) to the way I now practiced law with a difference – trusting my instinct as much as knowledge + experience. Read more

Triyoga combines Yoga, Pilates and Treatments to give everyone access to a healthier lifestyle choice. But they are not preachy about it, it’s more about exploring yourself and having fun. They have excellent workshops (e.g. “Where yoga meets Neuroscience” or “Reviving the Spine”) and teachers. If you haven’t tried it yet, get yourself down there in your lunchbreak or after work.

A word of warning, evening and weekend classes can get busy and a packed studio can be intimidating if you are new and find it hard to follow the instructions. So make sure you choose a class that is right for you. If in any doubt, call them or contact us for advice.

Great yoga teachers

Triyoga must have the largest list of yoga teachers connected to their centres, including some of Yogi London’s favourite teachers – Graham Burns (also teaches at the Life Centre), Lisa Sanfilippo, Mark Hill (also teaches Ashtanga at Special Yoga, Kensal Rise), Mimi Kuo Deemer (also teaches at Special Yoga, Kensal Rise),

Centre: Central London – “Oasis Leisure Centre” Holborn

Distinct from purely commercial enterprises, GLL is the first leisure operator in the UK to be awarded the prestigious Social Enterprise Mark.  Not just another leisure company, but a charitable social enterprise that exists for the benefit of the community.

Oasis Sports Centre

Situated in the heart of London, this is a real find for all sorts of activities, not just yoga. Walking past one day I decided to step in and I found an outdoor swimming pool which you can swim in for only £4 an hour (although they said you can stay as long as you like in fact). It’s a real hub of activity in an unbelievably convenient location, it’s cheap and it’s a social enterprise – what a great place! Don’t expect anything luxurious though.

Teacher Review: Hatha and Yin Yoga – “Divya Kohli”

Upavista Konasana-jpegDivya teaches, and encourages a ‘mindful’ yoga practise; refining one’s attention and developing one’s self awareness. In this way, through the vehicle of yoga students can cultivate deep insight about themselves, and their environment.

Through such self-discovery, we find and create a stronger connection not only to our inner values but to the world around us.

Classes are based on classical Hatha Yoga postures, combined with further influences from wider Indian and Buddhist traditions.

Time and assistance is given to enable every student, wherever they are ‘at’ at the time, to really get into and breathe life through the ‘heart’ of a pose.
 
Divya’s practise and teaching combines a keen focus on alignment, a mix of Yin (long, deep held poses) and Yang (dynamic movement) – and a healthy dose of wit and earthiness!
