The Shine London Thursday February 8th, 2018

When: 19:00pm – 22:00pm
Where: Second Home Spitafields
Cost: £27.54

I’m excited to be speaking at this amazing event taking place Thursday, February 8th, 2018 at the Second Home Spitafields. Born in Los Angeles, expanded into New York and now in London, the Shine is a volunteer-produced inspirational experience. The evening features music from local bands, inspiring short films, group meditation, audience-based philanthropy, delicious food, fun questions, and storytelling.

The simple mission is to create a community based, alcohol-free social experience that will leave you feeling nourished and inspired to do more, give more, and be more. I’ll be sharing my journey and experiences while building the UK’s top wellness retreat, my yoga teaching career and now London’s first mindfulness cafe, Yeotown Kitchen. The Shine believes inspiration is the key to bettering our world. Ralph Waldo Emerson said it best: “Our chief desire is for someone to inspire us to be what we know we can be.”

Vinyasa Flow Yoga & Positive Psychology Teacher Training London

Vinyasa Flow Yoga & Positive Psychology Teacher Training London

Our 2017/2018 course is well underway with 25 talented, inspiring new teachers currently being trained to teach Flow Yoga at its finest! 2018/2019 TBD so keep checking back for more details! 

Absolutely. Positively. Vinyasa Flow Yoga Teacher Training is a 200hr Yoga Alliance (US) registered course. This unique YTT programme is the first of its kind to combine both Vinyasa Flow Yoga and Positive Psychology, and utilises a strengths based approach to both teaching and practising Vinyasa Flow Yoga. This includes learning how to enhance and use key character strengths such as resilience, courage, curiosity and perspective to inspire both the student’s practice and the teacher’s teachings. Working hard to identify the teacher’s own inherent strengths and unique teaching voice , there will be a strong focus on intelligent and creative sequencing that takes into account the students and their needs and not a teacher’s pre-planned class or agenda.

02-YA-SCHOOL-RYS-200This 7 month 200hr training will cover aspects such as key postures, alignment, sequencing, simple mantras, anatomy, props and a plethora of effective enhancements and adjustments. There will be discussions and discourse around the roots of yoga, taking into account the hotly debated more recent discoveries and theories around yoga and its history put forth by respected scholars and historians alike. You will learn about the many life enhancing facets of the science of Positive Psychology including easy to apply yet effective tools, interventions and exercises. This course will also provide space for coaching one another using various positive psychology approaches and how to use them with your students. It will explore the seminal work of Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi including his findings around “Flow” (a highly focused mental state) and its connection to authentic happiness and a life of flourishing and how it relates to both our own yoga practice and teaching.

The next Yoga Teacher Training course begins in November 2017 and runs through to May 2018.
