After running a London Marathon 15 years ago I felt that my body needed something else.
Having self- practised for many years I started to teach and wanted to share with others my experience and enthusiasm and how it can be enjoyed by everyone.

Eve’s training and personal practice has initially been very much founded in Ashtanga/Vinyasa Flow, as well as being Anusara and Jivamukti inspired, but in the last few years has been balanced by the devotion to, and daily practice of Yin Yoga.
Eve continues to study, practice and share her knowledge of the Eight Limbs of Ashtanga Yoga and loves learning and practicing Sanskrit and chanting.
She more recently has been developing her practice and love of Yin Yoga, and has completed her Yin Yoga training with Tara Belcourt of Bohdiswaha Yoga, and wishes to share this beautiful and special practice in her own weekly class at the Inner Temple studio.
Eve’s Yin Yoga class is a meditative form of yoga with asanas held for 3-5 minutes. Each pose working deep within the layers of muscle and connective tissues within the body. This class will focus on the main principles of Yin Yoga… firstly, coming into the pose to your appropriate edge, allowing stimulating sensations to be present without feeling overwhelmed. Secondly, finding stillness, and becoming mentally willing to surrender to the experience. And thirdly, building the capacity of holding the poses for up to 5 minutes.
Eve wholeheartedly believes that this practice cultivates physical ease and mental calm. Learning to stay in a pose for five minutes at a time trains the mind and body to become calm and endure distraction, both physically and mentally.
Within Eve’s classes, she hopes to provide thoughtful sequences that promote the healthy flow of chi, weaving in pranayama breath practice, meditation, chanting and mantras, as well as understanding the meridian system and physiological aspects of stimulating the flow of fluids to muscles, joints and fascia.
Eve values and honours the complete healing benefits of practicing yoga on Mind, Body and Spirit. Her goal is to deliver a class that not only works toward the physical benefits of gaining flexibility and strength in the body, but also works to develop inner focus, quieting of the mind, heart lifting and opening, healing through connection to self, cultivating gratitude and building compassion and care for self and others.
Eve’s passion and interest in healing and wholeness doesn’t stop at yoga… She is a practicing Psychotherapist and Specialist Trauma Consultant working in private practice with all mental health issues and personal growth and development. She is a Registered Member of the BABCP and BACP, utilising Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy, Integrative and Body Psychotherapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, EMDR, Mindfulness, and Calatonia (Body Work) Therapy.

Kelly is a Yoga Alliance Accredited teacher. She has been lucky enough to have been practising yoga ever since she was a child, but since the birth of her son her practise has increased and she found yoga provided the much needed stillness she craved.
Her yoga style is mostly classical Hatha with some influence from Kundalini Yoga and mindfulness practices. The aim of her classes is always to connect the mind and body in order to create a better sense of well-being both mentally and physically.
She will be starting new term time classes from Wed 19th Sept at 10am. This will be a Hatha Yoga class aimed mostly at beginners and improvers. It will combine classical postures with breathwork, restorative postures and relaxation techniques.

Hatha / Vinyasa for beginners and intermediate
I wanted to share my love and 15+ years knowledge and experience of yoga with those that wished to learn and here I am living that dream! I have found that a combination of my love of science (a Physics degree allied with an inquisitive mind) and yoga means that I delve in to the science behind it with every class I teach. Sometimes though – as I’ve learnt through the years – you need to let go of “why?” And just be…
My style is warm, friendly and fun – you will always be welcomed to class with a big smile and my hope is you will leave with one. I teach a vinyasa / hatha mix; postures (asanas) that mostly flow, but sometimes holding the asana to strengthen muscles and get in to the fascia tissue, thereby getting the best of both styles.
I will teach you the power of your breath (pranayama) to help you in your asana practice and how that in turn transforms all the chemical activity of thoughts in your brain in to a more tranquil mind. This then helps with the final part of the class, a guided meditation to bring awareness to where your mind is at that moment; no mumbo-jumbo, just science in action. Releasing you back in to the world with true wellbeing – body, mind and soul nourished.
Please check out my website for further information and don’t hesitate to get in touch with any questions – or of course to book!
