Yogabud works in a Yin Yoga approach, working in a therapeutic style that is great for all levels and ages, at Yogabud I aim for people to feel confident on and off their mat, using the time and space to move through certain areas of discomfort and explore a different way of being involved in yoga.
Yogabud is for everyone and is a great way to reconnect with our personal self from our everyday self, come and join us and bring the yin flow into your life.
I have been practicing yoga for some years now and chose to take on the journey to learn to teach in 2014. Working as a Therapist in Brixton, London for over 4yrs I have always felt there was something more I could offer to the children, young people and women I worked with, knowing the change yoga had made in my own life I felt it would be a brilliant tool if I could offer it alongside my therapeutic work, after a number of years of contemplating what yoga school to work with, I finally decided to take some time to travel and see if I could find a guru and specific school that suited me.
I initially thought I would find this school in India, I spent a week learning with the Himalayan Iyengar Yoga Centre and thoroughly enjoyed this style of learning, but knew it wasn’t what I wanted to teach. I realised I wanted something that was more therapeutic based then alignment based as felt therapeutic yoga has to suit the individual par-taking and there is not one set way for all.
Eventually I chose to head to South East Asia and found myself in Bali, after taking one Yin Yoga class at the Yoga barn with Denise Payne I knew I had to train with this amazing teacher, a day later i was signed onto her teaching and one week later I was settled in Bali, studying with One Song Yoga, a journey I will never forget, I feel it was a dynamic individual style of teaching, leaving me qualified to work in Vinyasa, Restorative and Yin Yoga and basic Myo Fascial Release therapy.
