Yamuna is an experienced E-RYT 500 qualified yoga instructor with 11 years of background tuition, training and practice as a UK doctor in hospital medicine with Radiology specialization.

For the last six years she has lived a nomadic life, travelling, teaching yoga, facilitating workshops, retreats, intensive immersions and teacher training programs around the globe, including Malta, New Zealand, Phuket, Bali, India. She has in depth understanding of the form and function of the human body and disease processes from her medical background which greatly supports her understanding and guidance in Yoga, meditation and breathwork as a holistic ways of healing and sustaining health and wellbeing.

She has nearly two decades of personal yoga practice and has been teaching for over five years.

She truly believes that Yoga, practiced in its totality is medicine for the mind body and soul.

Yamuna integrates her experience in Hatha, Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Restorative Yin, Iyengar, breathwork, kriya, meditation, somatics and trauma healing to deliver an intuitive practice that is relevant and appropriate to the students in front of her.


I love to hold space and support others one on one in their life journey. This gift is a culmination of overcoming many of my own life challenges with lots of time spent in personal silence, contemplation, meditation and self reflection. Since leaving medicine behind and going the road less travelled, I’ve had to cross many mental emotional hurdles, starting with overcoming burnout and leaping over the great wall of fear into the unknown. I entered into a new ecstatic life as a yogi, only to have it curveball into the dark night of the soul after a six week stint of intense vipassana meditation. I went through a complete identity crisis, spiritual disconnection and great period of confusion for three years. Eventually, as the fragments of old conditioning fell away, the light began to shine through brightly again, revealing the truth of myself and existence in all it’s beauty and grace. I love to share the tales of my journey as a means of inspiring hope and faith in others in a similar path and hope that the spiritual helping hand will continue to be passed down to those in need.

I am now offering private tailored 1-1 intuitive yoga guidance on Zoom.
relief discounts are available for those in need.

A great teacher who creates a relaxing space

I have been to Yan for relaxed rejuvenating yoga. She is very good, explains well and adjusts when needed. She always welcomes feedback too.
