Throughout my busy successful career as a Project Manager working in the Financial Services sector, both in the UK and overseas, I've mindfully kept my yoga practice going to help keep a balance in my life and to keep me sane. In 2006, I seized an opportunity between jobs to spend time in India to deepen my understanding of yoga and certified as an RYS Yoga Teacher, under Yogi Vishvketu. It was here Asha Jhoti, my yogic name was given to me which translates to ‘Light of Hope.’
Whilst my teaching follows the Hatha style of yoga, I like to incorporate elements from other styles. Typically in one of my yoga classes, I will guide you though a combination of postures (asanas,) breathing exercises (pranayama,) and relaxation/internal focus techniques. Yoga is a non-competitive activity which exercises the mind, body and improves breathing. It promotes balance, core stability, strength and flexibility, alongside encouraging us to make space to absorb the benefits of our practice. All this can help to re-energise and rejuvenate ourselves. My teaching is suitable for the complete beginner up to intermediate level.
