Be you, flow and fly!

Salema is an amazing teacher. She creates such a safe and fun place to learn from her classes. It is a great and unique experience each time I take one of her classes. She combines the elements of alignment and yoga philosophy beautifully. I am so grateful for my Jiva Diva teacher :) 

I really love practising under Salema's guidance. She puts a lot of effort & thought into her classes, and there is always variety. I feel my practice has evolved a lot under her tuition.
I feel I have learnt so much, & her blend of experience with life coaching means you have plenty to think about & practise away from the mat.
She is a lovely person & wish I could attend her classes everyday.

An inspiration

Salema is an inspirational teacher on so many levels, both to students and to other teachers. She has helped me hugely along my journey with Yoga and is still helping me now. Her practices are challenging, whilst at the same time having a softness to them too. They have a wonderfully spiritual dimension and the chanting is awesome! Salema supports her students in so many ways.

One of London's finest yoga teachers

Salema was my first hot vinyasa flow teachers and one of my inspirations for becoming a yoga teacher. She is the full package and so are her classes. They are uplifting and spiritual while being dynamic and playful. Her classes are always at the highest standard.

I am very grateful to call her my teacher.

One of my favourite teachers and practices

Salema is a wonderful teacher and her classes have taken me on a fabulous yoga journey. One which I am still on. The vocal led method and frequent hands on adjustments you receive in her class just help you 'feel' and be present in the pose SO much more. I feel very blessed to have the privilege of her teachings. Long may it continue!

Inspiring and motivating teacher

I have been attending salema's classes for over 5 years and always find myself learning something new, both spiritually and also within the poses. She explains some of the more challenging postures with detailed steps and clarification and yet is her tone and timing are so motivational. What I love the most is that she knows at what stage each student is and adjusts or encourages your personal development with exceptional expertise.

Simply the best

I absolutely love Salema's teaching. It isn't just 'yoga'. It's a complete spiritual experience. I walk away from her classes feeling blessed just to have been there.
