Areas of expertise:
I am a passionate yoga and meditation teacher with a unique approach to teaching — one that is inspirational and embodies the physical, spiritual, and emotional aspects of well being.
I came to yoga when studying and discovered it as a means of relaxing and coping with the stress I had during this time
When I went travelling in Australia, New Zealand and Indonesia I quickly discovered that I loved to share my experience and knowledge with others, so I decided to take it a step further and complete a Yoga Teacher Training Course (with the Yoga Alliance) in 2016. Since then I have been given classes and workshops in over 3 different countries.
Right after my Yoga Teacher training I came to England and moved down to Cornwall to start my business “Lavani Yoga” (lavani.net) and to be close to the ocean as I am a surfer.
I did not stay there for very long though, as I discovered that I wanted to deepen my studies about the human body with a particular interest in Osteopathy. That is when I moved to Kent to start my integrated Masters in Osteopathy. Although my studies are pretty time consuming I do not want to give up teaching as I am a teacher to the core and it gives me so much energy and joy.
My classes, suitable for all levels and ages, are led with a strong emphasis on breath and intentional movement. With a warm, grounded and inclusive attitude, I strive to make everyone in the class feel welcome and comfortable, encouraging a non-competitive nature, playfulness and exploration within each movement and breath.
To immerse into the experience of Yoga I particularly emphasise 3 techniques :
- immersing in the sensation of the body
- following the breath and mind
- observing one´s thoughts
A combination of exercises, classes and workshops coupled with passion, joy and my extensive knowledge of human physiology, allows me to provide my clients with amazing benefits and to create a space for my students to look deep within, freeing them to heal both emotionally and physically.
