“I’m passionate about the powerful combination of Yoga and Ayurveda. Together they transform body, heart and mind in the most complete way. It’s my joy and honour to share these two ancient Indian sciences with you in the hope that they enrich and transform your life as they have mine.” Shama
Namaste & thank you for visiting my website,
I am a registered Senior Yoga teacher with the Yoga Alliance UK and have thousands of hours of both training and teaching experience. I am also an Ayurveda Practitioner currently registering with the Ayurveda Practitioners Association UK and a fully qualified Yoga therapist. I have been practicing Yoga for more than 30 years and teaching for 14 years.
A balanced Yoga practice informed by the wisdom of Ayurveda (the Indian ancient healing sister science of Yoga) according to the climate, season, your age, gender, profession and current life conditions,equips you with the tools to switch off a busy mind when you need to, to calm the nervous system, to digest well, to sleep well, to relieve pain, to make space from old belief systems and thinking patterns that do not support your health and happiness, and essentially, to access that place of contentment, joy, peace and compassion that lies hidden within. Yoga alongside Ayurveda offers you all of this.
I have been practicing Ayurvedic Yoga Therapy for 10 years. and more recently I qualified as a Ayurveda Nutrition and Lifestyle Practitioner and also offer Ayurveda body treatments. I am currently studying Ayurveda herbalism as well as furthering my studies in Hatha Yoga. Both Ayurveda and Yoga offer a lifetime of learning and I love to keep learning from the best of teachers so that I can bring much together to offer those whose path I cross. That is my joy and my life’s purpose. I bring Yoga into my Ayurveda consultations and courses, and Ayurveda into my Yoga teaching.
It’s my delight to welcome you to Yoga and/or Ayurveda classes, workshops, courses, retreats, 1-1 sessions. You will find details on all of these offerings on this website. However, please do write to me with your individual requirements and it’d be my pleasure to direct you to the class, course, workshop etc that might most meet your needs.
My Yoga classes will challenge you to increase your flexibility and strength, safely and steadily and to grow and advance in Yoga posture, pranayama and meditation practice but will also bring to you a real understanding of what we are doing and why, and how the practices are working for your deeper health and happiness.
Workshops, retreats and courses are designed both to allow you to deepen your experience of and connection to Yoga posture, breath and meditation practices, as well as to introduce you to the healing power of Ayurveda.
Private Yoga and Ayurveda 1-1 consultations and Ayurveda body treatments are designed to address your individual needs and are perfect for those who may be too busy to make it to Yoga classes, who prefer personalised attention to progress their Yoga practice, or who are living with a health condition or other life challenges and want personalised support for relief of symptoms and restoration of health and well-being. ..
Please contact me with any of your questions, or to find out about or join any class, workshop, retreat and course. I look forward to sharing with you all that Yoga and Ayurveda have to offer you and your life.
Love & blessings, Shama

About this style of Hatha Yoga
The foundation of these Hatha Yoga classes is my Advanced Sivananda Yoga, Structural Yoga Therapy training as well as trainings in Dynamic Hatha, Ayurveda and Tantra Yoga.You will learn proper posture alignment, and from that alignment you will learn and experience the physical, energetic, and mental-emotional effects of postures.
