Yoga Classes Nairobi, Kenya 

Yoga is an ancient discipline that has been passed down, over thousands of years, in a tradition of teacher to student.  There is an exchange of energy, warmth and humour in the coming together that cannot be extracted from a book.  Coming to a yoga class helps to aid your own self practice.  Yoga is a gentle way to get you back in touch with your body.  One of its greatest values is that it gives a taste of inner stillness.

I currently teach yoga classes in Nairobi, Kenya.

Please see class descriptions and schedule further below…

Yoga Beginner Courses

The first course (Part One) is suitable for complete beginners and anyone looking to brush up on their yoga basics. If you are new to yoga, or simply curious, the beginner course is a perfect way to get started. The course introduces the classic body of yoga asanas (postures) and basic sequences, including sun salutations. A focus on healthy alignment principles and an introduction to pranayama (breathing practices) will help build strength and flexibility. Students will receive personal attention from the teacher week to week providing an ideal environment for learning.  Props are used where necessary to achieve the necessary asana (posture).   This course offers a way to begin your practice and discover yoga in a safe and fun space.

There’s more… 

Develop your Practice!

Subsequent 8 week rolling courses have been devised to follow on from Part One and are suitable for those who are familiar with basic yoga postures and have had some previous yoga experience. These courses form a progressive series that use expert guidance to advance some of the postures featured in Part One, as well as introduce other stronger postures and techniques. The courses are continuous and each course focuses on different themes.  The practice builds up week by week, providing a solid foundation, more confidence and inspiring you to enhance your yoga practice.
