Yoga & Meditation Teacher
Yvi believes strongly in a holistic approach of life. Her treatments intuitively join her yogic understanding and therapeutic touch. Her integrated approach incorporates not only the needs of the body, but also cares for the mental-emotional and spiritual body, inspiring a sense of deep relaxation and overall well-being. Her gentle yet powerful way of teaching gives the students an opportunity to explore the practices deeply and imply them into their day to day life. Her treatments and classes are tailored to the needs and abilities of her clients - always emphasizing a holistic understanding of the interconnection between body, mind and spirit.
Yvi has been practising Yoga since 1998 when she encountered the wealth of wisdom that yoga philosophy has to offer during a visit to the internationally renowned yoga ashram Bihar Yoga Bharati in India. The teachings and life style she experienced left such a profound impression on Yvi that she continued to live there for the next nine years. During this time she had the wonderful opportunity to study the ancient subjects of Yoga, Samkhya, Vedanta, Tantra and other allied subjects.
She attained a Diploma course in yogic studies in 1999 and received initiation into Sannyasa in 2000 thus underlining her commitment to a life style dedicated to spiritual growth. In 2008 she completed the Yoga Teacher Training at the Atma Centre, Ohio, USA. Since 2010, after being blessed with a wonderful little baby girl, Yvi has also been teaching Pregnancy yoga. She completed her training as an accredited Pregnancy yoga teacher with the very inspirational womb yoga founder Uma Dinsmore-Tuli.
In 2015 Yvi then went on and trained as a Holistic Massage, Pregnancy Massage Therapist and Baby Massage Instructor with the London School of Massage, Itec Level 3 (FHT & CThA accredited) .
I was struggling to find somewhere with good value for money that did not compromise on the experience. Yvi was incredibly welcoming, professional, and clearly an expert in her knowledge. I will definitely book again, and recommend her to family and friends.
You have an amazing and therapeutic touch, with energy, passion and competence. I could surrender to that. Loved the massage ... You just hit the right spot.
