Iyengar Yoga & Helen: a dynamic, warm and caring teaching style
Helen’s love of Iyengar Yoga and desire to make changes in her business and personal life, led her to study and start teaching yoga in 2006. She has always been interested in fitness starting many years ago in non-competitive weight training. It was her ongoing search for harmony in herself that led her to Iyengar yoga. Iyengar Yoga was founded by BKS Iyengar.
Helen is a qualified Iyengar Yoga Junior Intermediate Level 2 teacher. Prior to her Iyengar Yoga certification Helen had qualified as a British Wheel of Yoga teacher and has been teaching and running Iyengar Yoga classes and workshops for many years throughout London; and at Quinta Mimosa, in the Algarve, Portugal.
Helen combines precise and careful body alignment with a dynamic and flowing teaching style. Her teaching is full of warmth and humour, coupled with a well balanced approach to her students with the aim to encourage them to deepen their understanding of their practice within a safe and nurturing environment.
Helen strongly believes that to be a great teacher you have to continue your journey as a student, learning from your teachers, your students and yourself. She is constantly looking for ways to enhance her practise and understanding and continues to attend workshops and classes to deepen her passion for Iyengar yoga and teaching. Her aim is to share her learning with all her students.
