Akhil is a genuine and kind yoga teacher whose practice has lead him to explore extensively around the origins of Yoga. This comes through in his teaching style, in which he communicates his knowledge by allowing the practitioner to experience the benefits directly, personally in a way that is tailored to each student. He has contributed to various Yoga studios including working for a period as a director of a leading Yoga studio in India. He continually updates his understanding of both asana and spiritual practice with an open mind and heart, not only for personal development but also for the happiness and progression of those he has the privilege to tutor.
Sara is a trained and accomplished physical trainer with a depth of understanding on anatomy, training and mind-body health. Her background in dance and swimming and more recently as a competitor in triathlon, means she has first-hand experience of numerous physical disciplines. In particular she draws from a martial arts practice spanning 15 years which includes Muay Thai, Kung Fu, Tai Chi and Chi Gong - no ordinary Yoga teacher! She is also a Level 3 personal trainer with specific experience working with rehabilitation at a high-end London PT studio.
Their practice together has come to include a variety of yoga styles, from Swami Sivananda's Hatha Yoga teachings (whose ashram in South India brought them together), to Acro Yoga, Partner Yoga and Yoga Nidra. They attended a silent Vipasanna meditation retreat for 10 days in 2017 and completed a Yoga Nidra course at the Shankar Prasad Ashram in 2018. They see life as an opportunity to day by day improve well being, through their practice and studies, through creativity and cooking, to discover and rediscover one's truest nature in its many colours and flavours.
They are both available for private sessions in Yoga, lifestyle and fitness. Contact them via email or phone.
