Classic yoga


This class is taught by:

Mark Meacock

MARK has a strong life long sporting career . He spent 10 yrs racing mountain bikes as a sponsored cyclist predominantly racing in the USA. Mark had naturally found a path working within the fitness industry as a personal trainer following a very Holistic approach to fitness and well being . Within and on this path Mark instructed many classes and became a very popular trainer/teacher .

I discovered Yoga some 10 years ago while spending time in a UK based Buddhist temple wanting to still the mind with meditation . I found sitting in a half lotus pose some what painful due to my non flexible body . “ I sourced Yoga classes with the sole intent of becoming more flexible . Some 6 years later i began to realise Yoga was so much more than just Asana / poses . That in fact it was one part of a whole life philosophy & felt drawn from the inside out to learn more about this path of Yoga . I have a love and deep rooted passion to want to share with others all that i have discovered on this path so much so that i enrolled with the the lovely teacher trainer Debbie Avani and followed her teachings with the YA TTC 200hrs course in 2016 . My love continues to flourish with a realisation of all the benefits a regular practice can bring to the individual on a day to day basis . With my life long background in sports i truly believe that coupled with pro activity, nutrition , Meditation , Yoga completes the four elements to sustainable well being .

Jean Stafford

Fifteen years ago I signed up for my first ‘sweaty’ Ashtanga class in Covent Garden. Our teacher was also a talented dancer in the musical ‘Cats’ and he was a wonderful character. I found him inspiring and soon reaped the rewards of including asana practices in my life.

Nowadays, although I still enjoy Ashtanga I am inspired by Vinyasa Flow, which I am qualified to teach. I also love attending a variety of weekly asana classes, to keep my own practice fresh and exciting – whether it is a beginner, or advanced class. It never ceases to amaze me how each teacher offers their own unique teaching style!

Each class I teach uses dynamic and static postures to gently stretch and strengthen the body, and expand the mind. I encourage my students to trust in their bodies and break down more demanding asanas, using their breath as a guide. If the breath feels uncomfortable, we can pull back from a posture.

I like to create a light atmosphere in class so that all students feel welcome, whatever their experience level. Modifications are available so that everyone can explore the postures.

At the end of class we enjoy a well-deserved relaxation allowing students to soak up the benefits of their practice. Our intention is to leave our practice feeling positive about ourselves, fully restored with increased vitality and energy.

I came into Yoga in the Mid 80s learning Transcendental Meditation, which ignited my interest in Eastern Philosophy. In 1986 I embarked on my first trip to India and started to learn about the great Indian Saints , discovering Ramana Maharishi through the books of Paul Brunton. Another book I read during that time was the Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramahansa Yogananda, this book was to lay the foundation for my interest in Kriya Yoga that is my chosen path

This class will encompass the classic Asanas including Pranayam, meditation and philosophy
