"I'm not a teacher, only a fellow traveller of whom you asked the way. I pointed ahead - ahead of myself as well as you...." George Bernard Shaw
Me I never understood why my mother named me Corrina Ananda, until I found yoga. Ananda is sanskrit for bliss... I left London when I was 2 years old. I lived in Trinidad, Iran, Abu Dhabi, Bahrain and Barbados. My parents, siblings and I travelled the world for 2 months of every summer; Asia, Africa, America, Australasia..... we filled passports rapidly. At 18, I moved back to London, and have been here ever since. I enjoy meeting and connecting with people from all walks of life, cultures, religions and socio-economic backgrounds. I am a mother of two boys (now young men!), born at home, raised on yoga, vegan food and LOVE. I discovered yoga in the year 2000, it took root and continues to grow, informing my Self, my life and my relationships.
My Practice Having completed the Primary, Intermediate and Advanced A sequences I am unravelling Advanced B. I received level II authorisation to teach the Ashtanga Yoga method by Sharath Jois, and I am dedicated to sharing the Ashtanga Yoga practice in the tradition of the Jois family in Mysore. I love movement and health, and I am intrigued by the connections between the physical, psychological and emotional body; how working with one directly affects the other. I am super excited by the current explosion within physical culture, the mixing of ideas between gymnastics, yoga and functional movement. It's inspiring seeing people move their bodies and there is always so much to learn. I hold a Masters in the Traditions of Yoga and Meditation from SOAS, London. I am grateful to all the teachers who have lit the path for me: Alexander Medin, Philippa Asher, Hamish Hendry (amongst others) and for the teachings of the late Michael Stone. I am forever a student and it is an honour for me to share this deeply transformative practice with you.
