"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 I completed the Primary series with my first teacher Alexander Medin. Philippa Asher took me through my paces for Intermediate and Advanced A and I am currently learning Advanced B under the tutelage of Hamish Hendry and Philippa Asher (when she's in town). I am a KPAYI level II authorised teacher dedicated to sharing the Ashtanga Yoga practice in the tradition of the Jois family in Mysore. On a broader note my personal practice has been deeply touched by the late Micheal Stone & Clive Sheridan. I love movement and outside of my daily yoga practice I enjoy learning and exploring different ways of bringing the body into balance. I hold a Masters in the Traditions of Yoga and Meditation from SOAS, London. I am forever a student and it is an honour for me to share this deeply transformative practice.
