Kundalini Yoga

Kundalini Yoga is often described as the yoga of awareness. It uses specific combinations of asanas (postures), pranayam (breathing), mantra (sound), bandha (body locks) and meditation to connect the mind, body and soul. The class begins by tuning in with a mantra and is followed by a warm up and the chosen Kriya (sequence of postures). There are many kriyas to choose from so the sequence, postures and focus varies with each class. The kriya is followed by meditation and relaxation. The class closes with a mantra or affirmation. This class helps to; transform stress or worry into focus, clarity and action; stretch, strengthen and tone the body; bring a sense of peace, calm, certainty and purpose and leaves you feeling great!

Herbal Medicine

Yeli began her journey with herbal medicine in 2005, when on sabbatical travelling in Australia and New Zealand she developed an interest in traditional herbal medicine. She was so inspired by this experience that, after her return to the UK she enrolled on a degree course in herbal medicine. After she graduated with a first class Honours Degree in Herbal Medicine she joined the National Institute of Medical Herbalists (MNIMH) and set up in private practice.

I went to a class at Triyoga in Chelsea. What a great experience! Yeli’s class is a great mix of fun, energetic movement and relaxation and I felt (as I am sure everyone else did) extremely comfortable and in safe hands. If you are looking for a genuinely nice and friendly teacher who will guide you concurrently through a physical and spiritual practice then I would highly recommend trying a class.

I attended a retreat in Theale, near Reading, in Summer 2011. Yeli was teaching one of the classes that I participated in. I was a bit anxious about what to expect, but Yeli was really encouraging and motivational. Afterwards I felt really relaxed and chilled-out, and all my anxiety had disappeared. Yeli really is a great teacher!
