My Love Affair with Yoga
My Yoga journey began back when I was about 15. I was diagnosed with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis in my knee and as a result was very limited to physical activities and sport. I was encouraged to try Yoga, and so the love affair began.
My relationship with Yoga was very much on-again, off-again. It was only when I was about 18 that I really got back into Yoga and decided to follow this on-again-off-again relationship and turn it into a full on relationship.
In September 2016 at the age of 19 I was on a plane to Goa, India. There, I completed my 200hrs of Yoga Teacher Training in Ashtanga at Abhinam Yoga School under the instruction of Yog Namito – who studied under both B.K.S Iyengar and Pattahbi Jois.
My approach to teaching is playful and intuitive, and students are encouraged to move at their own pace, finding that sweet balance of softness and strength. Expect classes to be fluid and explorative, combining creative sequencing and transitions whilst delving deep into the body and the breath with an ever evolving element as we tune into the seasons, weather, moods and cycles of life. I truly believe that movement is medicine and I love to explore all the ways in which we can move within our practice, balancing this with the sweet magic of stillness and breath.
Classes are accompanied by thoughtfully curated playlists, scents and gentle, consensual adjustments.
"Libby's classes are a perfect balance of fun, exploration and well considered sequences to help you stay present on your mat whilst also feeling you've moved your body in many different, explorative and nourishing ways. Her personality shines through in her teaching and her approach to yoga is is always light and fun. Libby's Reggae Yoga classes in the evenings are a playful way of shaking out the day and the combination of music and movement is great and something a little different." ~ Holly Saxton Yoga
