Yoga is an ancient form of exercise that focuses on strength, flexibility and breathing to boost physical and mental wellbeing. The main components of yoga are postures (a series of movements designed to increase strength and flexibility) and breathing.
Having grown up within the yogic tradition, Namita has been studying yoga since childhood, spending time during her formative years in Meditation Ashrams in Maharashtra, India and Upstate New York, USA. Over the years, she has used her yoga practice as a tool to deal with the stresses of university, law school and a busy career in the legal profession in the City of London.
A 500 hour qualified Yoga Teacher registered with the Yoga Alliance Professionals (formerly Yoga Alliance UK), Namita specialises in teaching intelligently sequenced Vinyasa Flow classes, with a passion for making yoga accessible to everyone, drawing influence from a number of yogic traditions and schools. She also teaches chair yoga, pranayama and meditation to a group of diabetic patients at a doctor's surgery in East Berkshire.
Namita seeks to provide her students a safe environment in which they are invited to deepen their practice and mind-body connection in playful yet focused classes. With an understanding of the stresses that her students face in their fast paced daily lives, she encourages her students to let go of unconscious reactions to situations moving towards conscious observation and action. The ultimate aim is that these positive thought patterns and mindfulness during one’s yoga practice may filter into other aspects of our lives.
Namita truly believes that yoga is for EVERYONE, and ANYONE can benefit from the practice. She looks forward to seeing you on the mat!
