About the yoga teachers:

10 July - Yogi Rakhee

Rakhee is a Senior Level Yoga Instructor working in London. Her style of teaching is a blend of gentle practice but at times, challenging too. Not a believer in limitations, she encourages students to ‘just try’. Each class is unique and designed to help students create a sense of stillness within, using breathing, relaxation and meditation. Rakhee believes that Yoga can open up our own incredible potential - physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually and that it works for every individual building strength, power, belief, stillness and discipline in a way that nothing else can. Her classes have students who have practiced yoga for decades, right through to those who are experiencing it for the first time. She says that, ‘The class, and I, will meet you at whatever level you're at.’

11 September - Zephyr Wildman

Zephyr Wildman has been teaching in London since 2002 and is registered with Yoga Alliance US & UK as a 500 hour Yoga Teacher. Zephyr currently teaches at yoga centres around London, privately, online platforms and at The Recovery Centre (treatment centre for addiction, depression and other dependency problems). She is a Yoga Ambassador for Our Mala and Lululemon and teaches for The Gates Foundation in London. Her teachings emphasise a combination of anatomy, biomechanics, physiology and kinesiology. Zephyr also has experience in practicing Deep Tissue Massage Therapy since 1991, giving a greater depth of knowledge to her teaching of the human anatomy and physiology, specialising in working with chronic pain, injuries and ailments. As well as the physical side to yoga asana, she has a great interest in integrating psychology, yogic philosophy, and the attraction of self study within her practice, teaching and lifestyle.

09 October - Hannah Lake

Hannah’s dancing background and love of extreme sports brought her to yoga a decade ago for its physical benefits. Her fascination with the discipline of yoga as the integration of mind and body led to teacher training with the respected Yoga Campus (Yoga Alliance accredited). Hannah specialises in yoga as complementary training for professional and amateur sports people and is an advocate for the benefits yoga brings to both the physical and mental aspects of performance. Her classes are based on a her understanding of anatomy and functional movement and inspired by the creative potential of the vinyasa flow style. She is currently undertaking the only Yoga Alliance accredited course for teaching yoga to athletes under Manchester United and Manchester City yoga teacher Sarah Ramsden who pioneered the growth of yoga in professional sport. Hannah teaches public and corporate classes, workshops for sportspeople and private clients. She is driven by a desire to help people hone their skill and develop their strength, flexibility, focus and mental agility.

When not teaching yoga Hannah is Head of Learning at Royal Collection Trust. Hannah has post graduate degrees in philosophy and the history of art, her love of the history of ideas brings additional context and insight to her classes.
