new to yoga?
Being new to yoga can be quite intimidating, but don’t worry, we have all been there. Our Yoga for You program can help bridge that gap to make you feel as comfortable as possible. Our yoga instructor can answer questions such as: What is yoga? How I can benefit? What are the different classes and styles available at evolve that are right for me? They will also answer any questions you have on postures or basic yoga fundamentals.
are you an experienced yoga practitioner?
For more experienced practitioners, the leap from attending yoga classes to starting a self-practice at home in between classes is often daunting. Our yoga instructors can offer advice on how to begin this process. Some people experience a plateau in their practice. In your ‘yoga for you’ session, you have the opportunity to discuss how to refine your practice bring up questions you may have, and get suggestions about literature to further your understanding and bring your practice to another level.

evolve’s ‘yoga for you’ instructors
Bérénice has been practicing Yoga passionately for more than 17 years, studying different approaches from Iyengar, Astanga, Vinyasa, to Shadow and YinYoga, to become more creative in her own practice and teaching. She teaches a style of slow Vinyasa flow, with an emphasis on alignment, core strength and energetic sequencing. She also loves teaching Yin and restorative Yoga, Meditation and Yoga Nidra. The sequences consider student’s health / age group / constitution and time of the year – the connection to the breath and moving energy in the body, by incorporating Pranayama, Relaxation and Meditation techniques inspired from the Hatha Yoga Tradition, Tantra and Ayurveda.
Paula has practised and studied a range of yoga styles over the past thirteen years. Her own experience of yoga’s capacity to aid recovery from injury and ease stress led her to train as a teacher after fourteen years of working full-time in TV and fuels her desire to share yoga’s life-enhancing benefits with others. Paula enjoys teaching groups and individuals around London and on retreats and is also a tutor on the Laxmi Yoga 200 hour Vinyasa and Hatha teacher training programme with Sally Parkes. Her commitment to studying yoga as a teacher and student is ongoing, including qualifying as a Relax and Renew (Restorative Yoga) Trainer with the renowned Judith Hanson Lasater, studying with leading vinyasa flow innovator Shiva Rea and qualifying to teach Pregnancy Yoga with Sally Parkes. Paula is also a writer with script-writing credits for the BBC and currently writes a monthly column for OM Yoga Magazine.
Rebekah has been practising yoga for over 20 years. She began practising Ashtanga Vinyasa and went on to experience and be inspired by many other traditions of yoga which is reflected in her teaching. Rebekah has been teaching for over ten years, training with Yoga Campus and accredited by the British Wheel of Yoga and Yoga Alliance. Ever curious about how she might adapt yoga more towards the needs of the individual, she went on to do a 6-month Foundation course and then 18-month Diploma in Yoga Therapy with Yoga Campus (then in conjunction with the Yoga Biomedical Trust), one of the UK’s leading Yoga Therapy courses, qualifying in 2009. As well as teaching general classes in various yoga centres in London, she works extensively in West London on a one-to-one basis as a yoga therapist, tailoring yoga practices specifically for people facing health issues such as back pain, auto-immune, heart and lung conditions, cancer, depression, anxiety and stress. Rebekah is also trained in pregnancy yoga. She has been a Student Supervisor on Yoga Campus’ current Yoga Therapy Diploma for the last three years.
Kate has been teaching in the UK for the past ten years. Her background in dance greatly complements her teaching as it gave her an in depth understanding of the body and its requirements. Her style of yoga draws on elements from the many different styles she encountered on her travels throughout India, Australia, Asia, Amercia and the wilds of Mongolia, creating a free flowing style with an emphasis on alignment and breathing.
Trained with YogaArts in Byron Bay, Austrailia, Sue has spent her life involved with movement and dance and started practising yoga ten years ago after a back injury. At first she was looking to strengthen her spine and found the confines of the mat limiting, but with time and patience discovered listening to the breath opened up a whole new level of being. She uses the alignment principles from Iyengar to build a safe foundation and then following the breath to open the body in a flow to build juice/rasa, creating a moving meditation to find the essence of ‘just being’. She have been graced with the example of many wonderful teachers. In gratitude to these teachers she passes on the gems that resonate in her practice and the inner teacher of her heart. She has been inspired by ‘Shadow-Yoga’ and the ‘Prana Flow’ of Shiva Rea. More recently she has been integrating the ISHTA (Integrated Science of Hatha, Tantric and Ayurveda) principles from the lineage of Alan Finger under the guidance of Katrina Repka.
