To Balance Mind, Body & Spirit
Chinmayi offers traditional yoga classes, shamanic healing and holistic therapies in an individual and and group setting
Traditional Yoga Classes
Chinmayi has studied, practised and taught many different styles of yoga from traditional Hatha to Classical Kundalini. She has travelled to India several times to expand her knowledge of Akhanda Yoga and to Peru visiting traditional shamen to learn how yoga can incorporate the traditional healing techniques she has learned in over a decade of study.

The Akhanda Yoga approach emphasises a balanced class including a full repertoire of yoga techniques.
All Akhanda Yoga classes are structured systematically yet artfully to align the physical, energetic, mental/emotional and intuitive self.
This yoga gives a complete practice for body, mind and spirit
Shamanism brings deep healing and a feeling of connection with the self through the power of nature. It beautifully marries with the traditional practices of yoga.
A shamanic yoga practice would typically connect with the season, the weather or a traditional celebration. We might focus on one of the seven elements, seven directions, animal power or spiritual guides.
This yoga facilitates deep healing – body and soul
Yoga for Sport
Chinmayi’s focus is balancing the 3 pillars of physical health:
1. Fitness – 2. Flexibity – 3. Strength
This is very popular with sport’s folks who need a good stretch, help preventing or recovering from injury or support with competitions, races and events. Classes are predominantly physical but with some internal work to help with nerves, beliefs and mindset.
This yoga improves physical performance

A Few of the Benefits of Yoga
Whatever you’re feeling, yoga will balance. If you’re feeling sluggish, yoga will energise you. If you’re stressed, it will calm you. No-one ever regretted going to a yoga class!
You always feel better!
Fitness and Performance
We are continually surprised at how fitness levels can be improved through some styles of yoga. Chinmayi’s Yoga for Sport helps lung capacity, upper body and core strength, concentration and focus and of course, flexibility. This greatly reduces the risk of injury.
Chinmayi’s main yoga focus is to switch on the relaxation response from the brain by connecting the physical body with the mind through the energy of the breath.
In doing this we retrain our mind to react differently to life’s challenges. Relationships improve and we feel a deeper sense of purpose and meaning.
One of the most immediate benefits yogis notice is the improvement in sleep – both getting to sleep and staying asleep.
It’s magic (but not surprising) how quickly it does this
A Healthy Body
All of Chinmayi’s classes are crafted to develop and maintain optimum health in all of the body’s systems :- circulation, respiration, digestion and elimination, nervous system and the hormones.
Mind & Soul
Through meditation and a well-structured physical practice, we can heal the emotions and harmful reactions that keep us from moving forward in a happy and contented life.
Chinmayi’s healing techniques are so effective when combined with yoga practice.
Experienced Yoga Teacher and Trainer
It all starts with one class!
Chinmayi had appreciated the benefits yoga and traditional medicine can bring to modern life for many years before deciding to learn how to pass them on to others.
She struggled with stress for many years until she suffered a breakdown. Yoga changed everything for the better.
Whilst now a practising therapist, yoga, meditation and shamanistic teacher, she believes that continuous learning is essential in this ever-changing world and necessary as the whole planet becomes more aware of what holistic, complementary medicine has to offer.
Chinmayi successfully completed 200 hours of yoga teacher training with the Yoga Alliance at the Yandara Yoga Institute in Mexico and 500 hours with the Yoga Alliance at the Anand Prakash Ashram near Rishikesh in India. On her graduation in India, she was given her spiritual name – Chinmayi (meaning ‘bestower of bliss’), by her lifetime teacher Yogrishi Vishvketu. She has travelled extensively through India practising with many different teachers and styles wanting to bring a little more of the spiritual and scientific essences of the practice back to the West through her classes and training.
What People Are Saying
“Her calling to help others is genuine and her approach is simple and warm yet with profound, empowering results”
“I would recommend Chinmayi to anyone but especially if they are in a place of lostness or lowness in their life”
“I loved the combination of asana, pranayama, mantra, meditation and yoga philosophy. I have booked again for next year”
For some years now I’ve been trying to live, think and work differently. Still, I’m not there. I’ve had a push to make myself a priority with my own retreat.
If you want to see real progress, it’s not the tools that make it happen, it’s your consistent action using them and your state of emotional being.

Then add a handful of freshly chopped coriander and serve. So warming and delicious!
