Teachers

Graham Burns

23 years working as a commercial lawyer in the City and even longer playing competitive sport gave Graham Burns a unique perspective on how yoga can help with the stresses of daily life. In all his teaching, Graham emphasises that the physical benefits of asana are only a small part of the joy of yoga. Much more important is the combined use of body, breath and mind to help us find our true essence. His dynamic but relaxed asana style is rooted in his studies of the Ashtanga Vinyasa tradition with Richard Freeman, but Graham’s classes are imaginatively sequenced with a particular focus on their more subtle energetic effects, and typically also include both pranayama (breath work) and meditation/visualisation. Graham initially trained in California in 2000, and continues to study with top US based teachers Rod Stryker and Richard Freeman. He is a member of the teaching faculty of the Yogacampus Yoga Teacher Training Diploma course, where, as well as teaching meditation and Sanskrit, he is able to indulge his passion for the study of yoga history and philosophy. Graham holds a Master’s degree in Indian religions from the University of London’s School of Oriental and African Stuudies, where he specialised in exploring the historical roots of contemporary yoga. Above all, he is known for his humorous and light-hearted approach to teaching, while still preserving the best elements of the yoga tradition.

    Jivamukti Spiritual WarriorBook Now

    In Jivamukti Yoga the spiritual teachings of yoga are typically linked with the more physical practise (asana). Jivamukti Yoga was founded by Sharon Gannon and David Life in 1984 in New York. It is a yoga method that is based on a strong Vinyasa practice set to music (connecting yoga asanas through fluid transitions, driven by the breath), and it integrates teachings from five other yogic disciplines: Swadhyaya (Study of the Self/Philosophy), Ahimsa (the Practice of Non-Violence), Bhakti (Devotion), Nada Yoga (Yoga of Sound) and Meditation. The purpose of this methodology is to learn how to improve one’s quality and joy of life, and to bring greater harmony into our relationships.
    Jivamukti Spiritual Warrior classes are fast paced and invigorating. The structure is a fixed set sequence instructed in a vinyasa style. It is a fully balanced class which includes asana warm-up, chanting, setting of intention, surya namaskar, standing poses, backbends, forward bends, twists, inversions, meditation and relaxation.

Iyengar, is firmly based on the traditional eight limbs of yoga as expounded by Patanjali in his Yoga Sutras, emphasising the development of strength, stamina, flexibility and balance, as well as concentration (dharana) and meditation (dhyana).

    Baby MassageBook Now

    For babies from 6 weeks to sitting. These classes have been developed and tailored by Peter Walker, leading author and baby massage specialist, to help you learn how to give your baby the best start in life.

    In some Asian and African cultures babies have been massaged everyday from birth for centuries. Baby massage is recognised in the West today to give babies a great start in life.

    Developmental Baby massage works with the muscles and joints to achieve all the benefits of orthodox massage while helping the baby to fulfil her structural and physiological potential at each stage of development from birth to standing.

    Benefits include:

    • All benefits of communication through touch
    • Supports the development of a wide range of movement from birth to standing
    • Encourages growth and development by stimulating the appetite and aiding digestion
    • Improves and maintains muscle strength and flexibility
    • Can help to relieve minor discomfort like wind, colic, blocked nose
    • Builds foundation for good posture
    • Induces a sense of well being and relaxation for mother and baby
    • Playful and enjoyable time to bond with your baby

    Baby Massage classes with Alice are small with personal attention to each baby (maximum 15 babies in a class). Alice uses a doll to demonstrate baby massage techniques, which parents and carers then practise on their babies. The class starts with a warm up followed by a full body massage. Lying on their backs the babies have their feet massaged first, then the massage moves up to the legs, belly chest and arms. Babies have plenty of time on their bellies as well as a chance to sit, squat and stand supported. At the end of each session mums, dads or carers have the opportunity to have an informal discussion with tea and biscuits, while the babies either sleep, feed or just chill out. Soft baby gymnastics can also be demonstrated for babies that are on the move.

After preparing the physical body through relaxation, participants are then guided through Yoga Nidra.

    Yoga Nidra is a guided meditation, and can be a deep form of relaxation. Generally practised in Savasana, it can also be done semi-reclining or sitting.

    Yin Yoga All LevelsBook Now

    Yin Yoga is a practice where postures are held for 3 minutes or more. This length of time is used to open into the thicker layers of connective tissues around the joints that a moving, dynamic practice may not as effectively access.

    During this time of stillness, the physical, energetic, emotional and mental states of being are refined and aligned through heightened inner awareness. When this inner awareness is allowed to grow in stillness, knowledge is gained in maintaining a quiet and conscious state at all times; whether the external environment is one of calm or chaos.

    Yin Yoga is a perfect compliment to a dynamic (Yang) style practice and an extremely subtle and profound practice on its own.

    Yin yoga: an opportunity to soften as through holding postures for sustained periods of time, we examine limits and explore potentials. The focus is on feeling as through practice we develop attentiveness and refine awareness. The practice is available to all wishing to slow down and soften.

    Relax + Restore + Stillness (£25)Book Now

    Book Online, at reception or call 020 7704 0919 Join Adelene for this regular event every third Friday of the month to relax into the weekend. To ‘rest’, to ‘relax’ and to ‘restore’ is essential to everyone especially in today’s society and stressful lifestyle. To ‘rest’ deeply is to experience relaxation, where there is effortlessness, quietness and peace.

    Restorative Yoga (RY) is postures adapted from classical yoga asana, where the practice focus is relaxing the body in restful supported positions. Each pose is usually held for a few minutes and then gradually extended to longer hold for the experienced. Consistent practice balances the autonomic nervous system, therefore supporting the environment to renew and heal.

    Carefully selected from Adelene’s self-practice series, these practice-based classes offers ‘active’ relaxation followed by quiet sitting, to allow time and space to renew and rejuvenate the body and the mind. **** If booking for more than one person, please make sure you enter the name of the second person, otherwise they will not appear on the roster. Please call 020 7704 0919 if you have any difficulties in booking for more than one person. ****

    Baby MassageBook Now

    For babies from 6 weeks to sitting. These classes have been developed and tailored by Peter Walker, leading author and baby massage specialist, to help you learn how to give your baby the best start in life.

    In some Asian and African cultures babies have been massaged everyday from birth for centuries. Baby massage is recognised in the West today to give babies a great start in life.

    Developmental Baby massage works with the muscles and joints to achieve all the benefits of orthodox massage while helping the baby to fulfil her structural and physiological potential at each stage of development from birth to standing.

    Benefits include:

    • All benefits of communication through touch
    • Supports the development of a wide range of movement from birth to standing
    • Encourages growth and development by stimulating the appetite and aiding digestion
    • Improves and maintains muscle strength and flexibility
    • Can help to relieve minor discomfort like wind, colic, blocked nose
    • Builds foundation for good posture
    • Induces a sense of well being and relaxation for mother and baby
    • Playful and enjoyable time to bond with your baby

    Baby Massage classes with Alice are small with personal attention to each baby (maximum 15 babies in a class). Alice uses a doll to demonstrate baby massage techniques, which parents and carers then practise on their babies. The class starts with a warm up followed by a full body massage. Lying on their backs the babies have their feet massaged first, then the massage moves up to the legs, belly chest and arms. Babies have plenty of time on their bellies as well as a chance to sit, squat and stand supported. At the end of each session mums, dads or carers have the opportunity to have an informal discussion with tea and biscuits, while the babies either sleep, feed or just chill out. Soft baby gymnastics can also be demonstrated for babies that are on the move.
