Sivani Mata Francis

Sivani Mata is a student of Bhakti Yoga (the yoga of love and devotion) and began her journey with this practice through attending various Kirtan (chanting) evenings in London and on her travels. Particularly with family band GOMA, who inspired her to live in trust and bhakti spirit in all aspects of life. She began to lead Kirtan after spending New Year 2009 with Jai Uttal on his Kirtan camp, followed by a Yoga Teacher Training in Mexico at the Yandara Yoga Institute, where an incredible resident kirtan band, Jaya made chanting a key element. Since then Sivani has been running chanting circles and gatherings in the UK, and has released three kirtan albums I AM (2012), Shakti Live (2015) and the most recent a double disc album: Surrender (2016), all produced by bhakti musical magician Tabla Tom. Having fallen in love with the path of Bhakti Yoga, Sivani organised the UK’s first ever Bhakti Music Festival (in August 2011) and regular 11hr Bhakti Immersion days in London called Be Love, which bring devotional musical practices from various traditions together as one, in the spirit of universal love and devotion. Inspired by her Bhakti Practice, Sivani also shares Yoga Nidra, Women’s Yoga, Restorative Yoga and Shakti Dance with bhakti spirit, centring these practices in the heart to unveil ones true nature.

Sivani Mata feels incredibly blessed to have found this divine practice and be able to share it with others.

    Scaravelli Inspired Yoga - All LevelsBook Now

    Inspired by Vanda Scaravelli, who practised with Iyengar for many years, these classes are a gentle, yet demanding, form of hatha yoga. Working with the breath, the pull of gravity on the body, and the resulting unravelling and release of the spine, this approach can be very helpful for those working with chronic, but not acute, spinal or postural issues. Classes vary from week to week, and are typically alignment based and subtle, giving us time to examine the postures, and our approach to them, in depth. Great emphasis is placed on recognising that each person is an individual, and adapting the yoga to reflect that. Working this way provides a welcome counterpoint to those working with a more dynamic practice, and is a nourishing and sustaining practice in its own right. Suitable for all levels of experience.

    Gentle Yoga with Yoga NidraBook Now

    A softer and more meditative practice, dedicated to remedial and gentle yoga practice. Suitable for students of any age and experience, who wish to practise gently and relax deeply. Also ideal for beginners and for those recovering from illness or injury.

    Yoga Nidra translates as Yogic Sleep. It is state of physical and mental relaxation, between wakefulness and deep sleep and the objective is to cultivate that state, without falling asleep. It is used as a relaxation practice, also a form of meditation, treatment for stress and anxiety and purification of the negative habits of mind. It is generally practised lying in savasana, but can be done sitting, or semi-reclining. This can help one remain conscious and aware if there is a tendency to fall asleep.

    This form of yoga nidra was devised by Swami Satyananda from an ancient tantric practice and includes eight verbally guided stages. The eight stages are: Internalisation, Sankalpa (intention), Rotation of Consciousness, Breath Awareness, Manifestation of Opposites, Creative Visualization, Sankalpa repeated and Externalisation.

    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.

    Mantra Meditation: Roots and Fruit (£35 earlybird, £40 thereafter)Book Now

    There are many variations on two primary approaches to meditation: 1) present moment open attention and 2) focused attention on a chosen object. In both cases the key features are the abilities to be present with what is arising naturally in the body/breath/mind, and to sustain focused concentration on an object of attention. Meditation is both surprisingly simple and often amazingly hard to do. Some things help: feeling supported by a group and a guide, finding a good fit place for it in your daily routine, and feeling positively drawn to the object of attention. If we feel better when we make time for it that is the best motivation.

    The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali recommend using mantra: repetition of words with a positive meaning for us. We can sing them out loud as bhakti devotion, or chant them mentally as japa repetition. Either way we are choosing the thoughts, feelings, and attitudes we desire to connect ourselves with more deeply. Through repetition the mantra works its way into the roots of our being. Just as reliability what nourishes us cycles back out and is expressed in the fruit of our thoughts, feelings, and actions.

    Over the years I have been fortunate to study with master teacher Pandit Rajamani Tigunait of the Himalayan Institute who has imparted mantras to me to cultivate connection, protection, guidance, liberation, and enhancement of function. It is rare to find a living teacher who can pass on these mantras fully imbued with the prana of deeply sustained practice. In this workshop I will pass two sets of them to you: a series of mantras to begin the day, and a verse from the Siva Suktas to cultivate the retentive power of memory. I will share with you translations of the meaning, teach you pronunciation, and record the group chanting to provide ongoing group and guide support for your home practice of the mantras.

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). Iyengar Yoga focuses on the structural alignment of the physical body (often with the use of props such as blocks and straps) through the development of asanas. It aims to unite the body, mind and spirit for health and well being. Iyengar Yoga is considered a powerful tool to relieve the stresses of modern-day life which in turn can help promote total physical and spiritual well being.

    Scaravelli Inspired Yoga - All LevelsBook Now

    Inspired by Vanda Scaravelli, who practised with Iyengar for many years, these classes are a gentle, yet demanding, form of hatha yoga. Working with the breath, the pull of gravity on the body, and the resulting unravelling and release of the spine, this approach can be very helpful for those working with chronic, but not acute, spinal or postural issues. Classes vary from week to week, and are typically alignment based and subtle, giving us time to examine the postures, and our approach to them, in depth. Great emphasis is placed on recognising that each person is an individual, and adapting the yoga to reflect that. Working this way provides a welcome counterpoint to those working with a more dynamic practice, and is a nourishing and sustaining practice in its own right. Suitable for all levels of experience.

    If you are completely new to yoga, want to get more confident with your practice, or perhaps have been practising for a while but want to revisit the basics then our new, improved beginners’ yoga course is for you.
    Drawing on over 25 years of experience of teaching yoga, our Beginners course introduces all the key elements of a Yoga practice including key yoga poses and sequences, breath awareness, linking breath to movement and basic Yoga philosophy.
    In addition to a weekly practice at the studio, each week you’ll receive a 15 minute video sequence to practice at home in your own time.
    We believe that yoga is for everyone regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, size and level of fitness – but we also recognise that for those new to the practice it can feel intimidating to get started with our regular classes. This course provides a safe and welcoming space for you to get to grips with the basics of yoga and carve out time for your own wellbeing.
    Course Structure:
    This course builds sequentially, and has been designed to incorporate the full spectrum of yoga practices.
    Over the course of 6 weeks you will cover:
    • Week 1: What is Yoga – Moving with Breath – Standing Poses
    • Week 2: Grounding – History of Yoga – Movements of the Spine
    • Week 3: Introduction to vinyasa and Backbending – Yoga beyond Asana
    • Week 4: Twists and Backbends
    • Week 5: Seated Postures and Meditation
    • Week 6: Consolidation The Monday evening course is taught by Phillipa Gendall, an established Ashtanga and Vinyasa Flow teacher. Phillipa's teaching style centres on the flow and grace of the breath linking the poses, with an emphasis on alignment. She feels a yoga practice should be made to 'fit your body, rather than your body fit the practice'. What next?
    The aim of the course is to provide a gateway into the diverse range of yoga classes on offer at The Life Centre. By the end of the course we should feel confident to attend any of our Level 1 or Level 1-2 yoga classes and more importantly, inspired to continue your yoga practice with us.
    Yoga can be a lifelong practice and a beginner’s course is only the beginning, but to help you on your way, on completion of the course you are eligible to purchase a half-price 10 class pass for £65 or a half-price 1 month unlimited pass for £70 (one half price offer per client, if you have previously purchased a half price offer as part of our New Client Offer then this is not available to purchase again).

    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.

    Restorative Yoga & Yoga Nidra All LevelsBook Now

    Restorative poses are practised in a passive state with various props so the body can feel supported, rested and nurtured. Specific poses offered at each class will focus on a different theme, however, all the systems of the body benefit from this deep relaxation. Some of the measurable results of relaxation are the reduction of blood pressure and the improvement of immune function, as well as improvement in digestion, fertility, and the reduction of muscle tension and general fatigue. 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.

    Meditation All Levels (£7)Book Now

    With the mind in its busy everyday mode, we are often not able to see things with the necessary perspective. We can easily feel stressed, pulled into the future and past, and struggling to be truly present as our life happens.
    Meditation brings together mindful attention with a willingness to be quiet and tune in. We give ourselves time to explore what we actually feel, rather than trying to create what we think our life should be like. The more honestly we know ourselves, the more we are able to be in control of our moods and emotions.
    We’ll explore a variety of techniques inspired by Buddhist and Yogic teachings and secular mindfulness practice.
    All are welcome, no previous experience necessary.

    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.

    Tuesday Beginners Yoga 6 Week Course Islington (Pre-booking Required) £120Book Now

    If you are completely new to yoga, want to get more confident with your practice, or perhaps have been practising for a while but want to revisit the basics then our new, improved beginners’ yoga course is for you.

    Drawing on over 25 years of experience of teaching yoga, our Beginners course introduces all the key elements of a Yoga practice including key yoga poses and sequences, breath awareness, linking breath to movement and basic Yoga philosophy.

    In addition to a weekly practice at the studio, each week you’ll receive a 15 minute video sequence to practice at home in your own time.

    We believe that yoga is for everyone regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, size and level of fitness – but we also recognise that for those new to the practice it can feel intimidating to get started with our regular classes. This course provides a safe and welcoming space for you to get to grips with the basics of yoga and carve out time for your own wellbeing.

    Course Structure:
    This course builds sequentially, and has been designed to incorporate the full spectrum of yoga practices.

    Over the course of 6 weeks you will cover:
    • Week 1: What is Yoga – Moving with Breath – Standing Poses
    • Week 2: Grounding – History of Yoga – Movements of the Spine
    • Week 3: Introduction to vinyasa and Backbending – Yoga beyond Asana
    • Week 4: Twists and Backbends
    • Week 5: Seated Postures and Meditation
    • Week 6: Consolidation

    The Tuesday evening course is taught by Sandi Sharkey, a supportive and experienced teacher who combines the practices of yoga, mindfulness and relaxation to promote centering, brightness and ease.  

    What next?
    The aim of the course is to provide a gateway into the diverse range of yoga classes on offer at The Life Centre. By the end of the course we should feel confident to attend any of our Level 1 or Level 1-2 yoga classes and more importantly, inspired to continue your yoga practice with us.

    Yoga can be a lifelong practice and a beginner’s course is only the beginning, but to help you on your way, on completion of the course you are eligible to purchase a half-price 10 class pass for £65 or a half-price 1 month unlimited pass for £70 (one half price offer per client, if you have previously purchased a half price offer as part of our New Client Offer then this is not available to purchase again). Available to purchase up to two weeks after the completion of your course.

    A softer and more meditative class, dedicated to remedial and gentle yoga practice. Suitable for students of any age and experience, who wish to practise gently and relax deeply. Also ideal for beginners and for those recovering from illness or injury.Yoga nidra translates as 'yogic sleep'. However, rather than actually sleeping, in yoga nidra you will lie down and be guided by the teacher into a state of profound physical and mental relaxation, somewhere between wakefulness and sleep. As well as allowing our bodies and minds some much needed rest, this also allows the sub-conscious mind to be at its most receptive, so that the practice can help to sow seeds of positive intention as well as help let go of negative habits. Yoga nidra has also been shown to help relieve stress, tension and anxiety, and has become a valuable therapeutic tool in many contexts. Classes described as 'with Yoga Nidra' will generally include at least 20 minutes of yoga nidra practice, usually at the end of the class. No prior experience of yoga nidra is needed in order to attend these classes.

    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.

    Iyengar Level 1-2Book Now

    Iyengar Yoga, created by B.K.S. 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). Iyengar Yoga focuses on the structural alignment of the physical body (often with the use of props such as blocks and straps) through the development of asanas. It aims to unite the body, mind and spirit for health and well being. Iyengar Yoga is considered a powerful tool to relieve the stresses of modern-day life which in turn can help promote total physical and spiritual well being.

    Jivamukti Yoga Level 2Book 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.

    Thursday Beginners Yoga 6 Week Course Notting Hill (Pre-Booking Required) £120Book Now

    If you are completely new to yoga, want to get more confident with your practice, or perhaps have been practising for a while but want to revisit the basics then our new, improved beginners’ yoga course is for you.

    Drawing on over 25 years of experience of teaching yoga, our Beginners course introduces all the key elements of a Yoga practice including key yoga poses and sequences, breath awareness, linking breath to movement and basic Yoga philosophy.


    In addition to a weekly practice at the studio, each week you’ll receive a 15 minute video sequence to practice at home in your own time.

    We believe that yoga is for everyone regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, size and level of fitness – but we also recognise that for those new to the practice it can feel intimidating to get started with our regular classes. This course provides a safe and welcoming space for you to get to grips with the basics of yoga and carve out time for your own wellbeing.

    Course Structure:
    This course builds sequentially, and has been designed to incorporate the full spectrum of yoga practices.

    Over the course of 6 weeks you will cover:
    • Week 1: What is Yoga – Moving with Breath – Standing Poses
    • Week 2: Grounding – History of Yoga – Movements of the Spine
    • Week 3: Introduction to vinyasa and Backbending – Yoga beyond Asana
    • Week 4: Twists and Backbends
    • Week 5: Seated Postures and Meditation
    • Week 6: Consolidation

    The Thursday evening course is taught by Zhozeh Zarrindast. Zhozeh is a warm and welcoming teacher who brings over 18 years of practice to her teaching. Her teaching brings a subtle awareness to the spine, allowing time for the breath to soften the body and the mind so students have the time to move in and out of postures with ease. 

    What next?
    The aim of the course is to provide a gateway into the diverse range of yoga classes on offer at The Life Centre. By the end of the course we should feel confident to attend any of our Level 1 or Level 1-2 yoga classes and more importantly, inspired to continue your yoga practice with us.

    Yoga can be a lifelong practice and a beginner’s course is only the beginning, but to help you on your way, on completion of the course you are eligible to purchase a half-price 10 class pass for £65 or a half-price 1 month unlimited pass for £70. Available to purchase up to two weeks after the completion of your course (one half price offer per client, if you have previously purchased a half price offer as part of our New Client Offer then this is not available to purchase again.)

    Scaravelli Inspired Yoga - All LevelsBook Now

    Inspired by Vanda Scaravelli, who practised with Iyengar for many years, these classes are a gentle, yet demanding, form of hatha yoga. Working with the breath, the pull of gravity on the body, and the resulting unravelling and release of the spine, this approach can be very helpful for those working with chronic, but not acute, spinal or postural issues. Classes vary from week to week, and are typically alignment based and subtle, giving us time to examine the postures, and our approach to them, in depth. Great emphasis is placed on recognising that each person is an individual, and adapting the yoga to reflect that. Working this way provides a welcome counterpoint to those working with a more dynamic practice, and is a nourishing and sustaining practice in its own right. Suitable for all levels of experience.

    Gentle Yoga with Yoga NidraBook Now

    A softer and more meditative practice, dedicated to remedial and gentle yoga practice. Suitable for students of any age and experience, who wish to practise gently and relax deeply. Also ideal for beginners and for those recovering from illness or injury.

    Yoga Nidra translates as Yogic Sleep. It is state of physical and mental relaxation, between wakefulness and deep sleep and the objective is to cultivate that state, without falling asleep. It is used as a relaxation practice, also a form of meditation, treatment for stress and anxiety and purification of the negative habits of mind. It is generally practised lying in savasana, but can be done sitting, or semi-reclining. This can help one remain conscious and aware if there is a tendency to fall asleep.

    This form of yoga nidra was devised by Swami Satyananda from an ancient tantric practice and includes eight verbally guided stages. The eight stages are: Internalisation, Sankalpa (intention), Rotation of Consciousness, Breath Awareness, Manifestation of Opposites, Creative Visualization, Sankalpa repeated and Externalisation.

    Mythical Flow (£20 earlybird, £25 thereafter)Book Now

    Tanja’s special Mythical Flow classes combine inspirational story-telling of the Indian myths with a creative vinyasa practice and end with a long, deep savasana to let go of the week into the weekend. The wisdom of the mythical archetypes will be interwoven into the flow of the practice to help us recognise traits and patterns within ourselves. The symbolism of the myths is really about what happens within all of us, and through connecting to different deities it allows us to reflect over how these different aspects shape our behaviour and who we are in the world. Tanja is known for her varied and creative sequencing, challenging yet centering practice whilst creating a nurturing atmosphere. Students are encouraged to make the practice their own, honouring both their edge and their limitations. After the class there will be tea and brownies to enjoy in the company of fellow yogi/nis - what better way to spend a Friday evening? **** If booking for more than one person, please call 020 7704 0919.

Book Now

A 20% discount is available to senior citizens, registered unemployed and full time students. Available to purchase in centre only proof of status is required.

Join us to share in an evening of Kirtan. Singing the profoundly healing sounds of sanskrit mantra effortlessly drops our awareness out of our busy minds and into our hearts. Kirtan is from the path of Bhakti Yoga (pure love and compassion) and responds to where you are it and what you need in that moment, whether that is to bring you to a space of calm or elation. It can be deeply moving and incredibly joyful.

Each month Sivani Mata will be joined by The Shakti Soul Family, a collective of musicians passionate about bhakti: Michelle Crozier (drum and divine harmonies), Mark Fisher (guitar), Michael McCaffrey (bells and shakers), Jezney Hollis (mandolin) and occasionally others. The family supports the Kirtan with heartfelt warmth and rootsy rhythms as a sound foundation for everyone present to be part of the band. Together, all our voices and hearts co-create the magic of the Kirtan.

The evening will end with the sharing of some home-made prasadam, a sweet treat that has imbued the blessings of our practice together (the treat is always gluten, dairy and refined sugar free).

Advance booking is recommended as this is a popular event. Please arrive by 6.30pm for a 7pm start.
