OUR CLASSES: MEET THE TEAM

ADULT CLASSES

SOPHIE YOGA LONDON

I started my yoga journey five years ago, whilst working in healthcare marketing and communications in London. At the end of my first yoga class, I felt at peace and a sense that I'd returned 'home'. I quickly fell in love with how yoga made me feel lighter in both body and mind, whilst at the same time stronger and more grounded. Since then I have continued to be amazed by the power and healing effects of yoga, and ultimately, how the practice can open our hearts, returning us to a feeling of loving-kindness and compassion to all.

Claire Wilkinson YOGA

I have been practicing yoga, reiki and meditation since 2000 in the UK,  Thailand & India.  I am a qualified yoga teacher using many styles of yoga.  I mainly use Vinyasa Flow in my classes as I enjoy the freedom and fluidity of moves between mind body and breath.  Since practicing yoga and meditation on a regular basis I have found an inner peace and contentment deep within myself.

I run classes in Kensingston and alsooffer one to one classes in your home or workplace.  My style is personal and friendly. 

I trained as a reiki healer completing Levels 1, 2 and Masters starting in 2000. 

I regularly attend workshops and retreats in the UK and around the world to learn from masters, revitalise my inner self and maintain completeness.

Clementine Francklin

With a background as a nurse across a number of disciplines, I initially took up yoga at university to relax and increase my strength and flexibility. Now teaching yoga professionally I am even more passionate about how yoga benefits your mind and body. My interest in human anatomy, agility and breath are central to my classes. The vinyasa I teach is dynamic and relaxing in equal measure, working your body and your sense of flow.

PILATES BY Helena

Helena is an very encouraging, patient and enthusiastic Pilates teacher who is passionate about what she does. She is also a Back4Good Lower Back Pain specialist, qualified with Body Control Pilates.

She likes to make her classes fun, varied, dynamic and (at intermediate level) challenging. They are based on a functional and contemporary approach to Pilates. This she combines with more traditional Pilates exercises, to counteract the effect of our largely sedentary lifestyles. 

She is very focused on correct and effective technique by consistently providing clients feedback and corrections if needed. This ensures they are using the correct muscles and not putting any unnecessary strain on their joints. 

Her Pilates classes are small, friendly and personal (10 people max). This means that she can focus on quality rather than quantity and give everyone the attention they deserve. She can therefore deliver a more personalised service than in a larger class. Her classes are tailored to coincide with her clients’ overall level of fitness, Pilates experience and goals as well as the ongoing feedback she encourages.

Let her know what goals you would like to set yourself before you start classes with her and she will support you in making those goals a reality (although change won’t happen overnight!).

Her classes are in high demand and fill up very fast, so advance booking is required. To find out more:

Once upon a yogamat

My name is Milena and I teach simple, inclusive and accessible yoga to adults and children.

I strongly believe that one is never too young or too old to practice Yoga. Regardless of age we all need a good heart, a disciplined mind and a healthy body.

Childhood is a great place to start the Yoga journey. Children beam with natural curiosity and enthusiasm, they are open minded, imaginative and less inhibited.

In times when most of children's activities are supported by toys and electronic devises, in our Yoga-telling classes we will use our bodies, breath, imagination and much loved stories to learn, play and relax.

Once Upon a Yoga Mat sessions provide a calm and welcoming space and include Yoga postures, movements, games, poems and rhymes, storytelling, simple breath awareness, mindfulness and relaxation practices.

Once Upon a Yoga Mat sessions at the Corner House are run in partnership with Storystock (http://www.storystock.co.uk/).

I am British Wheel of Yoga teacher, fully CRB checked and trained in first aid.
