Enjoy yourself, on your yoga mat, and in your life...
Hello, I'm Vidyadasa.I enjoy teaching Yoga and mindfulness based practices which create a deeper sense of body and mind, they can bring clarity of feeling, perception and awareness into your life.
The practice we do on our yoga mats can have a significant effect in the rest of our lives.
I have taught regular yoga classes, workshops and retreats in the UK and internationally since 2006. I began practicing as a teenager whilst stressed out with exams and needed to find some peace...thankfully I found inspiring yoga and meditation practices, which I love sharing.
I trained as an Embodied Yoga Principles (now known as Embodied Toolkit) teacher with Mark Walsh, and was by his side as he developed the system into the incredible system it is today. I teach on EYP Teacher Trainings, in person, and helped develop the online teacher training
I work with groups and individuals to help embody new ways of being.
I am also a web designer, and an author of a book for dads: Mindful Thoughts for Fathers.

Vidyadasa’s Yoga & Meditation classes on Fridays generally start with a short bodyscan awareness practice, followed by a sequence of simple yoga postures. He actively encourages participants to do just what they feel able to do - to modify the postures to suit how they and their bodies are feeling that day.
Please note classes are 10am - 11.30am UK time please check your timezone if joining from other timezones.
You may LOVE these classes if you
You may NEED these classes if you
Please note: These classes can go quite deep in terms of creating deeper awareness of body-mind which can reveal underlying patterns, which can be mentally and emotionally intense, so these may not be suitable for you if currently feeling vulnerable.
Whilst I love kids, and pregnant women, and people with active mental health issues, these classes are not suitable for the aforementioned, sorry! I may be able to recommend you towards suitable teachers if you email me.
