I have been teaching yoga now for a little over 3 years, after completing my life changing training in Costa Rica in Vinyasa Yoga November 2016. Since then I have trained in over 200 further hours of vinyasa, yin and dynamic yoga with world class, renowned teachers such as Norman Blair and Godfrey Devereux. I have been teaching in various studios around Surrey and London including Frame, the Sky Garden, in various corporate companies including London Stock Exchange group and of course private clients.
Yoga has been so incredibly beneficial for me in many different ways: physically, mentally, emotionally, energetically. It is now my mission to share these benefits with as many people as I can.
If you are new to yoga then please don’t let anything put you off! I started as someone who was SO tight and inflexible, SO far away from being able to touch my toes, I had no clue what half the positions were in class and found downward facing dog excruciating. To be completely honest I really, really struggled with yoga and couldn’t feel the benefits of it.
But, as with anything in life, after much practice, patience and persistence I’ve come to experience just how amazing the beautiful practice of yoga is for our bodies but more importantly our minds.
My yoga practice allows me to come back to my breath, the simple inhale and exhale. In that breath I am able to come back to the present moment, and forget about anything in the past or the future. And it is in this present moment I am able to come back to my core, my essence. I am able to feel my body on such a deep level. This cultivation of presence allows me to feel grounded and more connected.
If you would like to come and practice with me, please see my schedule below:
10.30 – 11.30 am | Soft Vinyasa Flow | Thames Ditton Lawn Tennis Club
7.30 – 8.30 pm | Weekly Vinyasa Flow | Long Ditton Village Hall
8.30 – 9.30 am | Soft Vinyasa Flow | Long Ditton Village Hall
6.00 – 7.00 pm |Yin Yoga | Long Ditton Village Hall
Vinyasa Yoga: This is a flow based yoga class where we run through a series of yoga poses to build strength and flexibility, focusing on body breath synchronisation.
Yin Yoga: This is a very soft, relaxing yoga class where we hold very few positions for long periods of time (up to 5 minutes). By doing this we’re accessing the deep connective tissues to improve flexibility. The stillness also forces you to focus on your breath.
£13 drop in for flow classes
£50 for 5 class pass
£100 for 10 class pass
£15 drop in for yin classes
Contact me if you would like to book in for one-one’s where I create an incredibly deep and intimate experience for you to explore your yoga practice on a much deeper level, including Thai Yoga Massage.
“Yoga with Grace was the constant; each class left me feeling grounded, strong and calm. She goes beyond the flow, my strength and flexibility.” Beth, 27.
“If I was writing a letter to my younger 20 something self I would say ‘practice yoga with Gracie now’ and this is why……I haven’t yet met a teacher as good as Grace, every city should have a Grace. I am not alone in thinking this as her classes are full of all ages and experience levels.” Sam, 53.
“Grace has introduced me to a whole new world. I never thought I would say this but I am a yoga addict!” Bella, 37.
Grace is calm, patient, kind and lovely to spend time with. She builds my confidence, encourages me and challenges me in all ways that by the end of the practice leaves me feeling a better version of me.” Mark, 45.
“Grace’s experience and mastery of her craft are immediately evident in the way she teaches our after-work classes. She creates such a relaxing and special atmosphere and her genuine commitment to helping us progress and relax is inspiring.” Anne Scott PR Agency.
“Gracie has an extraordinary knowledge & unique blend of movement during a yoga practice & a deep spiritual, mindful connection that elevates working with her to another level.
Through movement, breath, physical release and intention setting and her intuitive guidance Gracie created a totally safe & unique experience leaving body and mind & consciousness in perfect harmony.” Annalie Casa, founder of Incasa Consulting Ltd.
