ABOUT LORNA FISHER YOGA
DYNAMIC FLOW YOGA
I was first introduced to yoga as a child but began seriously practicing over twenty five years ago whilst working as a London Civil Litigation and then Prison Law and Human Rights Lawyer. Yoga was the perfect tool to counterbalance the demands of a busy career in law and city living.
Deciding to take my interest in yoga further I undertook an 18 month immersive yoga teaching course with The Life Centre/Yoga Campus 2003-2005 with incredible teachers including Liz Lark, Shiva Rea, Rod Stryker and Aadil Palkhivala, all of whom continue to inspire me today.
Since then I have has been fortunate to to attend classes, workshops and retreats with Mercedes Ngoh, Jean Hall and Ari Iso_Rautio and remain firmly of the view that we all remain students of yoga.
I draw on my 18 years of teaching yoga to provide fun, creative and mindful flowing sequences which aim to strengthen the body, improve flexibility and also calm the mind. Vinyasa flow are in essence a moving meditation ( shifting our physical bodies, energy and awareness) but time is also spent exploring poses, offering modifications and refinements so proper alignment is learnt.
My intention is to help you fully engage with your breath, explore bandhas and mudras and ultimately feel relaxed and centred. I am well practised in teaching yoga as part of workplace wellness to alleviate stress and issues arising from sitting for long periods.
With a red belt in Tae Kwon Do and a keen runner I believe that yoga is the perfect compliment to a variety of sports ( and taught yoga classes at Nuffield Health and Wellbeing gyms for over 10 years) and really is for everyone and for all bodies.
I remain passionate about supporting students from kids to adults and from beginners to advanced through their yoga practice in a safe and caring environment.
I live in London with my family and dog and when not teaching or practicing yoga I can be found running or indulging in my passions for dance and the arts.
