ABOUT ME

Namaste and greetings to you!  I am a 200-hour certified Yoga instructor living and teaching in Bristol. I completed my Yoga Teacher Training in the Indian Himalayan mountains in June 2014 with the excellent Trimurti Yoga School, and then made the move to Bristol in September 2014. I love living in this city, it is so vibrant and community minded, and has a thriving yoga scene with teachers and styles to suit every taste.

I have been practicing yoga daily since taking my first class in India in 2008 – I cannot imagine my life without yoga and this amazing practice has helped me to cope much better with the pressures of modern life whilst guiding me towards inner happiness and contentment. 

I now find myself in the wonderful position of being able to share this practice with others and feel very blessed to be able to do so. I am on a great journey and there is much to learn – the great Yoga teacher BKS Iyengar once said that he had been teaching yoga for over 60 years and each time he stepped on to his yoga mat he felt like he learnt something new – the subject is vast and I want to become the best teacher I can, so as to try to help and inspire my students to gain the many benefits that yoga has to offer. 

‘Yoga is a journey, never push too hard or over strain, be cautious, listen to your body and don’t forget to breathe!’ – Anmol Mehta

STYLES

Hatha Flow Yoga

In this class we practice yoga postures (asana's) linking them together with the breath and holding each asana for 3-5 breaths, before moving on (hence the flow). In every class there are new postures to learn and exploration using meditation, guided relaxation and visualisation to deepen the practice.

Uplifting Morning Yoga

This fun and energising morning class at Kambe House gets us very much in the mood for the day ahead…there is nothing quite as effective as a morning yoga practice as you carry the positive effects with you for the rest of your day. This class has lots of warm up, yoga poses, breathing and sun salutations, and is accompanied by an uplifting soundtrack.

Yoga for Stress Relief

Stress is rampant in modern society and there is no better tonic than yoga to help us to release the pressure. This class focuses on using meditation, breathing exercises and relaxation to help us to find an inner calm – yoga postures are held for longer (30 seconds to 2 minutes) and there is a tranquil soundtrack to guide us in our journey.

Hatha (Beginner Friendly)

This class at Breathe Bristol is suitable for complete beginners, those coming back to yoga, and those with more experience. We will look at all manner of postures from forward bends to balances, how to breathe correctly in yoga, and you will gain the confidence you need to go to any yoga class and/or to start a home practice. There are plenty of options provided so that all levels are catered for.
