Olga Oakenfold – Yoga Teacher
MY PERSONAL VIEW
I have been practising yoga and meditation since 1994 with a range of influences on my teaching style including Classical Hatha, Iyengar and Anusara Yoga. Ihave been practicing yoga with Michael Trower for a few years and he inspired me to become a yoga teacher and body massage therapist. I am qualified with The British Wheel of Yoga (BWY) and have been teaching yoga since 2002.
In 2005 I met John Friend in his workshop in London. Since then Anusara Yoga has opened a new passion for practice. I believe in living life to the fullest, being true to yourself and being responsible for your own health and well-being. I feel that I have been blessed with a passion for teaching and sharing my experience through the journey of yoga as an inward search of finding the very best within us – our true nature.
In my classes and workshops you will be practising postures, breathing exercises, meditation and relaxation. During lessons you will learn how to use breath and mindful alignment in the way you feel safe and supported in your practice as well as support your mental and emotional health. I teach yoga inspired by Anusara yoga alignment. Also I am a fundraiser for Cancer Research UK. I do fundraising events and teach Yoga in Gildredge Park during Summer time.

“I was able to do ALL of the movements in your class and my back felt absolutely wonderful afterwards, the best it has felt for a year or more… thank-you so much for the wonderful class, I enjoyed every moment and felt able-bodied for the first time in ages!” – Paul from London.
“Yoga has been a lifelong practice for me. Attending Olga’s classes in recent years has resulted in me, not only maintaining flexibility but gaining energy and physical strength. Olga’s calm, warm disposition and joyful, vitality-filled method of teaching, also keeps me of happy and positive mind.” – Ann from Eastbourne.
“Thanks for great workshop today. When I arrived my back was quite stiff and uncomfortable (and I thought ‘oh dear’ when you said we were doing back bends today!) but with your detailed advice and me being very careful with my alignment my back feels great now!”- Brenda from Eastbourne.
