Nirmala Iyer

I started my Yoga Journey a little over a decade ago and after 4 years of practicing as a student, I wanted to deepen my understanding of Yoga as a therapeutic way of life, egged on by the lower back pain that a few family members (across age groups) were dealing with! I completed my International Yoga Teachers Training Certificate under my Yoga Guru, Pundit Radheshyam Mishra from Yoga Life Global India. In parallel I also got introduced to scriptural study, pursuing the study of the Bhagavad Gita under a qualified Guru (teacher). My teaching journey commenced in 2014 at the Yoga Bharati, San Jose CA. I pursued this journey once we moved to London, taking weekly classes and teaching at organized workshops; I also mentored several yoga teachers in a teacher training course that finished in October 2020. My teaching style focuses not just on body awareness, strength & flexibility, but also on coordination of breath with stretching of the physical body. I use a lot of chanting, sounds and Pranayama which induces energy & quietude. I also complement my practice with techniques for relaxation of the body & mind prescribed by the Yoga Institute, Mumbai, India. My students have often told me I have a calming voice, cheerful disposition and I make yoga accessible to everyone. I adapt my classes to suit the age group that I am teaching and I am comfortable with students aged 5 to 80 years old. My holistic yoga journey has been fulfilling, healing so many people from all walks of life and in all corners of the globe (Singapore/Australia/Mauritius/India/Europe/USA). In an effort to make this path accessible to as many people, and more so in the times of this pandemic I have taken my journey online:
