Our Teachers

When you start practicing you’ll notice that our teachers soon recognise you, know your name and support your experience at the studio. Our teachers are all different, with diverse lives, styles and backgrounds but what is consistent across the studio is that all our teachers are kind, committed and inspirational. We recommend practicing with as many teachers as possible to find the ones who have the greatest impact on your practice and your life.

Yasmine Say

Yasmine Say is a Level 3 Personal Trainer, Pilates Instructor and Mobility Coach based in West London. Yasmine’s Pilates classes are dynamic, with a strong focus on the Pilates breath (and how it can help control movement). She has a keen interest in Yoga, so you can expect some elements of Vinyasa practise in her classes to help improve flexibility and create interesting transitions. She wants her clients to leave class with a good understanding of their bodies, as well as why they work through different planes of motion and the muscles they’re using to perform those movements.

Huma Jalil

Huma grew up in Islamabad, the majestic Himalayan foothills of Pakistan and this is where as a teenager the initial seed of Yoga was planted.  At age 21 she moved to London and completed an MA in Social Anthropology at SOAS University. This passion for and interest in the mystical and messy human condition continues to nourish and inform her practise. Her classes focus on breath awareness, alignment, and the interconnected nature of matter, mind and spirit.  The methodology is multidisciplinary, intuitive but also steeped in the traditional aspects of yoga reflecting her many years of study and personal practise.  She views the science and art of Yoga as a sacred life long journey revealing to us the extraordinary and infinite within the rich, interwoven tapestry of our everyday lives and the natural world.   
Huma feels blessed to have found this path that guides us back to our hearts, heals the body and elevates our consciousness, while creating a counter balance to the stresses and distractions of modern life.
