ABOUT THE TEACHER

Yoga has always been a part of Siouxzy’s life. She watched her mum practice when she was a toddler, learnt about meditation in books as a teenager, and attended her first posture based yoga class in her early 20’s.

Stressed out in a busy office job, constantly ‘on edge’, and unable to relax, she began to practically explore meditation, as a way of finding peace. This became the beginning of her yogic path and led her to discover the other disciplines of yoga, including asana (postures), pranayama (breathing) and the niyamas and yamas (ethics and principles).

Through pregnancy, injury, back pain and stress, yoga helped Siouxzy find the balance, strength and support she needed. Due to her own journey, she is empathetic to many conditions and illnesses and can provide modifications for those who may require them.

Siouxzy felt passionate about sharing what yoga has to offer with others and therefore decided to start a 200 hours Teacher Training Diploma at Yogacampus, London and qualified in 2021. Her approach is to help you find a safe and accessible way to practice, in a peaceful and friendly environment, where you feel looked after.
