Cofounder & Managing director
Abby is nomadic, living somewhere between her yoga mat and her journal. Some years ago she packed up her life in London, leaving behind a career in Human Rights, to follow a dream of exploring the world, teaching yoga and writing poetry. She teaches a self-adapted version of Hatha Yoga, inspired by Hridaya, Sivananda, Iyengar and Agama traditions. With a balance between movement and stillness she guides her students through a sequence activating each chakra in turn. This allows for deeper exploration of these subtle energy wheels and encourages purification and healing to occur on many levels. With a focus on bringing kundalini energy to rest in the heart each practice finishes at Anahata (the heart) chakra.

In 2017, she moved to Spain to embark on a 3 month Intensive Self Practice Exploration at Suryalila Yoga Retreat Centre with Frog Lotus International Yoga Teachers. She then travelled to where it all started, India, to complete her 200 hour Ashtanga and Vinyasa Flow Yoga Teacher Training at Sampoorna Yoga, Goa.
