London and Bristol based Pip splits her time between the two cities offering classes and privates in both places.
A naturally energetic person, yoga has proven to be a way for Pip to centre through movement, to a calm stillness. A much needed skill in twenty first century life. Science has always been of great interest: this led to a biology degree, the anatomy & physiology and biomechanics being of choice. This is reflected in her teaching.
Pip holds the British Wheel of Yoga Diploma 500hr course certificate in addition to being a certified strala guide having completed another 200 hours of training with Tara Stiles and Mike Taylor of StralaNYC as well as yin yoga training with Norman Blair from Indaba, London.
Classes are a hatha vinyasa style, fluid and grounding, moving with the breath. Natural movement guides the body, no force, just flow. Practice is about how it feels inside not the external shapes we make. Inhale to lift, expand and open, and exhale to move you further into the experience.
The exploration of meditation has been generous in her personal practice; it’s widened the gap to think before reacting, and actions are in line with bigger goals in terms of health, relationships and work. Aspects of this tend to be shared in easily digestible chunks at the end of physical asana. Meditation is so simple as a concept, all we need to do is practice regularly.
A runner (half marathons and a full) , with a decent monthly mileage means sharing yoga with other athletes comes from a place of knowledge and understanding, assisting competitive people find their non competitive side is a beautiful challenge.
