  • Flavia Mendes
    • Flavia Mendes Yoga Teacher

      Flavia believes no matter what reason first brings you to practice yoga, somewhere along the way, we all come together for a purpose. As a gymnast, in her early teens, the rigorous training and flexibility required eventually took its toll resulting in many injuries and self doubt. Flavia quickly learnt that when we are kind to ourselves, body and mind, we involuntarily become kind to others and that’s when the magic happens.

      Flavia first discovered yoga in 2007 and it immediately made sense to her. More so when life was at its most challenging, she found things seemed less overwhelming and manageable when you stop, breath and take everything a step at a time – just as you would when practising yoga. From that point on yoga became an invaluable part of her life and Flavia made the decision to train as a yoga teacher. As a mother of twin boys the training proved challenging at times, but yoga has made such a positive impact on her life and that of her children she believes there is no better way of living than sharing this ancient knowledge with others.

      Flavia teaches yoga for kids, adults and families and is accredited by the Yoga Alliance and Rainbow Kids Yoga.

  • Angelika Grohmann
    • Hatha Yoga with Angelika

      My interest in Yoga started in the 70′s when I was involved in a project with Autistic children in Berlin. The children became my teachers. We gradually bonded through bodywork, music and love. Reading my first book on meditation ‘Hara’ by the philosopher and psychotherapist Graf von Dürkheim I decided to go on a journey, which became my life’s journey. I had my first meditation and yoga experience in a mud hut in India. It was a significant turning point in my life. I moved from Berlin to England, lived there for 10 years in a Buddhist community and trained as a Yoga Teacher at the Iyengar institute in London.

      I realized very soon that just the practice of yoga asanas (postures) was not enough for me. To have a deeper understanding of our lives and how the practice works, we need spiritual teachings to reflect on.

      In my early travels to India I stayed at the Ramana Maharashi Ashram in the South of India which had a profound effect on me. I spend a few times in Auroville, teaching Yoga and studying the teachings of The Mother and Sri Aurobindo. Although my practice is inspired by the ancient yoga philosophy, modern psychology and quantum physics, I feel mostly drawn to the teachings of the Buddha. My emphasis is and has always been the path of the heart, direct experience and a down to earth truthfulness.

      My deepest inspirations are the teachings of Pema Chødron, Robina Courtin, Tsultrim Alione, J.Tenzin Palmo, Jack Kornfield, Thich Nhath Hangh and the Dalai Lama.I don’t follow one particular school or teacher, because I strongly believe that the true ‘Guru’ is within our own hearts.

      The practice I teach is  a journey into the more subtle body, the body of breath, energy flow, prana, transparency, lightness and joy, using the classical hatha yoga asanas to connect with that within us, which is beautiful and in harmony, the body of light. My teachings are always changing and directly from my heart experience, often very spontaneous and unpredictable.

      I have been teaching now for 27 years. I will never stop seeking since I realized that life is about inner growth, self inquiry and a very gradual awakening to inner dimensions of life, to one’s own essential nature. Yoga is the most challenging, most revealing path we can choose, if we practice it in all it’s aspects.

  • Ben Lawley
    • Asthanga Yoga Teacher

      Ben Lawley teaches authentic Ashtanga  – an energetic yoga tradition. The late Shri K. Pattabhi Jois developed Ashtanga as a therapeutic self-development system, teaching athletes and many hospital patients. His daughter and grandson continue in the Mysore shala.

      In 1993 Ben studied meditation in Nepal and embarked on a search for a spiritual practice. He was first introduced to Ashtanga yoga in 2005 and realised he had found something profoundly powerful. He visits Sharath (the grandson of Pattabhi Jois), for study in Mysore.

      As an Ayurvedic Practitioner and Ellis Snitcher Ayurvedic prize winning scholar with Ayurveda MSc, Ben’s background in therapeutic bodywork and healing informs his approach to teaching.

      Wednesday Nights – All levels Ashtanga – 7.45pm


      Ben Lawley teaches authentic Ashtanga as practiced in Mysore. Though a physically demanding, energetic yoga tradition, it is adjusted for any student’s ability: All welcome – complete beginner or experienced students.
Ashtanga features flowing movements (vinyasa) between postures, giving you great cardio-vascular workouts while releasing muscular tension, expelling toxins, building flexibility and unblocking energy.

      Ashtanga is unique in using bandha (muscular engagement), drishti (focus point), and pranayama (breath control) alongside postures. With verbal instructions and physical adjustments you will learn this powerful self-development system, whether you seek therapy, or progression to the next evolutionary stage.

      Fun on Fridays! – All levels Ashtanga – with time to develop further 
Friday nights are special!

      Ever wonder what postures follow those we usually do in class?
On Fridays you can discover more in a special all-level class. Starting with the familiar first half of Ashtanga primary series, we progress to a little experimentation with novel postures! With guidance and support, you learn to work with postures like bhuja pidasana, kurmasana and bakasana. Whether experienced or beginner – everyone can advance their practice in this special class.

      Get your weekend off to an intense flying start: early class, so still time to go out afterwards!

  • Nathalie Mukusheva
    • Dynamic Yoga with Nathalie

      Nathalie Mukusheva received her certification from Dharma Mittra after studies of Dharma Yoga in New York. She studied Dynamic Yoga in London under Olof Kuijt and continues her studies with Mark Kan attending a weekly Master Class as well as her daily practise. Her teaching is influenced by the endless transformative nature of yoga, the grace and technical precision of Classical Ballet, the freedom of alignment and correct technique and the movement of energy. Having had extensive training in many forms of movement including Contortion training and Acro for Dancers she is honoured to share everything she has learnt with all her students whetever their level of experience.

      My Dynamic classes are rooted in the classsical yoga traditon but with a contemporary feel. Once warmed up with Surya Namaskara incorporating lunges to warm up the hip flexors and shoulder girdle you will be led through a flowing dynamic sequence set to music. Creative sequencing ensures that each class is different. Emphasis is on correct placement and the importance of developing and maintaining the integrity of a strong core and pelvis so that all other elements of the practise can radiate out.

  • Sarah Scharf
    • Yoga with Sarah Scharf

      Sarah Scharf began teaching yoga in 2004 after completing her teacher-training course with Ana Forrest in Santa Monica, California. She has gone on to teach group classes and private clients in Santa Barbara, Big Sur, San Francisco, and London. Her practice is influenced by her exposure to leading teachers and her time as an Extended Student at Esalen Institute. Her teaching is inspired by the various styles of yoga (acro-yoga, anusara, hatha, and restorative) and movement (Alexander technique, Feldenkrais Method, Body-Mind Centering, Pilates, Authentic Movement) she has studied. A certified massage therapist, her knowledge of bodywork and anatomy roots her classes with practical safety and hands on adjustments. Sarah holds an MFA in Devised Theatre, and currently works around the city teaching yoga, practicing massage, performing and directing.

      Post-natal yoga provides opportunities to connect with other women at similar stages of the postpartum experience, a powerful antidote to the isolation that often accompanies early parenting. This specially designed yoga practice helps you reclaim your post-pregnancy body. Starting gently to ease you into practice, the class is appropriate for women new to yoga, or yoginis looking to find a smart way back to a full practice. The poses will emphasize abdominal toning, pelvic floor and back strengthening.  We will spend time releasing stress from the neck, shoulder, and upper back area. These areas often become tense from nursing, and carrying both baby and supplies. A restorative pose and guided relaxation will complete the sequence, leaving you calm and restored before returning to your baby.

      Restorative Yoga and Gentle Movement Workshop
      For these afternoons I sequence restorative yoga poses with an introduction to Alexander Technique, Feldenkrais, Buddhist meditation and other sensory awareness practices. Restorative yoga  is a therapeutic style that uses props (bolsters, pillows, blankets, like naptime used to be!) to support the body, encouraging deep relaxation. By using passive yoga asanas we let our nervous systems shift and enjoy the benefit of rest. Different from active styles, we will concentrate on surrendering our weight to supports and softening into the stretches. This helps us to relieve the effects of negative stress encountered in daily life, and can be highly beneficial in times of fatigue, illness, and emotional strain. Our focus will be to calm and nurture ourselves on all levels during the class.

  • Susan Bysh
    • Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga

      Susan was introduced to yoga in the late 1970s in Canada, accompanying her mother to hatha yoga classes, and she maintained a home practice off and on over the next twenty years.

She has since completed the Primary and Intermediate series, and is working through the Advanced A series with her teachers Hamish Hendry in London and R Sharath Jois in Mysore, India.
      In 2011 Susan began making regular trips to Mysore to study with Sharath at the Krishna Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute (KPJAYI), and in 2014 she received Level 2 Authorisation, allowing her to teach the full Primary and Intermediate series.
      So come say Hi to Susan, who has been a long time & much loved teacher at Yoga Place and begin your Mysore practice with her this October.
      Susan will also continue to teach her hugely popular Saturday Ashtanga Classes at 10.30am and noon. She will also be adding in workshops based around specific principles of the Ashtanga Practice (such as back bends) and running regular Beginners Mysore Week.
