Teacher:

Joe Sharp

Teaching style

My Vinyasa classes focus on syncing breath with movement. I encourage students to observe thoughts, examine ingrained patterns of behaviour and consciously move towards a state of heightened awareness; with less worry, anxiety, and endless hopes and fears.

After a warm up of surya namaskar (sun salutations), a varied sequence of standing posters, forward folds, twists, back bends and inversions is performed, before relaxation and sometimes meditation.

I use hands on assists and some music. Classes have a fun and friendly atmosphere and are physically challenging but open to all levels with variations offered.

Biography

I’m still working through the tight hips I built up from teenage years competing as a skier, time in the gym training and working as a PT and more recently many hours spent cycling on the road!

I first tried Hatha Yoga in 2008 before beginning a (fairly loose) Vinyasa home practice in 2014. Yoga has been hugely beneficial for me. I immediately noticed how it helped in developing a calm mind and strong, flexible and healthy body. I want to help people realise these benefits with my supportive and fun teaching.

I have completed a 200hr vinyasa teacher training at Sangyé Yoga School in London with Cat Alip-Douglas and she remains my main teacher.
