FAQs for Ayanna Prevatt

  • What should people expect from your class?

    A strong slow vinyasa practice, combining a love of movement with healthy alignment; a safe and welcoming space in which to explore, enjoy and question the yoga tradition, challenge yourself, and develop a sense of body-mind awareness

  • If you weren’t a yoga teacher, what would you be?

    I already do those other things alongside my yoga teaching. I have been a dancer and a journalist, and I currently lead a centre for academic communication at UCL, teach politics and international relations and work as a yoga therapist. But if I wasn’t doing any of this, I might be a political economist investigating how to overhaul capitalism, and I would dance and sleep more

  • What advice would you give to your 16 year old self?

    Be brave making decisions and be kind

  • What do you do outside the Studio?

    Yoga (practising it, reading about it, attending training/workshops), dance (doing it, watching it), being with my family (including my three children) and friends (preferably with good food and wine)

  • What’s your favourite asana and why?

    Downward dog because it makes me feel grounded and alive in my body and handstands because they are so challenging
