FAQs for Yvonne Henrietta

  • What should people expect from your class?

    An opportunity to reconnect to your breath through resting in deeply relaxing postures fully supported by props.

    The stillness of the Restorative practices provides the nervous system the chance to pause, recharge, to reset which increases sense of well being and can decrease stress.

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

    Either a Barrister or back in Human Resources (HR). I have always been drawn to process and policy so the legal profession was something I considered but HR was a close second. Thankful that have found the wonderful connection with yoga.

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

    Be seen and be heard, have confidence that your voice and opinion are valuable; give people feedback wherever possible, remembering to treat people as you would like to be treated.

  • What do you do outside the Studio?

    I have learnt to appreciate walking in nature during lockdown, I’m discovering more of Epping Forest and loving it! I also enjoy eating out theatre and cinema.

  • What’s your favourite asana and why?

    Supta Baddha Koṇāsana (SBK)– Reclined Cobblers Pose. This is probably the most relaxing and healing restorative posture. It opens my chest and back allowing my breath to flow freely. The tilt of pelvis I find healing and feel very held, safe and supported in the posture. I can be found in SBK for up to 40 mins with the sound of the Tamboura, an Indian string instrument, playing. Delicious!
