My approach to teaching yoga ...
I feel passionate about sharing yoga with others and truly believe yoga is for every body which is why I strive to make my classes accessible and welcoming to all.
I feel strongly about the healing power of yoga and have personally experienced the transformative effect that a regular yoga practice can have on one's life.
I came to yoga as a way of dealing with the stress of my busy job as a human rights lawyer. Although yoga was undoubtedly a valuable physical practice for me and that time (and it certainly helped me undo some of the damage caused by sitting at a desk all hours of the day) it was the marked impact it had on my mood and stress levels that kept me coming back. This experience has guided my teaching and I'm careful to try and balance the physical and non-physical aspects of yoga in my classes.

Hatha Yoga @ Our Parks
May 2017 - May 2019
I taught outdoor, mixed-level classes during the summer months (April - October). Many of the students at these classes were completely new to yoga. I taught once a week in Wapping, as well as covering classes in parks throughout East London.
Hatha & Yin @ Banteay Srey Project, Cambodia

500hr Yoga Teacher Training @ Yoga London
December 2018 - Ongoing
I recently decided to undertake my 500hrs qualification in order to further advance my knowledge and skills. I am enrolled in the 500hr course at Yoga London, which teaches in the Ashtanga Vinyasa style. As well as the core units in anatomy, philosophy, and asana, I am completing a number of smaller courses covering a range of topics, such as yoga for sports and inclusive sequencing.

200hr Yoga Teacher Training @ Shiva Shakti Yoga, India
May 2016- June 2016
This intensive residential course was based on traditional hatha yoga. The course covered anatomy, Hatha asana,philosophy, meditation and the Shat Kriyas.
I enjoy creating interesting and challenging flows that gradually build in intensity and complexity.
My original 200hr training was in Hatha yoga and I have taught this style regularly.
I find that Yin is the ideal antidote to our busy Western lives, and I enjoy the different, yet still challenging, nature of a practice that involves a lot of stillness.
Aerial is an exciting and playful take on yoga and, despite appearances, is actually a very accessible style for beginners and advanced practitioners alike.
Yoga for Sports
Yoga is an excellent accompaniment to all other sporting activities.
I came to Eloise to practice yoga to manage my stress, become more confident, and work on my concentration. My yoga sessions with Eloise have 100% helped me reach my goals and I am definitely less stressed! I have learned new postures, including being able to do some sun salutations by myself, and I have a much better understanding of my body. I definitely recommend Eloise for people who want to de-stress and have a lack of self-confidence.
Louise G.Private Yoga Client @ One Complete Life
I started 1-2-1 yoga lessons with Eloise because I wanted to learn yoga on an individual level and I also wanted to improve my flexibility. The whole experience has been really positive; Eloise is encouraging and motivating and I would recommend her yoga services to others.
