Evangeline teaches Sivananda based yoga which places a strong emphasis on physical health and well being. As part of a school of Hatha yoga it takes inspiration from the teachings of Swami Sivananda.
It is an open-hearted joyous practice based on twelve asanas*, each practiced in sequence, punctuated by periods of complete relaxation. This makes for a calm, friendly class for everyone, including the less experienced and physically energetic.
Sivananda yoga is perfect for all ages and especially older people. The focus is primarily on breathing, spirituality and meditation.
* An ‘asana’ is a posture in which the practitioner sits.
“Yoga is a light, which once lit, will never dim. The better your practice, the brighter the flame.”
Evangeline sees yoga like music in the body that heals, balances and connects one to self, creating space to allow energy to come and go.

“Evangeline is a very gentle and intuitive yoga teacher. I did a lovely private yoga class with my mum up in Evangeline’s cabin which was great for taking our ability to the next level. I have also recently done a group yoga class in Llangarron. It was really nice to share the space with like-minded people, there was a very warm community feel to it. Evangeline seemed to gauge the ability of the class well and incorporated positions achievable for everyone. It was both challenging and relaxing at the same time.”
“Evangeline’s yoga classes are brilliant. She is warm and caring combined with being a skilled teacher. Evangeline’s huge knowledge of physiology and the human physic means her classes are holistic, stretching and fun.”
