Evangeline teaches Sivananda based yoga in Monmouth 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.

“I am so pleased I was introduced to yoga classes with Evangeline. She is always encouraging and keen to show us what our bodies are capable of! I am happy with how I feel at the end of each class, relaxed but pleased with the effort I have made to push myself a little further each time. I will one day get to do a head stand!!
I would thoroughly recommend anyone who is considering yoga to learn from one of the best, and Evangeline definitely the best!”

“Evangeline is a very gentle and intuitive yoga teacher. I did a lovely private yoga class with my mum in Evangeline’s cabin in Monmouth 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.”
“I was lucky enough to be with Evangeline for a few days in September. She gave me some yoga classes every morning. I totally loved her guidance & her voice. She allowed me to really get into my body to create spaciousness. I felt very relaxed and energised afterwards. I had some tummy issues too, so she gave me a belly massage. It was wonderful, firm and soft. The perfect strokes to get my belly back into working order. I highly recommend Evangeline for yoga and massages” ❤️
I’ve just got home from a yoga session with Evangeline and I feel the best that I have in years. I suffer from anxiety and depression and the breathing and relaxation techniques that Evangeline showed me how to do have had more effect than any medication I’ve tried. I would recommend it to anyone . Thank you so much Evangeline I will definitely be back xx
