All teachers, trainees and students of Vajrasati Yoga are trusted and encouraged to make their own honest exploration into yoga, it's practice and it's implications. Just as a mountaineer makes theirown journey up a mountain, that journey will be original and demand the highest degree of creativity. Vajrasati Yoga (VS Yoga) most often takes the form of a straightforward Modern Postural Yoga class i.e. body work.

Founder of Studio iO, A small dedicated Yoga Space in central Brighton I teach weekly classes in Hatha, Vinyasa Flow and TRX Yoga. My passion for yoga began when I was at school although I was keen topractice yoga purely for it's physical benefits to improve my sport. It was after several years of dynamic practice that I then decided to travel and explore Yoga all over the World, my first stop was India followed by Thailand, Bali and Australia.
I have always had an interest in health and fitness and began practising yoga as a teenager. My interest grew when I practised yoga regularly as a student in London where yoga helped me deal with thestress of my Degree course in Illustration (and London life!) particularly in my third year. It was when going through another stressful time in 2006 that I decided to take the plunge and train as a yoga teacher!
The oldest scriptures containing yogic thoughts and practices are many thousands of years old. The yoga tree is comprised of many branches including Mantra, Karma, Bhakti, Raja and Hatha to name but afew. The different styles of yoga familiar in the West are all forms of Hatha yoga which dates back around 1000 years. Hatha yoga practices commonly consist of asanas (postures), cleansing practices, pranayama and meditation.
Yoga came to me in two ways. A curiosity from being the child of two medics. And from growing up in competitive sport. I love sports science, But I wanted to know what can I do to make these achingmuscles feel better? What soothes them? I studied yoga, especially the vinyasa practice, during my university years alongside the BWY. Then I went the heartland India. Immersive study in Hatha Yoga.
Classes are given in an open, relaxed and safe environment providing a sanctuary from your everyday life. Most classes are a dynamic flow style of yoga (definition below) and are suitable for peopleat all levels, as modifications are given during postures. Carefully compiled playlists are used to complement the sequences. Music can help you to relax into postures, transport you from your daily routine and deepen your practice.
We will alternate strengthening and softening movements of the whole body with various postures in a relaxed tempo. We work with different variations depending on current health states. Throughconscious breathing and meditation, we release tension and return to the harmonious space of the present moment. This way we build a balanced body, mind and spirit, and a healthy relationship with ourselves. Each class is original.
I use good, safe alignment techniques and encourage students to build a life-long personal practice combined with a regular class. I always include Yoga Nidra, visualisation and chakra balancing in myclass. To find out more about me please visit the profile page. If you can't make it to one of my classes or would like a bit of extra motivation please visit Mikaela's Yoga Channel where I've posted some yoga tutorials. I hope that my art inspires you to do the same.
