I used to teach yoga classes in Willen pavilion and Old Bath House Wolverton, Milton Keynes and in Hardengstone Village Hall, Northampton till lock down in March 2020. At the moment I have resumedwith Willen Outdoor Intermediate Yoga Class for intermediate level and Willen Yoga for Beginners Class for people with little or no experince of yoga. Both classes need to book: Please use the link: https://www.joyyogatherapy.co.uk/ I hope to get back with other classes in 2021 if the virus goes or stops being a threat to human well being.
The Willen Intermediate Yoga Class represents an opportunity for practitioners of all levels to experience an alignment-based, dynamic practice that cultivates greater stamina, strength and flexibility.
These classes are brilliant - very friendly and supportive. Elena is a wonderful teacher who has managed to coax my unfit body into positions I never thought possible! The sense of well being after a class means it's great for both body and mind. Give it a try - you won't regret it!

I saw her once a week and never failed to feel challenged, exhilarated, inspired and relaxed. She is an excellent teacher with a detailed understanding of all the Astanga yoga positions bothstructurally and on an energetic level, from the "inside". She taught me how to feel my own way into the postures with focus, precision and discipline - but no matter how much I learned, she always had more to teach me.
I was born and spent most of my childhood in Hong Kong and began to teach yoga in London in 2002, so I have 12 years' teaching experience having worked in London gyms and yoga centres as well as alotof private and corporate work. I have spent time studying Iyengar and Sivananda yoga but was soon drawn towards the challenges and dynamism of Ashtanga yoga, which is now my dedicated practice. Under the guidance of Hamish Hendry at Ashtanga Yoga London, I have deepened my understanding of yoga.
Our yoga adheres completely to the principles of alignment and is biomechanically sound. It takes us towards health and not away from it - people are unfortunately too good at hurting themselves! Welearn to move the spine: in extension, flexion, rotation and in side bending; all in an integrated way. We start to free up the respiratory system, i.e. once we are grounded and relaxed we can breathe better. So in consequence we begin to really notice how we feel in our bodies.
Face Yoga is a series of facial exercises designed to tone, lift and rejuvenate skin and muscle. The method I teach integrates facial exercise, face massage, acupressure, relaxation and wellbeing. Itcombines ancient theories with a modern approach to look and feel the best we can at any age. We may be unable to reverse time but we can always improve what we have from today onwards.
