Sevda Mustafa has been studying yoga for over 20 years. Her main influences being Iyengar, Hatha and Astanga.
She has been taught by many amazing teachers including Godfrey Devereux, Zoe Knott, Bob Insley and Marteen Varmaase, which has influenced her teaching deeply.
Sevda has been teaching in London for many years and now specialises in teaching on retreats around the world. She teaches in India, Turkey, Crete, Egypt and throughout the UK
Sevda teaches with an open heart encouraging students in their practice. She works with strength in the asanas or postures and then goes deeper into the body using breath awareness.
She believes in making the body strong so we can go inwards to find the true self by working through our blockages, which can manifest in stiffness within the body.
Sevda is very respectful of each student’s individual needs within their yoga practice. Both beginners and advanced students wishing to deepen their practice will be welcome.
The morning class will be dynamic and energising, to build on stamina, but also to create space in the body using breath awareness. Sevda will teach Vinyasa flowing sequences to link the body, breath and mind, allowing the body to move more fluidly between postures, which will be held to allow each student time to integrate and understand them.
Evening classes will be less energetic working on restorative yoga with deep relaxation.
