About Me

Welcome to South West London Yoga, based in Wimbledon Village. My name is Serena. I am a Qualified Yoga Teacher RYT 500, and certified by the British Wheel of Yoga and Yoga Alliance. In addition, I am a Certified Pregnancy Yoga Teacher, having trained with the Sitaram Partnership, as well as a Birthlight Certified pregnancy, postnatal  and baby yoga teacher. I am also a Qualified Children's Yoga Instructor and have been trained to teach Yoga for the Special Child, which enhances the natural development of infants and children with special needs.

I have been teaching yoga since 2008 and practicing since 1997. I came to yoga whilst pregnant with my second daughter and my love for it has grown ever since. As a mother of two children, I have first-hand experience of how yoga can help in the transition to motherhood and I have witnessed the benefits for children of all ages.

My teaching style is focussed on breath awareness and alignment in each posture, with some Vinyasa Flow sequences incorporated in my classes. This method of teaching will help you to gain strength, flexibility, release stress and find a general sense of wellbeing. I teach private classes and small groups in my candlelit Wimbledon Village studio. This setting allows for individual, hands-on teaching. All my classes have a strong focus on movement with the breath, and meditation is part of the entire practice.

I hold the British Wheel of Yoga Accredited Teaching Diploma, having completed a teacher training course with Triyoga, London's leading yoga studio, studying under the guidance of Susannah Hoffman and Jeff Phenix. My yoga and meditation have many influences and I have practised with and been taught by some wonderful teachers, including Shiva Rea, Max Strom, Claire Missingham, Angus Ford-Robertson, Carlos Pomeda, and Anna Ashby.

In addition to my training in London, I have practiced and studied yoga in India, the spiritual home of yoga, where I trained to teach Vinyasa Flow Yoga with Frog Lotus Yoga, under the guidance of Vidya Jacqueline Heisel and Jennifer Yarro. Vidya is an inspiring teacher with 35 years of Yoga teaching experience, and a profound knowledge of Yogic philosophy and meditation. Jennifer has devoted much of her life to the study and practice of yoga, health and healing, and I was lucky enough, as one of her students, to have her impart her extensive knowledge of anatomy to me.
