Julie de Senneville

Julie De Seneville
Julie is passionate about yoga and has taught and practiced for over 20 years. After working with many different styles of Yoga, Julie retrained in the Iyengar Yoga system and qualified as an Iyengar Yoga Teacher in 2016. Julie is currently training
Julie’s classes are friendly and informative. Julie approaches each posture with clear teaching techniques to assist students to understand and explore their own range of movement. With practice students start to regain space and flexibility to areas that have been historically stiff and tight, while building up strength in areas that have been weak.
As the physical body transforms the inner journey begins with a corresponding agility and clarity of the mind-body connection.
Julie works with props to adapt the postures to suit students of varying abilities so that each student can work to their maximum potential.

Freddie is a British Wheel of Yoga (BWY Dip) teacher and student of Tara Fraser. She has been practising different styles of Hatha Yoga since 2000 mainly with tutors inspired by the teachings of Krishnamacharya and his son TKV Desikachar in particular. Her classes focus on flowing sequences of poses with attention to the coordination of breath and movement, proper body alignment and anatomical understanding, but do not follow one strict method or routine of postures rather invite mindfulness and quality of awareness throughout. Having experienced the transformational power of yoga, she is committed to sharing the benefits of this ancient art with passion and enthusiasm while consistently looking for ways to improve herself as a practitioner and teacher. She believes that a regular practice improves health and can increase self-awareness, thus deepening knowledge of our true nature for a more balanced and positive outlook on life.
