Eleonora is a Senior Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance Professionals UK
and an accredited Yoga Teacher Training director – developing and running 200-hour YTT in both London and Stockholm. Eleonora is also dedicated to integrating yoga into communities beyond the walls of studios. She has directed and collaborated on projects with London Contemporary Dance School; The Big Creative Academy; Solace Women’s Aid and the Swedish Prison and Probation Service to name a few.
Hatha in foundation, her classes are slow-paced and incorporate the depth and breadth of technical and anatomical training, with attention on the breath being a vehicle whereby students are encouraged towards a steady focus on the internal experiences that unfold throughout the practice. Through her BA (Hons) in Contemporary Dance from the London Contemporary Dance School, she brings creativity and understanding of movement to her classes. This creativity, and a discipline in precision of detail, informs the personal development and self-inquiry work that is woven into her teaching. This preceded a Masters from the Institute of Education University College of London (UCL), where she gained extensive knowledge on non-authoritarian teaching and autonomous learning methods which has informed her teaching practice in how to hold space for students with focused compassion, she is especially passionate about the teachings and theories of Vygotsky and Rogers and their emphasis on student centred learning.
Eleonora continues this depth of study through a recently commenced PhD at The Department of Education, Society and Practice at the Institute of Education UCL, where she hopes to bridge the gap between academia and non-academic environments and approaches with the aim to make yoga more accessible. Her doctoral research will focus on how yoga and dance influence the well-being of women in Swedish prisons.
Talitha is a hatha yoga teacher who explores and celebrates interconnectivity in all things, in a large part inspired by her childhood in the diverse nature and culture of South Africa. This instinctively delivered her to the path of yoga and spiritual healing to which she now deeply commitment. Her style draws from a variety experiences and teachings having travelled and practised extensively, and she is especially passionate in the creativity and abundance of vibrational healing – be it sound, essential oils, singing, movement or human connection.
