After lunch you will be free to explore the gardens or the countryside, or just to chill out. Our afternoon class will be from 5.00 to 7.00 pm, and will introduce more pranayama and meditation techniques. Saturday dinner will be at 7.30 pm. Sunday morning’s class will be from 10.00 am to 12.30 pm, and will again incorporate asana, pranayama and meditation. Lunch will follow with farewell.

Practitioner: Margherita Del Pra

My teachings are grounded in the traditional lineage of Hatha yoga and the deep philosophy of Tantric practices married with the movement of Vinyasa Flow, the precision of Anusara, the dance of Rasa Yoga – one of the most heartfelt synthesis of yoga, and the energetics of ParaYoga. I honor the traditions while awakening the true potential as an individual in the modern world. I hope for each student to experience a journey that goes beyond the body and pierces deeply into the heart by weaving together asana, mantra, mudra, pranayama, meditation and chanting, along with shadow work, ritual, and a deep connection with nature..

My self-practice and dedication to the yogic path has also allowed me to merge the wisdom and healing power of Ayurveda – the Science of Life – into a modern language that everyone can access. I am passionate about the benefits for all and believe the rituals within the physical practice of yoga and the modern approach to Ayurveda can be embodied within our daily routines to regain our natural state of health and well-being effortlessly – empowering and equipping you with the means to engage courageously and skillfully in all aspects to live a more vibrant life.

In addition to being one of the senior teachers at The Life Centre, I teach privately at my home studio in North London and collectively at Friends meeting house in Muswell Hill. I also served as a mentor and teacher trainer for Yogacampus since 2008, completed advanced teacher training in Rasa Yoga and continue to be guided and inspired by Sianna Sherman in her studies and teaching.

I have also studied with ParaYoga founder Yogarupa Rod Stryker since 2003. I am fully insured, registered E-RYT 500 with Yoga Alliance US and registered Senior Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance UK.
