Yoga with Cara Bowen


Yoga is the settling of the mind into silence

Patanjali's Yoga Sutras (trans. Alistair Shearer)

My teaching is inspired by the much-needed calm and clarity that I find in my yoga and meditation practice.

I am a British Wheel of Yoga qualified teacher and have been teaching since 2001. I teach weekly classes, workshops and courses in Brighton, as well as on courses and retreats in London and Scotland.

My approach to yoga is based on the teachings of Vanda Scaravelli, and I have worked for many years with teachers including Peter Blackaby, Chloe Fremantle and Dominique Moorsom. My teaching has also been inspired by TKV Desikachar and teachers working in his tradition, in particular Sarah Ryan.

I teach asana (yoga postures) with an awareness of the breath and the support of the ground, enabling the release of tension and increased freedom of movement. I also enjoy using pranayama (breathing exercises), mudra (hand gestures) and mantra (sound) to help bring steadiness and quiet to the mind.
