Find enlightenment on your yoga mat at SANGYÉ YOGA SCHOOL
A well-established West London institution for spiritual warriors, Sangyé Yoga School was re-launched in early 2016, after 11 years of being known as Jivamukti Yoga London, is now the only official Jivamukti Yoga Affiliate in London. Sangyè is a Tibetan word for Buddha or ‘awakened’ and the practice is focussed on connecting with breath, body and human potential. Offering ever-changing and challenging vinyasa sequences, hands-on assists, alongside teachings to awaken the buddha nature within.
Straight talking Cat Alip-Douglas is the tattoo covered Sangyé Yoga School co-founder (with husband Phil). A former Condé Nast New York girl, Cat now lives and breathes an authentic vegan yogi lifestyle. Her varied sequences are mostly set to a contemporary soundtrack of house, uncensored hip hop and more often than not silence, while her inspiring dharma chat throughout the class reminds students of the nature of impermanence and the relativity of all phenomena, all delivered in a no nonsense and often amusing way. Taking regular workshops and retreats with Phil, Cat also runs a rigorous and respected 6 month teaching training course at the school. Great consideration is taken before an applicant is invited onto the course.
Sangyé Yoga School offers Vinaysa, Jivamukti and Yin classes, from basic to experienced level. Workshops are also regularly hosted by faculty and visiting teachers, for those wanting to delve further into their practice.
