Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Maidenhead

Nelumbo Yoga



Joelle has always been fascinated by the relationship between mind and body. After graduating from Kings College London with a degree in Neuroscience she developed a regular yoga practice and became dedicated to the study and practice of yoga.  Passionate about sharing the benefits of yoga with others Joelle trained as a yoga teacher in London in 2011 and regularly attends workshops and teacher training courses to deepen her understanding.  


Joelle has completed many Ashtanga teacher training courses with experienced teachers following the lineage of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois including: David Swenson, Kino MacGregor & Joey Miles.  Joelle travels annually for intensive study guided by her teacher David Garrigues to develop her own practice.  She continues to explore the science of yoga through self practice as well as further study with her teachers. 


Joelle’s yoga classes involve a sequence of postures, focusing on linking breath with movement in a dynamic flow to leave you feeling energised, invigorated and relaxed.  Her belief is that yoga is about learning to respect your body whilst daring to push your limits to improve the strength and flexibility of body and mind.  She strives to share a practice that is challenging, dynamic, and accessible for all.


Joelle is available for private one-to-one yoga tuition, please get in touch for more details.

She also teaches corporate classes and public group classes in London, Marlow, Maidenhead and Windsor.
