The BWY London Festival is a unique gathering of yogis from all backgrounds and yoga traditions, students and teachers alike, coming together to learn, experience, share, connect and have fun! There are opportunities to experience a wide variety of yoga styles and disciplines with some of the finest international teachers and lecturers.

Come along and see me on Saturday and Sunday at this BWY Festival at the City of Westminster College in Paddington Green. I would love to chat with you and warmly invite you the two talks I am giving over the course of the weekend; one on surrender and what we can learn about letting go through the practice of yoga, and the other a plenary talk about the processes within the brain, related to yoga, coupled to such a letting go. This is also a great opportunity for you to learn more about the Minded Institute and the various trainings we offer, including our 550-hour Professional Training in Yoga Therapy. I really look forward to seeing you there!
