NAMASTE,

I’M GEORGIE,

I am a qualified yoga teacher, internationally recognised by the Yoga Alliance®. I trained in the northern mountains of India, in a region called Dharamshala. This area is well known for being home of the Dalai Lama, and was  the dream spot to complete my Yoga Teacher Training. The Tibetan Buddhist hilltop town has a spiritual energy imprinted in the culture of the people, buildings and the history. Having the chance to practice in such a naturally peaceful place acted as a strong foundation for me, shaping the type of teacher I wanted to become.  Having practiced yoga on and off for the last 3 years, I found I was always pulled back to it, whenever I took a break. So after spending 7 months travelling around India, I decided to follow my heart and further my practice, beginning my Yoga Teacher Training. This opportunity not only improved my physical strength and technique, it enabled me to explore deeper into my meditation practice, and delve into the world of mindfulness. It was an incredible, life changing experience.

I’m currently based in South West London. I’m excited for the continued chance to grow, both as a practitioner and a student, in this beautiful life’s journey. I look forward to sharing a practice with you!

“We contracted Georgie (The Knotted Yogi) last year to offer a yoga practice to our employees based at our West London offices. After an initial taster session, the classes are going strong and the participant feedback has been great. The class is accessible to all and we have complete beginners to experienced yogis – Georgie creates a very inclusive atmosphere which is non-competitive and where each person can go at their own pace. You can see that a lot of time and effort goes into planning the class, with some very apt tunes and impeccable timing. I guess the best testament to Georgie’s ability is the number of returning customers of which there are plenty.”

“Georgie held yoga sessions with us in our offices earlier this year. We were a team of 8 of, all with mixed abilities, and we all thoroughly enjoyed it – our sessions were in the morning before work and kick started our days the best way. Georgie is fantastic, very friendly and made us feel at ease from the very start. We look forward to heaving Georgie back with us soon!”

Anxiety and Stress Levels at All Time High…..Can Yoga and Meditation help?

REVIEWS

“Georgie is a fantastic yoga teacher. I’ve practiced yoga for three years, and have tried several styles and disciplines, but Georgie’s is the most dynamic class I’ve ever been to. From the moment you walk into the room, she provides an atmosphere, with candles and fairy lights to calming music and relaxing scents. No class is ever the same, and Georgie blends hatha, ashtanga, and vinyasa styles in her flows.

What makes her such a great teacher is her willingness to explain things. She’ll talk you through a breathing technique or an asana with ease. She also knows just how to push her students. I’ve been going to her classes for about nine months now, and she’s fantastic at reminding her students not to fall back into those pesky ‘bad habits’. In talking us through the breathing and the movements, Georgie always takes care to make sure that no one injures themselves, and will adjust everyone in the class to make sure they’re moving correctly.

Aside from her fantastic yogi knowledge, she’s such a cheerful spirit and a joy to learn from and practice with! We are so sad to be losing her this August, but can’t wait for her to come back from Sri Lanka in October!”

“We are really enjoying the classes. It’s a great venue and I think Georgie is using the space really well. I am impressed at how welcoming , attentive and encouraging she is, keeping in mind different abilities and needs. Maxine, aged 16 and me, at the tender age of 52, are looking forward to our Tuesday evenings. I have been to a number of classes over the years and think Georgie is doing a great job.”

Linda, 52

“Georgie’s passion for yoga really resonates in her classes. As a beginner I’ve felt completely comfortable with positions compared to other experiences I’ve had. Georgie takes the time to cater for all ages and abilities. A great teacher and lovely spirit, would highly recommend!”
