Sine started general yoga classes about 26 years ago and continued to attend classes in London occasionally or when she was stressed. After a year of ‘playing’ with the idea of yoga she was introduced to Iyengar yoga and never looked back.
She attended Glenys Shephard’s classes in the Iyengar Yoga Institute of South London. She felt that practising Iyengar yoga improved her concentration and calmed her mind. She was intrinsically drawn to the idea of ‘uniting body & mind’. She felt that Iyengar yoga gave her the opportunity to experience this unique feeling.
B.K.S. Iyengar says ‘the first 12 years you are a beginner’ and this humbling idea captivated her and she decided to become an Iyengar teacher when she was traveling (and dancing tango!) in Buenos Aires approximately 10 years after she started Iyengar yoga. She believes that the hard-core training of Iyengar yoga and the process of becoming a teacher taught her to be humble, accepting and also made her more flexible.
She also completed her 2-year study of Ayurvedic philosophy, medicine and dravyaguna ( pharmacology) at the European Institute of Vedic Studies.
Sine believes yoga practice is a must for everyone regardless of age, gender and level of flexibility. Come to classes with an open mind and heart and let yourself into this amazing journey.
Sine is a member of the Iyengar Yoga Association UK and holds an Intermediate Junior 3 certification and can administer yoga therapy.
