I teach flowing vinyasa yoga classes for all levels in London, mainly in Islington and Stoke Newington. The classes link movement and breath in imaginative, sometimes challenging, and always fun sequences, balancing the energy of dynamic movement with the stillness of a moving meditation. My classes are welcoming and friendly. They include some yoga philosophy and pranayama. I emphasise physical and subtle energetic aspects, guiding students to become more aware of the body and familiar with the mind.
Through a flowing, dynamic asana practice we help the active mind to stay focused on the breath and movement of the body, alleviating tension, stress, repetitive thoughts and negative emotions. Asana practice supports a strong immune system creating a balance between strength and flexibility in the body. It energises and invigorates. Prepared in this way we can work in our meditation practice to deepen the awareness and calm the mind so that over time we can see a little more clearly what drives our feelings, emotions, actions and reactions.

I've been attending Isabell's yoga classes for about the last 3 years – it's hard to be exact because these classes have an eternal feel, as if you've always been going, or at least wish you had. The atmosphere is at once disciplined & nurturing, a fine balance & all too rare in my experience of London yoga. I feel blessed to have found a teacher who, whilst opening the spine & the hips, endeavours to do the same for the mind and the heart.Kirsty
I really enjoy the flowing and meditative nature of Isabell's classes. Each class builds-up poses around differing themes accompanied by some great soundtracks.Sarah L.
There is an insightful blend of yoga theory with strong practice.
Isabell has thoughtful new approaches to the poses I have always found challenging, and thanks to these classes I have continued to evolve my practice and am still finding new aspects of yoga to enjoy!
Isabell has enabled me to really deepen my practice due to her expertise in and passion for yoga. Her approach is full of warmth, energy and humour and I always come away from her dynamic classes energised.Lydia
Tailor made one to one sessions
Privates are bespoke sessions that I teach in my little yoga room or at your home.
They are built around your individual needs and interests and allow deeper focus on alignment, understanding of breathing techniques, meditation and yoga philosophy. This is a chance to take your practice to a new level. Private sessions are suitable for one to one tuition or small groups.
Please just email me for available times and prices.
Isabell is a truly incredible yoga teacher. I value my weekly one to one sessions with her enormously as they provide a wonderful environment in which to develop my practice and calm my mind. I couldn't recommend Isabell more highly.Jenny
I have received 121s from Isabell for years. Lessons are tailored to my requirements: building core strength, spending 40 minutes analysing warrior one, headstand practice, meditation techniques, whatever I suggest. Equally Isabell will suggest areas I might like to inquire into more depth and areas of improvement. We have the time to investigate the subtleties and nuances of asanas in a way that is not possible in an open class. As a direct result of these 121s my appreciation of all that yoga can offer has widened and deepened. My practice is now truly ‘my practice’.Robert
My series of six private classes with Isabell really transformed my yoga practice. It was incredibly helpful to have classes tailored to my own practice. Isabell was really patient and thoughtful and came up with a series of new ways for me to approach handstands, arm balances and headstands - and I was astonished at the progress I made, after years of being terrified of inversions. I would strongly recommend private classes with Isabell to anyone who wants to develop their practice.Sarah M.
Whatever mood or physical state you are in, Isabell has incredible capacity to adapt the session to your specific needs. She runs her yoga session with deep knowledge, great empathy and incredible professionalism. She is definitively one of the best yoga teachers in London.Caroline
