Yoga with Hélène
Strengthen. Lengthen. Breathe. Enjoy
If you like small classes, personalised, gentle yet challenging, international and with a real community feel then look no further! You have arrived in the right place. I hold a space for women who like practising yoga in a relaxed atmosphere, taking it very seriously but without taking themselves seriously, because the more you enjoy what you do, the more you will want to do it!
And regularly practising yoga has many benefits, from reducing stress and improving health, mental as well as physical to heightened flexibility and better focus.
I qualified as a Sivananda yoga instructor in 2003 in India and have since been training and learning all the time with different teachers from different traditions. I recently completed a Yoga for Peri Menopause and Menopause training.
I also trained to teach Teenagers with YogaCampus in London in June 2018 and absolutely love my classes with the aduts of the future.
My classes are held over zoom or in Couch End, London N8 for the face to face classes and the workshops. London has been my adoptive home for the past 24 years... The retreats are held in Hossegor in the south west of France, my home country.
I have classes in English and in French.
Classes for Teenagers
The classes are tailor-made and designed especially for the teenagers in that specific class. Yoga helps young people reconnect with their body, get stronger and fitter and it teaches them to breathe, de-stress and relax.
I currently hold one class for teenagers in CrouchEnd, London, N8:
- 5:00 to 6:00pm
Classes for Adults
Regularly practicing yoga has many benefits. From increased focus to heightened flexibility, we all benefit differently from yoga. Have a look at the classes I teach throughout the week to see what works for you.
Yoga with Hélène
Mondays at 9:15am and 6:30pm;
Haelan Centre N8:
Tuesdays at 6:20pm
Coolhurst Tennis club N8:
Thursdays at 7:00pm
With a maximum of 10 people per class, I make sure my clients get exactly what they need : we have a quick chat at the beginning of the class to make sure everyone is all right and asses what they could need that day. Even over zoom, I constantly check over everyone present so everyone is looked after.
My classes are aimed at women in their forties and over and they are a much-needed break from the stress and speed of day to day life. They are fun, relaxing and very personal, they will leave you feeling energized, yet relaxed, centered and renewed, having had a wonderful time connecting with yourself and other women in your community.
"I really enjoy Helene’s teaching style. She varies the exercices and the types of yoga she teaches. She is very clear in her explanations and always gives alternatives, which makes it easy to progress at your own rhythm. She has a very sharp eye and controls everyone's posture, even remotely. The classes are very professional yet friendly and relaxed. I really appreciate the middle size groups so the classes feel personalised. And as they take place several days/times per week, there is really no excuse to miss them!" Myriam, London

Yoga for over 60s
Stay fit and Healthy on Tuesdays at 9:30am
A slow and gentle class perfectly adapted to the needs of people a bit less fast, a bit less able than before. Still a challenging class for those who want. We use props such as belts, blocks and chairs.
Currently over zoom.
"Helene is the best yoga teacher I have had in over 20 years. She has great integrity, watchfulness, good humour and her classes are varied - she has new things for us to do rather than relying on the same postures every time. I have arthritis and this is so good at keeping me moving. I’m always calmer and more focused after her classes - everything slows down. Hope she never retires." Kate K. London
Yoga en français via Zoom
Le mercredi à 18h30 heure française:
Une classe où l'on se retrouve de France, d'Angleterre et d'ailleurs. On papote, un peu!, on échange, on rit avant de faire une séance de Yin yoga ou de Hatha, au gré de nos humeurs, nos besoins et nos envies.
"J'aime tes cours de yoga car j'aime te retrouver et j'aime ton enseignement.
Tu es très attentive à tes élèves, tu nous connais et sais que telle position ne va pas convenir à telle femme car elle a mal à tel endroit et telle autre position ne sera pas bonne pour telle autre femme.
Bref, j'ai l'impression d'avoir un cours particulier... tout en étant entourée d'amies !
J'apprécie que ce soit en petit comité, que nous nous connaissions et c'est donc un plaisir de se retrouver chaque semaine pour 5mn de papotage au début.
Tes cours sont très variés, on sent que tu les as travaillé avant ... Tes cours sont aussi un mélange de physique et de spirituel et tu as trouvé un parfait équilibre entre les 2 à mon sens. " C. Paris
