About your teacher - Bindi Edwards

Whilst classes for those living with cancer are carefully tailored to specific students, Bindi's general classes are largely asana (posture) based, with strong elements of pranayama and meditation included. Bindi focuses on joint integrity and correct alignment, with the primary objective being to keep people as mobile as possible for as long as possible.

Bindi has been practicing yoga for nearly 35 years and trained as a teacher with Simon Low at The Yoga Academy, which is endorsed and approved by the British Wheel of Yoga and by The Yoga Alliance (international). She now assists Simon Low on the Yoga Academy teacher training courses as part of the faculty.

Bindi continues to study with world renowned teachers on anatomy and various specialisms and has completed courses in yoga for those living with cancer, yoga for eating disorders and yoga for recovering addicts.

Please make sure you have a confidential chat with Bindi before joining the class so she can have a full picture of any treatment you might be receiving.
