About The Teacher

Lydia Brown

After university I was not sure what I wanted to do next. I eventually decided to travel around Asia with the intention of then spending an extended period living and working in Australia. Whilst in Bali in 2017 I discovered yoga and signed up to my first yoga class,  anticipating that it would enhance my active lifestyle, which included distance running. After settling in Australia I found a yoga studio and discovered that yoga enabled me to express myself by finding creativity in movement in ways which were beyond my expectations.

After my time in Australia, in 2019, I travelled to Rishikesh in India, the spiritual home of yoga, to complete a 200 hour Vinyasa & Ashtanga teacher training course. Since then I have completed further training in Restorative Yoga, Yoga Nidra & Mindfulness. In addition, in 2022, I completed a further 300 hour teacher training, this time in Nepal.

I always aim to inspire my students with dynamic, creative & playful sequences that demonstrate my love for music and words, providing my students with the best experience to allow them to go away from my classes feeling a little lighter with an enhanced self-connection.
