Our Story

Welcome and Namaste! 

We truly believe yoga is for everyone and encourage everyone to practice yoga regardless of their personal background.  We hope that in practising yoga you will not only improve your wellbeing but also feel a part of a community.

Yoga is a holistic practice offering a number of benefits both physical and mental.  Benefits include reduced  physical and mental tension, muscle strength and tone, correcting poor posture, greater flexibility and increased energy flow.  Yoga will also improve your breathing, circulation, digestion and nervous system.

Meditation is the practice that brings peace of mind.  Meditation helps develop self awareness, focusing our attention on the present moment without any judgement.  Benefits include a reduction in stress, improved sleep, a more positive outlook, and reduced inner and outer conflict.

Reena – Teacher & Founder

Reena founded Yoga Loughborough after completing her initial teacher training course.  Her inspiration came about when she couldn’t find a local class similar to her preferred style and also wanted to develop a sense of community and service among people from all walks of life.  At the time on a break from her professional career she then decided to continue teaching fulltime.  Reena graduated from Kings College London and Loughborough University although believes the most significant shift in her life occurred whilst practicing yoga and meditation.
