Welcome to Yoga Loughborough!
Here at Yoga Loughborough you will find classes, courses, workshops, and retreats. We 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 apart of a community.
Yoga is a holistic practice offering a number of benefits both physical and mental. Some benefits include reduced physical and mental tension, muscle strength and tone, correcting poor posture, improved flexibility and increased energy flow. Yoga will also improve your breathing, circulation, digestion and calm the nervous system.
Meditation is the practice that will bring peace of mind. Meditation helps develop self awareness, focusing our attention on the present moment without judgement. Benefits include a reduction in stress, improved sleep, a more positive outlook, and reduced inner conflict.
Reena – Teacher & Founder
Reena founded Yoga Loughborough in 2015 after completing her initial teacher training course. Her inspiration came about when she couldn’t find a local class which she connected to. She then took a very difficult decision to leave her professional career in the corporate world and teach full time. Reena had graduated from Loughborough University and Kings College London but believed her real life lessons started when she practiced yoga and meditation. Her passion and drive comes from the significant impact and positive changes that have come about in her journey.
Reena was inspired by the practice of meditation many years ago and was later introduced to yoga by her uncle Kishore from Boston USA. She credits much of her early learning to him, who is an embodiment of yogic values.
Growing up Reena loved dancing and also obtained a Diploma in South Asian Classical Dance. She is also a big fan of many sports, playing for the school hockey and netball teams, and also loves a game of tennis!
Reena has travelled extensively staying in communities and yoga centres around the world, including a trip to India where she obtained her advanced yoga certification.
Reena is an Experienced Member of the Yoga Alliance Professionals UK, having over 2000 hours of teaching experience and having completed a number of additional courses. Reena is insured with the Yoga Alliance UK.
Further Training Completed: Yoga for Children, Yoga for Pregnancy, Yoga for Seniors (plus chair yoga), Yoga Psychology, Yoga Posture and Anatomy, Meditation and Mantra Chanting.
