Do you have the patience to wait till your mud settles and the water is clear? Can you remain unmoving until the right action arises by itself?

Lao-Tzu, Tao-Te-Ching

Mindfulness is an ancient Buddhist practice, which has profound relevance for our present day lives. This relevance has nothing to do with Buddhism per se or with becoming a Buddhist, but it has everything to do with waking up and living in harmony with oneself and with the world.



Yoga has been proven to be very beneficial to women during pregnancy, labour and beyond, creating a feeling of well-being and confidence in body and mind.


Mummy & Me

Whilst life with a new baby can be joyful and exciting, it can also become overwhelming. Postnatal Yoga supports mothers in reclaiming their bodies after pregnancy.


I absolutely love the classes! Helen gets the perfect balance between mindfulness/relaxation and strength/workout. I’ve never found this with any other class!!

Emily Roessler

I am so happy to find that Helen now does online classes! I was a regular in her in person classes in Leytonstone before I moved to Cornwall, and I had definitely been missing them. I love the mindfulness of Helen’s classes and I find them very relaxing. It’s great to be able to practice with her still, being so far away!

Melanie Henson

I really enjoyed the virtual class, I like your approach, your pace and the end as well. It is what I need, and it was so good to feel bits of me waking up. It was the first time on a yoga mat for 18 months.

Kairen Zonena

I absolutely adore Helen’s yoga! Highly addictive, meditative and effective! Her guidance is so clear that I now do most of the lesson with my eyes closed. Where necessary, Helen would adjust your asana gently correcting the alignment. The session always ends with a beautiful reading. I started Helen’s online lessons at the beginning of the 1st lockdown. Apart from these providing amazing mental wellbeing support, I have gained considerable mobility.

Sasha Jackson

Helen has been my yoga teacher through all stages of my life. Her calming classes in the magical setting of the Quaker building in Leytonstone eased my stresses at the end of busy working days, her 1:1 pre-natal classes held in my garden were a tonic to my pre birth anxiety and made the world of difference to my mind and changing body. Helen’s teaching translates so well on Zoom and her Mummy & Me classes are now a treasured fixture in our week.

Amy Bannerman

Helen’s classes are welcoming and friendly. Her practice is both challenging and relaxing with an emphasis on mindfulness that is just right for relieving stress without straying too far into the esoteric. As an instructor she is calm, practical and observant – knowing exactly how far to push you. I always feel better walking out of her class than I did walking in.

Andy Johnson

I love Helen’s yoga class, for many reasons, but mainly because after an hour on the mat, with Helen’s guidance, I always feel so much better in my body and mind. She is a wonderful teacher…and who knows, one day I might be able to touch my toes with straight legs but until such a time, Helen has helped me to realise that that is not what’s important.

Donia Judd

After doing some yoga in my 20s, I’m so glad that I chose Helen’s class for my return to yoga 30 years later. Helen is calm & patient and explains the poses clearly. I am so grateful that she continued her classes on zoom during the pandemic and still amazed to see that she manages to watch us as carefully and advise just as well in the virtual classes. I leave the class feeling both calmer & energised.

Sharon Payne

I have attended Helen’s yoga classes since 2013, including her pregnancy & postnatal yoga classes which have helped me strengthen my body. Helen is welcoming and adaptive in her style of teaching with clear instructions and adjustments as required. She encourages me to approach each posture as though you are doing it for the first time and this helps me stay present throughout the class. I love her classes and look forward to every class.

Hanisha Solanka

Helen creates a fun and relaxed environment for her classes, where she expertly brings together the teaching of yoga and mindfulness. I get a lot out of Helen’s classes and would definitely recommend them.

Mark Hilton

I’ve now moved away from Leytonstone. However your yoga classes were the best I’ve ever been to. For now it is farewell. I trust you’ll touch many more people’s lives with your practice

Sarah Phibbs-Moss

Helen has a unique approach to her teaching, incorporating a good ratio of meditation and mindfulness with yoga postures and movement making them fit all abilities and ages. She is able to nurture all participants to the best of their ability with clear instructions and precision to detail.
