OUR PHILOSOPHY

Buddhi

A rational and intuitive intelligence, one of four functions of mind; faculty of discrimination and wisdom; the inner observer.

Yoga is stepping back from the chaos in our lives & minds to cultivate awareness, playful joy and childlike curiosity. 

The practice of asana (movement), pranayama (conscious breathing) and meditation (gentle awareness) invites us to enquire deeper.

Gentle and compassionate observation allows us to notice what arises. We can then begin to enjoy the subtle magic of each moment, every breath as an opportunity.

"Yoga teaches me to be humble, to be brave, to accept what is, rather than grasp for what's not. 
I encourage anyone to come to the mat, as they are, bringing a sense of adventure, a compassionate heart, playfulness and curiosity.
Yoga will help you to release, rejuvenate & reconnect."

Hey I'm Jess, the founder of Shake Your Buddhi. I'm a bit of a goofball who tries not to take herself too seriously. I have a passion for sharing the experience of being human with other humans. I hope to offer the wisdom & freedom that yoga invites to as many people as I can... 

After practicing yoga on and off for years I completed my initial RYT200 in Bali with Santosha Yoga School. I study and practice the yoga that I need in the moment. My teaching empowers students to discover what's needed right now, always cultivating steadiness & ease. I'm inspired to share yoga with anyone and everyone who is willing to drop-in, let go, to savour a challenge and to approach practice (and life!) with playfulness, awareness & curiosity.

In 2016 I completed a second RYT200 in dynamic Vinyasa style with guidance and inspiration from Rahoul Masrani at Yoga London. I have completed Pre and Postnatal teacher training and am currently working towards my 500hr certification under the guidance of Corrie McCallum. I am inspired by the teachings of Meghan Currie, Vanda Scaravelli, Jason Crandell, Sally Kempton, Molly Birkholm and many others.
