Jordan Crowley has just graduated as a yoga teacher on the YogaLondon 200-hour, year-long course. We asked this capable, bright Events Manager what it was like to study during a pandemic and how training to be a yoga teacher has changed her life. Oh, and we find out about her adorable new puppy Fabio, and how she’s gotten over her fear of public speaking.
Shannen Li is a woman of many talents: a single mother to two teenage boys, lecturer in Marketing, yoga teacher, holistic therapist, and passionate green advocate. She talks to YogaLondon about her approach to motherhood, her love of Autumn, and why she has been wowed by the YogaLondon 500-hour teacher training course.
Jonathan Thompson is an Ashtangi, YogaLondon 200-hour teacher trainer, and a deeply sensitive and emotionally intuitive person. Here he talks to us about the impact of his father’s early death, the mutually supportive relationship he has with his mother and how, for him, yoga, coaching, and psychology are all different sides of the same coin. Oh, and he definitely believes in ghosts.
Brenda Wanjiku a.k.a. @shikushapes is a YogaLondon graduate who ‘clicked’ with yoga from the very first class she went to. Self-effacing, artistic and passionate about food, she talks yoga in quarantine, growing avocados, doing yoga with her stepdad and why we should learn from each other.
