RACHEL WARD



I am originally from Santa Moncia, California, and moved to London in 2010. I began to practice almost everyday and found myself drawn to teaching. Yoga has changed my life over the last 5 years both mentally and physically. I have struggled with tight hamstrings my entire life and after several years of consistent practice, I am able to do things I never thought possible. I have also struggled with anxiety on and off and yoga has been the most effective tool to keep it at bay. Yoga has taught me that all limitations I place on myself are in the mind and that we are all capable of retraining the mind. After completing my 200-hour teacher training at Yoga Dharma, I became focused on bringing my students the opportunity for self transformation. My classes are challenging yet accessible and open to all levels, including beginners. My favourite yoga practice is smiling.

Jessica's passion for yoga led her to do a 200 hour yoga teacher training alongside her full time job.

Her passion for a dynamic practice led Jessica to find Acroyoga, which she dedicates a lot of her time to also.

Immediately after training she travelled south through Latin America, teaching dynamic classes in her fun and light-hearted style at studios and guesthouses, while exploring her passions for being active and eating all the superfoods.

EVA BROCKSCHMIDT



Eva is a trained Vinyasa Flow and Rocket Yoga teacher. She loves getting upside down and generally making weird shapes with the body. However, she has had to realise that being able to put your foot behind your head or handstand in the middle of the room unfortunately won’t bring you happiness or enlightenment.
In addition to yoga Eva is passionate about self-love and body positivity, though like many other people she still struggles with these things. This is reflected in her teaching which comes from an empathetic and supportive place. Expect a fun but challenging class, you are encouraged to push yourself in a mindful and nurturing way. No two bodies are alike so options are given allowing students to modify as needed. There may also be some bad jokes and she will probably mix up left and right at least once (as it turns out yoga teachers are only human after all)!

ZEN KARATE - Meditation in Motion


Many times the true concept of karate in misunderstood, much do to the way media portraits martial-arts. The real goal of karate is not about fighting others but to fight ourselves, our personal boundaries and to develop our own character. The karateka is required to live an ethical life. This involves proper behaviour in all aspects of life. The code of all martial artists: one's skill to harm others should only be used for self-defense or for the preservation of justice.

The fours sessions at the Re:Solutions will be focusing on core concepts of karate, body alignment, smooth foot work, kime (concentration of power), coordination, balance, kihon (basic techniques), kata ( karate forms) Kumite (basic sparring) offered alongside the teachings of budo philosophy that is the base for the martia-arts practice. We will be exploring some of the following concepts:

Mental discipline - One of the most highly sought after rewards of all martial arts training.

Mokusu - Meditation to strengthen and discipline the mind. By controlling the mind, one can suppress desire and control emotions. The martial arts practitioner should feel no anger, no pride, no pain, no suffering of any kind. These are the major causes of violence, unhappiness, and defeat, and they must be avoided.

Mushin - Intuitive wisdom implies that one must do, not think. When "thinking," one imposes restrictions on oneself by creating attachments to the world and its illusions. In "doing," you detach yourself from the world, becoming egoless and effortless. Mushin it refers to being void of thought, without emotion, without expectations or anticipation.

Karate means "empty hand" implies not only a lack of weapons but an emptying of the mind as well.

After his initial training he has taken further yin yoga training with Sarah Powers and astanga vinyasa training with Richard Freeman and is in the process of qualifying as a sports massage and soft tissue therapist. He teaches yin, satang and restorative yoga at studios in North London.

He describes his style as 'simple and direct with plenty of space for mindful practice'. His favourite quote: "It's not the purpose of our bodies to get us into the pose, it's the purpose of the pose to get us into our bodies".

Kate Lister




Kate Lister's exploration of yoga began aged 14, when she found a book of middle-aged women with 70s hair, shiny leotards and very bendy bodies in her grandma's house. Weirdly, this attracted her. Luckily, she soon found out there was much more to yoga!

With a practice background in Ashtanga yoga, training in Vinyasa Flow, and an aversion to taking life too seriously, Kate shares playful, dynamic, breath-led sequencing with a focus on mindful alignment. She encourages students to find a personal practice in each class, so that they may cultivate their own yoga and experience the many ways in which the practice expands all areas of our human life.

Kate is also a professional singer and, having found yoga so supportive of this area of her life, now creates yoga programmes for musicians and performers specifically. She loves to use music to set the mood in class, and has been known to bust out a tune mid-asana. Song requests welcome!
