Certificate level: Level 3

Helen has over 20 years’ teaching experience as a qualified Iyengar yoga teacher, in the UK and in Hungary. She holds the Intermediate Junior certificate level 3 and has taught a wide range of students, from beginners to intermediate, including people with chronic health problems such as recurring back pain. Her ultimate intention is for every student to leave the class feeling better uplifted and empowered, integrated, more collected, centred, at ease, at one.

“The right method of doing asanas brings lightness and an exhilarating feeling in the body and the mind and a feeling of oneness” – Quotation by B.K.S. Iyengar.


Helen is a natural teacher and provides a caring and calm environment in which to develop yoga practice. Helen guides you through the postures with gentle assertiveness working to the strengths of the group and encouraging individuals to work within their own limits and remain safe.

Helen’s warmth, wit and knowledge creates a calm and relaxed environment. She adjusts postures according to individual needs and her approachable style enables participants to actively seek clarification and guidance throughout as necessary.

Her classes have opened up my understanding of how yoga can help me to manage and improve my back problems. I feel I have a toolkit of techniques to help me when I have a flare up of back pain, but also postures for daily practice to improve and maintain my flexibility and strength.

Every week I left Helen’s class feeling calmer, more supple and looking forward to the next session.
