“The success of Yoga does not lie in the ability to perform postures but in how it positively changes the way we live our life and our relationships.”
Christabel Reed is a Yoga Teacher & Yoga Therapist trained in Hatha Yoga, Ayurveda and the lineage of Krishnamacharya and Sri Desikachar. In 2017 she completed a Masters in the Traditions of Yoga & Meditation, SOAS.
Christabel employs the practice of Yoga as a means of re-wilding from within - a way of un-peeling the layers that prevent us from connecting to our inherent peace and power.
Group classes and 121s incorporate movement, sound, breath development, meditation and chanting. Christabel aims to meet students where they are at to develop healthy foundations for deep transformation and evolution.
For Christabel, Yoga has never been about attaining certain postures but about how it can heal and nourish our relationship with ourselves, others and the natural world. Rather than being moved by comparison and competition, Christabel encourages the reduction of the tendency to compare ourselves and experiences as better, same or worse than others/our expectations. Instead, she gives space for students to cultivate an awareness of where they are at, develop compassion and find joy in each moment as they move towards the light.

PRIVATE CLASSES & Yoga therapy
Through her training in Ayurveda, Yoga Therapy, Vinyasa Krama, Mantra and Philosophy, Christabel works closely with individuals employing different techniques according to where they are at whilst paving a way forwards to where they want to go. Developing a daily practice for deep evolution is at the heart of the work.
Christabel offers group classes in offices around London. These are popular for increasing creative energy, confidence, mental alertness, positive thinking, memory, focus and concentration while also reducing muscle tension and pain due to sedentary working positions and builds up strength and flexibility.
The health of the planet & the individual are two sides of the same coin
In 2015 Christabel set up Advaya Initiative with her sister, Ruby Reed. Advaya is an educational and experiential social change platform that explores solutions to the interconnected crises of ecological collapse, consumerism and mental health
Through education, experience, community and action Advaya works to deepen ecological awareness while inspiring and empowering individuals to transform their lives and the world around them.
