Originally from Zimbabwe, Amrita has been practicing yoga for 16 years and teaching for 11 years. She initially trained in the Sivananda lineage with Yoga Vidya, while living in Cologne, Germany and became a teacher in 2005.
While living in Cologne she met her teachers Sharon Gannon and David Life (co-founders of the Jivamukti Yoga Method) and in 2008 completed the Jivamukti Yoga Teacher Training at the Omega Institute in Rheinbeck, New York.
Amrita then completed an apprenticeship at Jivamukti Yoga London under the mentorship of Advanced Jivamukti Teacher Emma Henry in 2009.
Amrita obtained a diploma to teach Unity Partner Yoga from Unity School, Brighton and is a qualified holistic massage practitioner. She has a background in ballet and contemporary dance and is a facilitator for specialized group therapy through the Humaniversity in the Netherlands.
Amrita is inspired to bring yogic teachings into a modern, urban context to enrich our busy western lifestyle.
Jivamukti classes are based on Ashtanga Yoga and combine a dynamic vinyasa (flowing) asana practice with a spiritual focus or intention and are taught to an upbeat eclectic music playlist.
Amrita’s Jivamukti style classes include Sanskrit chanting, yogic philosophy, eclectic music playlists, hands on assists, relaxation and meditation, she creates a caring supportive space to go deeper into your yoga practice and into yourself.

Partner Yoga for Couples and Friends
Venue: The Yoga Garden, New Barn Farm, West Sussex, UK “With friends you grow wings, alone you are a single feather” Rumi
Unity Partner Yoga is a playful, restorative, and deeply nourishing practice that involves working together in duos. Your partner can be a a romantic partner, a friend or a stranger.
Through practicing with a partner we experience postures more deeply and even find ourselves doing postures we may not be able to do alone. This is a safe, supported andsacred space to work intimately with another.
We will practice trust and connecting exercises, breathing and meditation, as well as active and passive partner poses and partnering sequences.
The practice is physical, but overall the aim is to deepen our experience of unity, connection, and oneness, which is the ultimate goal of yoga.
