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 plus 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 taught to upbeat music.
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.
“Amrita’s infectiously calm and friendly personality will instantly put you at ease and her teaching style is always fun and educational, you will walk away feeling incredible and relaxed every time.”
Jivamukti Yoga is a world-renowned yoga method developed by Sharon Gannon and David Life in the United States in the late 1990’s.
The method was crafted in alignment with teachings from their three gurus – the art of ‘Vinyasa Krama’ from Pattabhi Jois, Shri Brahmananda Sarasvati (yogic philosophy) and Swami Nirmalananda (ahimsa/non-violence)
