Zena Kidd-May Yoga Oxford

Zena, Founder of Satya Yoga is a passionate teacher who discovered yoga over 10 years ago at the Sivananda Centre in London and went on to complete her Sivananda yoga teacher training in the Bahamas in 2003. Zena spent a year teaching at the Sivananda Centre in Putney. When pregnant with her first baby, she decided to qualify with Birthlight and began teaching pre and postnatal yoga and is now on a 3 year British Wheel of Yoga Diploma course with Maarten Vermaase.

“I am absolutely fascinated by the human body/mind and the incredible power of our attitudes to not only influence but to actually create our own realities. The more I practice in the moment, the more joy and peace I feel and it seems to me that my feelings of well-being get embedded in my daily life – this is my yoga”  Zena Kidd-May

Why Satya Yoga? Satya means ‘truth’ in Sanskrit. When a student qualifies to become a Sivananda yoga teacher, they are given a Sanskrit name and this was the name given to her.

Satya Yoga was established in London in 2003 by Zena Kidd-May, who taught yoga to private individuals at her London studio for several years.

I was worried about joining a yoga class as I see myself as a tight, stiff person. I had had bad experiences of classes before that were too fast and not well explained and they had left me feeling I’d ‘failed’. Zena’s classes are completely different – they are calm and mindful and each new pose is well explained. We are given the space to work at our own pace and the time to take something personal from each pose. My body is still pretty tight, but I love the yoga classes and at each lesson appreciate what I am able to do with the right encouragement. Zena creates a very productive and calm atmosphere, where I feel I am free to do what works for me without having to be in competition with others.
