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.

Coming to Zena’s class is my special time, my little retreat of the week. I have always looked for something to keep my body fit, limber and engaged as well as for a way to help put my mind at ease. Yoga is just that for me because it helps to calm my mind down and offers a chance to leave my worries outside, while giving my bodies a chance to stretch and work on areas previously unknown to me. Zena’s teaching in her lovely studio offers just that to me. It provides for me that perfect serene atmosphere that challenges me to try something new in an environment where I feel completely supported and cared for. I wish I could go every day—and not only because of her delicious goodies which will always make me come back for more.
