  • How to improve posture
  • Key breathing focuses to make running and walking less effort

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.
