About the teachers

Nita Shah will be returning to Rebali in 2011 for the second year. A registered yoga teacher (RYT), she teaches with a positive energy, encouraging students to practice with awareness of their innate intelligence. Passionate about yoga, she spent two years travelling through India, and the Far East, exploring different styles of yoga with different teachers, before returning to the UK, where she continues to study and teach yoga. Her teaching style draws on the influence of Iyengar Yoga, with its focus on alignment and precise instructions to deepen the experience the physical postures and quieten the mind.

Simple props are used to improve understanding and awaken the body's natural intelligence, making postures accessible to all, whatever their level of experience or ability. She is a qualified Iyengar teacher, REPS Level 3 instructor and RYT200 teacher. She also teaches workshops to Yoga Alliance and British Wheel of Yoga trainee teachers for Teachyoga.com. Nita believes that classes should be informative, instructive and most of all, an enjoyable exploration that makes you feel healthier, lighter and energized.

This year, Nita will be joined by Catherine Alison. Cathy is also an Iyengar Yoga teacher, and has a British Wheel of Yoga teaching qualification and REPS level 3. She teaches across London and is very passionate and dedicated to the teaching of Iyengar yoga, focusing on precise body alignment. She teaches with warmth and patience, encouraging students to explore their practice and improve their experience of the posture.

As two teachers, it will be possible to ensure that everyone receives individual attention, adjustments and encouragement. The postures will be adjusted to meet students' requirements, improving well-being through physical alignment, nurturing self-awareness and integration of body, mind and soul. The classes are suitable for all levels, from beginners who want to explore what yoga has to offer, to more experienced practioners who want to deepen their practice.
