Hayley teaches Jivamukti Yoga having studied with inspiring teachers Sharon Gannon, David Life, Jules Febre and Ruth Lauer Manenti.
Hayley's interest in philosophy and psychology was sparked in her early teens. During a trip to Asia in 2009 she became particularly interested in Eastern philosophy and Buddhism.
Whilst working in events and hospitality she was introduced to yoga and found that it bought calm and clarity to a busy mind and tired body. Yoga quickly became an integral part of her life.
In 2015 she left the UK to spend several months studying and travelling in India and completed her 300 Hour Jivamukti Teacher Training in February 2016. She now lives and teaches in Cambridge and continues to study with mentor Andrea Kwiatkowski.
Her classes incorporate a dynamic physical practice, an uplifting soundtrack and a lot of laughter.
Hayley fully believes in a causal relationship between practicing yoga and a life filled with peace, love and happiness. Forever a student, she is truly grateful for all the teachers in her life that share their knowledge and continue to inspire.
Jivamukti Yoga is a path to liberation through compassion to all beings. Founded in New York in 1984 by Sharon Gannon and David Life, it has since grown into an internationally renowned form.
It is a dynamic physical practice that integrates scriptural study, devotion, chanting, music and meditation. The method emphasises the original sanskrit word 'asana' as seat, connection to the Earth, promoting ethical vegetarianism and animal rights.
The name Jivamukti comes from two sanskrit words; Jiva meaning individual soul and mukti meaning liberation.
"The name Jivamukti Yoga reflects the fact that it is possible to have a beneficial and fulfilling life in the world, and also progress spiritually-perhaps even attaining liberation (Samadhi) while living.” – Sharon Gannon and David Life
