Yoga Leicester are Zoë Martin and Gary Ward. Our training and main inspiration is rooted in the tradition of T Krishnamacarya and TKV Desikachar, Chennai India.  Honouring the teachings of old, whilst creating and cultivating new ideas moment to moment we share the spirit of yoga in practical, accessible ways - through talking, listening, observation, movement and stillness, breath and sound work.

We are certified and highly skilled yoga teachers & yoga therapists, we have both completed the Professional Practitioner Yoga Teaching & Therapeutic Healthcare Training Programme with Centre for Yoga Studies (cYs). As yoga therapists we are registered with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC).

We both studied with Paul Harvey and are hugely grateful to him for his generous guidance. We are currently exploring yoga with Sylviane Gianina, Ranju Roy & Dave Charlton.
