Currently teaching Hatha Yoga, Dance-in-Yoga and offers Mayura Teacher Training, Foundation Courses & Mayura Yoga Retreats

Paula Mayura owner of the Mayura Yoga Studio

I first practised Yoga as a small child and Yoga often awakens a childlike wonder of life and your place in it, to many it feels like ‘turning a light on inside'.

I began teaching exercise in 1983 and in the late 80's when I studied Homoeopathy it cultivated a holistic approach to health that resonated with my natural instincts. The philosophy acknowledged the interconnectedness of mind, body and spirit and how disharmony in the organism could eventually become disease. This has continued to fascinate me to the present day and the extraordinary potential Yoga has to harmonise and regenerate on a physical, mental, emotional and energetic level is hugely influential in my teaching.

I have been teaching Yoga since 2001, I hold a BWY Teaching Diploma gained with course tutor Derek Lucas and have also studied with Godfrey Devereux in Dynamic Yoga. My teaching style is basically Hatha but integrates many other teachings I have learned along the way. I founded the Mayura Yoga School in 2007 and have been training Yoga teachers and running Foundation Courses since which I do with a great passion and consider a great privilege.

It was my dream to open my own centre and now after a lot of hard work from many hands and the drive of someone to whom I shall always be grateful that vision has materialised. I have a professional and dedicated team of teachers and therapists, many of these teachers trained with me at the Mayura Yoga School so it feels almost like a family.

Just to put things in perspective...I love to dance and party and have lived life to the full, I am a mother of four, two girls and twin boys but still one of the most inspiring things I have ever witnessed is seeing people ‘Light up with Yoga'!
