Every morning, Alva, my dearest friend and fabulous yoga teacher, will guide you through pranayama, asanas and relaxation focusing on the release of toxins from your whole being.

WuTao Dance is a meditative form of dance based on TCM. Carolyne Ji will take you on a beautiful journey to explore the Wood Element through dance. The wood element is associated with Spring as well as the organs, Liver and Gallbladder and emotions of anger and irritation. WuTao Dance is a fun and therapeutic way to dance your emotions and feel rejuvenated.

This is a very powerful and incredibly detoxifying therapy. I always collaborate with Purnima in all my retreats. Purnima is a darling friend, colleague and my personal therapist.

Alva E Malka

Alva E Malka

In 2002 Alva graduated in Traditional Chinese Medicine (Acupuncture, Herbology and Tuina) in an incorporate study program between Reidman International College for Complementary and Integrative Medicine and Chengdu University of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) in China.

During these 4 years of studies, she was privileged to be exposed to many different methods of healing and therapies and took additional classes outside the TCM frame.
She has also graduated Shiatsu therapy and practised daily Qi Gong and meditation.

This led her to fall in love with Yoga, in particular, Sivananda Yoga and that served as her teaching foundation.

In 2012, having practised for 14 years in various different styles of yoga including Astanga, Jivamukti, Dharma Mittra, Bikram and many more, she decided it was time to undertake some further training.

She then completed the Sun Power Yoga teacher training course with Anne-Marie Newland.
Sun Power Yoga is a wonderful fusion of three distinct forms and traditions:

  • The classical Sivananda yoga – Anne-Marie is a student of Swami Vishnu Devananda.
    Sivananda yoga focuses on 5 points: proper exercise (Asana), proper breathing (Pranayama), proper relaxation, proper diet and positive thinking & meditation.
  • Astanga yoga – Sri K. Pattabhi Jois – Vinyasa or flow of movement and purification.
  • B.K.S Iyengar yoga – which is well known for the detailed alignment.

She now teaches her own style; a combination which is influenced by my many teachers and shares her practice with lovely people of south-west London in the communities of Teddington and Kingston.

Her aim is to create a place where people can practice yoga and its many aspects at any level. A place where one can focus on one’s self and feel safe and capable to allow physical, emotional and spiritual growth.

Purnima Melos

Purnima Melos

Purnima believes that touch blesses our life from our birth on and can act as a powerful source of healing. She embraced meditation early in her life and received training from Ma Bodhigita in Brazil and later on, with the very creator of Ayurvedic Yoga Massage, Kusum Modak in India. She has been practising and teaching this unique massage technique for 16 years, beginning in Brazil, and now, here in London.

In spite of her extensive experience, Purnima embraces each massage with a renewed presence, using the breath to work in harmony with the rhythms of the body. She also performs Deep Tissue Massage, Rebirthing – Breathwork Therapy, Aromatherapy and Reiki. Her holistic treatments are an invitation to rejuvenate the body’s balance and vitality, with all the love and care that it deserves.
