Effie’s love for yoga started almost 15 years ago at a yoga camp with her mum :) she was mainly not impressed and was busy competing with everyone else in the room at who is better at yoga. But there was something in that room that clearly made a deep impression on her as she continued to follow that yoga path ever since.
She studied at Israel, India, and the UK, diving in and out of different styles such as Iyengar, Vinyasa Flow, Hot Yoga, Yin Yoga, Hatha and Ashtanga. She qualified as a Hatha yoga teacher in 2015 but felt like she kinda hit a wall and was looking for new inspiration, this is where Vajrasati Yoga came into the picture.
‘I feel like I see yoga with an inquisitive student mind again, I feel like Vajrasati had revolutionised how I see yoga and changed not only the way that I teach but the way that I practise. I feel like yoga is home again.’
Effie is also an acupuncturist (BSc (hons), LicAc, MBAcC) and a massage therapist (deep tissue, pregnancy, Thai). She is also the proud mother of ‘About Balance’ Brighton’s only Low-cost, fair-trade wellbeing centre.
