Kanga Yoga is an energetic, alignment?based flow yoga practice using music, gravity and breath to rediscover and rejuvenate the body and mind. The practice is inspired by the teachings of Swami Sivananda, Yogacharya B.K.S. Iyengar and Sri Krishna Pattabhi Jois, which adapts the practice to the individual. Each class deepens the student’s yoga practice, whilst providing a practical understanding of yoga and offering the opportunity to focus on specific postures, benefit alignment and breath control.
Kanga Yoga integrates sound, asana and mudra to bring the body and mind into balance and harmony. The music itself is Hatha Yoga Sadhana –the music vibrates and purifies the nadis which in turn awaken the psychic and spiritual powers that lay dormant.
Co-Founder of Kanga Studio, Emma teaches with enthusiasm, care and attention to detail. She brings knowledge gained from her own personal practice and provides strong encouragement and support in her classes. Emma’s Yoga practice has always been inspired by her Indian teachers of Yoga & Ayurveda. Since 2006, she has been travelling between India, Kenya and the UK. During her travels and studies of Ayurveda she grasped the essence of teaching according to one’s body type and dosha, and also the healing power music. Emma focuses on the energy of the students in her classes and incorporates elements of the different yoga practices with music into each class. Emma is dedicated and passionate about improving people’s lives and empowering communities through the teachings of Yoga & Ayurveda. She regularly returns to India to practice with her teachers at the Sivandana Kutir ashram, the Yoga Study Centre (Bramacharya Rudra Dev), Patanjala Yoga Kendran (Usha Devi) and Tattvaa Yogashala (Kamal Singh). Emma is now leading regular Kanga Yoga Teacher Training courses in India, Tanzania (including the Happy Yoga project with Marion Scheltema) and Kenya. She offers workshops, short courses and retreats in England, France, India, Kenya, Malawi, Tanzania, Senegal, online through Kanga Studio London and recently founded Kanga Studio Nairobi.
