yeotown + the royal parks foundation presents:
Our annual well-being series in collaboration with The Royal Parks Foundation is back for summer 2017. Our inspirational well-being classes are held fortnightly on Monday evenings at an idyllic haven in the heart of Hyde Park. From yoga or mindfulness masterclasses, to creating your own seasonal healthy eating plan, there’s something for everyone.
In our present culture, silence is becoming somewhat of an endangered species. Yet the benefits have never been more needed, especially amidst the busyness of city living. Join coach and psychotherapist Kelly Hearn as she leads a group walking meditation through some of the lesser known parts of Hyde Park. This is a time to slow down and enjoy one of London’s most beautiful settings while sharing group silence. An opportunity to ‘check-out to check-in’, with ourselves and with nature.
There’s nothing quite like practicing yoga out in the open air and this session is guaranteed to leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated!
All our well-being sessions are £15 person and take place from 6.30 pm – 8 pm at our eco-building in the heart of Hyde Park.

WONDER & WATER JUNE 14-27, 2017
Wonder & Water is an exhibition of Tanya Kazeminy’s beautiful Water Films and a genuinely cool experience. It’s only purpose is to make people happier, more connected to themselves and ultimately more loving in their worlds. You can drop in for 15 minutes of calm during gallery hours (1300-1900 every day) or book online for yoga, meditation or workshops. However long you stay, you won’t want to leave. Feeling this peaceful is addictive!
The walls and floors are dappled with projections and the whole space is sounded with a gorgeous water composition. The effect is an oasis of calm in the heart of Soho. The feeling of peace in the gallery is so palpable that it really only takes 5 minutes of immersion before you will feel your heart rate slow and your breathing deepen.
Within the exhibition are a series of Help Heal The World workshops. They will combine yoga, meditation and – once you are truly out of your head and into your heart – powerful teachings from powerful teachers about how we can all help heal the world, very simply, through love.

TEACHER TRAINING WITH MERCEDES NOV 2017 – MAY 2018
After taking the past 3 years off from my YTT to focus on my own studies of Coaching and Coaching Psychology at the University of Cambridge, I am excited to be planning a new Yoga Teacher Training for 2017/18 in London, England.
Absolutely. Positively. Vinyasa Flow Yoga Teacher Training is a 200hr Yoga Alliance (US) registered course. This unique programme is the first YTT of its kind to combine both Vinyasa Flow Yoga and Positive Psychology, and utilises a strengths based approach to both teaching and practising Vinyasa Flow Yoga. This includes learning how to enhance and use key character strengths such as resilience, courage, curiosity and perspective to inspire both the student’s practice and the teacher’s teachings. Working hard to identify the teacher’s own inherent strengths and unique teaching voice , there will be a strong focus on intelligent and creative sequencing that takes into account the students and their needs and not a teacher’s pre-planned class or agenda.
This 7 month 200hr training will cover aspects such as key postures, alignment, sequencing, simple mantras, anatomy, props and a plethora of effective enhancements and adjustments. There will be discussions and discourse around the roots of yoga, taking into account the hotly debated more recent discoveries and theories around yoga and its history put forth by respected scholars and historians alike. You will learn about the many life enhancing facets of the science of Positive Psychology including easy to apply yet effective tools and exercises. This course will also provide space for coaching one another using various positive psychology approaches and how to use them with your students. It will explore the seminal work of Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi including his findings around “Flow” (a highly focused mental state) and its connection to authentic happiness and a life of flourishing.
