Yazmin McCoy

As someone who despite having a love for yoga for many years felt anxious and intimidated by yoga instructors & studios. Yazmin wanted to create a safe space for everyone in her classes to be themselves, to feel confident in their bodies and within their practice. Inspiring a positive relationship with movement and flow Yazmin believes there is balance both on and off the mat and doesn’t take herself too seriously, so expect a few giggles along the way.

Yazmin’s love for movement has always been a part of her life, from dance, athletics, contact sports, to yoga & pilates. Her love for yoga grew during her dance course when she was 16 and 10 years later she decided to take a trip to Bali to do her training. Since then she has had the opportunity of not only teaching yoga to adults but has also spent half a decade teaching children from 18 months – 11 years old, parent & baby & antenatal.

“A lot of us start to look within during our adult years and realise there is a lot to unlearn due to a lack of tools we had as children. Being able to pass on mindfulness, meditation & movement to children for the coming generations is a blessing, as they will be the ones looking after us when we grow old”.

Living in a city it can be hard to find time to slow down. So even just for an hour it takes time to let go, to get out of the mind and into the body, as Yazmin always says the hardest part is coming to class, moving your body is the easy part. There is comfort in finding a tribe of like minded people, being able to relax, destress, realise we’re all going through it together and the world doesn’t feel as lonely and the practice doesn’t feel as intimidating.
