About Shaka Lish
I have been practicing yoga for almost 15 years and involved in psychic and spiritual healing for almost 12. My yoga practice has provided a foundation and container for me through my continued spiritual and self development.
Yoga had an unexpected and profound effect on my life and my journey with it has become progressively more dedicated and involved. My study, practice and discovery of yoga continues and could be described as a process of being, rather than becoming, as it teaches us to shed layers that inhibit our ability to see and accept ourselves as we are, rather than what we think we ought or want to be.
My personal practice is Ashtanga, and I have studied with senior and certified teachers Elinore Burke, Kristina Karitinou, Hamish Hendry and Ryan Speilman. My current teacher is Corrie Ananda. My training is in Hatha yoga and in 2017 I graduated from SOAS after completing MA Traditions of Yoga and Meditation (with distinction). Alongside Ashtanga, I often also practice Iyengar and both of these schools of yoga influence and inform my own teaching style.
In addition to teaching yoga, I have been offer intuitive tarot readings, energetic healing and holistic massage. I work intuitively and with spirit and the ancestral and angelic realms to help you connect to the divine intelligence of your own body, which aids in offering you guidance and healing on your soul journey and life path.
I’ve always been intrigued by Eastern and Western philosophy and have studied extensively and woven this knowledge experientially into my own life. Yoga is an ancient practice and I believe a self-technology that allows us to reconnect to our natural state of bliss. It is a holistic practice that recognises the importance and balance of the mind, the body and the soul.
Often, there is not a definitive line between the results of my work as a teacher and therapist. When working with you as a teacher, my aim is to build strength, openness and balance within the body as well as the mind. When working with you as a healer, my aim to allow you to be present, feel held and provide a space for you to explore your inner world more deeply, as well as attuning your physical and energetic body. Both allow for a process of reflection, somatic experience and inner connection.
Additionally I am a creative and also happy to share my music and photography.
I'm passionate about sharing yoga and other holistic and healing practices and making them accessible to everyone. I work with mixed ability groups and individuals and tailor my teaching to suit my students needs and goals. My job as a teacher and healer is to guide, strengthen and encourage you on your own journey of self-discovery.
