Sammy-Jo Scarbrough-Lang Teacher 

I began my yoga journey in 2009 practising Ashtanga Vinyasa and in 2016 I was introduced to breath work, kriyas and pranayama practice under the guidance of Vicky Shields (direct student of Sri OP Tiwariji). Through these practices I have developed a greater awareness of the effect the breath has on the mind and body. Through regular implementation of these practices I have developed a more rounded and nourishing personal yoga practice for the mind and body, which has improved my overall health and well-being.

I began my teaching journey in 2015 as I realised I wanted to share these great practices and benefits with others and following completion of my first 200 hours yoga teacher training I began to share my love of yoga to groups and individuals. My background as a Registered Nurse in Learning Disabilities has meant that through my work as an Assistant Director of Operations in Social Interest Company, I have been able to share techniques and practices with individuals with a variety of needs and those employed to support them, which has supported them to develop skills and build resilience in their daily life. I also enjoy sharing the practices and knowledge with my children, nieces, nephews and my grandchild bringing joy and techniques which are beneficial to living a balanced life.

As my learning has continued through additional training with a variety of practitioner, the exploration of the 8 limbs and philosophy of yoga I have been able to develop my yoga practice, with yoga being part of my day to day life. Only through my own experience of living and practicing yoga have I been able to share this knowledge and practices in a genuine and sincere way. 

Through my continued learning I  have also gained knowledge in regards to Ayurveda ~ Life Science, which has allowed me to implement Ayurvedic practices and lifestyle choices to help support my overall wellbeing. Additionally I have explored how through connecting with the cycle of the Moon, planets, the stars and by connecting with the energies of light and life force, we can further bring a more harmonious and intuitive way of healing and connecting with yourself, those around you, nature and the universe helping to create balance. 

Through my teaching I aim guide people through practices and knowledge to help gain greater awareness of themselves (supporting body and mind connection). By supporting people to work with the breath, safely finding alignment, stability and space within the body and mind we can find balance and focus both in our practice and day to day life.
