What students say?
Aslihan is a truly wonderful yoga teacher! She teaches with such preciseness, care and attention, walking around to check and adjust your posture if needed so that you really get the best out of your practice. Aslihan has a lovely ability to make everyone in the class feel welcome and I know I'm not the only one who walks into class feeling a bit weary but leaves feeling so much more balanced (physically, mentally and emotionally) and rejuvenated!

PROGRESIVE HATHA YOGA
I teach Hatha Yoga in a unique progressive scheme with the focus of building up strength in the body, mind & heart, and without using up body's energetic resources excessively. We follow and complete well themed sequences where each one of them unfolds in stages and in consecutive weeks to achieve solid aims & objectives that suit both - those new to yoga and those with experience on & off the mat. By following the aims of the yogic principles and the yogic branches and aspiring to experience them through safe, continually and gradually developing stages, practice becomes mindful, progressive, regulated and beneficial for all, not only for a short term but in a long term too. As a final result, you leave the sessions with an improved strength & flexibility, calm and clarity in mind and with a greater sense of balance, harmony and connection.
My mission is to promote the six dimensions of human-wellbeing (physical, emotional,intellectual, social, occupational, and spiritual) through a diverse range of disciplines, and to make relaxation and holistic wellness more accessible for everyone. To achieve this, I help you defeat the negative side effects of life pressure by building an integrated sense of wellness and fulfillment in your daily life. Therefore, alongside of yoga & mindfulness practices, I am also keen to add on other holistic health applications into your experiences with me. Now, you can make a booking for different wellness packages including Indian Head Massage (Head, Neck, Shoulders & Upper Back), Thai Yoga Massage, Ayurvedic Constutitional Consultation, Mindful Living Life Style Mentoring or Therapeutic Self-Care Immersions.
VITALITY & LONGEVITY
RELAX & RENEW
RELAX & RENEW® RESTORATIVE YOGA
As we know, many diseases these days are stress related. Restorative yoga balances a hectic and stressful modern lifestyle and has an enormous capacity to heal physical and mental effects of everyday stress. Restorative yoga accelerates the body's natural healing process. During deep relaxation, all the systems of the body benefit from the practice. Restorative yoga postures help us learn to relax our overstimulated mind & body and to rest deeply and completely to achieve physical, mental and emotional ease. They are specially designed to guide you to feel FULL and WHOLE again through breath trainings, restorative yoga and meditation practices. By practising active rest deliberately, you are able to become your best-self, sustain your energy, boost your creativity in every area of your life, enhance your parenting and your relationships with others and lengthen your career without feeling burned out at all.
YOGA FOR WOMEN
