Hello, my name is Olga Oakenfold. I have been teaching yoga for the last 20 years and have been studying with well known, influential yoga teachers from the UK and America. My style of yoga is influenced by different yoga traditions and combines the traditional yoga with the alignment-based yoga. This creates an inclusive, calming class helping participants to become stronger, more flexible, and more confident in their body and mind.
I teach a variety of Yoga Classes and Workshops spanning all levels of ability and ages. Yoga classes take place online, at locations around Eastbourne, including Sports Clubs, Yoga Studios, and outdoors in Gildredge Park during the Summer Months.
I like my students to be inspired and to learn, to be open-minded and to explore all possibilities, to feel the connection between body, mind and breath, to grow and be creative with new ideas.
During Lockdown all my classes were online via Zoom platform and now I continue to teach regular classes and events via Zoom. Also, I have a great collection of recorded classes in my Yoga Video Club.
“I was able to do ALL of the movements in your class and my back felt absolutely wonderful afterwards, the best it has felt for a year or more… thank-you so much for the wonderful class, I enjoyed every moment and felt able-bodied for the first time in ages!” – Paul from London.
"Yoga has been a lifelong practice for me. Attending Olga's classes in recent years has resulted in me, not only maintaining flexibility but gaining energy and physical strength. Olga's calm, warm disposition and joyful, vitality-filled method of teaching, also keeps me of happy and positive mind." – Ann from Eastbourne.
“Thanks for great workshop today. When I arrived my back was quite stiff and uncomfortable (and I thought 'oh dear' when you said we were doing back bends today!) but with your detailed advice and me being very careful with my alignment my back feels great now!” - Brenda from Eastbourne.
"The sessions are varied and well planned.
It is lovely to feel a sense of calm and focus especially at this time.
It is so nice to have a connection with friends all practicing at the same time in their own homes. Thank you Olga for these fantastic sessions I really appreciate what you are doing.
Wishing you good health and all best wishes,” - Tracey from Eastbourne.
