About Jonelle: Be brave, be fierce, be free is Jonelle’s personal mantra and an invitation she extends to everyone who practices with her. An American living in London, Jonelle dabbled with Ashtanga in 2004 when she was pregnant with her daughter Francesca. After a long break from yoga, in 2011 she began practicing with a purpose. While going through a difficult divorce she found her yoga practice really helped her get her life back. It was liberating, invigorating and healing. In March 2014 she left London behind and went to India to train as an yoga teacher. She trained with The Yoga People run by Dulce Aguilar and Jamie Clarke for her 200 hour foundation course. She’s completed over 800 hours of training and is certified in Ashtanga, Hatha, Hot, Mandala, Qi Gong, Rocket, Vinyasa & Yin yoga. She teaches all over Central and South London. She also leads UK & International yoga retreats. Her classes are set to an urban sound track which is reflective of her roots and her passion for music, creativity and fluidity in life. From growing up in Philadelphia and living in DC and NYC she brings an international vibration and an authenticity into classes which are edgy and filled with a lot laughter. She enjoys teaching all age groups and firmly believes ‘Yoga is for EVERYBODY’.

About Kat: As a physics graduate and trained actress, making the transition to full time yoga teacher wasn't the obvious choice. However, it was after discovering a strong yang style of yoga in London, and then traveling to India to explore the lighter practice of Sivananda yoga that she realised what an integral part of her physical and mental wellbeing it had become. She then returned to India a year later to complete her 200hr Yoga Teacher Training in Ashtanga and Ashtanga Vinyasa (Rocket) with The Yoga People, who themselves were taught by Larry Schultz the pioneer of Rocket yoga. Katarina immediately began teaching yoga full time and by 2017 had completed 500hrs of advanced Teacher Training with her teachers Jamie and Dulce, The Yoga People, in Ashtanga, Rocket, Yin & Mandala Vinyasa. Katarina continues to build her advanced teacher training hours as expanding her knowledge, to pass on to her students is something she’s very passionate about. In 2018 she completed 50hrs of advanced adjusting and anatomy with Ambra Vallo. Katarina's public teaching schedule consists of a mixture of Rocket yoga and the Mandala model in her Vinyasa classes, working closely with chakra and elemental theories. In summer 2018 Katarina began co-teaching the 200hr Yoga Teacher Training with The Yoga People. Join Katarina at a studio in London or on one of her yoga retreats worldwide. Katarina is the co-owner of Kindred Yoga, a yoga studio in Deptford Southeast London, with her husband Julian. Katarina is a 500hr, Yoga Alliance approved, Registered Yoga Teacher. E-RYT 500.

About Soph: Sophies passion for cooking started at a young age. Growing up was spent cooking simple meals at home with her family. She spends a lot of her spare time sourcing seasonal and fresh produce at local markets, no matter where she is in the world, creating vibrant plant based dishes for herself, family and friends. Inspired by her travels, Sophie designs imaginative and vibrant dishes based on various cuisines and her own twist. Sophies core aim is to create colourful and flavour packed dishes that anyone and everyone can enjoy, whilst remaining healthy, wholesome and of course - tasty. By producing seasonal and local meals, Sophie aims to keep food waste to an absolute minimum and enjoys the challenge of using what she can get from about the world.

6 - 8.30pm: RELEASE YIN WITH THE MOON
(w/ Jamie Clarke, Jonelle Lewis & Carlos Mundalah)

Join us in a connection with the cosmic energy of the Aquarius Full Moon & Eclipse through movement & sound.

The intention of this event is connect to our bodies & voices to tune into cosmic order of the heavens to let go, expand and heal as a collective, as above so below.

Bring your intentions and things you are ready to release. 
There will be space to do this work in order to shift patterns and energy that are no longer useful in your life. 

Jonelle & Jamie will lead a workshop infused with elements from the Taoist, Tantric & Shamanic traditions. 
We will open the space to the Elements, and we will have a Moon Conversation and a Ceremony of letting go. 
We will then experience the release from a Physical perspective through Qi Gong that will move into Kriya, arriving to a movement of observation and peace through a Yin Yoga Class on Aquarius by Jamie Clarke. 

Carlos Mundalah will provide the magical soundscape for our journey.
