Yoga With Nahid: Yoga for Life with Nahid de Belgeonne

Nahid de Belgeonne

‘Nahid has transformed my yoga practice. I always feel blissful after a class with her.’ – Gemma Arterton, Actress

‘Some classes are now so fast, they seem more like cardio work-outs,’ reflects Nahid de Belgeonne. ‘Yoga should be about quietening the mind and opening up the body.

‘My approach, which is based on the latest anatomical and movement thinking, is to use a slow pace that enables students to process instructions easily and to fully connect with their breath.’

Nahid has been teaching since 2010 and, complementing her one-to-one sessions, she takes two regular classes (Alignment-based Yoga Flow and Restorative Yoga) on Monday evenings in the wonderfully light, airy room over the Hampshire Hog on King Street, Hammersmith.

‘I have 12 people in each class, so everyone receives hands-on attention. Also, I always encourage the use of props and never force students’ bodies into unnatural poses, so both classes (the first is 50% off for new clients) are suitable for complete yoga beginners as well as the more experienced.’

Cultivating strength, flexibility and awareness, Alignmentbased Yoga is perfect for those seeking a moment of stillness away from the stresses and strains of modern life. Restorative yoga is designed to release tension in muscles and joints in supported poses, so it’s ideal for anyone who sits hunched over a computer or sports players with tight muscles.

In the New Year (16 January) Nahid, who has lived in W6 for 18 years, will also be teaching two special workshops. ‘In the first, Yoga for Beginners, I’ll introduce all the core poses and in the other, Restorative Yoga for Better Sleep, the poses and breathing techniques that can improve sleep,’ she says.

Also, for those wishing to take their practice deeper, in September Nahid will be leading a group to Spain where the daily routine will include five hours of yoga. ‘I would love anyone who, hitherto, might have thought yoga was not for them to come along,’ adds Nahid. ‘Equally, if you’ve been to yoga before, I can offer a different method that will help you feel more at ease in your breath and body. My teaching is about yoga for life – it’s yoga for longevity.’
