Yoga Sadhana

Yoga Sadhana is Isabelle and Yogi Lea.

We have both had many years of yoga experience before becoming teachers of yoga. So we can bring together our personal practice and all we have learned as teachers to guide our students in their own exploration of yoga.

We have been teaching regular classes, workshops and courses in Dorchester and Weymouth for the last ten years. Most recently at the Dorchester Yoga and Therapy Centre and also at our comfortable and well equipped home yoga studio in West Dorset. Before this we lived in South West London and taught in some of the premier health clubs and yoga studios of London.



Isabelle has been practising Yoga for the past thirty years and has been teaching since 2003. Her teacher training was initially with Godfrey Devereux and then with Jenny Beeken of the Inner Yoga Trust.  She holds teaching diplomas with the British Wheel of Yoga, Windfire Yoga and the Independent Yoga Network. She is trained in Yoga Therapy with the Devon School of Yoga & has completed the BritishWheel of Yoga Meditation Module. Isabelle is also a BWY Foundation Course tutor.

Her style of teaching includes dynamic sequences as well as held postures and breath awareness. This all within a flowing structure that encourages students to focus internally bringing a deep sense of completeness and relaxation. 

Isabelle also teaches private classes which may be useful if you are new to yoga or requiring a more therapeutic yoga practice.
