My name is Uyên Vū (pronounced Wee-en Voo) and I’m from Vietnam. Amongst other things, I bring to the UK with me 15 years experience of learning and practicing yoga & meditation. I run classes at my private studio in Ascot, in schools, companies and community events too.
At adults sessions, I teach resilience & sustainable yoga with mindful movements, slow breathing & meditation practice. I aim to help you to really become aware of your own body, breathe well, become stronger and move well in your everyday life. I include meditation in every class to help bring a sense of calm and peace to help you to enjoy life in whatever state you are. Classes are structured to be engaging, friendly & accessible and in a relaxed atmosphere with clear, simple explanations & full of joy.
At our yoga and meditation sessions for children & teenagers, my aim is to create a place where they feel safe, secure, love, nourished, supported. A place where through their direct experience of yoga and meditation, they learn more about their own body, breathing, feelings and thoughts. A place where they build their own confidence and become better able to live a happy and positive life; where they learn to look after their own well-being and also to care for things and people around them. A place they feel they have all the resources they need and their own essential tool kit which is there for them to use as they go through their life in school, at home and out in the world. The skills are helpful for them as they are going through a life which can so easily make them anxious and stressed. A place to learn and practice and build their self-calming, self-esteem, self-enquiry, self-exploration, self-discipline and self-awareness.
I am happy and open to any enquiry about teaching yoga and meditation for children, teenagers, and adults from one-to-one or in group, in schools, at my studio in Ascot or at a place of your choosing. For exciting updates about yoga classes, delicious Asian recipes, or some interesting practice, please like my Facebook page – Uyen Yoga, send me a message, email me or come & meet me in Ascot.
Have a lovely day and I look forward very much to seeing you!
*** In Vietnam, I practised Ananda Marga Yoga – connecting mind & body & soul - with Mrs Pham Ngoc Khanh Kalyanii - and Mrs Cuu Nguyen Karuna and I still get frequently support from these two amazing teachers. I am a qualified specialist yoga teacher for children with Yoga Bananas and I trained with Sam Rao in the UK.
I continue to deepen my learning every day in topics that help examine children and adults mental and physical state such as mental well-being, trauma, human body science, sustainable & movement science, pain science, natural & functional breathing, and recovery after injury from great teachers from all over the world. Every day I learn and practice meditation inspired by Thich Nhat Hanh, one of the world’s most respected people teaching and bringing meditation to life.
