Traditional Yoga and Meditation

Yoga helps to improve quality of life by cultivating the mind, body and breath. Here I will teach you traditional Yoga and Meditation techniques as taught to me at the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Forest Academy and Yogic exercises as taught by Bishnu Ghosh and Bikram Choudhury.

Yoga is for everyone. Yoga is not about being athletic and flexible. Yoga is about reconnecting to yourself and learning to cultivate more energy in the body for a more centred and focused mind. It is a lifetime practice. Everyone can practice Yoga.

"Yoga is a way to self-discovery and, for many people, is a physical, mental and spiritual aid.
Yoga is therefore therapeutic." - Gouri Shankar Mukerji

About Me

My name is Ted Davis, I was born in 1971, I came to Yoga at the age of 30, and immediately found that a regular Yoga practice helped to alleviate many sufferings such as fear, anxiety, depression, lethargy and tiredness. I found that regular practice of Yoga Asana quickly proved itself to be a road to a more healthy and natural lifestyle. In my practice, l still find the benefits of Yoga to be many, as I continue to transform physically, mentally, and spiritually with each moment of practice.

As a Yoga Instructor, I completed the 500 hour Hatha Yoga training with Bikram Choudhury, and later completed the 4 week TTC course at the Sivananda Vedanta center in Quebec Canada. I feel lucky and blessed that it is my Dharma to share and teach Yogic techniques as I have learned from the Sivananda and Bishnu Ghosh tradition.

Class Descriptions

Traditional 26&2
Originating from West Bengal, this class consists of a series of 26 postures and 2 breathing excercises suitable for beginners, but challenging for all. This class will improve your strength and flexibility while increasing energy and vitality. Normally done in a hot room, the online class will be altered slightly to compensate for this. The class will be 75 minutes and will leave you feeling energised and revitalised.

Sivananda Open Class
A classic series of Hatha Yoga, this meditative class includes Mantra, Pranayama breathing, Asanas, and a guided relaxation. This 90 minute class is energetic yet relaxing, with a focus on meditation and therapeutic postures. As the class is online, it is more of a guided practice and some experience of Yoga is recommended.

Beginners Class
This weekly session will take a slow pace, and introduce you to a foundation of principles that will allow you to build a regular Yoga practice. Elements like proper breathing, proper technique and alignment in postures will be carefully examined in aim of working towards the Sivananda Open Class, or any other Vinyasa, or Hatha class you may find yourself in.

Mantra and Yoga Nidra
This class will introduce the practice of Mantra followed by a guided Yoga Nidra session. Mantra is a technique using Sanskrit Chanting to access a deeper level of meditation. Following the Mantra session, Yoga Nidra will help you to relax into a deep yogic sleep, where the body is fully relaxed, yet the mind remains active.

Meditation and Pranayama
This free online class will start your day right with Pranayama breathing exercises to energise you for the day, followed by a 15-20 minute guided or silent meditation that will help settle the mind. A regular meditation practice is a perfect way to meet the day calm and focused. (Available online only)

Preparing for an online class


Attending an online class poses some challenges, but with a few preparations, you'll be well on your way.

  • What equipment do I need?

    Your need a laptop or phone with internet connection, speaker and camera, along with a mat. The classes use ZOOM.

  • How much room do I need?

    Set yourself up with enough space that I can see you, and make sure there is good sound on your system to hear the instructions properly. If bandwidth is low, you can turn off the video and rely mostly on audio cues.

  • Where should I do the class?

    Be sure to be in a room that you won't be disturbed, pets and kids are lovely to have around, but often do their best to steal your attention while you're trying to focus!

  • What environment should it be?

    Set up your space relatively uncluttered to maintain a calm serenity in your practice.

  • Should I eat and drink before?

    It is best to practice on an empty stomach.

  • What do i need to do if attending the studio?

    You'll have to bring your own mat, and if you show any symptoms, please stay home and rest. Sanitizer spray and facilities are provided.

“Health is wealth, peace of mind is happiness, Yoga shows the way.”
