Simon Hoten

Simon has been practising & studying yoga since 2003 and teaching since 2010. As a yoga teacher he is British Wheel of Yoga accredited. He is also a qualified meditation teacher and certified iRestâ„¢ Teacher (iRest yoga nidra / Guided meditation)

Simon started his personal meditation practise with a 10 day silent Vipassana meditation retreat in New Zealand in March 2003. Following this revelatory experience, he went to my first yoga class a few days later, with the primary intention of improving my flexibility so that he could sit more comfortably during meditation. However at my very first class he became intrigued about the physical yoga practise as well as meditation and this soon developed into the passion that it is today.

Simon`s teaching style is one of emphasis on the breath, healthy alignment, flow of movement, building strength & flexibility, whilst also giving an opportunity for deep relaxation. He aims for all his classes to be open and friendly whilst also being focused. He is very keen to share the benefits of private / one on one teaching, having personally seen the depth in his own practise develop following such a setting.

As a yoga teacher he comes with 25 years of experience of a fast-paced, city working-life and all the pressures, expectations and challenges that this lifestyle brings. Simon has seen the positives that yoga can bring first hand including supporting improved focus and energy as well as helping alleviate symptoms of stress and supporting improved sleep patterns particularly after long periods of travelling. With a regular asana practise, Simon has also significantly benefited from improved posture, flexibility and movement in his body where there were restrictions, particularly following the effects of a severe femur fracture in his 20`s and subsequent 12 month recovery period in hospital.

Yoga is more of a journey than a destination, a pathway of continued growth and learning. Simon takes great joy in sharing his knowledge and experiences with his students and is extremely grateful to those who have shared theirs with me, particularly Donna Farhi, James Reeves, Jane Kersel, Kate Ellis, Anna Ashby, Carlos Pomeda, Swami Saradananda, Bridget Woods Kramer & Chris Swain.
