Sarah Tilley – Yoga instructor

Sarah first came to yoga in 2002 upon the recommendation of her osteopath. From an introduction to it through the precision of the Lyengar method, Sarah found herself drawn gradually towards a stronger more dynamic practise and ultimately trained to become a teacher in 2008.

Yoga meaning Union, to draw together the mind and the body using the vehicle of the breath to do so. Whether we come to our mat with a tendency towards stiffness or flexibility through the practise we find more space physically. As we find more space within the body we find more space within the mind also. We find the gaps between our thoughts where there is peace and stillness to be found.

 

 

 

 

Ilana Kateb – Yoga instructor

Ilana Kateb is one of the yoga instructors at Reach Physiotherapy

Ilana was initially drawn to yoga as a way of relieving pain in her neck, shoulders and back following an injury, but it was the calming and energising effect of connecting the body with the breath that really captivated her interest.

She spent several years exploring various styles, including Hatha, Iyengar and Ashtanga before discovering the creative, dance-like nature of Vinyasa Flow yoga, which forms most of her practice today.

Fulfilling a long-standing desire to share the rewards of yoga with others, in 2016 she completed her 200hr teacher training with Vidya Heisel at Frog Lotus Yoga International in Spain. She now teaches regular yoga classes in Brighton and Hove, and loves to keep learning by frequently attending classes, workshops and further trainings.
