Stewart Gilchrist | Climate Change & Yoga
Part of the Yoga and Ecology Festival, September 2015
Stewart Gilchrist is one of London’s most popular yoga teachers leading inspirational classes packed with long-time practitioners and conducting annual teacher trainings. His soft Scottish accent and contagious laughter conceal the fierceness of what is to come. The asana is incredibly swift and intense but Stewart’s charisma, knowledge and discourse will carry you through the challenge, adding a newfound strength and stamina to your yoga practice.
After working as a teacher and completing his legal studies, Stewart literally fell into the world of yoga when he broke his back and embarked on a long process of rehabilitation through intensive Ashtanga yoga. He studied yoga and he began teaching the Jivamukti method in the early naughties. As his practice and knowledge flourished, so did his teaching style, eventually morphing into the exquisite, energetic practice of Yogasana. He is a Registered Senior Teacher with Yoga Alliance and leads annual retreats in India.
