Basia Zieniewicz
I am a fully qualified and insured Yoga Instructor. After almost 20 years of practice, I began an 18-month teaching diploma training under Sevanti at Unity Yoga in 2019 and completed more than 400 hours of various trainings since. Beginning my yoga journey in 1999, I've found my practice to be an incredibly powerful tool for support and positive transformation in my life. I've practiced and studied with teachers from various styles and traditions but I consider my practice and sharing to be post-lineage. I endeavour to share yoga practices in an inclusive, accessible and non-hierarchical way which respects your own inner wisdom and natural rhythmic cycles. I embrace the role of a guide in the realms of both tenderness and resilience, softness and strength, in what I like to call “subtle activism” and am inspired by embodiment practices. I like to slow things down and I encourage this at every opportunity. My approach emphasizes nurturing an inquisitive awareness of the body, mind, and spirit. I aim to be playful in my devotion and facilitation, interweaving my various yoga trainings, esoteric practices, and transpersonal psychology. I like to focus on honesty and introspection in practice, guiding yogis to connect deeply with themselves to discard the superficial and delve into the breath to clear the mind & steer it towards clarity. I am passionate to guide towards cultivating a more sensitive connection to the subtle cues within and outside the body in order to align you with your most unique compass code. It's my firm belief that our duty is to discover what inspires us so we can be bold and share our sparkle in this world. In addition to my initial teacher training certificate, I see myself as an ongoing student of yoga, inspired by many brilliant teachers, and have trained under Dr Kumar in Traditional Vedic yoga, Uma Dinsmore Tuli in Yoga Nidra, WeEvolve and Katonah yoga under Selena Gareffino, as well as yoga for children with Zen Kids and Trauma-Sensitive Foundation with Centre for Trauma and Embodiment. With a degree in arts education and an accredited and certified self-leadership coach, My post-graduate therapeutic trainings include Integrative Arts, Psychosynthesis and Grofian Psychedelic and Breathwork psychological models, being an ongoing student of spiritual psychology since 2020. I specialise in supporting and integrating spiritual emergence and emergencies. A humbled co-parent to our avant-garde yoga hub in East London, Yoga In the Stars, where we embody the philosophy of being a "merging of the emerging," and space for continuous learning, community and growth. I offer 121 coaching packages, yoga sessions, yoga nidra and am in the process of creating an online mentorship program to create a Masterpiece of Life.

A combination of East meets West. Shaped by teachings drawn from Integral, Traditional Vedic, and modern lineages. The mystical, philosophical, and the science-based. Expect mindful movement, an enquiry into organic, natural movement; moving inwards through focused awareness to then open outwards into a spectrum of authentic yogic postures with sensitivity and strength. The heart of this practice is about ‘being with oneself’, letting go and enjoying the process of unfolding rather than judging or forcing. Each class will be shaped by a different theme in response to either the time of day, element, season, lunar cycle, or energy, and your guide's curiosity.
