“I have nothing but high praise for Shannel. She has a very patient and calm demeanour, and her passion is evident and inspiring. Her meditation classes are wonderful.  I felt so relaxed and at peace after. It also provided me the best sleep I have had in a while. Thanks to the class I have a new-found love and appreciation for meditation.” Manisha J, Yoga and Meditation

“I have attended Yoga and meditation classes taught and guided by Shan at Yoga Vida for over 5 years now! I find the combination of the teaching style which incorporates a number of different types of yoga, the adaptations for all levels, the personalised attention to keep improving the posture, the use of aromatherapy oils, and Shan’s calm and soothing aura and voice makes these classes like no other. The night meditation classes have often even sent me to sleep! If you have a hectic life, struggle to relax, want to focus more on your personal wellbeing, or simply just really enjoy yoga and meditation, I would highly recommend trying and committing to these classes. Shan does not rush people or make you feel like a number. She truly cares about each individual’s needs and progress. Jayna K, Yoga and Meditation

Highly recommend the Mind, Breath & Meditation Masterclass. I always struggle to switch off and my mind is always working in overdrive. This has really helped me. Shannel Patel is an amazing instructor. I can’t wait for this evening’s session!” Reena J, Mind, Breath & Meditation Masterclass

“My 2 daughters (age 8 and 10) and I look forward to starting the online classes again. We started after late October last year during the lockdown. I have to say it was everything I could have hoped for and more. Totally felt relaxed ? and energised in a refreshing, uplifting way by the end of the session. My daughters really engaged well to the instructions. They felt relaxed, refreshed and most importantly, happily ready for bed enjoying a great night’s sleep. The online sessions work so well as we can adapt our room for maximum relaxation, learn how to keep calm, self-aware on our body and keep focus. Especially, now more than ever whilst juggling work and home schooling, really appreciated. Really recommend it….. Thank you so much once again Shannel Patel. Looking forward to the next class! Xx” Manisha P, Mind, Breath & Meditation Masterclass

“Like most people, I have a lot of stress in my life and genuinely struggle to relax my mind. I’ve never really bought into yoga/meditation. I’ve tried a few classes in the past and just felt it wasn’t me. I went to one of Shannel’s classes on a whim. Really glad I did! Her yoga is a really good combination of techniques. I felt stretched and relaxed but still felt I’d had a good workout. Her meditation was great – and I surprised myself by being able to consciously relax and control my thoughts. It sounds cheesy but honestly I feel it’s changed my day to day to life – I am much more ‘mind aware’ and I’m learning to let the stresses not control my life! Thanks Shannel ? Priya Panda, Yoga & Meditation

“I recently attended Yoga Vida’s meditation session. I’ve never experienced meditation before and it was conveniently on a Sunday evening so I thought why not give it a go. Shannel was inviting, clear in her explanations and most of all calm. Her soothing voice helped me to relax and gain the full benefits of her session from the comfort of my own home. What a great way to end a busy week. I will be joining you again – thank you!” Zobia C, Meditation

“What a great mother and baby yoga class! I look forward to going each week to have a good stretch and feel super relaxed after. Would definitely recommend the class to others.” Jules M, Mum & Baby Yoga

“I have been attending Mum and baby yoga with Shan since my little boy was 7weeks old, and we have loved every single class!! I feel so much stronger since giving birth and it’s a wonderful way to strengthen the bond with your baby. I can’t rate highly enough !!” Cara C, Mum & Baby Yoga

“What would I have done without the Saturday morning pregnancy yoga sessions. Shannel is amazing, I feel so much more relaxed and prepared both mentally and physically for labour. If you haven’t tried pregnancy yoga you need to with Shannel xxx” Sanae T, Pregnancy Yoga

“I have really enjoyed attending pregnancy yoga. It has given me time to relax, stretches to help with pregnancy related pains, and great tips for labour. Thank you Shannel xx” Hannah S, Pregnancy Yoga

“I’ve only been to a few pregnancy sessions and have learnt so much from Shannel. She is really calm and patient and helps as and when needed. On several occasions I have used some of the positions at home and it has helped a great deal in reducing pregnancy pain. The best decision I’ve made this pregnancy to look after my body, mind and my baby. Thank you.” Tina, Pregnancy Yoga

“I was lucky enough to win a chakra healing session!! Amazing experience definately recommend !! …. I’m a novice to these things, Shannel made me feel welcomed, explained every step clearly and I felt calm and comfortable. The feeling of calm and serenity I experienced words cannot begin to describe. Thank you for letting me be the lucky person.” Naina V, Chakra Healing

“I had a one to one chakra/ crystal yoga session with Shannel. I did not know what to expect but Shannel’s knowledgable and insightful explanations throughout the session were very good. I felt uplifted at the end of the session and would recommend this to everyone who needs help balancing their chakras.” Kavita S, Chakra Healing

“Sinking deeper into a pose doesn’t mean it’s more difficult, it is the attempt to greater unify the pose and in so doing unify your body and mind. This is what Shannel is helping people do.” Alex G, Private Yoga

“Shannel is incredibly skilled, has such a calming aura and is extremely patient whilst artfully maneuvering us into the many yoga poses! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.” Priya Phillips, Private Yoga
