Maxine began her teaching career in English and Drama. She has studied yoga with BKS Iyengar since 1968 and holds an advanced certificate in this system. She has been teaching since 1971 and believes in the power of yoga as a system of movement that awakens the inner potential and creative power within the individual. The hallmark of Iyengar Yoga is precision, attention to detail and concentration which brings about bodily alignment and mental clarity. In recent years Maxine has studied Pilates and Astanga Yoga to extend her understanding of movement for the human body through which we can express our creative energy. While she visits the East End frequently and is here with us Mid July through August, she also operates her own studio, CHELSEA YOGA, in London
