Heather Elton

I am a yogini, yoga teacher, photographer and part-time writer who lives in London. I love to travel and my yogic path has taken me to sacred places in India and Nepal in pursuit of yogic philosophy and Buddhist wisdom. My photography and writing is featured on this website, as well as information about my yoga practice and teaching.


I teach Astanga and Vinyasa Flow Yoga, as well as technical Hatha Yoga inspired by BKS Iyengar in London. I’ve taught international yoga retreats and workshops for the past twelve years, including the innovative Yoga Adventure in Nepal where we study yoga philosophy ‘on the road’ within the cultural context of living Tantra. I also offer 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training courses in London, Goa and Nepal.


I’n not a Selfie yogi. My aim is to reveal the spiritual path underlying the practice and the technology to stabilize the mind, so we can shed the veils of Maya perpetuated by the ego, glimpse at our true nature and liberate ourselves from suffering. My approach is a deep physical and psychological practice that moves beyond a mere physical experience to make the spiritual yogic inquiry authentic and relevant to real life.


The ultimate aim of yoga is love, liberation and freedom. Moksha.
