ABOUT THE PRESENTER
Margaux Lovett is an inspired yoga practitioner, yoga teacher, lecturer and qualified Occupational Therapist (OT) who has worked in the health industry for more than eight years.
Margaux’s hatha yoga journey started years ago in London where she made the decision to give yoga a go to balance out her fast paced city life and stressful job. Starting with a traditional Sivananda teaching she completed courses in asana, meditation, yogic psychology and an advanced diploma of yoga.
She is a lecturer at Moksha Yoga Academy where she teaches anatomy with insight into applying knowledge of the structure of the human body with yoga’s physical practices of asana, pranayama, sAvasana and meditation. She also has a sound understanding of the impact of injury and medical conditions on yoga practices.
Margaux teaches Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga and Vinyasa Flow as well as chair/gentle hatha yoga. Her teaching style is a balance of eastern yogic philosophy and psychology with a western focus of anatomical body alignment knowledge to help students learn about and experience their own bodies as well as to raise their awareness of the mind-body-spirit connection. With her OT background, Margaux is able to tailor classes to suit common occupational and lifestyle injuries and medical conditions. She believes that everyone should be able to have access to the wisdom, knowledge and inner peace that is yoga.
