Yagga yo Lovers,

I'm Sanchia. I love being well, but I have a big problem with the term 'well being' and 'self lurve'. Instead I believe in being your own bad gyal (or) badman, bawse of your own life and hero, and I believe that YOU should too. I try to live every day with this in mind, being good to myself in every way and proving that you can do ish you're own way. In fact it's the ONLY way to do anything.  

I've had my fingers in nuff pies... Mentor, youth theatre director, drama facilitator, public speaker, project coordinator, runner and now yoga teacher. The last few years I've been spending a lot of my time collecting bling (medals), wearing lipstick and Lycra, rocking an Afro, styling friends and trying to perfect* my down facing dawg. 

*Bun that idea. There is no such thing! 

A natural, relaxed teacher... it was great to breathe through Badu to Bonobo to Dilla, rather than pseudo spiritual gongs and pan pipe music - perfect.

Yogahood, was born out of frustration and passion! It promotes yoga any time, any place, any body. I've met so many people that feel displaced and under represented in yoga, or are under the impression that the community is somewhat closed or elitist, or that you have to be a certain type, perform acrobatic style moves to be "doing yoga". My message is you really don't. "Look at me!" 

Expect a fiyah playlist, with tunes you might be more used to in the club (yeah I said it), but a class led with love and one rule, to not take it too seriously and know you're a badass for just showing up! 

A lovely flow and great, clear instructions that blend with the seductive selection of beats and smooth grooves.
