Aram Raffy

Power Yoga

Like many, Aram came to Yoga as therapy for serious knee and back injuries and was struck by the transformative qualities of the practice; both physical and mental. Especially the magical effects of the breath. Aram completed his teacher training with inspirational yogi Doug Swenson and continues to regularly practice with and assist his longterm teacher Stewart Gilchrist; he is greatly influenced by his teachings of Satyagraha. He is open to and explores all styles and methods and has travelled and meditated extensively in search of amazing teachers to help expand his experience. His classes are dynamic, challenging, filled with good humour and all inclusive. Vinyasa krama makes him happy. Maintain the breath, maintain the flow. The rest is practice. He continues to work diligently as a perpetual student of Yoga.

A native Londoner, Aram teaches locally and internationally to students and practitioners from all walks of life. Teaching a fun, uplifting style of Astanga vinyasa-krama. A keen student of philosophy, psychology, anthropology and anatomy, he seeks to pass on the spiritual essence of Yoga through a powerful physical practice, deep conscious breath-work and meditation. Classes are infused with music, touch and an unmistakeable sense of humour.

The practice is dynamic, challenging and all inclusive. His nature is generous, encouraging and he seeks to help all students to harness their deeper potential.


I love how he pays attention and makes sure to assist you on both sides of a pose, making sure you are balanced and stretched equally on both sides!
