Mala recently returned to England after living and studying in India for three years. Combined with her extensive time working in Denmark and Zanzibar, she has a fascinating mix of different experiences and cultures and professional fields. In India she added exponentially to her skills with a 500 hour, intensive, Yoga teacher training course, with International Yoga Alliance ambassador Dinesh Shastri in Rishikesh. She spent 18 months at Yog Ganga Centre for Yoga Studies in Rajpur, with teachers Ravij and Swati Chanchani. She completed a 300 hour Yoga Therapy training in Goa with the Kashmir Shivaism Yoga School.
Mala came to Therapy Yoga because of her own injuries: she started to study and change her own yoga practice. She learned that not only could she fix her body through therapeutic yoga techniques but the body could actually heal and rejuvenate itself. Mala brings compassion, empathy and knowledge to her students, seeing herself as a guide to help them self-heal. Mala helps her students navigate the complex, all encompassing, ancient wisdom and science of yoga, applying these teachings in a modern setting.

‘Yoga therapy is a self-empowering process, where the care-seeker, with the help of the Yoga therapist, implements a personalized and evolving Yoga practice, that not only addresses the illness in a multi-dimensional manner, but also aims to alleviate his/her suffering in a progressive, non-invasive and complementary manner. Depending upon the nature of the illness, Yoga therapy can not only be preventative or curative, but also serve a means to manage the illness, or facilitate healing in the person at all levels.’ TKV Desikachar & Kausthub Desikachar

Amazing workshops and classes, they’ve really helped my back pain and everything we did was adapted for my back issues. Mala really knows what she’s doing and understands the body, pain and how everything we do is connected. Helped with my overall wellbeing too, I’d highly recommend her for anyone that’s suffering with pain or want to look after themselves.
I have worked with Mala 1:2:1 and in her small group classes. Mala’s practice has been the most meaningful and restorative experience for me. Her soothing voice, deep knowledge and practice experience have allowed me to experience the physical and emotional benefits of yoga.
I have had issues impacting my immune system for a long time. I have done a variety of things to boost my immune system and it is my belief that working with Mala has assisted in integrating what I have been doing by connecting mind, body and spirit.
I cannot recommend Mala highly enough and am hoping that we can keep her busy so she doesn’t disappear off to India for years!
I would recommend Mala’s Yoga and Meditation class and one to one yoga therapy to everyone who has any bodily pain or simply want to feel energised with your body. Mala’s very skilled, knowledgable and understands her profession, how she works with your body and mind through Yoga is different, it natures your body to release the pain, whereby it begins to heal naturally. Going onto my 50’s I started to have many different pains in my body and mentally feeling exhausted. After having attending Mala’s yoga’s a few times, I got hooked. As time went, I noticed I no longer suffered from foot hill pain, knee pain, back pain and my body became more flexible and I found more energy in myself. It is all thanks to Mala’s Yoga class and one to one session
