Stewart Gilchrist 

East London School of Yoga


Stewart is known throughout London for his popular,innovative, authentic dynamic classes. He infuses his high energy and challenging teachings with yogic knowledge, as well as his unique charisma, politics and humor. His classes include an emphasis on breath, vinyasa and philosophy with strong physical adjustments. Stewart applies the original teachings of yoga to the modern world to create a thought-provoking class.




Having trained in astanga and as a Jivamukti teacher Stewart’s spiritual journey led him to train all over the world with teachers who have had a profound effect on his unique style of teaching.

He offers his eternal gratitude to all his teachers: Sabel Thaim, Jennifer Dale, Hamish, David Life, Sharon Gannon, Swami Niramalanda and Sri K Patthabi Jois.

 


"Gilchrist says he’s constantly trying to find a balance between teaching an authentic yoga and giving people what they want, which is normally intense physical exercise. His answer is to just keep teaching, try to be authentic and true to the science of yoga, maintain its integrity while keeping students interested. In the end, everyone is on their own personal journey."
