Yoga Testimonials

"I find Tarik's approach to yoga to truly support the essence of yoga. His teaching is well paced, gentle and adaptable. I always feel comfortable working with him as he understands that each individual must develop at the pace that is right for them - a true yogi!"


"I have enjoyed both the beginners class and the regular class. All explanations are very clear and thorough which helps to understand the purpose for doing the sequences. The pace is good and controlled. I certainly notice when I don't come to a class for a while so I must be benefiting!"


"Tarik taught me on a 6 month yoga foundation course, I found him to be a very welcoming and inspiring yoga teacher, who creates a calm and focussed atmosphere for his classes. He also introduced me to Ayurveda, which I am very thankful for, as it has opened up a whole new way of thinking for me, introducing me to concepts about my lifestyle and diet that effect the way I feel physically and mentally. Tarik is wise and informed, making him a very engaging teacher."


"As a former conventional gym workout devotee, I have found yoga to be so much better. The classes themselves are great because of Tarik's approach: friendly, patient and reassuring. Somehow you don't feel like you are working even though you are. You really are! (I have the stomach muscles to prove it).

After five beginner classes I have felt the cardiovasucar benefits, seen increased flexibilty and as a result of Tarik's handouts from the classes - I can now practice yoga everyday - and from home too!

I feel like a true YOGI.

Yoga pratice is something I will definately be keeping up. Thank you Tarik,"


"I have to say how much benefit I received from the beginners class a few years ago and noticed how in that short period of time my body posture and shape improved. I will definitely be returning for more classes... Take care and continue the good work"

Loraine Ryan

"I would strongly encourage beginners of any age to join one of your yoga classes. I have greatly enjoyed the sessions, inspite of not being the most supple of people. I find it challenging at times but I am slowly improving with each session. You are a patient and engaging teacher."


"I have come to know Tarik through a British Wheel of Yoga Foundation course I attended. He was our principal teacher. It was a most enlightening and thought - provoking course with Tarik's knowledge and dedication going a long way in making the course such a successful one. Thank you Tarik."


"I have tried various yoga teachers in the past and Tarik is by far the best. You get the impression that yoga and its philosophy is a way of life for Tarik. Whatever your ability you will feel comfortable and at home in his classes. In every class he manages to introduce a new aspect and awareness of yoga. I always look forward to the classes and feel relaxed and refreshed when I leave."

Sally Bernal

"Tarik is a very knowledgeable teacher, the thing I enjoyed most about his teaching is that he keeps yoga philosophy and spirituality at the forefront of his teaching yet makes it relevant to our lives today and teaches in a very approachable and accessible way. Tarik's classes stretched my mind just as much as my body!"

Anna Latham, Yoga Foundation Course November 2008 to May 2009

"Tarik is an excellent yoga instructor with a lot of patience to explain every posture and he always make me feel welcome in his classes. His classes are very relaxing. I always enjoy every second of his classes and I recommend 100%!"


"After a yoga session in the Bounds Green Tennis club I feel de-stressed and surprisingly energetic, with a element of inner calm. Which can't be said of most after work activities!"

Tom Hawkins

"Taking up yoga with Tarik helped my mobility generally. The stretching particularly eased an old cricketing injury in my calf muscles, and together with dieting and weekly yoga sessions, I lost over two stone in weight."


"Tarik's extensive knowledge helped me learn about various elements of Yoga in a forum where I could ask challenging questions and receive an answer. His classes are safe yet challenging, varied and uplifting - I could definitely see and feel a development in my practise."


"Tarik runs a wonderful yoga class which is enjoyable as well as healing and strengthening. There is a friendly atmosphere and the pace suits people of all levels and abilities. No one is made to feel conspicuous. Tarik focuses on a different theme each week to be mindful of as you go through the poses. Gradually you can feel your body getting stronger and find yourself doing things you thought you could not do! I had intermittent back pain which has not occurred since being in Tarik's yoga class. Also some arthritis in my knees has been hugely helped. I could go on!"


Testimonials on… Yoga Detox

"Initially I was very nervous about doing the programme but I realize now these were false fears. I really enjoyed doing it and the benefits have been immense, not only physically but mentally. I discovered mental strengths that had been hidden… it has been a life changing experience."

Anne C Ackroid

"Very good foundation course for an introduction to the principles of Ayurveda and detoxification."


"Excellent! Wanted to feel healthier and more energetic and has surpassed all expectations!"


"Very interesting and definitely felt the effects of the herbs once the Kidney cleanse had begun. The Liver flush was a surprise but again I felt the effects afterwards were good. I d definitely repeat the programme myself. I though I had a good diet and habits but these have both changed a lot"
