Imen

Imen is a vegan Yoga teacher based in south-west London.

I was born and bred in South of France. I moved to London 6 years ago and now call it home. Although I would consider that I’ve always been an active person, as a kid, I never committed to any sport. It’s only at Uni that I joined my local gym and started working out regularly. I mainly attended Les Mills classes. Then, I incorporated weightlifting and running (my first love!). At that time, I thought that yoga wasn’t for me, that it was too slow-paced and that it wasn’t enough for my body.

Three years ago, I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid arthritis and as a result, I set myself the challenge to run a half marathon. But I knew that my body would need extra care and so decided to start practising yoga. My only intention was to give my body a ‘good stretch’ and thought it would improve my running skills. However, I quickly felt the benefits of the asana practice not only on my body but also on my mind. I found the way to slow down and connect to my inner self. It helped me being more present – on and off the mat – as well as being more grateful and compassionate towards myself and especially my body.

My passion for yoga grew so much that I completed a 200h Vinyasa Flow Yoga teacher training in June 2018 with teachers and mentors Emily-Clare Hill and Michael James Wong at Frame. My intention is to help people connect with their body and mind.
