Yoga with Chandra

Yoga with Chandra

Chandra is the Founder of Yoga with Chandra, a wellness coach, Sacred ceremonial facilitator, Yoga, Pilates and Mindfulness meditation specialist, who runs workshops and events in Buckinghamshire and the surrounding ounties.

 Chandra had been into her fitness since her twenties, never been body confident in her youth, keeping fit made her feel more confident in her own skin. After trying all different types of fitness classes, over the years, She decided to  give Yoga a try, upon leaving her first yoga class, feeling, stretched and at peace, something she had never felt from any other type of exercise class. The spiritual and mindful perspective had such a profound effect on her, that she craved more knowledge in the historical and philosophical aspects of yoga.

After many years of practicing with several different teachers and suffering a wrist injury, which meant putting the training back a year, she finally enrolled onto her Yoga teacher training with the YMCA in London and in November 2017, she launched her first yoga class in a local village hall. Three years later after increasing her class schedule, she decided it was the right time to leave her part time administration role and to take the leap following her passions to teach Yoga and Pilates full time and to this day she has not regretted her decision .

 Chandra has developed her own style of “slow flow” Yoga a mix of Hatha and Vinyasa, her classes will not leave you dripping with sweat, but you will feel you have worked every plane physically and spiritually, as she teaches you to fine tune your body and mind, creating space and fully embodying each movement and intention in the practice.  

Chandra plans her class themes intuitively adding in a generous measure of spirituality and mindfulness. Having come from a spiritual background, she embraces all faiths and traditions blending Eastern and Western cultures.

Chandra Includes cultural celebrations into her varied class themes to aid diversity and inclusivity, along with Yoga philosophy and mindfulness, Chandra teaches what she likes to calls “conscious Yoga” Holding a safe space for her students to find awareness on all levels, enabling them to become empowered and nurtured in the same instance. Chandra values her students tremendously, and always has a warm welcome for all. Offering support during the classes and post session.

After her yoga teacher training with the YMCA in 2017 Chandra developed her practice and began her teaching career. Having always had an inquiring mind it wasn’t too long before she went onto train in Yoga philosophy with the Oxford Hindu centre in 2018. She also qualified in her pre and postnatal award and level 3 Pilates in the same year.  Chandra personally found Pilates added strength and support to her own practice an additional ideal low impact compliment to Yoga that delivered postural strength and support and added diversity to her teaching portfolio. Chandra even introduces mindfulness to her Pilates class, always adding some relaxation time at the end of the practice.

Further training has led Chandra to qualify in Yin Yoga, Mindfulness meditation and Sacred Space facilitation.

 In 2019 Chandra and artist, Rosie Hill, collaborated to create Evolve Collective, where they wove their own harmonious blend of skills and passions together creating offerings that support and inspire others in the community. These include Yoga and wellbeing events and facilitating Sacred space for ceremony, Art and meditation, including sound, song and chanting. Chandra was recently invited by Local radio station, Wycombe Sound 106,  to talk about The Evolve collective Collaboration and their events.

During COVID 19 Chandra has successfully moved her classes online, with a regular weekly schedule.

Chandra and Rosie have also introduced online New Moon and Full Moon celebration events that have been well received.  These include, breath work guided journeying / mindful meditations, sharing circle and Sacred Ceremony, plus more.

Should you be on the road alone?

Should you be on the road alone?

The Fitness Concierge mantra is simple….


My experience is that people have always spent a lot of energy, time and money on trying to do more for their health, fitness and mental wellbeing. They are prepared to throw money at things that MAKE THEM ENGAGE. They feel motivation is what they need.

In the past it was Keep Fit Classes, Toning Tables, Slimming Groups, Expensive Health Club Memberships, Workout DVD’s. Now it’s cheaper gym memberships, YouTube, Live Streaming, Easy to access Personal Trainers, Supplements, Home Workouts and Food Tracking Apps.

What is apparent is that many of the people that have engaged in these things on and off for months, years, even decades for some. Have still not achieved the result that they are striving for. Many dislike the whole thing or go through love and hate phases. On top of that the people described above often have very little detailed knowledge about the subject at hand. Despite all of this investment in time and money. I think this is in some part down to the fitness industry failing people more and more. You Sign Up (Engage) and are often left with very little education on the How, What, Why, When. Although personal accountability is a major factor. GO AND FIND OUT if it is important to you.

Can you imagine having a driving instructor for LIFE!

Can you imagine never absorbing enough information or being educated and empowered enough to be given the freedom of choice to pass your test and go out in to the world. Imagine not being educated to a level of believing in yourself and knowing that you can adapt to whatever each journey and fellow driver throws at you?

What would it be like to have such limited knowledge about the task at hand that staying safe and accepting that some journeys just take longer than others never crossed your mind. What if you were sent out on your own soo naive that you couldn’t accept that some things are out of your control no matter how much you try short cuts your friends have used before. They just don’t work for everyone every time.

This is why i prioritise the EDUCATION process to get people through their test at the right time for them. Not everyone passes their attempt at achieving their goal first time and many insist on jumping straight in to the test with no lessons. Even if they fluke a pass they are certainly not set up for long term success. Once well educated and passed I find it beneficial to let people find their way with all of the tools needed to be self confident, low risk to others (no mood swings from lack of happiness) and able to choose what speed to go from A to B without consequences that are not in their own best interests.

Some people learned to drive years ago and have had a long time off of the road. Now they are ready to drive again they find the dynamics of the road and technology to get us from A to B have changed dramatically. Very daunting. Most would not consider hiring an instructor to show them the new methods even though it is going to be more efficient. They passed their test before. The ego gets in the way, they “know it all” and although they encounter frustrations daily and may even have to regularly adjust or abandon their plans to avoid embarrassment. They continue to muddle through alone.

☝🏾 This is most peoples health and fitness journey.

Lack of knowledge creates fear, Fear brings anxiety and anxiety is a huge barrier to people getting to where they really want to be. Getting educated around your goals and the various methods/options to getting there. Getting comfortable with the details at your own pace, removing the fear and approaching the journey without anxiety. Will mean you will embrace every step of the way to arriving at your destination stress free and smiling.

Learning is K.E.Y

So, what do I do as an Osteopath? Most people associate Osteopaths with bad backs, but in fact Osteopaths deal with all musculoskeletal problems.

As osteopaths we look to treat globally/ holistically that is, we will look at your general health and environment and see if and what you are doing at work, home or play is contributing to your problem.

When assessing your musculoskeletal problem we aim to look at the presenting symptoms but also the chain of muscles and joints above and below that area, for example if someone has a knee issue, examinations of the hips and lower back will also be undertaken as well as looking at the ankles and feet. These examinations both active (patient does the movements) and passive (practitioner moves the patient) as well as a detailed case history allows us to piece together not only why the injury occurred but why it maybe being maintained and not allowing the body to recovery. Our treatment strategies combine soft tissue massage, articulation of joints and HVT (high velocity thrusts- or the clicks you may associate with osteopaths!). These techniques aim to help the body’s natural process of recovery by decreasing pain (leading to increase movement and exercise), increase range of movement and improving blood/ fluid flow.

As a Pilates teacher and triathlete, I’m very keen on the patients doing flexibility and strengthening exercises to aid their rehabilitation and hence get back to work and sport as soon as possible.

How does osteopathy compare to physiotherapy and chiropractors?

Our treatment differs from chiropractors who look to make adjustments and treatment to aim to get a patient to a structural norm, whereas osteopaths look at the structure and function of each individual patient in a more global perspective. As osteopaths we look at factors that may maintain or predispose the injury and how we change these as well as the injury itself.

Both osteopaths and chiropractors normally are more ‘hands on’ than physio therapists, who do some soft tissue massage work and may use electrotherapy but mainly use exercise prescription for stretching and strengthening.

All three of these have cross overs and each practitioner will be different, some osteopaths work like physios, some chiropractors work like osteopaths and some physios work like chiropractors!

An Osteopath would have completed a 4 year full time degree, this full-time undergraduate programme equips students the underpinning knowledge, hands-on experience and multidisciplinary teamwork needed to be a competent osteopath.

Robert’s clinics are based in High Wycombe, Princes Risborough and Long Crendon
