These Sangyé Yoga School (SYS) workshops will offer a challenging and intellectually stimulating experience on the mat but one that inevitably translates into life. The practice revolves around a Vinyasa (conscious breath and movement sequence), hands-on adjustments, meditation, chanting, Yogic/Buddhist philosophical teachings and culminates with deep relaxation.

The are specially formulated workshops for STUDIO YIN which are based on the SYS – The Real Dharma: monthly inspiration based on the Buddhist path. Be prepared to observe habitual patterns of behaviour that we, as students, often overlook or dismiss as irrelevant in life but can lead to doorways of profound insight and ultimately change.

Cat Alip-Douglas: The Journey from Condé to Sangyé

From the fashion floors of Condé Nast in New York to the wooden floors of Sangyé Yoga School -Jivamukti Affiliate London, Cat had officially traded in her Manolo Blahniks for a more ’grounded’ approach to life…in bare feet.

Cat hails from New York City and has been calling London home since spring 2004. She is privileged and blessed to have been involved with Jivamukti Yoga London since its inception in summer 2005 and furthermore as it continues its natural evolution into Sangyé Yoga School. She currently serves in the roles of Advanced Certified Teacher (Jivamukti), Senior Yoga Teacher (Yoga Alliance UK) and Co-Director alongside her husband Phil. It is with tremendous gratitude that she embraces the opportunities to indiscriminately apply the teachings to all aspects of this life and to do so for the benefit of all sentient beings.
