Did the ancient Egyptians practice yoga? We have no evidence that they did, contrary to what is claimed in any number of books. Does this mean that the rich cultural heritage of ancient Egypt has no place in Yin Yoga sequences or Yin Yang Yoga sequences? Join Mary-Lou for her ground breaking Egyptian Goddess Yoga in Brighton and Hove.
Mary-Lou presents Egyptian Goddess Yoga, where myth blends with beautifully crafted Yin Yang and Yin Yoga sequences. Mary-Louise, known for a tenderness of voice, invites you to invoke your inner Goddess through Soul-making Story-telling in combination with embodied movement. Join her in Brighton and Hove for a class.

Mary-Louise is the Founder of Egyptian Goddess Yoga, an approach to yoga which incorporates Egyptian Goddess Myth into her sequences. Following publication of a feature article in YOGA Magazine in August 2020 (Yin/Yang and an Egyptian Goddess), Mary-Louise, has developed a way to weave ancient Egyptian goddess myth into her Yin as well as Yin Yang sequences. Join her in Upstairs at SIX, Yoga Studio Hove in February 2022 for a workshop on the goddess Tefnut. Mary-Louise's students have expressed huge enthusiasm for the inclusion of this ancient wisdom in her classes.
