Teachers > Rani Lawson
Originally from a dance background, Rani first began yoga in 2013 to improve her strength and flexibility in an engaging way. As her practice developed, she discovered the sense of clarity and ease that followed her off the yoga mat. Yoga class quickly became her safe space to calm the mind and release any built-up emotions from the day.
Rani is profoundly grateful to teachers Bibiana Franco and Jay Gardam, who guided and shaped her current teaching philosophy and practice. Bibiana’s Latin roots inspired her to bring confidence and individuality into each class, and the mentality that to improve we must first show up and practise, practise, practise. Jay’s deep knowledge and teaching experience provided engaging classes that highlighted the power of using yoga to balance the body and mind.
The focus of Rani’s teaching is to create a balanced practice by improving body awareness and the mind-body connection. Expect an upbeat, entertaining and motivating class that strengthens and tones the body while cultivating a positive and clear mindset. She aims to provide her students with an uplifting and welcoming space to cultivate and explore their own unique practice.
