Judy Hirsh - Yoga Teacher, Course Facilitator & Therapist

Judy Hirsh

“Yoga is not a luxury but an essential tool for a better lifestyle. It is not about how you look on the mat but how you live in the world” Judy Hirsh 

JUDY HIRSH SAMPATH Founder of Yoga Headspace, and co-founder of Yoga United, Judy brings a creative mix of yoga-based practices to engage health seekers of all ages, sizes and abilities to tune into their own head space and inner wisdom. 

Judy believes that yoga and yoga therapy can have positive effects on how we view our own reality. ‘All the knowledge we need is buried deep inside our body and we can simply learn how to access our own wisdom to restore our health, heal ourselves, and invite creativty and flow in our lives’ 

She does not prescribe one ‘style’ of yoga, prefering to start with the body as an entry point to a deeper understanding of self, relationships and life. She has found ways to unlock the bodies' natural intelligence, which has helped her to live a healthier, richer and more joyful life in tune with who she is and her own truth.

She teaches open classes, the BWY foundation course, restorative & embodied mindfulness workshops, retreats and holidays. She takes yoga, meditation and yoga therapy into health spas, offices, school, mental health and fertility settings, and 1-2-1 with clients in north London.

1-2-1s & Yoga Therapy

Unlike a group setting, working 1-2-1 is opportunity for personalised movement, and a space in which to explore what's happening in your body and your life. 

If you are noticing sensations or stress in your body that are affecting your life, it may be that your body is trying to tell you something. With Judy's support, you can listen to your body’s intelligence before your analytical mind takes over. Remember that your body has been witness to every event in your life and holds your whole history, personality and truth.

If you are curious about something happening in your life or your body, call Judy for a consultation.

Judy is trained in Phoenix Rising Yoga therapy which works on the principle that your body has a wonderful intelligence of its own and it will give you the experience you need when you need it, when you take time to listen and be present with whatever is happening.  This works with embodying mindfulness, touch or no-touch, and humanistic psychology, and access to your own wisdom.

Based in north London with practices in Muswell Hill, Crouch End and Hendon, arrange a first session for individual or group yoga,or yoga therapy now. There is a sliding scale to suit all clients with options for single or multiple bookings.
Here are some ways that yoga and related practices can help you:
  • Learn ways to let go of tension and stiffness
