“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 Sampath

JUDY HIRSH SAMPATH is Founder of Yoga United Education and co-founder of Yoga United. During an intensive period of self-enquiry and mediation, Judy came to a revelation: her body loved her unconditionally, and all she had to do was love it back. It was so simple and awakened a chain of self-healing and wholeness. This awareness came to her in a Phoenix rising yoga therapy session when the noise of the critical mind was turned down to make way for the intuitive, quieter wise part of herself to speak. Ever since, Judy has been exploring how to tune into the body’s wisdom and support others to do the same. She engages yoga, mindfulness, meditation and therapies to unlock the bodies’ natural intelligence to educate people to become experts in themselves and empower them towards their own healing.

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 and capacity for healing, which has helped her to live a healthier, richer and more joyful life.

As well as teaching regular yoga & meditation classes, Judy is founder and course director of the accredited Yoga United Yoga Therapy diploma. She runs the BWY foundation course, BWY modules in Yoga Therapy & Yoga for Restful Sleep. Workshops in restorative & embodied mindfulness,yoga nidra, retreats and holidays in India... 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 and online. She is a member of Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy faculty, US.

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.

Curious about something happening in your body or your life?

Life is OK but it could be better?

Avoiding some difficult emotions?

Stuck physically, mentally or creatively?
