Luisa Zamboni

A former gym enthusiast, Luisa came to yoga 10 years ago to treat persistent lower back pain as well as crippling anxiety, during a tough time in her life. She fell in love with the yoga practice, which has made her stronger and healthier both physically and mentally.

She decided to train as a yoga teacher to share her passion and in the hope of helping others realise how powerful a tool yoga can be.

Luisa’s training in Power Yoga and Rocket Yoga allows her to create beautifully sequenced classes that are strong and flowy, with plenty of modifications for practitioners of all levels and abilities. She loves teaching beginners or people who may have not practiced in a while and may look to reconnect with the practice.

She aims to create an inclusive and loving environment where every single student feels safe and seen. She doesn’t take herself too seriously and will crack the odd joke, as she truly feels yoga should be a joyful experience.

Luisa says "Expect sweat, Sanskrit, core work, uplifting music, and inspiring readings."

Maeva Wright

Maeva teaches Vinyasa Flow at Complete Yoga.

Inspired by her teachers, peers & the environment, she brings a sense of empowerment to her classes. Through intention, meditation, pranayama & asana, her goal is to help students connect with themselves, while the noise of the “outside world” fades away in the background. She teaches with the goal to encourage introspection and self discovery.

Maeva’s yoga journey began in London back in 2012 and ever since yoga has become her refuge and source of inspiration. She has embraced it as a lifestyle and not just as a “powerful” workout. Yoga helps her to let go of the day, navigate the “ups and downs” of daily life and get restful sleep at night.

As Maeva says, “My classes are for everyone, from newbies to experienced yogis. It’s perfectly ok if you can’t touch your toes, or arch backwards. In my classes you will learn to become more flexible, tune into your body and become fitter in the process. But most importantly you’ll feel relaxed and gain clarity. There is nothing that fulfils me more than seeing you taking your first steps towards your own yoga journey."
