Samira Schmidli-McBriar



Samira moved from Amsterdam to London to study Choreography and Contemporary Dance at the Laban Centre, London. She danced professionally for many years which includes the musical the Rocky Horror Show as well as working with many independent contemporary choreographers.


After lots of years of dance somehow, something was lacking. Having tried Yoga as a means to keep her body in good shape for the tough dance world, she fell immediately in love with the meditative flow of the Asana practice. 


Samira has a profound understanding for the way the body wants and needs to move. She has a keen interest in helping people discover the joy and freedom of movement and for helping them develop a beautifully healthy and peaceful relationship with their bodies and beings — however they find themselves to be. 


Samira completed the advanced RTY500 hour’s course, which she undertook with the Art Of Contemporary Yoga. Samira has been teaching and facilitating people through the process of yoga since 2008. Allowing people to get back in touch with, that which lies at the core for all of us, namely our innate urge and need to move, followed closely by quiet space for reflection to un-wind our busy minds.


Samira successfully completed a 200 hour foundation training and is qualified to teach Meditation, Pranayama, Stress Management, Chakra Work, Foundation in Philosophy / Psychology as a Registered Meditation Teacher RYT200 with Alexander Filmer-Lorch.
Samira is registered at the Yoga Alliance UK



If you are curious about our UPCOMING ACTIVITIES AND COURSES,







The first thing you discover is

a kind of emptiness,

a silence,

a presence which doesn't seem to have content to it,

like looking up at a limitless sky. 


That boundary-less place

inside you

is your own consciousness,

your awareness. 


When you relax into it,

you realize that it's also full -

it is everything. 


You realize this presence is

what you really are: Love.


Arjuna Ardagh




For last year's words belong to last year's language
And next year's words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning.

T.S. Eliot, Little Gidding
