Grant Smith

With a background in Holistic Health and Martial Arts, Yoga was a natural progression for Grant.

He took his first yoga class in 2003, and couldn’t even touch his toes! Yet it wasn’t until his sojourn to Thailand, working in the luxury medical spa scene, that he developed a strong, regular practice. Grant’s time in this field gained him access to amazing and world renowned teachers, introducing him to wider styles and varieties of Yoga, and scratching the surface of deeper yogic philosophies and Buddhism.

This career path, and the pursuit of martial arts, took him to Bali, Indonesia for an extended period, where again he was fortunate to gain access to awe-inspiring and renowned teachers, in both yoga and martial arts.

Work also took him to London, where a daily yoga practice kept him sane and balanced. It was this revelation of the profound benefits for your mental and emotional health inherent in a yoga practice that cemented his resolve to commence teaching, which he did in 2014.

During his time in Asia Grant was blessed to encounter, work with and learn from an ordained Tibetan Lama, a master of Tibetan sound healing. The therapy of sound fascinated and amazed him, so he did intensive training with his teacher, and has been working with sound healing since 2009.

It is one of his favourite things to combine the healing properties of sound with the therapeutic benefits of Yin Yoga, with which he often combines the martial and healing practices of Qi Gung and meditation.
He also loves a strong and fluent practice, as well as the fun and vivacity of Laughter Yoga, which he has been facilitating since 2012.

Yoga, in all it’s forms, is a timeless practice, and a way to achieve longevity and harmony of body, mind and soul. Yoga is a lasting, and universal wisdom containing life-lessons that never become dated, or go out of style, and is a key practice for anyone interested in personal growth and the mastery of self.
