You Seek Yoga is for those who need a deep inward journey of soul searching to be brought to them

New stretch target

Extra funding means a push towards premises, which is my eventual goal - meaning I can offer classes that are open to the public in house.


You Seek Yoga

You Seek Yoga is primarily aimed at people who, having looked at their life, are unhappy or dissatisfied and ready to make a committed and supported change. Through my extensive training and lived experience I can offer a pathway to something outside the status quo.

Why yoga and healing?

Growing up in and around Croydon there was not a lot for me that was healthy. I was a bright kid who always did well in school, but in my free time I turned to drugs and alcohol because that was just what people did. I didn't have the option for anything else. These choices lead me into situations that put my life in danger more than once, and I consider myself lucky to still be here with you today.

My story

My road to recovery was difficult. I will always be working through the trauma of my life choices. And I didn't have a map in front of me, but I worked hard and am creating one so hopefully those following won't have to struggle the same way that I did. I went to any class I could afford, took trainings in hatha, vinyasa and tantra. I trained in Reiki. I spent 15 months travelling, volunteering as a yoga teacher and immersing myself in Buddhist and Hindu culture, learning to apply wisdom from these living examples. And I went to temples, monasteries, ancient ruins, made pilgrimages and spent time close to my teachers as much as I could spare. This journey hasn't been easy. For those of you who haven't taken an immersive training they are rather like a boot camp, and the impact of them is felt over years.

Current offerings

As a provider I offer yoga tuition, Reiki healing and yoga-inspired coaching that allow people to cope with the shock of their traumas. These traumatic moments jolt us out of living and into a sort of disconnect with the rest of the world. Through dedication, practice and support, it is possible to reconnect in a way that feels joyful, authentic and within our limits.

"Jazmin is an incredible reiki practitioner! One of the best sessions I've ever had - you simply must book if you can! Can't wait to book again." ~ Bre

Future plans

Of course, I have a few plans with any money raised. While I'm ready to receive clients, having the funds to spend time with my teachers and healers will support me in doing the work I need to do. Awakening is unbelievably tough, and I have a great many people I've found that have helped me and allowed me to create a system of support for myself.

"I highly recommended Jazmin for retreats. she's amazing at working with you at your own pace, teaching you different poses and practices for every chakra, day by day. She is very real and transformative in a mental and physical way. I can truly say Jazzy changed my outlook on how react, and empower myself. If your looking for something a little more personal and enlightening rather then just a yoga retreat like all the others, go see Jazmin" ~ Ally


My eventual plan is to open up a sort of House of Healing, that enables me to work closely with people without having to travel too far. Being a Master Healer is exhausting, and spending all my time travelling doesn't permit me to work with people the way we both deserve. Having premises would allow me to support people and give them a place to go. From there, running regular retreats where people could come to work away from distractions would be essential. The best thing you can offer someone in this kind of distress, is a real break from any worries other than taking care of themselves.

What now?

In the meantime, A big part of my work will be helping people through a process that I call "Morphology". This is a type of focused self study support, within specified time periods and including one-to-one sessions, private personal retreats and unlimited online support. This is what I needed and I am grateful to be able to offer out, utilising the most powerful, precise and effective practices I've met and mastered.

"Through her classes (which were always carefully thought out and unique) we welcomed a full moon eclipse, got down & deep, were encouraged in a safe place to explore our own sensuality and to really tune in. I loved her classes and also had the chance to have a reiki session with her. Again her generosity of spirit, warmth and understanding married with her curious nature was such a welcomed thing." ~Melissa
