the Ishy Shala
The Ishy Shala is all about friendship and connection - a sanctuary + womb-like soft spacious light-filled space in the heart of romantic Notting Hill. It looks out onto a beautiful garden with squirrels and birds in the trees which feels miles away from the urban frenetically wired city sprawl.
We ‘work-out’ and ‘work-in’ to train you to be 100% present to yourself, strong, Self-directed, soft, graceful and loving. We use yogas, breath work, HIIT, weights, a yoga wall, elastic bands, key focus on pelvic floor muscles, etc to learn the best ways for our bodies to individually move and strengthen. And if you want to look more deeply into personal transformational + mentoring work, then please book to see Jane for her private work.
The practices end with ‘The Softening’ - a sublime hypnogogic state (like taking drugs but without the drugs). Post class, we drink a potent adaptogenic elixir to revitalize. You leave feeling connected to something deeper than your mind and ego, loved up, lighter, grounded and ready to take on the world from a higher space.
Our classes are strong in their fitness giving yet uniquely encourage the brain to release powerful youth enhancing bio-chemicals that help combat stress, inflammation and oxidation which is especially key during times of fluctuating hormones. Jane helps you: unstick the stuckness; your mind becomes your friend; your heart builds self-love; your body glows with appreciation and you begin to release the mental grip to control. For fuller details on the classes please click on the name of the class on the timetable 2 slides below.
How I Roll
Jane doesn't advertise and many of her clients prefer not to tell anyone about her for fear of not getting into a class. She likes folk to dream her up. To be drawn to the Shala by the burning sage. She is 'a sacred gem who talks to your soul amidst the craziness of urban life and the bullshit of the business of the yoga world'. She has a bio-mat + infrared panels to help move stagnant lymph and a heated magical floor with a deep bed of rose quartz crystals to generate love + good ju-ju.
Book a Class
We love quality so each class has only 6-10 students. We tithe 10% of each class to the children’s charity: War Child. At times, there’s a wait list but it moves so don’t be sad. If you are super keen to come flash Jane an email firstname.lastname@example.org because alchemy happens.

Are often organised at the Shala with a candle-lit vegan dinner served in the Kitchen above. For example, I host Otto Haddad for his amazing healing sound bath experience. A practice that helps rewire the nervous system and create profound levels of peace + relaxation. Please click on timetable above and date on the calendar icon to book.
