Paul Selvey founder of Power Flow Yoga™.
Paul creates an encouraging, welcoming environment for his students. He has practised Yoga for nearly two decades and taught Yoga full time for over 5 years. With his 800+ hours of advanced teacher training he shapes a mix of movement, breathing, kriya and meditation techniques to suit his students progression, from beginner to advanced.
Paul teaches from experience, his approach is more scientific and less mystic. He has an incredibly calming voice but can also muster high energy when it suits. He leads breathing and meditations with great knowledge and guides his students to understand the science of each step to find true peace and calm. He teaches to a very high level with dozens of breathing and meditation techniques, when you think you have mastered a technique, he then takes you deeper and deeper into your practice. Using Pranayama, in just a few minutes, Paul can help his students energise or relax, leaving them buzzing with energy or settled into deep rest.
His Yoga asana has a strong focus on alignment to keep you safe from injury. However Paul believes the journey to the Yoga pose is more important than reaching perfect alignment. His classes are set to a complementary soundtrack and all finish with one of his many meditation techniques in Savasana.
Paul’s classes, 1-2-1s, workshops and retreats have helped many people become pain free from injuries or tightness in their body. He has also helped people evolve from mental illness changing the way they see themselves and the world around them. Encouraging a regular practice to build positive healing energy little-by-little.
Paul has an extensive on-demand Yoga class library and also teaches regular live online classes as well as in-person classes when in London. He aspires to hold Yoga retreats in many locations around the world. He teaches: Power Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga, Hatha Yoga, Yin Yoga, Kriya, Sattva Yoga, Seated Yoga, Pranayama, Meditation, Mantra and Yoga Nidra.
