Guy Powiecki

Guy first encountered spirituality studying for a Theology degree specialising in Indian religions and Buddhism. Before working with yoga he was a personal trainer and nutritional adviser. In his learning journey Guy lived on and off for many years in India and South East Asia. Spending time in monasteries and institutions. As a practitioner he sees the importance of practicing asana, pranayama and meditation as mutually supporting forms for spiritual growth.  His classes do just this, and the aim is to use the body as a tool for psychological, energetic and spiritual development.  He hopes the classes will truly benefit those who take them.


Guy discovered pranayama through Paul Dallaghan and is now a dedicated and senior student of, classical pranayama master, Sri O.P. Tiwari having been authorized to teach pranayama by him. Guy has studied Ashtanga Vinyasa, Iyengar and Traditional Hatha. In learning meditation, he spent time with a number of Buddhist teachers, from both Tibetan and Theravadan traditions, but more recently with a focus on Vipassana. Guy’s knowledge of the breath has been broadened by his interest in free diving. 


Guy shares a website with his wife Sara Granström.

Pranayama Program Level 1

Pranayama is a profound practice. It has a whole host of health benefits and is probably one of the most effective tools there is for holistic health. It works primarily on the nervous system, and through that, it has an influence on pretty much every other system in the body. It can improve your digestion, give you a slower and more even heartbeat, bring greater mental calm, give you more energy, help you deal with the effects of stress, improve your cardiovascular fitness, improve the health of all your organs and much more.


Pranayama needs regular practice and commitment to start being internalized and genuinely felt. This eight-week program is the perfect place to begin your relationship with pranayama. Helping you develop a regular practice and introducing different techniques at the appropriate times. There is a new class for each week. Ideally, you would do this class every day of the week, but indeed as many days as you can. There is also an introductory video for the start of each week, where we will go over new techniques and themes.
