Tori Lewis (SivaShakti)


Tori found herself on her first yoga mat at age 17, inspired by her motherís 20 years of practice. Everything that happens to me is because of others. As I slowly absorb the teachings, I try my best to share what I can.

Tori has been inspired and taught by Yogi's who are known and loved by many; BKS Iyengar, Sri Pattabhi Jois, Swami Sivananda, Prahalada Reddy, Swami Vishnudevananda, Dr Vasant Lad, Guru Dharam Sing, Satish Kumar, and by teachers who are known to just a few. She is continually encouraged by friends, family and by yoga/meditation/spirituality teachers from around the world, by nature and by animals. Her students and greatest teachers have been special needs children, prisoners, adults and children from all walks of life.


Tori established Yogadamba and the Holistic Learning Foundation in 2006. She is a Hatha Yoga teacher, Naturopath and Herbalist, a Special Needs teacher, a Kundalini Yoga Instructor and a Yoga Acharya "Advanced Master of Yoga" from Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Forest Academy. She is training with Birthlight, and teaches “Mummy and Me” Yoga at her home in Belsize Park.
