Salema Veliu

Salema brings a wealth of experience to her work as a Yoga Teacher, Movement Psychologist, Neurobehavioral Coach, speaker, writer and co-host of a monthly radio show, Master Fear Illuminate Life. Teaching for over a decade globally, she draws on her training and study with some of the most well respected pioneers of self-development over the last two decades on and off the mat; David Life & Sharon Gannon (Jivamukti Yoga), Marc Holzman (Anusara), Elena Brower (Art of Attention), Kia Miller (Kundalini) Gabrielle Bernstein (Spirit Junkies), Dr. Dan Siegel (MINDSIGHT).

Her passion in the mind led her to therapy and coaching where Salema studied Coaching Psychology at the University of Cambridge. She is now completing her second Undergraduate in Cognitive Psychology and Neuroscience with particular emphasis on Neuropsychology under the direction of Professor Lee De-Wit and The Science and Practice of Mindfulness and it’s Clinical Applications. Salema is also studying The University College London programme ‘The Many Faces of Dementia’ and is an affiliate member of the American Psychological Association. She is a registered Senior teacher and teacher trainer with the Yoga Alliance.

Her mission is to share the connections between Eastern and Western Science in an accessible and inspiring way as a key to regulating emotional balance and raise awareness to cultivating flexibility in the brain, mind and body. In creating The Science of Habits Coaching Programme, along with her Evolutionary Flow classes expect a blend of yoga, psychology and science to explore and understand how the brain resists change. Sessions give a unique insight in how to learn to work according to your brain rather than against it.

Salema writes and speaks about the science of life through various blogs and publications including Psychologies Magazine and Women’s Health and Fitness. She has been involved in teaching and speaking events for Psychologies Magazine, The Secret Yoga Club, Lululemon at The Royal Opera House and The Royal Academy of Art in London. She lectures and presents at various conferences including The Yoga Show and Mind Body Spirit Festival. In addition to teaching and studying she runs a successful Neurobehavioral Coaching and Movement Psychology private practice. Based at the Tri Yoga in Chelsea and Cam Yoga in Cambridge, she is delighted to return to Breeze.
