About

WELCOME

Seva South Studio, founded by Charlotte Hampson, seamlessly intertwines art and yoga to promote holistic well-being. Charlotte's background in fine art painting from Wimbledon College of Arts, combined with her yoga teacher training in Brighton, forms the foundation of her unique approach.

After graduating in 2019, Charlotte delved into exploring the connection between creativity and wellness. This exploration led her to pursue a 200-hour yoga teacher training (YTT) in 2021, solidifying her commitment to merging art and yoga as vehicles for healing and self-expression.

 

In 2023, Charlotte furthered her expertise by completing 100 hours of Yin Yoga and Guided Meditation training at the esteemed Aegialis School of Yoga in Greece. This additional training enriched her practice and enabled her to offer a wider range of classes and experiences to her students.

Seva South Studio, operates out of the vibrant Life Won't Wait Tattoo Studio on Copnor Road in Portsmouth. Here, amidst creative energy, Charlotte conducts weekly Hatha and Yin Yoga classes for practitioners of all levels. Additionally, she offers beginner courses to introduce newcomers to the transformative power of yoga.

Charlotte enjoys collaborating with other facilitators and teachers to host extra special events such as sound baths, cacao ceremonies, equinox celebrations and more! These sessions provide immersive experiences for participants to delve deeper into relaxation, mindfulness, and self-discovery.

Seva South Studio rebranded from Art Flow Yoga in 2024 after the launch of  sister company Seva South - an online directory for health and wellness businesses across the South of the UK. Art Flow remains the name of Charlottes art related retreats and workshops.

Beginners Yoga

Beginners yoga focuses on introducing fundamental yoga poses, basic breathing techniques, and proper alignment principles to those new to yoga.

 

This class incorporates gentle sequences that are accessible to all fitness levels and body types, allowing beginners to build strength, flexibility, and body awareness gradually.

 

The emphasis is on learning the foundational elements of yog in a supportive and non-intimidating environment.

Yin Yoga

Yin Yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga where poses are held for longer periods, typically ranging from 45 seconds to several minutes.

 

It targets the deep connective tissues of the body, such as ligaments and fascia, with the aim of increasing circulation and flexibility. Yin Yoga also encourages mindfulness and relaxation, making it a soothing practice for both the body and mind.

Hatha Yoga

Hatha Yoga is a branch of yoga that focuses on physical postures (asanas) and breath control (pranayama) to achieve harmony between the body and mind.

 

It aims to purify the body and cultivate a state of calmness and balance through a series of poses and breathing exercises.

Mindful Art Classes

A mindful art class integrates artistic expression with mindfulness practices, encouraging participants to engage in the creative process with presence and awareness. It typically involves exercises such as deep breathing, guided meditation, and focused attention on sensory experiences while creating art. Participants are encouraged to let go of self-judgment and perfectionism, allowing their creativity to flow freely.

 

The aim is not only to produce artwork but also to cultivate a deeper connection with oneself, enhance emotional well-being, and promote relaxation and stress relief through the artistic process.

"Charlotte is a wonderful yoga teacher, who brings warmth and kindness to every class. She strikes a perfect balance between encouraging me to challenge myself, but also tap into the mindful benefits of yoga. I've attended both her yoga painting workshops and evening classes, and couldn't recommend them enough."
