Kiki Morriss is a trained doctor, who owns Primrose Hill Yoga. She uses the discipline to help improve the lives of people with long-term illnesses.
What brought you to Primrose Hill?
My husband was born here and now we live in his family home with our three children. He is an architect and I teach yoga in the beautiful, light filled studio that he designed on the top floor of our house.
What makes Primrose Hill unique?
Primrose Hill is easy to fall in love with. It has a relaxed village feel and a strong, supportive community. There are beautiful townhouses and the view of London from the top of the grassy hill is second to none.
You have a day off to spend in Primrose Hill, what do you do?
I would drop my children at Sew Much Fun on Chalcot Road for a sewing class while I practise yoga at home. Then we would spend the rest of the day together in Chalcot Square, eating, drinking and playing games with friends.
What about your job do you find particularly rewarding?
As a yoga teacher and medical doctor, I have a deep understanding of the way yoga benefits the body and the mind.
I work with clients who have different medical conditions - from asthma, to MS and insomnia. Every day it is a great joy to help other people to be healthy and happy.
If you were the editor of the Ham & High, what would you focus on?
I would focus on introducing yoga and meditation to children, both at home and at school. It can help to support and develop their mental, physical and emotional wellbeing.
Who is the most inspiring person you’ve met?
My mother. She went to 17 schools in six countries and, despite an unsettled childhood, she had a gift for making people feel safe and comfortable with themselves.
What are you looking forward to for the rest of this year?
Watching my children grow up and supporting them, as well as I can, to be happy, kind individuals who are true to themselves. Being a parent is an unrivalled privilege.
