Leena

Namaste, Yoga has been ingrained into my life from birth, I have grown up observing rituals, stories, songs, dance, mantras from the Vedas, the Mahabharata & The Ramayan, to name a few.

Singing Kirtan, meditation in its various forms have always been a part of my life.

 

My grandfather in particular along other members of my family and the community I grew up within have taught me and still guide me through a Yogic and Veda lead lifestyle.

 

I have trained and practiced with Shiva Rea, David Sye, Sarha Lo, Rodney Yee & Colleen Saidman Yee, Jackie Quayle, Joanne Najduch these are a few of my wonderful gurus who have guided me on my Yoga path!

 

I teach Asana & Pranayam.

Caroline

Yoga for me has been a saviour, as the years have gone by it has become so much more than just a physical practise. It has taught me so much about life and myself and it's a journey I'm still exploring and will continue to experience.

 

It's not just what you learn on the mat it is what you take off the mat too. Yoga brings me back home and makes me want to be a better person.

Helen

Yoga came into my life at a time when I needed it most, I was working in a stressful corporate world but after practicing Yoga for 6 months it dramatically reduced my stress and anxiety levels by giving me the tools I needed to get me through a very difficult time.

 

After practicing for a few years and noticing dramatic changes to my body and mind I decided to study Yoga and completed my 200hr Hatha Vinyasa Yoga training in Bali, followed by my 300hr teacher training in Vinyasa Yoga 2 years later in India.

 

I teach Vinyasa Yoga from beginners to advanced level by catering each pose so that you can decide how far you want to push your practice at your own pace. I believe that kindness to yourself and kindness to others is fundamental to the practice of yoga.

Emma

Emma is a fully qualified Pilates and Yoga Teacher who practiced Yoga to cope with stress during a corporate career.

 

She introduced Yoga in workplaces as part of employee engagement programmes and later became qualified to teach herself.

Karl

My practice started four and half years back when I returned a lost phone to a Yoga Teacher. After being invited to take a class,  I felt an instant connection, and so my Yoga journey began.

I have travelled around Central America, Bali and on numerous occasions India. Looking for answers for alignments or adjustments that would quickly seal my practice and explain everything to me. Instead I found something wonderful, it was connection, with self with others and the ground that I choose to unroll my mat on. Serendipity indeed.

 

I have just returned from India after completing 200 hours training in Ashtanga Vinyasa Flows and passionate and a little excited at becoming part of someone else’s journey and sharing the positive benefits that Yoga has for all.

Laura

Hello I'm Laura. As your instructor I wanted to take the time to introduce myself and give you a brief run-down of my career and professional experience. That way not only is there peace of mind that you're in safe, capable hands when working out, I will also ensure that you will have fun during your sessions.

 

Having danced from an early age I was lucky enough to gain a full scholarship at The Hammond School. Training at one of the most prestigious Ballet Schools in the UK means that I have the extensive experience to draw upon for my Barre classes.

 

After graduating in 2007 I then went on to perform in world famous cabarets in Paris, to grand casinos in Asia and explored the world dancing on cruise ships. At home I have performed on Television and toured the UK in theatre shows.

 

Splitting my time between teaching and performing allows me the perfect balance for both of my passions

 

Upon returning to the UK I continued my education into maintaining and developing the physical form, training with the internationally renowned Michael King in Mat Work Pilates.

 

I continue to develop my fitness education attending refresher courses and professional workshops annually to ensure that the content of my class is always to the highest standards.
