Katerina Dvorakova 

Hatha & Hatha Flow

In 2010 I began yoga, but found deeper meaning in it training to become a Geography teacher in 2015. Yoga quietened my busy mind at this challenging time; I had better relationships with my students and myself.  

 

In 2017 I received my Ashtanga and Vinyasa 200H teacher training at Sampoorna Yoga, India. My teachers were intuitive and open; their style informs my teaching today.  I seek to incorporate philosophy, pranayama and mudras into classes and workshops for holistic healing.

Much of Elena’s life has been spent training in the creative body. Diverse years studying movement, performance, singing and visual arts furthering her fascination with the body’s ability to creatively express. As a yogi it brings her to a deep understanding of physical anatomy, and an appreciation for the beautiful way different bodies create their asana practice. And as a teacher, it inspires patience and playfulness in her classes. As well as public & one to one classes, you can find her teaching internationally at festivals & working locally with community groups and schools to bring yoga and arts practices to more isolated communities.

Noemie Fontenelle

Hatha Yoga

 

Enjoy and share a Hatha yoga practice every Friday 12-1pm. My teaching encourages a mindful approach during which we receive the opportunity to connect to our bodies through the use of breath. My love for yoga stems from
the belief in its ability to bring us a sense of compassion for who we are in the present moment.

The class offers a nurturing environment that is accessible to all. We will explore a range of positions that focus on different aspects of body and mind in order to become stronger and more flexible both emotionally and physically, allowing you to leave the space with greater positivity and a feeling of wellness.

Tia Psihogios

Hatha & Yin

Some level of stress can be good for us, it can inspire action and productivity; but too much stress can be counterproductive and leave us feeling overwhelmed, over stimulated and well, just plain frazzled.
This hatha based yoga class invites you to explore movement and breath to soothe and nourish body, mind and soul. Expect a combination of pranayama (breathing) exercises and mindful movement to release tension and invite a sense of presence and ease. The class will end with some longer held, more yin style postures to really release and let go. A chance to step out of the day to day and create your own oasis of calm.

John Malone

Authentic Relating

 

Some years ago I was invited to just be with other people in a group, to drop any need to perform or manage others and to just observe and respect my own feelings and experience. This day changed my life.

 

Since then I have done hundreds of hours of Interpersonal Mindfulness and completed the facilitation trainings with Authentic Relating International and with Circling Europe. The principles and exercises allow us to shine a light on the habitual patterns of thought, speech, breath and movement that we have accumulated, the things we do or think when with others due to anxiety, social convention or avoidance of tension.

 

Creating a space where we help each other slow down and experience a greater level of connection - with our own feelings and with each other - gives me a great deal of joy.

Joy Van

Vinyasa Flow

 

Over time yoga has become something that I couldn’t live without. As someone who had never previously considered myself to be particularly well-coordinated or physically capable, yoga was the first thing I found which doesn’t matter how strong, bendy or balanced you are; there’s something accessible to everyone.

 

I was hooked, and have watched with fascination what yoga has done for me; building strength and resilience not only physically but mentally too.

I aim for my classes to be energetic and fun. We work hard but within our limits; wobbles and laughter are welcome.

Beth Gregory

 

I  have been practising Yoga for 7 years and completed my 200 hours YTT with Himalaya Yoga Valley Goa earlier this year. My training was strongly influenced by B.K.S Iyengar and so integrity within the practice and alignment is central to my teachings.

 

My classes encourage students to connect with their body, their breath and the subtle energies of the body - challenging themselves whilst also respecting their boundaries. My teachings honour the source of yoga and students will leave feeling empowered within their practice.

Natasha Kembrey

Energising Flow

 

 I was first drawn to yoga in my late teens/early twenties and what drew me in after my first couple of classes was the that feeling of connection, I soon wanted to learn more. After practicing a while longer I did my first yoga teacher training in Goa, India. Since then I’ve completed forest inspired pregnancy teacher training with Charlotte speller and an anatomy and physiology 60 hour training with Chris Gladwell and Sarah Harlow. 

We call yoga a practice and that practice certainly becomes a way of life, the practice of yoga and the lessons from everyday life is a constant learning process, I learn so much every day and one of the reasons I love to teach is that I also learn so much from my students.  My wish is for people to leave my classes feeling more connected and more in harmony with themselves and others.

Becky Neusinger

Liquid Flow

 

Yoga came into my life at a point where I was particularly stuck. My life has transformed since then and the role of yoga as a consistent player throughout this has been central. Yoga has supported me without me even knowing it which inspires me to share this potential with others. By practising yoga for release, strength and flexibility I cultivated profound change, self-love and confidence.

 

I am a 200hour Certified Yoga Alliance Yoga Teacher. I have completed additional trainings in yin yoga, aerial yoga and thai massage which have provided me a deeper understanding of yoga and its many forms and benefits.

For me yoga is a tool for the individual to connect with the self in any way that works, there are no rules or rights or wrongs, only self-expression. Through nurturing this self-expression and care we can then reach out and connect with the collective, developing strong, lasting, loving relationships with ourselves and others.'

Rosie Kelly

Vinyasa Krama

 

My fascination of the human form is what initially brought me to bodywork and then to yoga.

Through exploring ancient practices of yoga, we can find delight in the breath and in how we move, and take this off the mat to becoming more graceful and conscious in our whole human experience.

Aside from feeling more relaxed and at ease in your mind, I aim to inspire pride, pleasure and a feeling of being at home in your incredible body.

My classes are suitable for all levels as we will work with a 'kramic' (step-by-step) approach.

I enjoy selecting a carefully considered playlist for each class and welcome any suggestions for new music to play!
