Laura’s first experience of yoga was a chance class at university with a group of Buddhist monks. Her curiosity was sparked and a couple of trips to India and six years in the corporate world later she completed her first training in Hatha yoga in 2011. Laura has since gone on to study in many styles of yoga, training further in elemental yoga therapy, vinyasa flow, yoga and mindfulness for children as well as moving into holistic therapies and qualifying as a macrobiotic consultant and reiki practitioner. Laura is committed to developing her personal practice, regularly attending trainings and workshops so that she can continue to share her love of yoga with joy and energy.

Laura’s teaching style is intuitive and versatile, responding to the energy of the room and offering what she feels will honour where people are in their practice. Morning classes will usually involve flowing creative sequences; providing a degree of challenge whilst encouraging movement with greater awareness. Evening classes will include pranayama (breathing exercises)  some yin yoga or restorative postures to nourish and energise the body as well as meditation and yoga nidra.

Amy Williams

Amy’s style of teaching comes from a place of nurturing. She wants you to feel free to explore the capabilities of your own body, respect your boundaries and learn how to heal and protect it. By blending strong, grounded hatha practises with the freedom found in Scaravelli and vinyasa she believes that each practise can help create the perfect balance between flexibility and stability in both body and mind.

Bess Shipside

Bess teaches a hatha flow based asana practice but comes more from “how does that feel” rather than precise alignment based practices.  Connecting the heart to the body and mind through physical movement and the breath and infusing mantra and affirmations in each class be ready to be taken on a transformative journey.
