Ros is best known for her bright sparkly leggings, bubbling enthusiasm for Forrest Yoga, and her propensity to be upside down at every given opportunity!

With a wanderlust spirit, Ros spent 11 years living overseas teaching English in Spain, Thailand and Malaysia. She started practising yoga whilst living in Bangkok in early 2007. It was hot yoga that first drew her in. She discovered it provided a great way to handle the anxiety that accompanied her stressful job, alongside helping to heal her knee injury. Whilst visiting Bali, she met Cat Kabira and was introduced to Forrest Yoga.  Forrest Yoga’s focus on breathing into injured areas of the body in order to heal them really made sense.

In 2011 Ros took her first 200 hour teacher training in Yoga and Energetics with Cat in Bali. Here she studied Vinyasa Flow and Yin Yoga, alongside completing Cranio Sacral Therapy Level One training. On her return to Kuala Lumpur she left her stressful management role to move back to teaching English part time and started teaching yoga classes at a local studio. In June 2012 she completed the Forrest Yoga Foundation teacher training with Ana Forrest.

Since then Ros has done the Advanced Forrest Yoga teacher training and has completed the Forrest Yoga mentorship programme under her mentor Forrest yoga guardian Sandra Heider. Ros is a fully certified Forrest Yoga teacher and has assisted Ana Forrest during her workshops and teacher trainings in the UK. She teaches in London and is a keen marathon runner and offers yoga for runners workshops.

Laura’s classes are playful, creative, delicately balancing effort with ease and influenced by her wide experience of practicing with many inspiring teachers over the past 15 years .

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.
