Conscious that mental health issues affect more and more of us each day, she decided to train as a yoga teacher in order to share the benefits with as many people as possible. Originally training in Ashtanga Vinyasa, Louise has since completed trainings in Yin Yoga and Pregnancy Yoga, bringing a focused and balanced approach to all her classes.

Kirsty

Kirsty always turned to yoga and meditation as a way of managing a modern, stressful city life. Run-down and overworked, yoga opened her up physically, energetically and mentally. Kirsty's yoga training exposed her to many different styles and lineages of yoga including Sivanada, Jivamukti, Ashtanga, Prana Flow and Tripsicore. Kirsty draws upon all of them to create classes that trigger the positive mindset of "flow state". Breath control, or pranayama, is an important part of her own practise and classes, exploring techniques that can be used on and off the mat to help with stress and anxiety. Kirsty continues to research yoga philosophy and new science based on the mind, body and consciousness, weaving it into her challenging classes.

Lydiana

Lydiana was first introduced to yoga at the age of 14 and fell in love with it. With over 10 years experience in Ashtanga and Vinyasa flow, she has learnt that with more strength brings less flexibility and more flexibility brings less strength! Yoga is all about balance and this is something she is reminded of everytime she steps on the mat. Her classes bring exactly this.

Sam

Samantha’s classes are slow-flowing, energising and uplifting, but with a strong sense of grounding and serenity. She loves the grace of Vinyasa, the precision of Iyengar, as well as the grounding of Yin. Driven to teach after witnessing that the highs of a fast, busy, bright city life, can inevitably be matched with lows, both draining and exhausting. After spending 5 years touring in bands and living in hotels and tour vans, Samantha found yoga after a strong urge to be grounded and feel home. Music is another driving force of her classes, and remains a huge part of her life, therefore practice. She believes the music she chooses, can make people relate, identify, and feel connected, bringing yoga into the 21st century, into a western world. If this makes people stop, breathe, and slow down, then she is happy!
