Yoga is far more than a physical practice; it's an opportunity to become curious about who you are. Our yoga teachers have each undertaken more than 500 hours of study; their own personal practice (sadhana) provides the foundation from which they share their practice with you.
Yoga has always been present in Sara's life; she has practiced and studied yoga in many forms since childhood; always returning to practice during difficult times to find solace.

Renae started practicing yoga in her mid 20’s and has practiced regularly for the last 7 years.
A reconnection with yoga occurred just before turning 30 - this time the connection wasn’t about the asana practice it was about the meditation and the philosophy of being here now, or nowhere. During this time she didn’t attend asana classes unless they were restorative."To me yoga is mental, physical and spiritual. Yoga to me is more than words can describe."
Renae aspires to bring yoga to every BODY and this is reflected in how she delivers her classes; making them light hearted and accessible for everyone.
Living the corporate life in London, Liesja started yoga with the hope of bringing some balance into her life and reducing anxiety. Like many before her, she loved the physicality of yoga, but more recently discovered the deeper layers of yoga whilst struggling with infertility and pregnancy loss.
It was her journey into motherhood that spurred her decision to become a teacher of yoga. Completing an 8 week mindfulness course as part of her training, "was truly transformational in allowing me to explore a daily meditation practice, a tool every mum should have in their survival kit."
Qualified to teach hatha, vinyasa and pregnancy yoga. Liesja's classes are a balanced blend of breath and movement; guiding students to feel more physical space, finding their intuitive nature and feeling empowered in their practice and in their life.
" I love that yoga allows you to slow down, check in with yourself, observe your deeper layers and connect to your own unique rhythm."
