Our Teachers

Lizzie

Elizabeth has been practicing yoga and meditation for over 10 years and has had a keen interest in health and fitness throughout her life; training as a gymnast until her late teens. She believes there is a magical quality to the yoga practice which helps us work through life’s issues, physically challenging the body to focus & calm our minds. She is passionate about sharing these qualities in her classes, creating flows which cultivate a sense of exploration & personal enquiry for her students.

She believes yoga is for everyone – and creates a warm and inclusive atmosphere in class, with options so there is something for all students. She teachers vinyasa flow – a flowing & strong style of yoga which allows the student to explore breath with movement.

Taz

Using creative sequencing to link mindful movement with breath awareness, I nurture a playful approach to practice and a chance to connect with your true self both on and off the mat.

My approach is non-dogmatic and draws on a variety of styles and influences, encouraging you to explore your practice and find your own definition of yoga. We move slowly, with intention and supported by a steady fullness of breath.

There’s something for everyone – whether you’re dipping a toe in the water or you’ve already dived in.

Michelle

Michelle enjoys teaching a slow but strong flowing practice that syncs movement with breath. She emphasizes safe, healthy alignment and the linking of movement with breath (vinyasa) to enhance strength, flexibility + present moment awareness. Michelle endeavours to share yoga in a safe and accessible way and to create a non-competitive, relaxed environment to participate in, so that its many benefits can be appreciated (including greater relaxation, improved concentration and greater self-awareness).Her classes are suitable for all abilities and levels and she offers modifications + alternatives to suit individual differences.

Jude

I’ve been practicing yoga for over ten years and have studied various disciplines such as Hatha, Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Yin and Bikram yoga. My classes draw from all of these styles with a mix of dynamic flows and static postures, they are open to all levels. I have a lighthearted approach and encourage students to celebrate what their bodies and minds can do.

Astrid

Astrid is passionate about sharing her love of yoga with others, helping students realise the power of their bodies through breath and movement. She invites yoga students to come to their yoga mat as they are, not as they think they should be. Her aim is to teach invigorating, energising, strengthening classes with a solid emphasis on alignment and proper posture for safety and full benefit of poses.
