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.
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 brings a light hearted and playful quality and, through her training, a strong foundation in both anatomy & physiology and yoga philosophy. She continues to be inspired by a range of yoga styles and some fitness too! Her classes are grounded in meditation and yoga philosophies which inspire her own practice. She loves moving the body creatively and playfully; flowing through carefully crafted sequences that do work students hard but also give space to let the stresses of modern life melt away and to connect to a greater awareness of ourselves.
She teachers vinyasa flow – a flowing & strong style of yoga which allows the student to explore breath with movement.

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 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 strives 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
