Tara came to yoga after a knee injury while training for a marathon and has loved it ever since. It soon became a foundational part of her life as she explored the magnitude of teachings the practice can give us. She believes that to do yoga doesn't mean you have to be able to touch your toes or stand on your head. It is mostly a mental practice about keeping the mind clear and moving the body in ways that will make it more efficient for every day.
Everyone's body is different and her classes celebrate this as she guides students to look for ways to move and breath freely. She encourages students to balance between being kind to themselves and challenging them to develop further in a playful, safe, and relaxed atmosphere. While physical practice is fun for her, she is drawn to meditation and everyday mindfulness techniques that can offer grounding through stress and trauma as well as in our day-to-day interactions so she will be sharing these throughout her classes.

Yoga came to Freddie at a time where her body was very far from connected to her mind. She was spiralling to become very unwell and had a real “awakening” that what she needed most was to pause, reassess what made her happy, and learn to appreciate her body. For Freddie the last is a huge part of yoga that is often overlooked. Not only can we be amazed by what the body can do on a physical level though ‘asana’, but too, recognising the relationship you may have on a psychological level with yourself… what do you tell yourself?
She believes in our bodies, our minds lie – so her goal is to get your bodies moving and processing life’s ups and downs. She wants to normalise anxiety and give the tool of yoga, breath, meditation, movement, when there is a personal struggle. Open up the conversation and open up to connecting with others. Give it a go!

Yoga + Meditation Teacher
Kat took up yoga practice whilst suffering with depression in her early 20s, and found it made her feel profoundly 'different'. I sparkled. Yoga, spiritual practice and movement practice always amaze me by their capacity to heal, soothe & inspire.
In 2015 she went to Bali to train in Ashtanga Vinyasa, rescued a kitten, wrote a few bad songs, and felt renewed..
Fast forward five years, she have over 500 hours training in Vinyasa, Mandala, Yin & Forrest. You can find her teaching around SE London, sometimes dragging my handpan onto crowded trains. She have spent time teaching in India & hosting international retreats.

Susan first found yoga when she was 16 years old and would accompany her Mum to her classes. She loved the peace and healing she felt after these sessions. Susan then rediscovered yoga later in life after suffering from very bad anxiety. She loved the way yoga allowed her to be completely present in the moment and how she could work with the breath, mind and soul as well as the physical body. No other form of movement gave her this. Yoga was such a great 'all rounder' for the whole human being. She has practiced and taught a range of yoga styles from the dynamic vinyasa to the healing restorative.
Her classes now mix creative movement and flow with held postures and finish with yin and guided meditation. Teaching in this way allows students to find freedom in their mind and body through the creative movement and flow elements as well as finding balance in the mind and body through the held postures. Incorporating yin and guided meditation allows students to find stillness, healing and peace. She love sharing my practice with others and look forward to meeting you!
