'I love all aspects of yoga and am driven by showing and teaching people how yoga works in everyday life, not just on the mat. And how it is truly for everyone irrespective of shape, sex, size or fitness. That is where my passion truly lies. I currently teach Hatha Yoga for all levels, specialising with beginner classes (bringing people back to the essentials of yoga).'

'My classes are friendly, relaxed, fun and varied. Students are encouraged to practice with curiosity and enquiry. To focus on body sensations rather than achieving the perfect pose. I recognise all bodies are different and move differently on different days.'

What is known as the GYROKINESIS® method today was originally known as 'Yoga for Dancers'. It is practiced on a stool and a mat, and it is the foundation for the GYROTONIC® method. What to Expect from a GYROKINESIS® Class to move with fluidity, with focus on your breath.

Rachel has had a keen interest in Complementary Therapies since the mid 1990's when she was often used as a 'Guinea Pig' by a group at Scarborough College who were studying many forms of Complementary Therapies. After having had acupuncture needles stuck in her, crystals placed on her and been prescribed tinctures to aid self healing, she decided to do some training herself and embarked on her Aromatherapy Diploma. She then subsequently qualified in Indian Head Massage and Reflexology and began practising her therapies from home whilst working part time at the local University.

A move down to Norfolk in 2003 saw Rachel take a change in her career, working one to one with vulnerable people. During this time she still did therapy work for friends and colleagues and has continued to expand her knowledge and skills and qualified as a Crystal Healing Therapist in 2011 and qualified in Deep Tissue Massage and Pregnancy Massage in January 2016. Not one to rest on her laurels, she also qualified as a 200 hour Yoga Teacher in September 2016 under the guidance of Swami Atma Gyanam Saraswati.

"Since those early days of being practised on, I was astounded by the positive results of many different forms of Complementary Therapies and my own experience working directly with people through my therapies, re-confirms all the time the positive effects they can have. I love that feeling of being able to assist someone in a very gentle yet positive way."

Rich

Open Qualifying organisation in new tab Richard Woodall


Teaching all over the world for nearly 4 years now, Yoga for Rich is all about union and non-duality

He got into the practice when he realised that his body and his mind were often in different places, as much as his thoughts and his feelings of happiness were too.

Yoga philosophy gave Rich the space to live in a more truthful way, in union with his beliefs and ideas of life and existence. Also with more peace and acceptance of self. Living by the heart became a daily practice as well as grounding and finding space, physically and emotionally.

His Vinyasa classes are both dynamic and relaxing. He introduces a modern approach to yoga whilst fully embracing tradition and its beautiful philosophy.

The Yin classes are super super chilled; deep longer-hold postures all on the floor, laying or sitting down. Always taught, from the heart, with beautiful music and philosophical topics.

He's a true believer that yoga is for everyone. We just have to give it a try!

When he's not teaching, he's usually writing, playing the guitar and having a sing song, or finding a beach somewhere to be near the water.

Open Qualifying organisation in new tab Vanessa Ponsford


Free Spirit Yoga.
Free spirits are inclined to explore life and taste new experiences that hold true to the deepest parts of themselves versus being influenced by what the masses around them are doing. They are often people who think freely and have the courage to hear their own voice and follow their own integrity. Free Spirit Yoga aims to follow these principles in our yoga practice, with influences from Forrest Yoga , Ashtanga, Vinyasa and Hatha yoga we will enjoy a practice that enables the yogi to venture deeper into asanas and try something new. Learning to listen to their bodys and discover its limitations and possibilities. I encourage each individual to understand how their body moves and work with the breath to get deeper into each posture, whilst interacting and having fun offering a nice relaxed atmosphere.
Each class will involve movement in sun salutations, pranayama (breathing) exercises to calm the mind and strengthen the body with a relaxing yoga nidra at the end of class to settle the soul.

"I have been practising yoga myself for over 10 years and trained as a fitness instructor and personal trainer. Yoga kept me sane through some very dark times of my life. When I was working towards becoming an elite instructor for Bodybalance my yoga self was reignited and my longing to become a yoga teacher grew stronger. I found Atma in one of his classes and soon decided to join him for 200hr teacher training in 2014. I have experienced many different styles of yoga and have seen the benefits of yoga help not only myself but also many of my students. My style comes from the heart with a free spirit. I teach Hatha Yoga but with influences from Forrest Yoga , Ashtanga and Vinyasa. I like to be lighthearted in my teaching, encouraging interaction and enjoyment with a no fluff approach."

    Vanessa offers
  • 1-2-1 yoga sessions for £30.
    1-2-1 sessions can be for the complete beginner to get to grips with yoga and how their body works. Or for rehabilitation to help the body move more easily perhaps after an accident or due to chronic illness/disability.
