Alice
Trow

Dynamic Vinyasa

Alice became a yoga teacher after graduating from drama school where she also focused heavily on physical theatre and dance. She did her 200hr training with YogaLondon in Ecuador. And her 300hr training with Sianna Sherman in Portland, Oregon, in a style called Rasa Yoga. Rasa yoga calls for us to trust our integrity, explore what our bodies are capable of and ground into our authenticity, all of which takes time and commitment.

Amanda
Walker

Pregnancy Vinyasa Flow/Yin Yoga

Amanda’s background in dance, visual arts and anatomy influences her approach to teaching, bringing creative sequencing to classical poses and a focus on the potential for fluid movement and strength according to the potential of each individual student. She teaches vinyasa flow, hatha flow and yin yoga and has been teaching yoga in London for the last five years.

Each flow class is a well-rounded practice of initially warming and opening the body, progressing through gentle heat-building and strengthening flows, deep stretching and relaxation.

Amanda enjoys developing new flows and exploring the subtle and infinite possibilities of sequencing to challenge and nurture body and mind on the mat. There is always something new to discover in every practice!

Ann
Pidcock

Vinyasa Flow

Ann was first introduced to Yoga whilst training as a dancer at London Contemporary Dance School.
The instant improvement she experienced in how she was moving made her curious to discover more about Yoga and it’s rich myriad of styles..

For Ann one of the most exciting aspects of Yoga is that it has the potential to recognise the whole of a being.
Physical, energetic, mental and emotional.
She has trained specifically with this interest and tailors her teaching to embrace this holistic approach.
She teaches Vinyasa, Slow Flow, Yin, Restorative and Yoga Nidra.

Ann enjoys weaving anatomical exploration into class whilst layering up pranayama, mudra and contemplations to take off of the mat too.
Her flows are welcoming to a variety of levels and always give space for the individual to take what they need and leave what they don’t on any given day.

Her original teacher training was with Danny DeVille (15 years ago).
Since then she has learnt from many other wonderful teachers too.
Including Jason Crandell, Judith Hanson Lasater, Richard Miller, Uma Dinsmore-Tuli and Erinn Lewis.

Carina
Römlein

Rocketbeats

With a background in gymnastics and countless injuries to work with, Carina got into rocket yoga when she was looking for a strong practice that wouldn’t make her feel bad about not being able to do certain poses. A few years and teacher trainings later, she still needs a strong physical practice in order to ‘switch off’ from her busy job in the tech industry. This is why, as a teacher, she wants to share that joy and calmness that she gets out of the physical practice.

Charley
Logan

Vinyasa Flow

Charley believes when we move from a place of freedom and joy, the result of this practice is an enlivened being. It’s this deeply seeded positivity she aims to bring to her classes. With her background in Contemporary Dance, movement has always been a huge part of her life. Come to class for physically creative, fluid flows – dynamic with a touch of playfulness.

Claire
Wan

Gong Bath

Claire is a practitioner and facilitator working with yoga, sound and energy healing. With over 15 years experience of yoga application, she trusts in the body’s intelligence to inform and guide a practice, that can bring a sense of harmony and restore balance in any one moment.

After completing her 200hr YTT in 2020, as a means to deepen her practice, she found herself on a journey of reconnection to her roots and to the wisdom of her ancestors. Broadening her experience of ancient Chinese healing practices such as tai chi, qi gong, buddhist meditation and Traditional Chinese Medicine, naturally led her to yin yoga.

Together with her training and experience working therapeutically with the crystal and himalayan bowls, the gong and reiki. Her offering is an opportunity to go within, weaving together practices that are focused on stimulating the movement of chi, restoring balance, and supporting the nervous system, through stillness, silence and sound.

Her classes embrace softness and strength, and students can expect to move dynamically.
What she loves most about teaching is passing on the ‘antidotes for modern life’ that have helped her respond to life’s challenges in more calm, creative and kind ways.

Felix
Philippen

Yin

Felix found Yoga at a time where needed more balance in his life and the structure and discipline of Ashtanga really resonated with him. Vinyasa brought more freedom and playfulness to his practice. Finally, he found Rocket, which to him is the ideal combination of the two. Wanting to explore further, he completed his first 200h Vinyasa foundation training in 2020. With his practice deeply rooted in Ashtanga he decided to train in Ashtanga Vinyasa with the Yoga People, with whom he has since also trained in Yin Yoga, continuing on his journey to connect and balance body and mind.

Hongyi
Huang

Vinyasa

An introduction to Iyengar yoga in his early 20s would mark the start of a 20-year yoga journey but it was only after moving to London that Hongyi began to discover and explore the myriad of styles that the city offered. He has been practising Vinyasa yoga since and appreciates the dynamism and physicality as well as calming qualities.

A desire to further his practice led him to train as a yoga teacher. Through emphasis on linking movement and breath, Hongyi’s classes aim to synchronise qualities of strength with qualities of stretch, to bring an overall toning and sense of awakening to the body and mind.

A certified Yoga Therapist, Hongyi completed a Diploma in Yoga Therapy with YogaCampus, the education branch of Life Centre, in Summer 2021. Spread over 2 years, the course focuses on the nurturing and restorative elements of yoga, and through a combination of theoretical studies with clinical practice, to cultivate a therapeutic application of yoga that can be shared with a diverse and wider audience.

Jayne
Miller

Yin & Meditation

Jayne teaches fluid yoga with a strong focus on healthy alignment, breath awareness and playful exploration.
Her own practice of more than 20 years has taken in many styles from the dynamics of Ashtanga, Shadow and Acro, to the precision of Iyengar, and the experimental somatic movement of Tias Little.
She brings in elements of them all to create energising, yet thoughtful classes, encouraging individuals to develop confidence and joy in their yoga wherever they are.

Meditation is an important part of her sadhana and one she loves to share.
Jayne is continually evolving her practice and experiences, bringing her students along for the ride.

She trained with the BWY and YogaCampus, and has completed an advanced Rasa teacher training with Sianna Sherman, which she feel has added another layer of richness and flavour to her practice and teaching.

Metzges

Dynamic Vinyasa

Julia’s yoga journey began serendipitously when a friend dragged her to a class one Saturday morning. Since then, yoga has become an integral part of her life, transforming her in ways she never expected.

Coming from a background in psychological studies, Julia deeply appreciates the transformative power of yoga. Through dedicated practice, she believes in training the mind by overcoming self-limiting beliefs and recognizing them as the first step towards growth.

With over a decade of experience in various yoga styles like Ashtanga, Jivamukti, and Dharma Yoga, Julia aims to combine the most valuable elements of each in her dynamic Vinyasa Flow classes. Her focus on alignment, breath, and hands-on assists ensures that each student is appropriately challenged and encouraged to surpass their own expectations.

Kate
Lister

Yang to Yin

Kate’s exploration of yoga began aged 14, when she found a book of middle-aged women with 70s hair, shiny leotards and very bendy bodies in her grandma’s house. Weirdly, this attracted her. Luckily, she soon found out there was much more to yoga.

With a practice background in Ashtanga yoga, training in Vinyasa Flow, and an aversion to taking life too seriously, Kate shares playful, dynamic, breath-led sequencing with a focus on mindful alignment. She aims to enable students to find a personal practice in each class, so that they may cultivate their own yoga and experience the many ways in which the practice expands all areas of our human life.

Kate is also a professional singer and, having found yoga so supportive of this area of her life, now creates yoga programmes for musicians and performers specifically. She loves to use music in class, and has been known to bust out a tune mid-asana. Song requests welcome!
