Ashleigh

Ashleigh Edwards

My style of teaching is relaxed, offering a practice accessible to everybody. I offer a laid back, safe and welcoming environment to truly let go and focus inwards.

My yoga journey began in 2017 when I moved back home from university; I was lost with no direction. The yoga classes I attended brought balance in both my mind and body and I became quickly engrossed in the practice.

I decided to do a Yoga Foundation Course, to dive deeper into yoga philosophy. I then began my BWYQ L4 Certificate in Yoga Teaching course over 18 months, and have recently qualified with The British Wheel of Yoga.

My passion is to help people feel the way I felt after my yoga classes.

Helping to build up a relationship with her body and breath to further support her vocal health and mental health.

Donna

Donna McCafferey

Donna began practicing Ashtanga Yoga with Rolf Naujokat at the end of 1998 and started teaching in 2012 after realising how much the practice had transformed her life. Donna completed her 200 hour Teacher Training with John Scott in 2014 as well as trainging with David Swenson. In 2017 Donna was authorized by Manju Jois to teach the Primary and Intermediate series of the Ashtanga method and is now registered with Independent Yoga Network as a 500 hour teacher.
Donna is dedicated to the Ashtanga system and loves the logic of it: the counted vinyasa system helps students to focus during class but can be modified to suit different bodies.

This practice has transformed Donna's life and love's the idea that, through yoga, she can help others to find their own light.

Jaina

Jaina Bhana-Mistry

Namaste, I am Jaina aka Jai, Yoga has been a constant in my life since I was at university studying my degree in Fashion Design. I trained in 2010 for my 200 hours Hot Hatha Yoga teaching qualification with Yoga Haven & 2015 with Lushtums for my Pre, Post and Antenatal Education qualifications. I began teaching yoga in 2015.

I offer bespoke and tailored classes, workshop & retreats to suit your needs, whether you are a new or established yogi / yogini. Classes are fun, friendly, relaxing and a safe space place for you to practice. I am passionate about sharing the traditional philosophy of Yoga, taking you on a journey through breath work, meditation, mindfulness, relaxation, basic pose, alignment and more challenging postures through creative sequencing. Pranayama (breath work) & asana’s (postures) will help to detoxify and remove any stale, stagnant energy, whilst we focus on connecting with our inner being, leaving you feeling energised and happy from the inside. Yoga asana is only a small part of our practice, the holistic therapeutics are unique to each individual and I am passionate about nurturing people and creating communities through my classes.

I believe yoga is a life style and one that helps to promote happiness and abundance. Practicing yoga regularly and consistently can keep you physically fit, mentally and emotionally balanced encouraging better health and wellbeing both on and off the mat. Make Yoga your lifestyle choice.
