Sasha Jones

"As a qualified Sports Rehabilitator I have a passion for helping people live an active and pain free lifestyle. I thoroughly enjoy teaching Pilates as I feel this gives people the tools to try and self-manage any injuries they may have or just as a gentle form of exercise that may prevent these from occurring.

As a lover of Pilates myself I decided to train to teach in 2017 through APPI and began teaching Pilates in 2018."

Sasha teaches on Mondays and Thursdays: Pilates & Stretch and Release Class.

Jane Barnes

"I love sharing the transformational journey of yoga and seeing the positive results. I teach stressed out people how to relax through yoga, pranayama and meditation.

I do this through devising creative yoga sessions and teach techniques to use on a daily basis, helping students to combat the negative impact of stress and teaching how to trigger the relaxation response.

Through carefully designed sessions, stress melts away, leaving the students feeling freer in mind and more flexible in body...ready to embrace life!"

Jane teaches on Monday Evenings: Yin Yoga & Vinyasa Yoga.

Love the class and the Pilates is helping with stiffness I have from working in front of the computer so much. It is delivered in a relaxing, step-by-step class that flies by! The instructor is so friendly and welcoming. As for Bodnant, it adds to the calm and mindfulness, helping me to take time out from the busyness of life and to make time for myself.

Phil East

Phil was introduced to Tai Chi in 1988. He was 19, grappling with depression after the death of two school friends in a car accident and failing his A levels. He went to Australia for 6 months backpacking, and was introduced to Qigong and he knew he had found a special place; a safe haven from life’s trauma.

After 17 years working Mental Health, Phil decided that 2020 is his year to share his love of Qigong with others; to help people to find peace and tranquillity through gentle but precise movement, breathing and emotional release techniques that make up a Qigong practice.

Phil teaches Qigong on Tuesdays & Thursdays.

Kate Hamilton-Kapur

"I teach the Yoga that works for me! When I arrive on my mat, I treat it as my sanctuary and a place to bring myself back into balance. Life can be hard, joyful, beautiful, exhausting! And so I move mindfully, I focus on my breath and see what happens.
This is the approach that I take into my classes. I have a lesson plan and I know where we're going but I offer lots of choices so that everyone is in that space of tuning in and doing what feels right in each moment.

The peak of my practice and my classes is after the asana practice, when we sit with a Mudra and sit quietly for 5-10 minutes before a 15 minute Yoga Nidra. My classes are all suitable for beginners."

Kate teaches on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays.

Helen Jackson

Helen’s style of teaching is compassionate, light-hearted and grounded. She aims to guide people through movement and breath practices, simply noticing and tuning into sensations, cultivating connection and mind-body awareness. She believes yoga is for everybody and that it has the unique capacity to support healing and wellness.

Inspiration for her classes often comes from the cycles of nature and the seasons. She loves exploring how what we learn on the mat can be of benefit to us out in the world.

Helen teaches on Tuesday evenings: Beginners Class & Slow Hatha Flow.

Natalie Gray

Natalie has been practicing yoga for over 15 years and teaching for the last 4 years. She studied at Sampoorna Yoga in India which took her practice far beyond the mat and opened her mind to the ancient Indian philosophies and teachings.

Her passion and experience lies in Vinyasa Flow, Yin Yoga and awakening the Chakras. With a background in anatomy she takes a functional approach to teaching, and a focus on how each Asana feels rather than looks, making this style of Yoga accessible to all and more importantly, encouraging creativity and fun and time to take a moment to pause and find our centre.

Natalie teaches a 90 minute Introduction to Vinyasa on Saturday mornings.

I love your classes, a friend told me about them, I am very grateful! I love them and leave feeling energised but calm, nurtured and peaceful. Nice to have the social contact, (socially distanced of course) so I don’t feel so isolated as I live alone.
