All the classes are taught by me, Brigid Godwin. Yoga has been a huge part of my life since I took my first Ashtanga Vinyasa lesson 19 years ago. I simply loved it but had no idea at the time how lifechanging it was going to be for me, or that I would end up as a teacher.

I went to my first yoga class 15 years ago and after a few months in India in 1999 and the birth of my daughter in 2001, I began training as a yoga teacher and I have not stopped. I now have privatelessons with Penelope in the Krishnamacharya tradition and I am trying to learn handstand. I enjoy the physical aspects of yoga and I also like to bring the philosophical ideas into my classes because yoga is a way of life and includes moral guidance, breathing, meditating and more.
People want to be happy and healthy but in today's society we are drawn to life style choices that create an amazing amount of stress and anxiety in our already hectic lives, so I made a life stylechoice - Yoga.
