In Rosie's classes you are guided to work meditatively, listening closely to your own body and breath. Discover your inner resources to develop postures as you learn to isolate parts of your body andwith small movements make big shifts. All of this happens without grasping but by listening and allowing. Rosie's teaching focuses on using the breath to deepen and extend the body, mind and spirit.
Zoë Reason trained (and teaches within) the Iyengar Yoga tradition. She is certified (and insured) to teach by the Iyengar Yoga Association (UK). Iyengar training is often regarded as one of the mostthorough and demanding systems of teaching people to teach yoga. The Iyengar method is methodical and progressive. Which means that you start with simple movements and then, as you progress, you move on to more complicated poses and to more sensitive and subtle ways of working in basic poses.
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.
I use good, safe alignment techniques and encourage students to build a life-long personal practice combined with a regular class. I always include Yoga Nidra, visualisation and chakra balancing in myclass. To find out more about me please visit the profile page. If you can't make it to one of my classes or would like a bit of extra motivation please visit Mikaela's Yoga Channel where I've posted some yoga tutorials. I hope that my art inspires you to do the same.

I have always had an interest in health and fitness and began practising yoga as a teenager. My interest grew when I practised yoga regularly as a student in London where yoga helped me deal with thestress of my Degree course in Illustration (and London life!) particularly in my third year. It was when going through another stressful time in 2006 that I decided to take the plunge and train as a yoga teacher!
Yoga came to me in two ways. A curiosity from being the child of two medics. And from growing up in competitive sport. I love sports science, But I wanted to know what can I do to make these achingmuscles feel better? What soothes them? I studied yoga, especially the vinyasa practice, during my university years alongside the BWY. Then I went the heartland India. Immersive study in Hatha Yoga.
