Hilary Totah is registered and insured as a yoga teacher with the Association of Independant Yoga Practitioners (AIYP). She has been practising and working with yoga since 1978 and was a shiatsubodywork teacher from 1986 to 2004. She was principal of The British School of Shiatsu-Do between 1999 and 2004. Hilary says: 'Yoga set me on my life's path to working with the body, from my first class of ante-natal yoga, through my study and teaching of shiatsu bodywork, to teaching yoga today.
Yoga has been a part of my life for many years now. I have experienced a profound change in the way my body feels and moves during that time. I have also experienced a considerable change in my way ofthinking. The practice of Yoga has certainly helped me to improve and understand the integration of mind and body and become more aware of my natural breathing.
Practised mindfully, yoga can help you develop strength and flexibility, release stress, alleviate structural pain (such as knees, back, neck), feel more calm and centred, regain vitality and interestin life. Yoga is highly regarded for its healing properties when recovering from an injury or illness.

Jo has had a successful career, of over 22 years, in a commercial environment. At this time she started practicing yoga to help keep her positive, fit and healthy in a stressful, client basedenvironment. It worked. She was always complemented on her positive approach and did not need to take time off sick. Luck maybe, but Jo put this down to practicing Yoga. In 2006 Jo decided to follow her heart and concentrate on teaching Yoga and Well-being on a full-time basis.
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.
