I started practising yoga in 2003 when I moved to Chicago with work as a means of getting to know people in the area. On return to the UK in 2004 I continued my practice attending classes at my localhealth club (David Lloyd Leisure) and then moved into locally run classes. Since then I have been regularly attending classes and private lessons with my teacher, Michelle Chand.
Yoga isn't about how flexible you are and which poses you achieve, it's about finding something you connect with, that both your mind and your body like coming back to everyday. In my own personalpractice I have a teacher who I trust 100% who guides me through my practice which in turn assists me in my everyday life. The yoga world at first was an intimidating place as having been a personal trainer and teaching fitness classes I was not used to such an environment, or sanskrit terminology!

Mylove of yoga first began when I was at university, over fifteen years ago. Like many people I initially thought yoga was just another exercise class, however I loved the inner calmness it gave me.
Claire's journey into yoga commenced when she attended her first yoga class in her early twenties. Arriving at an Ashtanga Primary series led class with no expectations, she was completely mesmerisedby the synchronised movements, the flowing breath and total sense of calm. In that morning she found her practice and her teacher. Whilst still eagerly pursuing a corporate career she continued to practise but often at the peril of a very busy workload.
I've been a fitness instructor and personal trainer for over 20 years and have taught many disciplines - Boxercise, Spinning, Body Pump and Step. to name a few. I've seen many fads in the fitnessindustry - the "latest, greatest" workouts that are eventually discredited or lose popularity. And I've seen Pilates and Yoga endure throughout. Why? Because they work! In a results-orientated environment many thousands of people have seen for themselves the benefits of Pilates and Yoga.
Mark's passion is Ashtanga Yoga, which found him in 2008 when he accompanied a friend to a class as a favour. This was repaid many-fold as he developed this transformational personal yoga practice andwith it a duty to pass on the benefits realized in his life to others. Since 2008 Mark has developed a daily Ashtanga practice initially being influenced by David Swenson, an early student of 'Guruji' Shri K Patthabi Jois, the founder of modern Ashtanga Yoga.

Bailey first discovered yoga as a young dance teacher, immediately falling in love with what it did for her flexibility, strength and self awareness. Growing up surrounded by music and yoga, Bailey'sknowledge and love of both have developed side by side over the past ten years and upon completing her studies at the world renowned Nosara yoga institute it felt only natural that she combine them in her teaching style.
I have always been a very active person all my life. Having grown up on the west coast of Sweden I practically spent most of my childhood spare time out-doors and developed a great love for a numberof out-door activities such as running, swimming, long distance cycling, skiing and hiking. I was also involved in martial arts for many years which gave me my first insight into an eastern based philosophy and practice system.
