Barbara Ward

Yoga with Barbara Ward

I was first introduced to yoga whilst at school, and since then I have enjoyed taking classes of lots of different styles. But it was vinyasa yoga I found myself drawn to most - flowing from posture to posture, incorporating the breath. I completed my 200hr vinyasa yoga teacher training in London under the tutorship of Michael Wong and Emily Clare-Hill - and I am still learning today, each time I step onto the mat. My beginners class introduces students to different poses, with a focus on good alignment, breath work and - perhaps most importantly - a light-hearted attitude that embraces each wobble. I give my students the tools and the confidence to find their own yoga practice. I am so excited to share my love of yoga with you and can't wait to see you on the mat.

Darren Cheers

Scapilates with Darren Cheers

​I have been in the fitness industry since my early twenties. I first started teaching aerobics for Bath University Student's Union whilst doing my English Degree, before moving to London and making it my calling in life. Over the years and the many incarnations the fitness industry has embarked upon, I have also developed and evolved with the times and research. I have witness the emergence and subsequent fading of various fitness fads and discovered what is sustainable and effective.


I began teaching Pilates over 6 years ago, and with my continuous expansion of knowledge and experience have developed a more active brand of Pilates which I've trademarked Scapilates.

​Scapilates is a more dynamic approach with less mat work and more emphasis on body weighted exercises, that generate a training effect. By fixating on scapular stability this actively stimulates more effective core recruitment and encourages the body to work as a single unit. Through a series of dynamic strength and length sequences posture, flexibility and balance is immediately improved.

Gianni Trivedi

Pilates with Gianni Trivedi

I have been doing Pilates since November 2005 and qualified to teach in July 2013. I have had spinal surgery which has changed my life completely, this has given me a huge different outlook on the well being of my spine so I can give suggestions or advice to a certain extent for anyone suffering with lower back issues or possibly suffering the same symptoms or condition I did which was a herniated disc.
The well being of my clients is essential for their health and safety, I can digress exercises and progress them, I can give alternatives if a client has an injury or in unable to perform an exercise. Possessing knowledge is not all what it takes to be an instructor it is also how you convey yourself that clients understand you and feel relaxed so being an effective communicator is essential as well as, the personality of an instructor is pivotal. I am confident, innovated, approachable, dedicated, influential, an effective listener, fun, patient, committed, motivated which makes my classes very good so people will return and influence others to join.
I am able to teach all levels from Beginners, Intermediates, Advanced, Classical and Contemporary Pilates. Depending on the studio/premises and their equipment/level of class I also incorporate the use of the Swiss/Mini Ball, Light Weights, Dyna Band, Pilates Circle and Foam Roller. I am Pilates reformer trained I can teach Pre/Post natal. I have Levels 2 and 3 in Mat Based Pilates also.

Certification: Introductory Level 2 (600 hours)

 

 

Kristyan has been practising yoga for more than 35 years - since the age of 19.  Diagnosed with asthma and other respiratory illness at the age of 8, as a teenager she pursued more holistic ways of managing her symptoms.  She found a book in the university library in her hometown of London Ontario.  The book taught yogic breathing which Kristyan has been practising ever since.  When she moved to the UK in 1989, she joined a small Iyengar class in the home of experienced yogi Shiv Sharma. Shiv and his wife Pam made numerous trips to Pune, studying extensively with BKS Iyengar directly for many years.  Kristyan's practice slowed during her pregnancies and when her children were small.  She practised at home with her children and then resumed classes at the Iyengar Institute in Maida Vale where she has studied with many teachers there.  Her mentor at the Institute is Marco Cannavo.   Kristyan is currently training with Alaric Newcombe in preparation for the Junior Intermediate exam.

Lydiana Abbott

Yoga with Lydiana

Lydiana started yoga 13 years ago, where she was introduced to Ashtanga at school. Being relatively, naturally flexible she was instantly hooked. It was only until many years on, that she realised the importance of strength in asana practice. Lydiana has spent the last year teaching at yoga retreats and centres around South America. Back in London, Lydiana teaches Ashtanga, Power Yoga, Vinyasa and Beginners classes.

 
Power Yoga

A fast paced class to create heat in the body. We move through a series of postures, building on top of them to deepen our practice. Be prepared to sweat, come out a little shaky in the thighs but calm in mind.

Back to Basics

This open level class is for those looking to refresh and refine their regular practice, and for beginners wanting to learn the fundamentals of asana technique. The class begins with a more contemporary warm up to awaken the body and we finish with Pranayama, breathing exercises to slow down the mind and body for the rest of the Sunday.

Sammy Furnival

Yoga with Sammy

 

 

 

Sammy fell in love with the possibilities of the body from a young age and trained as a dancer for 15 years, until one day stumbling across yoga in search of something more.

Forever learning, Sammy now practices and teaches regularly across London, as well as in Europe and India.

Falling, shining, wobbling, smiling, balancing and sighing are all heavily encouraged.

Roz Nugent

Pilates with Roz

My introduction to Pilates came about as a result of chronic back pain. Once rehabilitated, I went back to my first love: yoga. Shoulder pain then brought me back yet again to Pilates, and that was a turning point for me. In 2009 I signed up to do teacher training with the renowned Pilates Foundation, and have been teaching ever since.
Every teacher has their own unique style of teaching. My classes are dynamic and fluid, with one exercise seamlessly transitioning in to the next. I combine the classical Pilates repertoire with contemporary Pilates, with an emphasis on breathing and alignment.
