Sam Stone

Yoga & Tai Chi Teacher

I have 10 years experience in yoga practice and trained with the British Wheel of Yoga, which included a foundation course followed by the completion of a two and a half year diploma course.

This qualification included anatomy and physiology and dealing with a range of health issues. I am fully qualifued and insured to teach asana (postures), pranayama (breathing techniques), yoga nidra (relaxation) and meditation.

Theresa Samworth

Yoga Teacher

I have been practicing yoga for over 10 years. I came to yoga from a non-sporty background and started out not being able to touch my toes, that’s why I believe yoga is for everyone, regardless of age, body shape or fitness.

My growing love of yoga put me on the path to teach and I trained with Sally Parkes Yoga in London specialist in vinyasa flow and hatha yoga and qualified as a yoga alliance associate teacher.

Having had the benefit of learning from some excellent teachers past and present, my influence in my practice and classes are broad ranging. I aim to make my classes relaxing, energising and fun.

Hannah Stewart

Yoga Teacher

I have been dedicated to my own personal practice yoga for more than ten years and teaching for nearly six. Having completed teacher training programmes (including pre and postnatal yoga) with both The British School of Yoga and The Victor Foundation, I continue to do regular trainings and workshops.

I teach all ages (from newborns to grown ups!) and all levels from those with chronic illness to intermediate/advanced.

Yoga is my passion, my lifestyle, the part of my nature that I want to share with everyone I meet. I am constantly learning from my teachers and my own practice and this is borne out in my teaching style.
