As a teacher Rebekah enjoys making yoga accessible to all – and often brings in help from her soft toy collection – Prana Parrot, Meditating Max and Yoga Ted.

For adults and teens, each class offers an opportunity to embrace a deeper knowledge of yourself and you will be encouraged to believe in yourself!

Cristina

Cristina always knew that movement was good for her physically and mentally, but when she first started practicing yoga she didn’t realise how much it would transform her life!

Cristina teaches Power Yoga, Restorative Yoga, ParaStars Yoga(r), Children's Yoga and Meditation. Her classes aim to find the right balance of dynamic and restorative poses, with a focus on mental and physical strength and relaxation. Cristina has also produced our popular Children In Need Meditations.

Gill

Gill specialises in back pain and discovered yoga through a back injury. She has conducted yoga holidays in Spain, the Canary Islands and Canada, and worked across London’s top gyms and health clubs.

She has a really good understanding of “how any physical limitations need not affect our yoga practice”. She has worked with all abilities from professional athletes and wheelchair bound pupils to stroke victims, blind students and cancer patients.

Gill is attentive to detail within her yoga teaching, emphasizing the importance of deep breathing for us all and teaches live SEND yoga classes for Synergy in leisure centres.

Gill believes that everyone should have the opportunity to learn Yoga and enjoy the benefits it offers both physically and mentally. With twenty years of experience, Gill wants “everyone to enjoy a yoga class that stretches your body and mind, and brings a little calmness, something we definitely need right now”. “Yoga is the producer of the greatest happiness" - Bhagavad Gita....And we all want to be happy.”
