SUSAN SMITH

Susan Smith

After a series of illnesses resulting in collapsed lungs Susan embarked on a journey of healing that eventually led her to teacher training with the British Wheel of Yoga - a five year course that extensively covers anatomy and physiology, philosophy and pranyama (loosely known as breath control).

Susan particularly enjoys teaching newcomers and 3rd age generation adults.  She says ‘I love working with beginners it’s really rewarding to watch people grow as they develop confidence working in the postures. It’s a real pleasure to witness people finding inner peace as they learn the art of relaxation. Over time I watch people change shape, develop strength, flexibility and an inner radiance’.

Susan’s style is gentle, yet challenging and she draws on her work as a Psychotherapist to incorporate stress management tools and techniques into her classes, encouraging students to take control of their minds, emotions and bodies.

As a teacher of over 15 years Susan feels she is still learning and growing and regularly attends other classes and workshops to develop her knowledge, attitude and skills.

In the early nineties Susan trained with the Brahma Kumaris (Raj yoga ) and has been teaching meditation ever since. Sue has also qualified as a Reiki Master in the Usui Method.

Sue teaches the following class:

Monday 10.15-11.30am Hatha Yoga (Currently on leave )

MERIEL ANGHARAD

Meriel Angharad

I originally came to practice Yoga as a means to stretch out, as I was a heavy gym goer at the time. I soon felt the benefit to not only my body but also learning how to breathe properly, starting to slow down and experiencing the depth that yoga could guide me into kept me going back. I’ve been practicing now for nearly 20 years and teaching for 9 with over 800 hours of training’s. I still value the ability to breathe and the journey into the internal space that yoga gives me. These are the key elements that I focus on regardless of whether it be a dynamic practice of Forrest and Hatha or a softer practice of Yin and Restorative.

Meriel teaches the following class:

Monday 6.30-8pm Forrest Yoga
Tuesday 11.15am-12.30 Vinyasa Flow Yoga
Tuesday 12.45-1.45pm Energy Healing

LISA FAIRCLOUGH

Lisa Fairclough

Having worked as a personal trainer and class instructor for the past 11 years, Lisa turned to yoga 5 years ago in a bid to combat some of the stresses and strains she had placed on her body over the years and also to bring some kind of calm and peace to her otherwise hectic lifestyle.

Having completed her yoga teacher training, and fully embracing what it opened her eyes to, Lisa knew that yoga was the path she wanted to follow and inspire others to follow too.

Throughout her class Lisa encourages a strong connection between body, mind and spirit. She delivers a physically demanding practice, whilst at the same time encouraging her participants to practice without pain and to accept each moment as their bodies being exactly where they should be.

Lisa likes to use music and short readings as a way to enhance the experiences her participants have during their practice and as a way of enabling participants to take vital elements of their practice with them into their lives outside of the yoga studio.

Lisa’s background also means that she has a keen interest in anatomy and physiology. She will use her knowledge to guide you carefully and precisely through your poses, educating you about your body as you go.

Lisa teaches the following classes:

Monday 6.30-7.30am Hot Align & Flow Yoga
Tuesday 9.30-11.00am Hot Align & Flow Yoga

KATY BROOMFIELD

Katy Broomfield

Katy comes from an arts background with an MA in fashion textiles - addition to this creative work she has always loved finding ways to express and enhance the body.

Katy undertook a BWY Hatha yoga course with Zoe Knott in 2004 and added Pregnancy & Postnatal, Couples Birth workshops, Certificate by Birthlight, & Meditation modules to further develop her learning.

She has been teaching for 12 years and specifically likes to work with the breath, linking postures in flow movements, building a safe practice and working with strength as well as developing the flexibility required to reach the more challenging postures.  Katy especially likes to add balances in her practice that allow the mind the opportunity to rest, as these balances require deeper levels of focus.  She believes that the journey is the most interesting aspect of practice and encourages students not to be overly attached to the end postures.

Thursday 9.30-10.45am Thai Yoga
Saturday 8.00-9.15am Hatha Yoga
 

IMIR FRAZER

Imir Frazer

A life-long interest in health & movement led Imir to begin practicing yoga in 2000. She has since studied consistently to deepen her understanding of anatomy, the eight limbs of yoga, and yoga philosophy as a way of life; exploring traditional yoga systems, particularly classical Ashtanga Yoga, Dynamic & Restorative Hatha Yoga and Vinyasa Krama (the linking of postures together in sequence, building towards a key asana).  Imir’s teaching style is calm, light-hearted and friendly, her classes deep and challenging, accompanied by music. 

Following the tradition of ‘Guru Parampara’ (passing on the tradition of yoga in its pure form from teacher to student, generation to generation), Imir enjoys training with some of the world’s foremost senior teachers in Ashtanga Yoga, Vinyasa Sequencing, Yoga Philosophy, Meditation and Anatomy.  She took her initial 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training qualification in 2010, followed by a further qualification in Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Training in 2013 and 300 hour Advanced Yoga Teacher Training in December 2017.  Imir teaches weekly scheduled group classes, one to one sessions, small private groups, retreats and is founder of the Parampara School of Yoga, teacher training and foundation studies.

ERIN FITZSIMONS

Erin Fitzsimons

Erin found yoga 6 years ago when she began practicing hot yoga, which then opened the door to try many other styles including Anusara Yoga. She felt that this was the path she had been looking for, and decided to do what she loved - dedicate her life to improving the health and wellness of others.

Erin completed her Teacher Training with Bridget Woods-Kramer, a Senior Anusara Certified Instructor, in Ubud, Bali. She loves to travel and practice yoga all over the world, gaining from each new experience, and sharing those experiences with her students.

Anusara Yoga focuses on body alignment, opening of the heart region, and Tantric philosophy. She really connects with the principles of Anusara, and uses those teachings when instructing students. She incorporates pranayama, meditation, and intention setting into her classes. She loves to see students connect with their practice in such a way that their everyday lives are more centered and full of richness.

Erin is also a Holistic Health Counsellor. She attended the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York City. She believes in the Whole Foods Approach, and works with individuals and groups to reach health goals and higher levels of wellness.

DOMINI WINTER

Domini Winter

Domini has worked extensively in television, film and theatre as a dancer/choreographer, and director. She has a wealth of experience and has been teaching Pilates for many years. She went to a Russian school of ballet and unfortunately grew too tall to join the Bolshoi Ballet Company, so she started off her dancing career at the Paris Lido (a Bluebell dancer) and went on to Sunday Night at the London Palladium (if anyone can remember that show!) and many more light entertainment shows followed.

Pilates seemed to be a natural progression from dance for Domini. It is so beneficial to everyone, and makes you very aware of your body and posture. She has presented Pilates in Europe, Australia and Mexico.

Domini teaches the following classes:

Thursday 12:15-13:15pm Pilates
Thursday 13:15-14:15pm Senior Pilates
