Amelia Adrian

For Amelia, yoga is about creating space: physically, emotionally and mentally. The true beauty of yoga is that it meets you exactly where you are. It is for everyone. Amelia has been practicing meditation for nearly 20 years and yoga for 10 years. She teaches a range of styles including Vinyasa Flow, Yin Yoga, Yoga Nidra, Meditation and Aroma Yoga taking inspiration from her teachers Elena Brower, Rod Stryker, Norman Blair among many others, to whom she is deeply grateful.

Amelia’s intention in teaching is to create space and act as a guide for you to pause and breathe on the mat. Her wish is for us to carry this spaciousness off the mat and back into our own life, to our friends, family and community, learning to live from a place of intention and conscious choice rather than reactivity.

Matt Gill

Whilst it was the physicality of yoga that initially drew Matt to the practice - in particular the transitions and the flow of movement - he soon found that there were many benefits beyond just the physical as yoga brought greater balance and awareness into his life.

His teaching combines contemporary understanding of the ways in which we move with the wisdom and insight of the yoga and mindfulness traditions and he aims to present these practices in a way that is respectful to their heritage, culture and original intentions.

'Dynamic, challenging, vinyasa-orientated, The Freestyle Yoga Project, is geared towards encouraging teachers and students to think for themselves, and investigate what’s going on over the side of their particular yogic box'. This philosophy, as well as his dance training, informs Gerrard’s teaching. He provides students with classes that offer challenge and a safe space in which to unburden insecurities and physical blockages.

Gerrard is a Yoga Alliance UK certified teacher. He gained his initial yoga experience from his professional dance training at De Montfort University and The Northern School of Dance and was so intrigued that he started practicing in the Ashtanga, Jivamukti, Kundalini and Vinyasa Yoga. He went on to study with Abby Hoffman on her Embodied Dance Pro 60 course, which explores the connection with yoga and dance, after which he began his 200 hour teacher training at the Freestyle Yoga Project with Mark Freeth and Anna Robertshaw.

Steve McGoldrick

Steve realised that it was in his greatest time of need that yoga became much more than a physical practice. 

He began practising yoga in 2012 when he travelled to New Zealand and from that point on he was hooked. Steve began to practice at Breeze occasionally and participate in online yoga classes and began to experience the benefits that yoga had to offer. With this new-found love Steve began to change his approach even to his own training and his clients as he is a professional personal trainer of six years. It wasn’t until the last year that Steve wanted to ramp up his training, so he travelled to the Sampoorna School of Yoga in India to fully immerse himself in his teacher training.

He has now committed to turning his training and teachings for longevity, concentrating more on movement and mobility and incorporating inversions into his classes. Steve brings his 'cheeky chappy' nature to his classes but also instills strength and confidence to his students helping them grow into a stronger and confident practitioner in a fun but challenging way.
