Jessica

Jess has been practicing yoga for many years now and hugely encourages ‘yoga on and off the mat’, where we can apply our yogi philosophies in our everyday lives. Jess strongly aligns with the value of Ahimsa: extending our compassion to all beings and she likes to practice to this theme of non-violence. Jess became a yoga teacher in Edinburgh, the year after she graduated as a Zoologist and her first experience teaching was actually in Húsavík, Iceland, alongside her job as a whale biologist there. She would teach whale and ocean themed yoga in the Húsavík Whale Museum and dedicate each class to a different theme all about the whales and the ocean. Her goal was to hold a space where people could dedicate their thoughts to these magnificent beings, whilst also moving and thanking the practice of yoga that has been earned over generations of existence and has travelled the globe (just like some of the whales have). The whale yoga is accompanied by humpback whale sounds and footage. Jess is a firm believer that yoga is for everyone: a beautiful way of life both for the mind and body, and so complimentary to those who do a lot of sports/ running as it allows for both strength and flexibility.

Jack

I began my yoga journey in hopes that it would help with a lower back injury I suffered in the gym many years ago. However I fell in love with the practice after feeling the incredible mental health benefits from it.

After practicing for a few years and working as a personal trainer, I wanted to share my passion for yoga with as many people as I could do. This lead me to jumping onto a 200hr ytt course with hotpod themselves.

My aim is to combine elements of strength and softness simultaneously in classes with an emphasis on meditation in motion.

Chade

I discovered yoga when I was 15 years old, and I instantly fell in love with everything about it. The practice of yoga became a part of me and allowed me to find myself in ways that I never knew existed.

In 2018, I completed my first 200hr teacher training so that I could not only deepen my own connection to yoga, but so that I could share this holistic practice with others too. I teach a dynamic vinyasa class that embodies the union of the mind, body and breath. My classes allow for individual discovery and creativity as we move through strong and playful asanas while integrating mindfulness of the breath and the self.

My intention is to share as much of my light, love and knowledge with you, so that you can continue expanding into the most authentic version of yourself. I can’t wait to share your Yoga Journey with you.
