Fi has been teaching for 6years, leaving corporate life behind to pursue her passion in health and wellbeing. Wanting to help people live in healthy, pain free bodies; her teaching style aims to alleviate and improve common causes of pain and stiffness from daily lifestyles – I.e lower back pain, poor posture/sitting at desks all day, recovery for runners/gym goers.
She’s often told I have a very soothing voice when she teaches.
Kate first began yoga for the physical benefits, but soon found there was much more to the practice. In 2017 she completed her 200 hour Hatha YTT in Bali and has gone on to complete more trainings in Yin, Mandala and Yoga Nidra. After teaching abroad in Sri Lanka, Central America and the French Alps, Kate has settled back down in her home town of Leicester and teaches across the county. Kate has a down to earth approach to teaching, offering a safe space for students to tune into their bodies physically and energetically, giving students autonomy and freedom to explore the poses and movements.
Amanda is a Sports Therapist and runs a private sports injury clinic as well that she also runs a Sports Therapy degree here in Loughborough which she set up two years ago. She completed my RYT200 hour training with the Yoga and Aryuveda Centre then went onto do her Hot Yoga CDP in London. Amanda grew up on the beautiful sunny south coast of England and is passionate about Vinyasa flow and hot yoga!
Lucy completely and utterly fell in love with yoga when she lived in Manchester. She was surrounded by all types and styles and she went completely in. Her heart has always been in hot yoga. Just something about the release you get from sweating it out. She qualified to teach only to deepen her understanding however fell further for the science behind the methods.
Cathy trained with Yogahaven in 2015 with the singular notion of teaching Hotpod Yoga having discovered its magical powers in Nottingham and fallen completely in love! The yoga for-real-life concept, accessibility for all, the post-pod glow and the smells (not forgetting the smells) make the pod somewhere she will always want to be, either as a teacher or enthusiastic student. Always hope to make classes welcoming and relaxed with plenty of opportunities to take things a little deeper if you’re feeling full of beans – or dial it back a notch or two if you’re not.
Laura grew up in Loughborough and fell in love with yoga and meditation in 2016. With a background in Dance she craved something that would allow her to regain flexibility whilst building strength and Vinyasa yoga was it! In 2018 she travelled to Rishikesh, India to complete her teacher training in Ashtanga and Hatha Yoga and was lucky enough to teach in Sri Lanka. Her training combined with a degree in Human Biology and personal practice allowed her to gain a deeper understanding of the physical benefits yoga brings to the body and the emotional benefits it brings to the mind. Laura loves early morning classes which gently wake up and energise the body and mind, setting you up for the day.
Rachael has lived her whole life in the Loughborough area, coming from a neighbouring village. She began practicing yoga 15 years ago, when one of her best friends trained to be a teacher. She has since spent many years following her to retreats and classes far and wide and finally decided to take the next step herself in 2018.
Rachael was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in May 2016. Yoga has always played a very important part in her self-care routine. Rachael believes that regular exercise and creating space both physically and mentally is key to keeping a positive outlook on life. This also means that having a somewhat ‘invisible illness’ she understands that everyone has their own personal struggles and their own reason for coming to yoga.
Isabel is from Portugal, she trained as a yoga teacher in February 2019 with Dylan Ayloo, in Sri Lanka. Her training was based in vinyasa power yoga with elements of Forrest yoga. She enjoys teaching vinyasa yoga classes mainly to beginners or people who wants to improve their yoga practice. Personally, she likes to practice intense power yoga although, there are times she really enjoys a less intense flow or restorative yoga.
