Inspired by music legend Madonna’s love of yoga, Bessie started practicing Ashtanga yoga in the late 90’s. Living in London at the time, Bessie fell in love with the practice – hot, sweaty, dynamic and athletic which transformed her physically and helped her achieve mental clarity and calmness off the mat. Bessie completed her 200 hour TT at Yoga Dharma in Southend and fulfilled a dream of travelling to New York to study with the inspirational team at Laughing Lotus.
Bessie loves working with both beginner and experienced students and her classes are aimed at delivering both balance and fun.

Caz started her yoga journey 15 years ago, attending classes with a variety of different tutors and styles. At the time, life was more fast-paced, working in the City and balancing her passion for fitness. For Caz, yoga was definitely the place where she could ”be just me”.

Having had enough of the City and quite by chance, Caz met an inspirational lady who guided her in the right direction – this is when she started to find her true self and her passion of yoga grew deeper.

Caz left the City in 2015 and in 2016 decided to take the next step to becoming a yoga teacher. She gained her 200-hour Yoga Alliance accreditation. Classically Hatha trained, with a deep focus on alignment, the positive effects of the breath on the body, the feedback the body gives you and the overall sense of “feeling good”.

Caz is friendly and approachable, which is reflected in her teaching style.
