Beth

After practising yoga for over a decade, Beth decided to deepen her practice and train to become a teacher. Having tried various styles, it was the fluid movements of Vinyasa Flow yoga that just felt right and she graduated from a yearlong course in 2015. Her teaching style is open and inclusive with an emphasis on exploring the connection between breath and movement, effort and stillness. She aims for you to leave her classes with a sense of calm, ease and connection.

In addition to teaching yoga she is also a qualified Hypnotherapist with a keen interest in meditation and alternative health.
