Gemma’s yoga journey began around 15 years ago when she started practicing Bikram yoga (hot 26/2) She loves the intensity and consistency of this particular type of class.
Gemma realised that yoga was not only helping her physically but it was also positively impacting all aspects of her life and created a great balance with her fast paced and pressurised job role.
Gemma completed the 200hr Teacher Training in Morocco January 2018 and went straight onto teach Vinyasa in a hot studio in Brighton. Gemma currently teaches at a number of local gyms and another yoga studio in Horsham.

Kate first discovered yoga almost 25 years ago, initially attracted to the physical practice, but soon experienced its transformative power in relation to her own mood, mind and overall wellbeing.

I was introduced to yoga as a teenager and from the first moment I stepped onto my mat I was hooked. I completed my training following two years of study and several years as a class assistant before I taught solo for the first time. I have continued to study, learn and adapt my teachings over the years.
After moving to Horsham back in 1990’s I began teaching here and still love it as much as I did back then. I have taught in schools, colleges and studio’s teaching all ages and abilities and I still get a thrill out of seeing people gain confidence and growth through their practise as well as the joy when people experience yoga for the first time. I am have also been lucky enough to guide pregnant ladies safely through their pregnancy and post natal journeys.
Following a total hip replacement back in 2019 I have a greater understanding and appreciation for how our practice changes through time.
Vinyasa classes are a real joy as they allow me the freedom to experiment with different flows that suit different themes, times of the year and I can really cater for all my class members.
I also love to teach yin yoga, as this is floor based, slow, nourishing and meditative and balances out the physicality of my vinyasa practice.
