Kat is a 550 hour trained yogi. She’s been practising yoga for over 10 years and decided to study in India, not to become a teacher (initially), but to learn more about why Yoga made her feel so calm and peaceful as well as physically strong. She knew from day 1 of her training that she just had to share the gift of yoga with others.

Nicole loves creating classes that offer both fun challenges and deep relaxation. She was recommended yoga for an injury and has clocked up hundreds of teacher training hours in a number of styles. She loves sound healing and yoga nidra, but when she discovered hot yoga she got hooked on moving in the heat. Nicole believes yoga isn’t about the perfect pose – it’s about doing what feels good and right for your body, and having fun with it. Expect her flow and dynamic classes to be upbeat, and her nurturing classes to leave you feeling calm and stretched out.
Jess first tried Yoga as a student, dipping in and out of classes throughout her 20s and early 30s.

Jess’ classes are friendly, fun and accessible.
