Helen Arthurs

Helen first started yoga to help her manage epilepsy as stress was a major trigger. Yoga has had such a positive impact in her life. When Helen first tried hot pod she was hooked from the first class & has been coming to pod for quite a few years now and it was what inspired her to do the Teacher Training and share her love of Yoga.

Stacey Wilkins

Stacey turned to yoga purely for the physical benefits. She became hooked very quickly and before she knew it was signed up for teacher training. Stacey enjoys seeing students working hard and sweating during class but above all else has realised the mental benefits are why she continues to show up and teach. She loves nothing more than seeing the lovely relaxed faces of her students at the end of class.

With over 15 years experience having tried out a huge range of classes from South Indian ashrams and strong Hatha, in 2009 she completed a BWY training, and more recently with the excellent Jamie Blowers.
