She immediately fell in love with the spiritual and physical benefits of yoga which led her to undertake her 200hours YTT in Thailand.

Jo fell in love with Yoga almost 8 years ago while living in Hong Kong where she also undertook her Iyenger based training. From taking her very first class to becoming a teacher she discovered the many multifaceted benefits that yoga can offer. From the positive physical and mental effects to increased confidence and accepting things she could not change. Yoga helps her to put things in to perspective; reminding her not to worry about the small stuff. When things get tough and challenging.... The remedy is always your Yoga mat.
Lucy started Yoga in 2010 when she went to Boston (USA) to stay with her Dad, his friend was an
Ashtanga teacher and she was invited along to a class. Lucy loved it and went every day for 6 weeks. She loved the strength and commitment she felt at classes. Once Lucy came back she then went to classes at the gym before finding Hot Yoga. This was it for her. Heat and Yoga was bliss. A sweaty workout without having to run! The studio where she was practicing then offered up teacher training and she couldn’t sign up quick enough!

Dani De Simone
Dani started Yoga as a compliment to her busy-bee routine & in particular to her running. Little did she know that as she struggled into her downward-facing dog she was beginning an exciting Yoga journey which would take her from Nepal, to Bali & the Mountains of Northern Spain. Yoga has become much more than stretching, though it has massively enhanced my running performance, it has become the Yin to my Yang, the calm to my life.
