katherine

A passionate YOGI, having practiced for over 15 years, led our lovely Katherine to pursue her yoga foundation teaching course with Inner Healing. Ever since she was a student, she has progressed to advanced teacher training and Yoga with Therapy.

She adores drawing on the traditional and ancient practices, Pranayama (breath extension) and Mudras (energy seals), and making them easily accessible and relevant to the modern world.  

 

Flow through sequences of Asanas (postures) working with the mind, body, breath, and spirit in her gently paced Hatha style classes suitable for all levels. 

Katherine also teaches the Reformer movement, Pose Barre, and has a newfound love for Ballet.

ali

Our resident musical theatre connoisseur and actress, at the age of 4, Ali, made the tough choice between trapeze artist or ballerina. Her fear of heights made the decision easy, and ballet it was!

Dance was her passion until she was 11 years old when she completed this with acting! Oxford College and then a top London drama school, followed by a career in this area, teaching aerobics, jazz dance, and water aerobics on the side.

Drawing on her Ballet roots, you can meet Ali at the Barre and centre stage. She teaches both Pose Barre and Pose Barre Flow. Be sure to keep an eye out for her musical theatre dance workshops!

Abi brings traditional elements into each class, drawing on natural elements for inspiration. You can expect flowing asanas, revitalizing pranayama, and oms in each of Abi's classes.

You can join Abi on the Reformer for strength training and a good stretchout.
