Rachael Berry – yoga instructor
Rachael initially loved the physical benefits her yoga practice brought to her healthy holistic life.

Trained in Bhakti yoga, Rachael’s classes provide a space to nurture, be present, and to be compassionate to oneself. Rachael teaches students to become aware of the connections of mind, body, and breath. Leaving with an open heart and grounded feet.

Jo Green – yoga instructor
Jo’s journey began just like many others; very simply, she wanted to be able to touch my toes so she began practising Yoga for its physical benefits such as strength and flexibility but soon she realised that it was much more powerful than anticipated. Jo fell in love with the practice and the positive effects it had on both her mind and body, on and off the mat. She is trained in Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Rocket and Yin and wholeheartedly believes that balance is key in every aspect of life; where we have Yang, we must have Yin.
Jo teaches a dynamic class that focuses on linking breath with movement to build strength, flexibility and balance. She will guide you through your practice providing alignment cues and modifications (perfect if you are a beginner or more advanced yogi). You will find this class both powerful and challenging and she hopes to have you leaving feeling a combination of relaxed, rejuvenated and empowered.

This year she plans on training in 25 hour advanced Yin with Hugh Lee. 300 hour Vinyasa with Kristine Ragus, and Women’s Nude Yoga with Rosie Rees.
