Matt began his journey with yoga in response to an inner calling and discovered a way to connect the mind, body and spirit in flowing, elegant and graceful sequences of movement. As a dedicated student of Yogi Ashokananda and Himalayan Hatha yoga, Matt brings a sense of strength and dynamism to his classes with a focus on the breath, the alignment of the body and the inherent strength and wisdom within our physical form. Matt is a practitioner of many holistic therapies, including Reflexology, Aromatherapy, Crystal Therapy and Reiki, which has allowed him to glimpse the golden thread of all healing and bodywork modalities and their common roots in the science and practice of yoga.

Yoga came into Risa’s life over a decade ago whilst writing a newspaper article about a new studio in town. She never imagined how much this would change her life. Initially, she was drawn to the asana but it was the transformation in her personal life and challenges with anxiety, stress and migraines that kept her going deeper into yoga. This is the magic that Risa shares as a teacher – how yoga can shape and improve life far beyond the mat. Risa’s classes are accessible and filled with warmth and humour. All backed by a motivating soundtrack she invites her students to discover what their bodies need and what their minds can let go of. Risa teaches classes across London ranging from restorative yoga, mindful and dynamic flow, specialising in yoga for sleep and insomnia.

After training as a dancer and performing across Europe and the Middle East, Amanda came across yoga and was instantly hooked. Yoga complemented her dance training, helped her with recovery from injuries and made the bustle of London a little easier to cope with. Since completing her initial teacher training with The Power Yoga Company in 2015, she is now a 500 hour Certified Yoga Teacher.
Amanda teaches a dynamic Vinyasa Yoga class, drawing on influences from a dance and athletic background. Focusing on breath and alignment, the practice will help build muscle tone and strength as well as improve flexibility. In addition to the physical benefits, the practice incorporates mindfulness and meditation to destress. Sure to challenge but also leave you feeling grounded and relaxed.
Francesca grew up in London and from a young age trained as an Irish dancer. She then spent a few years travelling the world with shows including ‘Michael Flatley’s Lord of the Dance’.
She started Yoga nearly 10 years ago to relieve physical injury and improve flexibility. After some time, Yoga became an important part of her weekly routine. That was especially because she started to feel transformational changes in not just physical tension and tightness, but more importantly her mental health. She noticed she was calmer and more at peace within herself day to day.
She then went on to complete her first training in Ashtanga Vinyasa with Santosha Yoga in 2016. Now, countless classes, workshops and trainings later, Francesca loves sharing Vinyasa, Yin and Yoga Nidra online and in person. She aims to always create a space for you to feel safe, supported, encouraged and (most importantly) happy!
Luci’s journey into yoga began thirteen years ago whilst at University when she was introduced to hot yoga by a friend. Initially recognising the physical benefits it wasn't long before she recognised the mental and emotional ones as well.
Going on to try other forms of yoga Luci immediately fell in love with Yin yoga from the first class she experienced, so much so that she went on to do her 200 TT in Bali in Yin and Ashtanga, chosen predominantly because it had the yin component... and was in Bali!
In alignment with the values of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Luci believes that both the physical and emotional are connected and that wellbeing is found by harmonising body and mind therefore an all encompassing approach is best to achieving this. Her classes are aimed to create stillness in the body and peace in the mind. Classes are set to relaxing music to help achieve the full restorative effects Luci hopes to bring to class attendees.
