Hi I'm Grace from GEM Yoga, I discovered yoga just under 10 years go after suffering a running injury. I travelled to India a few years ago to begin my teacher training, and have followed this path ever since, teaching traditional styles of yoga throughout West Yorkshire.
 
I am a keen rock climbing and Ashtanga student attending regular Mysore classes where I am guided by KPJAYI level 2 authorised teacher Joey Miles. I hope to receive his knowledge soon into beginning the practice of intermediate series and to travel to Mysore in the near future.

Hi, I'm Fiona. I come from a dance background and through my dance career I found and practiced both Yoga and Pilates. Movement of the body and how it benefits your health and wellbeing is my passion. I believe that with the correct strength, flexibility and balance the body can stay injury and pain free. Yoga is the magic you need in your life!
After retirement from professional dance I obtained my teaching Diploma in Mat Pilates and I teach both the classical and modern Pilates methods. I completed the British Wheel of Yoga Foundation course and then travelled to Thailand to complete 200hr Yoga Alliance teacher training in Ashtanga Vinyasa with “It’s Yoga” where the mission of yoga is to share the love of the practice.

I believe Yoga and Pilates is for everyone, my classes are energising, creative and fun. I am looking forward to joining the team and teaching the clients at Holistic Wellbeing to share, grow and Yogi together!

Liz Woolley

Advanced Vinyassa Flow class Saturdays 9.30am - 10.30am.  Beginners with a good level of general fitness are also welcome.

Here's a little bit about Liz:

"My first Yoga class was over 20 years ago. Something clicked that day and over the years I’ve taken breaks from Yoga but I am always drawn back to the mat. I once read that Yoga is like a massage from the inside out which totally sums up how my body feels after practice.

In a Yoga class you can work every muscle group in the body, not to seek physical perfection but to train the mind to stay focused. The benefits of this discipline stay with you off the mat and begin to transform how you view the world and your place within it.
In my personal practice I have tried many styles of Yoga but Ashtanga is my main practice. My teachers include Claire Studd, Michelle Griffiths and Nicola Harpin among others. I have attended workshops with Michelle Griffiths, Claire Studd & Joey Miles.

My Vinyasa Flow class is influenced by my Ashtanga practice with a focus on joint mobilisation. I am currently completing my British Wheel of Yoga Teacher Training with Paul Fox & Carol Price. I am completing my Ashtanga Teacher Training in July this year with David Swenson.

Look forward to seeing you in class!"

Michelle Bolton

Kundalini Yoga classes commencing: Thursday 10th May 2018
Time: 9.30am-10.45am, Cost: £7 drop in

A little bit about Michelle:

Yoga recognises that we are all one.  I first came to yoga when I was spiritually hungry.  My journey began by exploring the concept that the body and mind are one which has led me to embrace challenging personal circumstances in a much more holistic and healthy way. 
I am a residential undergraduate of The Sahej Academy led by Hari Har Ji Kaur which is one of four teacher training schools in the UK certified by the Kundalini Research Institute for Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan.  Through my studies and my own personal practice, I am finding freedom at the root of, and within, my own life as well as an ever-present space.

Kundalini: the yoga of awareness. It is not simply about flexibility.  Nor is it competitive.  It is not about the perfect pose. It works on an energetic level. By being aware of your own body and your own limitations this yoga awakens your awareness and takes you into your original Self.  It is an unfolding of your own nature.  Kundalini yoga has helped me to develop my intuition to recognise what is real and what my true values are.  What I love most about this path is that people can experience a complete physical, mental and spiritual balance in just one kriya.  It works so effectively and quickly because of this completeness, balance and energy. 
Students of my classes will find themselves in a safe and nurturing space where they are free to truly be their own authentic selves.  They will be guided in precision and encouraged to sustain their efforts throughout each set so that they can reap and feel the lasting effects long after the class has ended.
