I have been teaching yoga since 2004 and graduated with an IYTA diploma in early 2005. The majority of my classes are taught in the classical Hatha style including asana, pranayama, relaxation and meditation techniques. I have also practiced Iyengar yoga from 2004 to 2015 and did a Bikram practice for over two and a half years. Classes vary every week to work on different parts of the body and teaching methods also change to keep the focus fresh. Postures start out basic and can graduate to intermediate/advanced depending on the student's ability.

I have my own private studio and also teach in gyms, community centres and local schools.

In 2012 I completed the 150 hour Pre and Post Natal Diploma with IYTA. 

In 2013/14 I completed the Zenergy Yoga for Kids Foundation, Advanced and Therapy courses. I specialise in Yoga for Teenagers.

In 2019 I completed a 300hr TTC in India on the Yin/Yang and 5 Elements subjects.

I am currently serving as the IYTA President and lecture on the IYTA Teacher Training Course since 2015.

Julie Antill

Thank you for another year of wonderful classes. I would be more stressed and much stiffer if it wasn't for these enjoyable Wednesday sessions.


I just wanted to thank you so very much for your wonderful yoga lessons. I get so much out of them. Thanks for correcting me in the lessons too, so I am doing the exercises properly. You are such a fantastic teacher. 2019
