Our Teachers

When you start practicing you’ll notice that our teachers soon recognise you, know your name and support your experience at the studio. Our teachers are all different, with diverse lives, styles and backgrounds but what is consistent across the studio is that all our teachers are kind, committed and inspirational. We recommend practicing with as many teachers as possible to find the ones who have the greatest impact on your practice and your life.
