Allison Maxwell – I was first introduced to the great benefits of yoga 26 years ago.  A friend suggested I try it because I was suffering from frequent headaches.  After just one yoga course, my headaches reduced, I was sleeping better and I was hooked!  Since then, I’ve tried just about every style of yoga on offer.  In 1999, I attended a two-week Ayurvedic yoga holiday in South India and it changed my life.  On my return to England I enrolled on the British Wheel of Yoga training course and I obtained my diploma in 2002.  A year later, I trained with Christiane Kerr at Calm for Kids to teach yoga to children.  Then in 2005, I completed the Cambridge Active Birth course to teach yoga to mothers and babies.

Allison’s classes are a traditional Hatha style yoga, placing emphasis on postures, correct breathing and relaxation. Her style is fun-loving and friendly and her classes are suitable for all ages and abilities.

She would like to make Ashtanga more accessible to those who are put off by its reputation. With modifications whenever and wherever necessary, she believes that this moving meditation practice can be enjoyed by all levels and abilities.

Elka Morgado – Hello, my name is Elka. I’m originally from Mexico and was first introduced to the plethora of benefits of yoga in 2008 when I was suffering with back problems. The results were profound and since then I’ve never looked back.

Unknowingly, my life would change and lead me on a great journey into my own wellbeing, health and strength, far beyond simply resolving back issues.

In 2018, I became a Hatha Yoga instructor, certified by the Yoga Alliance school Samma Karuna in Thailand.

My classes focus on conscious breathing, body alignment and developing strength of body and mind. I look forward to us practising yoga together.

Namaste!
