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.

Tonia Jones – I have been practicing Yoga for a number of years with various teachers of different Yoga disciplines and traditions.

Having enjoyed and benefited from the alignment focus of Iyengar and Anusara Yoga, I have gone on to develop a passion for Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga and have been fortunate enough to study under David Swenson, one of the World’s foremost Ashtanga Yoga teachers.
I completed my first 200 hour teacher training here in Worcestershire then went on to complete a 40 hour Ashtanga Yoga teacher training course with David Swenson in Manchester. More recently, I was lucky enough to spend two very intense weeks in India at Govardhan Ecovillage, a centre for Krishna Consciousness, where I completed another 200 hour Ashtanga and Yoga Therapy teacher training course.
I continue my own yoga practice with discipline and dedication because it makes absolute sense to me in a world which often seems difficult to understand.

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!

Lily Lowe – I started my own personal yoga journey 6 years ago and from my first class I was hooked!  In 2017 I decided to take the leap and sign myself onto the British Wheel of Yoga Foundation Course and the BWY Diploma course to become a qualified instructor.  I am currently 2 years into the 4 year course and I’m now qualified to start teaching.  I am learning something new every day and I can’t wait to share that knowledge with others.

 

My classes are focused on finding comfort and space in the postures and learning how to have fun with yoga.  I also like to include other elements of yoga within the posture work that are an integral part of the BWY course.
