Dawn has had an ongoing relationship with yoga for over 30 years. Her interest was intensified six years ago after attending Diane Lee's Yoga classes which led to Dawn training as a teacher in the first cohort of the Academy for Yoga Training, Bath.
Dawn encourages her students to find space in postures, breath and mind to provide a balance to the demands of 21st Century living. She has a particular interest in Yin Yoga and enjoys bringing elements of this into all her classes.
My love of Yoga began in 2012. After moving across the country, finding a new home and school for my boys and recovering from a serious illness I was exhausted, stressed, and I was down but not out. I needed to heal.
I found a class in the centre of Bath, just once a week to start with and I began to practice Yoga with Diane Lee. I rapidly started to feel the health benefits. Each class helped me to grow stronger, more flexible and fearless, both on and off the mat. So much so, it inspired me to train to become a teacher and I competed the Yoga Alliance certified ‘Academy For Yoga Training’ Hatha Yoga 200hr course in September 2018.

I am an enthusiastic and outgoing person who has always enjoyed learning and improving my life and the life of those around me. Discovering the practice of yoga 8 years ago has changed my approach to life and situations completely.
Studying the depths of the practice in India has been the best experience of my whole life (after giving birth to my daughter Penelope of course :) )
Natalie has been teaching yoga for over 10 years and has a wealth of experience in the fitness/health industry. This definitely comes across in her informative and creative style of teaching that enables the student to learn more about themselves so they begin to understand their yoga practice at a deeper level.
Natalie trained with highly regarded Ashtanga teachers David Swenson and John Scott, and her love of Vinyasa Flow, also led her to study with Meghan Currie and Jason Crandell.
Robyn comes from a preforming arts and educational background, which shines though in her fun, welcoming and inclusive yoga classes.
Robyn’s style of teaching is dynamic and powerful, taking all the best bits form a variety of different traditional yoga lineages and sprinkling on a touch of modern flow. Robyn makes sure everyone gets all the benefits from yoga without taking themselves too seriously!
My yoga journey started as a teenager when at 14 I started going to weekly classes with my mum. Since then I have practiced Iyengar, Bikram, Vinyasa, Hatha, Yin, Scaravelli and most recently Ashtanga.
As a teacher I see my role as being sharing my passion and love for yoga with my students and hopefully inspiring them to find their own path with yoga in a safe and welcoming environment.
I have trained with the British Wheel of Yoga and with the Yoga Alliance. I am also looking forward to undertaking Ashtanga teaching training with John Scott in 2017.
