About Us
Yvonne Hill Teacher My   first   introduction   to   yoga   was   probably   about   25 years   ago.   It   was   an   evening   class   at   a   local   school where   I   spent   the   whole   time   lying   down   on   the floor    trying    to    relax.    I    was    bored    to    tears    and decided   then   that   yoga   was   not   for   me,   at   least   not yet.    I    needed    something    a    bit    more    challenging. Some   years   later   I   attended   an   Iyengar   yoga   class at   a   local   gym,   this   didn’t   hold   me   either.   I   was   not to   be   beaten.   In   my   place   of   work   we   had   a   sports and   social   group   that   introduced   yoga   in   to   the work   place.   This   was   held   in   the   ‘bar’,   yes   the   bar! Now   this   was   more   like   it!   Twice   a   week   I   would take   to   my   yoga   mat   and   spend   my   lunch   hour flowing   through   sun   salutations   and   warrior   postures   and   then   finally   into   a   well-earned   relaxation   posture. This   was   my   lightbulb   moment.   I   now   understood   what   that   relaxation   was   about   all   those   years   earlier   it   was Savasana. Unfortunately   this   was   short   lived.   My   job   expanded   and   I   worked   away   from   the   office   more   and   more. Meaning   my   yoga   journey   was   put   on   hold   yet   again.   It   wasn’t   until   I   retired   6   years   ago   that   I   took   to   my   yoga mat   again,   first   of   all   it   was   a   hatha   flow   class   with   lots   of   breathing   techniques,   then   sivananda   were   I   learned the   basic   five   principles.   Then   I   was   introduced   to   hot   yoga   and   Kundalini,   I   liked   these   too,   and   of   course   at   the end   of   every   class   savasana.   Eventually   I   was   practicing   yoga   everyday   and   it   became   an   integrated   part   of   my life.   I   loved   it   all.   The   teachers,   the   people   I   met   and   the   friendships   I   built.   The   way   yoga   made   me   feel,   think, and most importantly allowed me to look at life from a different perspective. In   2012   I   was   invited   to   join   a   teacher   training   course.   It   wasn’t   my   intention   to   become   a   yoga   teacher, although   I   did   want   to   deepen   my   knowledge   and   widen   my   experience   so   I   did   my   first   TT   certificate.   In   2013   I continued   my   journey   with   further   training   in   Rishikesh   India   were   amongst   many   other   forms   of   yoga   I   was introduced   to   Ashtanga.   I   am   now   a   certified   500   hour   Yoga   Alliance   teacher   and   I   am   currently   attending   a British   Wheel   foundation   course.   I   enjoy   all   aspects   of   yoga   and   have   practiced   and   experienced   various   styles including   Hatha   ,   sivananda   ,   kundalini   ,   yin   ,   vinyasa   flow   ,   Iyengar,   ashtanga,   yoga   Nidra   and   more   recently Somatics   all   of   which   I   bring   elements   of   to   my   classes.   For   me   yoga   is   ageless   it   benefits   everybody   and   unifies all   generations.   It   doesn’t   matter   when   or   how   you   find   yoga   the   hardest   part   is   to   step   on   the   mat   and   the   rest will follow. I am so grateful after all these years I have found my niche, my dharma or maybe it found me.
