Julee found yoga when searching for a way to be pain free after a wake-boarding accident in 1998. At first it was the physicality of the practice that she loved. Her muscles were tight, she couldn’t sit up straight and needed at least two blocks to help her. After time, Julee fell in love with the other ways in which yoga transformed her life. Yoga has taught her patience, perseverance and commitment, and more importantly, the ability to support others along the same path.
After a long wonderful journey, Julee is pain-free and her orthopaedic consultant tells her that any other person would not be walking in the way she is today. She puts it down to yoga.
Julee is a graduate of Shiva Rae, Sivaram Scott Orton and Prana Vinyasa. She has practiced and studied with a range of yoga schools namely Anusara Yoga, Jivamukti Yoga & Para Yoga, systems that she continues to train and practice with today. She believes in teaching yoga as an inside-outside journey that supports your life story. This is why she wants to share it with all her heart.
Lou began practising yoga to reduce the symptoms of stress that were beginning to show in her busy career and lifestyle. She was surprised how quickly the positive changes appeared within her overall well-being and the incredible benefits yoga provided. In 2015, Lou made the decision to leave her career in Marketing and Advertising and started a new chapter of her life. She travelled to Costa Rica to complete her immersive teacher training in Hatha, Vinyasa and Restorative yoga.
Lou teaches an energy filled class with flowing sequences set to music. She will guide you whilst placing an emphasis on your breathing, focusing the mind, stretching and challenging the body. She will encourage you to be present and kind to yourself whilst finding your individual balance of strength, fluidity and inner stillness, both on and off the mat.
Katy found yoga as a tool to manage anxiety and stress throughout her teenage years, initially using it as a form of exercise, Katy soon realised the calming effect it had on her nervous system. A few years later, Katy completed her Vinyasa Flow & Ashtanga Teacher Training in Goa, India, followed by an intensive and inspiring training week in Yoga for Teens & Young Adults with the world-renowned Charlotta Martinus.
Every class Katy teaches is grounded with an intention and taught with authenticity, humility and the notion of being kind towards yourself.
Katy teaches Vinysasa, Mindful Flow, Yoga Sculpt and Barre at the Ebb&Flow studio in Surrey as well as being the main teacher for all the beginners.
As one of our retreat organisers, she teaches guided meditation and Yoga, plus she arranges all the small details on retreat including working with the private chefs about the recipes which is a particular talent and love of Katys.
Lucy spent 10 years working as Fashion Buyer in London and Europe. Practising throughout her career she loved Yoga for keeping her body moving and her love for this ancient science quickly grew. During her maternity leave she embarked on teacher training to deepen her practice and hasn’t looked back. Lucy has practiced various forms of yoga including Hot Yoga, Vinyasa Flow, Hatha, Kundalini and Ashtanga. Lucy undertook a Yoga Alliance 200 hours RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher) course in 2014 with Jill Jones an inspirational Senior RYT. Lucy focuses on connecting asana (posture) with pranayana (breath control) and postures are built around a series of vinyasa sequences (flow) followed by a savasana (relaxation) at the end.
Lucy’s aim is to design and adapt classes according to the needs of individual students building strength and flexibility in the body. The modern world can be stressful and yoga is a great tool to help better understand body and mind leaving you with a sense of wellbeing and calm. Lucy’s love of yoga inspires her teaching and passion to share her experiences with others. She continues to further her teaching though workshops and her own practice at home and in the studio. She is currently undertaking a 300 hour advanced teacher training with Yoga London which means when qualified (Jan 2019) she will be a 500 hour teacher with considerable experience.
