Meet Julia from June 2017 on in our Yoga studio
Julia turned towards yoga after passing a very stressful time at university, ending up spending more time on the mat than in her lectures.
She qualified as a 200 hour teacher in 2013, training at a school in Sheffield before developing her knowledge further by taking vinyassa, forrest and restorative intensives. This led her to teach at a wide range of venues throughout the UK including sports centres, gyms, universities and studios on everything from Yoga for Womens health and Yoga for Sport. She also worked for Yoga Clicks in Norwich where she was filmed recording yoga videos for their website and was their in house yoga guide.
Interested in the power of yoga and health she went on to qualify as a Nutritional therapist and massage therapist, combining the benefits of all three to create a holistic wellness package. She specialized in holistic and Swedish massage which allows to offer a comprehensive massage experience.
Putting people at ease, aiming for gentle improvement rather than forcing and perfection, identifying personal limitations and strengths and more than anything cultivating a sense of mental ease and stability as well as physical strength and flexibility are her main goals for her classes. She teaches both a challenging but mindful flow as well as a nourishing and restorative yin practice to balance the body and mind.
In addition to yoga her passions include travel, voluntary work and the great outdoors.
Meet Katharina from March until May 2017 in our Yoga shala.
After living in Japan, China and Dubai she became a hatha yoga teacher in 2013. She continued to immerse in Anusara Yoga, following a Yin Yoga Teacher Training with Biff Mitthoefer and lost her heart on Vinyasa Flow, combining breath with movement and awareness, experiencing the body in a dancing mediation. In her class you'll find a slow and challenging sequence suitable for all levels. Katharina encourages you to find your own asana within yourself, to feel, explore and discover your body and it's abilities.
Katharina is also a massage therapist combining Swedish, Lomi Lomi and Deep Tissue massage. She is also a Thai Yoga Massage and Reiki practitioner. For her giving a massage is not only working on your physical body, her work coming from a space that we are more than the physical body. Her approach is giving an holistic experience merging your different bodies to unity.

Massage involves working and acting on the body with pressure – structured, unstructured, stationary, or moving – tension, motion, or vibration, done manually or with mechanical aids. Massage can be applied with the hands, fingers, elbows, knees, forearm, feet or a massage device. Massage can promote relaxation and well-being
Styles we offer
It’s a 2500 years old massage style. It uses passive stretching and gentle pressure along the body’s energy lines to increase flexibility, relieve muscle and joint tension and balance the body’s energy systems. Thai massage is both deeply relaxing and energizing.
Thai massage takes place on a futon mat on the floor, and you wear loose fitting clothing. You start by laying on your back, and the therapist uses gentle compression and stretching techniques to open up your body, beginning with you legs. Some people say Thai massage is a little like doing yoga without any effort, because the therapist will push your body into various positions without any work on your part.
Swedish massage therapy is the modality that comes to mind when most people think about massage. As the best-known type of bodywork performed today, one of the primary goals of the Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body. This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. But Swedish massage therapy goes beyond relaxation. Swedish massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.
The goal of meditation is to focus and quiet your mind, eventually reaching a higher level of awareness and inner calm. It may come as a surprise to learn that you can meditate anywhere and at any time, allowing yourself to access a sense of tranquility and peace no matter what's going on around you. Our yoga teachers are happy to lead your mediation before the daily yoga classes.
