Amy discovered yoga in 2006 when searching for alternative methods of healing lower back pain. She found in yoga a gentle way in which she was able to
both heal her own pain and gain a deeper understanding of her body. She has practised continuously wherever she has travelled throughout the world
and found that it has enhanced all aspects of her life.
She studied psychology at university, basing most of her research around autism. When working with those with autism, many of whom dealt with anxiety, depression and lack of confidence, she found that some simple yogic breathing techniques had a positive impact on their life. Seeing these results gave Amy her reason to become a teacher.
Amy joined our team in May 2017 and has since then teaching mindful Vinyasa, Yin and restorative classes She is passionate about sharing all yoga has taught her and hopes that will enjoy joining her on your journey.
Éloïse is a yoga teacher, somatic therapist and massage therapist from Paris, France. She discovered yoga 15 years ago when she was attending the National
Dance School of Paris.
At the dance school, Eloise mainly trained in contemporary dance, but also became proficient in ballet and jazz. At the time, yoga was more of a workout. It was a great way to maintain flexibility and improve strength.
It is from this point on that she felt compelled to explore yoga beyond its physical aspect. She traveled to India to deepen her practice and knowledge. While in India, she received her yoga teacher certification at the Vinyasa Yoga Foundation in Rishikesh.
Since then, yoga has truly become a way of life for her. She practices pranayamas, meditation and asanas daily and sees herself as an eternal student of life. One of her favorite ways of learning, is actually through teaching yoga. Eloise believes that each student has something to teach her. She looks forward to her own growth, not only as a teacher, but as a human being.
Eloise understands that everyone is different, evolving at their own rhythm and journey. She teaches knowing that each person brings their own experience, flexibility and strengths. She guides her classes with patience, giving voice cues, hands-on adjustments and options to fit all levels. She has personally experienced and has seen in others how powerful and healing yoga can be and hopes that by teaching, she can help yoga to touch more hearts.

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.
