After growing up in the area, Rachel left Newbury aged 16 to pursue her showbiz dreams. It was during her time at dance school that she was first introduced to yoga. She absolutely hated it. She couldn’t understand why anyone would want to stay still and breathe, when they could be running around dancing. It wasn’t until she graduated and had to face the ‘real world’ that she fell in love with yoga.
Her yoga practice became an integral part of her busy life in London, keeping her fit and healthy and able to better manage the stresses of her performing career.
12 years after leaving, Rachel returned to Newbury after a life-changing accident abruptly ended her career. Yoga has played a vital role in her recovery, which allowed her to go deeper into her practice and ultimately ignited her passion for sharing her experience with others.
Now a fully qualified Yoga Teacher, Rachel is creating classes that teach a sustainable yoga practice for everybody, no matter their experience, body type or health status.
Rachel also offers one- to- one sessions, and is particularly interested in how yoga can help people with Chronic Illnesses and other health conditions.
Katt first tried yoga whilst at University but started seeking yoga classes more regularly to help manage stress from her fast paced job in fashion and busy city living.
Yoga and mindfulness practices helped her find calm and balance off the mat. Wanting to know more about the ancient practice, she decided to quit her job, move out of London and travel to Costa Rica to do her 200hr yoga teacher training.
Following her training in Hatha/Vinyasa she spent a month teaching in a studio in Medellin, Columbia before returning back to the UK.
Katt is based in Newbury and offers moderate paced Hatha yoga classes for the beginner/intermediate student.
Each week her classes explore different asanas (postures) and pranayama (breathing practices), nurturing the body, mind and soul.
Her students step off the mat feeling refreshed, nourished and balanced.
From beginning her yoga journey initially to heal a knee injury over 10 years ago, Holly became drawn to the deep rooted spiritual essence of yoga and it is this that led her to experiencing a transformation in body, mind and spirit. She began to live life more authentically having experienced what she describes as an awakening of her inner self & an unblocking of barriers to achieving true happiness.
After 13 years of teaching Psychology & Sociology Holly decided to take a step back from her teaching profession in 2017 after completing her 200 hour RYT in Vinyasa & Alchemy in Costa Rica. She has since journeyed further to gain a 60 hour Teen Yoga & Mindfulness qualification with Charlotta Martinus, Usai Reiki level II Practitioner Diploma, Indian Head Massage Diploma and recently 70 hour advanced Seasonal Yin Yoga Teacher Training.
Holly’s classes are each unique in style, energy and flow, and each infused with a mix of yoga philosophy, creative sequencing and meditation. The foundations of her yoga are that of the seasons and the five elements of Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Space.
The space she holds is one that guides unique experimentation and self-inquiry on the mat; a light-hearted, authentic and energetic offering that creates balance and peace and supports healing and transformation so that you may live wholeheartedly off the mat. Expect to come away from the mat feeling revitalised in mind and body with a fostered sense of joy and a spring in your step!
Kylie’s background was in dance, she studied at Elmhurst Ballet School and has a 1st Class BA Hons in Choreography and Dance as well as a Post Graduate Diploma in Education.
Having taught in schools for many years, Kylie’s yoga journey began in 2015, following breast cancer, she was left physically unable to return to her job, so she came to a class out of desperation to gain back her mobility, having no idea what a profound effect yoga would have on all aspects of her life.
Once she realised how yoga had helped her recover and overcome anxiety, depression and generally accepting herself for who she was, she knew she needed to share this with others.
Kylie completed her Children’s Yoga and Mindfulness Teacher Training with Yogabeez.com, then a 200hr YTT at Suryalila in Spain with Vidya of Frog Lotus International. So inspired, she then continued and did an Envision Yoga teacher training in Portugal and has recently done a Yoga for Cancer course.
Kylie’s classes focus on building people up to be able to practice Vinyasa flow, with a real emphasis on the connection between breath and continuous movement. Kylie also hopes to inspire a positive mindset and help people realise how to extend their yoga practice throughout their every day life, rather than confining it to the time they spend on the mat.
