I have studied with many teachers across the country and have been teaching since 2012. I have a British Wheel of Yoga Diploma in teaching yoga (Level 4 on the National Framework), taught by Andrea Newman (now part of the SWYA). I came to yoga in January of 2009 mid-way through my bachelor's degree with an inquisitive attitude and a stiff back. I remember feeling an unbelievable sense of freedom of movement and openness in my head and heart after that first class; it was fantastic and I couldn't wait to find out more. I was soon attending a minimum of 6 hours of classes a week and going to workshops on the weekends. All my classes have a Hatha Yoga framework which includes static and dynamic asanas (postures), breath awareness and relaxation. My classes are designed to be suitable for all levels - providing modifications for those who want them and further development for students who want to be challenged. I always aim to provide a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere to practice in and a safe space to release tension and alleviate stress. I provide safe practice, good alignment, body awareness, and regularly incorporate the use of yoga breathing techniques into my classes. Due to strong Iyengar influences throughout my yoga journey I sometimes use props to help students reach their full potential in a pose.
I run small group classes (max 6 people) on Wednesday mornings at The Old Rectory Clinic where I can focus on individual and tailored support.
The Old Rectory Clinic in Iron Acton is conveniently located with easy access from Yate, Chipping Sodbury, Frampton Cotterell, Coalpit Heath, Winterbourne, Westerleigh, Thornbury and the surrounding areas.

I've practiced yoga for many years (after finding myself drawn to it after suffering from back problems). Very quickly after my first class I became hooked and noticed the many benefits, both physically and mentally. I finally decided to fly to India to do my yoga teacher training, during my time there I could fully immerse myself into the spirituality of the practice.
From a young age Kate’s calling has been to connect with people deeply and offer them compassion, empathy and counsel. She has been practising yoga for 10 years and comes from a family of three generations of yoga practitioners and teachers. As with many, she started yoga to get fit. However, what she gained was so much richer than that.
Mischa first fell for yoga in 2001 while at university completing a degree in French Literature and Dance. She loved how yoga, unlike the world of dance, cultivates an ethos of looking after yourself and those around you. Since completing teacher training with Bristol City Yoga in 2010, Mischa has continued to study with teachers from wide-ranging backgrounds and experience. She loves sharing the exploration of this profound practice with her students.
I have been studying and attending my own yoga classes for several years and have just recently started teaching since I graduated from the Shanti Centre Training School in Bristol and Italy with my 200 hour Yoga and Spiritual development teacher training in the study of classical Yoga Philosophy and traditional Hatha Yoga Practice certification.
