Mary has been teaching yoga in Cheltenham since 2013. Mary began practicing yoga in 2001. After moving to England from the US, Mary completed a 500 hour yoga teaching diploma with the British Wheel of Yoga. She continues to enhance her knowledge by regularly attending trainings and intensives. In addition to her main training, Mary holds certificates to teach restorative yoga, yin yoga, pregnancy yoga and well woman yoga.
Mary’s classes are welcoming and lighthearted. They are built around creating classes that are well rounded, mixing challenge with gentle aspects. Pranayama (breath control practices) and continued awareness of breath are a key components. Mary weaves aspects of subtle body and yoga philosophy into her classes.
Mary has created a serene boutique yoga studio to provide the benefits of yoga to the Charlton Kings community.
“You shine a beautiful light on yoga and I remember those early studio days enjoying your Sunday morning classes. Your inclusive and reassuring style of teaching has left a mark on me that you may not be aware of.” Claudia
“I feel a strong connection to you, a real fondness for you, and your yoga teaching has brought me a lot of calmness and happiness, as well as strength and bendiness :).” Alison
“You have enlightened me and thanks to your caring, professional teaching and altruistic teaching you have given me an immense gift – the love of Yoga. Thank you…” Maureen
Pauline originally trained as a dancer and went on to perform professionally in ballet and musical theatre productions in the West End, UK, Germany and Austria.
After having a family, she started practicing yoga and discovered its many stress relieving benefits. She qualified to teach in 2002 and became a popular teacher of ballet and yoga in Hamburg, Germany, acquiring experience teaching all levels from professional/vocational to adult beginners and children.
Since returning to the UK in 2013 she has taught hatha, gentle and dynamic yoga forms and meditation in various studios, health clubs, companies, schools, universities, care homes and privately across the South West. She organises and runs yoga retreats and workshops in the UK, Germany and Spain.
Pauline’s yoga classes are energizing, fun and refreshing. They are designed to improve posture, breath awareness, to strengthen, tone and detoxify the body and to focus and calm the mind.
Reut went to her first yoga class at fourteen years old and since then yoga has become an integral part of her life. She found that practicing yoga made her feel physically and mentally strong and improved her sense of connection with herself. It also just felt really good! And she also hopes to bring that sentiment out in her students.
Yoga has led the way for her to reveal the deep connection between the mind and body. Reut is also a Natuoprath, and has a special interest in health and nutrition. She incorporates her knowledge and experience in these fields into her yoga practice and classes.
Reut completed her 200 hour vinyasa teacher training in Cheltenham and pregnancy yoga training in London. Reut’s classes focus on breath and movement, while remaining both strong and lighthearted, utilising the practice to become more present and aware of body and mind. This creates focus and stillness, vital in our busy lives, generating a sense of calm and vitality.
I was initially drawn to yoga to complement my gym based fitness. Within a few classes I was hooked, drawn by not only the effect Yoga had on me physically but also emotionally and mentally.
Yoga teaches you how to really listen to, and connect with, your body, your breath, and your mind. This connection is fundamental not only to my own personal practice, but also to my teaching.
Drawing from the flow of Vinyasa and Hatha yoga and also the more passive and longer held postures of Yin yoga, my classes include a combination of flowing postures and held postures, to challenge the body in different ways, enabling deeper exploration of the practice and all the positive effects that Yoga brings.
I hope that you will leave my classes feeling not only more flexible, stronger and invigorated, but also calmed, balanced and restored.
Helena means in ancient Greek ‘Bringer of Light’.
She grew up in Clifton, Bristol, spent time in Ecuador, Japan and Belgium, though her main home is Cheltenham. Whilst living in Japan as a young woman she was influenced by their Buddhist and Shinto traditions.
Back in England Helena trained as a Personal Trainer and Aerobics Instructor. This lead to her interest about how the mind effects the body and vice versa, and I became a Neuro Linguistic Programming Therapist. Following this Helena’s wellbeing and happiness profoundly shifted when then studied Nutritional Healing.
Her regular Yoga practise progressed to her training in India as a teacher. She is very grateful to her Yoga teachers in India for inspiring her to share her light, be authentic and live her life with purpose and service.
Helena loves teaching Yoga and Meditation. For her Yoga is a lifestyle, She does not just teach a set of stretches, She shares ways of releasing tension, connecting to yourself, becoming more spiritual, mindful, confident, kind and compassionate.
