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.
Rosie has been practicing yoga since her teens, when she used it as a tool for healing, a method of escape and relaxation. She believes that yoga should make you feel good and we do that by connecting to who we really are during class.
Following completing her 200hr teacher training with Ian Davis here in Cheltenham in 2018, in 2019 she will be further training in Ashtanga with Tina James and will also be completing Thai Yoga Massage training. She also continues to deepen her knowledge and experience by attending workshops and reading – Rosie reads a lot and loves books!
Since completing her training Rosie has been teaching Beginners, Hatha and Ashtanga. Rosie lives quite rurally in a wild home exposed to the elements. As such, when you come to a class, expect it to be peppered with nature themes and lessons that Rosie learns day to day from mama Gaia.
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.
Sæunn is a Product Design Engineer turned Yoga Teacher from Iceland. She has been fascinated by movement from an early age having spent most of her younger years focused on dancing. She veered slightly off that movement based path when she pursued her university degree but soon found her way back when she discovered the magic of yoga.
Having some remnants of flexibility from her dancing days Sæunn found it perhaps a bit too easy to get into some of the more advanced yoga postures and soon realised the importance of stability along with flexibility. Since then she has been passionate about infusing her practice and her classes with lots of strengthening moves. Gracefully floating between stretch and strength in a playful almost dance-like practice before collapsing into a blissful Savasana.

Katie began practising yoga in her teens, initially as a form of exercise. After studying the practice and philosophy, she became interested in how the many benefits of yoga follow you off the mat and weave themselves into your everyday life.
After completing her 200 hour Hatha training last year with the renowned YogaLife studios in Cheshire, Katie moved to Cheltenham with her husband and one-year-old daughter.
Katie’s intention is to create a warm and welcoming space where people can come to switch off from their busy lives and relax. You will leave feeling calmer, less stressed and more focused, and gain the tools to recreate this calm at any point in your day.
