Live. Breathe. Fly.
All our teachers have an inclusive and friendly approach in their teaching style and a commitment to curate and teach creative and contemporary classes, every single time you take a step on to your mat.

Lana (50% Brit / 50% Kiwi) comes from an academic and physical sporting background. Completing a bachelor in Sport & Exercise, Diploma in Applied Fitness, Post Graduate Study in Strength & Conditioning and Body Work allowed Lana to work as a Personal Trainer, Coach and within the sport sector of New Zealand. Whilst pursuing her own sports goals and competing for New Zealand in cycling and long distance triathlon, she came to yoga looking for healing and restoration, after pushing her body too hard, burning out and having serious injuries, including spinal surgery. She has experience in Vinyasa, Yin, Yoga Nidra and is a qualified Forrest Yoga Level 1 Teacher.
Lana approaches yoga from a healing perspective, seeing the magic of holding an open, non-judgmental and safe space for students to move within and allow a well structured practice to connect to the physical body, mind, emotional and spiritual self. She believes that Yoga has the power to change lives and aims to offer a practice that anyone can be a part of, through intention, planning and community - yoga can offer so much both on and off the mat.
CK comes from an incredibly varied dance background, graduating in 2017 with a (BA)Hons in Contemporary Dance. Chlöe’s grounding in contemporary dance and vinyasa Yoga creates a fiery blend of the two disciplines. She brings to bear pranayama, meditation and movement techniques learned from The Sacred Fig, during her Yoga training in Bali, which unite to unearth a strong and powerful practice.
Following a severe spinal injury during Chloë’s dance training, she brings a restorative energy to her training style, which actively combats physical and mental strains of the modern world. She loves to bring an element of play into Yoga; not taking yourself too seriously is key in her class!
CK will be teaching a Vinyasa Flow class every Thursday 6.30-7.30pm

Shanti spent over a decade as a city lawyer with a deep curiosity and commitment to training in energy healing modalities and yoga in her free time. She now runs a healing and coaching practice as a ThetaHealer and ThetaHealing Instructor, Breathwork Healer, Reiki Practitioner, Qi Gong and Yoga Teacher. She weaves all of these different practices and teachings into her work.
For Shanti, yoga is a doorway to awakening ourselves to who we truly are, a doorway to finding inner stillness - returning to ourselves over and over again. In that returning we find where home is, and we cultivate and allow the space we need, both physically and mentally, to consciously create our lives.
