After graduating, her love for dance, Science and athletic movement, lead to her pathway of discovering yoga and the benefits of how this could help both physically and mentally whilst competing .

Both Yoga and dance allow us to find the freedom and inner awareness to connect both the mind and body.

Lucy and Robyn are joined by:
Marina began practicing yoga at the age of 16. She picked up a Yoga DVD in the shop and discovered a sense of peace and stillness that she didn't realise was what her soul was yearning for. Her mat became her sanctuary and still is. Originally from Los Angeles, CA, Marina qualified as a Vinyasa Flow Yoga teacher 3 years ago and her Kids & Family yoga teacher training with Rainbow Kids Yoga in Paris, France. More recently, Marina completed a further Anatomy for Yoga Teachers training. Working with children has always been a part of her life, after she trained as a Jr. Behaviour Analyst, specialising with children on the Autism spectrum, she is passionate about teaching and practising yoga and meditation, especially to young people.

When Sarah is not busy being a mum of three she divides her time between her roles as a family support worker and primary school teacher. However, she still manages to make time to share her passion for yoga and mindfulness with the next generation of yogi's!
Sarah discovered the powerful effect that yoga and mindfulness practice supported when she was teaching young children. She was amazed at how regular practice supported the healthy development of confidence, self-esteem and resilience in the children in her class and she now uses yoga and mindfulness as a tool for all her work with children.
Sarah manages to weave a passion for fantasy and story-telling into her sessions with children. The children play a central role in developing the story and the poses practised so no two sessions are ever the same.
Sarah teaches Children’s chill out Friday Yoga and Mindfulness (6-11 years) 4-5pm on Friday afternoons
