Anna Ferla

BWY Yoga Instructor | Antenatal and Postnatal Instructor

Anna qualified as a Hatha yoga teacher with the British Wheel of Yoga and has trained with Yoga London to teach Antenatal and Postnatal classes.

Anna’s teaching style is inspired by her old yoga teacher Edith Simmons, who taught her to observe, listen and so be aware of anything that happens in the body, breath and mind and by hiking and walking in the Italian Alps , where every little step has to be grounded and is equally important in reaching your destination.


Claire Morris

CYQ Yoga Instructor

Claire has been practicing Yoga for over 14 years and has been a CYQ accredited Level 3 Yoga Teacher for 5 years. Her teaching is grounded in the Hatha style but is influenced by dynamic flow. She aims to teach techniques that improve our stamina, focus and flexibility. Her classes build strength in the core as well as helping to improve posture and breathing to leave the body and mind relaxed.  


Emma-Jane Bunn

RYT Hatha Yoga Instructor

Emma credits yoga with positively changing the relationship she has with her body and enabling her to move through her life with a clearer mind. With a keen interest in Mindfulness, Emma applies mindfulness-based techniques to her teaching to encourage students to practice with self-enquiry, curiosity and compassion for their bodies.  Emma completed her Hatha Yoga 200hr qualification in Mysore, India with Noah McKenna.


Fern Ross

RYT Vinyasa Flow Instructor | Hatha Yoga Instructor

Fern first discovered yoga in 2007, when she moved to London, and was immediately hooked. Using it as a way to stretch out her muscles and counteract miles of daily cycling, she slowly began to – as many of those who initially come to yoga for the physical benefits do – find a deeper appreciation of the practice beyond the asanas, leaving each class with a calmer mind and a stronger sense of self. A 200 RYT, Fern practises Vinyasa Flow and Hatha (but loves exploring all styles, including Yin, Restorative, Ashtanga and Rocket). Her style is dynamic yet mindful, with a focus on alignment and adapting each posture to the individual, encouraging a meditative practice that leaves you feeling calm and balanced. 


Hayley Cotter

RYT Vinyasa Flow Yoga Instructor

Hayley, founder of Fearless Fox Yoga, has been in love with yoga for as long as she can remember and adores teaching. A 200 RYT, Hayley trained in India in Ashtanga and Vinyasa Flow and has traveled the world with her mat practicing many styles of yoga. Inspiration from wise teachers and fellow yogis influenced her style, combining a spirit of playfulness and creative sequences and themes in her classes. Energising flows create heat and detoxify the body, making it light and strong. The slower-paced static movements focus the mind on the breath to move deeper into your own individual practice and increase flexibility. Hayley thoughtfully creates balance between the body and mind bringing you into a calm state of stillness. You will leave her classes feeling refreshed and totally relaxed. 


Jade McDonald

CYQ Yoga Instructor

Jade began her journey as a yoga instructor over seven years ago alongside her role as a trained Cabin Crew Member. As a CYQ accredited Level 3 yoga teacher Jade has travelled the world developing her skills as an instructor, combining spirituality and asana strength to her teaching to help calm minds and strengthen bodies.

In her power condition class, Jade starts her classes with a relaxation sequence keeping the mind still, taking away the constant thoughts in our busy day to day lives. Gradually the session goes into asana which befits and immobilises each joint of the body. This is steady and safe preparation to increase strength and focus. Finally the session ends with a relaxation sequence which gives the muscles time to repair and restore.


Korina Tsipoura

RYT 200 Yoga Instructor | Yoga for Children (YA certified)

Korina (Amorphous Movement and Amorphous Kids) is an experienced dance teacher. She has always practised yoga as part of her dance training, but it was only after the birth of her second child that she discovered just how powerful Yoga is as a means of reconditioning and maintaining long term fitness. It was very soon after this that she decided to train as a Yoga teacher with Bridget Woods-Kramer gaining a 200-hours certificate in Hatha Yoga. She has also qualified as a Yoga teacher for children, studying with Susannah Hoffman.

Korina’s main goals for teaching children are to help them set good foundations for their learning and personal development by creating memories that instil a bug for self-care, love for movement and exercise and to provide a platform for a balanced connection between body and mind.


Lynne Fugard

RYS Yoga Instructor

Lynne accidentally stumbled into a yoga class at her gym a few years ago, and immediately became an addict, training in India, France and London. She enjoys practicing Vinyasa, Jivamukti, Rocket and Yin yoga, and brings aspects of all of these styles to her teaching. Always playful and light-hearted, her classes are underpinned by her studies in philosophy and music, with special attention paid to breath, creative and intelligent sequencing, and the interplay between invigorating challenge and soft release.

Pip Roberts

BWY Hatha Yoga Instructor

Training with the British Wheel of Yoga Diploma course and also a Strala yoga guide, Pip's classes are a Hatha Vinyasa style, moving with the breath. The classes are movement driven, allowing each inhale to lift, expand and open, and each exhale to move further into the experience. The result is a great feeling of expansion, freedom, strength, and radiance from the inside out.  Strala is known for its laid-back, energetic and open vibe. Practice always adapts to what is required on the mat that day whether it be hamstrings that need stretching or a more esoteric approach to movement within the body, Pip can guide you.
