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.
