She has over 30 years of yoga practice with many different teachers from a variety of traditions, which has resulted in having an eclectic style of teaching.

Encouraged by her mother who thought she needed to learn to relax, Elisa first dipped into yoga over 12 years ago. Elisa's dynamic Vinyasa classes are designed to stimulate self-inquiry and to challenge students’ perceptions of their capabilities. The classes are flowing, with an emphasis on technical precision and asana analysis. Balanced with this she creates plenty of space to explore pranayama and meditation. Re-learning to relax is an integral part of overall health, so Elisa always tries to incorporate some restorative yoga. Elisa will be teaching on December 28, 2016-January 4, 2017.
Liz has been teaching yoga since the 1990s, training first with the British Wheel of Yoga. Absorbed in the health and balance of the body and mind through alignment, gesture, breathing, sequencing, and relaxation, her inspiration comes from the series of Ashtanga Vinyasa tradition and other Hatha yoga practices, including yoga Nidra. Liz adapts yoga postures for each individual in order to chisel into their form and help to sculpt and free each unique body.
Diana is a fun, enthusiastic teacher with more than 30 years of teaching experience in yoga, Pilates, and dance. She first studied Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga with John Scott.

Diana went on to qualify as an Iyengar yoga teacher in London after studying extensively with renowned senior Iyengar teacher, Maxine Tobias. Diana now teaches a more rhythmic style of Hatha yoga and is an experienced physical therapist and hypnotherapist.

Passionate about the physical, spiritual, and emotional benefits of yoga, her classes encourage being open to whatever is in your heart and mind when you arrive at the mat.
Joanna's love of dynamic, flowing sequences led her to pursue the Ashtanga yoga teacher training, which she completed in 2004 with Brian Cooper and Nawajyoti at Union Yoga in Edinburgh and Shanti Griha in Scoraig, Scotland.

She holds a 300-hour certification in Prana Flow Energetic Vinyasa yoga with Shiva Rea and has also completed the intensive Yogabeats teacher training with David Sye.

Lovely holiday at Paradis Plage. Thanks for organising it all for us. The boys loved it and did lots of surfing, golf, and I even persuaded Adam into the yoga studio!
