Featuring Guest Teacher: Bella (Monday's welcome class)
Bella completed her 200hr YTT at Byron Yoga Centre in 2016 after practicing on and off for 15(ish) years. She wholeheartedly believes yoga is for everyone and, like wine, if you haven’t found one you like, keep looking!
She loves a good sweaty practice, full of strong foundation poses with a dose of something new & challenging and believes that a good session on the mat is unparalleled. For her, yoga offers a moving meditation - something to turn the brain off and let the body and breath do the work – which is the perfect antidote to her day job, editing reality television.
Her teaching style is relaxed and informal, with an emphasis on finding what works for the individual, and will usually contain at least one mispronunciation of a sankrit word.
