I have practiced yoga for most of my life and qualified as a teacher with FRYOG in 1984. My main interest is in health and healing through working with the elements and this has led me to study with leading Viniyoga and Ayurvedic practicioners. I now have a practice near Totnes in Devon, offering one-to-one yoga for therapy or personeal development.

Hi, my name is Kate. I am lucky enough to teach yoga in a beautiful studio at the bottom of my garden in Chichester. Having the studio built was like a dream coming true: I had been doodling with designs for about six years before things came together enough for me to be able to build it. Now I give classes for up to eight students several times a week and I also give one-on-one lessons. I have taught many people with disabilities over the years, as well older people, pregnant women, teenagers and young children. I have learned to be adaptive! I continue to be amazed: whatever is going on for the individual, through yoga there is healing on all levels. Becoming a Teacher Training Tutor two years ago forced me to revisit just about every aspect of my own teaching – tough, yet very healthy!

My background of yoga is of mixed lineage,weaving together different styles of yoga from different traditions creating a well balanced and heart centred approach to my classes. I am an experienced teacher leading classes in both Berkshire and Worcestershire. I also teach the FRYOG International teacher training diploma and organise workshops in the UK and yoga retreats in India.
I teach what I practice and I practice what I teach but my deepest belief is that if you allow yoga to unfold your Body , Mind and Spirit, the practice will change the way you see the amazing world in which we live.
Aimee is an experienced Hatha Yoga Teacher and has been teaching general public yoga classes for 10 years. She also teaches classes in the corporate environment and for teachers in schools as well as providing personalized one to one sessions for Breathe and Triyoga.
Additionally she is a member of the Executive Board for FRYOG and holds the position of Training and Standards Officer.
Aimee is also a qualified Osteopath; graduating from the British School of Osteopathy with a Masters Degree in Osteopathy. She is a registered member of the General Osteopathic Council and the British Osteopathic Association and her knowledge of yoga also enriches her osteopathic treatment due to her understanding of mindfulness and exercise prescription which are as essential part of patient management.
Aimee’s unique combination of training in both osteopathy and yoga position her to add a therapeutic element to her yoga classes and specializing in adaptation of yoga for people with injuries, stress and chronic illness. With a very thorough knowledge of anatomy, physiology and the mechanism of injury and health of the human body, she uses this in depth knowledge to provide CPD training for yoga teachers.
I have been practising Yoga since I was a teenager and qualified with FRYOG in 1979. My teaching expresses my firm belief that Yoga is beneficial for all and should be accessible to everyone. Because of my long experience and involvement with Yoga my style is eclectic but with roots firmly in the traditional. Among my specialisms are Tantra and Ayurvedic Yoga. I am also a complimentary therapist and run my practice ‘Serenity Yoga and Therapies’ in Matlock Derbyshire offering a range of therapies, and Yoga classes. The next Diploma Course will start in September 2015.
Based in Southsea, Portsmouth on the South Coast of the UK, Lucy & Donna have taught extensively in their local area, collaborating often on workshops and fundraising yoga events. Having been practical and theory assessors for FRYOG for several years, Lucy & Donna decided to launch their own Foundation Course, in line with the recently revamped syllabus, in 2014. They are delighted to be offering further Foundation Courses, with the next one starting in Autumn 2015 in Brighton. Their first 200 hour TTC will begin in September 2015 in Southsea.
Lucy has been teaching for over 9 years, and is a teacher of Perinatal Yoga (for pregnancy, birth & beyond) with Birthlight and a Yoga Therapist (she is currently completing her studies in this specialised training with the Devon School of Yoga). Lucy is also the present Chairperson for Friends of Yoga.
Donna has been teaching in & around Southsea since gaining her FRYOG diploma in 2004.?
Her background in social care, encompassing a wide range of client groups, has informed the development of Donna’s teaching for clients experiencing problems with drugs & alcohol and with their mental health.
Donna & Lucy welcome students from all yoga backgrounds, and offer a deeply experiential learning environment to allow you to really feel and embody the practical applications of yoga philosophy, theoretical knowledge and yoga practices on the syllabus, whether to deepen your own practice of yoga or to enable you to learn to teach the yoga you love.
Lucy & Donna invite you to embark on a journey of yoga education that will offer real opportunities for personal growth & transformation.
I have been practising yoga for over 20 years and been a FRYOG teacher since 2002 and completed my Satyananda teacher training in 2011. I believe that the tools of yoga should be available to everyone and aim to teach in such a way that each individual can access the tools that are relevant, helpful and accessible to them at each stage of their life.
I currently run weekly classes on the Isle of Wight together with one2one sessions for individuals. I also work with people with a wider variety of ongoing health problems and special needs. In addition, I hold regular workshops and weekend retreats, and I also offer the FRYOG Foundation and teacher training 200 and 500 hour courses.
I have been practising yoga for over twenty years and first trained to teach in 1996 at the Sivananda Ashram in Southern India. I qualified as a FRYOG teacher in 2003 and as a yoga therapist with Real Yoga in 2014. I am based at Avani School of Yoga in Northumberland, where I work as a yoga therapist and teach hatha yoga to groups, couples and individuals.
