introducing our wonderful teachers
"I am a 200 hr certified yoga teacher, who runs regular classes, from her base, in Elie, and in St. Andrews. I have traveled widely and have practiced yoga in Sydney, Cape Town, Spain and India. My attitude to yoga is that it is for everyone. It is not about being good, or bad, it is about focusing on the breath. This focus can reduce anxiety, bring mental clarity, bring inner calm and peace and make one more able to express oneself and well as open-up creativity and improve physical well-being."

Beginners, Power and Vinyasa
"Hi! I am Gowri. I am a second year, studying Economics and Management. I have been practicing Yoga for the last 4 years and completed my Teacher's Training Course in the summer of 2019 from Sivananda Meenakshi Ashram in Madurai, India. I took classes for YogiSoc last year and thoroughly enjoyed it! Yoga is a way of life and I hope to give back to the student community by helping each student feel stronger, energised, confident, and relaxed after each session."
"Hi I'm Mhairi. Unconventionally I first came to yoga through teaching instead of my own practice. I worked as a fitness instructor in Greece at the start of 2019 and had to teach it as one of my classes. It was a steep learning curve but led to me developing a passion for the practice itself and the teaching of it. I then taught yoga when I worked in Tobago through the winter before completing my YTT in Bali February 2020. Since then I have taught livestream classes for an online platform and continued my own practice."
