Ying Chan

Ying Chan

Yoga Practitioner

In 2016 I went on a yoga teacher training course to deepen my own practice, but once I finished I found I had been given a wonderful gift to share and introduce my passion with people. I love the fact that yoga is open to everyone regardless of your age, race, or gender. I am a forever student, and love learning from new workshops and courses, passing on the knowledge and insight I gain, but I always learn from my students too. I have practised all styles of yoga, and love them all for their own reasons. Personally I find that flow is better fit all round for the biggest group of people. I love that I can borrow from other styles and add bits in to my own classes. I teach a gentle flow style, with a bit of fun added. 

Natasha Goldson

Natasha Goldson

Yoga Practitioner

I found yoga at a point in my life when I was experiencing a difficult period and I was amazed how yoga helped me to transform my life, health and wellbeing. I became inspired to share this ancient practice and help others in this process too.

I am RYT500 trained in; Pranayama, Meditation, Vinyasa Flow, Hatha Yoga, Ashtanga Yoga, Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga and Yoga Therapy. I completed my 200 hours yoga teacher training in the Unified Yoga style focusing on different body types to make yoga accessible to all. I then continued my studies to complete a further 300 hours yoga teacher training in Rishikesh, India the yoga capital of the world. I use these two different teachings to bring the Indian authenticity to my yoga practices along with ensuring that my students achieve a posture in a way that is suitable for their body. Having previously been a professional dancer and then a qualified teacher of performing arts and dance for over twenty five years, I bring my experience of teaching, training and in-depth knowledge of different body types/abilities to help each student achieve the best experience out of their practice, physically, emotionally and spiritually.
