I first came to yoga after a period of stress and anxiety. I loved the way yoga forced me to be present in the moment and the mindful way I had to move through the practice - uniting body, mind and breath. This left me feeling calm, strong and confident. Having tried many different yoga styles, I am now at a place in my personal practice where I love balancing dynamic styles, such as Rocket, with gentler, restorative styles. I first trained as a yoga teacher for children and teens and loved guiding young people through this amazing practice in fun and creative ways. I then felt I wanted to share this with adults; helping them to become more flexible, strong and peaceful. I also wanted to help people develop more love and respect for themselves and others and knew that this could be achieved through the practice of yoga.
For me, yoga is a lifestyle and there is always more to learn, poses to practice and more steadying and peace of mind to attain. That is what I love so much about this very special practice. I look forward to sharing this with you in class. I teach fun, yet calming, vinyasa classes which incorporate breath work and relaxation. I like to bring the playful side of yoga alive and my classes help to develop flexibility, strength, coordination and promote feelings of peace and well being. All abilities welcome.
I began practising yoga in my first pregnancy 22 years ago and fell in love with the practise I have continued ever since.
Yoga is for everyone of all ages and levels. I have worked with many different teachers and styles of yoga, although I tend to work solely with my teacher Rod Stryker from the Tantra lineage.
My classes are constructed on the physical aspect of yoga Asana, however they incorporate working with the breath and the subtle body or energy body. This makes the practise more potent, as the alchemy of the breath, movement and mind yields a far deeper and longest lasting residue. Change is hard for us all, yoga allows us to process and move with the challenges life presents, through our practise on the mat we are able to gain a knowledge that can help us live our life off the mat with a sense of serenity and fulfilment. '
Stay close to your practise as the universe exists within me as much as I exist in the universe'

I have worked with Liz for at least seven years and I was more than happy when they asked me to join them at the Body Studio, as I think we are a good team.
I work with a wide range of clients, who all have different goals.
Grant’s interest in health and fitness began after breaking his arm, wrist and hand badly at the age of 16. Through hard work in the gym and at home, perseverance, a lot of trial and error as well as discipline, he managed to completely rehabilitate the arm after being told by surgeons that he would only ever get 60 % use back in it at best. From there, he went on to qualify as a fitness instructor and then a Personal Trainer and began working at an exclusive health club in Northwood.
Grant has now been in and around the fitness industry for the past 8 years and has spent time working alongside some of the best in the industry as well as physiotherapists and osteopaths.
