The Yoga in Cheshire Team
The teachers of adult yoga classes at the Yoga in Cheshire Studio are all qualified or accredited to diploma level with the BWY. In many cases this is just the start of a lifetime of studying, exporing and practicing different styles of yoga. They all continue to maintain a self practice and attend further retreats and workshops to deepen their knowledge and experience.
This means that whichever class you attend you can be reassured it will be taught to a hugh standard by a knowledgeable and enthusiastic teacher.

Tabitha discovered yoga in her late teens, dabbled through her twenties before developing a more disciplined practice in her thirties. Injury and health concerns have taught her that yoga provides insight into your own body's structure and physical restrictions and limitations. This developed into a kind, compassionate and non harming attitude toward her own practice. This she hopes to extend to her students both on and off the mat.
Through recent years her personal yoga practice has provided her with the space, strength and determination to open the Yoga in Cheshire Studio to share her enthusiasm and love of the yogic lifestyle and associated benefits with others. Aiming to create a fun, relaxed and inspiring environment in which students can develop and learn at their own pace, in a way that suits their individual requirements.
Practising and teaching different styles including Yin, Yoga as Therapy, Vinyasa Flow and Hot Yoga. All with focus on the breath and attention to individual anatomical structure. She continues to study with Dave Charlton & Peter Hersnack in the style of Viniyoga; Doug Keller in using Yoga as Therapy; David Sye from Yogabeats; Sarah Poweres in Yin Yoga amongst others.
She says 'Yoga is a journey, along which I can act as a guide & support, with the knowledge and experience gained from training with a number of amazing and inspiring teachers in a variety of styles. I am truly committed to ongoing study & my personal practice, which allows me to teach others about the joy of the breath & how it can open into the physical body and calm the mind. My education in nutrition and my Masters degree in Weight Management also allow me to advise and guide in helping the physical body feel lighter as well as creating space in the body through yoga.
Everybodys’ practice and the journey may be different but the results will be apparent internally & externally in both body and mind. Both in your internal relationship with your 'self' and in your relationships with others, changing how you view & move through your world. Whatever we are doing it always comes back to the breath, it is the breath that allows us to move into a place of internal stillness. That connects our physical bodies and our wayward minds and allows us to move with openness, fluidity and focus.
Exploring simple principles of gaining support from our breath, then using that support to create space. With space we have opportunity...to notice, to move and to change. Space can be the opposite of restriction. Yoga is not a restriction it is an opportunity to create space; physcially, mentally and spiritually. With space we have the opportunity to focus and find our direction'
Lynne Johnson British Wheel of Yoga, Yoga teacher
I have been teaching for six years two years as a student teacher and four years as a fully qualified teacher.
Since qualifying as a yoga teacher I lived in Abu Dhabi for two years and was lucky enough to teach yoga in a yoga studio and also I taught private one to one classes. Since returning to the UK I have been teaching in gyms in Widnes, St Helens, Liverpool and covering classes in Warrington.
I would describe my classes as movement with breath with lots of verbal instruction as well as demonstration. Also I like to think my classes leave plenty of room for students to deepen their practice at their individual pace and to take a breather if needed. So everyone is welcome.
They say that your body stays the age you start your yoga practices at so I am thirty- six and have been for the last 18 years.
