Jimmie is qualified to teach vinyasa, hatha and yin yoga. He enjoys powerful, dynamic hatha flows, and emphasises careful sequencing with breath to create mindful, centred practices.

Jimmie started to see the deeper benefits of yoga during lock down, reevaluating his life and connecting more deeply with what brings him joy. This precipitated big changes for him – he is a qualified doctor, and after a short career in the NHS retrained and taught physics for 7 years, before leaving teaching and studying yoga. “Whilst neither profession afforded me much serenity, I am very grateful for how my teaching experience, paired with medical and anatomical knowledge, inform my yoga practices.

“For me, yoga is much more than the gymnastic exercise of building strength and flexibility through asana. The meditative focus of finding alert stability and relaxed ease in your physical body – in the moment, as well as cultivating humility and acceptance for your own limitations, are powerful transferable tools which can transform the way we approach our lives.

Having studied the yoga sutras of Patanjali, I’ve found that aspiring to adhere to the guiding principles therein expands and deepens the spiritual toolkit developed by asana practice. For me it’s helped create a marked change on my ability to accept life on life’s terms, with gratitude for the lessons, as well as the joys.

I hope to bring some of the gratitude and joy I’ve found to classes”

Aloysia is qualified to Vinyasa flow Yoga, but also trained and experienced in teaching yoga for children with special needs, accessible and trauma-informed Yoga.

I truly believe that yoga is for every body, regardless of age, ability, background or circumstances, and I’m committed to making my classes accessible to all.

As a working mum of 3 boys, I understand that life can be stressful and overwhelming at times. We can’t always control what’s going on around us, but we can train our minds and bodies to respond differently to challenging situations.

As well as moving our bodies and improving our physical health, yoga can provide us with a means of releasing heavy emotions that we so often carry with us. This can bring about a renewed sense of mental clarity and help us to tune into the deeper wisdom that lies within us.

​Whatever your reasons for coming to the mat, the physical and mental benefits of a regular yoga practice can make a meaningful difference to our lives.

I’m here to serve you and support you on your yoga journey, so if you’d like to come to a class, I’d be delighted to welcome you!”

A few feedbacks from Jimmie and Aloysia students here:

“Hi Jimmy, I just wanted to say thank you for all your yoga sessions & and heart-felt blessings. Your soothing, clear voice and intricate instructions allowed me to follow without sight, forget everybody else in the room and delve into my physical self. Really liked the background stories behind the poses too. Thank you ???? Jane X”

“I did the yoga session with Jimmie on the Sunday too. It was perfect for me! I usually practice alone but it was wonderful to be led and do it with a group. It was challenging and meditative. I could tell he had really thought out the sequences and how they would flow into each other.
Thank you! Sarah”
