Caroline teaches Beginners Hatha on Wednesday mornings, where you will work through a different range of postures each week to get a good grounding in the basic Hatha yoga postures. Although, watch out, Caroline does occasionally mix up her left and right!
Caroline completed her 200 hour TTC with Heather Elton in Hatha and Vinyasa Flow and has since gone on to complete a further 200 hour training with The Yoga People in Bali in Yin and Ashtanga Yoga.
Caroline is also trained in Pregnancy Yoga, so any mums-to-be wanting to come along are welcome to join Caroline’s class – once you have passed your first trimester.
Caroline creates a safe space, to allow you to relax, rejuvenate and take time out for yourself. She is a great believer in diminishing the ego especially when practicing yoga. In life we often become gripped by defending our ‘ego-identity’. This causes us to feel stressed and under attack, constantly looking over our shoulder at what others are doing. Yoga is a very personal practice and whilst striving for self improvement can be healthy it is also important to be kind to yourself and progress with your practice at steady pace that is right for you and your body.
“To me breath should always be the main focus of any yoga class so we always start with a few breath exercises to help to calm and centre the mind and allow you to arrive on the mat.”
“My classes are slow and mindful and always followed by a massage in savasana with my beautiful rose scented oil. I often sneak in a few Yin yoga postures too!”

The meaning of life according to Caroline is… “To be happy with where you are at, and enjoy each day as it comes.”
Caroline’s influential quote to live by:
“Very little is needed to make a happy life. It is all within yourself, in your way of thinking.”
