Marianne Williams

After 15 years in the fitness industry, Marianne began to study Ashtanga yoga before qualifying to teach, having gained her RYS at "It's Yoga" in San Francisco under the tutelage of Larry Schultz in 2005. Ever since then, Marianne has been a big believer in practicing under as many esteemed teachers as possible in order the gain the most well rounded knowledge of yoga. Countless retreats and workshops have not only served to deepen her practice as a student, but also her knowledge as a yoga teacher.

 

In 2016, Marianne gained the prestigious Senior Yoga Teacher qualification having clocked up over 4000 hours teaching. With Marianne you can expect a physically strong, direct class with a hands on approach to alignment and posture correction. Prepare to challenge yourself and test your practice to the sounds of everything from Cafe del Mar to funky house, a nod to her misspent youth.

Charlotte Peers

I grew up in Australia.  I trained as an Early Childhood teacher in Sydney and then did a further teaching qualification once I arrived in the UK.  I love to see children grow and develop their thirst for life and learning, and to be a part of nurturing this.

I was introduced to yoga in the early part of 2011 by my husband, who was keen to try a different form of exercise.  I very quickly began to see and feel the benefits of applying myself to a new physical discipline and really enjoyed the challenge of combining body, mind and breath in movement.

My journey into yoga brought me to the place where I wanted to see others develop their strengths, physically and personally, and to be a part of their yoga journey, because of this I undertook the FHY Teacher Training diploma.

I teach both Hatha and Flow classes at HPO Yoga and Pilates studio, a beautifully calming brand- new space in Marlborough Park.

I am also very blessed to be able to share the gift of yoga with children and teens at various local schools.

Come, breathe, play!
