Abi Douglas

Vinyasa Flow Yoga Teacher

I found yoga around eight years ago while living abroad, as my soul was searching for answers and I was yearning for a deeper meaning to life. Since starting a regular yoga practice, my journey of self-awareness has been enriched by breathwork, mindfulness, meditation and of course yoga asana. Yoga has become both a spiritual and physical practice which I come back to everyday and whilst my practice on the mat allows me time to connect to my body, yoga is so much more to me. It’s reflection, journalling, pranayama, a way of life off the mat too which encourages me to be the best version of myself. 

I knew within me that I wanted to become a yoga teacher to help others access the benefits of yoga and find their way back to themselves. Modern day life can be so frantic and so often we can feel as if we are rushing from one thing to another without really taking it all in. Through yoga, I hope to inspire others to weave those all important moments of self-reflection and inquiry into their day to day lives, as well as honouring their bodies as they arrive on their yoga mat.

I enjoy teaching movements connected with the breath to bring us into the present moment, alongside poses to ground, energise and empower. It’s all about having a go, letting go of the end pose and accepting where you are at right now.

Eleanor Bennett


I'm Eleanor and I have been practicing acupuncture since 2013. I was lead to the clinic in my home town where I had a course of treatments to heal some long standing issues that I had been having. After feeling the benefit of the acupuncture and herbal remedies I was very intrigued and wanted to know more. So I studied as an apprentice at the CT Clinic in Northampton, where I achieved my first diploma in acupuncture in 2013. After some years of travelling and self practice I came back to the CT Clinic, which is now established as The Open International College of Complementary Therapies, where I studied for a further 2 years with them, deepening my understanding of Chinese Medicine. From there I graduated with a Diploma in Traditional Chinese Medicine in May 2018.
The sound therapy part of the treatment has come from my own love of working with sound frequencies. After experiencing  the deeply resonating effects of these sounds for myself, I decided to combine it with the acupuncture to offer greater healing potential in the treatments.

Elisha Towers

Yoga Teacher

Hello I'm Elisha -  I’ve practiced yoga for 7 years and I am still practicing and learning each day. Although now, I am the one who can give the classes, I still find this unbelievable, a dream come true! To share with others what I love. I love the difference we feel from the beginning of the class to the end, it's a beautiful transition. All things nature, healing, and anything that brings us joy and laughter is for me. Travelling around the world experiencing new cultures, opens my mind completely. Life to me is all about finding what you love and surrounding yourself with those who encourage you to fulfil your dreams and most importantly make you smile each day.

Hannah Hayhurst

Children’s Yoga Teacher specializing in Yoga for Autism

I’m Hannah I have 14 years’ experience of working with children of all ages and in many different settings.  I have a very child centred approach and a calm but playful disposition.

My interest in mental health and what we can do to maintain a healthy mind set lead me to yoga, which I am fully committed to as a daily practice.  Yoga is my go-to for tending to my needs, the bottom-up approach allows me to regulate my nervous system; which it turn allows for shifts in mood, boosts my energy and gives me a healthier perspective so I can face life’s challenges.  

I wanted to share my passion for yoga, creativity and neurodiversity with children so decided to set up Bee Free Kids Yoga.  I run classes in schools for EYFS and key stage one, as well as running classes in my community.  I also teach one to one sessions for children with ASD.

My aim is to give children a self-regulation tool kit that they can use in their everyday lives not just on their yoga mats.

Marie Wheelwright

Facial Yoga teacher. Zone Face Lift therapist. Massage Therapist. Reiki master. Facial Reflexology Therapist .

I am a holistic therapist with 25 years’ experience. My interest in healing and wellbeing grew during my psychology degree. At that time, the mind/ body connection just wasn’t there, so I began exploring holistic therapies, therapeutic touch and energy healing, studying aromatherapy, advanced massage, reflexology and reiki alongside a counselling qualification. 
I’ve been on a wellness path ever since, an eternal student, always learning new techniques and healing modalities drawn from Eastern medicine, Western energy psychology and functional medicine, shamanism and ancestral health.  
I take an eclectic approach to treatment, drawing on my accumulated knowledge to create bespoke treatment plans. It is my life purpose and greatest joy to support clients both individually and in workshops, on their healing journey, working together to reach ever deeper levels of understanding, awareness and bliss.

Kinesiology and Sensitivity Testing

I offer a nurturing environment in which to explore any issues that are going on for you and explore ways of bringing out balance and equilibrium. I love kinesiology because it is a very co-creative way of working -  its not the therapist telling you what you need it really is your story - it's like opening up your very own encyclopedia and when information comes up, it really does mirror what's going on for you. I love that you can work with your goals and balance your future plans, work in a very practical way with the physical body but also around your creative and spiritual aspects. 

 I was drawn into healing work very naturally many years ago which resulted in me working with healing energies.  I completed a two year Crystal healing course with the International Association of Crystal Healing Therapists and become a Reiki master. Later on I attended a two year nutritional course with the Nutritional healing foundation and a 5 element nutrition course with the Natural Food school based in Devon.

My own personal journey for health & balance involved me going for Creative Kinesiology treatments which I found so

beneficial and absolutely fascinating that I decided to train as one.  I am a registered practitioner on the Creative Kinesiology website and a member of the BCMA 

I’ve attended an energy mismatch workshop which is all to do with testing for food sensitivities and allergies and

restoring balance where appropriate. I am also a Weleda health focus advisor.
