Yoga is an ancient form of exercise that focuses on strength, flexibility and breathing to boost physical and mental wellbeing. The main components of yoga are postures (a series of movements designed to increase strength and flexibility) and breathing. Nowadays we know yoga does more than that:
We already know it improves flexibility & builds muscle strength which are pretty important in the world of a healthy functioning human body. Yoga has however also been shown to perfect posture, prevent cartilage and joint breakdown, protect your spine, better your bones, increase blood flow, drain your lymph nodes, boost immunity, decrease blood pressure, regulate your adrenal glands, lower blood sugar levels, help you focus, relax your system, improve your balance, maintain your nervous system, release tension, aid sleep, prevent IBS and digestive problems, give inner strength and peace of mind and encourage self care.
JJK is a well established personal training centre that has been running yoga classes for 2 years. The increase in demand for yoga and the increase in awareness of the benefits of yoga have lead to a brand new yoga studio being born.
There are so many different styles of yoga that can cater for and benefit everyone and it is our belief that yoga is an essential practice for a sound body and mind!
We noticed there is nothing quite like it in the area and it is very much needed. Our vision is to create a community enabling people to come together.

OUR YOGA TEACHERS
Steve’s style is a blend of thoughtful and playful. He believes that every pose offers a chance to find something new, so his teaching focuses on details and refinements which help students make the most of everything. He also believes that play is a great teacher, so he encourages students to challenge themselves in a fun, but safe, way. As a teacher with years of experience, Steve’s classes incorporate elements from many styles of Yoga, so he can tailor classes to suit every level of student – and throw in the occasional surprise
For Kas, Yoga is about becoming connected and aware of your true self. Kas sees yoga as building a relationship with your mind and body and allowing them both to communicate with each other with awareness and respect.
Fitness has always been a part of Katey’s life – for years Katey was purely a regular gym, bootcamp and spin attendee. Katey used to believe that yoga wasn’t for her because she thought it would be ‘too slow’ and ‘not her style’…
When training for the London Marathon, Katey was advised to practice some yoga to help her overworked muscles. She reluctantly agreed and was pleasantly surprised, willingly going back every week. From there, Katey began taking classes at a hot yoga studio which is where she really fell in love. Move over treadmill! Katey quickly understood the power of yoga and remaining on one mat for just one hour.
Katey has completed the Yoga Alliance accredited 500 Hour Teacher Training Diploma and has been teaching ever since – completely changing her career.
Katey’s goal for every class she teaches is to help people feel more open, stronger and lighter on their feet. But most importantly, for them to leave with a smile on their face and wanting more.

Her style is supportive and inclusive, allowing students to explore their own unique experience of being in the body.
