Nafia Harding

An all-round lover of life and all it has to offer! Nafia is a mother to 3 self-sufficient teenagers, a yoga instructor, and a plant-based chef.


After finding Yoga in 2003 where she was instantly hooked and quickly realised how great it made her feel. With experience in many styles from traditional Hatha, Ashtanga and Iyengar, Nafia soon realised her passion was for Vinyasa. The love of the energetic aspect of a vinyasa class, synchronising breath with movement, and linking individual poses to create a flowing meditation.


Yoga has become very much a way of life for Nafia and she has enjoyed discovering the wider “off the mat” aspects just as much as the physical sequences. It was through personal extensive study and experience of the life-changing, profound benefits of yoga that prompted her to train and gain a 200h Yoga Alliance certification in 2015.


Inspired by her teachers, peers, and travels Nafia aims to bring unique empowerment to each class. Through intention, meditation, pranayama and asana her goal is to have you leave each class feeling strong, mobile, refreshed, and renewed.

Vinyasa yoga teacher Jessamin Landamore

Jessamin Landamore

Jessamin is a warm and nurturing character who teaches a heart centred vinyasa flow that is both challenging and gentle at the same time. She knows how to look after our guests having run multiple retreats in the world for herself or other well-known retreat companies.

Amy Williams

Amy’s style of teaching comes from a place of nurturing. She wants you to feel free to explore the capabilities of your own body, respect your boundaries and learn how to heal and protect it. By blending strong, grounded hatha practises with the freedom found in Scaravelli and vinyasa she believes that each practise can help create the perfect balance between flexibility and stability in both body and mind.

Bess Shipside

Bess teaches a hatha flow based asana practice but comes more from “how does that feel” rather than precise alignment based practices.  Connecting the heart to the body and mind through physical movement and the breath and infusing mantra and affirmations in each class be ready to be taken on a transformative journey.

Chetana Thornton

Chetana has been on her path from young age and has been teaching for 20 years. Having lived and immersed herself in her practice she teaches with wisdom and knowledge and playfulness.
