Safia Bowley

About Safia

I have been practising yoga for 20 years, but began sharing it with others in 2012 after taking a BSY teacher training course. Since then, I have held regular Friday morning Let-go-of-the-week Hatha sessions, incorporating breath work, energising stretches (seated and standing, with modifications where needed) and nurturing relaxation. I believe that yoga is for everyone, and love helping others investigate the effects of a gentle but regular practise, which can be truly powerful, refreshing and calming for both body and mind. Join us on Fridays at 10:00.

Tanya Davis

About Tanya

Hi my name is Tanya Davis . I have had an interest in yoga and the holistic approach to life for many years. I returned to yoga practice seriously in 2013 starting again as a beginner with classes at the Yoga Life Studio. This led me to taking up meditation which I do on a daily basis after my yoga practice. At the beginning of 2018 I found myself once again walking into the tranquil space that is the Yoga Life Studio and signing up to do the Yoga Life Teacher Training course with Wenche and Eva. What a transformational experience. I qualified in December 2018 and am excited to start my first class this January. My passion for promoting self reflection with relaxation is the fundamental principle behind my aims for my classes. Emphasis towards a nurturing and restoring environment for all.
