Carla is trained in Barre, Pilates & Yoga & is GP referral qualified. Carla has worked along side UK athletes, chriptarctors & worked with the local councils, run community programs and continues to develop her love for Pilates & Yoga by attending regular training and seminars.

 

Carla has many years of experience working with clients from all backgrounds and has a deep understanding of injury rehab. Carla's passion is to support as many clients as she can through her classes to manage injuries, injury prevention and anxieties, providing individuals with a balanced lifestyle. 

Yoga has been a part of my life for over a decade now and as with many people, I started to practice yoga when I was at a crossroads in my life. By practicing yoga it gave me a safe space in which I could leave any stresses at the door. By focusing on my mind and body, it allowed me to relax whilst also contributing to maintaining a healthy lifestyle and keeping fit.

I was privileged to immerse myself in my training on the beautiful tropical island of Koh Phangnan in Thailand, famed for its yoga and healing centres. It gave me a life experience like no other. I stayed on the island for sometime and enjoyed teaching there looking out over the ocean or across the mountains from the yoga shala. Bringing this experience home with me I now teach Vinyasa flow, Power Flow, Hatha and Yin.

My style can vary depending on the energy of the class, I like to see how people are feeling and create a sanctuary where you will have the best practice on your mat. I am also a Reiki Practitioner and believe that Prana (energy) needs to flow deeply and freely through our bodies, removing any blocks so that we can relieve stress, increase immunity and enhance our general well being. With that in mind I like to create a practice which allows any blocks to open gently and bring you an overall sense of full body, mind and soul recharge after every class.

See you on the mat!
