“Boxing is a sport that is raw yet refined; explosive yet technical; competitive yet essentially co-operative and grounding.”

Michele Heuff

Michele’s yoga practice began as a way to help increase flexibility in her spine. Five years ago she knew yoga would always be part of her life when she retured from a retreat feeling revitalized and reconnected to her true self.

Niki Ainslie

Yoga Teacher

Niki walked into her first yoga class some 20 years ago, and was immediately enticed. Over 700 hours of teacher training later and Niki feels like she’s got more to learn than ever!
Niki’s classes endeavour to be both dynamic and grounding. She hopes to encourage breath whenever possible and loves the quote by Donna Farhi, “Breathing freely is a courageous act.” Niki aspires to grow braver still and to inspire the same courage in others.
