Our Wee Teachers

Our studios play host to a range of wellbeing related classes, events and workshops – all taught by a range of talented wellbeing practitioners. We are very proud and thankful for all these wee faces below.

Anne Marie: Hatha yoga (she/her)

AM turned to yoga in 2010. Her job was affecting her in many ways and she felt stressed every day. Yoga has helped AM take a step back and realise what is important in her life. She wanted to share these benefits with others and so travelled to Indonesia to complete her YTS teacher training in Hatha yoga at Santosha School in Nusa Lembongan.

AM’s classes are relaxed and fun, not at all too serious and a place where it’s fine to make mistake.

Carol: Nia teacher (she/her)

Carol was introduced to Nia by a fabulous teacher in Egypt in 2008, and it was love at first dance. Within months of returning to the UK in 2011, she sought out a Nia teacher training course and soon after embarked on the lifelong training that Nia offers. During the day, Carol works within the NHS as a paediatric physiotherapist and often draws her medical knowledge to inform her Nia practice and the pearls of wisdom of Nia within her PT practice.

Carol can often be found dancing in her kitchen, ravenously consuming music of all genres.

Laura Manderson: Seasonal Vinyasa Teacher (she/her)

Laura became drawn to yoga during her time at university as a way to balance the cerebral nature of her studies with a calming practice. She is currently undertaking a PhD in psychology focusing on cognitive ageing, and maintains a regular yoga practice. Laura’s classes incorporate the energy of the current season with a focus on alignment and connection between the mind, breath and body.

From a research perspective, Laura is interested in how yoga and other lifestyle factors contribute to longevity.

Maggie Creed: Kundalini Yoga (she/her)

Maggie Creed (aka Siri Akal) is a yogi, healer, recording artist and engineer. Maggie is a Level 2 certified Kundalini Yoga teacher (500 hr), and a Sat Nam Rasayan healer. She also has a PhD in Environmental Fluid Mechanics and works as a lecturer at the University of Glasgow.

Whether you are a complete beginner or an advanced practitioner of yoga, you will be able to enjoy Maggie’s physically challenging yet deeply healing and uplifting yoga classes, usually accompanied by live music with guitar or shruti box, and vocals.

Natasha Sinclair: Health Professional and Transformational Coach (she/her)

Natasha has over 10 years experience as a health professional and qualified as a transformational coach in 2019. She currently works as a freelance speech and language therapist and Makaton signing tutor, providing holistic treatment programs to families and training in education settings. She also works closely with clients experiencing chronic pain or health conditions who are seeking more joy in their lives and a powerful mindset shift around their body experience.

You’ll find Natasha hosting our Free Wee Cuppas community meetup as well as her own Empower Hour class.
