Irini discovered yoga in Sydney in 1997 but it wasn’t until 2006 in London where her practice deepened and further still while living in New York City. Like most people, Irini went through a life changing experience and yoga through this difficult period offered her the freedom of expression she was seeking – not vocally, but in movement and breath. Taking inspiration from some incredible teachers worldwide, it became the therapy she required mentally and physically, leading her on a path of life exploration and self-care. This incredible journey moved her in such a way that Irini decided to do a yoga teacher training course to be able to give back to others the benefit that she knows can be experienced through movement and breath.
Irini’s classes will take you to a place of freedom – within yourself, mentally and physically – without any judgment; a class of true self gratitude. Her classes can be challenging on many levels: stretching, strengthening, de-stressing and uplifting.
Abby began her Pilates ‘journey’ while training in Ballet as a young dancer. This training in basic Pilates helped support her dance training for the rest of her career – Abby has performed around the world with artists such as Take That, Robbie Williams and Kylie Minogue.
During her career she decided to use her love for Pilates and complete her Level 3 mat Pilates qualification – along with training in Pre & Post Natal pilates. She felt this went hand in hand with her dance career, and after having a baby in 2018 Abby decided to focus more on her Pilates clients and is excited to share her passion for Pilates, health and wellbeing.
In Abby’s classes expect to be challenged not only physically but mentally too – continually switching up exercises and focusing on different elements each week she hopes to provide a well rounded form of exercise, leaving clients not only feeling they have “worked’ but also taking away something new from each session.

Claudia has been practising yoga since 2005 and teaching vinyasa flow since 2016. She finds the meditative practise of linking movement and breath to be the perfect time-out from the busyness of modern London life, helping her and her students to feel more present, grounded and focused. She loved practising pre-natal yoga throughout her pregnancy with a community of women going through a transformative stage of their lives and always came away feeling a sense of empowerment and respect for what the female body is capable of. This lead her to complete her pre-natal yoga training with Nadia Narain in 2020.
