Polly came into yoga 13 years ago to support endurance training for rock climbing and mountaineering. A daily Ashtanga and Kundalini yoga practice has provided me with a deep self awareness and conditioning. I did my first yoga training in Ashtanga Vinyasa in the Austrian alps with yoga alliance and I am currently doing a second part kundalini yoga teacher training here in Yorkshire. Polly studies movement, anatomy and neuroscience as a hobby and finds new, cool stuff to share in her teachings every day.

JACK HARNBY Ashtanga Style Yoga
I grew up with a yoga teacher Dad.
Lots of hatha and meditation – all very slow paced and calming.
This certainly helped me through uni! But as my life got more hectic and I started travelling, my yoga practice stepped up and became much more dynamic.
A form of exercise now as well as a practice for the mind. I didn’t know what vinyasa was at that point, but looking back this was the style I was enjoying.
A desire for more strength led me to ashtanga, which quickly became my passion!
This love for ashtanga is the reason I started teaching. I’ve spent the last year developing my yoga practice in Costa Rica and spain. Trying out a more yogic lifestyle (a work in progress!) and delving into the history of yoga and a more traditional Mysore practice.
Jack has been a personal trainer for over ten years and has met amazing people whilst travelling around the world. When he discovered yoga he immediately fell in love with the movement patterns which has taken his teaching and his practice to another level. Jack is looking forward to sharing his yoga experience with you and help you develop as a yogi.

CARRIE BIRKINSHAW Pilates
I am a fully qualified Pilates, Yoga and Meditation teacher, and I have been running my own classes in and around Leeds for approximately 8 years and absolutely love what I do. Being a single mum of 2 kids I completely understand the stresses that everyday life can bring, and this is why I like to bring an element of relaxation and mindfulness into all my classes. A true believer in keeping a balance of healthy body and mind.
My Pilates classes are challenging, but calming and mindful at the same time, a perfect balance. If you’re up for getting your sweat on, I like to incorporate an element of cardio into each session, so that you feel like you've had a good workout, the moves will spike your heart rate to improve heart health, boost endurance and leave you smiling. Then I finish the session with a lovely, short, guided relaxation to help relax the body and quiet the chatter in the mind.
