Nikki, a British Wheel of Yoga teacher for 16 years, teaches Hatha yoga classes and workshops in east Suffolk. Her classes bring a holistic and individual experience for everyone, focusing on yoga for the health and well being of her students combining asana, pranayama and meditation, with great emphasis on the breath and both physical and mental awareness. At Henham she will explore moving into and out of a series of poses with the breath, to develop a short, meditative, flowing sequence. Nikki organises the “Suffolk Yoga Circle” and is a member of Sportsuffolk Topcoach Academy.
Daisy Turner Chakras & Yin Yoga
Daisy began practicing yoga whilst recovering from illness, finding the discipline instrumental in re-building her physical and mental strength. She is currently in her 200hr yoga teacher training with the British Wheel of Yoga. She teaches hatha flow with a focus on pranayama as well as Yin, which offers the chance to really tune into the breath and find new space in the body. For the Henham Yin class she’ll guide you through hip opening and mindful twists, finishing with a short Nidra (yogic sleep) to close the morning and relax you ready for lunch.
Train Body Brain (TBB) was launched one year ago by Wendy MacLennan who is a Level 3 Personal Trainer. Originally the method was designed to nourish the body, brain and spirit specifically of teenage girls. The class has since grown and is now taught in schools to both girls and boys, in the workplace and a regular class for Mums. The class is a powerful combination: During the 20 minute HIIT (high intensity interval training) & mat section you are showered with positive affirmations. The session concludes with a relaxing cool down and mindful meditation which focusses on letting go of worry. Expect uplifting big tunes in the HIIT section and to leave feeling more zen than you’ve ever felt after a sweaty exercise class!

Trevor Rawson Tai Chi
Trevor Rawson is a former British Army PTI who reluctantly took up the slow moving defensive martial art of Tai Chi in support of a friend. Then aged 37 he felt he was about 30-years too young but was astounded how good an exercise it actually was and became hooked. With regular practice it helped him overcome a number of persistent recurring injuries, improve posture and feel at the peak of his physical & mental health. After a yang style “apprenticeship” he began instructing his own groups in 2002. His aim for the taster session is to pass on something that can be remembered easily and used at home. It will be a relaxing mix of static and dynamic movements, suitable for all abilities, employing Qi Gong, Dao In, Tai Chi and appropriate Army humour. Trevor has recently moved to Great Yarmouth and will be setting up new groups in the surrounding areas.
Millie Dobie Barre
Millie has worked full time in the Fitness Industry in Suffolk for 18 years, beginning in village halls and working up to owning her own fully equipped studio in Halesworth. She has released pilates DVDs and worked with every body from an ex-Prime Minister to local schoolkids. Continuous education and workshops allows Millie to stay on top of current thoughts and approaches in the fitness world. Her latest training is to teach Bar-less Barre, luckily for us the class she is introducing us to at the yoga studio in Henham.
Meg Ayton-Andrews Mindful Yoga
Under the alias Equestrian Yogini, Meg has taken social media by storm and has a fresh approach to yoga teaching, taking her classes outdoors, on the beach and running pop ups at trendy café’s such as Honey+Harvey in Woodbridge. She teaches class from her own practice and you can tell her whole heart goes into ensuring you have the most transformative experience possible. She aims to connect breath and movement, focusing on how you feel & creating space in the body rather than what a pose is supposed to look like. Her gentle flow yoga is about learning how to come back to your inner self, releasing holding patterns that keep you from moving forward in life with each exhale.
