Sheena Louise
Operational Lead

My background is in Music, Youth & Family work, and ever since returning home from my first yoga teacher training I've been keen to work with those who might not usually find themselves in a Yoga Studio. ​

My passion lays in working with women; I am trained in yoga therapy for women's health, pregnancy and post natal yoga, specialist post natal massage and Closing the Bones ritual healing, as well as more recent studies into herbal gynecology.

Holding space for women to experience their innate bodily wisdom brings all the joy for me.


Anna Powell (she/her)

I am a yoga facilitator with a background in neuroscience research. My own practice has taken me on a profound journey of healing and discovery, and I feel privileged to hold space for others to explore the gifts of yoga. For me, yoga is a practice of empowerment and liberation and I strongly believe these practices should be available to all, for the benefit of all.
