PACK LEADER | YIN | RESTORATIVE | LOVE TO LAY DOWN | PREGNANCY | MAMA & BABY
Different ways of moving have always been in my life; I love the energy of dynamic practices and training and have discovered ways to balance and complement this by going more ‘yin-side’. I come from an education background, which led me to teaching children yoga alongside my other practices such as Yin and Yang Yoga, restorative and pre and post-natal Yoga.
PACK COORDINATOR | ENERGISING FLOW & MEDITATION | WILD FLOW
I like to be challenged in physical activities and love to move in a different ways, weather it comes through a sweaty gym class to a slow pace yoga class. I also like to be in a place where it challenges my mindset to grow as a person and how to involve this in our daily lives to be able to love balanced and healthy. So as a yoga teacher I am intrigued at at the mental state of mind to discover the deeper layers of a practice beyond just the physical. I have a mischievous side and like to approach my classes with a big dose of fun to balance out the hard work. You will also find me at the studio behind the computer helping to run Wild Wolf’s smoothly!
WOLF PACK ASSISTANT | POWER FLOW
At the studio I am behind the scenes of all things visual, creative, and sensory. With the sole purpose of ensuring that whoever arrives experiences warmth, inclusivity, comfort and of course, tea. I help maintain a space that is open and safe, encouraging strong human connections, mindful movement, inner-curiosity and self-discovery. As a teacher I try and encourage power, strength and levity in my classes, not just in the physical sense. The inherent power and strength that comes in moments of silence and stillness, and the levity that comes with a smile and a breath.
PILATES INSPIRED: CORE & BOOTY BURN
I hail from a varied background of training giving me a broad pallet to play with when creating classes. I trained as a sprinter and then coached athletics from a young age. Injury led me down a different route where I went on to study Contemporary dance and fell in love with movement. Entering the fitness world I qualified as a personal trainer, Pilates, and Yoga teacher. I also run a Barre fitness studio in Bristol where I regularly teach. Teaching is in my bones with over 10 years experience, I love to have fun and make you work hard!
Power Yoga | Intro to Yoga | Slow Flow & Wild Stretch
Yoga is a powerful tool that can help us perform better at the things we love, whether that’s in our professional, personal or leisure lives. I aim to hold a safe and inclusive space for people to take control of their bodies and explore movements that can free up the common aches and pains that come with modern lifestyles. As a teacher, and as a student I continue to study a multitude of yoga and movement disciplines from tradition yoga systems to free movement, and share the most appropriate in fun, creative and liberating sessions that are accessible to all ages and levels of experience.
WILD FLOW | SLOW FLOW & WILD STRETCH
I think my yoga would usually be described as accessible. Demystifying the ancient ways of yoga and presenting it in a way that is both useful and meaningful to the general population in this day and age, maybe with a side helping of dad jokes. My own practice (and therefore what I guide) is all about the pathway to embodiment, a physical and mental practice of self inquiry, not obsessing over “perfect postures” but about what comes up within as we transition from place to place. Taking it slow as life is too fast in the city. Listening and feeling deeply. We are all different and I think our yoga practice should be too.
Wild Flow Yoga
I have lived a life infused with Yoga since I was a young teenager. While studying a degree in Public Health in 2004 I discovered the dynamic Ashtanga Yoga practice and moved deeply into the Mysore form. Studying in India brought me closer to the sister school of Yoga, Ayurveda. My fascination with nutrition and healing plants continues to grow in the form of teaching and conducting one to one consultations. My travels have lead me to study with many yoga schools and I love bringing this rich blend of styles to the Wild Wolf community.
WILD FLOW | ENERGISING FLOW
Much of my life has been spent training in the creative body, diverse years studying movement, performance, opera and visual arts furthering my fascination with the body’s ability to creatively express. This inspires patience and playfulness in my classes in a weaving together of travels and studies in Vinyasa, Hatha, Jivamukti over the years. As well as public classes it’s a joy to teach internationally at festivals & work locally with community groups and schools to bring yoga and arts practices to more isolated communities. The root of my desire to teach and build yoga ‘union’ through community.
I love to share Energizing Flow & Wild Flow classes with the warmth of the Wild Wolf community.
DHARMA YOGA | FORREST INSPIRED
I have been truly fortunate to have studied ancient Yoga practice from Masters such as Sri Dharma Mittra, Ana Forrest and Ambra Vallo. And i now practise a Life Philosophy of Tibetan Buddhism-Compassion & Non Violence. I fully believe in my heart that eating a plant-based diet and practicing yoga are what helped me get to such a peaceful state of mind and a strong body.
I feel so blessed that I get to share my knowledge with my students at Wild Wolf’s Yoga!
POWER FLOW: PLAY
I’m Lydia and my background is gymnastics. I have been coaching children and adults for three years. I am also a qualified Personal Trainer and improving people’s lifestyles and changing attitudes to training is central to all I do. Bringing gymnastics into your workouts is challenging and fun! I believe it’s important to enjoy what you do in an environment you enjoy being in.
Ashtanga Yoga | New-Ish to Ashtanga
I am a firm believer that there is always an option for everyone and keep my classes as accessible as possible so will give opportunity for you to soften your practice or really challenge yourself depending on what you feel you need, which inevitably will vary from day to day. I currently assist my teacher, Melanie Cooper, with her teacher training as well as her Mysore classes, both of which are a great resource to further my knowledge and experience which is very important to me. I like to keep classes focused but not too serious so expect to have fun too!
Power Flow Yoga
I always refer to yoga as my anchor; the knowledge that I can get on my mat, move, meditate, breathe, build strength, find some softness and cultivate calm, has taken me through some tough times! I am passionate about how the various tools of yoga can help alleviate anxiety. I love to practice strong Vinyasa Flow and Yin. As well as a strength building practice, I see Vinyasa as a moving meditation, which brings focus, stillness, and awareness. These days I also add a fair bit of Yin to my ‘yang’, slowing down and going deeper, physically and mentally.
Whilst on the path to becoming a yoga teacher I found Wild Wolfs Yoga, a sanctuary of love, support and knowledge that welcomed me with open arms into their wolf pack. As their first Karma Yogi my role has been to contribute to the general running of the studio – making sure it’s spick and span, incense and candles lit, tea brewing and ready for you to walk in and flow on our freshly infused yoga mats. I have a background in arts so I also have the pleasure of helping with lots of creative elements of the studio.
Meet Jodie also known as “Sunshine for breakfast” She’s our karma yogi that helps out to create our beautiful illustrations for our theme of the week. Jodie as been committed to the studio since the start. We love and support our Ray of sunshine fully!
