A dynamic flowing style of yoga, harmonising breath and movement to give strength, grace and freedom. Vinyasa Flow incorporates many of the same postures in Ashtanga, but focus is placed on the creative sequencing and everchanging order of poses, finding seamlessness and fluidness between postures.
Sammy fell in love with yoga because of its endless ability to continuously feed the body, mind and soul and she loves being able to share this gift with others. Sammy teaches mainly Vinyasa yoga, always with a strong aim of enabling others to flow through their asana practice with a detailed focus on the breath, alignment and awareness. It is incredibly important to her that every class she teaches is delivered with a strong sense of kindness and compassion, constantly encouraging self-love, acceptance and smiling! Sammy's background is in dance, studying contemporary dance at one of the UK’s leading conservatoires. Yoga was introduced to her as a supplementary practice for her dance training, however, when life threw up some unexpected challenges, it soon became an integral part of her personal growth and development. Facilitating yoga for those of all ages and experience levels is something that fills her with great amounts of joy and teaches her more about the practice and herself everyday.
Hi there! I'm Sophie Higgins
- a nutritional therapist and yoga teacher. I believe in taking a fully holistic approach to nutritional therapy and aim to get the body and mind back into a healthy state of balance. I tailor healthcare plans to the individual, and by making goals and targets that are achievable, enable you to take full control of your diet, health and lifestyle. We will work together to discover the underlying causes of any ailments you may have, healing the body naturally, and not merely covering up the symptoms. I have a special interest in digestive health, but also take on a wide variety of other nutritional and health related issues, including insomnia, hormonal issues, reproductive health, eating disorders, sports nutrition, fatigue and energy issues, skin issues, thyroid disorders and weight loss.
Siv fell in love with yoga ten years ago as a counter balance to long distance running, cycling and swimming and as a way of challenging both her body and her mind in a healthy, nourishing way. After dabbling in Hatha, Ashtanga and Power Yoga, Siv eventually settled on Vinyasa Flow because of the creativity and playfulness it offered, and eventually pursued Teacher Training.
Expect dynamic and playful movements, a focus on breathing, a few laughs and a carefully curated playlist. Siv is passionate about making yoga approachable and accessible and her classes are open to all levels, with modifications and options available for both more and less experienced practitioners.

Jessica grew up in between London and Hong Kong in a sports obsessed family. After injuring her right shoulder Jessica was left unable to practice other sports and turned to yoga. Yoga helped her to manage the impingement in the right shoulder but she found many other benefits from yoga through her daily practice and meditation. Being someone who was into sprints and H.I.T training Jessica found yoga a challenge mentally and physically and worked hard to reprogram her mind and body. Jessica's passion for yoga led her to do a 200 hour yoga teacher training alongside her full time job. Jessica continues to grow attending advance yoga courses and loves getting upside down and playing with inversions. Her passion for a dynamic practice led Jessica to find Acroyoga, which she dedicates a lot of her time to also. Having realised how powerful the benefits of yoga can be, Jessica wants to share what she has found, by encouraging those that haven't already tried it and continuing to inspire those that have. Jessica is whole-heartedly dedicated to helping people find continued happiness in a world that is so frantic and truly believes that yoga can help.
