Pola Cencigh

After over 20 years in the fitness industry I turned to yoga as a way of healing during serious illness and the stillness and connection I felt with my higher self was like nothing I had ever experienced. 

The controlled movements, the pranayama and meditation were the perfect complement to the healing journey I was on – for my  body, mind and soul.

As I continued to explore the practice I became more aware of my limiting beliefs, the constant chatter from my inner critic and an internal fear that restricted me from reaching my full potential on and off the mat.

With a dedicated practice over the last 8 years each time I come to the mat I discover more, it is forever changing, challenging and rewarding all at the same time and cannot imagine my life without yoga.

 

My gift now is helping others realise their full potential through the practice of yoga no matter their age, their size or history. I love to inspire them to be the best version of themselves inside and out.

Linda Banning

I believe I am a compassionate, energised and passionate being . I love to create a more mindful existence for my students, finding their strengths and overcoming their challenges through their asana practice. 

 

I have always lead an active lifestyle and over the many years of training my body became injured and required lots of love and attention.  Once beginning an asana practice, I became fully aware of how amazing my body felt.  The spiritual journey that is woven into this practice has allowed me to embrace my true self, live with growth and knowledge to find my full potential, while cultivating balance, strength and creating space to find peace.

 

Through life experiences, faith and courage I have come to the realisation that the yoga mat is a place of comfort and the asana practice leads to a calm and clear mind while conditioning the body all at once.

 

I aim to encourage and assist my students on their discovery of yoga. Guiding them to be the best they can be.
