Fresh In Your Heels
Tuesdays 7:10pm - 8:10pm
Dance is my number one passion in life. I studied ballet, tap & modern from the age of 5 – 11. However I was always excited and inspired by Breaking and Hip Hop style dance. One of my favourite films from a very young age is ‘Breakdance’. Prior to Fresh I was in a street dance troupe from the age of 13 – 19. I have taught dance in Bristol and Bath since the age of 19 to young people and adults.
My career expanded as a Choreographer when I taught in The Egg, Theatre Royal Bath in 2007-2010 and created dance pieces for Plays. One of which, ‘ Max & Beth’ toured to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2009. In 2012 I was hired to dance for a club in China for 3 months. In 2018 my troop and I were in the film 'The Festival'; we played the part as the dancers on the main stage at the festival. It was a fantastic experience and opportunity. I get a huge buzz watching my choreography come to life and an even bigger buzz from performing. Dance to me is like breathing!
Hatha Vinyasa Yoga
What does yoga mean to you?
From me I found yoga during a difficult period of my life and it brought me peace. It continues to teach me to be free, to grow and to love. My hope is to take you on a journey, exploring yoga through its fullest meaning. Including meditation, pranayama and weaving in yoga philosophy to help ground you on and off the mat.
Hatha Vinyasa combines the traditional asana practice with a playful, flowing energy focusing on breath and alignment. I love to offer challenges which help us grow, transform and have fun whilst always being mindful that everyone’s body is different.
Yoga for Power, Strength & Wellbeing
Mondays 8.20 - 9.20pm
My first training was with Swami Vishnuswaroop in Katmandu, Nepal. This was a 6 week 1:1 intensive training and it was here that I became passionate about the teaching of yoga.
In this training we focussed on the combination of Asana (posture), Pranayama (breathing) and Bandha (lock) and it is from my ongoing practice these have become more prevalent in my practice and teaching. This teaching comes from the Satyananda tradition. I have completed a British Wheel 1 yr Yoga foundation and 3 yr teacher training course with Tara Fraser founder of Yoga Junction, London.
I have experienced in :
1:1 sessions with children with complex needs and learning difficulties.
Yoga to adults who have severe mental health needs.
Weekly classes to women offenders.
General yoga classes - all abilities and ages.
1:1 session to children and adults to improve practice, relaxation, health and wellness.
Pregnancy pre and post natal yoga for parents .
Freedom Soul Dance

Libby’s Yoga journey began back when she was about 15. She was diagnosed with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis in her knee and as a result was very limited to physical activities and sport. She was encouraged to try Yoga, and so the love affair began.
Libby’s teaching style is playful and intuitive, and students are encouraged to move at their own pace, finding that sweet balance of softness and strength. Expect classes to be fluid and explorative, delving deep into the body and the breath with an ever evolving element as we tune into the seasons, weather and nature.
Mondays & Thursdays - 6:00pm - 7:00pm
Monday & Thursday - 7:10pm - 8:10pm
Hi I'm Niki, I am passionate about fitness, health and wellness.
I love working closely with my clients, creating unique, fun and effective training plans to help them improve their overall fitness and well-being.
When I'm not teaching I love walking my two little dogs, cooking, running, spending time with my family & friends, and I’ve recently taken up cold water swimming!
