Hello,

My name is Isobel and I am a qualified yoga teacher living in Thursley near Guildford, Farnham and Haslemere.

I began practicing yoga as part of my recovery from an illness. I can still remember the first time I tried Hatha. Standing in a Tadasana I thought to myself, ‘I have come home’.

For someone who has never quite felt comfortable in herself, yoga has become an incredible part of my life. When I am on the mat, I am myself and no longer afraid of the world. Yoga is more than just an asana practice. It teaches us how to truly live.

Roots Yoga is a safe and welcoming space for people to come along and take a break through asana (postures), pranayama (breathing) and dhyana (meditation). By taking some time out from the world we can learn to become a contented part of it.

I specialise in Hatha and Vinyasa asana but draw on other yoga traditions to give my students a variety of experiences. I teach small groups and one to ones at all levels.

If you would like to book a class, make an inquiry or just ask a question please use the information on the Contact page. I send out a weekly newsletter that includes what's on and when, drop me a line if you'd like to receive it.

Namaste.

Reviews:

'It really was so peaceful in there… Everyone who arrived were all different levels of experience and they were all so welcoming as well as having a laugh and making the atmosphere nice and relaxed.'

'Isobel was brilliant. She came over and adjusted my posture a couple of times throughout the class and automatically I could feel the difference. She also gave members of the class encouragement as we went along. All the poses and stretches were explained slowly and thoroughly, and Isobel has such a calming voice… The class was so enjoyable, and I had arrived with a bad back, which had disappeared by the time I left!’

'It was such a nice sense of community and there was a real sense of calm… I really did feel very welcome.’

'Isobel really is such a lovely soul; she will put you at ease as soon as you arrive. Give it a go! I am so glad I went yesterday, it even helped me with my sleep last night, I feel brand new today!'
