'Isobel is the reason I love yoga having never really practised it before. She is very calm and patient and pays a lot of attention to making sure you are in the correct position. I’ve found that practising regularly completely changes my mindset for the day. Not only that, I feel stronger and it has really taken me on a path of improved wellbeing' - Student

'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!'
