Hollie

Yoga Instructor
Hollie yoga instructor

Hollie’s passion for movement came from an early involvement in dance, and when her friend dragged her to a class at power living she instantly fell in love with the practice. Since then she has continued to explore all that yoga has to offer, completing her foundations teacher training with BodyMindLife in 2014 and intermediate qualifications with inyoga.

As a person who enjoys a variety of physical activity, Hollie feels yoga is the perfect complement to any training program. This is because yoga has a range of benefits that nourish the body, mind and soul. Not only does it tone your muscles and develop flexibility, it also helps release un wanted stress, connects you to your breath and quietens a busy mind.

Hollie believes yoga is more than just a physical practice, its about positive steps and feeling great!
