Every day it pulls me in a little deeper! I will always retain my love of moving to music and this is my key teaching style which is why I often smile to myself as I OM. I love mixing what I know about the human body with traditional aspects of yoga. It is this modern approach that makes our YTT both unique and successful.

Absolutely loved the course this weekend. Monica is a true inspiration and an amazing teacher. I learnt so much over the last 2 days.
The course was intense but worthwhile. My tutor Diane Leek was my guardian Angel. Total support and kind words when I felt other matters were getting me down. She was my inspiration and feel so lucky to have met her and learned so much from Diane.
Support from Di was ‘beyond the call of duty’. she turned everything around speedily and was always motivating and more than supportive – exemplary !!! I cannot praise her highly enough and ALL of the face to face sessions in the UK and Ibiza were not only totally committed but so inspirational (both Di and Jayne). I love their perspective on yoga – more than refreshing – challenging much of the ‘norms’ and providing a wonderful insight and guiding in a so different a way to the current trends. difficult to find the words to express how much I have valued their teaching and support, let alone their own knowledge and abilities! And they have NOT paid me to write this 🙂
I will miss them both !
