Helen Dempster

Helen believes that Yoga is for everybody, not just the thin and flexible as magazines would have you believe. There is no competition in Yoga, just a chance for you to take some time out for yourself, honouring your body and its limitations (of which we all have – yes, Helen included)
Classes include breathing exercises, relaxation and asanas (physical postures) all to work towards stilling the fluctuations of the mind. Helen completed her 200hr teacher training in Turkey under renowned teacher Ann-Marie Newland of Sun Power Yoga
