About Our Teachers
Laura Feeney, Owner (BA International Affairs, American University of Paris; MSc Gender Studies, London School of Economics; YTTC Yoga Teaching Diploma; Birthlight Diploma; YTTC Certificates in Yoga for Back Care & Yoga for Muscles, Bones & Joints; Roll Model Method instructor)
Laura started her movement career at the age of 2, when her mother put her in ballet to burn off some of the excess energy. She credits yoga with saving her knees after years of all kinds of dance, gymnastics, aerobics, high heels and uneven pavements. Laura's classes are run with warmth, humour, fun, and a passionate belief in the benefits of yoga. Although influenced and inspired by all the amazing teachers she has had over the years, Laura's MOST amazing teachers continue to be her students.

CACI NON-SURGICAL FACELIFT
Originally developed 20 years ago to treat sports injuries, severe burns, Bell's Palsy and strokes, CACI has evolved into a non-surgical facelift. CACI works by gently stimulating skin tissues which in turn improves the elasticity of the face, increases oxygenation and the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. It is an effective way to reverse the ageing process and keep your skin looking healthy when use as part of an on-going maintenance programme.
CACI specialist Jill has nearly 20 years' experience and has treated numerous celebrities, including Gillian Taylforth & Lorraine Chase.
