Vanessa Hartley

Founder

Vanessa’s background with the body began with dance at the age of five, always sensing that there was more than just the physical, emotional and the mental form; it was a way she was able to connect with her soul.

She went on to have a professional career, but her body had been broken by the pressure of the dance world and of course the ego. At 20 years of age, she experienced her first yoga class, which was the beginning of her journey toward self-love.

Through her own inner journey experience, Vanessa understands how trauma can be stored in the body. How thought forms can manifest as blockages. How patterns of the body can mirror the patterns of the mind and vice versa, and how this hinders the flow of the body and our very own belief systems.

This is why Vanessa takes a very intuitive approach with her teachings. No two classes will ever be the same and with a background in energy healing, her hands-on approach will guide you to either let something go and release or find the strength to ground and find comfort in those moments where the practice feels hard. With a light-hearted and humorous teaching style you will not be able to take yourself too seriously and you will be able to relax as you get to know yourself on the yoga mat!!

Vanessa received her level 4 Diploma qualification with British Wheel of Yoga under the guidance of Tarik Dervish.
