Our Ethos:

To become a yoga teacher is journey of self-exploration. Modern yoga is ever evolving and it is our aim to create intelligent teachers that develop their own voice while maintain connection to the roots of yoga.

Individuals that can guide and support students through their practice and become facilitators of their students learning. We believe that yoga teaching isn’t about creating a sequence of poses for people to learn, rather to guide students through a journey of mindful movement allowing them to discover their bodies along side the contemplative aspects of yoga.

- Our lead teacher is Holly Warren:

Holly Warren is a lifelong student of Yoga. Her ability to convey movement dialogue in an accessible and intelligent way comes from her eclectic background as a professional contemporary dancer, leadership development facilitator and international retreat teacher. She integrates these threads into her teaching alongside yoga nidra and mindfulness. Holly has over 1600hrs teacher training experience. She acknowledges her parents for their non-dogmatic introduction to the ethics and pillars of Yoga.

Our other leading teacher is studio owner Vanessa Davies (feel free to call in at the studio anytime to meet her for a chat as she is there most days!)

Vanessa Davies found her love of yoga through desperately trying to find ease in her tight and tired muscles when marathon training. With 9 years of teaching experience in schools behind her, she craved freedom and creativity and decided to make a change. In moving to Australia her love of yoga continued and it was here she decided to combine her skills as a teacher with her love of yoga. Now successful studio owner and yoga teacher you will find Vanessa sharing her passion for yoga and mindfulness here at Calm, Burton on Trent.
