I have a degree in Sport Rehabilitation and have a great understanding of human anatomy and movement. This is always woven through my classes. I have been teaching Yoga for 3 years following study in America and the UK. I have my Pilates qual too and love helping people to feel calm, strong and confident in their bodies. Sharing my passion with others makes me happy. I can't wait to watch Yorkshire Yogi grow and inspire our community to be happy, well and most of all to wiggle and giggle as we go.

Travelling India, the birth place of Yoga, to train was the most beautiful and challenging experience. It taught me an inner calm when faced with adversity and to accept that strength is balanced with a softness that we sometimes label as failure in the Western world. Let yoga be your union, your acceptance that all experiences and people are unique and different and allow it to help you accept this about you, the individual you, without judgement or comparison to others.

I am an Ashtanga student, rock climber, peanut butter lover and yoga teacher. My main training in guiding people through yoga came from a school in Northern India and I practice regularly under KPJAYI authorised Ashtanga teacher Joey Miles and I have recently begun being guided into the second series. I love to help people both physically within their practice, as well as helping them to find ways to focus and calm the mind.

I came to Ashtanga yoga via Triathlon in 2001 and my approach to Ashtanga is informed by the Sanskrit count and the Tristhana method of breath-gaze-posture. I teacher trained at CamYoga in Cambridge and then in Ashtanga with David Swenson. In real life I am a professional composer and a university lecturer in film music with a passion for yoga philosophy and history.

I began practising yoga four years ago and was offered a place on the Yogacampus teacher training diploma in June 2017. I am passionate about sharing my experience and knowledge to allow people to use the tools and techniques as a mechanism to deal with the challenges that life can throw at them. For me yoga it isn’t about the destination but about the journey and I believe that yoga is for everyone.

I have a deep love for Yoga & Pilates and have spent over 20 years practicing them. Having trained as a Fitness Instructor nearly 4 years ago, a lover of movement I decided to embark on my Pilates teaching last year. I’m fully qualified and raring to go! I believe in balance; it is equally important to challenge the body in class but also to include an element of meditation/ relaxation.

After moving to England in 2015, I decided it was time for a change, and I took the decision to set up Wellbeing by Montse. I’m a fully qualified therapist in VTCT L3 Complementary therapies, VTCT L4 Sports Massage and a CIMI (Certified Infant Massage Instructor: as of January 2019). Having had my own children gives me a greater empathy with other mums and I´m delighted to create bonds, confidence and love through massage.

I first came to yoga ten years ago and began teacher training in 2015. At this time I started a daily personal practice and discovered Ayurveda, both of which had a huge positive impact on my lifestyle. My teaching has a holistic and integral approach, which is influenced by a traditional system of Hatha Yoga. It is a grounding, nourishing practice - the perfect antidote to busy modern living.

My style of teaching draws from a number of different traditions; with classes that are taught from the heart, you will find yourself immersed in a deeper and more fulfilling yoga practice. Being a mum of two, I gravitated towards specialising in yoga practices for women. Bringing together my knowledge and experience as both a yoga teacher and mum to assist in guiding you through life’s different transitional periods beginning at the move towards motherhood and continuing through to menopause and beyond.
