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.

Taking a sabbatical from the city in 2003 I traveled to Grass Valley, Nevada City via San Francisco and completed my 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training. Immersed in an ashram environment, I was taught in the gurukula teaching system living alongside our Swami. Studying and practicing Sivananda yoga and meditation in its many aspects, including Bhakti, Karma, Raja, Kundalini, as well as the more recognized Hatha yoga. In 2007 I completed an additional course of study with the Yoga Bugs organization and teach children’s yoga to LIVELY groups of 3-11 year olds!

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 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).

With a practice and study of yoga spanning almost 20years my classes offer a depth of knowledge, experience and finely tuned guidance delivered to my students, allowing them to share in something I feel truly passionate about. 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 has allowed me to develop focused classes and workshops that will assist in guiding you through life’s different transitional periods beginning at the move towards motherhood and continuing through to menopause and beyond

Yoga has been a regular part of my life for about 7 years. I practice because it makes me happy. Yoga allows me to have a calmer approach to life and improves my ability to deal with everyday stresses, as well as creating a healthy, strong and flexible mind and body. I completed my 200-hour Vinyasa Yoga teacher training with the Yoga Space and my children’s Yoga teacher training with YogaKidz Worldwide. I enjoy practicing and teaching both fast and slow flow classes and believe there is room for both in anyone’s practice. In my other life, I work as an environmental scientist, restoring the moorlands of the Peak District and South Pennine Moors. I love being outside, be it camping, climbing, hiking, running or open water swimming. I believe you can achieve anything if you really want it and though I may not be the fastest swimmer, I have swum both the River Dart and Hurly Burly 10K’s.

A few years ago I received an invitation to uncover my heart’s truest desire - To learn, share and teach the incredible, ancient tradition of Yoga. I aim to host creative, nurturing, loving environments where together we can practice intelligent asana (posture) sequences, dynamic prana flow (maximising the benefits of breath) and mindfulness. The combination of practices can help cultivate understanding, strength and stability not only of your physical body but of your mind and your soul too. This then enables us to live content lives full of love, meaning and radiance. There are no prerequisites to yoga; please start from where you are and as you are. I look forward to the time when our pathways to inner peace and contentment cross.
