ABOUT SAM

Hey, I am Sam. I found yoga when I was at university. It gave me an hour of peace once a week where the only thing that mattered was what was happening in the room. Once I finished my studies, I continue to attend regularly. It offered me a place to chill out, focus on learning more about my body and get a gentle workout in that was enjoyable! This was a massive turning point for me and the interest continued to grow until I decided to train as a teacher. I want my classes to offer the same benefits that I experienced.

 

Since completing my 200-hour yoga teacher training in 2019 at Whitespace Yoga Studio, I started teaching beginners classes in Northampton, Northamptonshire designed to be accessible, yet challenging. ​These classes find a balance between strength, stretch and breath as my goal is to help students strengthen the body, experience breathing techniques and a mind-body-breath connection. I have a personal interest in anatomy and injury which is growing with research and training and is weaved into my classes.

 

I love to see each student's progressions as they practice yoga. Both my classes started as beginners and have progressed into mixed ability classes with the students. Due to the on-going pandemic, we have moved our classes online through Zoom. A class runs on Monday and Thursday from 6.30pm to 7.30pm.
