What is ashtanga yoga?
Ashtanga yoga is a dynamic and physically strong style of yoga where movement is synchronised with breath, linking a set sequence of poses in a constant flow. This creates a detoxifying heat and stills the mind. Practitioners often feel stronger, more flexible and calmer as a result.
What is yin yoga?
Yin yoga works on stretching the body’s connective tissue (ligaments, bones and joints) in the pelvis, hips and spine. We hold postures for around five minutes and most are seated.

A keen sportswoman all her life, Cathy was introduced to ashtanga yoga in 1995. She fell in love with it immediately, and from that moment on she has never looked back. Her love and passion for the practice shines through in her teaching style, which is both enthusiastic and encouraging.
She always manages to inspire students and guide them through the ashtanga sequence in a warm and friendly way and her classes are always fun.
She runs BAYoga Studio in Berkhamsted, Herts.
"I love the fact that I arrive dead on my feet after a long day at work.
After a wonderful ashtanga work out with Cathy I feel alive, fit and
wonderfully calm. Her teaching is simply the best." Tony
Clare started teaching in 2010 and originally trained in the Sivananda yoga tradition, doing her teacher training in an ashram in the Indian Himalayas. She taught in London at various studios including at the Sivananda Centre in Putney and loves the bhakti (devotional) side of yoga. Clare completed a 500 hour training with Ashtanga and Iyengar teacher Michel Besnard in Thailand in 2012. Since her return, she has taught yin yoga across Hertfordshire.
Clare studies yin yoga in London with Norman Blair and she enjoys how yin provides the opportunity to surrender and release, whilst ashtanga builds heat and strength in her body.
She teaches workshops and weekly classes at BAYoga Studio. For more information about Clare, visit www.shantayoga.co.uk.
"Yoga with Clare is as much about the mindfulness of yoga as the poses. She is a very patient yet enthusiastic teacher, encouraging her pupils to deepen their practice and confidence within a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. I always leave feeling calm, re-focused and re-energized." Sandra
