Fiona has been practising Yoga since the age of 14, when she accidentally attended a Hatha class at her local village hall. She was drawn to Yoga for the physical aspect of the practice, and soon discovered the immense emotional and spiritual healing it can bring.
After falling in love with Ashtanga yoga in her twenties, Fiona completed her 200hours Ashtanga and Rocket Yoga teacher training with The Yoga People in London in 2011, and did a further 100 hours teacher training in Yin Yoga in 2014 with Sebastien Pucelle and Murielle Burellier. She taught in various London studios including Frame, Yoga Centric, Virgin Active, Fitness First, Yotopia, Blue Cow Yoga, LA Fitness, and Soho House, before moving to Manchester in September 2015.
In her teaching, Fiona combines the strength and intensity of Ashtanga and Vinyasa yoga with the slow pace and the accepting nature of Yin. She encourages a strong connection between movement and breath in her classes and likes to spend time working deeply into postures.
Yoga has been a very important part of Fiona’s life. Also a professional actor and singer, she spent the last two years in the West End cast of The Phantom of The Opera. Yoga gave her the strength and stamina to perform eight shows a week and helped her to stay calm under pressure!
