Pete qualified as a yoga teacher in 2013 and now holds an Intermediate level 1 certificate. He has had a long term interest in bodywork and meditation having practised T'ai Chi and Kung Fu prior to discovering Iyengar Yoga. He is also a qualified masseur.
Cori started practising Iyengar Yoga while living in Bristol in 1996 and was hooked from her very first class, struck by the transformative nature of the practice. It helped her to gain physical strength and recovery from a series of injuries sustained while practising trapeze and circus in her twenties. Also she found it gave her a sense of improved mental and emotional well-being. She says "Yoga is a powerful tool to help develop self awareness and take responsibility for your own physical, emotional and spiritual health" Originally qualifying as teacher in 2008 Cori has since attained her Intermediate level 3 teaching certificate and has attended classes at the RIMYI (Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Institute) in Pune, India. She is particularly interested in functional bodywork and the therapeutic potential of yoga.
