Melanie Cook


Melanie was introduced to yoga and meditation in her early teens and has been teaching for over 25 years. Her first experience of yoga brought her out of physical pain and distress and to a place of physical and emotional exploration for the first time. With the guidance of her first yoga teacher this  life changing experience quickly brought her to The Yoga for Health Foundation, where she completed their teaching training scheme, and then went on to complete their advanced training in remedial yoga and yoga therapy.

She was fortunate enough to then live and work at this residential yoga centre where she experienced the wide ranging benefits of yoga, especially to those with severe health conditions, along with learning from yoga, pranayama, ayurveda and meditation teachers from around the world.

Sue Northrop


Sue is passionate about making Yoga available for everyone, especially people who think Yogas not for them. She teaches in Care Homes, Day Centres, runs classes for older adults in the community, now online, as well as 1:1 Yoga.

Sue has been a student of Yoga for over 25 years and Yoga teacher for five.  She started Yoga for exercise when she couldnt run or cycle.  Caring for parents with dementia  and working full time took their toll physically and emotionally leading to serious back problems and depression. Yoga classes kept Sue going through tough times.   Melanie was one of Sues teachers and through her classes Sue experienced the deep healing and peace Yoga can bring in times of great personal challenge.
