Katy BatemanKaty Bateman

Like many yogis, Katy initially started practising as a means of exercise, and to find a place to escape the hustle and bustle of living in a busy city – but very quickly fell in love with the feelings of balance, strength and serenity yoga instills. Katy is blessed to have studied with many wonderful teachers, and is especially grateful for the teaching and constant guidance from her teacher Bridget Woods-Kramer, with whom she gained her 200hr certification, and is currently completing her Advanced Yoga Teacher Training. Through her practice, Katy has learned to be more spiritually and emotionally in tune with herself, and the world around her.

Katy's classes are creative, playful and dynamic. Using the principles of Anusara Yoga, she emphasises proper use of breath and alignment to encourage a safe and playful practice. Katy's teaching inspires connection so expect the odd class to include some fun partner work to take your practice deeper.



Nicky Crabb

Since Nicky first stepped onto a yoga mat nearly 30 years ago she has been hooked. At the time she noticed that yoga helped to relieve her aching back. It also helped to calm her anxiety and made her feel more at ease with the demands of modern life.

Over the years she has enjoyed many different styles of yoga from Sivananda to Astanga Vinyasa, discovering Vajrasati yoga after the birth of her first child. She was attracted by the focus on breath and body awareness and enjoyed the combination of humour and absorption, beginning the rigorous 500 hour training course in 2011 and teaching regular classes in Brighton and Hove since early 2012. She has gone on to train with Charlotte Watts in yoga for stress, anxiety and burnout, and combines these influences in her classes, which aim to help students find some space, joy and meditative movement in their day.

Nicky is a 500 hour registered yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance UK.
