““Acknowledging the good that is already in your life is the foundation for all abundance.” ” ― Eckhart Tolle
Fiona completed her 200hr yoga teacher training with Mark Russell of Kridaka Yoga in 2018 and in 2021, obtained her Pregnancy Yoga qualification from the British Wheel of Yoga. She joined the Hope Studio team in 2019 and now teaches Yoga for the Mind, Body & Breath and Yoga for Runners/Athletes.
Fiona began practicing yoga and mindfulness regularly in 2014 to cope with feelings of stress and anxiety. Yoga offered a safe space for Fiona to rediscover inner confidence and a more positive, intuitive relationship with her body.
Passionate about sharing yoga in a way that celebrates whatever stage each person is at in their unique journey, Fiona’s classes are exploratory and creative, encouraging curiosity and self-compassion through mindful movement with the breath. The community element of yoga is also very important to Fiona and she likes to create a warm and welcoming environment where people can feel safe and supported.
She is dedicated to cultivating and sharing practices that have a positive impact on mental and physical health and wellbeing, drawing inspiration from a number of wonderful yoga teachers, including Vanda Scaravelli, Judy Cameron, the Mohan Family, Leslie Kaminoff and Pete Blackaby, as well as mindfulness teachers, such as Eckhart Tolle, Jon Kabat-Zinn, Tara Brach and Kristin Neff.
Rest and relaxation is very important to Fiona, particularly since becoming a mum in 2020. She enjoys going for a nice evening stroll on her own, to reset and clear her mind.
