I wish I’d known what a difference yoga can make! I can’t believe how beneficial Caroline’s yoga practices have been in improving my level of movement and strength. Above all, Caroline’s therapeutic yoga practices have significantly reduced my level of joint and muscle pain. Attending both studio and online classes is only one aspect. Having access to Caroline’s extensive online library of practices, where she provides clear instruction, has been a game changer for me as I can do these practices at any time in my own home. It’s a real godsend as is her encouragement and support. Her deep knowledge and experience and her genuine care underpins all she does. I cannot recommend her yoga teaching and therapy enough!

I have been working one on one with Caroline for 2 maybe 3 years. Her gentle style of instructing and teaching therapeutic yoga, has really helped my recovery from brain surgery and in particular assisting me at re-wiring the neurological pathways in remembering how to walk, whilst improving my core strength. This has been invaluable for my confidence in everyday tasks and improve engagement with my 7 year old son, in the smallest things, like to kick a football or play soccer. I can’t recommend her highly enough. Thankyou Caroline.

Caroline is an encouraging teacher, and an excellent communicator. I use her online lessons and find that every day in my practice I can be surprised to hear and learn something new that is always a little gem of insight and awareness. I am delighted with her gentle, knowledgeable guidance, and so grateful for its ongoing benefits to my well-being.

I started private sessions with Caroline a few months ago because I couldn’t keep up with a class due to recovering from an injury. This has been the best decision. I have 1:1 time with Caroline weekly and I can feel significant healing improvement and strength returning to the injured area. The most important part of 1:1 is that it’s paced just to my capabilities, I’m not tempted to keep up with others and perhaps overdo it. Caroline keeps me within my range while encouraging gentle movements to bring about renewed strength. I am so grateful to Caroline for her guidance in my recovery.

I would like to recommend Caroline’s online Video Library as a supportive practice for all. I’m 65 years of age with health issues I’m adjusting to living with and found this course to be both easeful and beneficial. The course has taught me simple practices that I can integrate into my daily living. I’ve found that setting a goal of 15 minutes practise per day is achievable and have felt the benefits of this. The guidance Caroline provides in the videos and notes and the pace of the instructions given, builds the confidence needed to believe that when given the appropriate level of support, that it is possible to move with ease.

For a Masters Athlete, cooped up during Lockdowns, never had access to a quality Yoga Program been so important. Caroline's early morning Zoom Classes kept me strong, flexible and sane, and were a great way to stay connected to others. I can highly recommend her on-line classes, especially for the time poor.

Towards the end of last year I decided to treat myself to a couple of one-on-one sessions with Caroline. I have attended her classes for well over a decade but the opportunity to have this dedicated time with her was invaluable. I got to ask all those niggly little things you might not want to raise in a class, and she also targeted therapeutic practices towards my specific needs (and limitations ha ha). As someone who is desk- bound much of my time, the tailored treatments she sent me home with are essential to my day-to-day well- being and stamina.

I started to see Caroline on the advice of my acupuncturist for therapy and mobility for my knee. I wasn't sure what to expect as I had only done the yoga on YouTube or at a gym. After only the first session of gentile movements guided by Caroline's expertise, I found it very therapeutic and helpful with reducing the fluid and pain in my knee. The practices are easy to do at home and I practise daily. I have continued these sessions even through the many lock downs as Caroline is able to hold them online. Caroline's guidance has been invaluable not just for my knee but the strength and flexibility I have gained for my whole body. It has been a fantastic improvement and given me back the ability to do the things I took for granted, such as going for a walk or sleeping without pain.

I loved the yoga with Caroline. It was good to have some photos, videos and notes to help me with my home practice. The best of all was the restorative yoga at the end. I look forward to more.

I am a Community Health Nurse and was looking for an experienced, therapeutic yoga teacher for a mature patient. We needed someone who could work with joint limitations (due to knee issues) and was trauma informed in their approach. Yoga was identified as a gentle exercise that incorporates calming mindfulness strategies. Caroline has been incredibly professional in her approach and liaised with my patient's team to incorporate a multidisciplinary approach. The comment from my patient is ... 'I just love going to yoga with Caroline. I feel more centred and that it is helping. Caroline is helping me get back my energy, teaching me mindfulness and helping me with my pain. She is trauma informed which is important for me. I have started by doing individual sessions in the studio which is peaceful and good for the soul. Thankyou Caroline'.

When I finally decided to start yoga this year, I wanted an experienced, thoughtful teacher and Caroline ticked all the boxes. Her classes have been great for my physical and mental wellbeing. They are different every week and I am comfortable doing it at my own level on the day. Her studio is peaceful, and nothing is rushed. I feel the benefits, with less aches and pains and a clearer mind. Getting to yoga is now a priority!
