MEET THE TEAM

TWIN YOGA

Daisy Turner and Pippa Jacob are Twin Yoga, a double act bringing fun, mindful practice to your mat.​

You can expect to find Twin Yoga combining hatha flow with chanting, breath work (pranayama) and guided meditation. The benefit of having two teachers is that one can lead and the other can move through the room, giving personal attention and adjustments to help each student find their next level.

HEATHER BOON

Heather is definitely powered by yoga!

“I’ve experienced first-hand, yoga’s ability to restore and transform. As a teacher, I’m down to earth and have a methodical approach to alignment.

Yoga is for EVERYONE, young, old, male, female, every size and flexibility or inflexibility. With each class, I feel a renewed passion that comes from a clear intention. Hopefully, there is a sense of fun, whilst encouraging contemplation and introspection.

I love Props (specialist yoga equipment), as they aid progression in practice. Yoga is a way of living, not just a pose to be achieved; but, we all enjoy seeing our own asana practice deepen and develop.

I’m very hands on with adjustments, as I feel adjustments aid increasing awareness. I have also trained in restorative and therapeutic yoga and believe that being a yoga teacher requires constant training and reflection.”

Heather’s sessions throughout the day will guide you safely through simple and complex postures with alignment and ease.

JENNA GOODING of Gong bath therapy Suffolk 

Jenna says:

I am a Gong therapist and I am passionate about helping people to heal through the work of the Gong.

I trained with the college of Sound healing with World renowned Gong master Sheila Whittaker. I have also trained with Gong master Don Connreaux and Aiden Macintrye up to advanced level. I have trained extensively and continue to train and develop my Gong therapy to reach as many people as possible from all walks of life, its important that as many people have access to Gong healing so the benefits are far and wide reaching.

I create sacred space where people  can explore the landscape and language of vibration and Sound within a safely held space.

Connecting in with the essence of themselves, opening up the heartspace to expand consciousness, intuition and ultimately access the healing inside themselves.

The Gong is the spirit song

The primal whisper of  the soul

A flash of inner light

The sound within all sounds

A infinite healing wisdom that speaks to the heart of us all.
