Mollie McClelland Morris ~

Mollie’s signature style of Vinyasa Flow yoga teaching unites the beauty and wisdom of the yogic teachings with embodied self-inquiry, physical challenge, sensitivity and fun. As creator of Grace and Presence Yoga Teacher Training and Mentoring Courses, she has over 15 years of experience teaching, mentoring and encouraging people to live healthy, happy, mindful lives. She co-owned and co-directed Sadhaka Yoga Centre in London, until it was closed due to a fire. Since then she has been practicing self-reflection through the journey of motherhood, and bringing Franklin Method wisdom and embodiment to her yoga practice and life.

Fern Trelfa ~

Fern is a creative creature and has come to perceive the practice of vinyasa as energetic artistry. Her teachings stay rooted in traditional philosophy yet she very much embraces a modern approach to working with the physical; embracing the body's own incredible engineering in dynamic asana - and life! - with ultimate support and grace. Fern discovered yoga over ten years ago whilst struggling with severe periods of anxiety. Over time it has come to be the thread that ties all of life together, anchoring her in self belief and purpose. Fern loves people, nature and turning dreams into realities. She brings all of this together in her work as a yoga teacher, body worker and Creator of Maison Fish retreats.  www.maisonfish.com/
