Amanda Glover

Amanda teaches Vinyasa Flow and Yin classes at Complete Yoga and believes that all yoga should be taught in a relaxed, safe and fun way. She offers a complementary mix of vinyasa flow with the precision of Iyengar for alignment – along with a contemplative, breath-centred practice. Amanda’s Yin classes are deeply relaxing, helping you learn how to step out of the thinking mind and into the body, taking you on a meditative journey into each pose, using bolsters, bricks and blocks to allow everyone to access all the poses and let go of physical and mental tension.

In a supportive, compassionate environment each student is able to develop at their own pace, while Amanda’s integrated blend of all of her training creates classes suited for all levels.

This wealth of experience has given her the ability to adapt and tailor her teaching to a wide range of people with varied requirements and in different yoga environments.

One of her corporate students says: “Amanda’s yoga classes are some of the most beneficial I’ve ever taken. They’ve really helped me reduce my discomfort and relax the stresses – both physical and psychological – of a desk-based life.”

Amanda adds: “It’s so rewarding to see students transform their lives through the practice of yoga”.

Jacqui Winterflood

Jacqui is the instructor at our Vinyasa classes at Complete Yoga. Her teaching style is patient and supportive, and focused on helping students perfect their breath and body alignment

Jacqui has been practicing yoga for over 20 years. She was diagnosed with an auto-immune disorder causing extreme stiffness and pain in the muscles and joints.  She believes that yoga has saved her from becoming immobile, keeping her joints and muscles flexible and strong, allowing her to reduce the amount of medication prescribed.

This personal experience opened up a whole new awareness with yoga for Jacqui,  encouraging her to continue her studies and qualify in Accessible yoga. 

Jacqui continues to put all her energy into studying and following her passion to encourage everyone of all ages, shapes, sizes, health, ability and disability to discover the joy of true yoga.

She strongly believes that yoga is about finding the true connection, acceptance and love for the body we have been given and celebrating that.

Outside of her yoga, Jacqui spends time with her husband, 2 teenage boys and schnoodle dog called Tassie, named after Tasmania where she is originally from.

Maeva Wright

Maeva teaches Vinyasa Flow at Complete Yoga.

Through intention, meditation, pranayama & asana, her goal is to help students connect with themselves, while the noise of the “outside world” fades away in the background. She teaches with the goal to encourage introspection and self discovery.

Maeva’s yoga journey began in London back in 2012 and ever since yoga has become her refuge and source of inspiration. She has embraced it as a lifestyle and not just as a “powerful” workout. Yoga helps her to let go of the day, navigate the “ups and downs” of daily life and get restful sleep at night.

As Maeva says, “My classes are for everyone, from newbies to experienced yogis. It’s perfectly ok if you can’t touch your toes. In my classes you will learn to become more flexible, tune into your body and become fitter in the process. But most importantly you’ll feel relaxed and gain clarity. There is nothing that fulfils me more than seeing you taking your first steps towards your own yoga journey.”

Maeva’s Teaching Qualifications

  • 200 Hours RYT
  • 85 Hours Pregnacy and Post Natal Yoga with Sally Parkes
  • 40 Hours Yoga Nindra with Melanie Cooper and Jane Wadsten

Sarah Gero

Sarah has been practicing yoga for over 10 years and is forever a student of the practice. Through the healing powers of yoga, she aspires to help others reconnect with themselves and the world around them. In her classes, Sarah encourages her students to notice their bodies and recognise internal sensations as a way of integrating mind-body awareness into the present moment.

Following gallbladder removal surgery, Sarah became more dedicated to her yoga practice, using it a tool to heal and get stronger- physically and mentally. Through her teaching, she now aims to bring the healing powers of yoga to her students to support their wellbeing.

Her yoga classes are tailored to meet the needs of her students while providing an environment for practitioners to feel empowered. She believes each person’s practice is unique and invites her students to come exactly as they are and celebrate their own abilities. Through asana Sarah invites her students to cultivate balance and harmony on their mats, in their nervous systems, and in their lives.

Outside of her yoga teaching she loves cooking, spending time outside especially at the beach, and travelling.

Ying Wang

Ying teaches Vinyasa and Slow Flow class at Complete Yoga.

Whether it’s your first class or you practice yoga regularly, Ying always cultivates a safe space for everyone to find their own approach to the practice and connect to their inner selves. She believes in ” the only journey is the journey within “and what is learnt on the mat can be applied to life.

Over the past decade, she has developed her own approach, combining Western and Eastern, physical practices and philosophy. With a background in violin, dancing and fashion illustration as well as a passion for mental health and wellbeing, she’d like to lead her class by using her creative skills to stimulate senses through music, scents and flow to create the immersive experience that will leave everyone feeling refreshed and relaxed after the class.

Out of her yoga teaching, she enjoys dancing, Pilates and travelling.
