Hello and a warm welcome to our YPW Studio website.
I have been teaching Yoga classes to children and adults locally for a number of years. In that time I have worked in many and varied locations taking my students, teaching and equipment yoga mats, blankets, blocks and belts along. As founder of YPW studio I am thrilled to have finally found a home, a place where we can build a ‘Sangha’, a community and settle in, teach Yoga, Pilates, Wellbeing Classes, Workshops and Courses and grow from there. 
I have been lucky to have some wonderful supportive inspiring teachers over the years that I have practiced Yoga with. For me, the main inspiration is my students. I hope that you will come to YPW and try a class and or a workshop. 
Your feedback is welcome, please let me or any of the other teachers know what you would like to see on the timetable at YPW, we will be updating the timetable regularly to reflect this, in the meantime if you have any further questions or would like to enquire about hiring YPW studio for workshops, please contact me at ypwstudio@hotmail.com
We hope to see you soon at YPW Studio.

I have been teaching yoga  in Manchester since 2001, and in that time have continuously  worked hard to make yoga accessible to hard to reach groups.In the yoga studios I was involved in setting up it was always my intention to create  welcoming ,affordable classes as  everyone deserves the chance to find peace and well being regardless of their financial status. 

I have been involved in working with vulnerable young women, homeless men, women in recovery, adults with additional needs and currently teach within the prison system.

I teach therapeutic yoga which is informed by years of training with inspirational and knowledgable teachers and for the last 11 years my teaching and practice has been deeply influenced by my studies with my teachers the Mohan family (svastha.net) completing Yoga therapy training with Dr Ganesh Mohan and continuing my studies of the Yoga Sutras with AG and Indra Mohan.

I am delighted to be able to support YPW and look forward to helping the residents of Radcliffe support their own well being with the very practical tools that yoga can offer.

My classes are mindful and uplifting and all are welcome.

Jane is available for 1-2-1 sessions at the YPW Studio Therapeutic Yoga Clinic, please email the studio for more information.

Gill Kennedy

Pilates Instructor

Qualified as a fitness instructor 25 years ago 
Taught a variety of classes freelance and at leisure centres in the Bury and surrounding areas, including aerobics, circuit training, body pump and aqua aerobics. 
As time moved on so did my choice of classes, still with a passion for fitness and healthy nutrition,I started to become more aware of strengthening and stretching the body and how important technique, flexibility and alignment are for posture. With good posture and alignment we can exercise without injuries.
This is when I developed a passion for Pilates. 
Alignment, Breathing  & Centering are the fundamentals of a class and along with technique and the resistance of our own bodies great things can be achieved.
By adding the use of  bands, blocks, balls and light hand weights a full top to toe workout can be carried out in a session for all levels of fitness and abilities.
Having recently qualified In level 3 PILATES and Nutrition, This is what I aim to bring to The YPW Studio. 
By exercising regularly and eating a healthy well balanced diet not only keeps our bodies in tip top condition but keeps our minds healthy and with the stresses and strains of our everyday lives our mental wellbeing is paramount!

Look forward to seeing you all on the MAT 🧘‍♀️😊

Lynne Boardman

Yoga Nidra Teacher

BWY Diploma Teacher

I have been practicing yoga for 30 years and been teaching for 10 years. I gained my BWY diploma under the guidance of Rosemary Bennett /Swami Premanada @ Liverpool Hope University in 2010 

Learning from an early age ( my dad was a yogi back in the 70’s when western yoga had just arrived! Always a forward thinker he went on to inspire me with this wonderful magical practice of yoga from my early years. 

I then picked up my yoga practice again in my early 20’s as most people do as a way to keep fit, but it soon developed into an absolute necessity for overcoming the stress of daily living and I then realised it was something I could never be without. 

Over the years I have studied with a wide range of teachers, styles and traditions of yoga including traditional Hatha Yoga, Iyengar, Kundalini and Tibetan yoga. Each teacher along my path have strongly influenced me in some way, my journey still teaches me that If you embrace yoga into your life the learning never ceases and the desire to learn grows more each day. 

My style of teaching is a disciplined yet flowing style which blends precision in alignment with my love of movement, and the power of meditation, mantra and pranayama. 

"You cannot control what happens to you, but you can control your attitude toward what happens to you, and in that, you will be mastering change rather than allowing it to master you."

I passionately believe in the benefits of a yogic lifestyle and endeavour to make my classes light hearted and inclusive.

Ann dunn

Pregnancy Yoga Teacher

I have been practicing yoga for five years and I have been working as a midwife for almost 20.

I came to yoga relatively late in life and often wish I had started earlier. I have felt strengthened and nourished – physically and mentally - by the practice of yoga and I am excited about the opportunity to share this with others. 

It occurred to me early on in my own practice that the benefits of yoga for pregnant women, especially those facing difficulties in life, could be endless. I was keen to find a way of combining my growing passion for yoga with my role as a Specialist Mental Health Midwife. To this end I completed the Yogacampus Pregnancy Yoga Teacher Training 2018 and I am delighted to now have the opportunity to offer Pregnancy Yoga in the heart of Radcliffe. 

I believe that pregnancy is a time of great change, challenge and possibility. It can also be a time of great stress and anxiety and it is here that Yoga can really come into play. I hope my classes will help pregnant women discover the joys of this and enable them to strengthen the body and calm the mind in preparation for birth and beyond.

"I was blessed with a Gran who embraced yoga and encouraged me to explore yoga with her from an early age - including asana practice and meditation. She embodied what it was to have yoga in her life - she was a beautiful person, full of kindness, peace and laughter (with a healthy dash of cheekiness). I honour my Gran, and my two beautiful sons, with my yoga practice.

I would like to share with others that which I have received through a regular yoga practice: space, mindfulness, strength, peace, and something to fall back on when the world gets a bit much sometimes."
