Our Team Of Wild And Wonderful Teachers!
Elsa Donovan - Yo-Chi Teen Yoga
I combine my working life by teaching Yo-Chi (teen yoga), Club Morgan (yoga, thai-chi, drama and relaxation), performing and organising parties and events.
I have a great passion for seeing children’s confidence and skills increase through practicing the arts, and I believe in children being able to express their creativity in a relaxed and happy environment.
As well as teaching and performing I enjoy tailoring parties for children and adults, making it an exciting and personal experience.
I completed a BA Drama, Media and Film degree from King Alfred’s at The University of Winchester in 2001, and have worked extensively in the arts with a mix of touring productions, theatre in education and teaching drama to various ages.
I spent many years with The Phoenix Theatre Company in Bordon, and have since enjoyed acting and directing in various productions.
Laura Wills - Seasonal Yoga
I am an Actress, trained Mindfulness and Yoga Teacher and Co-founder of an accredited yoga and drama based programme Club Morgan, which is now a national programme in schools and was shortlisted for the Richard Branson Voom awards.
My acting training gave me the ability to carve a unique pathway in my career combining my two passions - Seasonal Yoga and Performing Arts. After graduating I toured in various theatre productions and also set up my own successful theatre company which specialised in social issues. It was at this time I experienced the power of making a difference through theatre.
From a young age I have practiced yoga and meditation and had a fascination with the mind - body connection and as a young adult often found myself looking for ways I could explore my own personal and spiritual development. This desire was partly a result of my upbringing but also out of my own intense struggles with anxiety during my early adult life - while I could perform on stage in front of hundreds of possible I could often
find myself feeling anxious on the tube or in the car. Having found the tools to heal myself through yoga and mindfulness, I now provide these solutions around wellbeing to hundreds of children and adults.
Carly Gloak - Mother and baby yoga
I am Carly and I qualified as a pregnancy teacher with YogaBellies.
After attending YogaBellies classes in my local area, before and during my first pregnancy, I realised it was not just a yoga class but so much more. I wanted to be able to give other women the same experience, support and “me” time that I had received from attending the classes.
I now teach yoga classes for women through all stages of their lives.
Maria Anderson - Hatha Yoga
I fell in love with Yoga the moment I did my first class some 25 years ago. I very well remember my first class in the local village hall with a few dimly lit desk lamps in the corners.
I started reading all about yoga and attending courses and workshops to deepen my knowledge.
Later on I was lucky to find an amazing teacher trainer how over 10 years thought me everything about Yoga and couched me through my Yoga Diploma, Anatomy and Shiatsu massage courses.
I did my children's Teacher Training with Yoga Bananas and Teen Teacher Training with The Teen Yoga Foundation.
Fully DBS checked.
I also have a diploma in Meditation and qualified Reiki 2 and Reiki drum healer.
My other passion is Shamanism (a 1 year Shamanic practitioner training completed) where we deepen our connection to Mother Nature and the greater Universe.
To me, Yoga is what brings it all together, it teaches us Oneness, a Union where everything is connected through a Universal Energy. An energy that, if we are still and listen, will guide us on our journey through life.
