Our Teachers & Staff

Our teaching family is small, and we like it that way! It means we can get to know you and support your practice on a friendlier and more personal level. We love hearing how we can craft classes that serve you better so come and have a chat with us. We often host other guest teachers at the Barn too.

Ashley MacDonald

Ashley’s yoga practice has been evolving for more than 20 years. She’s explored a confetti of styles over the decades, and is passionate about all forms of movement. Her training has ranged from Restorative and Pregnancy Yoga to a more specialised focus on Trauma Sensitive Yoga with the Centre for Trauma and Embodiment at the Justice Resource Institute.

Georgie Barnes

Georgie has practised yoga for over 14 years after initially seeking something to ease persistent back pain, and it absolutely worked! She was hooked on the physical ease a regular yoga practice gave her along with both the buzz and calm she felt from each class.

Melanie Thompson

Melanie has been practising Pilates for over twenty years. Although she started postnatally, her practice has continued to support her through post-run niggles and lower back pain. She loves how Pilates can be tailored to suit anybody and gets great satisfaction from seeing people improve in fitness and strength and being able to alleviate pain and discomfort.

Jo Baker - Admin Assistant

With a variety of local authority administrative experience, Jo helps out with things like bookings, scheduling and communications. However, the part she most enjoys is getting stuck into the more creative side of things – grabbing a coffee and sitting down to design social media posts or class branding is a much appreciated creative outlet!
