Social Media Manager
Natalie (Little Bamboo Yoga) discovered the practice of yoga, meditation and the art of primal movement through her curious mind which lead her to the heart of Bali, Indonesia where she was initiated into the practice after ten years of study and exploration. Her curiosity to this new sense of freedom awakened her to the power of the mind and body which continuously inspires her to continue celebrating and teaching this beautiful sacred practice. Natalie believes that there isn’t a certain way yoga should look and her emphasis is on the sensations and the inner sanctuary. In her yoga classes she invites you to unearth each part of yourself, honouring every body type and walk of life, making this a perfect class for all levels. Natalie believes authentic expression is the key to navigating through obstacles and the beauty that life offers us, transmuting each layer of ourselves and learning to love all of it by tapping into these ancient practices.
From being both a student and teacher of this art form Natalie has unearthed an abundance of mental tools and core values that you can utilise both on and off of your yoga mat.

DJ, Sacred Musician
David has spent his life observing & studying the patterns of nature. Having spent 2 1/2 years in the deep nature of Croatia constructing a yoga centre, he often found himself in solitude whilst cultivating a permaculture garden at the site. His awareness was truly absorbed into the nature & a deep Yoga practice.
David feels connected to the Druid pagan ways through his ancestry & now integrates their practices into healing through song & shamanic drum. He has an honours degree in ecology which enabled him to hone in on my passions of nature, health & permaculture.
A strong pull to conserve nature lead me down the path of helping people heal themselves & because of this his shamanic practice has branched into other traditions & he now work with Kambo.
He sings traditional songs learned directly from the Matses tribe in Peru & the Huni Kuin in Brazil in his ceremonies.
He has played guitar for a long time & now also drums & flutes.
He likes to integrate music from many traditions & styles into an ecosystem that works together to help people journey in to themselves.
David DJ's ecstatic dance sets with this same philosophy & is known on the Manchester scene as WZRDRY. He also produces various kinds of Music electronically under the same name.

Yoga Teacher, DJ
' We live in a multiplicity of worlds... some clouded by novelty, indecisiveness, selfishness, and illusion.
And some full of devotion, love, truth, and adventure.
We have choice with how we want to spend our precious moments here.
I choose the path of love, and I hope to assist others on a similar path within themselves.
May I be useful in this life to shedding light in the darkest places and help people gain the strength to take back the power in their lives.
We all need a helping hand at times, so here is mine. '
