Meet Esther

Esther loves teaching more dynamic styles like Hatha or Vinyasa Flow, focusing on strength, stability and fitness, along with slower practices such as Yin yoga and Meditation that allow you to drop in and get to know yourself better.

As an avid student Esther is continually evolving her practice through further training and study. Esther is always open to questioning previous teaching methods (including her own) and challenging herself, integrating new learning and insights into her classes.


Esther's Favourite Props

Esther's pick of Yogamatters props for her morning practice.

“Throughout my life, practising yoga taught me to relax, how to find a way out of worries and stress. Yoga showed me the joys of being fit and strong. Yoga taught me to self-reflect and to accept life as it comes…finally, yoga and my clarity work showed me that there was nothing to ‘find’ and that everything I was looking for is ‘right here, right now.’ And all I could ever do was to let go of the bondage that stopped me from experiencing the truth. I will always be very grateful to the path of yoga, the Clarity process and the miracle that life is.”
