Yoga festival instructors

Charlotte Peers

charlotte-219x300 Summer yoga festivalCharlotte grew up in Australia and her first occupation was as a school teacher. She started yoga in 2011, encouraged by her husband who was keen to try a different form of exercise. She really enjoyed the challenge of combining body, mind and breath in movement and very quickly began to see and feel the physical and mental benefits. Quickly hooked on the classes, she completed her teacher training in 2013. Charlotte now regularly teaches hot and unheated yoga classes for gyms and yoga studios across Hertfordshire. She ran the Sweaty Betty Fit Club and has taught for Champneys Spa Hotel in Tring. She also teaches the senior students at St Albans High School for Girls. Her classes are accessible and fun.


Sophie Free

After some time spent as a “yoga tourist”, teaching hundreds of classes in several different types of yoga in studios all across the world, Sophie found herself drawn to the more dynamic style of yoga. Her passion now is in designing creative flowing yoga sequences with attention to alignment and making the class accessible to anyone and everyone who walks through the door.

Sarah K-Hirji

Sarah-248 Summer yoga festivalA popular teacher on the Sweat timetable, Sarah’s been teaching yoga for a number of years for Sweat and other studios. A US National living in Milton Keynes, Sarah was first attracted to yoga as she strived for a healthier lifestyle. It didn’t take long until she was hooked and she completed her yoga teacher training in Florida in 2012. She later married, relocated to the UK and had a baby girl. Flow yoga is Sarah’s passion but she also has a much softer side that she lets shine during her more nurturing classes. Whatever the class, Sarah doesn’t take the yoga too seriously, so you can be assured of a fun approach.
