David first practiced yoga in the late 1970’s. When the family moved to the Banbury area in the middle nineties I started attending regular yoga classes first locally then in Oxford.

I had three car accidents in quick succession; after the second one I ended up on a Back Rehabilitation course at the Nuffield Hospital in Oxford.  I was so impressed with this that I decided to do something for people with bad backs.  After investigating the options I decided that teaching yoga would equip me to achieve this aim.  I then enrolled for one of the British of Wheel Diploma courses and trained with Derek Thorne who is based in Wells – qualifying in 2005.

I have a special interest in the back and have attended a number of specialist CPD events.

Chantal started attending yoga lessons some thirty years ago, always felt that her practice helped her achieve physical and mental well being.  As the years went by, she wanted to learn more about the transformative power of yoga and this led her to train as a British Wheel of Yoga teacher –  she runs classes at Middleton Cheney and at a school.  She works with postures, breath, meditation and relaxation to promote a sense of peace and calm in her lessons.  She has a strong interest in alignment and breath work and likes to design individualised sequences of postures to suit her classes.

Her class starts are running again following the appointment of a new caretaker at the school.
