About Fiona

About Fiona

I have been teaching yoga to adults and children for 20 years, specialising in Hatha Yoga. I am a qualified British School of Yoga teacher and am also a trained Primary School teacher, gaining a P.G.C.E. from Roehampton Institute in 1995.

I took up yoga in 2000 after my third child was born to try and improve my flexibility and found it dramatically enhanced my health and general well-being. I have been teaching in Devon and Somerset since 2010 and my objective remains the same: I want everyone to leave my classes feeling better than when they came in!

What my students say

‘Fiona is an inspiring yoga teacher. She exudes enthusiasm and gives clear and articulate instructions. Her classes are a mixture of yoga and keeping fit mentally, physically and aerobically. I really look forward to the classes. The other participants are friendly and encouraging, too.’

Pam, Wellington

‘After just one class Fiona identified poor posture practices and suggested exercises to rectify them. As a result I’ve noticed a significant reduction in the lower back pain I’ve struggled with foryears.’

James, Uffculme

‘FionaYoga has really been an enjoyable experience over the past five years. Fiona is a very informed teacher…I would thoroughly recommend giving it a try even if, like me, you had never been to a yoga class before. Age is no barrier.’

Elizabeth, Tiverton

‘As a man I was worried I would feel out of place in a yoga class. Not only have I been made to feel hugely welcome by everyone but my back has got so much better since I started. I look forward to every session now.’

Rupert, Bampton

‘The thing that has surprised me most about Yoga is how physically demanding it is. A complete body work out.’

Robert, Tiverton

I now feel guilty I was so rude about Yoga for so many years! After the second session I could turn my neck to look right rather than having to rotate my entire body. It’s extraordinary that something so hippy and ridiculous actually works!’

James, Exeter

‘I definitely found it helped my flexibility and core strength which is important for my other sports.’

Richard, Tiverton

I have been taking part in Fiona’s yoga since she started in Devon – 8 years ago! It is the best Hatha yoga I have experienced and it has had a very positive impact on my back issues.
