Erika Bhatti

Pilates

“I am a busy mum of two and live with my family in Crawley. I have been practicing Pilates for over 15 years and in 2016 qualified as a Level 3 Mat Pilates Instructor. In June 2017 I became a qualified POP Pilates instructor. I am currently in the process of doing further advanced Pilates instructor courses with Body Control Pilates in London in order to achieve a Level 4 Pilates Instructor qualification which is the highest level of achievement in Pilates qualifications in the UK.

My background in clinical massage and knowledge of the human body is reflected in my Pilates classes. I teach clients the main principles of Pilates and correct techniques of individual exercises, tailoring the exercises specifically to clients’ needs at the time of the class and also gently help to correct clients into safe exercise techniques. 

I am a fully insured member of REPs (Register of Exercise Professionals) and holder of an up to date Emergency First Aid at Work certificate. As well as teaching private and corporate clients and Pilates classes at Jungle Healing Studio, I also teach classes at the Hawth Theatre, LOOSEYoga, Acorns gym and POP Pilates classes at Bridgeham Clinic.”

Lauren: Founder of Malli Yoga

Yoga Flow

“I have been practising yoga for the past 9 years. A few years ago I trained in India as a multi style teacher because I believe yoga is for everyone and should be accessible. I extended my knowledge by training in pregnancy and postnatal yoga as I want to create a safe space for women when they are going through the most magical but challenging time.

My classes are a hybrid of traditional techniques, which are usually lost in the western world, alongside modern yoga styles. That being said my classes are a fun combination of asana (poses), breathing, movement to music and relaxation.

I look forward to you joining me on the mat.”

Kasia

My name is Kasia and I am an accredited practitioner of The Journey Method developed by Brandon Bays over 20 years ago. I suffered from depression for over 10 years which had started with post-natal depression and caused an ongoing struggle with parenting, relationship and finding a meaning in life. The Journey Therapy enabled me to clear the root causes of my condition and become completely present, in touch with my emotions and my true-self.

Today I am completely depression free and live a concious life, connected deeply with who I am and to the world around me. With the help of The Journey I acquired tools to release painful emotions, connect with my inner guidance, intuition and develop healthy reactions to people and situations. I found freedom, peace and happiness which reflected on my emotional and physical health, as well as self-actualisation and mental clarity.

I am offering one to one Journey sessions either though Skype (worldwide) or in person (I’m located in Horsham, West Sussex, UK). I am one of just three in the world Polish speaking Journey Practitioners and I can offer sessions both in Polish and English.

I specialise in depression and anxiety, parenting issues, relationship issues, spiritual awakening, self-actualisation, self worth and self confidence issues. I can also work with kids with simultaneous parent therapy.
