Here at Grace and Gravity, we’ve put together a team of friendly and approachable teachers who really know their stuff. Our team is experienced, energetic and eager to help you reach your health and wellbeing goals. They can’t wait to start working with you.

Grace and Gravity was founded by Yasmin and Janine, two friends with a shared goal of taking over the world. Well, maybe that’s a little over-ambitious. But really, these two did share a goal of offering great health and wellbeing to the wider community.

Our co-founders want to help others thrive by nurturing body and mind with all kinds of fun fitness. This is the motivation behind Grace and Gravity Studio. Yasmin and Janine hope that every student leaves their session feeling accomplished, relaxed and refreshed.

The pair share responsibilities. Yasmin covers all things front of house and Janine works behind the scenes to ensure the studio runs smoothly.

Meet the team

After decades of pursuing different sports and different types of physical movement, Suze was still searching for something that would offer her balance of body and mind.


One of Karen’s favourite places to be is on her yoga mat, or in her garden, or better still, on her yoga mat in her garden.


Holly has been dedicated to her yoga and meditation practice for over 8 years, experiencing various styles of yoga and being inspired by many teachers along the way.


Esther loves helping others find a love for yoga. She has been practicing yoga for over 15 years, originally practicing Ashtanga, then vinyasa and gradually found a more somatic movement informed practice.

After discovering yoga whilst in her forties, Ellie was soon hooked and realised that a regular practice was essential to keep not only her body fit and strong, but her mind balanced and calm as she found herself transitioning through the menopause.
