Fiona is an excellent yoga teacher. She has a magical knack of making an hour feel like a few minutes. You can just tell her heart is fully immersed in her practice and that makes it such a pleasure to be one of her students. Fiona gives thought to everything; warming up with both the breath and body, appreciation of the importance of checking in with her class. She guides but also gives time for silence, which I think is critical to getting into the flow. She is totally present and makes every class interesting; bringing her knowledge and wisdom together to provide a session where you feel like you've worked out your body and calmed your mind. She is also a wonderfully positive person and really down to earth. We love you Fiona. Thank you.

As an electrical engineer, I didn't believe in the Yoga benefits. After a lot of push, I started Wednesday mornings Yoga sessions with Fiona at UoN. After that, my life totally changed; I am less stressed, my everyday posture improved along with my flexibility and balance. I do not think I would have survived PhD without Yoga with Fiona! She is just amazing, full of kindness, positiveness and inspiration. Since she was able to 'transform' me, a totally rigid, stressed-out person with not a single believe in yoga benefits, she can help everyone!

Fiona's classes give the body and mind a great boost. Very welcome first thing on a cold Wednesday.

"I absolutely love Fi's yoga classes! Started going to her Tuesday session at Kinetic at the start of the summer, and have been almost every week since. Had never tried hatha style before, but found that I really liked it. Fiona's teaching style means that you never feel left behind; she gives alterations of poses for different levels, and encourages you to push yourself with new moves. Over the past few months I've gained so much confidence by going to her classes, and I'll really miss them while I'm away at uni!"

"All inclusive yoga which is fun and relaxing at the same time! After every class of Fiona’s I feel completely recharged, refreshed and generally happier. She genuinely cares about her students and it is clearly evident how much work she puts in behind the scenes to provide amazing classes. I can’t recommend enough!"

"Fi is a great yoga teacher! Starting as a complete beginner she's helped me gain confidence and have fun with it, as well improve my posture, and get some much needed chill time."

"Fi is an amazing yoga teacher. Her vibrant personality and passion for yoga shines through in all her classes. Fi makes yoga accessible for everyone no matter what level they're at. Each class has an awesome relaxation talk-down at the end leaving you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. Keep doing what you do Fi!"

"I’ve never been to a hot yoga class before, and only been to a couple of regular yoga classes, but Fi definitely made this my best yoga experience by far. She added her own personality to the class, which allowed me to feel relaxed and not self conscious despite being a beginner. She encourages others and doesn’t push people too hard, but supports you to do the moves you feel comfortable with in a non-judgmental way. I would definitely attend a class run by Fi again and would recommend to anyone interested in taking up yoga."

"I run and compete in races, i am heavily into my training running 7 days a week in the peak of my season, so its so important i take the time to recover wherever i can. Hotpod Yoga has made an incredible difference and is really helping me to keep strong, flexible, relaxed and most of all injury free. I long for my Wednesday Hotpod Yoga with Fi, i turn up feeling very tight and tired but by the end of the hour session i feel like a new me, it stretches me out and makes me feel revitalised. Fi is an amazing instructor and so passionate, she always varies the sessions and adds her own personal touches, she is very calming and inviting and allows you to get the most out of the session. I am so happy to have Hotpod Yoga as part of my training plan as it continues to have a positive impact in my running and racing. Thanks Fi, i love your sessions, it is really evident in your sessions that you love your job and i would recommend you to everybody and anybody."

"The word 'excellent' doesn't do justice to Fiona as a yoga instructor
She is such a positive, encouraging and calming influence on both my practise and on my week !
Prior to attending her sessions I had never done yoga and didn't see myself as someone who would be very good.
But her kind nature, dedication to the sessions and professional advice has led me to become a complete yoga convert !!
I can't thank or recommend her enough !!"
~ Hannah Curran

"I always leave Fiona's classes feeling a calmer, happier and a with a better understanding of my body and how it moves. Fiona makes me feel, and everyone else, very relaxed and comfortable to take risks - set - off by some lovely background music. These classes are a wonderful experience and I feel like I go o a journey each time. You never get the impression this is a lesson - time flies! x"
