Nell is quite simply the best yoga teacher I have ever had the privilege of knowing in my more than 25 years of yoga practice. She has an exceptionally outgoing and bubbly personality, which inspires and motivates while at the same time she allows one the necessary space to develop and grow one's practice from the inside out. Flavella Fielding
Nell converted me to yoga 16 years ago. I was a highly sceptical Physiotherapist who had spent a significant proportion of my clinical practice helping patients with injuries sustained during yoga!
Nell makes her classes fun and dynamic. She is very hands-on, making frequent adjustments and modifying postures as necessary for the yogis present. She teaches a wide variety of abilities and ages and regularly attends professional development workshops. She is so warm and welcoming and has a huge following as a result.
All her classes end with final relaxation, with a lavender eye bag, soothing music and inspiring text. Anne Morley Fletcher
The details matter! Nell knows how to keep you progressing day after day without pressure. Keep focusing on the details whithout compromising the enjoyment of the class. Very subtle! Nell is not only skilled but also very professional, classes are always very well prepared. Enjoy! Laurent Useldinger
The holidays are fantastic, but it is Nell's teaching that makes it so special - even when teaching 16 people she seems to be able to give everyone individual attention without loosing the flow of the lesson. She blends concentration with humour and spirituality. Andrew Wright
You’re a great teacher, a perfect balance of humour, irreverence and instruction. Ali Wrighton
Thank you SO much for a wonderful retreat in Spain, so relaxing, invigorating and uplifting. You are a fantastic teacher and we all really appreciate how much work you put into making each class different, challenging and fun. Teresa Lane
I would not go anywhere else for yoga instruction, she is quite simply the best! Christian Rogers
