Jordanne started practicing yoga 20 years ago at the age of 17. At that time she lived in London, working as a model. A good friend took her to her first yoga class at one of West London’s new studios…very quickly she was hooked!!
Yoga was a way to keep fit physically and helped with the stresses of work/life etc. It has played largely in her life since then. After having twins and moving back to the Midlands, yoga became more of a way of life, practicing daily, reading the philosophy, changing the way she thought, acted, even the way she ate and the way she felt about life, all for the positive. Therefore she made the decision to to train as a Hatha Yoga Instructor and as a children’s yoga instructor with Yoga Banana’s, so as to teach both adults and children this wonderful science of life.
Jordanne has practiced and studied all sorts of yoga all over the world from Iyengar to Kundalini. In India, practicing and studying Hatha Yoga in it’s purest form and later practicing her favourite, Vinyasa Yoga in Goa. Whilst in India last year she also experienced Ayurveda, yoga’s parallel science first hand, learning how to cook and medicate using only nature. She has practiced Jivamukti in New York, Rocket in London, Dharma in Barcelona and last year in Oslo, she spent an intense week immersed in Bikram Yoga. Then onto Barcelona practicing Ashtanga with incredible teachers passing down the knowledge of Ashtanga’s Pattabhi Jois.
Taking all of this experience Jordanne has created a dynamic style of yoga, using breath to flow from one posture to another therefore practicing in a meditative state, strengthening both the mind and body, followed by deep relaxation. Yoga is a huge passion for Jordanne, this comes through when she is teaching and sharing all she has learned and continues to learn for others to practice and use in their own lives.
Jordanne’s yoga practice is a great way to learn yoga, with challenging core work to build strength, guidance on postures and breathing techniques in a fun and friendly atmosphere. The class gives you a full body workout and boosts flexibility whilst providing you with a chance to wind down and be mindful.’Lindsay Wiggin

We welcome Chris Randall who will be joining us for future workshops and retreats around the country.
Yoga has been important in my life for the last 5 years although I first went to a class about 10 years ago. I find yoga so beneficial to our mental, emotional and physical well-being. Yoga isn’t just about doing a class in a studio but about transferring the practice to every day life – remember there’s 8 limbs to yoga and asana is just one.
I practice Vinyasa Flow, Ashtanga, Broga Yoga and Jivamukti and I also really enjoy a Yin Restorative class – variety is good. I recently visited India undertaking my 200 Yoga Teacher Training qualification in Astanga/Vinyasa Flow Fusion and my 30 hour Yin Yoga Certificate.
Life is for living and my mantra is all about surrendering to the now and JumpThatScooter always.
