Madeline Diaz Meiners – Founder/Manager

I discovered my passion for Yoga in Argentina, while running a dance and percussion school in Buenos Aires. Having developed my skills through personal practice, and learning first-hand the benefits of Yoga physically, spiritually and mentally, I discovered this was my true vocation. I returned back to the UK to embark on a three year intensive 500hr YTTC teacher training course at The Mandala Yoga Ashram. I trained in the practice and philosophy of Satyananda Style Yoga, including Asana (poses), Pranayama (breathing), Meditation, and Yoga Nidra. I teach a wide range of styles from the traditional Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa Flow, to Mother and Baby and Pregnancy Yoga and even Yoga in Chairs. I really believe that Yoga can benefit everybody and it’s about finding the right style for you!

Mind and Body Yoga was established in 2014, and as my experience grew, so did my classes and student base. In March 2016 I opened Mind and Body Hot Yoga in Adlington, and sought the help of local teachers to assist with the studios ever increasing popularity and demand. In March 2017 we opened our neighbouring studio in Preston, Tribe Hot Yoga.

Laura Barrett

Laura completed her 200hr YTTC in Ashtanga Vinyasa in India, after falling in love with yoga in her second life. Knowing that yoga was about more than the asana, Laura allowed the ancient studies of yoga to become her daily focus. Her training was rich and devoted to exploring the Eight Limbs of Yoga which Laura has beautifully captured in her teaching.

Yoga Alliance certified, Laura teaches from the heart and provides a nurturing space for students of all abilities to connect with their own practice. With a particular love for teaching in the heat, Laura is inspired by dynamic flows that challenge the physical and mental layers of the self, creating a moving meditation whilst establishing inner strength and peace.

Sarah Finlay

Sarah was encouraged onto the yoga path by her mother…they always know best right?? After many years of resisting “boring” yoga, a series of unfortunate events resulted in Sarah taking her first few awkward, wobbly and self-conscious steps onto the mat…quickly discovering that yoga was neither boring nor easy but was in fact the little bit of magic she needed.

From the first Savasana she was hooked and soon set her sights on getting to India, where she completed her teacher training. Inspired by her teachers and mentors, Sarah’s classes are full of heart and humility and designed to help each individual create change wherever needed; physically, mentally, emotionally, and energetically.

Laura Perry

Laura found yoga, and herself, through the internet! She was self-taught for her first few years, before she decided to push her physical and spiritual journey by attending a class. Yoga has since become the main focus and love of her life, and she completed her 200hr YTTC in Ashtanga Vinyasa in India. Laura is interested in a wide range of styles of yoga, with a focus on Vinyasa Flow, and believes that yoga is right for everybody, no matter what their ability or experience.

She is inspired by freedom of movement and exploring and pushing the limitations of mind and body.

Donatella Heyworth

Originally a dancer who performed in many professional shows in the north west of England, Donatella followed her heart and moved to LA (California) in 2012. This is where she first stepped into a Hot Power Yoga class and fell in love with the practice! She completed her 200hr Hot Power Yoga teacher training in 2013 and her 200hr Hot Yoga in 2015.

Since then she has been teaching both privately and at LA’s number 1 yoga studio: Hot 8 Yoga at their Beverly Hills and Santa Monica locations. Now back in the north-west of England, Donatella is looking forward to guiding you through your practice in a safe, fun and empowering class.
