I have a gentle, encouraging, thorough approach in all my classes and try and bring a little humour to my practice - life is too short to be serious! I hope that students will be able to open up and allow themselves to fully embrace their time with me.
My aim is always that we honour our bodies and that we work on feeling good before we look good! I always ask that everyone works to their own pace, pausing and resting when needed. I work around your needs, strengthes and weaknesses and we can create a practice that benefits everyone! I offer both modifications and options to go further, so that every class is accessible to both beginners and intermediate students, with equal focus on strength and flexibility! Embracing that everybody and every BODY is different, and no two people will practice exactly the same way :)
I love learning from you all as much as I love teaching, and I hope to meet you on the mat, or in the air, soon!
I am a 200+ hour Yoga Alliance registered teacher, specialising in Aerial Yoga, as well as other Circus and Aerial arts - including Pole, Silks and Aerial Hoop! I am also available to teach pilates, vinyasa, yoga basics, chair yoga, restorative, Yin and pre and postnatal. I have been practicing Aerial and Yoga in tandem, for almost 15 years, and would love nothing more than to help others find the joy and passion I have for these beautiful movement art forms!

"I started Yoga with Samantha on the 28th of March. A few weeks into lockdown. I literally did not miss one day of classes for 5 months. It has been an amazing journey of discovery and partnership. I felt that I was being given this amazing opportunity and I could not let myself, or this super dedicated teacher down.
I was a classically trained dancer, so I recognised in Sam's classes a rigorous approach in how we work all aspects of the body. It has been a gift and I will always be grateful for all the evenings Sam generously spared in order to help us develop. From the bottom of my heart, thanks Sam!!!"
Frances, Zoom Yoga
"Sam's thoughtful and easy to follow teaching style allows everyone to be included. I had dabbled with Yoga on and off before joining Sam's classes but now I look forward to my regular practice. I have improved strength, flexibility, can run longer and faster, with no injuries! Yoga is such a good cross training exercise. What has been great for me is that Sams enjoyable classes have taught me to value relaxation as much as physical activity, and I learning to get my whole life more balanced. Thank you Sam!"
Christine, Zoom Yoga
"Samanthas online Yoga classes via Zoom have become an essential part of my day. Her relaxing, positive voice, her humour and individual advice picks us up wherever we are, inspires our growth and keeps us sane during lockdown, on our path of self-care, self-acceptance and reaching new individual goals. She offers advice to different levels, each challenge making us happy and confident in our own achievements. We train flexibility, balance, strength (particularly core), back pain relief and relief for tense body parts and teaches us to enjoy the feeling and movement within our own body. I'm deeply thankful to Samantha, for offering me a path to my own super powers."
Jennifer, Zoom Yoga
“Sam is an incredible teacher who pays attention to each individual student . I couldn’t believe how quickly I picked up tricks on the Aerial Silks, but it was all thanks to my patient teacher Sam. Thank you my teacher!”
Jackie - Aerial Silks, Aerial Conditioning
I love practicing Yoga with you, you are amazing. I visualise what I can't do and love watching you demonstrate the postures beautifully! You are so clear in your instructions which makes it easy to follow and I am so in tune with you!
Jean, Zoom Yoga
