Amanda Riley Yoga
Amanda Riley

I like to draw upon the different styles I have practiced on my Yoga journey so my classes are always imaginative, varied, dynamic and energetic with a focus on alignment, strength building and moving with the breath.
I teach yoga to everyone; athletes, pregnant ladies, rehabilitation, beginners and more advanced yogis. I adapt the class to suit the group or individual and their personal goals.
My teaching style is clear and informative but also fun and my classes are informal so students feel at ease and feel confident to explore their ability. I hope that my passion and dedication comes across to my students so they can also feel the incredible benefits of Yoga

Libby Pinkess
Growing up with a love of sport, from gymnastics, five a side football and horse riding, I discovered yoga complimented my eclectic range of physical actives. Not only did yoga improve my body’s strength and flexibility but also had the same effect on my mind!
After practicing many styles of yoga over the last 20 years and finding each one brought new experiences (including helping me through pregnancy) I finally decided to train to be a teacher under the instruction of Conrad Paul, the yoga therapist and founder of Yoga Professionals.
My love of yoga has grown over the years as my knowledge has increased and my classes reflect that whatever your age or level of fitness, yoga can benefit everyone and have further continued my training in Sports Yoga with Sarah Ramsden, Yoga teacher to many Premiership Football Clubs

Angela Dobric

Angela (aka Mrs. Dobric) has extensive experience of working with children and young people. Most recently, she was Deputy Head at Loreto Prep School, where she shared her love of yoga, meditation and mindfulness with children and staff. Before that, she witnessed the positive impact yoga had on the mental health of young offenders whilst working as a Solicitor in the Scottish Criminal Justice System. Her ongoing love of yoga really developed through her personal experience of pregnancy yoga and sharing yoga with her own children when they were younger. She ran baby massage, toddler yoga and yoga clubs in schools throughout Trafford before dedicating herself full time to classroom teaching. She is now certified to teach yoga to both children and adults and enjoys focusing on developing the mind-body connection through conscious movement, focused breathwork and deep relaxation. Her many years of experience have led to the creation of Genius Yoga, offering yoga for children (Flexi Genius), adults (Yogi Genius), face yoga (Facial Genius) and breathwork (SOMA Genius). She is thrilled and excited to be joining the Inhale Yoga family as she embarks on this new adventure!

Chloe Shaw
I am a qualified Children’s and Teen’s Yoga Teacher and Nutritional Therapist. As a Mum myself, I feel passionate about seeking to improve the mental and physical well-being of our next generations. I completed my diploma in Nutritional Therapy from the College of Naturopathic Medicine in 2020. I then went on to complete my 95-hour yoga teacher training with Yogabeez in 2021.

I started practicing yoga regularly in 2012 and soon discovered not only the benefits to my body but also my mind. I am passionate about sharing with young people the benefits I have discovered throughout my own journey so far, to empower them to live the best versions of themselves. My teaching seeks to provide a variety of tools that are accessible, fun and engaging, enabling young people to learn what works for themselves in order to feel balanced. I enjoy bringing music into my classes and use this as we move through breathing exercises, postures and importantly, relaxation!

Eraldo Lesko

Eraldo has been teaching Pilates and group exercise in general for the last 13 years. He has completed 3 different Pilates qualification in 3  countries with BASI being his main influence.

In 2016 he  won the “Rookie of the year” award for his step performance in the Netherlands. His passion for the human body has also led him to become a Sports therapist, a tutor for the education company HFE and a fitness presenter, introducing new concepts in events such as the IFS.

His love for dance makes him a fan of classical Pilates, which is faster paced and more dynamic in nature. Despite that fact however, his classes are more attuned to the general public, focusing on slow, fully controlled movements, combining elements of classical and modern variations of Pilates. He hates the moto “No pain no gain” and is a big believer in transformation through baby steps. You will always find an option that suits you in his classes, as well as one that challenges you.

Lucie Platt
Lucie Platt
I am a 200 hour Independent Yoga Network certified yoga teacher who trained with Studio One Yoga in the North West. I started my yoga journey and first realised my passion over 20 years ago thanks to my wonderful Mum. Since then I have practised many styles of yoga although mainly Hatha, Iyengar & Vinyasa Flow.

My love and understanding of yoga grew deeper and deeper over time which led me to embark on my teacher training with the inspiring Michelle Almond & Maxine Geary.

Over the years I have continued to attend regular workshops and courses with teachers that include, TaylorHarkness, Lesley Kaminoff & Mackenzie Miller.

In 2018 completed my Yin Yoga Teacher Training with Norman Blair which included an in-depth essay – Making a shift towards a more yin focused life. Most recently in September 2021 I successfully completed my Menopause Yoga Teacher Training with Petra Coveney.

My style of yoga is Hatha Flow a fusion of Hatha, Vinyasa Flow and Iyengar yoga focusing on strength, alignment & you. Postures are held in-between flow sequences giving the body time to ensure correct alignment. This builds strength within the body and also gives fluidity to the movement by using the breath.

My classes are fun & vibrant with a relaxed and chilled vibe. Come join my tribe – Inclusive to everybody.

Samantha is a 200hrs Yoga Teacher,. She completed her training in India and her last visit which was an experience she will never forget. She started with Ashtanga yoga back in her home town in the south 10 years ago but truly found a passion for it then when she went to India for the first time just before covid. This was the start of her love affair with yoga and since then she’s not stopped exploring or learning. Looking back, having the extra time at home in lockdown to concentrate on herself and her yoga feels like a blessing; She found her skills growing stronger every day and her sense of self blossomed.

Samantha did her yoga training in both Hatha and Ashtanga but wanted bring a new style of yoga to the area through Ashtanga classes. Either as a discipline on its own – where the structured sequence of breath-to-movement can nourish your body and benefit your wellbeing – or in parallel with other forms of yoga – where the you’ll see improvements across your flexibility, breathing and mindfulness – there’s a space in your yoga practice for Ashtanga for sure!

Samantha has a deep passion for helping others to learn and is looking forward to embracing the shared journey you will go on together. She always loves meeting new people. So no matter your skill level, let’s enjoy ourselves and do some yoga together.

Vicki Shields
Studying both Ashtanga Vinyasa and Hatha Yoga has given me a deep insight into how to move beyond the limitations of mind and body. I encourage all students to start with their breath, which is linked to the mind and therefore our thinking. Structural alignment helps build the outer alignment whilst our breath connects us within.
I aim to make yoga fun and accessible to all with safe modifications to suit all bodies! I’m Senior Yoga Teacher with over 1000 hours of YA Trainings, in Asana, Advanced Anatomy & Advanced Pranayama. A dedicated Yoga practice since the late 90’s has transformed both my life from University Lecturer/Designer to Yoga teacher in 2006 as I observed its significant effects on my creative ability and levels of stress. I am one of the few westerners to be a direct student of Sri OP Tiwari, one of the few remaining Yogic Masters and sources on authentic teachings of the science and philosophy of Hatha Yoga and Pranayama in the world today and I have spent over 13 years studying with Paul Dallaghan, assisting him on his world renowned teacher trainings at Samahita Retreat in Thailand.
