The following teachers are experienced teachers working either privately or for the “Yoga For All” mission.
Founder of Yoga For All, Davinder’s main love is Toffee (her pug) who has kept her going through many life challenges and has been her devotional meditation partner. Wherever you find Davinder alone in Meditation, you will often find Toffee sat comfortably on his meditation cushion right beside her! Yogi Toffee truly is the centre attraction awaiting a time for “Doga” to appeal to more of his fellow breeds.
My love is teaching MedYoga, my own creation of my 20 year study of the Mind, Body & Soul connection. To me, this feels like “coming home”. It’s a true reminder of who you really are beyond the illusions of the physical mind & body. Peace of mind and the experience of the “Self” and “Liberation” of the mind are truly bliss. There is something so magical that exists when we surrender & let go. Letting go & surrendering takes discipline, dedication, practice, practice & more practice. Yet, when it is achieved, even for a second, you will never go back! My longing is to help you EXPERIENCE this for your self, it cannot be forced, strived or longed for, but is a natural enfolding which I believe more & more people are now ready for. It is what changed my world & rescued me.

Testimonial – from Clare Sherriff BA (Hons) PhD
“Davinder’s intense spirituality and her individually devised form of yoga dramatically alters peoples’ lives. Davinder radiates joy – she has the ability to help, and heal, troubled bodies and souls, either through her warmth and energy, or by more targeted means. She was born to teach. Her yoga simply flows, her poses challenge, and her words coach the body to accept and surrender. Her ability to explain the processes of meditation, with its consequential releases and changes is, I believe, unparalleled. Her connectedness to her clients and her circle of followers speaks volumes. I feel specially privileged to have met, and be learning from her.”

The exercises can be done safely and successfully by people with health and physical conditions and certain disabilities.

Traditionally trained as a Hatha Yoga teacher by FRYOG I am continuously developing growing in my yoga path which has taken me to explore and study Yoga Nidra with the Satyananda tradition (Bihar School), currently studying integration mother and Baby yoga with Uma Dinsmore-Tuli.
In my classes I incorporate aspects of traditional yoga; pranayama (breathing), asana (postures) and Yoga Nidra (deep relaxation-Yogic sleep) , classes are soft, heartwarming with a flow that hopefully will inspire you to take the yoga/mat home.

Steve’s classes are an inspiring mix of yoga & his love of “Tai Chi” & “Chi Gong”. His beginners classes are deep enough, engaging students through his own unique style of movement & practise. He guides, nurtures and has a soft & very approachable style. His intermediate classes are fun, energising and will have you peacefully diving into stillness, relaxation and favourite Bob Marley tunes!
Steve was very well known for being “highly” energetic and “enthusiastic” in all areas of his life. Following a busy and stressful career that took it’s toll on the body and mind, Steve followed his intuition & dived straight into an intensive yoga training course.
“I just knew I had to pursue my practice further and deeper!. Tai Chi and Chi Gong have been a life saver, de stressing, calming and healing me from the inside out. Finding Yoga too was life changing as previously I had to rely on Osteopaths for the physical alignment needed. I am very fortunate to have studied yoga deeper and living life by the 8 limbs of Yoga it has deepened my practice and quality of life. Leaving a business behind and becoming a Yoga Teacher has added to my life greatly. There are so many people who’s lives can be enriched from the practice of Yoga , Tai Chi and Chi Gong. Having the opportunity to guide people in their practice is a gift and I feel very blessed to be in this position. I’m very excited about the concept behind “Yoga For All” and making it financially accessible to everyone!”
Also known as “Bear” or “Yogi Bear” as we just LOVE to call him! (Davinder)
