Louise James

Hi! I'm Louise James - Tilly to my friends!

Quite simply, I am passionate about helping everyone find the key to unlocking their full potential through physical awareness and believe that unravelling our postural habits can have a transformative effect on how we feel about ourselves, the world and our place in it.

I have more than 30 years’ experience as a Chartered Physiotherapist specialising in musculoskeletal conditions with experience in Acupuncture, Women’s Health and Clinical Pilates. I have also trained in Arvigo Therapy (abdominal massage), the Buteyko Technique, EFT and Matrix Re-imprinting.

I’m incredibly thankful to have found my way to Yoga - and remind myself that I don’t do regrets when I complain “what took me so long?!”

It seems as if everything I have ever done has been leading me to this point. I gave up working as a Physio in 2014 to concentrate on launching the Buttafly as a seat and prop for Yoga, the concept for which came to me in meditation. Showing itself to be a powerful tool for realignment of the spine, the Buttafly is taking me back to my roots as a Physio and keen advocate of Women’s Health issues.

Rachel Fleming

Rachel went to India in 2009 to study within the Sivananda tradition of classical Hatha Yoga and Vedanta. After a short spell of teaching she undertook further studies with Uma Dinsmore-Tuli in Pregnancy Yoga, Women's Yoga, Well Woman Yoga Therapy and Yoga Nidra. During this time she fell pregnant and subsequently birthed twin boys in 2011. To keep herself sane during early motherhood she sang....a lot. It was the only spiritual practice that didn't require the use of hands (ideal if you have twins). Rachel has most recently completed training with Jo Manuel and the Special Yoga Foundation teaching kids Yoga and Mindfulness.

Her teaching is joyful and heart centred and draws deeply from the feminine, the Divine and the humorous. She leads women's yoga and sacred singing circles, general Hatha classes, kids yoga, meditation and yoga Nidra workshops. Her one to one sessions blend Yoga, reiki and crystal healing.

She lives in Bristol with her two boys and her husband Andy.

Sundari (Miranda Falconer)

Sundari Miranda Falconer’s connection with body wellness and healing began as a young girl, with her interest in movement and dance. In 1999, after studying a Performance Arts Degree, a mental health crisis and a transformative trip to India turned her love of movement into a yoga practice. She started teaching in 2004, after attending her first Teacher Training; a daily 3-month Chakra & Hatha Yoga Program in Thailand, with the Pyramid Yoga School.

In 2007, she completed a 700-hour apprenticeship program with the late internationally acclaimed Yoga Therapist, Mukunda Stiles (who gave Sundari her name) and graduated as a Structural Yoga Therapist. Her case study, under Mukunda’s guidance, focused on the ‘General Pelvic Area’, which birthed her fascination and interest in specializing in this area. It was during this training that she met her colleague Uma Dinsmore-Tuli, whom, in 2009, during Sundari’s first pregnancy, she went on to assist for and trained in her Pregnancy Yoga Training. Sundari’s commitment to Women’s Health gained her a certification as a ‘Well Woman / Womb Yoga Therapist’ and to this day she continues to offer a session on the ‘Well Woman Training Program’ about the importance of stabilizing the Sacroiliac Area.

In 2013, she completed the NHS accredited ‘Yoga for Health Lower Backs’ training.

Her own pregnancies, births and post-natal recovery from her two sons has fed her passion and professional interest in post-partum health. She has studied many forms of yoga and Buddhist meditation, settling now for a gentle, yet strengthening, flowing meditative form of Hatha yoga.

She lives in Somerset, with her family and cat, and where she teaches her regular and Pregnancy Yoga weekly classes and offers One-to-One Yoga Therapy / Well Women Sessions.
