I never teach my pupils, I only attempt to provide the conditions in which they can learn
I went to Costa Rica in 2012 to complete my 200 hr yoga teacher training with Frog Lotus and on my return a Pregnancy yoga course in Fulham, London. Moving on into my 3 year Qi Gong teacher training with Eva and Karel Koskuba, teaching both Yoga And Qi Gong at our studio in Henley and on retreats in Spain giving me a foundation for my personal style to develop.
I took my Yin Yoga teacher training in 2014 and advanced Yin Yoga Teacher Training the year after with Norman Blaire in London. Yin Yoga has been the perfect catalyst, connecting Traditional Yoga and Qi Gong.
After 3 years intensive training in Chen Style Tai Chi and then another 3 years Tai Chi Teacher training I am passionate about Tai Chi and am really excited to be teaching at the studio and in The Henley area.
Also in 2020 I started another intensive anatomy training course with Gary Carter. This is ongoing and will continue into 2022 with more hands on work now coming out of lockdown.
Carlin and I have had the existing Henley Yoga Studio in Friday Street since 2015 now and gives us and our students the perfect environment to teach, practice and grow. The Studio is a perfect platform to teach classes, run workshops and we are able to invite teachers from around the globe to join us.
Throughout the summer months, my girlfriend Jo and I, currently run retreats in Spain and the U.K. This offers students and ourselves a gateway to a deeper experience.
Hi, my name is Carlin Clarke; I’m a mother of three and a grandmother of five.
In 1981 I started training to become a yoga teacher. That opened a door for me to study and become a sports and psychology teacher, lecturing and teaching at schools and colleges, bringing yoga into all of my sports coaching.
In 1995 l studied to become a registered sports massage therapist, working with people to overcome injury, illness and improve posture alignment, which continues today. Ten years ago l started teaching yoga in health clubs and spas always working to improve my knowledge in connection with the mind and physical body. In 2005 I studied Monty Roberts the great Horse whisper, this time of study felt like a gift and strengthened my belief that I could bring this way of being (in the real moment of time) to my fellow humans. In 2007 l trained with Anthony Robbins a world leading life coach and public speaker, this changed my life and l was on my journey of a thousand miles finding the balance to life. On that journey I enrolled on the 200 hr. teacher training yoga course in 2011 with Vidya Heisel Frog lotus in Bali, then assisted on her 200 hr. course in Costa Rica and Spain in 2014.
Jo is the founder of Get On Your Mat, a yoga teacher & passionate wellness promotor also offering Kinesiology, diet & nutrition advice and remedial massage.

Having previously worked in the travel industry, recruitment & event management, Jo is all too familiar with the stress and pressure that corporate life and being desk bound can put us under and the immense relief that a yoga practice can bring not just physically, but mentally and emotionally too.
Jo has a regular weekly teaching schedule in Berkshire & Oxfordshire which includes Yoga classes, working 121 with clients, corporate classes, holistic coaching sessions and also hosts UK & Overseas yoga and wellness retreats.
Sarah Louise Craig
Sarah first discovered yoga while studying at University initially as a way to improve her fitness, support her long-distance running and horse riding. As well as challenging her body and helping her feel more connected to it, she found the emotional and mental connections most beneficial. It was a great way to relax her mind and provided a sense of grounding when her life was starting to considerably change and become more stressful.
Sarah later moved to London to pursue a career in sales. While Sarah loved the buzz of city life, her yoga practice became an essential tool to help bring a sense of calm and balance. In 2017, she completed her 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training with The Power Yoga Company, London (Yoga Alliance). Since her first training, Sarah has continued to explore and deepen her yoga practice through visiting an Ashram in India and attending retreats abroad. In 2019, she completed a 90 hour Advanced Anatomy & Yin training with Yoga in The Big Smoke, London (Yoga Alliance), and in 2022, she completed a 50 hour Pregnancy Yoga Training with Lulu Winfield (YA UK). Sarah wants to share how yoga has truly changed her life for the better, allowing her to find balance, health and mindfulness in our busy modern world.
Sarah teaches Vinyasa Flow based on traditional Ashtanga postures, Pregnancy Yoga and Yin Yoga which is based on Chinese Medicine. Her classes are physically challenging, while also mentally stimulating through guided breath control and meditation. Sarah wants her students to have fun, experiment and leave feeling more calm, uplifted and mindful.
