Ana Dias


Ana, originally from Portugal, moved to London to further her training in contemporary dance at Trinity Laban Conservatoire.
Taking good care of her body was a big part of Ana's routine. However, her first 'true' encounter with yoga was in 2012 while working as a professional dancer. It was a key component to Ana's rehabilitation after sustaining a knee injury and so, after that, she continued her practice alongside her work as a dancer.
Finding numerous benefits in the practice - from the most obvious such as strength and flexibility to more concentration and better dealing with frustrations and stress of the daily life of a freelancer - Ana felt compelled to share these breakthroughs with others around her. She then finally took the plunge and went training in Ashtanga Vinyasa and Rocket with The Yoga People in London.
Ana believes yoga has something to offer everyone. Her classes focus on building full body awareness, strength and developing a more supple body. The class stems from continuous movement deeply connected with the breath making the practice a moving meditation.
Ana is currently delivering Rocket/Dynamic Yoga, Mandala Vinyasa and Yin Yoga classes across London

Her interest in how the body moves is largely influenced by her work in dance, whereas the breathing, asana and esoteric elements stem from her education in Yoga and its rich history of ideas and styles.

Kate Lister


Kate’s exploration of yoga began aged 14, when she found a book of middle-aged women with 70s hair, shiny leotards and very bendy bodies in her grandma’s house. Weirdly, this attracted her. Luckily, she soon found out there was much more to yoga.

With a practice background in Ashtanga yoga, training in Vinyasa Flow, and an aversion to taking life too seriously, Kate shares playful, dynamic, breath-led sequencing with a focus on mindful alignment. She aims to enable students to find a personal practice in each class, so that they may cultivate their own yoga and experience the many ways in which the practice expands all areas of our human life.

Kate is also a professional singer and, having found yoga so supportive of this area of her life, now creates yoga programmes for musicians and performers specifically. She loves to use music in class, and has been known to bust out a tune mid-asana. Song requests welcome!
