Olympic Athlete and Yoga Teacher Leon Taylor

Allie Hill

Course Director / Founder

“And though she be but little, she is fierce” - A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Shakespeare

Allie Hill is the founder of yogahaven and the director of our Teacher Training course, an 800hr RYT teacher with studies in Bikram and Jivamukti Yoga styles as well as being a yoga hero to over 500 trained yoga teachers across the globe. Though she is a petite-sized person, her heart and ambition are super-sized.

Allie began teaching full-time in 2001 and has since taught thousands upon thousands of students, including Premier League football clubs Aston Villa and Tottenham Hotspur. Yoga is the perfect balance for any lifestyle or athletic discipline, as Allie herself knows - she loves adventures, snowboarding, has run both the London and Berlin marathons as well as participating in Triathlons. Putting all that energy to good use, Allie took on Mount Kilimanjaro and raised £3,500 for charity. Allie is also proudly a brand Ambassador for athletic apparel company lululemon athletica.

The first yogahaven studio was opened in Brighton in 2003. In just over a decade an amazing family of six Hot Yoga studios across the UK grew with a wonderful, vibrant yoga community surrounding it due to Allie’s down to earth, fun and encouraging nature.

In 2014, yogahaven became Carbon Neutral - a massive undertaking with six studios but an ethical project dear to Allie’s heart. As an environmental and spiritual activist, financially supporting sustainable energy projects around the world felt like the perfect way to stay true to her yogi roots as well as helping raise awareness of vegetarianism and environmental issues through yoga and special community events and fundraisers.

Her list of personal teaching accreditations is impressive, knowing that the best teachers continue to be students themselves. Originally training in Bikram, Allie has since trained in Jivamukti Yoga and other styles along the way , She is a certified Ante-natal teacher and has completed a foundation course in Yoga Therapy with the Bio-medical Trust in London.

Allie will be present for the first week on each training and on the final weekend module of the 200hr yogahaven Teacher Training.

Krystal Nash

Course Director / Founder

Krystal fell in love with yoga from the first class she went to as a teenager. This love took her to India to learn more, but instead of yoga she found herself studying Ayurveda in Kerala. With a passion for complimentary medicine and plants, Krystal came home and study Western Herbal Medicine at University in London.

A few years later, her close friend (Allie!) didn't need to do much to convince her to join the yogahaven teacher training in Morocco and from there, they went on to open yogahaven in London together.

Krystal has an appreciation of all yoga and has gone on to do teacher trainings in Pregnancy yoga and Ashtanga.

Carla Turner

Course Instructor

Carla’s in her seventh year of teaching yoga in studios, homes, offices, retreat centres and online. She first trained with yogahaven and is now facilitating on these same 200hr trainings as a teacher to teacher trainees. She feels very privileged to have stepped into this role and very much enjoys it.

As well as the yogahaven course she has completed an 18 month 300hr Advanced Teacher Training, She is a qualified pregnancy yoga teacher after studying.

Generally speaking - the classes that Carla teaches are strong, steady and mindful in style. She is interested in exploring the somatic felt experience and how muscles and bones work most effectively to keep us safe and functioning.

Carla has a background in professional acting and grew up loving all things performance and dance. She meandered into teaching and has been very happy in doing so. Her passion is to create space on teacher training for students to feel, connect and believe.

Amy McDonald

Course Instructor

A London based teacher originally from NZ, Amy is passionate about yoga and how it has the ability to touch and transform lives.

Having always been a fitness junkie, her yoga journey began with Bikram in 2005 and has led to an ever-evolving practice. Previously working in the Design Industry in Interior Architecture, she saw the benefits of her yoga practice on her incredibly stressful and fast paced lifestyle which led her to pursue teaching to be able to share this with others.

With over 1000 hours of training under her belt having first trained with Yogahaven London and has since trained with the Jivamukti School New York/London. She has great gratitude for all her teachers and students and believes that we can find the guru or teacher within everyone we encounter.

Amy’s teaching focuses on alignment and breath, attuning the practice in such a way that the students are in a space to balance body, mind and soul, while becoming holistically stronger and increasing flexibility. She aims to create a place where students on teacher training feel inspired and empowered.
