Charlotte Nixon – Yoga & Barre

Charlotte was first introduced to yoga, age 10, by her gran, but it was only after years as a dancer, that she fully rediscovered it when recovering from a knee injury. She was instantly drawn to the meditative element and the healing power of yoga – on both a physical and emotional level – and once it was part of her life, she knew that she and yoga would not be separated again.

She trained with Yogahaven in Morocco and qualified with her 200 hours accredited by Yoga Alliance UK in 2012. Alongside her passion for yoga, Charlotte loves to travel and has practised all over the globe. Charlotte’s classes and sessions beautifully mix the spirituality and roots of yoga, a vinyasa flow sequence, and a cool, upbeat playlist to keep the prana flowing.

Love going to Tom’s bootcamp class on a Tuesday morning! Always a mix of exercises and routines made fun and enjoyable. Tom is a great motivator and my fitness has improved greatly since attending his classes.


I love coming to boot camp on a Saturday it’s a great way to start the weekend! Tom really mixes up the exercises every week and pushes the group to their highest potential.
