I’m Jayne Brown, a Yoga and Pilates Teacher.

I’ve been practising and teaching Yoga and Pilates for over 10 years.  I am a 500 hours Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance, I completed my 200 hour teacher training here in the UK, I then completed my 300 hour advanced training in the most spiritual place in the world, and the birthplace of Yoga, Rishikesh in India. I teach Hatha, Vinyasa, Yin Yoga and Meditation and Mindfulness to people who want to discover more balance and harmony in their life. I am a classically trained Pilates instructor, of which I honour and teach the classical Mat Pilates method, with a contemporary twist.

Yoga and Pilates are my absolute passion, over the last decade of personal experience, self-enquiry and hours upon hours of training I have come to value and understand the importance of looking after your health and well-being. I feel and fully appreciate how both practices have improved my inner strength and being calm has helped me to live a happy and healthy life.

This is why I became a teacher!!! I want people to experience the benefits this holistic approach can bring to your life and how movement is your best medicine. The aim of my teaching is to guide and help people to feel better both on and off the mat, to have more awareness of the mind and body connection, and to show people that anyone can do Yoga and/or Pilates, working at a level that is challenging, yet comfortable and safe for you!

My classes are designed to give you an enjoyable experience, you don’t need to be super bendy or be able to stand on your head (unless you want to of course). I want my students to feel at ease and have fun!!  I teach with warmth, humour and compassion, I want you to feel you belong in my class and to trust the process, with time and practice, you will feel the connection between the mind and body and trust me, you will feel and see a positive shift in your habits and lifestyle.

When I’m not busy teaching or practising Yoga and Pilates classes in various gyms, my head is in a book doing lots of self-studying on these practices or doing another Yoga/Pilates course. Every year I go on 2 or 3 Yoga retreats for self-development, and to discover more about Yoga. I am also a qualified Personal Trainer of which I have a number of clients and teach a variety of other Fitness classes. This all round knowledge and experience is shared in my classes to support and help you to become stronger, improve your flexibility and mobility, improve balance, reduce stress and decrease the risk of injuries. Join me in a class and become the best version of yourself!!

What is the difference between Yoga and Pilates?

You would not be alone in asking this question. There are some similarities between Yoga and Pilates, however, they are also very different.

Something they both share in common is Yoga and Pilates target muscle groups that you won’t access in many other forms of exercise.

What is Yoga?

Unite Yoga and Pilates Yoga Class

Yoga has been around for thousands of years. It originated in India and is a practice that connects mind, body and spirit through movement.

Yoga’s foundations are more spiritual, with the original aim to move energy around the body to allow students to sit and meditate comfortably for long periods of time after practice.

Here in the west we have embraced the movement aspect of yoga as our primary interest, referred to as postures, poses or asanas.

On a physical level, the postures are designed to lengthen, strengthen, align the body and improve flexibility.

Ultimately aiming to keep the body balanced and healthy.

Your body exists in the past and your mind exists in the future, in yoga, they come together in the present

B.K.S Lyengar 

What is Pilates?

Unite Yoga and Pilates Yoga Class

The similarities between the two come from the fact that Joseph Pilates used many elements of yoga when he created his exercise regime Contrology, now known as Pilates.

Joseph Pilates was a sickly child who strongly believed that movement was medicine. He studied various Eastern and Western forms of movement to become stronger and healthier.

He used a piece of equipment called The Reformer, Reformer classes are available, however, mat Pilates is more accessible to the majority of people.

The Pilates method focuses on the ‘powerhouse’ not just the core but all the stabilising muscles of the spine to improve postural alignment. The premise is that a balanced body allows for optimal movement, energy flow and wellbeing.

Developing minor muscles naturally helps to strengthen major muscles

What is Yogalates?

Yogalates is a mixture of Yoga and Pilates, first introduced in 1977, it is a type of exercise inspired to harness the physical and mental benefits of both practices. It is often thought as a fusion practice of “East meets West” It merges the ancient practice of Yoga with the Western practice of Pilates. It combines the yogic focus on enhanced mind and body awareness, strength, stamina, flexibility and balance, with Pilates techniques to improve posture and create a strong, stable foundation for movement.


  • Classes are suitable for all ages and levels of experience for both men and women.

  • Yoga and Pilates are a barefoot practice (you can wear socks or purchase yoga/Pilates socks for extra floor grip)
