Teachers Biographies


Jax Vessey

Even as a teenager attending my first Yoga class I noticed and enjoyed not only the expected physical opening but also an amazing sense of calm and space. After moving around the UK I discovered Yoga again later in life and attended Hatha, Ashtanga Vinyasa and Sivananda classes as often as possible. I was hooked! The effects were even more noticeable in adult life providing me with an increased of energy, focus and contentment, something I want to share with everyone!

I have been teaching in Exeter since 2002 and gained my Teaching Diploma with the British Wheel of Yoga in 2008, studying Physiology, Philosophy and Ancient History with Angela Ashwin over an informative and enjoyable number of years.

My classes encourage a smooth flowing breath to co-ordinate movements and postures which will centre, improve vitality and increase mental clarity. Students will notice the benefits of this practice almost immediately, a direct result of stimulation of the parasympathetic nervous system which reduces the heart rate, lessens muscle tension and brain activity, creating a wonderful sense of peace which is vital in our busy Western lives. Classes offer a range of held and dynamic postures and are suitable for all levels and experience, for those who would like to deepen their practice to those who have never experienced Yoga before. My classes follow the classical teachings of Raja Yoga (Yoga of Kings), where the body is considered the vehicle for our spiritual energy so we always remain within a place of comfort and ease.

I also teach Body Method classes which are a combination of three disciplines; Callanetics, Pilates and Yoga designed to improve posture and core strength, isolating, strengthening then lengthening different muscle groups to help achieve a toned, firm body. These are friendly classes and a perfect introduction to the physical aspect of Yoga and suitable for all abilities and experience, even those who have had no experience of similar disciplines before and a little nervous of starting something new.

The aim is for the student to become the observer finding balance between ease and effort.

Jax is the founder of the Lotus Loft.

Lisa Roberts

'I began practising yoga when i was 17 and couldnt believe how hard it was! My body was quite literally shaking in all the poses and i found it hard to breathe at the same time....however i then over time began to experience a great sense of calm and peace that i never knew existed. The practices of yoga have taught me to listen to my body and ultimately made me a much happier person.

After studying a degree in development i moved to Cornwall and to my good fortune...Anusara teacher Bridget Woods-Kramer opened a yoga studio round the corner from where i worked. I have since enjoyed many years studying with Bridget and other great teachers such as Doug Keller, Sianna Sherman, John Friend, Jayendra Hanley and Jim and Ruthie Bernhart.

I am passionate about what the practices of yoga can offer us all not just physically but emotionally and spiritually in our busy and often frantic lives.

I am an Anusara-Inspired yoga teacher and teach regular classes and workshops here at the Lotus Loft. Anusara Yoga is a practice that integrates detailed alignment principles with heart orientated philosophy. Anusara means “flowing with grace,” “to be in the flow,” “follow your heart.” We are reminded to be open hearted and to look at what ever arises with freshness and freedom.'

Julie Bladon

Julie has been practicing yoga for the past fifteen years and uses yoga to not only develop the physical body but also to remain alert, focused and calm. She is also interested in how yoga and Lomi Lomi can both facilitate change enabling individuals to take positive steps forward in their lives. The practice of Pranayama and Hatha Yoga (the root of all yoga styles) enabled her to discover and develop the sacred link between the Mind, Body and the Breath and she realised how each of these influence a person's well being and life.

She was awarded the title of 'Yoga Shiromani' or the Crown Jewel of Yoga by the Sivananda Yoga and Vedanta Centre, one of the strongest practicing yoga lineages in the world, after completing her Teacher's Training Course in Madurai, India, where she studied classical Hatha Yoga, Pranayama and Vedanta.

She has studied in the UK and at Mette's Institute in Queensland, Australia. Having completed the 'Intensive Hawaiian Lomi Lomi Bodywork and Healing' course plus the 'Advanced Bodywork' course she has studied full body massage; Huna energy balance systems, using the Polynesian energy points of the body; Huna philosophy & meditation for healing and relaxation; pregnancy massage; Polynesian floor work; joint and bone massage.

Julie returned to Mette's Institute in 2012 to complete the 'Rites of Passage' course which focuses on deepening the understanding of the connection between body, mind and spirit. Including deep tissue work and working with the emotional releases which may occur during massages. As part of her continued development Julie has also trained with Papa K, Hawaiian Kupuna (elder), on the Big Island, Hawaii. The training included Lomi Lomi massage, Hawaiian herbal medicine, Breath of Ha (ancient Hawaiian healing system), body reading and adjustments.

Roberta Hutchins

I teach what I call gentle Hatha yoga. My teaching is greatly influenced by my interest in mindfulness practices from Buddhism and practicing a form of Tibetan yoga called Kum Nye. My classes are essentially a form of mindful movement focussing on an awareness of the breath and incorporating hatha yoga postures. I have been teaching yoga since 2011. As well as my regular classes at the Lotus Loft I enjoy teaching a group of young adults with varying disabilities at the West of England School and College for Young People with Little or No Sight.

I began practicing yoga in 1997 and for many years attended a weekly class with a wonderful teacher. I thought at that time that I would like to be a yoga teacher but considered it out of the realms of possibility and decided to study massage and reflexology and then went off to University to study herbal medicine. I have been practicing as a Medical Herbalist since 2004.

My first yoga teacher passed away and I did not attend yoga classes for a couple of years. I began to notice all sorts of old health problems creeping back and decided that yoga was a crucial part of my wellbeing. I returned to my yoga practice and quickly decided that it was the right time in my life to study yoga more deeply. I embarked on the Devon School of Yoga foundation course which inspired me to continue onto their Teacher Training Course. My favourite pastime is furthering my yoga studies by attending workshops and retreats. I am currently taking a detailed online course in Yoga Anatomy with Leslie Kaminoff and have been inspired by attending workshops with Donna Farhi, Debbie Mills and Gretchen Faust.

Isabelle Luterbacher

Iyengar yoga is a practice that has the potential to benefit all those who wish to try it. At the beginning the emphasis is on the physical body, something that is easy to grasp. The physical benefits of yoga are numerous and affect all systems of the body, helping to bring balance where there is imbalance and misalignment. Even those who view yoga as a merely physical practice will benefit enormously at this level. However, the potential of yoga is greater still. As we begin to use the mind to work more skilfully with the body, the mind too receives the benefit of becoming more aware, more sensitive and the beginning of Self-knowledge takes place.

Since completing her Yoga Teacher Training in 2003, Isabelle has trained intensively with Senior Iyengar Teacher Glenn Ceresoli in London, Switzerland, Italy, Norway and Germany and has already completed his Level 1 Iyengar Teacher Training in Australia and Level 2 Teacher Training in India.

Isabelle teaches regular monthly weekend workshops at the Lotus Loft, please visit the workshop page for more information.

Tania Rose Fox

Tania has been practicing Yoga since 1995, trained as a Yoga teacher with the Devon School of Yoga (500hr diploma) and has been teaching since 2012; she has been teaching weekly classes and workshops regularly at the Lotus Loft since 2014. Tania’s interest in Yoga dates back to her teens but she began a self-taught home practice aged 20, back in 1995 whilst studying western philosophy at university. She maintained this traditional Hatha Yoga practice over the next decade, whilst travelling and working all over the world; time spent working in places such as New Mexico and Thailand during this period particularly opened up her interest in eastern philosophies such as Taoism, Buddhism and Zen. In 2005, Tania began studying Yoga with Duncan Hulin; for the next decade, he was her main teacher and she received a thorough, authentic education in Holistic Yoga from him: not just asanas but also kriyas, pranayama, meditation and other practices.

As her self-practice evolved, Tania became drawn to the benefits of the Ashtanga Vinyasa system of Yoga and for a few years, she immersed herself more deeply in it, seeking out American Ashtanga pioneers David Williams and Nancy Gilgoff, as well as Andrea Durant, more locally. At the end of 2015 she travelled to Maui, Hawaii: the plan was a month of intensive disciplined Mysore practice, but instead she found herself gravitating towards a less strict, more feminine, nurturing, freer approach. Exploring the island’s rich yoga culture, she experienced a profound heart-opening and a deeply liberating and healing joyful sense of empowerment in Maui teacher Jennifer Lynn’s excellent Wisdom Flow Yoga style, with its Anusara-flavoured heart-oriented approach to strong vinyasa yoga and safe alignment and a joyful Tantra-based philosophy. Tania’s experiences on Maui affected her profoundly on many levels and continue to deeply inform and inspire her teaching and personal practice.

Back in Devon, Tania offers a range of weekly Holistic Vinyasa Yoga classes, combining mindful awareness of breath and body with flowing dynamic sequences of postures, cultivating a balance of groundedness and strength as a foundation for greater heart-opening. She has not abandoned Ashtanga but found her own gentler, less strict approach which still draws on the benefits of the primary series in particular, whilst creating more feminine “lunar” standing flows. Her teaching is increasingly rooted in a nature-based spirituality with awareness of the Earth’s solar seasons and the lunar cycle. Her wish is to create a relaxed, safe, nurturing space for her students in which they can experience a peaceful, subtle path of healing, transformation and growth, developing greater self-understanding on all levels: physical, mental, emotional, spiritual… Tania encourages her students to balance disciplined practice with a lot of compassion!

She also offers a diverse range of seasonal workshops, ranging from her own holistic approach to Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, to more gentle, nurturing heart-oriented journeys which combine guided meditations, dynamic flowing postures, pranayama and deeply relaxing Yoga Nidras. Cacao (pure unprocessed raw chocolate) often features in these sessions as Tania is also a trained cacao ceremonialist, holding regular sacred ceremonies for women around Devon, including at the Lotus Loft. She also runs regular 6 week Heart Flow Yoga intermediate level yoga courses for women who have previously studied with her. Tania is also a trained Thai Yoga massage therapist.

Nikki Cassap

Nikki discovered her love of yoga in 2001 and has been practising ever since. Her journey started in Ashtanga yoga, then lots of pregnancy and restorative yoga whilst having 4 children and a break from more physically challenging practise. A few years ago she came across Jivamucti Yoga where she discovered a natural love for chanting. Always keeping her practise separate from her work of group exercise and fitness classes she decided to bring the two together in 2009 and so completed a 2 year yoga diploma to take her yoga teaching and practise full-time.

Teaching fitness classes in studios at gyms, Nikki noticed that many participants needed to stretch more and by taking time to stretch properly they would have a greater sense of well-being, so her yoga classes started with the idea to promote a flexible body to athletes and fitness participants. From here practise grew, delving more into the spiritual side of yoga and chanting became a keen focus in her classes.

Nikki now teaches not only physical practise but chanting and breathe work to awaken the whole body’s energy. You can expect her vinyasa flow class to be a strong yet fun, awakening practise, with chanting to cleanse the spirit and asana to inspire positive change.

“Yoga brings balance and calm every time I practise and for the simple love of yoga I teach to inspire this in others”.

Laurie Cunningham

Laurie first discovered yoga 16 years ago initially starting to practice at home to videos for purely physical reasons. As the years went on Laurie felt the mental, physical and spiritual benefits of yoga and the yogic lifestyle has become a massive part of her life. Throughout various periods in her life, practicing yoga has consistently been a grounding and supportive way of being that has enabled her to deal with situations with strength and clarity.

Over the years Laurie has travelled to various countries to practice yoga and most notably India. It was in India that yoga became firmly entrenched into her being and she knew that all of the amazing skills that she was learning she wanted to share with others.

Through the practice of yoga Laurie believes that it is possible to heal oneself and that what you learn on the mat will help you so many ways in your everyday life.

Laurie has completed the 500hr Teacher Training with Devon School of Yoga and is currently studying a Diploma in Cognitive Coaching and Mentoring through The Institute of Counselling.

Having tried various disciplines of yoga one style that has particularly resonated with her is Prana Flow a style founded by world renowned teacher Shiva Rea. Laurie completed a four day intensive Rasa Vinyasa Teacher Training with Shiva in 2014.

Laurie is also a qualified Traditional Indian Head masseur and qualified with the Bristol School of Holistic Therapies.

Tamsin Evans

Tamsin was first introduced to yoga as a child by her mother, a long-time yogi. Her own practice has evolved over the years through the Vini, Ashtanga and Vinyasa traditions. As a dancer, she was initially drawn to the physical element of yoga, and through this began to discover its deeper ability to balance and heal. After yoga helped her through a particularly difficult period in her life she decided to train as a teacher, and qualified in 2012 in Cape Town, South Africa (Yoga Alliance, 200hr, E-RYT).

In 2012 she set up her own small studio in Freetown, Sierra Leone, running classes, 1-1s and retreats, and teaching at trainings and conferences. She further qualified in Pregnancy Yoga, Baby Yoga and Baby Massage, and Yoga for Children with special needs. In 2016, she graduated as a Yoga Therapist (Diploma, Yoga Campus, 350hr+) and is a registered Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council practitioner. Tamsin’s passion for yoga lies in its ability to balance and integrate the body and mind, helping to ease tensions and build physical and emotional flexibility and strength.

She is interested in how yoga can bring us into a deeper and healthier relationship with ourselves. Her teaching style is creative and nurturing, and explores how yoga can support us to witness mindfully where we are on each day, emotionally and physically, and how to work with that with patience, acceptance and kindness.

She is passionate about working with yoga in the field of mental health, addressing conditions such as anxiety, depression, stress and trauma. In Sierra Leone she taught patients and staff at the country’s only psychiatric hospital, and community support groups for those mental health issues and their carers. She co-wrote a self-care manual for the Ministry of Health and Sanitation, Sierra Leone. She also worked as International Advisor and Trainer for Yoga Strength, a community-based yoga organisation which works with disadvantaged communities in Sierra Leone. Their out-reach work involved teaching classes for former child-soldiers, gang members, unemployed youth and slum-communities.

Natasha Gerolimatos

Born and raised in Vancouver, Canada, I first discovered yoga over 10 years ago during a busy semester at University. I was initially drawn to the practice for the physical challenge and the effects it had on my body, but very quickly I discovered a deep sense of peace and calm that I had never experienced before. Throughout the next few years as life got increasingly busy, I found myself practicing yoga on and off, but I would always seem to end up back on my mat - and every time, it felt just like coming home.

I went on to pursue graduate school and a career as a counsellor working in mental health and addictions. Yoga got me through the challenges I would face in my work and my personal life. I couldn't believe the space that was opening up for me, in my body, my mind and my heart. I made the decision to train to be a yoga teacher in a sudden moment of clarity following an inspiring community yoga class, during a difficult time in my life. I absolutely knew in that moment that this was the right path for me and it has turned out to be a life-changing experience.

I made the move to Devon two years ago, and I love that I'm able to continue to pursue my passion for teaching yoga in a new community. Having fully experienced the positive impact of yoga on my own life, I believe in the power of yoga to heal and transform each of us, and it is such an incredible gift to be able to share this practice with others. In my classes, you can expect a strong physical practice, with the focus always on using the breath to achieve a deep level of awareness, inner peace and freedom. My aim is to make the ancient teachings of yoga relevant to our everyday lives. I always encourage students to listen to their bodies and tailor the practice to their own individual needs – you are your best teacher! My belief is that yoga should be a fun, explorative and introspective journey that is accessible to everyone, and my hope is that my passion for this practice shines through in my teaching and inspires other!

Georgia Stuart

I grew up with an Anglo-Indian mother who was the first person to introduce me to some of the basic principles of yoga philosophy. Unsurprisingly, I strongly rebelled against it all as a teenager but gradually these principles began to make more and more sense in my life.

The physical practice of yoga found its way into my life initially as a weight loss tool but it wasn't until an experience of stress and ill health took hold that yoga became the tool I needed to help me find balance, well-being and a sense of calm that I had never experienced before. It was at this point that yoga became a true part of my life.

I am inspired by many types of yoga and yoga practitioners. From the local studios here in Exeter run by amazing and committed yogis to the social media and YouTube teachers. There is so much to learn and so many people with knowledge to share. Within my own practice I love strong styles of physical yoga including Ashtanga Vinyasa and Vinyasa Flow, however I am finding myself drawn to a more holistic approach of teaching with a strong emphasis on meeting the needs of individuals.

I am currently enrolled on the Devon School of Yoga 500hr training course following on from successful completion of their foundation course. I have also studied with Kino MacGregor in Manchester and continue to attend regular classes and workshops in and around the Exeter area.

Andrea Durant

Andrea began her career as a classical dancer progressing through the Royal Ballet School to the Royal Ballet Company aged 18, to Principal Dancer at Scottish Ballet. Having succumbed to career threatening injuries, and having had some success at treatment via acupuncture, Andrea trained as an acupuncturist and a masseuse and began practising yoga regularly. The conclusion to Andrea’s career in dance coincided with dramatic changes in her personal life, so along with physiological therapy she explored psychological therapies, qualifying as a counsellor in 1983.

Based in London, she practised yoga with a number of powerful teachers of various traditions and qualified as a yoga teacher via the BWY in 1992. Andrea cites her main influences as Shandor Ramete (Iyengar), Swami Vedantananda (Satyananda), Guru Dharam (Kundalini), David Swenson and John Scott (Ashtanga Vinyasa), Clive Sheridan (An independent yogi with special awareness), James Seddon (who was a remarkable man and her mentor), Anna Le Gallois (a remarkable woman and faith healer), and Godfrey Devereaux, for whom she taught Ashtanga Yoga at the Life Centre, (now known as Yoga Campus), in London. Andrea was one of the original teachers on their teacher training courses and she currently instructs on the Devon School of Yoga teacher trainings and runs her own Foundation Courses through the BWY.

Andrea has run retreats and workshops throughout the UK and applied yoga as a therapy for children, adults living with HIV, and adults who have been tackling addictions. More recently, alongside her yoga, she has been working on a Masters degree on Mindfulness, at Exeter University and enabling -young adults with learning difficulties to live independently within the community.

Caroline Lucas

Caroline came to yoga from a background of experience and training in Therapeutic Counselling, Life Coaching, Human Givens Therapy, NLP, Emotional Freedom Technique, Hypnotherapy and Quantum Relief. Caroline in this way has been supporting people, from all walks of life, on their own inner journey of self discovery and self development for over ten years. Helping people lighten their load and achieve what they set out to achieve.

It seemed a natural move then to teach and practice Kundalini yoga. What is Kundalini Yoga?
Kundalini Yoga as practiced by Yogi Bhajan is a science of mind and body and is designed to bring you to a state of awareness and experience a higher consciousness.

Kundalini Yoga helps us to shed light on our blocks to growth, our attachments to the past and fear. When practiced, properly and consistently, through specific sets of postures, called kryias, chanting
and vibration of sound called Naad during the meditations and Kriyas helps to strengthen your body and it’s functions such as your nervous system, balancing your glandular system, purifying the body and calming the mind. In a session the combination of the above and breath work, guides the energies of the body and mind to shift and achieve positive change.

Meditations and Kundalini Yoga ~ These can be simple by being aware of your breath and chanting a
mantra, or more elaborate where there is a specific breath, mantra and mudra that work together to balance different aspects of the mind and body. The result of the latter, when done regularly over a period of time can leave you feeling blissed out, with a sense of connection and joy.

Caroline wanted to teach Kundalini Yoga because she loves all the benefits that yoga can offer us all, physically, emotionally and spiritually.

Caroline trained under Lead Professional Teacher Guru Deva Kaur and Teacher Trainer Shivdev kaur in Kundalini Awakening Teacher Training Programme Level one with the Amrit Nam Sarovar School.

Penny Dye

Penny rediscovered yoga a few years ago enjoying the benefits of Hatha Yoga and Vinyasa especially. Her 500 hour Teaching Diploma is with the Devon School of Yoga and the founder
Duncan Hulin.

She experienced Acroyoga for the first time two years ago and fell in love with the practice, intensive training is essential to teach Acroyoga so she enrolled with Acroyoga.Org earlier this year and will gain her full qualification in early 2018.

In the meantime she constantly enriches and develops her practice and teaching by attending various training events across Europe with innovative, highly respected teachers. She co-teaches with Jules Yount who also trained with Acroyoga.Org. Together they teach the balance practice between the Solar, Lunar and Thai massage. Acroyoga had provided her with a supportive community throughout the world and she loves to share this with everyone willing to breathe and trust.

Nycki Owen

I began regular Pilates and Yoga practice in 2001. I had hurt my lower back in a fall three years earlier and suffered with constant pain and occasionally my back would sieze up altogether. I was referred to a physiotherapist who advised I try Pilates to strengthen my core and allow my damaged muscles to heal. Within six months of Pilates training the pain had gone and my back has never seized since. This inspired me to not only continue with my own practice, but to teach others the amazing physical and mental health benefits of Pilates and Yoga.

I now teach Body Method which is a fusion of Pilates, Callanetics and Yoga. I focus on the strengthening and lengthening of the muscles to improve posture and build a strong, fit and
flexible body.

I trained for five years with New Zealand Pilates teacher Vivian Muir on a one to one basis in both Reformer and mat based work and have taken weekly Yoga and Body Method classes with Lotus Loft founder Jax Vessey since 2003. I qualified as a Body Method teacher in January 2015 and completed the British Wheel of Yoga Foundation Course in November 2017.

I believe we can lose the space in our lives to have fun as adults and my classes will give you the opportunity to play and enjoy the freedom of movement in your body. Most importantly, perhaps, it will help you to start the day positively and continue with a big smile on your face!

Friedel Fink

I am Friedel, a certifed Yoga and Meditation Teacher, Cycle Coach and Abdominal Massage Therapist with an arts background. My specific passion lies in movement and empowering people through the means of their own body‘s wisdom using holistic energy medicines.

In the recent years my calling became more and more about guiding women how to develop practices in tune with natural cycles and support themselves through body work, nourishing plant- based food, creative techniques and self care: the tools that helped me feeling connected and peaceful within myself.

Yoga brought me to many places and people: I studied Elemental Hatha Yoga with Sofia Araujo and J. C. Salt, Transformational Yoga with Swami Vidyananda in Tamil Nadu/ India, and a Women‘ s Yoga and Leadership Course in 2017.

I run creativity, cooking and movement workshops for adults, and a menstrual education and empowerment program (A Celebration Day for Girls) for young girls all over Europe: There is a lack of positive female role models for girls and adult women which I am seeking to change. With running nourishing workshop experiences I have the immense joy of inspiring for a positive body image, emotional resilience and a growing self-esteem and therefore freedom of expression. I am inspired to do this work by the girls and many strong women that I had the pleasure to meet in life.
Pleased to meet you!

Andy Kerr from Revolution Massage Therapy

I first became interested in massage and alternative therapies back in the 1990s, following a long period of injuries and having received a number of different treatments. The importance of good body dynamics and energy flow became clear in maintaining posture and reducing the risk of unnecessary damage to the body.

Following university and working and travelling around the world, I lived and raced in Europe as an elite-level cyclist, receiving sports care at the highest level. During periods of injury and towards the end of my career, I began learning from and training with some of the top massage and sports therapists in cycling, eventually applying to to others the techniques I had received myself.

Returning to England, I completed my formal studies at Oxford, and currently hold the highest level of qualification available in the UK in Clinical Sports and Remedial Massage. I now live and work in Devon, running Revolution Massage Therapy based in Exeter. Appointments at The Lotus Loft are available according to the schedule, and please feel free to contact me for any further information.
