Raquelle Gracie - Founder and RYT Yoga Teacher
Jodie Merrick - Founder and RYT Yoga Teacher
Raquelle came to yoga from a career in the music industry. She was in the semi finals of the X-Factor in 2007 and although she was already a student of yoga, she was very set on continuing a path in music. After living in LA for two years and two record deals later, she began to realise that her heart and passion no longer lay in the fame driven music industry and the one constant that had been in her life through many trying times was yoga. She decided to come back to Europe to get her teaching qualification and pursue a career in the world of yoga and helping others to lighten their load, like yoga helped her to. Raquelle trained with Vidya Jacqueline Heisel, founder of Frog Lotus Yoga at the Suryalila retreat in Andalucia. She obtained her 200 hours RYT in Vinyassa Flow and is currently training to achieve her 500 hours. She was also featured every month of 2013 in "Yoga and Health' magazine for teaching and demonstrating sequences, and also in an article about the unique move from music to yoga.
Jodie is passionate about spreading the magic of yoga. Her Vinyasa Flow style classes are free-spirited, challenging and restorative all at once. With a decade of teaching yoga and a fierce dedication to her own practice and self development. This has lead her to study internationally with inspiring teachers including: Seane Corn, Kathryn Budig, Tiffany Cruikshanks, Shiva Rea, Elena Voyce and Claire Missingham. Jodie has developed her own vibe. She shares her knowledge and experience in powerful, safe, fun and intelligent sequences which are supported by a wealth of anatomy knowledge, breath work, intention setting and a deep belief that as we release the tension in our bodies we unravel the stories of our souls.
