My name is Jane Ashurst and my yoga business is called Radiant Heart Yoga.

I am a fully qualified and insured Prana Flow Yoga Teacher. I have  completed extensive training with the two top yoga associations in the world learning from teachers who have a wealth of experience so that I can  pass that knowledge onto my students.

I offer a range of classes where people who are new to Yoga can begin and every stage along the way for students who wish to deepen their practice. No matter what age group, gender or ability she creates an environment where they feel encouraged to try new things but comfortably within their individual ability.

I teaches more than one style of yoga and  offers private tuition for advanced students, for people who need a more therapeutic style or who are unable to come top one of my classes for any reason.

I now hold a 500 hr BWY Teaching Diploma and a certified 200 hr Prana Flow Teacher with Shiva Rea and I have been lucky enough to study with many inspirational teachers.

  • My personal practice is what keeps me grounded and my life in perspective and I learn so much from that not just about myself and my own body but about the difficulties my students may have and how to best help them. For me its not about standing at the front of the class and being able to do the best pose its being a good teacher so that my students understand why they are doing a pose and how to modify it to suit their body and how to get better at doing it so they receive the maximum benefits. I aim to create a warm, welcoming atmosphere in my classes where everyone, even new people feel very relaxed, safe and comfortable. Some students want the social side, some come to be quiet and have some time for themselves, some to keep fit and others for the more spiritual side so I aim to include something for everyone. I am passionate about teaching because I love bringing together a group of people who share my practice with me and who can then take the benefits of each different practice away with them and begin to integrate those into their everyday lives because that is when the real transformation starts to happen. When people are leaving my class feeling energised, relaxed, more confident happy my job has been done!
