Dorit fell in love with Nia at her very first class in Cape Town while visiting family. It was a ‘coming home’ to her body and even though at that point, she had no intention of teaching Nia, after six months back in London, she felt compelled to train as there were no classes or teachers in London. Dorit became a Nia teacher in 2005 and it changed her life. She is so happy to have found this joyful sensory-based movement practice that support herself and others in living connected to their body

Nicky Frewin

Nicky Frewin

Nicky Frewin attended her first yoga class whilst working as a dancer in Lisbon, Portugal – learning that not being able to understand nor speak a word of Portuguese was not an essential criteria for her first yoga experience! Years later, and after many a yoga class at The Yoga Hall, Nicky and her family discovered Big Dog Little Dog and they all completely fell in love with it. After attending many workshops, Nicky decided to train to teach this yoga herself, to spread this family yoga joy to many other local families. Nicky also finds yoga often sneaks into her other work as a Creative Dance Teacher!
