Gina Hayes

What can people expect ?

I teach flowing hatha-fusion yoga classes that will leave you toned, revitalised with a spring in your step.

I draw on multiple yogic disciplines and Chinese Five Element theory.

Classes combine breath, alignment and energy work in creative sequences to free cluttered minds and bodies and bring them into the here and now.

Whether the class theme is ‘Bliss’ or ‘Declutter’ expect to smile, laugh and playfully explore until your re-discover your edges. Re-connect to find the best version of yourself in these challenging and ever changing times.

    Gina's History

    I started practicing Yoga after fracturing my spine. It completely healed my back and rewrote a debilitating chapter of my life. From there Yoga gave me so much more: a spring in my step, a glow, a depth, a resilience and an inner strength so strong I felt I could deal with whatever life may throw at me. I wanted to share all of this so I became a Yoga teacher.

    I’ve taught in London Yoga studios ‘One life’ and ‘Home’. I moved to Devon 11 years ago and have been mainly teaching at The Forge Yoga Centre in Totnes and for Riverford organic farmers.  I have my own little studio too, and call my teaching ‘Yoga Sunshine’.

    "I have studied yoga throughout my life and experienced most yoga forms and various yoga teachers...I can honestly say Gina has taken my practise both physically, mentally and spritually to a completely different level. I don't just look forward to her Monday morning class I depend on it to keep me sane for the rest of the week. I am strong. I have grown inwardly outwardly and we always ...always manage to have a laugh. "

    After Gina’s classes I feel like the best version of myself. She has a wat of bringing out the best in you through the practice whether you’re a total beginner or very experienced. I highly recommend her classes.
