About Us

1-2-1 Urban Hot Yoga is presented to you by Danny Ellis founder of 1-2-1 Urban Fitness, Romford.

1-2-1 Urban hot yoga has been a dream of Danny’s for many years, but has struggled to find the right venue and the right person to bring a new found energy and give Hot yoga the funky twist that he envisioned. Along came Dean Boswell with over 20 years yoga experience and a genuine respect for the art of Yoga and its history.

Danny’s idea of a hot yoga studio that blends chilled and funky music to the traditional yoga movements is one that Dean fell in love with. Dean will be the face of 1-2-1 Urban Hot Yoga and will be bringing his experience and infectious character. He has a renowned reputation for his unique, traditional yoga sessions.

Dean will be working along side a group of experienced teachers which will bring their own individual styles. This will give you at 1-2-1 many choices.

To create 1-2-1 Urban Hot Yoga, it has taken great vision, a belief and a little courage for us to break free from some traditional ties of Yoga. We are taking Hot Yoga into the future, enabling us all to grow and change as nothing in life stays the same.

To practice Hot Yoga all you need to do is be yourself. Yoga has never been about how far you can bend, it is more honest than that, in fact, Yoga is about how you feel and not how it looks. So therefore, to benefit from Hot Yoga please bring yourself, please be yourself and most importantly, enjoy the 1-2-1 Urban Hot Yoga experience. We are always here to assist you on your Hot Yoga journey.

Suzi Power

Suzi has been a full time yoga teacher since March 2014. Since completing her initial 200hr certification with The Himalayan Yoga Institute in 2013, her thirst for more knowledge has propelled her towards a further 236 hours of formal training in Reformer Pilates, Pre-Natal Yoga, Yin and Rocket.  

Soaking up a range of styles and taking inspiration from many different teachers over the years, has resulted in a wealth of knowledge and teaching techniques to reach everyone from the novice to the most experienced of practitioners.  She loves nothing more than spreading the amazing benefits of this discipline to others and igniting a fire and passion in her students for all things yoga

 

Shanel Nolan

I started my yoga journey a little over 3 years ago. I was looking for something to help stretch out my muscles as I also run a lot. I attended my first yoga class and have never looked back, yoga has now become a part of my everyday life; both physically and spiritually.

I’ve since completed a 200hr Anusara immersion & teacher training course at London’s Triyoga with Bridget Woods Kramer. I am now registered and recognised by Yoga Alliance professionals.

I like to incorporate relevant themes into my classes and focus on the breath with movement. I like to flow with grace and open the heart to life’s endless possibilities. I think the mind is just as important as the body therefore I like to bring attention and stillness to the mind in my classes too. Move the body and still the mind.

Hannah

Hannah trained as an Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Teacher with Yoga London. She offers intuitive, dynamic and invigorating practices to enhance well being, both physically and mentally. 

She first got into yoga with her mum as a teenager. She came back to it after years of long distance running, Hannah found it helped stretch out her muscles and reduce injuries. She soon became hooked on the added benefits of calmness, space and balance.

Hannah is a firm believer that yoga brings a deep sense of well being into both the body and mind –  and that this translates into our everyday lives. She is on a mission to make yoga accessible to enable as many people as possible to reap its benefits. 

Hannah is currently training as a Yin Yoga Teacher to complement and add grounding to her yang-style vinyasa classes.

Anna Granger

I am an Inferno Hot Pilates instructor. Inferno Hot Pilates is slightly different from traditional Pilates. It offers a high intensity, low impact, full body workout using Pilates based principles. It is designed to strengthen muscles, increase flexibility, and improve overall health. It creates long, lean muscle mass, burns fat and increases fitness levels. It creates a stronger core, improves circulation and increases flexibility. It is low impact therefore protects joints and muscles.

Inferno Hot Pilates complements hot yoga styles. It is also great fun and gets results. My hope is that you enjoy the class, give it 100% and see the benefits it brings you.

I have had a passion for yoga and have practised for many years. I am currently completing the yoga teacher training course at the studio in order to share my passion with others and to spread the love of yoga and Inferno Hot Pilates.

“Never wait for a perfect moment, just take a moment and make it perfect.”

 

Abigail Clayton

I have been practicing yoga for over 7 years. I fell in love with the practice from the very beginning and took my first teacher training in early 2013. From my initial training I have been to various workshops and retreats around the world experimenting with different teaching styles. I found my hearts calling of a practice of flow and connection. 

In my classes I love to combine creative sequencing whilst encouraging my students to tune in to their own practice. Adding a spirit of playfulness and a huge dose of inspiration helps you to tune out of the noise and into the body, thus deepening your practice.
 
I seek to help others thrive in their lives by nurturing and nourishing the mind, body and soul through yoga. My hope is that when you step off the mat you feel refreshed, supported and balanced.

My yoga journey started in 2003 which left me wanting to explore yoga more. Since then I have completed a British Wheel of Yoga Diploma as well as attending various workshops such as Yoga for Children, Yoga for People Living with Cancer. I come from a Fitness Instructor background, therefore my teaching of Hatha yoga is from a strong stance incorporated with a Vinyasa element. I have been teaching Yoga for 10 years.

I like to encompass a fun element to all classes incorporating a mixture of yin and yang. The beauty of yoga is that there is always so much more to learn.

Teaching is my passion, watching students explore and grow in their practice is pure joy.

TOGS

I started my yoga practice about 4 years ago. It allowed me to reconnect and reach higher consciousness levels and have a completely different outlook on life. Through exploring what yoga has to offer, I decided to spread my guidance to others, so that they can experience the power to be themselves – work on self acceptance and be comfortable in their journey, as well as heal and strengthen the body, mind and soul experience.

My main practice is Ashtanga Vinyasa & Yin Yoga. My sessions will consist of using movement with breath to flow through poses, building awareness and strength in Ashtanga Vinyasa and learning to go inwards and let go, by holding poses for an extended period of time in a relaxed body and mind state with Yin yoga.

I very much look forward to guiding you on your yoga journey!

I has trained in contemporary dance and as an aerial rope artist. Practising yoga for the past 5 years, I have been teaching power yoga for the past year and a half, in both London and across Europe. My yoga class has grown with an emphasis on the physicality and anatomy of yoga asana.  Strengthening, releasing and opening the body, whilst pulling the practisers mind fully and wholely into the present moment to join with their bodies through the use of the breath.

I discovered yoga 7 years ago trying to find a way to heal myself naturally from several injuries. My personal experience was the very best proof that yoga is a powerful tool when you want to affect both body and mind in a positive way.

One of the best lessons that i got in the way of yoga is that the only thing I have is the fortune of inner world. What we build within ourselves is the only thing we truly have and can share with others around us.

My attention was captivated by the realigning and healing power of yoga as a method of restoring balance back to the  body, mind and most importantly life. 

The emphasis on self reflection, self reliance, presence and awareness coupled with the philosophy and integration of the mind, body and spirit for optimum health and holistic living sparked her love relationship with Yoga. 

My teaching incorporates the powerful sequencing of the Ashtanga Vinyasa and Rocket Yoga discipline, along with the gentle restorative features of Yin Yoga.

Katie McPherson

I’ve been passionate about yoga for over 10 years and travelled to India 5 years ago to qualify as a yoga teacher. I started my journey as a Beauty and Holistic therapist where I’ve been practicing for over 17 years, through holistic study of all types of alternative treatments from aromatherapy, reiki, reflexology and ayurveda has made me aware oh how beneficial it is to treat the body as a whole mind body and spirit. 

My style of yoga encompasses my holistic outlook. I teach a dynamic yoga flow, where I link with the lunar cycles, seasons and our own energy system, which brings balance and elements of strength, flexibility, encouraging students to break through their limitations both on and off the mat, through using pranayama, asanas and meditation.
