Colette began her career as a Complementary/Sports Remedial therapist. It led her to work alongside osteopaths & chiropractors from all over the world, giving her a totally different insight into the body. While working abroad she was introduced to Iyengar Yoga.
Her passion grew quickly when she found herself based in Jersey CI and was introduced to Bikram Yoga, later qualifying as a teacher in 2001, it helped her to rebalance a malalignment within her neck area. Under the guidance of a senior Iyengar teacher, she was taught yoga therapeutics and later her travels took her to Asia and this is where Colette believes her eyes were opened to the world of yoga, ayurvedic medicine, and her favorite Yin Yoga. She spent 8 years working and training in and around Singapore, trained and worked with an ayurvedic doctor for prescribed Dosha classes and returned home to open Infinity in 2013.
Colette's passion for anatomy has found its perfect marriage with pilates and yoga. She teaches with a light-hearted attitude, "Give yourself time, turn up and be yourself, always keep your sense of humor in class."

Steph trained in one of London’s top drama schools to pursue a career in acting and found the industry was much tougher than I had anticipated. During the three years, she gradually began to lose confidence in herself and the stress of the course became quite overwhelming. In her second year, a yoga studio opened locally so she took advantage of every offer going and attended as many classes as her student income would allow. After a few classes, she noticed a huge difference not just physically but mentally. She had so much energy and found calmness and clarity when dealing with tricky or nerve-wrecking situations which are something you are faced with daily when starting out in this industry.
In February 2015 she decided to take her yoga further and headed to teacher training in Australia to study with Jimmy Barkan. Steph is so excited to be sharing this sequence with you all and hopes it inspires you to take time out of your busy lives and focus on yourself. You deserve it.
Jamie believes the yoga room is a sanctuary to be yourself and discover yourself.
He was introduced to yoga in 2012 practicing the classical hot sequence of 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises. With this as a foundation, he moved on to Infinity to explore other sequences and the freedom of vinyasa flow.
In 2014 Jamie completed his training in Thailand with Absolute Yoga and has since been leading classes in hot yoga, vinyasa, and restorative.
Jamie teaches with a focus on alignment and a light-hearted and encouraging approach, especially when it comes to more challenging pose like arm balances.
