When Gabrielle Zeter went to her first yoga class in 2012 it changed her life in a radical but also soft and gentle way.

Having always believed she was no good at any sports, Gabrielle started to feel physically stronger. With physical strength came mental strength. And then yoga connected her to so many beautiful people and opened up so many doors including Reiki, essential oils and retreats in Sri Lanka!

It came to a crescendo in 2020 and 2021 when Gabrielle qualified as a yoga teacher, deepened her mediation and spiritual practice, and became a practitioner of Cacao. She came home to her heart.

Gabrielle returned to Same Star Yoga in March 2021 to take Modules 1 and 3 of their Yoga Teacher Training and Faye and Samantha met her right where she was and she instantly felt at home.

Gabrielle says “I know this is Same Star’s offering to all yogis who step foot in this magical studio. I am so excited to be continuing my learning with Samantha with advanced mentorship in Yin Yang Balance and to be part of the team both on reception and on the mat.”

Samantha Layzell

Co-owner & Yoga Elder
Park Road, East Bergholt, Colchester, Suffolk, CO7 6XS

Samantha Layzell is a registered 5000hr Yoga Elder for IYN. Her personal yoga practice had supported her for 25+ years through back injuries, family life and a corporate career, and massive change, so when she had the opportunity to go on an extended retreat in 2013 she signed up for a 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training (200YTT) in Southern Goa, India with a view to simply deepen her own practice.

She had no idea that this was going to change her life forever! Within a month of returning to the UK, Samantha found herself teaching a regular yoga class and much to her surprise never looked back. During the past nine years Samantha has fully stepped into her own personal development, surrendering to the spiritual aspects of yoga and finding a path to compassionate self-healing through yin yoga & Buddhism.

Samantha’s calming vibe and positive energy come through in every class where she compassionately encourages her students to indulge their physical, emotional and spiritual selves in a powerful exploration of everything yin. Her knowledge and understanding of anatomy and physiology, gained through her work as a sports massage therapist, supports her teaching and allows her to identify modifications for people wishing to practice yoga as part of their injury rehabilitation process.

Samantha strongly believes that yoga is for everyone. One of her big loves is sharing yoga with people who didn’t think yoga was for them.

Samantha says…

Yin yoga invites us to be emotionally adventurous, truly being with what is and gives us the time and space to practice finding comfort within discomfort. Bringing yin energy into our lives balances and supports our yang (active) yoga practice and challenges us to dig deeper, unwrapping the layers until our innermost self, our Buddha nature, is revealed. Come and join me on the mat where you can luxuriate in the compassionate loving kindness that is yin yoga. Step into a beautiful nurturing space where you can broaden and enrich your yoga practice and truly find your bliss.”
