Exploration of the Self

Reveal your unique strengths as well as exploring topics such as meditation, mindfulness, pranayama , kriyas, mudras and bandhas.

Your Yoga Teachers 

Faye Riches

Director of Studies

Faye Riches is a registered 5000hr Yoga Elder for IYN and she has been studying yoga for over 15 years & teaching for over 12 years. 

Faye has already had over 20 of her students go on to be yoga teachers & understands it to be her dharma to empower her students in whatever way she can. Faye is passionate and eager to convey the relationship between the physical form and the emotional/mental states. Her personal investigation and study with some of the world’s leading teachers has led her to a greater understanding of the potential transformative energies that the various components of a yoga practice can give.

Samantha Layzell

Senior Tutor

With over 20+ years of experience Samantha has a calming vibe and positive energy which comes through in every class where she compassionately encourages her students to indulge their physical, emotional and spiritual selves in a powerful exploration of yoga. 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 and one of her big loves is sharing yoga with people who didn’t think yoga was for them.

You asked for feedback on my experience at Same Star Yoga, so here goes: The location - Really convenient!  I'm delighted the studio is so close to my home. Design and interior 'decor' -  A beautiful, calm and relaxing space. Perfect for practising Yoga. Teachers - All the classes I've attended have been expertly led.  The teachers are very attentive to students' needs & requirements. Prices - Very reasonable.  I like the idea of the multi-class passes, which are very handy for those of us who want to try out different sessions.

I can't recommend this studio and the teachers Faye and Samantha at Same Star yoga enough. I am now doing my Yoga Teacher Training with them which I feel shows how highly I regard their level of tuition.
