Meet your Teacher
“Souls don’t meet by accident” – J.B
Welcome to my web page. I don’t know what brought you here, but you are here, and right now that is all that matters. I hope you find something amongst this space that inspires or lights you up, in some way.
For those of you who do not know me yet, I am Holly Cleanthi. I am a yoga, meditation, breathwork and movement teacher and student, learning every day from my students and all the powerful teachers around me.
I love the sense of openness, connection, and community that yoga brings. Expanding us as individuals and uniting us together as one. I am here to share the divine experience found within, around, and through yoga.
I am an advocate of positive psychology and self-love. In addition, I am utterly fascinated by anatomy, and so my teaching style combines anatomical science and biomechanics with ancient wisdom and spirituality.
“Yoga with Holly is always a warm and healing experience. We come away feeling as if our body and mind have had a great workout! I have had individual (family) sessions and group sessions too, in a class. At all times I feel confident that Holly is making sure that we are safe and practising good yoga.
Her manner is so gentle and reassuring that she calms my busy mind. My children love their yoga sessions with Holly, so much that they attend sessions with Holly in ‘Kids Yoga’ on their own.
Her attention to detail and clear instruction means that I have held poses that I have only ever dreamed of (Headstand) and got there without even realising! She is an inspirational teacher and a wonderful human being and our family value her massively.
Yoga with Holly is better than therapy!”
“I found Holly online in October 2018 when I was looking to start yoga for the first time in search of some mindfulness and to build my physical strength.
I got in touch with Holly and straight away she made me comfortable with her warm personality.
I've been attending Holly's classes for nearly 18 months and I can't imagine yoga not being a part of my life now. My stress levels have reduced, my flexibility and strength has improved and she brings such joy and loveliness to each class. She also brings the extra touches to every practice with twinkly fairy lights, lovely music and essential oils but most of all she corrects you throughout the class so you know where to make improvements.
Holly has become a friend and someone who I look forward to having a catch up with every week. Thank you, Hols, for being a wonderful yoga teacher!”
“I’d highly recommend Holly to anyone, she is an amazing yoga teacher.
She shows up so authentically and filled with love, her smile is infectious.
She has a beautiful soul and is incredibly caring, always keeping an eye on us and readjusting as needed.
You won’t regret an hour with Holly... you will always want to come back for more and more ♥️♥️♥️.”

“Holly’s love of yoga and her joy in teaching is obvious from the minute you enter her class.
Gently encouraging, wonderfully positive and always with time to ‘share and show’ after class, Holly is a warm and inclusive teacher, making everyone feel welcome in her class regardless of who they are or where they are on their yoga journey.
She provides opportunities for individual development as well as a safe and encouraging space to try new and challenging postures. Holly’s natural openness and ability to connect with each and every student brings a real sense of community to her classes which make them a particularly nice place to be!
My confidence in my yoga practice has improved dramatically since attending Holly’s classes. Her subtle, yet insightful adjustments have led to big improvements in my postures which has a lasting impact both on and off the mat.
I leave Holly’s class always feeling a little blissed out – knowing I have worked hard and with a sense of peace and calm that is hard to beat!
Holly’s unique blend of fun and spiritual centeredness means she is an absolute joy to be around and her classes are a highlight of my week.”
