To move the body is to heal the body, and that’s why I love yoga and massage and offer them as a service to others. I like to play, have fun and laugh, which is a reflection of my practice. Come and connect, breath and smile to better health and happiness.
Why do I love Yogaleggs? Because slipping these beauties on brings a little bit of magic to the mat! My legs just wanna dance, fly and have fun which inspires the rest of my body to move. Not bad for a pair of gorgeously designed pants!
I’m so proud to be an ambassador for Yogaleggs. Mandy was one of my first ever students when I began teaching in Epping at the beginning of 2012 and has been a regular ever since, frequently attending classes 3-5 times per week. She was immediately hooked on yoga and has been a real advocate, bringing almost everyone she knows to my classes and workshops, including her mum, 3 of her children and around 30 of her friends!
It’s been really exciting to watch her and Becki grow the seeds of Yogaleggs over the last couple of years as their smiles have brightened up my classes since the very beginning and they’ve encouraged us all (male and female, young and old) to be bold, embrace colour and not hide in the shadows in black leggings and jogging bottoms.
I trained with the British Wheel of Yoga (500 hours diploma) and completed further BWY studies to teach yoga to children. I also recently completed restorative yoga training with Judith Hanson Lasater and I am a registered Relax and Renew® trainer.
My weekly classes and workshops are based around Epping in South West Essex and I also offer regular eco yoga retreats in East Anglia. (You’re very likely to see both Mandy and Becki at any of these!). I also teach children aged 2 and above in local classes and schools.
I’m a keen allotment gardener and almost self-sufficient, growing a lot of the vegetables required to feed me and my husband. I also love to cook and work to combine these interests with yoga (often taught outdoors in the summer months) by running classes and events which are accompanied by delicious food and are a celebration of our beautiful local natural environment.
I am very proud to be the first Zumba Fitness/Toning Instructor ambassador for Yogaleggs. As soon as I saw the wide range of bright, colourful patterns I immediately fell in love with them and knew they would be perfect for my Zumba classes.
Zumba is a dance fitness workout which uses beats from around the world. We combine low and high-intensity moves in an interval-style, to create a calorie burning party. As you can imagine, this needs good fitting workout leggings, which is why I love Yogaleggs!
One of the key things about being an instructor is feeling comfortable when teaching, though I’ve often found comfort brings boring and bland. Not only do Yogaleggs vibrant colours look amazing, they also have a high wasted band which brings extra comfort and also prevents constant adjusting whilst you’re trying to get your groove on.
I’m living proof that Yogaleggs are not just for Yoga, I wear them in to teach my Zumba classes, workout in the gym and also as loungewear, basically I live in them!

Why do I love Yogaleggs:
Yogaleggs are colourful, fun and they fit perfectly. They allow you to move freely both in yoga and other types of fitness, they never fall down due to the fabulous high waistband and are made of the perfect thickness so you don’t have to worry about them being see through.

I am humbled to be asked to be an ambassador for Yoga Leggs – thank you girls, it’s an honour. I love the bold prints of Yoga Leggs and believe that you can never have too much leopard print or pink. It is great to be able to purchase such a great product and support a local company.
I am a student British Wheel of Yoga Teacher in my final year of study. I have been practising yoga for 16 years and studying for the past 4. I teach hatha yoga classes in North London. I also teach an antenatal yoga class.
I am far from the most conventional yogini, I try to make my classes serious fun yet informative. Yoga Leggs fits in perfectly with my personality and style of teaching. The students that come to my class are coming round to my way of thinking.
I’m passionate about working with women to connect to their truth, ﬁnd their feminine power through yoga and energy work. I’m passionate about building communities and being part of a tribe of like-minded people. My work now is to bring all of this together, to share through inspirational and transformational retreats, workshops, courses, classes, privates and life coaching.
I work with myth, archetypes and Goddess and weave this into all of my sessions, ancient wisdom for the modern woman.
I have been a Yoga teacher for 10 years, I have my Senior Yoga Teacher from Yoga Alliance and I am currently working towards my 500 hours with Alessandra Pecorella of Aditya Yoga School. My primary teachers are Delamay Devi and Alessandra Pecorella, both Shiva Rea’s afﬁliate teachers and I love the creativity, ﬂuidity, femininity and ﬂow in this method of Prana Flow. Whilst being a UK based teacher, I teach internationally via retreats and workshops.
Why do I love Yogaleggs? I just love colour – I never wear black and I would love to make the world a more colourful place. As soon as I ﬁrst saw yogaleggs designs I fell in love with the colours and the designs and then once I had worn them, I fell in love again with the ﬁt, comfort and practicality. They have a high waistband that stays in place, they are opaque and the slight compression is ﬂattering for my legs. I live in leggings and I am often stopped in the supermarket or on the street to ask where my leggings are from!
As well as Yoga Leggs, I love yoga, the sunshine, being outside, turquoise, learning new things, chocolate, the ocean, travel, ﬂip ﬂops, orange, sunsets and sunrises, Bali, my son, laughter, joy, colourful clothes, connection…
Kat King has been teaching yoga for 8 years and practising for 18. Kat runs loveuyoga and Yogakats for kids. She specialises in yoga for pregnancy, mother and baby, baby massage and well woman.
“I am super excited to be an ambassador for Yogaleggs As a yoga teacher fit is the most important factor, the leggings are high waisted and stay up during class.
All of the amazing colours make them hard to choose from but they look just as good on the school run as they do in class.
I love them!”
Olivia Marley teaches alignment-based vinyasa yoga classes across London, both alone and as part of the award-winning Yogasphere team. She also travels Europe teaching workshops and is a regular guest teacher at Casa Yoga in Milan.
“I always like to wear bright colours so when a friend introduced me to Yoga Leggs I just LOVED them. Every so often a student will ask me where I get my leggings from, so now I am very proud to tell them about this brand. I like the high waistband that ensures they stay in place no matter what pose you’re in, and the quality of the material means they remain opaque even in the deepest forward bends. Their vests are flattering without being clingy too. Thanks Yoga Leggs!”

Day to day, you’ll find me in Shoreditch where I combine both my teaching life and that of a freelance marketer. I teach either early morning or evening and spend my day working from a desk space.
I’ve worked in marketing for 15 years and last summer, I packed in my full-time job in a tech startup to get my own marketing clients and set up my yoga business. It’s been a pretty smooth experience so far and I absolutely love the freelance way of life. I had wanted to do it for years but I think when you are truly in the right head space for change, the universe sends positive things your way – connections, people, everything you could imagine and hope for. My advice for anyone wanting to make a change in their life is to put it out there – tell your friends and family, make it public – once you put that intention behind it, your world starts moving 🙂
I’m very excited to be involved with the Yoga Leggs team. It’s such an inspiring, young brand with a fun, bright clothing range that also fits with my fun approach to yoga. I love wearing Yoga Leggs at any time of day and I absolutely adore the quality of the fabric and fit.
Say hello 🙂
Lucinda Michelle Ross
I am an Ashtanga Vinyasa teacher based in Plymouth, where I teach regular classes. I first found yoga when I was nineteen through meditation and pranayama; my asana practice came later and has deepened over time. For me Yoga is the journey to my authentic Self, offering me balance, harmony and happiness. Yoga inspires me in every aspect of my life – and I love it!
I completed my RYT200 training at It’s Yoga Fuerteventura and have since studied with Mark Robberds. I love to travel, but whenever I can I spend time in sunny Fuerteventura, my spiritual home. Being close to nature and the ocean, practising on the beach or in the mountains, breathing fresh air and spending time with other yogis keeps me inspired.
Finding the sunshine in your soul and the freedom to share that light with others is what Yoga is all about. That is why I am super excited to be invited to become a Yoga Leggs ambassador. I love the joyful, vibrant designs of the range, and I respect the organic way Becki and Mandy have developed the company – from the practice and from the heart.
I’m an Essex based ashtanga yoga teacher in the UK.
Before I discovered yoga I was a keen martial artist for many years building strength and self-discipline in my practice. This became a great foundation for my yoga practice. Yoga not only built up my strength and increased my flexibility significantly it also increased my confidence and self-awareness.
My teacher training course changed my life, my yoga practice wasn’t just a hobby or an escape to a busy day anymore. It became a way of life. After a lot of spiritual reading, meditation and a dedicated daily yoga practice I began to develop a deeper understanding of who I was and why I am here. Yoga for me was the missing piece of the puzzle. I believe that anything is possible if you want it enough and if you believe in yourself. I feel honoured to be on this journey and to be able to help others begin theirs.
My classes are energising and challenging for all levels. I focus on restoring the body and increasing core strength.

I am an abode yoga teacher, teaching from my heart sharing with love the essence of what I feel is yoga. My journey began at the age of 6 when I was captivated by the yoga TV star Lyn Marshall wearing a pink leotard and doing lion breath!
I have continued to practice and journeyed through different styles including Hatha, Vinyasa, Ashtanga and Yin finally reaching a beautiful place where I can offer a mixture of Ashtanga Vinyasa based practices trying to offer a healing positive experience to everyone.
I teach in the North East in a sleepy little town called Saltburn where everyone is crazy about yoga it’s as if I entered a magical bubble when I moved here in 2015 and yoga life continues to blossom in the form of workshops, karma yoga events and retreats.
I am honoured to represent yogaleggs especially as they have been the first consistent brand I have tried that actually are high waisted enough for yoga yet don’t fall down when I am running. I look forward to taking my yoga leggs travelling to retreats and trainings all over the globe.
I’m a mum to two gorgeous girls, a Dru Yoga teacher as well as running a small textile company, all from a small town called Yarm, in the North East.
Growing up, I was immersed in my Mum’s love of yoga. Mum had such a calm and fun-loving personality; always happy and always smiling. She was my first yoga teacher and the inspiration I now have to help others, through my teaching.
Unlike my Mum, I, however, always lived life with a level of self-induced stress. I always wanted to do everything successfully, at 100 miles per hour.
In 2006, I came face to face with my own mortality, as the result of a car accident and had to leave my much-loved career in the police force. It was at this time I found myself with regrets and re-runs of the past, as well as having fears for the future. During this stressful time, I turned to yoga. I learnt the art of journaling, movement of the body with yogic breathing, and the stillness of meditation. Through yoga, I learnt to love myself and accept life and all it presents. Now I completely live each day to the full, surrounded by the people I love and sharing these lessons with my students in the North East. I love how yoga can change lives, it’s certainly changed mine!
Textiles and fabrics have always been a passion of mine, so when I came across the colourful and vibrant designs at Yoga Leggs I was hooked, I then found out that not only do Yoga leggs look fantastic but they actually stay up and are great for jogging, dog walking and for wearing to the office too ! I’m now addicted with a pair for each day of the week (and weekends) I am delighted to be a Yoga Leggs ambassador and to fly the flag for Dru yoga in the North East, whilst wearing awesome yoga pants!

Sonia from Sonia Noy Pilates on YogaLeggs – “I love the look and feel of Yoga Leggs leggings. They are fun and amazingly functional too! I took them for a test run during my ‘Sonia’s Summer Legs Pilates Workshop’ and not only did they feel comfortable for the whole workout, they held up brilliantly through every move. I can’t wait to get more!”
Hi, I’m Andrew Prod, I am a contemporary portrait photographer. I am a dreamer, optimist and adventurer. I specialise in Modern Portraits and Wedding Photography with a passion for creating beautiful and classic images.
My mission is to capture the important moments in our lives, giving you a piece of them to hold on to forever. The world has become a bit lost in the new digital age, and while it’s nice to appreciate a digital file, I focus on creating tangible products which give you an image that takes you back to that moment. The images that we create together will last a lifetime, and I want your great-grandchildren to cherish your images just as much as you will today.
For me, a photograph is more than just taking a picture; through an artistic vision I bring out the best version of you, full of expression and emotion. I also provide coaching in feeling comfortable and confident in front of the camera, a skill which will stay with you through your life.
Power and beauty exist in all of us, and I want to reflect that back to you through my images. I devote as much time as needed to your pre-shoot consultation so that I can get to see your personality and decide how best to let it come to life during your session.
Every image I create is of equal importance to me. Whether it is your dream wedding, fitness, dance, yoga or your personal branding photoshoot, I dedicate my time and care in producing images that you will love.
I love what I do which is why I do it, so if you have any questions or need any further information, please feel free to get in touch.

I am very excited and feel honoured to be the first Yoga Leggs Ambassador ‘up north’!
My first purchase was the ‘Sexy Snake’ leggings from Mandy at the Om Yoga show in Manchester. I’d had my eye on the fab design and wanted a pair of high waisters post baby number two. Once purchased, I was hooked!
I first practiced yoga at home with DVD’s and books from around the age of 16 which I found really complemented my dance training. I then found a regular practice with Ashtanga Teacher Dave Williams in Manchester after I left Uni around 2000. After many years of practicing yoga with great teachers around the world and in the UK, I decided to do my 200TT and qualified under the guidance of Anne-Marie Newland at Sun Power Yoga in 2013. I’ve also trained with Nadia Narain at Tri Yoga in London (pregnancy yoga), Uma Dinsmore-Tuli at Yoga Campus (Yoga Nidra) as well as attending regular workshops and training with inspirational teachers such as Kino, David Swenson, Ray Long and Andrea Etherington.
Originally I did my teacher training to gain a deeper understanding and knowledge of Yoga. It has changed my life and now I teach full time. I absolutely love to watch peoples Yoga journeys evolve, from the ‘I’m sorry I’m not flexible’ or ‘I can’t meditate’ declarations into a regular 3 to 5 days a week practice, joining in with workshops and retreats. And mostly hearing how their body, mind and lives have changed with their practice. It really is the best job.
My classes are mostly in Hale, Altrincham, Stretford and Manchester. I’m also teaching again at Kendal Calling Festival and will be hosting Workshops and retreats throughout the year (UK and abroad). My classes are dynamic, fun, challenging and flowing with a focus primarily on building strength physically and mentally and softening into a deep relaxation where you can find serenity on your mat space. All classes are mixed ability.

“I am honoured to have been asked to become a Yoga Leggs Ambassador. I love the ethos behind this company – run by two friends who are making a difference in how we see our leggs. I have been fortunate enough to have been gifted some Yoga Legg outfits for my Yoga Events and 404040 Plan filming days. The colour, cut, style and fit are great. Vibrant material, that moves with you when you workout. I wear mine for running, yoga, fitness and they stay put through all my squats, lunges, poses and speed runs, which is the ultimate test and they pass with flying colours. I’m looking forward to becoming an Ambassador for this great brand. Thanks Ladies”
