THE TEAM

Imelda Easthorpe

Founder & Chief Executive Officer

 

I have been in the fitness industry in varying degrees for a little over 24 years and have always demonstrated an enormous passion for sport, health and wellbeing.

 

From a young age I have always been involved in sport and love the team work, euphoria and discipline that this gives, yet alone the health benefits and confidence to me as an individual.

 

As a keen road cyclist I love teaching RPM and Body pump and believe that they are vital ingredients in helping me when I’m out on the road.

INSTRUCTORS

Adele

 

Hi I’m Adele – and very passionate and fun Group Exercise Instructor at Synergy 81 in Chessington, with 14 years of experience. My motto is: It’s all about having fun and don’t take yourself too seriously! And if you come to my classes you’ll understand why.

 

My classes are primarily Body Jam, DDMIX and Fitsteps, which demonstrate my passion for dancing and my versatility in all styles of dance. In addition to, Body Balance, which I believe is the ultimate class to complement the rigours of other dance and fitness classes. The highlight of my career so far – sharing the stage and team teaching DDMIX with the “wonderful” Darcey Bussell.

Bad     I’m too much of a perfectionist

Laura

 

Hi I’m Laura, having worked in the world of advertising for a few years I learnt very quickly what it was to burn out! I started yoga to refill my energy levels and fell in love with the practice, so as soon as I was qualified to teach I quit my city job and started my own yoga company, Yaur Yoga. Yaur Yoga is your time - I love giving people the time in their day to look after themselves - looking after yourself gives you the energy to look after others and that should make a really lovely world to live in. Baptiste Style Vinyasa Flow yoga focuses on empowerment, both for your body and your mind so you will come out of class feeling totally re-energised and renewed.
