Welcome to Calm, a family run business in the heart of the Midlands and your retreat from the hustle and bustle of day-to-day life.
Many people don't know that before becoming a yoga teacher, our founder Vanessa spent 5 years working as a primary school teacher. She fell in love with yoga and the benefits it could bring when trying to ease her tight and tired muscles when training for the London marathon. At this point she started to crave more freedom and creativity and decided to make a change and move to the beautiful gold coast of Australia.
It was here she developed her love of yoga further and where she decided to combine this love with her skills as a teacher. After completing her yoga teacher training, she started teaching in village halls around the local area. It was in seeing the positive impact yoga had on people’s lives that she decided to set up Calm, as a safe, non- judgmental environment where people are encouraged to be the very best they can be.
Since starting out with our first studio in Burton-on-Trent two years ago, Vanessa's husband Blair has trained as a yoga teacher and they can both be found in our Burton and newly opened Derby studios sharing their passion for yoga. At Calm we are passionate that yoga is for everybody. You don't have to look a certain way or be extremely flexible to benefit from a yoga practice.
