Vinyasa/Hatha Yoga Teacher
Hello everyone ☀
I’m Tessa, founder of Tessa Clemson Yoga Studio, Great Harwood, Lancashire.
For years I had a vision of what I wanted to create - my experiences living, travelling & teaching abroad inspired me to grow a space & community, providing diverse, innovative & inclusive sessions & events.
With the help of my family & friends, we have transformed an old mill into a bespoke space for yoga, workshops, children’s clubs, holistic therapies & more.
A team of 14 different teachers & specialists offer sessions both at the studio & online. We use yoga & holistic therapies to promote positive health & wellbeing, inspire curiosity, self-discovery & understanding.
From Over 60s Yoga, to Yoga for Beginners, Yoga for Relaxation, Baby Yoga, Yoga for Menopause & Sunrise Yoga to Sound Baths, Massage, Women’s Circles, Ayurveda & Reflexology. We pride ourselves on being welcoming & inclusive…whether physically or mentally, our offerings provide the space to slow down, breathe & have some time for yourself.
I personally specialise in pre & postnatal yoga, with my new book ‘Yogi Baby’ providing the foundation to my beliefs, teachings & inspiration. Written with love in the first lockdown after having my little girl Frances in March 2020, it is a journal, guide & keepsake for anyone travelling through pregnancy, birth & into early parenting.
I have supported hundreds of families in meeting their babies, with an emphasis on compassion, connection & building confidence. The community & support network of mums at the studio has grown organically over the last few years. They continue to inspire, guide & direct offerings at the studio such as Infant Feeding Sessions, Meet Ups & craft events.
I have the most supportive & lovely partner, Lucas & I gave birth to my second baby in May 2023.
Exciting things are coming ☀ I feel incredibly grateful to all of you who have shared this journey so far.
Vinyasa Yoga Teacher

Using music and movement and breathing her flow yoga session suitable for all levels to promote wellness in mind and body.
Vinyasa Yoga Teacher
I first discovered Yoga just over ten years ago and my passion for the practice has deepened throughout the years. Inspired by how Yoga practice can care for your body both physically and mentally I then decided to study it further.
In 2016, I left the Ribble Valley to go volunteering and travel. Thailand was my first destination and there I taught Yoga for three months in an Orphanage and a Burmese Refugee School; here my passion to teach others about the practice really began. My path then lead me to India for two months where I studied and carried on teaching the practice of yoga.
After seven months of travelling, I then went to study Yoga Full time in Seville, in Southern Spain. After practising many traditions of yoga, it was Vinyasa Flow which had stolen my heart, and is now part of my daily routine. The Vinyasa Flow training explores the Eight Limbs of Yoga and also Hatha, Yin prenatal and restorative Yoga.
Feeling inspired and with a whole new level of enthusiasm to teach the mind, body and soul practice I came back to the Ribble Valley ready to share my love for Yoga with everyone. My teachings come from the heart, allowing you to fully connect with your very own practice and ensuring you will leave classes feeling nurtured and refreshed.
Amy has been teaching at Tessa Clemson Yoga since the studio opened back in 2019.
I found my love for yoga while on a journey of self exploration, which started in 2014, and is still continuing to this day.
I’ve practiced in some beautiful parts of the world but it wasn’t until I came full circle and arrived back in the UK that I took the plunge and enrolled on my 200hr teacher training course in summer 2019.
Since then my personal practice has developed and progressed hugely, but so has my teaching style.
While I prefer to be pushed to my limits when practicing for myself - taking risks and trying new things, building a strong dynamic (I’m a fan of hot, power and rocket yoga), my teaching style is slower and more playful, yet challenging at the same time.
I like to provide my students with new and exciting options during class while still keeping the sequences uncomplicated and accessible to all.
It’s lovely to see progression in the people I teach, not just physically, but spiritually and mentally too, and I feel blessed to be able to impart just a little bit of my love for and knowledge of this practice on to others.
You can find me teaching back to back classes at Tessa Clemson Yoga on a Wednesday night from 6.30pm.
I’ve also recently completed my children’s yoga teacher training and will be looking to take my pregnancy yoga teacher training sometime in the next couple of years.
Hatha Yoga Teacher
Shine has spent many years studying acupuncture, natural medicine and Hatha Yoga Therapy. He is a practitioner with over 12 years of experience across the UK, India and also the Maldives.
Hatha Yoga Teacher
Jordan has been practicing yoga for over 5 years learning the art of yoga, pranayama and meditation from teachers all over the world and has been teaching internationally and in the UK since 2021.
Jordans classes are predominantly Hatha/Hatha-flow style with a specific focus on the breath being at the centre of the practice following the 5 principles of yoga by Krishnamacharya.
She creates a warm, open, loving and safe environment for everyone to show up exactly how they are and her aim is for each individual to reach a state of peace and ease, both in the mind and the body and to find acceptance of who they are both on and off the mat.
Vinyasa & Hatha Yoga Teacher
Hannah offers a gentle & restorative take on Vinyasa & Hatha Yoga to leave you feeling calm, connected and deeply relaxed. Inspired by the interconnectedness, beauty & symbolism of nature, Hannah delivers classes that flow and coincide with the Phases of the Moon and the Wheel of The Year - allowing you to connect with your own true nature within. Hatha means “Sun and Moon” so expect classes that offer you time to realign, reflect, balance, slow down and therefore give you time to uncover and allow your inner light to shine bright like the sun.
Also a qualified Sound Healing Practitioner, expect each of Hannah's classes to conclude with a dreamy meditation and sound bath savasana.
After finding a deep sense of peace & stillness through 7 years of regular self practice, Hannah decided to embark on her Yoga Teacher Training in 2021 with the intention to dive into the divine history and expand her knowledge on this ancient moving meditation.
Vinyasa & Hatha Yoga Teacher
I fell in love with Yoga over twenty years ago, at a time when Yoga classes and teachers were few and far between, quite hard to imagine now!
Keen to develop my personal practice, I enrolled on a Yoga foundation course and was then kindly invited to join the 3 year teacher training program. I’ve now been teaching classes, workshops and running retreats for over 15 years.
I am passionate about the transformative power of Yoga and believe that Yoga is for everybody.
Drawing from many different Yoga traditions, my classes are accessible and inclusive and aimed at helping students feel stronger, calmer, happier and healthier.
I have a particular interest in women’s health and became a Menopause Yoga teacher in 2022. I run workshops and classes to help to prepare, support and guide women through their Menopause journey.
I’m very excited to be teaching a weekly Menopause Yoga class at Tessa Clemson Yoga.

Therapists in the Snug
I have over 10 years experience in health and social care. Specialising in complex health needs, life limiting illness and palliative care. During the pandemic I wanted to be able to offer more to the individuals in my care. Something that was totally for them, so I went back to the classroom to study complementary therapy. Something I’ve always had a personal passion for.
Over the past three years I have gained a level 4 diploma in advance complementary therapy. Currently I am studying at the Christie school of oncology working towards level 5 in Oncology care. Alongside this I work part time at a local hospice providing therapies for patients and their loved ones. My vision is to make complementary therapy accessible and affordable to everyone. It is so beneficial for everyone promoting balance and harmony in both mentally and physically.

After having my baby in 2022 I wanted a positive social experience for me and my newborn, so I started attending massage classes at Tessa Clemson Yoga. I was still recovering from my c-section so my mum would come along too. It was a great way for her to bond with baby whilst I had a natter and brew with other mums.
When Tessa invited me to train and teach at the studio in 2023 I was very excited because I know how much these classes mean to new mums and parents, and I love being a part of that.
I'm passionate about maternal mental health and wellbeing. My classes are somewhere for mums to come and feel comfortable and connected with other mums, as well as learning some tips and techniques for helping sooth and bond with your baby.
