I have thoroughly enjoyed Maxine's classes which I began over a year ago as a relative beginner. Her ability to cater for all levels of practitioner, her attention to detail and creation of an authentic yogic experience never failed to impress. I always felt that Maxine ensured to uphold the true principles of yoga, she had an uncanny ability to make her students feel that they were sharing her journey through yoga and I always left her class feeling calm yet energised.

During the 18 months I've been a regular student with Maxine, I have learnt many new yoga techniques which have made my yoga practice both more enjoyable and more effective. Her teaching of the Scaravelli method has been a revelation. She has enabled me to tune into my body more and be more mindful, making yoga a more complete experience. Her intuitive style and clear instruction made lessons varied and interesting. I would recommend her as a teacher without hesitation.

I have done various yoga style classes over the years all of which have their benefits. However, the Scavaravelli style that Maxine teaches has been the most beneficial for me. It's gentle but challenging and teaches you a whole new way of trusting and allowing your body to relax into the postures.


I have done yoga for 4 years with two teachers in Spain and I thought they were OK, but when I began yoga with Maxine it was such a change. She is an EXCELLENT teacher. Only with her I have obtained the really benefit of yoga. I love her classes... they are amazing!!!
