Chris Knott

Strength & Body Composition

Being superhuman has always fascinated me. I idolised superman as a young child and grew up watching World’s Strongest Man admiring the incredible feats of strength. After starting working in a commercial facility, I slowly started to become obsessed with human performance. I consumed as much info from blogs, articles, videos as possible and started to build a backlog of training knowledge to put in to action.

Bean Peel

Yoga Instructor

Over the years I’ve been fortunate to be trained and mentored by some truly innovative and influential yoga practitioners such as Max Strom of Inner Axis, Triyoga’s Anna Ashby and James Reeves of Irest Yoga nidra. With a background in the film and television industry as a stunt performer, and as a busy mother of three boys, I understand the demands we can place on our bodies and the importance of a strong core – both physical and mental! I’m excited about sharing my positive outlook and life inspiration with others through my unique blend of ‘breath, balance and being’ based yoga.
