Experience the harmonious connection between the body, mind and spirit, whilst bringing a sense of tranquillity and wellbeing into the present moment.
These classes began as a result of the global pandemic.
As everyone adapted to being in their homes for long periods of time, a group of friends met over the airwaves and began to practice.
Vinyasa Flow classes are offered via Zoom, giving you the option to practise in the comfort & convenience of your own home.
Private one-to-one classes can be taken, by arrangement. Please contact me directly.

MEET YOUR TEACHER
Dip.LCD, RAD RTS, LISTD Modern, Treehouse Yoga & Ashiyana India, 200hr Teacher Training.
Hello, I’m Karen Cadogan, Founder of The Hummingbird Studio. I am a registered teacher with The Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) and the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD).
My formative dance training was with The Sheila Hatch Ballet School, in Barbados From here, I completed an Art Foundation year before following my passion for Dance.
After graduating from The London College of Dance, my dance career has included performing in London Theatres, on the West End stage, and touring throughout UK and internationally, in musicals, jazz and contemporary dance, cabarets, pantomimes, Brit Awards, Blue Peter, 50th VE Day and other television appearances. I have also worked as a company member with the Jiving Lindy Hoppers, BOP jazz company and as a dancer and assistant choreographer in the King & I at the Royal Albert Hall.
As Head of Dance at Hurst Lodge School in Ascot for over 20 years, I devised and directed dance productions alongside teaching Ballet, Modern, Jazz, Tap and, GCSE Dance. Former pupils have successfully auditioned for vocational colleges.
My yoga journey began in 2008 when I started taking classes with Linda d’Antal at Treehouse Yoga Studio in London. This ignited a new passion! Having experienced the benefits of the practice, I then trained and certified as a (Yoga Alliance registered) teacher with Linda in London and Ashiyana India in 2016.
My dance training informs my approach to Yoga and I have a wide range of experience in teaching from beginners to more advanced students. In Dance, I have taught recreational & vocational students & professionals.
I also practice Mindfulness, Reiki, and Art. Exposure to these aspects has enhanced my ability to connect intuitively, and create an environment where everyone can flourish in a happy, creative and vibrant community.
As The Dancing-Yogi, I look forward to welcoming you to The Hummingbird Studio!
