The Misfits

Nic - yoga teacher and founder

Hi, I'm Nic. I teach yoga and I live in Brighton. Despite the cliches about yoga teachers, I am neither super zen nor super skinny. 

I have a 500 hour yoga teacher training qualification through Yoga Professionals and the YMCA, and spend a geekily large amount of time working on my own practice and the best ways to make yoga accessible to all students. 

Favourite yoga pose: Simhasana/Lion - and not just because a roomful of people simultaneously sticking their tongues out is funny. 

This is me after a particularly challenging yoga session. If I look knackered, it's because I was! But also chilled and happy...

Ellie - communications whizz and yoga enthusiast

Hi, I’m Ellie. I’m a writer by trade and I have been an amateur yoga 
enthusiast ever since I bought Geri Halliwell’s yoga video on VHS 
circa 2001. Since then I’ve been through intense phases of Bikram, 
done yoga in India, and been lucky enough to have some private 
coaching from Nic. You’ll mostly find me helping out with the Misfit 
blog/newsletter, and probably wearing a kaftan while I give out 
homemade snacks at workshops. 

Favourite yoga pose: Does a hungover child’s pose count? OK, I’m also 
fond of Pigeon.

Ellie in India, complete with bindi... and beer!

Duchess - top dog

Hi, I'm Duchess and I live with Nic. I like watching her practice yoga, though I'm still not sure what all that strange stretchy bendy stuff is about.

Favourite yoga pose: Downwards facing human 

This is me in my favourite chair. It used to belong to my humans, but I decided it was meant for me instead.
