Ailith Anderson - Owner
Ailith’s teaching style is no-nonsense, but compassionate. In her classes, she prioritises precise instructions, while also leaving space for self-inquiry, and this enables students of all levels to feel confident and supported in their own personal practice.
While Ailith maintains and respects traditional yogic values, she also regularly looks beyond the yoga mat in search of science-lead movement disciplines and mindfulness techniques. She bakes these into her teaching to form modern, dynamic and anatomically intelligent practices that leave plenty of room for a fun and satisfying class.
Ailith views movement as a puzzle which she is fascinated to explore. She is always learning and is open to discovering new methods of teaching that can continue to make her classes practical and beneficial to students in and out of the yoga classroom.

Ailith is 500 RYT qualified and is the owner of East Side Yoga.
Rebecca was first introduced to Yoga during her professional dance training, as a complimentary form of exercise to enhance her strength and flexibility. She continued to practice yoga for its physical benefits for several years before taking a two-year break from dancing professionally. However, it wasn’t long into the break before she remembered that she loved the feeling of being connected to her body through movement, so while still needing a rest from the competitive and gruelling dance world, she went back to Yoga. This time Rebecca opened up to the mental health benefits of Yoga, as well as the physical benefits, and she has never looked back. Through Yoga, Rebecca has learnt to be compassionate towards her body, and to let go of competing with herself (although this is still a work in progress!)
Her classes will leave you feeling strong, energised and calm in both body and mind.
Fern (500 RYT) first discovered yoga in 2007, when she moved to London to pursue a career as a journalist. Yoga provided a welcome relief to the pressures of the newsroom and fast became a constant as she worked her way up the journalism ladder, winding up as Associate Editor of ELLE UK.
In 2015, she finally took the plunge and completed her 200 hours with Frog Lotus Yoga and Stretch London. Shortly after, she swapped deadlines for downward dogs, and has been teaching full-time ever since, recently completing her 500 hours with Jason Crandell. She is also trained in Yin Yoga (with Norman Blair) and Pregnancy Yoga (Nadia Narian), and undertook a transformative six-month mentorship with Naomi Absalom in 2017.
Fern teaches alignment-focused vinyasa flow where playfulness and enquiry is actively encouraged, empowering you to progress and adapt your practice to a level that meets you where you’re at.
