About us

Happy Seal Yoga is based on the beautiful North Yorkshire Coast which also happens to be home to hundreds of Happy Grey Seals. Ask us nicely and we might just tell you where to find them. 

We are passionate about Yoga and our local coastline and look forward to sharing our passion for yoga with you.

 

 

Meet the team

Helen Peterson

Yoga Teacher & Owner

I have been practising yoga for over 15 years, I was drawn to yoga in order to improve my flexibility and more specifically to help with my surfing. Somewhere along the journey I found that as well as increasing my suppleness and strength, a calming of the mind and an inner stillness were a natural by-product of regular yoga practise. 

 

Inspired to deepen my knowledge and share my love of yoga with others I travelled to India - the birthplace of Yoga, where I completed my 200hr Teacher Training at Sampoorna Yoga Village in Agonda Beach, Goa, specialising in Ashtanga & Vinyasa flow yoga.

As a beach lifeguard for 30 years I have natural affinity with the coast and love to be by and on the sea, I recently completed my SUP (stand up paddle board) yoga teacher training in Malta.

I have a degree in Sport & Human movement studies, have always had a fascination with the human body and how it works, I love to see the benefits of Yoga both physical and mental in my students.

I look forward to seeing you on the mat or Paddleboard!
