“Thanks to Jo for her fantastic yoga classes”
Judith Jackson
“I really enjoy Yoga with Jo! She has been helping me relieve the stresses and tension in my bad back through yoga in her 1 to 1 and also class sessions. She creates a friendly calm atmosphere and I look forward to it every week :)”
Murray Cummings
“I attended Jo’s flow yoga class which I enjoyed thoroughly. I found the class a great mixture of strengthening exercises alongside relaxation. She was very attentive to the different needs of the people in her class. I would definitely recommend her classes for anyone interested in trying yoga as a beginner or for those with a previous experience of yoga.”
Laura Hopgood
“Having tried various styles of yoga in the past I thought I knew what to expect in a class but Jo’s style of teaching was above anything I’ve ever experienced before. She made everyone in the class feel totally relaxed and comfortable straightaway, from total beginners to more experienced practitioners and was also able to tailor the class to individual needs so everyone came away from her classes feeling that she had brought the best out of them. I also liked the fact that she is very knowledgeable about nutrition and is happy to give share great recipes! I’m now a green smoothie convert!”

“Jo’s teaching for me was the perfect balance of a great class challenging but easy to follow. I am easily distracted, but Jo helped me to keep focused and motivated. She made a few adjustments to my postures, this gave me confidence that I was doing it correctly. I felt she gave everyone time. I will definitely be having regular lessons with Jo!”
Holly Jacques
“Thank you for an amazing yoga lesson as always. I feel great!”

Jo, just wanted to say thank you for your help in the classes that we had with you in Clapham.
You are by far one of my favourite teachers and we always used to go back to your classes every week, because we really loved the way you taught us.
You talked through the breathing really well, which is obviously the most important part, but sometimes the most difficult to grasp.
Can wait to do another class with you soon. Please keep me updated on where you are teaching.
Namaste xx”

“I had my first Vinyasa yoga class with Jo last week . I wanted to give something back to my mind and body and that is exactly what I did. Her class left me with and sense of openness and energy which stayed with me throughout the week. Great relaxed class and lovely teacher will be back very soon”
Lou Phipps
“Just wanted to share the love with anyone else out there who gets involved in some of Little Banyan Yoga’s healing programmes and sessions. I have now enjoyed and experienced great and positive changes within myself through having Reiki sessions. I feel more in touch with my body and mind and spirit, which now feel in greater harmony with one another. I feel contentment I never knew I could gain through this type of therapy, so to speak. I have also just started yoga classes which have been fun as well as uplifting. Didn’t realise how much it gives your body an all over workout too. I Definitely recommend Jo Tison as a teacher and healer as she just makes you feel at ease and her positive energy and enthusiasm is, I find, enlightening in itself. Thank you and I look forward to my next session!”
