Our People

lyn-longLyn Long
Shambhala Studios is run by Lyn and her dedicated team of teachers and therapists. After illness and a long search to find a premises that provided the right atmosphere, the studio was opened in February 2007 and is Leigh’s premier yoga centre.

She is very reticent about blowing her own trumpet and probably won’t let me put this on the website publicly but Lyn’s determination to provide a calm, relaxing haven away from today’s busy urban jungle has been an inspiration to all who work with her.

Nicky’s smiling face is the first thing you see when you walk through the door at Shambhala Studios.
