I am the Fitness Class Lead at The Sands Centre. I have over 30 years experience in teaching & have taught many different types of fitness classes over the years.I can’t pick a favourite as I love all the classes & customers. I particularly like talking to people & love being part of such a fabulous centre. This isn’t a job it’s my passion.


I have taught various classes at The Sands over the many years I have worked here & still have passion for teaching.  I enjoy both teaching & participating in spin classes and also attends the gym regularly too. I love trying to motivate my participants in order for them to push just that little bit harder!


I’m Donna, I’ve been an instructor since 2011. Wanted to become an instructor because I loved Combat which is still my favourite class to teach. I love to have a dance and hopefully bring a bit a joy to people’s day. I dislike too much negativity. There’s always something to smile about.


Greetings, My name is Simon, One of 3 Yoga instructors at the Sands Centre in Carlisle, Cumbria. My Style Teaching adheres to the traditional teachings of Yoga originating from Himalayas, India and provides a diverse and transformative application to peoples lives in order to improve overall health.


I’m Bronwyn,I love all things yoga,focusing on movement, breath and how this enhances our wellbeing .I’m also a secret lover of Boxfit . Hate missing the class on a Friday !

I am qualified to teach Hatha Yoga for all abilities and ages; onsite and online. I particularly like teaching Chair Yoga, slow mindful flows and meditative relaxation to unite body, mind and breath - finding a deeper peace. My favourite colour is green and in my favourite drink I like a splash of lime. When needed, it’s so fun to cover Barre Fit classes!
