Aquila attended her first yoga class at the age of eight in Varanassi, India when her mother was completing her own teacher training. Nearly 15 years later she decided to take the plunge and spread her knowledge to others by completing her 200hrs back in India with Vijay Mar. This very traditional Ashtanga training gives her classes a strong link with the ancient philosophies and teachings. She has gone on to study under Paul Harvey of the Viniyoga dynasty, Ana Forrest, Stewart Gilchrist, Amanda Denton and Manju Jois. Aquila runs retreats all over the world and in the UK.

She is now living in Bridport with her partner and young son and is a trainee doula.
