The Team - East Midlands
Kirty Solanky- Leicestershire
I am a qualified fitness & yoga instructor working with people of all ages and abilities. I qualified as a fitness instructor back in 2009 while working part-time as a gym instructor. I really enjoyed the difference I could make when I encouraged people to believe in themselves and perform beyond what they thought was possible.
My classes are a balance of yang and yin, they aim to build gentle heat, strength, and flexibility in the body, while simultaneously bringing a sense of deep relaxation and calm to the mind. They are suitable for all as I believe that the classes should adapt to the individuals and that everyone has their own path to follow as we work our way to the end of each session.

Vera Venancio - South Derbyshire
"Hi, my name is Vera and I am a qualified Group Instructor and Personal trainer specialised in GP Exercise Referral and Chair-Based Exercise. I love helping people engage in a more active lifestyle as I truly believe that not only can people benefit from being more physically healthy but equally it can improve their mental and general wellbeing. I have previously worked in the care sector as a support worker and healthcare assistant. Delivering chair-based exercise in Care-homes brings together the best of these 2 worlds, and I am very excited to do it!
You can expect from my classes a balanced mix of Dance, gentle Resistance and Pilates exercises suitable for everyone, ensuring a complete, safe, effective but mostly fun session on the beat of the music, where everybody will smile!"
