Holly Mcfee is the owner of Yoga Hero Ltd. Holly has been practicing yoga since 2010, and teaching since 2013. Holly embarked upon her 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training here in Leeds, and after balancing a full time job and teaching yoga for just six months, went full time in to teaching.
In August 2015 Holly opened the Yoga Hero studio in Leeds Dock, and in June 2017 this studio expanded to become one of the largest dedicated yoga spaces in the North of England.

Holly is an experienced Ashtanga, Rocket, Vinyasa Flow, Yin and Restorative Yoga teacher, and the diversity across these disciplines combined with her passion for spreading the benefits of yoga, her dedication to make teachers be the best they can be and her ongoing study of philosophy, anatomy and asana, mean that teacher trainees will receive a vital combination of learning about the many aspects of yoga practice, philosophy, and teaching.
Aside from teaching and practising yoga, Holly loves to walk her pug, see friends and family, have the odd beer and explore the world.
