Jay Marway  - Yoga

Jay is Certified Yoga Teacher, reiki practitioner and closely studies MMA conditioning principles. Having spent over a decade working in the architectural industry she now focuses on the structure of the human body to enhance stability, functionality and energy flow.


Her style of yoga is primarily is based around Hatha Yoga, a practice over 5000 years old. She blends this with different techniques from various disciplines, both traditional and modern.




From an early age Duane was involved in sport, starting with Karate at 8 years old and then at the age of 13 went on to kick boxing.


After recovering from a kick boxing injury he continued his quest for the ultimate sport that he would be best suited to and joined South Norwood and Victory amateur boxing club where he met Terry Smith, Mark Gillespie and also at that time Will Gardner.


They recognised his talent and refined his boxing skills and from here he embarked on an impressive amateur boxing career.

Duane at the age of 25, amassed an impressive 32 wins from 38 fights and picked up numerous honours.


Duane progressed his boxing career at Queensbury Boxing League, and was given a chance to engage in a paid bout on the unlicensed boxing scene.  Having successfully sold 150 tickets and competing, it was a natural progression to go from amateur to pro.


Duane is currently an unbeaten professional boxer.
