Penny - Director & Founder

Penny Weston is an entrepreneur from Staffordshire who became duty manager of Moddershall Oaks at the age of 19 and soon after, Director at the age of 24. Helping to take the business from small health club to leading destination spa with over 100 employees, Penny has been involved in all aspects of its success including marketing, sales and operations.

Behind the scenes in Penny’s personal life, health problems with anxiety and asthma led her to become invested in learning about nutrition and fitness. After years of research and planning, 9 months of construction and a £1.5m investment, MADE opened in August 2018.

Kirsty - Centre Manager

Local to the area, Kirsty is here to ensure that MADE redefines the way in which people view wellness.

Grace- Yoga Instructor

Grace is a Staffordshire based Yoga and Meditation teacher with a passion for helping everyone she encounters – both in her classes and off the mat – manifest their dreams, heal past hurt and step into their true power.

Inspired by her earlier elite gymnastics career Grace’s love for movement translates to a physical practice and teaching style that is both strong and graceful, challenging and grounding. Over the past few years her yoga practice has become more than a physical practice on the mat. It has evolved organically on mental, emotional and spiritual dimensions, and now, alongside meditation, plays a momentous role in nourishing her physical and mental well-being.

In 2019 Grace ventured to Sri Lanka, where she completed her RYS 200hr Yoga Teacher Training. Through teaching yoga, meditation and running an online platform she helps others learn to listen to come home to themselves and reclaim their true power.

Charlie - Yoga Instructor

Charlie is a yoga teacher, movement enthusiast and health and wellness advocate. As an active person Charlie promotes wellbeing through movement, encouraging those around her to take time for themselves and indulge in moving meditation as she see’s movement as an opportunity to check out and tune into the present. Her Vinyasa practice grew from a love of playing transitions, linking movements and discovering new ways to enter in and out of postures almost like a dance with the mat. Charlie aspires to teach sequences that spark the imagination and leave students going away feeling excited to make discoveries of their own. Believing that everybody has hidden treasures within themselves waiting to be discovered Charlie encourages those around her to take stock each day by spending time loosing themselves in self care and nurturing their relationship with themselves. Her classes promote a balance between strength and flexibility with an onus on challenging possibilities and redefining what students think is possible. Charlie strives to create a safe space for students to honour their body, breathe deeply and make their practice their own.

Patience, determination, dedicated

Strengths: Flexible, strong, balanced
