She spent 12 years as a long term resident student of yoga, meditation, and philosophy in Siddha Yoga Meditation Ashrams in India, the United States and around the world traveling with her main teacher, Gurumayi Chidvilasananda. She has also spent hundreds of hours with some of the world's leading yoga teachers and Yoga Schools: among them Ashtanga Yoga, Iyengar Yoga, Vinyasa Flow and is an Anusara-Inspired™ Teacher with over 500hrs credit hours towards Anusara Yoga Certification, one of the most professional and demanding programmes in the industry of yoga teaching.

The intention of every class is to cultivate strength, develop awareness and help students find balance, light-heartedness and rejuvenation within themselves. In her teaching she expresses her deep love and gratitude for yoga and her teachers and joyfully shares her lifelong experience and practice with her students. She works with her brother Vidura in their company Inner Splendor Media, http://www.innersplendoryoga.com/blog an international company dedicated to offering quality media products to support well being and deepen the experience of yoga and meditation.

Olwyn Kearns

Olwyn discovered Yoga in 1997 the first class she ever took was a Rocket Yoga class at It’s Yoga in San Francisco with Larry Schultz they were still calling the class Ashtanga Vinyasa at the time. Although finding herself in an advanced class meant falling over even in basic standing poses she knew she had found what she was looking for.
Years of traveling the world followed; finding the best classes she could, she finally settled on a teacher training in India in 2004. The opportunity to live for a month in an Ashram was too tempting and so worthwhile. Moving on from there she continued her studies in New York with Shiva Rea, more at Jivamukti, back to India again and again and continued to emerge herself in many styles from Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Shadow, Anusara until now 20+ years later offering a style that brings out the best in all she has learnt. She still sees herself and probably always will as a student first. The seat of the teacher is not something she ever does or ever will take for granted.

Classes are always strong but safe encouraging students to bring out the best of themselves.

Jess Oatway

 
Yogajess's journey was born out of work related stress and back pain! She was working in a stressful job and noticed that after sitting at her desk for 3 to 4 hours without moving, her back would really start to hurt. So she found a Vinyasa yoga class near to her work and started going…(religiously) ….every Monday. She was hooked!
 
She started to REALLY get stressed in work which was taking over in her downtime as well and noticed that during yoga practice her concentration and breathing were so focused and calm she would forget about work and her mind felt peaceful and spacious. The anxious feeling disappeared.
 
Jess decided she wanted to learn more about the practice, have it as part of her everyday life and to introduce other people to yoga. She trained to become a teacher and completed her YTT 200hrs under the tutelage of Sibylle Dalmain and Naomi Sturdy at Yoga Dublin.
 
She soon realised that while a lot of people knew about yoga and wanted to try it, there was a feeling of fear and intimidation to go to the first classes. Her goal is to take those fears away. You can expect to be pushed and to have a sense of achievement in Jess's class, feel calm and relaxed but still have fun and a laugh. At the end of the day, we all need to stretch, strengthen, laugh and bring a bit of zen into our hectic lives.
 

Joanna Collins

 
Joanna Collins was born in Dublin and spent her youth training in London. Her yoga practice stems from a dance background namely classical ballet, contemporary and modern, so her teaching is rooted in an innate and precise sense of physicality. She began to train in India in 2004 where she spent 2 years experiencing yoga as a way of life. Her main practice there was in the Ashtanga Vinyasa tradition, practicing with V. Venkatesh (Atma Vikasa, Mysore) and V. Sheshadri (Mysore Mandala Shala). She gained a teacher training certificate in Yoga Education from Yoga Vidyha Dham Institution and then completed her teacher training in Los Angeles at the renowned Yoga Works studio in Santa Monica with her mentor Annie Carpenter www.Anniecarpenter.com 
 
Joanna has been fortunate to study under many senior teachers including, Chuck Miller and Maty Ezraty, Erik Schiffman,Tias Little and David Swenson. In Dublin, Joanna has studied continuously with her teacher David Curtis and was apprentice to him on the Vinyasa Flow Teacher Training course in 2009.
 
Joanna is specifically drawn to the discipline of Vinyasa Flow Yoga because of the precise alignment and placement it demands on the body and its connection of breath with movement.
 
Now a mother of two, Joanna found how imperative her yoga practice was to her through the challenges of pregnancy and motherhood, and now also teaches both Pre and Postnatal Yoga and Mum and Baby Yoga.

Apple Yu

 
Apple was in search of a practice that would help relieve her bad back pain, after trying a few different things she found that yoga was the best solution. Ever since discovering yoga, she became addicted!

Her hobby grew into a passion and now after years of regular practice, she decided to turn her love into a profession and become a yoga teacher. She has successfully completed 200 hours training with Dave Curtis, and is certified as a Vinyasa Flow Yoga teacher.
 
Apple has recently started practicing shadow yoga with Dave Curtis and Karen Watson, she is hoping that her own practice will in turn both fresh and challenging aspects into her classes.
Level 1-2 classes are for those with some experience of yoga – intermediate and more challenging poses are introduced but variations and modifications will be offered. If you are looking to move beyond your level 1 class, this is for you!
