Yoga 1


This class is taught by:

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.

Aoife Mo Moriarty

As an educator for 20 years, Aoife fell in love with the potential of yoga to bring about personal transformation and wellbeing, different to that which can be achieved in the academic setting of lecture room or classroom. Whether a strong Vinyasa or a static Yin practice, the meditative aspects of the practice are fundamental to how she teaches.

As a published songwriter with an MA in Music Technology, her classes combine a musicological awareness with a dedication to unpack the language of yoga in new and evolving ways. She completed her 200hrs with Sibylle Dallmann and Naomi Sturdy at Yoga Dublin in 2016.

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.

Anna Olsson

 
Anna’s yoga journey started out with lots of intensity and heat, completing her first teacher training with Bikram Choudhury in LA in 2012. What initially attracted her to the practice was its transformational effects on her busy monkey mind, and the mental benefits remain the number one reason why she comes to the mat. The rest – strength/flexibility/improved energy levels/injury prevention etc etc – are just really nice side effects!
 
She has taught on a fulltime basis for the past 5 years, branching out in styles and getting particularly hooked on Ashtanga yoga. She completed her 200 hours Ashtanga Vinyasa Training with It’s Yoga Nicaragua in 2015 and is currently working to build up to her 500h certification with It’s Yoga Fuerteventura, specializing in Rocket Yoga which has its roots in Ashtanga but with an added playfulness!
 
As much as she loves a strong asana practice, she also takes an interest in Buddhist meditation, Vipassana and Yoga Nidra and facilitates workshops in the latter since completing her Yoga Nidra Teacher Training Course with Nirlipta Tuli & Uma Dinsmore-Tuli of Wombyoga in the summer of 2017. Anna recently made her first trip to Mysore, India, where she spent a month practicing the dynamic Prana Vashya yoga with Yogacharya Vinay Kumar. She draws her inspiration to teach from her own personal practice and passion for the yoga and believes that constant learning and immersion in various types and styles and practices with different teachers is key.
 
Teaching means sharing what we know; inspiring others to reach their full potential and holding a safe and secure space for students within which the magic of self-realization through yoga can take place.

Phoebe H Higson

Phoebe was first introduced to yoga in 2012 whilst training at The Oxford School of Drama. It was a vital tool for connecting mind and body at the start of each day and she really felt the difference on the days I didn't practise. She was hooked after that, and yoga become a huge part of her life, changing and guiding her towards being my happiest, healthiest self, both mentally and physically. I knew this was going to be a lifelong love and as a natural teacher, the step towards taking her teacher training was an inevitable one, even though it took a lot of courage to get my there. She trained in Frog and Lotus Vinyasa Flow, which is creative, with a strong emphasis on breathwork, alignment and adjustments, all of which she has developed into her own teaching.
