Having experienced the incredible benefits of yoga and the life changing impact it had on her life, she became deeply motivated to become a yoga teacher so she could pass on these good feelings to those around her through this ancient tradition. She decided to take some time away from her career as a designer and flew to Rishikesh, India where she completed her first formal yoga training. She received 200hrs YTT in Hatha Vinyasa and Ashtanga Vinyasa in 2016.
Gemma-Rose continues to develop her knowledge of yoga, both as a practitioner and as a teacher. Her attitude towards yoga is always the same - “My intention is to help people feel good about themselves.”
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.
Aislin’s vinyasa classes emphasize a balance of strengthening and softening using the breath as a guide. She encourages her students to challenge themselves in discovering how the practice of yoga revitalizes and restores the body, the heart, and the mind.
Aislin’s yin classes center around the idea of anatomical uniqueness, and use the experience of lengthening the fascia to infuse the body with breath and poetry.
Aislin studied under the guidance of Corina Benner for her 250 hour Vinyasa Teacher Training, and Yin Yoga Teacher Training.
