Lucybloom Webb

Lucybloom found Yoga many years ago while living a hectic lifestyle in London.  After years as a make-up artist in the demanding world of tv and film, she decided to spend some time in India and trained as a Yoga Teacher. She has been teaching ever since and continues to deepen her knowledge of both Yoga and Ayurveda.
 
Her style of teaching is heavily influenced by her own ashtanga practice - a strong vinyasa style. The focus of her classes is to use the breath as a focus to leave the overactive mind and drop into the body, encouraging you to seek your own truth beneath the chatter and influence of the mind.

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.

 

Michelle E Egan

 
Michelle was introduced to yoga while on a tennis scholarship in America in the mid 90’s. At the time yoga was largely unheard of in Ireland but she recognised its benefits to athletes in prevention of injury and also building up strength and confidence within. It was several years later while working in media in London that Michelle was reintroduced to yoga. She made the decision to train as a yoga instructor and completed her training in Hatha yoga in 2006.

Michelle’s teaching places emphases on a deep connection with the breath, stillness and clarity of the mind, strength, balance and a mindful flow of movement. She teaches dynamic and gentle classes depending on the needs of her classes Michelle is also a qualified prenatal, mum and baby yoga and kids yoga teacher.

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.

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.
 

Niamh P Pollins

Niamh is an avid yogi! She first started practicing yoga in 2011 but rediscovered her love for yoga in 2014 while living and working in New York. Yoga allowed her to switch off from the hustle and bustle that was New York. After two years of traveling and working abroad Niamh returned home to the Emerald Isle and completed her 200hrs RYT Training under the guidance of Sibylle Dallmann and Naomi Sturdy at Yoga Dublin.

Niamh has an invested interest in Human and Women's Rights. She is passionate about making the world a more peaceful place, and feels that yoga and meditation are important factors in achieving that goal.

Niamh’s classes are based on the belief that mental and physical health is interrelated and should be conditioned together. Her classes focus on all aspects of yoga, pranayama and Meditation. Join Niamh for some Hatha, Vinyasa and Restorative based Classes!

Level 2 classes are designed to take you deeper into your practice by introducing asanas which will challenge you equally on strength & flexibility, so you can discover true harmony in body & mind.

Each class combines a dynamic asana practice with meditation, hands-on alignment, basic yoga philosophy, deep relaxation…and some good sounds!

As we suggest more challenging variations as your practice develops, this is a great place for you to laugh, play and grow in your own time.
 
Not suitable for beginners.
