Olwyn Kearns


Olwyn has been practicing yoga for over 10 years and during that time has embraced how her style has evolved from Ashtanga to Vinyasa Flow. Now she is enjoying the wonderful complement to all her studies that Anusara brings both personally; to her practice and to her teaching.
 
Over the years she has had the good fortune to travel and study with some of the world’s best known teachers. After completing her teacher training in 2004 at Yoga Vidya Dham in India she went on to further her training with Shiva Rea, along the way doing classes and workshops with Pattabhi Jois, Baron Baptiste to name a few.
 
Now a mother to Maia, last minute trips to the US and India have had to end. She couldn’t feel more blessed that so many wonderful teachers are choosing to come to Dublin so her yoga journey can continue.
 
 

Lydia Sasse

 
Lydia did her first yoga class in the Himalayas when she was a little girl and loved it. Yoga has been a life long pursuit, but to give her a greater understanding of how the body works, and why it sometimes doesn’t, Lydia has also trained as a Bowen therapist and completed a diploma in physiology and anatomy. Having spent the last decade working with children and pregnant mums,she decided that working as a pre and post natal yoga teacher was her true calling. Lydia passionately believes that practicing yoga throughout your pregnancy and beyond, strengthens both the mind and body in preparation for labour, and paves the way for a more balanced and healthy life for you and your child.

What is Prenatal Yoga? 
During pregnancy your body goes through many changes, which creates stress on you mentally and physically. A way to maintain a healthy mind and body is prenatal yoga.

Prenatal yoga focuses on poses for pregnant women, in order to increase strength and flexibility.

It also helps pregnant women to develop proper breathing and relaxation techniques for easier and more comfortable labor.

What Are The Benefits Of Prenatal Yoga?

  • Improved sleep
  • Reduced stress
  • Increased strength, flexibility and endurance
  • Decreased lower back pain
  • Decreased nausea
  • Decreased carpal tunnel syndrome
