Murielle’s yoga journey began in London early 90’s when she discovered a old yoga book in a second hand shop. It ignited a deep interest for this practice that led to attending regular classes over the years experimenting with different styles like Hatha, Iyengar and Prana Flow, she certified as a Yoga Teacher in 2004 at International Sivananda Vedanta Yoga Ashram.
She first came across Yin Yoga in London first attending a class of Sarah Powers in 2006, then took a longer training with Victor Chng in 2009 and later studied with Paul and Suzee Grilley (Initiators of Yin Yoga) in Singapore, Kho Samui and California deepening her understanding and practice in this form of yoga, she still develops and expands her knowledge on the spiritual path with her natural and discerning intuition.
She is naturally drawn to a meditative and contemplative approach, after studying Vajrayana“The Diamond Way” for over 5 years in London, Murielle feel innately connected to the Buddha's teaching rather than any particular school, adopting the practice of Yin Yoga to implement her aspiration and research on the spiritual path. Her approach is gentle and compassionate focusing on the breath, letting go and letting be, which encompasses so well the essence of the Yin-Yoga practice.
She has also studied Prenatal Yoga with Pujiastuti Sindhu and offers a safe class environment to bring a sense of well being and connection during this important transition time of childbearing.
Based in between South-East Asia and Europe Murielle has been teaching for the past years in different Yoga venues to students from all walks of life and co-teaches with Sebastian in all the different Yoga events.
Studying Yoga since 1995, his personal journey through Yoga started with Ashtanga, Hatha and Yin-Yoga.
For the past 3 decades, Sebastian has practiced Martial Art, Shiatsu, Yoga and Meditation, refining and stabilizing his research to the study of Yin-Yoga as a foundation, to sustain and promote a holistic life-style. Combining western anatomy and meridians theory approach, the practice of Yin Yoga comes to be a potent healing, and psycho-spiritual system.
Discovering Yin Yoga in London with Sarah Powers in 2006 at Triyoga Studio, Sebastian was inspired to integrate a more contemplative/meditative mind in his Yoga Practice, in 2009 he came across the training and engaging work of Victor Chng, consolidating his interest in the learning of the quiet practice. For the past years Sebastian continues his study under the prominent expertise and fun-loving teaching of Paul & Suzee Grilley (Initiators of Yin-Yoga).
Sebastian’s teaching is enhanced by 8 years of experience as a body therapist (qualified Shiatsu practitioner) and Martial art, (nidan in Taido, Japanese Martial art).
Another major influence is until now the study of Buddhism. His main enthusiasm since 2002 is the practice of Vipassana (Goenka Style) and Samatha Meditation (Ayya Khema & Pak Auk Sayadaw Method) or concentration meditation. (Tina Rasmussen & Stephen Snyder) as well as exploring Samatha from a Tibetan Buddhist approach, with practices such as Settling the Mind in his natural state or Awareness of Awareness (Alan Wallace).
Steve had been practicing Yoga for a number of years and decided to spend a month in India and complete a 200hour teacher training course in Sampoorna Yoga School in Agonda, Goa in January 2016.
This was one of the best decisions Steve ever made and being immersed in Yoga every day was a perfect way to spend a month. The weather and the beach was nice too.
Steve mainly studied Ashtanga and Vinyasa flow spending time on Alignment Anatomy and philosophy too.
On Steve’s return he developed a strong hour long flow which builds to a peak and gradually eases into a relaxing finish.
Steve kept up his teaching practice with family and friends since his return and teaches a Vinyasa class in the Trinity College Gym on Tuesday evenings, a lunch time class with Probabtion officers in Mount Joy Prison on Thursday afternoons occasional cover classes in The Elbow Room and has a number of private clients.
