When she got pregnant she became a Yoga Alliance and Sitaram Certified Instructor in Pregnancy Yoga training with Uma Dinsmore-Tuli.
 
After experiencing the benefits of yoga in her life before, during and after pregnancy and labour, she was determined to ensure her kids would get into yoga earlier in life. Ana completed her Rainbow Kids and Family Teacher Training.
 
Teaching kids and family yoga has been a joy! Kids are such amazing teachers and they keep you on your toes!
 
She loves bringing aspects of her pregnancy, kids and family yoga into her vinyasa classes to make them fun and different!
 
I will always be a student of the practice and am deeply grateful for the loving wisdom my teachers have shared with me.
Murielle & Sebastian .
Murielle Burellier

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.

Combining western anatomy and meridians theory approach, the practice of Yin Yoga comes to be a potent healing, and psycho-spiritual system.

John McGuire
 
John's yoga journey commenced in 1999 when he was on the brink of having to have major back surgery as a result of disc, trapped nerve problems caused by a bad fall while playing squash. The chances of a successful outcome were not good and, as a last resort, the Sports Injury Consultant recommended a three month programme of intensive traction which luckily reduced the pressure on the nerves very considerably …. and to an extent with which he could live. The Consultant recommended that he practice Pilates intensively to strengthen his abdominal muscles so as to provide a corset of protection for my lower back and spine.
 
He attended Pilates classes at the Westwood Gym in Leopardstown and they worked wonders in terms of me building up a strong core. At around that time, the Gym started to offer yoga classes which he attended out of curiosity and began to practice with his very first yoga teacher, the wonderful Yvonne Treacy. For a time, he continued with the Pilates but then migrated totally to yoga. While working in Smithfield, he started to attend yoga classes in the Elbow Room where he came in contact with a number of inspirational teachers such as Dave Curtis, Anthony Kearney and Tanya Fitzpatrick.
 
In 2009, John changed his work place to South Dublin and joined Yoga Dublin in Ranelagh where Dave Curtis and Anthony Kearney were also teaching. In 2013, he decided to participate in a three-year Teacher Training Programme under the guidance of Dave Curtis and was delighted to become a certified teacher in 2016.
 
During his two decade yoga journey, John has practiced Hatha, Ashtanga, Vinyasa and more recently, Shadow Yoga. He is delighted to be still practicing week in week out with Yvonne, Dave and Anto.

Leanne Cummins
 
Leanne started pole dancing around five years ago. Initially she took it up as a way to have a bit of random fitness fun as well as doing something for herself by herself./ She immediately loved it but took a break to live abroad and finish studying. When she came back to pole she realized that for her it would be best to go to class more than once a week, so she went looking for other studios and classes. This is when things became serious for her! She began working hard on her strength and flexibility, taking as many classes as she could, focusing on being a better poler.
 
Somehow she worked up the courage to compete in Pole Princess Ireland 2013. This competition is perfect for anyone looking to compete for the first time – and Leanne won in the Intermediate Category! She quickly found her own style, performed in The George and at charity events, for music videos, with live bands, filming show reels and photo shoots. She went on to compete in Pole Theatre Ireland 2014, and UKAPP 2014 (where she won the title of Semi-Pro Champion – still one of her favorite routines!), and Pole Theatre Ireland 2015 (where she won the Professional Drama category).
 
Competitions have always given her something to work towards, but when she started teaching she began loving pole in a whole new way. Being able to pass on any knowledge that she has is amazing to her, and she found herself growing and improving in ways that she hadn’t done as a student. She took the Xpert Instructor Training Course which had a huge impact on the way she perceived instructing for pole. For her now pole is definitely about instructing others as much as training herself.
 
Her personal style of pole has been described as “pretty-freaky” – she
definitely like to create characters and use her flexibility to make things quite weird! But she loves strength moves too, and a balance of both is what she am working towards. There is so much strength in flexibility anyway, and so much beauty in all styles of pole dance that she would never want to limit myself to any one or two ways of moving.
 
When Leanne is not pole dancing she's usually thinking about pole, or talking about it. Or saving photos and videos to try later. She also loves to read and watch films – she's actually a huge nerd and can often be found reading a book while waiting for a movie to start! She's a big pole nerd too, she usually knows who did what is which competition and what song they used too. Pole has really changed her life – before she took it up she was incredibly unhealthy and extremely underweight. All of that has changed, and on the way she has met many incredible people, and learnt a lot about herself and others. Leanne hopes it can do amazing things for you too.
Elaine McGovern
 
Elaine discovered yoga in 2004 and has been a passionate and avid practitioner for the past 13 years. She completed her 200 hours teacher training in 2016 with Naomi Sturdy and Sibylle Dallman at YogaDublin. She believes that yoga is a lifetime practice which provides many benefits in our everyday life. Her teaching practice focuses on creating a deep connection with the body and exploring the physical and mental space that can be accessed on the mat.
Linda Delaney
 
Linda took her first yoga class over 10 years ago, on advice from her physiotherapist, to work on relaxing her muscles and fell in love with the movement, breath and focus of yoga. She describes finding yoga as her "light bulb moment".

Along with her regular practice, Linda attended numerous yoga retreats around the world and following an amazing retreat in Bali she decided to become a yoga teacher. She completed her 200 hour training with The YogaHub here in Dublin and also qualified as a prenatal yoga teacher with barefoot yoga in Lucan.
 
Linda's energy is in her laugh and her smile and she brings a light heartiness and ease to her classes while also focusing on the dynamics of strength and flexibility in the practice.
 
Through her own journey, Linda believes in the power that yoga brings to healing the body and relaxing the mind.
 
Helene Kamalandua
 
Helene holds a Master’s degree in Food Science and Nutrition from the University of Dijon, France. She has been teaching Nutrition for two years and Anatomy and Physiology for nine years. She is passionate about empowering people to make the right food choices to lead healthful lives.
 
Teaching Anatomy and Physiology and Nutrition allows her to remain up to date with the latest research in these fields, and this informs both her practice and her teaching.
 
We have to eat at least three times a day and this should be an enjoyable experience, that also ensures we remain healthy. However, in the rush of life and at a time when we are confronted with many mixed messages about nutrition and health, this is not always the case.
 
Some small changes to our diet can make an incredible difference to our energy levels and help us to enjoy life to the full.

She started teaching Pilates in 2009 in Dublin in various gyms, in studios and private classes. She has empathy and understanding for each pupil individually and a great will to help each person to improve their fitness level. Qualified with BBU in Mat & Reformer Pilates 2009.
