Anna Olsen

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.

Olwyn

Olwyn Kearns

 

Olwyn discovered Yoga in 1997 the first class she ever took was a Rocket Yoga class at It’s Yoga in San Francisco with Larry Schultz they were still calling the class Ashtanga Vinyasa at the time. Although finding herself in an advanced class meant falling over even in basic standing poses she knew she had found what she was looking for.


Years of traveling the world followed; finding the best classes she could, she finally settled on a teacher training in India in 2004. The opportunity to live for a month in an Ashram was too tempting and so worthwhile.

Moving on from there she continued her studies in New York with Shiva Rea, more at Jivamukti, back to India again and again and continued to emerge herself in many styles from Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Shadow, Anusara until now 20+ years later offering a style that brings out the best in all she has learnt.

She still sees herself and probably always will as a student first. The seat of the teacher is not something she ever does or ever will take for granted.

 

Classes are always strong but safe encouraging students to bring out the best of themselves.

Steve Gunn

 

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.

Valerie Klasan

 

Valerie began practicing yoga 14 years ago, and adopted a daily practice after discovering hot
vinyasa in 2015. With the improvements in her desk-job posture and general wellbeing she continues to delight in the study of yoga anatomy and holistic health.

After completing her 200 hour Vinyasa Flow training in 2017 Valerie dove straight into teaching.
In her dynamic classes, she combines asanas and breath to create a choreographed, meditative flow to take her students from high intensity core work to blissful relaxation with a focus on making every student feel good in their skin.


Valerie loves yoga for the way it centres her mind in her body while allowing her to eat another cookie.

Sibylle Dallmann

 

At the heart of every one of my classes lies the intention to inspire you to live life with courage, openness and integrity. It is my hope that each class in its own unique way will offer you a space to slow down, digest life and re-discover the ways in which your own potential is ready to express itself into life.

I believe in a supportive, down-to-earth style of teaching. My classes are slow, precise and meditative. They are physically challenging yet deeply nourishing. I place a high focus on integrating and refining movement, breath and attention to access and birth the beauty that lies within each and every one of us.

I am a student of yoga, philosophy and life for as long as I can remember. I’ve been teaching yoga for the past 12 years throughout which my approach has changed, grown and developed quite organically. However, what has never changed is my awe for life, movement, the human condition and the beauty that can be brought forth from it all.
