February 2017: First Yoga Teacher Training In India
I began my own yoga practice about in 2013 when I had a sore back and I couldn't even reach my toes, I've come a long way since then. I started online videos and attended many local yoga classes in Newry and all of those inspired me to become a Yoga Teacher. I seen how yoga can help people and I wanted to share the benefits and show how yoga can help them better. I tried different types of yoga, pilates and other modalities. I done my research and I went to Kranti Yoga in Goa, India where I completed my 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training in Ashtanga Yoga and Vinyasa Flow.
I started teaching beginners yoga classes in Newry, my local area, and enjoyed it so much I went back to India the following year keen to learn more. I then completed a 300 hour Yoga Teacher Training in Ashtanga Yoga, Vinyasa Flow and Myofascia Release allowing me to teach Ashtanga Primary Series, Pranayama, Meditation, Kriyas and Myofascia Release Techniques. I stayed in Goa, in India, for an additional month to teach Yoga Classes. I completed another 100 hour course in Romania, Inspiring the Yoga Teacher, and went on many yoga retreats and classes in different countries.
If anyone is interested in becoming a Yoga Teacher, my teacher in India, Julia Gavin, is highly recommended. Check out her current teacher trainings in Goa:
I have reached the experienced teacher level with Yoga Alliance UK which requires over 2000 hours and 4 years of teaching yoga. I am teaching beginners yoga classes and ashtanga yoga in person and now online also. I am grateful for all those that have showed up to any of my classes and want to thank you all for sharing your yoga practice with me. I like to make people feel welcome to my classes and like to create a relaxing atmosphere in a non-judgemental environment.
Everyone is welcome, please book in or get in touch to find out more.
