About Vivien

Vivien trained as a yoga teacher with the British Wheel of Yoga and completed her teaching Diploma (BWY Dip) with Viniyoga tutor Margaret Woodley in 2004. She is also a British Wheel of Yoga Teaching Practice Observer for trainee yoga teachers (TPOT).  She also holds full indemnity insurance through her professional membership of the British Wheel of Yoga.

She started practising yoga in her early twenties and over the years has gone on to explore a wide range of yoga styles, including Iyengar, Hatha, Dru and Viniyoga.  Vivien is also interested in Buddhism and meditation and as a result her teaching style is influenced by a number of schools of yoga but is centred around working mindfully (ie. being aware of how you feel in the here and now). In this way you can work with your body and breath with increased awareness to develop a sense of physical balance and mental harmony.

About Claire

Claire is a qualified Physical Therapist and qualified as a yoga instructor in 2003 completing a two year study program of Yoga Asana, Philosophy and Pranayama with Contemporary Yoga Ireland.  It was in 2006 when she discovered Ayurveda and found that by chance she had been already following the Ayurvedic lifestyle.

Claire could easily spend hours passionately extolling the life changing and healing benefits of yoga and Ayurveda and spend the rest of her life being an eternal student of the body.  However, the sacred healing power of touch and putting her acquired knowledge into practice, drives her on to help resolve chronic issues and bring healing and release to her clients.

More about Claire

Both Vivien and Claire may have some flexibility and are able to cover for each other during any absences, so please just ask when enquiring.
