Yoga with Alison Jennings – Yoga Starr

A contemporary approach to traditional yoga, this class offers you a chance to strengthen the body, develop breath awareness and settle the mind.

With 16 years of teaching practice Alison will encourage you to embrace the awareness and recognise the shifts, however large or small. Her style is eclectic and her teaching ethos is inclusive. She pays attention to the sustainability of yoga practice, teaching with humour, warmth and compassion.

Whether experienced or a complete newbie to yoga there is a shift in perspective which happens post practice for everyone. Often tiny, occasionally huge, but always there in the background amongst the downward dogs, warriors and savasanas.

Yoga has been part of Alison’s life for over 30 years. She began her yoga journey in a little school hall in South Wales with Pauline Mead in 1989 and it was the spiritual aspect that drew her in. She was intrigued by the sense of calm and stillness that yoga and meditation could offer.

Many years of experience have taken her all over the world, resulting in her practice taking a rich and varied path experiencing several traditions; Iyengar, Sivananda, Ashtanga and Vinyasa flow. More recently the Yin and Scaravelli schools of yoga have influenced her.

Alison qualified to teach with the British Wheel of Yoga certification in 2004 and has continued to deepen her studies and practice ever since the first moment on the mat.

Yoga with Michelle Oliver – Barefoot Yogini

My teaching was born out of my love for yoga and the beautiful and profound personal journey I found myself on. I simply wanted to keep learning and keep sharing the knowledge with as many people as I could. I enjoy teaching people of all ages and abilities as much as I love the challenges that I continue to discover in my own personal practice. It is my hope that through my classes people will also experience the deep joy, serenity and healing that yoga has offered for me.

I trained at the British School of Yoga in 2009 and have been teaching yoga for over 10 years. I travelled to India in November 2014 where I spent a month at the Sivananda Ashram Neyyar Dam, Kerala where I studied Traditional Hatha Yoga and qualified as a Sivananda Teacher. I was honoured to be awarded with the title Yoga Siromani which signifies jewel of the crown of yoga. My teaching also draws upon my experience practicing and studying other styles of Yoga; Ashtanga, Jivamukti, Vinyasa, Kundlini, Dru and Yin.

Like many spiritual practices, yoga is what you make it. You can dedicate yourself to a certain school of yoga and stick with that which I did for many years. Now I am more of an explorer. The world is far too big and diverse to stick with just one way of doing things. I prefer to explore what feeds my body, mind, and spirit, resulting in a holistic approach to yoga!

I draw inspiration for my classes from nature and the seasons. I enjoy exploring how we can adapt our lifestyle and yoga practice in harmony with the rhythm of nature. I also like to connect with my Celtic roots creating themes and weaving in poems and stories from the Celtic world.

What to expect in class

I ensure my yoga classes are accessible for every body! And every body is welcome! My classes are slow paced to create a moving meditation that helps encourage proper breathing, flexibility, strength, and vitality in the body while calming the mind.

A typical class includes pranayama (breathing exercises), warm-ups including adapted and accessible Sun Salutations (Surya Namaskar), Asanas (postures) and deep relaxation.

When practiced regularly, the yoga postures, relaxation and breathing can help us to improve strength, balance, and flexibility as well as general health, well-being, and peace of mind.

When it comes right down to it, yoga is good for you!

Yoga with Leanne – Mesen Yoga

I have been practicing Yoga for most of my adult life, however in 2016 I decided to delve further into this ancient practice. After completing a year’s foundation course and having a break from studying, whilst having and enjoying the first year of my daughter’s life, I then continued with my studies and completed a 13 month Yoga teacher training programme.

Both of my courses were completed in the Om Studio, Cardiff under the guidance of my teacher Yogacharini Kalavathi Devi, a senior teacher from the Gitananda Yoga Parampara (lineage). This tradition of yoga that I teach is a system of Yoga in which the practises work on the eight limbs of Yoga, encompassing all aspects of the self in a step-by-step manner allowing everyone to be included no matter their starting point.

My classes are Hatha based sessions, that work with balancing energy through a series of Jattis (body warm ups), Asanas (physical postures), Kriyas (rhythmic movements with breath), Pranayamas (breathing practices) and Relaxation.
