• TEACHERS •
John a certified and direct student of Shri K Pattabhi Jois has been a student of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga since 1987.
During retrospective reverie, John realises that much of his early years at school were spent daydreaming – “eyes fixed out through the window as if travelling to another dimension of reality..”
When does one really start yoga? John questions and believes that once you start to question; where you are, where have you come from, what are you, what are you doing and where are you going? When these questions percolate and bubble to the surface, you become aware you are already on the Journey of enquiry. The enquiry into your true nature and purpose of being here on this physical plane.
It is through the practice of AVY and deep enquiry into the self that John has brought all his earlier experiences and meditations into his life work of sharing. John’s teaching is therefore very metaphorical, analytical, technical and often humorous. His teaching style appeals to students of many backgrounds and nationalities. John remains an avid student of yoga and relationships – fascinated by the linking of different traditions and cultures through symbols, language and the Counted Method of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga.
Actor, Yogini and Singer. Julia began her spiritual journey, first with Iyengar Yoga and Buddhist Meditation.
For 10 years Julia was fully involved in acting life and performed in many Polish and international film projects. This full on self-centred life experience brought her to the point of understanding that something very important was missing, her true self. To feel fulfilled, an inner transformation was necessary. In the moment Julia was introduced to Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, it became so clear to her, that this dynamic practice encompassed an inner journey of self-expression and deep discovery. Julia fully immersed herself in the practice and is today sharing the gems of AVY. While teaching, Julia draws from her multiple disciplines incorporating and integrating relationship skills so that the student feels met, held and supported, allowing for their inner expression to be articulated.
After Sound Meditation Training, frequencies and sound are inseparable elements of her sharing. Julia’s gift is her voice. When joining her in mantra, without realising, the students’ voices begin to harmonise and oneness pervades the space.
The synergy of Julia and Johns’ two energies fuel a collective experience of play, adventure and discovery. Resulting in a sense of deep belonging.
