Pauline Gibbons RYS500+
I first studied Vinyasa flow and Hatha Yoga with YogaWorks in the beautiful setting of Bali and have gone to take many additional trainings with world renowned teachers on many aspects of yoga and anatomy. I trained to teach the fun and liberating Aerial Yoga with the Chakra Aerial Yoga school in Carlisle back in 2012. I love to teach a flowing, challenging class with focus on breathing and alignment which is suitable for everyone.
“I love seeing people who come to her
classes gradually de-stress and find balance”
Originally qualifying as a personal trainer in 2003 through Premier International I started practicing Yoga soon after. My career has taken me to many varied places including teaching for almost 3 years in the Middle East. First drawn to Yoga to compliment the other forms of exercise I was teaching I soon fell in love with Yoga and decided I wanted it to become my main focus.
I love seeing people who come to my classes gradually de-stress and find balance not only in their bodies but also in their lives. Taking the calm time spent on the mat with them to create a calm approach to work and life in general.
I attended my first yoga class in 2014, initially out of curiosity, but, after leaving the class in a deeply relaxed state, felt I was on to something, and began practicing regularly.
“I actively encourage self-exploration and
self-expression through intuitive movement”
Fast forward a few years of consistent practice, and I enrolled in a 10-month 200-hour Yoga Teaching Training course with CAMYOGA, which I completed in the summer of 2019. In early 2020, I went on to study Advanced Assists and Touch Methodology (50hr) with Sunday School Yoga and am currently participating in Liberate, a 6-month mentorship programme with Naomi Absalom.
Whether I’m teaching a flow class, or a gentler practice, my focus is on empowering each student to fully inhabit their experience, be present with their bodies and anything else that may arise on the mat. I actively encourage self-exploration and self-expression through intuitive movement, to make each practice unique to the practitioner, fine tune our awareness and, ultimately, connect to Truth. Expect a breath centred and creative practice, accompanied by some funky, and soothing, beats.
I first trained as a dancer in classical ballet and danced professionally.
“I was mesmerized at the positive rewards I
gained physically, emotionally and spiritually”
I then joined the fast pace and ever growing fitness industry and have been teaching for over 20 years.
I started practicing yoga and was mesmerized at the positive rewards I gained physically, emotionally and spiritually, so went on to teach yoga after RYS200 training at Hot Zen Yoga Studios.
My experience teaching in fitness has certainly had an influence on my yoga teaching style. I am always amazed at how I have learnt to accept savasana!
Yoga has been a part of my life for over a decade now and as with many people, I started to practice yoga when I was at a crossroads in my life.
“By practising yoga it gave me a safe space in
which I could leave any stresses at the door.”
By focusing on my mind and body, it allowed me to relax whilst also contributing to maintain a healthy lifestyle and keeping fit.I was privileged to immerse myself in my training on the beautiful tropical island of Koh Phangnan in Thailand, famed for its yoga and healing centres. It gave me a life experience like no other. I stayed on the island for sometime and enjoyed teaching there looking out over the ocean or across the mountains from the yoga shala. Bringing this experience home with me I now teach Vinyasa, Power Flow, Hatha and Yin.
My style can vary depending on the energy of the class, I like to see how people are feeling and create a sanctuary where you will have the best practice on your mat. I am also a Reiki Practitioner and believe that Prana (energy) needs to flow deeply and freely through our bodies, removing any blocks so that we can relieve stress, increase immunity and enhance our general wellbeing. With that in mind I like to create a practice which allows any blocks to open gently and bring you an overall sense of full body, mind and soul recharge after every class.
See you on the mat!
Yoga and meditation continue to exist as ever present anchors for me in all stages and phases of life.
“I love passing on my knowledge and passion to help others“
Originally from South West Ireland I began my career as a professional classical singer at the age of 14 and in 2002 moved to London to pursue my dreams of becoming a performer in London’s West End.
Having spent over 10 wonderfully crazy years working as a professional dancer, singer and actress; the highly competitive and sometimes stressful industry left me longing for a deeper meaning and purpose in life, and so I eventually surrendered to my love and curiosity of all things yoga and meditation.
In August 2019 I travelled to Bali to complete my 200hr Ashtanga Vinyasa teacher training and was teaching full time counted Ashtanga and Vinyasa private and corporate classes upon returning to the uk.
Yoga and meditation continue to exist as ever present anchors for me in all stages and phases of life. I love passing on my knowledge and passion to help others discover this powerful life tool for themselves.
I started yoga to compliment my martial arts training at the suggestion of my Sensei.
“Yoga was also my introduction to the art of
hand balancing, which i am a keen practitioner of!”
I am a Black Belt and qualified instructor in contact karate and kickboxing. Yoga has been a hugely beneficial part of my training and preparation, both physical and mental, for the many gradings and competitions that i used to do. Yoga was also my introduction to the art of hand balancing, which I am a keen practitioner of!
I qualified as a Yoga teacher in 2019 after studying in Rishikesh, India. I teach an Ashtanga Vinyasa class here at Tring Yoga Studio loosely structured around the Ashtanga Primary Series but influenced by others styles of yoga which i practice.
My aim is to help students progress in their asana practice. To help develop their strength and flexibility. My class offers a chance to work towards some of the more challenging postures in a playful and supportive environment.
I am a Hathalini yoga + meditation teacher and lifestyle coach whose focus is on helping others to live blissful, bountiful and beautiful lives.
“I am also a prose-poet + deeply interested in
heartfelt conversations + growth with others.”
I have nearly a decade of experience working in the corporate world and understands what it means to be under pressure and stressed out.
I also understands what it means to change this mindset into something more powerful and meaningful. I use my experience to deliver practical and spiritual tools and tips to help people reach their fullest potential. This can range from goal-setting, habit-creating and organisation skills through to Hathalini yoga, relaxation and deep spiritual wisdom.
