Paul has performed most of his life on stage as a professional dancer and singer.
His passion for yoga came a bit later and he instantly fell in love with not just the asana practice but the great lessons it has taught; Living Life with purpose, gratitude, love, compassion, and patience, letting go of attachment and expectations.
Tony grew up in New Zealand and was first introduced to yoga in 2008 to help to balance his stressful corporate work, and his fitness and rock climbing training when he moved to London. But it wasn't until 2019 when he made the yoga practice a part of his daily life and started to understand the true journey of the yogi.
Conleth started his yoga journey in 2007. He immediately went straight for the hot, Bikram (now known as "26x2 Yoga") option and has never looked back. He was hooked and has been practicing regularly ever since. His main reason for starting yoga was to 'lose a bit of weight', but quickly discovered the huge amount of mental benefits that came with being a yogi.
Peter fell in love with yoga 23 years ago when he lived in San Francisco and observed a group of yogis practicing with such inspiring grace and integrity early in the morning during a burning man festival in the Nevada desert. He practices a combination of yoga, meditation and drawing as a daily ritual and is influenced by traditions such as ashtanga, vinyasa flow, yoga nidra (sleep yoga), Buddhist meditation, restorative and yin yoga, somatic yoga, mindfulness and neo tantra.
Gérard is a French man who decided to move and live in the UK 6 years ago.
It was during a retreat that he first discovered the Yoga practice. At the start it was for him a nice way to work out, then he found out the benefits of the practice on his daily life too and quickly Yoga became a passion. The practice has supported him on many levels and he feels a strong sense of responsibility to share.
Stefan has been an active yogi since 2004, having discovered the powerful physical and spiritual practice after a serious running injury. He completed his yoga teacher certification (RYT 200) in mid-2017. He believes that, through yoga, everyone can tap into the energy and awareness contained within.
