Venetia- Never before have I considered flying nearly 5000 miles to train with someone…. however when that someone is Bernie Clark, and he’s running a yin teacher training only at his home studio in Vancouver, I think you make an exception!
Yoga makes the world better, lighter, happier...Yoga Quota is playing a lovely part in sharing yoga with everyone and i would love to be part of that.
Yoga has changed my life for the better - I firmly believe that the practice of yoga can benefit anyone and everyone and should be accessible to all.
I am strong believer that yoga is for everyone and Yoga Quota's mission is exactly this, to bring yoga to every individual, no matter the background and make practising yoga accessible to all.
Catherine discovered yoga in 2007 through the performing arts where sun salutations and pranayama techniques were included in the daily warm-up. Since then yoga has been a loyal companion, offering balance and serenity in a busy academic and professional life.
Seeing the benefits this lifestyle has offered her, she set off to complete her Yoga Alliance RYT200 training in Goa, India where she trained in Ashtanga Vinyasa and immersed herself in the world of Ayurveda, Pranayama and Yogic philosophy. Catherine now seeks to share this practice as part of the Yoga Quota charity, giving the gift of yoga to the unexpecting by designing accessible, inclusive and mindful classes to encourage students to cultivate compassion and love, for the self and for others.
I would LOVE to come to one of Hannah's yoga classes where the self proclaimed Wave Junkie is playing this accordian-type-funky-instrument-thing! Our charity partners in Cornwall are so LUCKY!
Welcome Hannah to the Yoga Quota team! If you all want to check her out she is in Cornwall and her bio on our teacher page has the link to her site :)
Yoga Quota is now working with the (mostly US based) Accessible Yoga trust. Our missions align pretty much exactly- to make yoga accessible for vulnerable people. So me and Liz who is the UK person are chatting about how to work together. I'm envisaging a great support network for all our badge holders (teachers across the UK who do charity work for Yoga Quota) and also when I get a request for a charity class in some far flung area of the UK a network of friendly yoga teachers who might be able to become a badge holder and do that class!
Match made in heaven!
Watch this space for how it all goes :)
