Our Teachers

22 Mansfield Street – Studio 7 – G11 5QP

 

Our teachers at Yoga Healing Glasgow have come together through their own personal yoga journeys. This has forged a strong foundation in our approach which can be felt in the continuity of our teaching.

Our students can easily move between our classes and teachers or they can stick to one teacher. There really isn’t any hard rules, only personal preference. Below you can read more about our teachers and how we can support you on your yoga journey.

 

Daily & Founder of  Yoga Healing Glasgow

Anthea Simpson      

AntheaWidget

Anthea saw very young that yoga can be part of your everyday life. Her mum started yoga when she was pregnant with Anthea and through Anthea’s formative years she began to see through others what benefits yoga can bring. In the early 90’s Anthea started going to different yoga, dance and movement classes, but it wasn’t until 2000 when Anthea’s father died that she personally experienced the profound support yoga can bring.

Anthea considers 2000 the year she found yoga, and holds June Mitchell and Gerry Keilty very dear to her heart for mentoring her to this place. After a matter of weeks with June and Gerry Anthea began her daily yoga practice, and it wasn’t long until she began her Yoga Teacher Training with June Mitchell and Julie Hanson (CYS Scotland) and qualified in 2004. Over these years Anthea continued to work within the Well Being industry and with clients on a 1-2-1 basis, before opening and developing Spas around the UK and training therapists in Massage and Spa Therapy. She went to every workshop going and also studied Aromatherapy, Reflexology, Natural Nutrition, Ayurvedic Therapies, Reiki and The Metamorphic Technique.

In 2004 through to spring 2005 Anthea continued her training in India and Thailand, which included deepening her own personal yoga practice with Pattabhi Jois, Rolf & Marcy Naujokat and going to Prana Nature Cure Yoga Hospital in Tamil Nadu where she learned about the administration of yoga therapies, kriyas (cleansing techniques) meditation and pranayama (breath-work) techniques for therapeutic benefits.

On her return to the UK Anthea hand-picked the space of Yoga Healing Glasgow to teach from, which was previously known as Bodysense. When Bodysense closed in 2009 Anthea took over the space with the support of Regeneration Glasgow and in January 2010 Yoga Healing Glasgow was born.

Claire Rodgers

claire rodgers

Claire began attending Hatha yoga classes whilst studying and working in mental health and Clinical Psychology, London, over twenty years ago. She was amazed at the benefits yoga brought to both physical well-being and peace of mind, and was lucky to begin attending workshops and retreats with her teacher’s teacher Swami Dharmananda Saraswati, early in her yoga journey.

On returning to Scotland, she continued her career in mental health, designing and facilitating a range of courses and classes to manage stress and improve emotional and physical well-being. She also continued to attend yoga, studying with Fiona Morton, before training with Yoga Scotland, completing the foundation course and two year teacher training in 2005. Since then she has continued to teach, study and practise, studying restorative yoga with Judith Lasater, training to teach meditation with Swami Saradananda, and to teach Pranayama with Philip Xerri. She has also deepened her understanding of working with the energy or subtle body, training in Reiki, and co-authoring her first book Awakening the Chakras through Yoga.

She is currently training in Yoga Therapy, with Sue McLennan and the Scottish School of Yoga Therapy, deepening her experience and knowledge of using yoga techniques and practises to work on a 1-2-1 basis, and combining this training with her mental health, Psychology and Reiki background, to provide tailored and holistic 1-2-1 therapy, delighted to be part of Yoga Healing Glasgow.

Kerry Stewart

Kerry is currently on maternity leave and her classes are being taught by Pam.

Kerry started Pilates whilst working in an office and was suffering from common lower back pain associated with long hours spent at a desk. Having found that Pilates relieved her back pain and increased her overall feeling of well being, she decided to train as a Pilates teacher and to learn why and how the method worked so well. Once Kerry completed the course she couldn’t wait to share the exercises with others and still enjoys teaching as much as when she started! Kerry has a Mat Pilates (Level 3) CYQ Central YMCA qualification and continues her development through various Hanson Pilates workshops (Ante and Post Natal Pilates and Modifying Original Moves) and the APPI’s (The Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute) Small Equipment and Shoulder Rehabilitation training courses

Colin is our resident body-worker and has been practising yoga since 1999, his yoga is inspired by Vanda Scarinvelli, as he see’s the benefits of yoga though the eyes of a manual therapist. His teaching is focused on the functionality of movement and structural integration. He is the man to see if you are participating in a sporting event, recovering from pain or dysfunction, want to improve your game or looking to prevent injury by increasing your range of movement. Colin is down to earth and supportive to his students, if you are new to yoga or have been practising for a while. He enjoys teaching the benefits of movement by bringing strength to weakness and flexibility to tension. Colin believes that yoga should be an enjoyable experience and by cultivating a relationship between the body and the mind we can create harmony.
