Our Teachers in 2020

Rhiannon Folan

Head Yoga Teacher & Facilitator 2020

Rhiannon discovered yoga whilst studying at university. Her happy place was cycling to her local studio and stepping into warmly lit room, surrounded by the smell of incense and spending the next hour or so working her body and calming her mind. After finishing her degree she wanted to deepen her practice and learn more about the magical universe of yoga in the place it all began, India. In 2017 she completed a 200hr Ashtanga Vinyasa training in Goa and has been teaching full time since. Wanting to explore different approaches to yoga, she completed a 50hr Yin yoga training in Manchester.

Alina Rösken

Workshop & Excursion Guide 2020

In 2018 diving deep into the southeast asian culture she found her passion within Bhakti Yoga, practicing unconditional love, gratitude & devotion eversince. In 2019 she moved to the magical island of Koh Phangan, feeling guided to dance through lush jungles & connect with her inner goddess. This is also where she graduated as a 200 hr yoga teacher of Hatha. From that day onwards she carried her light & joy into several parts of the globe, teaching yoga, manifestation & dance workshops. Alina fell in love with the power of manifestation and the freedom of choice. For her, there is nothing better than helping others to find their inner light, living their most authentic selves.

Tash Neely

Yoga Teacher September 2020

Tashes yoga journey started in 2011. That first class changed her life: she felt calm, clear headed and continued to go every week. After completing her degree, Tash trained to become a secondary school teacher. She says ‘The practice for me was grounding and allowed me to connect with myself, and my students on a deeper level’. In 2017, inspired by her practice and wanting to learn more, Tash took a break from the classroom and completed her 200-Hour Ashtanga Vinyasa training. Since then she has completed a 50-Hour Yin Yoga training, a 30-Hour Yoga Nidra training and multiple workshops on teaching yoga to children. She believes that the benefits of yoga have no age boundaries, and now teaches yoga to schools, adults and children.
