Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Teacher

Jenna Richards, The Exeter Yoga WorkshopMy yoga journey began around 15 years ago when I attend my first class. For a few years I attended occasional classes and workshops, before finding Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga and realising I’d found a lineage that inspired and resonated with me.

I regularly attended led Ashtanga classes for a few years before stepping into my first Mysore style class – and my world changed! The Mysore practice forced me to confront myself on my mat. I began unpeeling the layers of who I was, and who I thought I was, delving deeper and deeper into the spiritual and philosophical side yoga. I soon discovered that once you really start to study yoga the subject grows and grows. You begin to realise yoga isn’t something you do for an hour once a week, it is a philosophy and a lifestyle.

My initial teacher training was with the Devon School of Yoga, I have also completed CPD courses on Yoni Shakti (womb yoga) with Uma Dinsmore-Tuli and Teaching Yoga for Autism and AHDH with the Special Yoga Foundation.

All my classes offer a holistic approach to Hatha Yoga to encourage wellbeing, health, happiness and promote evenness, or equanimity, of mind. Most of my classes are inspired by the Ashtanga Vinyasa practice that changed my life.
