Brian is a yoga and breathwork teacher based in Dublin. Brian undertook his teacher training in Goa, India, studying extensively the lineages of Hatha, Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Iyengar and Therapeutic yoga. His yoga classes are breath-focused, and based on alignment and conscious movement, while also encouraging students to intuitively explore the uniqueness of their own bodies and practice.
He also teaches breathwork classes, where the focus is on developing a deeper relationship to the breath and connecting to its natural power as a tool for healing, transformation and relaxation. Brian believes that by consciously and compassionately connecting with the body and breath, they can begin to act as an anchor into the present, creating greater clarity and awareness, and allowing access to a simpler flow of life.
Suzanne completed her own 200-hour teacher training at yogahub in 2016, developing a strong love for continuous education within the practice.
After subsequent advanced trainings in Ashtanga, Rocket Yoga and Yin Yoga, she has become a certified 500RYT under Yoga Alliance; she has managed, led and taught multiple trainings at yogahub over the past number of years.
Gracie’s yoga journey began in her late teenage years. She discovered it was a quiet space. Breath awareness was a priority, and after no time she felt a sense of calm she hadn’t known before.
She trained for her 200-hour Ashtanga-vinyasa YTT in Cadiz, in the south of Spain. After her initial training, she went on to train in Yin yoga, a very intimate and special practice. From there, she studied MBSR (mindfulness-based stress reduction).
She tries to incorporate awareness, breathwork and a flowing physical asana practice into her classes. Her hope is that students leave the studio feeling a little less heavy in their minds and open throughout their bodies.
She is trained in kids and teen yoga, and teaches regularly in secondary schools. She is forever expanding her knowledge, and has taken trainings with David Kyle, Michael James Wong, Hiro Landazuri, Sam Vetrano, Irene Pappas, Jamie Clarke, Dulce Aguilar, Josh Summers and Adam Husler. She is passionate about the power of community, connection and activism through yoga.
Rohan has been a full-time yoga teacher for over twenty years and has been training teachers for more than a decade. Originally qualified in Iyengar yoga and influenced by the Ashtanga and Vinyasa styles, his teaching is based on traditional alignment and fundamentals, which are constantly evolving with experience and intuition.
Con began practising meditation in 2009 to help him manage a fear of public speaking. Meditation was a gateway to explore other practices like yoga and breathwork.
A desire to teach started to seed and take root in his early 20s, and during a few years of working in more conventional corporate roles he continued to deepen his practice in his spare time. By 2019 he had completed over 500 hours of yoga teacher training and an MSc in Mindfulness-Based Interventions from UCD. In 2021 he completed a trauma-sensitive mindfulness training, which has been a valuable addition to his skill set.
Con’s approach to meditation is multi-layered. Every part of his teaching is grounded in intention. At one level he focuses on nervous system regulation and empowering people to find their own ways to resource and ground. On another level he focuses on how to nurture a kinder relationship with self. And on a deeper level he invites people into a process of self-discovery, getting to know themselves in a more intimate way. The most common feedback he receives is that his presence is very calming and grounding.
Jess Gormley oversees our Pilates Teacher Training Program at yogahub.
With over a decade of practice and six years’ teaching experience, Jess is passionate about Pilates and passing that passion onto others. She believes a strong understanding of the Pilates principles and repertoire, combined with an understanding of how the body moves and why we utilise each exercise, is key to becoming a confident and creative teacher.
Since qualifying from her initial training, she has broadened her knowledge and skill set, training in pre- and post-natal Pilates, the Pink Ribbon Breast Cancer Programme and barre.
