Richard Ellis is a Qigong instructor and an advanced yin yoga teacher. Qigong is a Chinese system of mindful physical movements related to Tai Chi. It is practised to aid flexibility, mobility,strength and peace of mind. As well as teaching the principles of Qigong Richard will also teach various complete forms during the week.
Janes background is in martial arts … In particular Karate having achieved a 3rd Dan black belt , and being a member of the British team for many years. She practiced yoga throughout her karate career as it complimented her practice and gave her more flexibility and strength not only in body but also in mind . Her daily practice helped her achieve a silver medal in the world championships and also to be 4 times British champion. It was a natural progression on retiring from competition to return to yoga and deciding to qualify to teach .
She choose Zenways to train as she felt the Zen aspect suited her background. Her mentor and teacher Daizan spent 28 years studying Zen yoga in a monastery in Japan . Zen yoga is based on the meridian healing system which links postures to the bodies energy lines…fascinating and powerful.
Classes are challenging but in an accessible way and are definitely fun and friendly.
Jane also has trained with and has a teaching qualification with Danielle Collins .. leading face yoga expert .
And a qualification with “ special yoga” allowing her to teach elderly people and those with special needs.
Last but not least … she is qualified to teach aerial yoga .
