A good posture is when we can breathe well." Rory is one of Bristols most popular teachers. He has a breadth and wealth of experience, inspired by many systems of hatha yoga, martial arts and radical minds. His extensive and ongoing study with one of the worlds leading and much revered asana teachers, Dona Holleman, continues to elevate and deeply enrich his practice, knowledge and teaching. His in-depth classes seek to reconnect and harmonise body, mind and spirit. The foundation of his philosophy and teaching is rooted in awareness, breath, and an understanding of the physical and subtle bodies. He is passionate about yoga asana in terms of approach, application, technique, form and essence. His classes deliver a deep and strong practise, and can seamlessly accommodate both those newer to yoga through to more long term practitioners and teachers. Rory believes we all have the capacity to find our still point, calm zone and true center, whenever we desire. The aim of his classes is to navigate you there.
