JOE O'GORMAN - (Trainer and Owner)
Fully insured member of the national register of personal trainers.
Qualified British Olympic weightlifting coach
After working in a genetics laboratory for 5 years I decided to take the plunge and follow my passion into the fitness industry, I have never looked back. From standard gym classes helping me de-stress during my studies and previous job to competing in CrossFit competitions, fitness has always been apart of my life.
I am a Level 2 Fitness Instructor, Level 3 personal Trainer, Crossfit Level 1 Trainer and Pre and Post Natal Exercise qualified.
My aim is to find a training style that you will enjoy, is effective and that works for you. I have worked with a mix of clients from ladies 1 week off giving birth to office workers who want to gain muscle for a summer holiday. I’m friendly and keen for a laugh and joke but when we need to get down to business the game face is on!
YOUR YOGA INSTRUCTORS
Yoga for me means freedom, on and off the mat. Yoga leaves me with an inner sense of balance and joy that I get from nothing else I do. I come to Yoga to meet myself with kindness, love and of course some challenge! The union between mind, body and breath. My goal is to share this magic with everyone who wishes to give it a go.
Charlotte started studying yoga 7 years ago as a way of managing stressful employment within the social care sector. She fell in love with the way it helped balance her mind and soon noticed the physical benefits it had on her body, following many previous injuries caused by long distance running.
Maria's yoga journey began 15yrs when she attended an Iyengar class in Dublin. However, it was many years later after moving to London she developed a regular yoga practice and undertook a 200hr Hatha training in 2015 with Eleonara Herrera Ramsby. Maria has since trained In Vinyasa flow with Mimi Kuo Deemer (Triyoga) and Restorative Yoga with Judith Hanson Lasater (The Life Centre).Maria has a focused approach to alignment using props to ensure the body is safely supported in all postures. Maria believes yoga is for everybody no matter what age, physical physique or injuries you may have. Maria has a keen interest in the healing abilities of yoga and is also trained as an energy healer. Having experienced the benefits of a slower practice Maria is a keen advocate for Restorative yoga and teachers on Sunday afternoons.
Brenda fell in love with yoga 4 years ago in the UK after moving from France for a work opportunity. She discovered it in Farnham where she met a beautiful local community. She followed Julie Montagu's 200 hours Vinyasa Teacher Training course.
Brenda truly believes that Yoga has many powers . Among them, Yoga helps with flexibility and strenght but it also brings people together, help people manage better their stress, and increase their self-care and self-love. Brenda's goal is for her students to leave the class feeling stronger and more in love with themselves :-)
Brenda's classes are dynamic, fun and there is always room for some play time, suitable for beginner and advanced.
