Aerial Beginners


This class is taught by:

Koreen Clements

Studio Director and yoga teacher 
 
In my previous life I was a neuroscientist. Whilst I enjoyed what I did, I was also highly stressed, anxious about keeping up, having difficulties sleeping and was wedging myself into my jeans. One morning when I was brushing my teeth, I looked in the mirror and saw a bingo wing (the soft flabby flesh of the upper arm) waving back at me. And I could see two future paths… the one that continued on if I did nothing, and the one I wanted. A couple days later I went to my first Bikram yoga class and never looked back. The excess weight melted off me within the first six weeks and even better I discovered that 90 minutes in a hot room was my panacea for the stress of academia.
 

In 2011, I moved to England, became a hot yoga teacher and started teaching in Sheffield. In 2012, I assisted at the Hot Yoga Doctor’s teacher training program and led the meditation component. My teaching centers around the values of alignment, acceptance and appreciation and I love to share theories and strategies for happy and healthy living from yoga, meditation, coaching and of course, science.

 

Over the years I’ve struggled – I’ve been angry, sad, frustrated, lonely, negative, and generally unhappy. And each time, I’ve found that yoga is the best tool to change my state and feel connected, tranquil and alive – now I’m here to help you find true peace and joy within yourself. I believe that yoga has the power to transform your life because it works on all levels – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual – changing your body, your thoughts, your emotions and your actions so that you can create the life you want.
