I thought I would share some information about Hannah Turner our yoga teacher who will be leading The Complete Retreat Yoga Brunch Club on Saturday19th January.
Hannah runs Hannah does Yoga and is an internationally qualified yoga teacher who has been on her yoga path from a very young age. After finishing school, she travelled to India and Nepal and it was here that she took her yoga and spiritual journey to the next level, incorporating not just yoga asana but all the aspects of yoga into her everyday life. Deepening her yoga practice and also taking her first steps towards teaching, she spent her time there exploring the intricate studies of yoga and spirituality (and meeting the Dalai lama).
After returning, Hannah decided to pursue her passion of promoting yoga and wellbeing and swiftly signed up for yoga teacher training in traditional Hatha and Vinyasa in Bali. From here she realised how powerful yoga teaching can be to meaningfully change people’s lives.
Her classes are varied. From dynamic Vinyasa Flow integrating alignment, core work, and breathing techniques with basic poses and creative sequencing, to grounding Hatha classes with an emphasis on restorative asanas and ayurvedic cleansing techniques.
In conjunction with yoga, Hannah loves nature. Her hobbies are, hiking, cycling, rock climbing, running and other outdoor activities. Her classes promote a balance of cleansing the mind and soul through yoga and the body through adventure and fresh mountain air.
Hannah was drawn to yoga as a form of therapy. From a young age she suffered with disordered eating, from anorexia to binge eating. Hannah thanks yoga for her recovery. The path of yoga allowed her to slowly learn about self love, eating vibrant foods that serve the body and using meditation skills to combat negative emotions. She runs her own eating disorder therapy programmes; an online platform for yoga, meditation, and healing for those going through what she has also experienced.
In addition to teaching yoga, Hannah is passionate about spreading the message of the first Yama of yoga “Ahimsa”, non violence, and enjoys living a cruelty free life on a plant based vegan diet, as well as reaching out and volunteering; from Tibeaten refugees to a turtle sanctuary and promoting peace and love through action. This is a message Hannah wishes to deliver through her yoga classes and workshops, step by step, creating a more loving world.
