I started my yoga journey whilst on holiday in Goa in 2000 and have been practising Ashtanga yoga for over 19 years now.
I began teaching in 2010 having completed my Yoga Alliance 200-hour RYT Teacher Training in Ashtanga in 2009 with Brian Cooper. I am qualified with Yoga Alliance Professionals, as a Senior Yoga teacher with over 900 hours training and over 9 years teaching experience.
I have been fortunate to have practiced at the Shri K Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute in Mysore, India with Shirath.
I have attended David Swenson’s Teacher Training workshop in Manchester, which was an amazing experience, honour and privilege and I have attended ashtanga workshops by Matt Ryan, Manu Jois, Matthew Sweeney, Joey Miles, Kino McGregor and David Williams.
Following the passing of my beautiful little girl Scarlet, after a difficult battle with brain cancer, diagnosed when she was just 4 years old, I needed a different type of yoga practice and so studied Yin and MBSR Restorative Yoga Therapy with the Mindful Yoga Academy. I felt I needed some balance of Yin and Yang in my life and practice through this difficult and on-going grieving time of my life. Yin and Restorative Yoga Therapy has supported me and I share these practices in the hope that they can help others who may need support particularly for stress and anxiety and grief.
I am passionate about Yin Yoga. I love practising Mindful Yin and teaching yin. I studied Advanced Yin Yoga with Norman Blair and Sarah Lo and have been honoured to assist Norman on his yin teacher training's in Manchester for the past 3 years.
I have also studied Pre and Post Natal Pregnancy Yoga with Uma Dinsmore Tuli which including lots of Yoga Nidra and further studied at Yoga London and now teach weekly Pre-natal Pregnancy Yoga Classes to support expecting mothers in my local community.
I have recently completed a 200 hour Teacher training in Dynamic Spiral Yoga and Yin Fascial Yoga with the amazing Beta Lisboa and Simon Calder.
I am honoured to be able to teach yoga and to pass on what I have learnt to others and am grateful to my teachers for passing on their learnings to me.
My yoga practice brings peace and calm into my life and a huge sense of well-being. It keeps me strong both physically and mentally and will always play an important part in helping me to keep focus and balance in my life. Losing my little girl and watching her brave battle with cancer has change my life. The one thing that has kept me going through all the difficult times and what will keep my going into my future is my yoga, but also being able to pass on and share what I have learnt to others.
I dedicate my practice and offer my teachings of yoga in the name of Scarlet-Rose Kearns, my brave little warrior, a great and inspirational, warm-hearted, always smiling. teacher and give thanks to all the teachers I have learnt from and from all the students that teach me how to teach yoga.
Om Shanti Shanti Shanti Om
