LOUISE CURRAN – TEACHER PROFILE
Louise’s introduction to yoga came at a young age with yoginis Mum and older sister in the home. During her early working life she went to yoga classes in local gyms and really only felt the physical benefits of yoga. It wasn’t until the move to Ireland in 2008 that she began to explore yoga inside the body and became aware of and experienced the connection of mind and body through the breath.
To continue this exploration, in 2013 she embarked on a 200 hour Yoga Alliance Certified Teacher Training Programme at The Ananta Yoga Studios led by David Curtis of Vinyasa Yoga Dublin. David’s approach to teacher training encourages the cultivation of a regular & established self-practice and an honest path of self-discovery before taking this personal wisdom & experience and sharing it with others. Louise is extremely grateful for David’s wisdom and guidance.
In addition, Louise has attended Brian Siddhartha Ingle’s Somatics courses at The Ananta Yoga Studios. She has also completed Yoga Therapy Ireland’s Yoga for Sports course and the Irish Yoga Association’s Chair Yoga. She continues to attend relevant workshops and training to enhance and further her learning.
Louise began teaching beginners Hatha Yoga through the Vinyasa system at The Ananta Yoga Studios under the guidance of Liz Richards towards the end of her three year training. Now fully qualified, Louise continues to teach at Ananta and has added more classes to her schedule. She is grateful for the opportunity to teach and the consistent encouragement and support that Liz has provided since Louise’s first class at The Ananta Yoga Studios.
Louise has also completed her certification in Yoga Ed’s Professional Institute 1 Foundations -Teaching Children’s Yoga and also Professional Institute 2 Building Blocks -Teaching Teen Yoga and is teaching Children, Teens and Enable Ireland Children’s Yoga at The Ananta Yoga Studios. The exploration of yoga through the eyes of Children and Teens is an enriching experience and it is wonderful to offer the younger generation the benefits of yoga – improved physical, mental & emotional health as well as social & academic skills.
Louise’s other loves are her husband, family, friends and her dog who loves to take them walking and has her running around at dog agility club!
