Hannah : Brown
Hannah came to yoga in 2010, drawn initially for medical reasons. She has Joint hyper-mobility Syndrome and also suffered from chronic pain for many years as a result of experiencing spinal injuries and nerve damage through work-related injuries and a car accident.
Hannah then embarked upon a self-healing journey and has taught yoga since late 2013, alongside her daily yoga practices.
In 2010, Hannah started to study and practice yoga under the guidance of Steve Harrison at the Yoga Sanctuary, Southampton, UK, and it simply transformed her life. Hannah completed her 200 hour yoga teacher training programme over a period of 18 months there, graduating in 2014 and then studied a further 18 months of an advanced teacher training programme. Over 6 years, she studied a number of yoga, meditation, scripture and philosophy courses and discovered a profound love for mantra and music, kirtan there.
Hannah relocated to Austria in July 2016, though she remain strongly connected to the Yoga Sanctuary and practices online almost daily with Steve and the sangha. Hannah draws inspiration from all that she learned there, and continues to learn.
Hannah also finds guidance and inspiration through her self study, through people she meets, many other philosophical and spiritual teachers through their books and videos, and from mother nature herself.
Mother Nature is one of my greatest teachers. In my spare time, I love to get out into the mountains, to hike and in winter, to ski. I enjoy spending time forest bathing, barefoot walking, toe dipping and swimming in cold lakes and rivers. I also enjoy cycling, gardening and I love to sing, make music and dance.
