Restorative, Hatha Flow, Mindfulness
A YA accredited Senior Yoga Teacher and teacher trainer, Morven Hamilton has been practising yoga since 1995 and teaching it since 2008.
Morven completed 200 hrs of training in Akhanda Yoga with Yogi Vishvketu and Chetana Panwar in the Himalayan town of Rishikesh, India in 2008. She went on to do 500 hour YA certification with Laura Gilmore at Bristol City Yoga in Bristol in 2010 and continues to enhance her teaching and practice with further training. Her specialisms include restorative and therapeutic yoga, yoga and mindfulness, Ayurvedic yoga and philosophy. She is also trained in Kundalini yoga.
Morven’s roots are in the Akhanda school of holistic Hatha yoga although she has studied several approaches over the years. She respects and honours the traditions of Hatha yoga whilst leaving room for creativity and self-expression. Her approach is a playful, alignment based method which leads the practitioner to embody the yogic precepts of calm, kindness and wonder.
Morven is also a student of Mindfulness and has completed teacher training on the Breathworks Mindfulness for Health course. Mindfulness has a presence in all of Morven’s teaching and she has developed a Yoga and Mindfulness course which integrates the two disciplines.
She teaches on the Bhagavad Gita, Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, mindfulness and meditation, yoga and mindfulness and restorative yoga. She runs CPD courses in Ayurvedic yoga, Yoga and mindfulness, Hatha and Philosophy for teachers and serious students of yoga.
Morven’s aim is to share yoga’s vital tools for self-empowerment and healing. Her own journey with Yoga began with an intuition that this ancient practice contains the secrets to health, happiness and peace, and she teaches from her own transformational experience.
