Vivienne

The studio owner, Vivienne, has lived in the Franklin area for the last 18 years, is a mother of three and a yoga teacher who is passionate about bringing the benefits of yoga to all her students, whatever their abilities. 

Vivienne

For Vivienne, yoga is all about quieting the mind, turning the focus inward, and becoming present.

She is a compassionate teacher who encourages students to deepen their awareness and understanding of both their bodies and minds. She loves the idea of students coming home to the studio and finding a familiar sequence each day, sufficient enough so that you get a gauge on how you feel but varied enough to keep you on your toes and continue learning. What we are doing in the room is also all about improving what happens to you off the mat. The poses keep the mind interested and focussed while on a deeper level knowing that the poses enable you to become more connected and in tune with your body and your mind.

After ten-plus years of dedicated yoga and experiencing first-hand the healing benefits to both her health and mind, Vivienne made the decision to dedicate the next stage of her life to sharing her love of yoga with others. “Yoga has enabled me to grow stronger mentally, emotionally, and physically and become more flexible both on and off the mat. Yoga inspires me to live my life more truthfully and each moment more mindfully.”

Ian

Ian came to hot yoga via an unusual route. As a career Policeman in the UK, and NZ much of his time was spent as an undercover operative that proved the importance of maintaining his strength of mind. 

Ian

After leaving the Police, he fulfilled a prolonged dream to write a book and in the process, discovered a greater passion for writing than he could have imagined. He began writing full-time using his previous police career as the inspiration for a series of crime novels.

He started practicing yoga at Hot Yoga Asylimb in 2017 to improve his physical and mental well-being. Practice soon became another passion and in 2019 completed an intensive teacher training programme in Bali. He qualified as an accredited yoga instructor. He began formally teaching in February 2020. Ian’s found both practicing and teaching both helps and improves the writing process.
